Bottom Line

The 78-unit Villas at AYANA Resort is a huge, opulent property on a private beach looking out over the sea. Villas are large and luxurious, with gorgeous bathrooms, garden terraces, and private plunge pools, but no kitchens. The property shares a plethora of amenities with the AYANA Resort and Spa, including a private beach, 11 pools, an 18-hole putting course, a spa, 15 restaurants serving a variety of cuisine types, and the famous cliffside Rock Bar, with beautiful ocean views. This resort is definitely a showstopper, with rates that reflect this. Travelers seeking a more intimate, cheaper option (albeit without the private beach) may want to consider the Kayumanis Jimbaran Private Estate and Spa instead.

The Villas at AYANA Resort

Scene

Luxury all-villa beach property popular with couples and families alike

The Villas at AYANA Resort is part of a massive, luxurious resort complex shared with AYANA Resort and Spa that features a wide range of amenities. The resort is remote and secluded, packed with stunning vistas and lush garden grounds, any there are so many activities on-site that guests may not feel the need to go elsewhere. There's a high staff-to-guest ratio, and guests are given 24-hour butler phones and personal service. Guests are greeted with welcome drinks, flower-filled baths in their villas, and free half-hour spa treatments (if room booked through hotel website). The clientele includes plenty of couples -- including honeymooners – and families with kids, but there is enough space to find a kid-free zone. The property is particularly popular with Japanese tourists. Note that proper attire is required in many of the bars and restaurants, which adds to the high-end feel of the resort.

There are 11 outdoor pools, including a children’s pool with waterslides and a beautiful saltwater infinity pool along the cliff’s edge, overlooking the beach below. There are also a rooftop pool and a two-tiered river pool. 

Thermes Marins Spa Bali is the resort’s full-service spa, with massages available in treatment rooms and on the beach.

All-Inclusive / Food

Numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes, including the famous ocean-facing Rock Bar

The resort offers 15 restaurants, including Kampoeng Bali, which serves traditional Balinese food such as suckling pig, accompanied by cultural performances in a Balinese village setting. Padi serves a pan-Asian mix of Indonesian, Indian, and Thai cuisine in an elegant outdoor dining room with thatched pavilions and a lily pond. Sami-Sami is an Italian-style trattoria on a bluff overlooking the Indian Ocean. Honzen -- the Japanese restaurant -- serves sushi, sashimi, and teppanyaki grills. There are also a steak house, a Chinese restaurant serving dim sum, and a restaurant that serves “global comfort food,” such as burgers and pizza. The Martini Club has a 50-cocktail menu, but it's the resort’s Rock Bar that's an island destination. The super chic Rock Bar is built into a cliff face overlooking the ocean; the sunset views are unmatched, and resort guests have priority when it comes to reservations. There are also six coffee shop/cafes on the property for quick bites or an afternoon latte, plus room service is available around the clock. Guests can also sign up for cooking classes for a fee.
