With a major renovation of its 147 ocean-view villas in 2017, the sumptuous village (complete with an authentic Balinese cooking school) pays homage to the island’s ancient heritage.

Take the littlest visitors to the resort’s Jimba Club for a crash course on Balinese dance or kite flying, or celebrate culinary craftsmanship at Taman Wantilan, where a brigade of specialty chefs cook up a spread of Asian and Western cuisine at open show kitchens.
