Jimbaran in Bali is known for fresh seafood, beautiful sunsets and luxurious resorts. Take a stroll with me around one of the most gorgeous resorts in the area, Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran. Be warned though. If you haven’t already booked a flight to Bali, then you may just be compelled to do that after finishing this article.
PS. If you can think of any friends who would love to go here, please share this post on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

The artistically decorated lobby/hub. The resort’s theme is art and beautiful pieces of art adorn every wall. In the back, Latitude8 cocktail bar serving up custom designed cocktails, a wide selection of wines and Illy coffee.
Balloons are released during a wedding and drift westward into the pink sky. So romantic. So magical.
Sit back and relax in the lobby/hub. No windows getting in the way of the perpetually gorgeous view.
