The Club InterContinental Life in BaliLike0

Trips to Bali never get old. Hotels are a dime a dozen. Even the location on where you decide on staying, could never go wrong. Bali is just one of those islands that you keep searching for more…and you find a new world of exploring, truth and new delicacies.

During my 4th visit to Bali, I received lots of questions on where I’m staying, especially at the InterContinental in Bali. Because of that, I have gathered all the Q &A in one article.

I have partnered up with InterContinental Bali to work closely on the Club Intercontinental and the benefits when booking into one of the club rooms.

The hotel’s grounds are designed to make you feel right on the island’s core on the shores of Jimbaran Beach and you can find one of the best places to watch the sunset at Sunset Beach Bar & Grill.

Is the InterContinental Bali kids friendly?

Yes! Planet Trekkers is dedicated in keeping your kids entertained from 9am to 10pm daily! Kids get to enjoy indoor and outdoor activities such as cooking with a chef, yoga classes, arts & crafts and educational games. Staying at the Club room also gave us unlimited children’s programme complimentary at Planet Trekkers.

How far is the hotel from the airport?

The hotel is approximately 15 minutes away from the airport. Having booked a Club Room, we had the advantage of having an exclusive airport transfer with an instant check in and check out. Our Emirates flight arrived at 10pm local time and after 9 hours of flying, Chloe was ready to jump into bed!

What are the advantages of booking a club room?

The Club Intercontinental provides lots of added value when staying at the InterContinental Bali. First, the 24 hour butler service that was always helpful! In the mornings, we had the choice of 4 different breakfast venues as opposed to just one: 1) The Club InterContinental Gourmet Breakfast 2) Club InterContinental Pool 3) Taman Gita Restaurant and 4) Jimbaran Garden Restaurant. We also had Access to the club lounge 24 hours where we spent most afternoons during our stay having afternoon tea and cake while I finish some work online. Most of all, the club pool exclusively for club members with its own bar and dining terrace!

What is there to do around the hotel?

Our butler and concierge had organized a day trip from the hotel. We visited for the second time Tegenungan Waterfall early morning with a wonderful guide who became our friend today, his name is Nyoman and we watched the sunset at Uluwatu, which I have been trying to get there on many occasions but due to poor weather conditions in the past, I wasn’t able to make it! The hotel is also on the Jimbaran beach strip which is beautiful to walk and watch the sunset.

What other activities are there in the hotel?

There are so many different activities such as water sports activities, Kayaking, Paddle board, surfing and lots more! If you are not into water activities, you will find others such as Yoga, Sunset tours around the fisherman village, or even learn how to make a balinese fruit plater decoration. I joined an aqua sport activity on one morning and if you are lucky, you will be able to witness the turtle release just before sunset.

I am gluten & dairy intolerant, can the hotel accommodate my requests?

I am sure they can!! I don’t eat dairy nor gluten and they managed my diet pretty great!

Does the property have a good spa to do a retreat?

The InterContinental Bali have exclusive and diverse treatments to suit everyone. You can have your spa day by the beach, in your room, by the pool or at the spa itself. They also have a beauty salon!

When is the best time to visit?

Visiting Bali is beautiful al year round! From July to December is considered high season and extremely busy.

Which is your favorite restaurant at the InterContinental Bali?

One of my favorite was KO Japanese restaurant and Chloe’s favorite too! It was teppanyaki night and the chef put on a great show!

Thank you to Intercontinental Bali Resort Hotel in Bali for inviting me on a project together to learn and understand more about the Intercontinental IC Club Lounge experience. Thank you to those who took the time to write to me and ask me the questions. Feel free to comment below if you would like to ask me anything else.

  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
  • Dubai still super hot but nothing a weekend at the pool won’t fix! It’s still summer here with 40 degrees Celsius... What’s the weather like where you are?
