As it completes a dramatic, two-year renovation of 147 villas, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay has saved the best for last with the upcoming opening of the Imperial and Royal Villas.Scheduled to open 15 May, the resort’s villas have been entirely rebuilt from the ground up based on individual designs by the late Jaya Ibrahim. With a contemporary take on Balinese design and décor, the villas evoke the strong sense of place and traditional elegance for which Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay is renowned. Embracing the gardens and ocean views from every vantage point.The three-bedroom Imperial Villa has a residential-style 1300 squared meter layout – more than double the original villa’s footprint. On the upper entry level of the two-story design, the living room’s walls consist of floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which slide open to maximize the indoor-outdoor living and panoramic views. A thatch-roof shaded verandah leads to a geometrically-beautiful rooftop garden and lawn skirted by an infinity-edged water feature – an exclusive venue for intimate wedding ceremonies, celebrations and dining under the stars. The descent from the rooftop garden brings guests to the lower level with dining areas both inside and out, fully-equipped open kitchen, contoured infinity pool facing the ocean, multi-purpose room and gym, and a third bedroom that opens onto the pool terrace.The two-bedroom Royal Villa offers 750 squared meters of contemporary living. In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a separate children’s room fitted with trundle beds, while a connecting Deluxe Villa enables guests to expand their hideaway into a three-bedroom retreat with two pools. There are ample living and dining spaces both indoors and outdoors, and an ocean-front ‘Romeo and Juliet’ balcony adjacent to the infinity pool.
