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.
