Re-connect, relax and refresh with a school holiday break that’ll win over the whole family
SYDNEY, Australia – July 2018: The luxury integrated AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI, overlooking beautiful Jimbaran Bay is offering a fabulous deal on family-friendly accommodation for the spring school holiday break with the second room half price – making it an ideal time to say “see you later” to Sydney’s winter weather, and spoil the entire clan in style.
With its close proximity and easy airline access from Australia, Bali is an appealing alternative to traditional interstate school holiday destinations and boasts plenty of options to entertain everyone – from toddlers to teens, to Mums and Dads.
As Bali’s only truly integrated resort, guests are able to access and enjoy the facilities of both AYANA Resort and Spa and its sister property RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA – which means a choice of 12 swimming pools and waterslides and 19 restaurants and bars – all connected by lush landscaping and a network of waterfalls, fountains and streams. A regular free shuttle (styled as a traditional wooden tram) is on hand to ferry guests back and forth between the two properties, which both have access to the resorts’ exclusive white sandy beach, Kubu.
Younger kids will love the schedule of engaging activities at the professionally-staffed and recently renovated Kids’ Club, which has a trampoline, kids’ billiards table, playground equipment, table tennis table, flat screen TV and games consoles. Activities range from Balinese dancing and fish feeding, to chef-led cooking classes, kite-making, local sports and handicrafts. There’s also a babysitting service available upon request.
Of course, there’s plenty of action (or not) for the grown-ups too. Sunrise yoga with a view is a terrific way to start the day, and those keen for physical activity will enjoy cycling local trails, jogging the resort’s forested pathways or practising their golf putting. If something a little more laidback is more in your lane, relax with a book by one of the infinity pools with a view, try your hand at local batik craft, join a Balinese cooking class at the resort’s dedicated cooking school, or spend a morning making your very own perfume in the divine L’Atelier Parfums et Creations Studio.
Mums and Dads in need of some down time won’t want to miss Spa at AYANA, home to Thermes Marins Bali, which has been voted the ‘World’s Best Spa’ by the well-travelled readers of Conde Nast.
Blending well-known Balinese ancient rituals and remedies with the finest skin and facial products, the Spa’s signature treatments include a Hot Shell Massage, AYANA Fusion, Seven Chakra Dhara and Lava Stone Reflexology, all delivered with exceptional Balinese hospitality in a setting that’s second to none.
For a fun family day out, take the kids for a gourmet tour of the traditional local markets, survey the latest fresh finds at the Jimbaran Fish Markets, visit Uluwatu Temple or discover Balinese heritage on a roam through the gardens and statues of GWK Cultural Park. Another entertaining option is to ride the complimentary shuttle bus to the nearby Nusa Dua Bali Collection shopping centre, which is packed with stores selling international fashion brands, arts, toys and souvenirs.
Mealtimes are also made easy by the huge range of options at AYANA, meaning even the pickiest eaters are bound to find something to feast upon. From buffets and barbeques, to steak and seafood, traditional Balinese cuisine, Mexican and specialist afternoon teas – not to mention local restaurants beyond the resort – there’s a reason Bali is renowned for its flavoursome cuisine. AYANA is also home to the famous Rock Bar, BALI, and with priority access reserved for resort guests you will receive the best seats in the house for the most magnificent Balinese sunset.
And don’t forget to treat the entire family to a captivating Kecak dance performance under the stars during a cultural Balinese dinner at Kampoeng Bali restaurant.
