As a Luxury Corporate and Leisure Travel Specialist, I highly recommend visiting the Four Seasons Resorts in Bali. They are the ultimate luxurious getaway or corporate retreat.
After a short ride from Denpasar Airport, we were greeted on arrival at the resort with a refreshing ginger and lime iced mocktail, which we enjoyed whilst being checked in amongst the stunning backdrop that was Jimbaran Bay. We had arrived in Paradise!
We were amongst 147 Villas and 9 Residences in a patrolled secure compound, and a butler and golf buggy are standard residence inclusions. The compound makes for a perfect backdrop to entertain shareholders or dignitaries. The direct beach access and private pool allow for total privacy during and post meetings.
Looking for more business hotel reviews?
We were promptly escorted to our villa in one of the resort’s golf buggies, the preferred way to get around the island due to the intense Bali heat.
The resort had recently completed the first phase of their renovation; we noticed these perks within our Premier Ocean Villa. The renovation appeared seamless, from the outdoor lounge to the villa’s private pool.
We appreciated the little touches that many business savvy travellers have become dependent on. The international power adapters and complimentary high-speed wireless throughout made our experience that little bit more stress free.
Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay can cater for intimate groups or conferences of up to 150. Breakfast meetings can be conducted in the Taman Wantilan restaurant where dining is an experience not to be missed. The food is excellent with a vast array of options including traditional Balinese, Asian, American and a soup noodle bar, with traditional Indonesian flute music playing in the background to create a relaxing and holistic ambience.
If you're looking for a more intimate or private corporate setting, Sundara Beach House is the perfect venue for pre dinner Sunset Cocktails for smaller groups. Guests can then move upstairs to the private dining room for presentations and awards where a local live band is available to play during and after dinner with the backdrop of the magical Jimbaran Bay.
For those looking for unique corporate retreat options, your team has access to the Healing village Spa and Yoga at Nirvana Shanti Yoga Bale and the exclusive TropicSurf’s‘ Ticket to Ride’ program. The latter caters for all levels and provides convenient access to the island’s best breaks, windsurfing, ocean kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.
The service throughout the resort is faultless and personalized, carried out with the perfect level of executive professionalism.
