Finally – Life’s A Beach

The beaches are open again – why not check out six of our favourite seaside spots…

Belmond Jimbaran Puri


Few properties have ever ticked all my boxes. Some can be too big, some too small, too off-the-beaten path or not far enough away from the madding crowd. Yes, in the world of resorts the ideal balance is hard to find. So it is a breath of fresh air conjoined with a huge sigh of relief when you step through the doors of Belmond Jimbaran Puri.


As guests wander around the vast grounds they come across the central infinity pool of blue and green natural stone tiles. The Beach restaurant, Nelayan has VIP seating for the glorious famed Bali sunsets, as does the nearby Puri Bar. These moments of barefoot luxury are unrivalled on the island of Bali. In my book any way, and I have been here for 25 years!

The food, organic as much as possible, covers all the fabulous gourmet bases. In addition to Neleyan, Tunjung Restaurant is elevated to overlook the lotus pond and at night it just oozes elegant candle lit romance. The menus of both offer Mediterranean, Indonesian and Asian flavours, offering amongst other items, the freshest of fish caught straight from the seas in front of the resort.





Envy at Holiday Inn Baruna


Relax and enjoy fun in the sun and glorious sunsets at Envy, set in the beachside tropical gardens at Holiday Inn Baruna Bali. Opening daily from 11am, Envy is offering 30% off all food and beverages until July 31st with a menu that offers a variety of classic grills, small plates, sharing platters and indulgent cocktails.

Uluwatu’s Revamped Karma Beach Has Reopened

karma beach

One of Bali’s most beloved beachside retreats is excited to announce its reopening –  the recently revamped Karma Beach is again trading as usual. The much-loved luxury venue perched on the iconic Uluwatu reef will be celebrating its return with a special ‘Golden Hour’ to mark the occasion.

The evening treat for all guests will be available between 5.30 and 6.30pm, seeing select cocktails available for the special price of 110K++, sangria and mojito jugs for 440K++, and Bintang buckets for 160K++.

The news of Karma Beach’s reopening will come as a delight to Bali residents and visitors alike, with the venue’s status as one of the island’s most adored experiences cemented late last year after debuting a major renovation. The venue underwent an extensive revamp courtesy of the efforts of lauded designer Tina Kirschner, who drastically redesigned the space to embrace a more tropical feel. “We’re keeping the typical Karma deconstructed beach vibe but with a more modern, sexy twist,” she explains.

The extensive changes undertaken by Karma Beach mean the space is now separated into two distinct offerings; Karma Beach Dining, and Karma Beach Bar. The former has seen a drastic seat increase from 87 to 110 due to the addition of more decking, bar seating, and large round communal dining offerings facing the beach for bigger groups. Wet weather protection is now also available, courtesy of a new thatched roof to protect diners when weather is less than perfect. Foodies will be pleased to note an expansion of the edible offerings with the introduction of a new pizza oven and sushi bar, alongside a bamboo seafood barbecue among more.

Please note, there is a minimum charge credited in F&B for all guests and bookings remain essential at info@karmabeach.com / +62-361-8482205
