Visitors to the Villas at Ayana Resort in Jimbaran, Bali, can stay in one of 24 newly redesigned and reopened ocean-view villas that are designed with romantic escapes in mind. The secluded, one-bedroom retreats (about $1,100 per night) were expanded, with special focus given to opulent, new marble bathrooms, now 50 percent larger and equipped with hand-carved, Roman-style bathtubs and indoor/outdoor showers. The 3,200-square-foot villas’ patios are equipped with plunge pools surrounded on three sides by privacy fences.
Guests can customize their stays with a variety of intimate experiences, such as a floating brunch served in the private plunge pool, a flower bath at sunset, or a soothing in-villa couple’s massage from the award-winning, on-site Spa on the Rocks. Guests who choose to venture from their private oasis can enjoy the Friday-night Cultural Dinner at the Padi restaurant, which combines traditional Balinese cuisine with a performance by native Kecak dancers.
