Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran is an elegant resort set by the pristine white sands of Jimbaran Bay on Bali’s south-western coast. Its overlooks a 1,300 square metres swim-able salt water lagoon and features 118 guest rooms, suites, penthouses, and villas beautifully designed with a contemporary style infused with Balinese culture.
The concept for Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran is to provide a destination that exudes timeless chic & culture. Timeless chic is seen in the presence of art/graphics, midcentury aesthetics in the furniture (guestrooms) and asymmetric designs. The designs are more understated oddities rather than in-your-face eccentricities. An example would be the varied designs of wallsconces/pendant lights in the guestrooms and the mid-century inspired desk chairs as opposed to the typical ergonomic chairs.
Culture is established in the juxtaposition of heritage/traditional elements with contemporary ideas. An example would the headboards that we have in the rooms. Batik prints are scaled up to add visual texture and a sense of location for the guests. As Jimbaran is known to be a fishing village, design elements of this industry can be seen on the graphics, in the use of recycled boat timber as a material and in the blue tones around the hotel.
Le Meridien Bali overall feels fresh and upbeat. You wake up in a bedroom with a scaled up batik print headboard and immediately get a sense of place. The size of the property is adequate enough to encourage the traveller to go around the village or to the beach; then have a more secluded place to come back to.
