Offering unsurpassed luxury and comfort, Conrad Bali Resort & Spa is a home away from home.
Everything is modern, bright and comfortable in the open grand lobby area. Staff members shuttle around in their khaki-style uniforms, giving them a relaxed, pleasant look — plus their warm smiles and earnest greetings lift the mood.
The reception area and lobby feature comfortable sofas and tables with a modern minimalist touch that reflects natural elements. There are no heavy Balinese-style furnishings like in most resorts. Both my partner and I found the place to be like five-star hotels in big cities. It was like a home away from home. From the comfortable sofa facing the Indian Ocean, we filled out the check-in form while sipping on a fresh tropical welcome drink. The view is magnificent, a panorama of blue sky and ocean. The weather was warm and humid, but our spirits were joyous because we were going to experience another luxurious adventure with Conrad.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, all designed to maximize the views of the resort, lagoons, gardens or beach from the veranda. Our room faces the ocean – a breathtaking view. Inside the room, we found contemporary Balinese artwork. The floors are light cream-coloured marble, the roof tiles are terracotta and handrails are coconut timber. There is a huge door separating the bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom is as large as the living room and bedroom, and includes a shower stall and bathtub large enough for a truly luxurious soak.
Who can sleep without a comfortable pillow? At Conrad, there’s a complete list of pillow options available to choose. The normal pillow in all rooms is the Medium Pillow made of Dacron. It ensures correct sleeping posture and helps prevent back as well as neck problems. Curious, we did some investigating and found out that a lot of Indonesians choose the Bolster Pillow, it is an additional support for another pillow, an extra comfort for lazy mornings. The Japanese love the Contour Pillow made of Latex. It is specially designed to gently cradle the neck and head, ideal for side sleepers. Lots of Europeans and Australians go for the Feather Bolster Pillow made of duck down. It is very comfortable. Conrad delivers maximum comfort for every guest, which is why it offers so many pillow choices, to ensure guests get the best night’s sleep possible.
You will never go hungry staying here, Relax over the ultimate beachfront BBQ, feel the sand beneath your toes and the sea breeze in your hair as you savour a sumptuous selection of fresh vegetables, seafood and locally-sourced meats. Set in the luxurious surroundings of the Conrad Suites, facing the pool, the atmosphere at RIN is calm and seductive. The restaurant is elegant and stunning, boasting indoor and outdoor dining areas, we have to say that during our stay, RIN was our favourite restaurant. The night was so beautiful and the sky so clear, we decided to dine al fresco. RIN serves a contemporary take on the authentic flavours of Japanese cuisine. RIN’s menu blends and combines the five basic tastes of sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. The dishes are very beautifully presented and the taste is simply full of flavours.
Eager to try some of the resort’s offerings, we headed to Jiwa Spa, where we had the signature Ocean Flow massage in one of the spa garden pavilions. The massage combines smooth, rhythmic strokes with firm acupressure akin to the movements of ocean waves. With each stroke, I was transferred to nirvana.
Set in an E shape, the 6.8 hectares of manicured gardens at Conrad Bali have stunning water features of approximately 9,500 square metres, including 4,000 square metres of swimming area with cascading waterfalls. The property is so fresh and blue, the lagoon swimming pool always attract people for a plunge. Conrad Bali Resort & Spa is as breathtaking as the deep blue ocean.
