One of my New Year’s resolutions was to finish the reviews for my honeymoon to Bali in November 2013. So here we go with Part 4 so I can check it off my to-do list. Also, we’re going to the Maldives next month and I don’t want a backlog when it comes time to sharing photos on here!

After a glorious week in Ubud and Seminyak, we journeyed to the Ayana Resort & Spa perched on the cliffs above Jimbaran Bay. While the Maya in Ubud had its isolated jungle charm and the W in Seminyak had its lively atmosphere, the Ayana was by far the most luxurious. The property used to belong to Ritz-Carlton. I’ve never been to a Ritz-Carlton so you’ll get no comparisons from me on that.
We arrived mid-afternoon and had to wait about three hours before we could check in. So we had some lunch in the Club lounge, changed into swimsuits and lounged by the pool, and two hours later the room was still not made up. We were given the option to immediately be taken to a normal Club room (as booked) or we could wait an extra hour for a two-room suite upgrade. We obviously chose to wait for the suite.
I don’t have much more to say on the hotel. The views were beautiful, the food was delicious, and the Rock Bar was amazing. I’ll let the photos speak for me.
