10 Reasons why Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort will become every Honeymooner’s Secret Paradise

Bali, as one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Southeast Asia, harbours some of the best resorts in the world. However, some might say with its increasing popularity, it gets commercialized and crowds are hard to get away from. For couples looking for a peaceful getaway, we found just the hideout for you.

With Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, you can look forward to a brand new resort experience in one of the most quaint and serene parts of Bali – Lepang beach. Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort, featuring luxurious accommodation set upon a beautiful black beach, makes the perfect paradise for any newlywed couple. When we heard the news, there was no waiting around. Once their doors opened in December 2016, we packed our bags and flew across to Bali to see it for ourselves. We came back with 10 reasons why you should head there too.

10 Reasons why Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Resort Bali is the perfect choice for your Honeymoon

1. Enjoy the epitome of serenity

Living in a city has its perks, everything is closely situated and there is always something to be done. But for your honeymoon, the hustle and bustle might just be the exact opposite of what you need. Your honeymoon is the first trip that you both take as a married couple. It is a romantic vacation for rest, relaxation and discovery.

It seems that Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort has gotten that on point. Tucked away in a secret spot of Bali, you get a tranquil and refreshing experience here. Mornings are welcomed by the beauty of the sunrise and spectacular beach views. Evenings are accompanied by stunning sunsets and soft sounds of waves hitting the shores in the background. Imagine a relaxing meditation tape. At Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort, there’s no tape. The entire experience is real.  It’s dreamy and beautiful.

2. Be captivated by the stunning sunset every evening

The stunning pink sunset – it’s unbelievable!

One of the most unique experiences in the resort is the gorgeous pink sunset that ushers in every evening. You don’t have to climb mountains or temples just to see a stunning sunset like this. Every evening, the soft rays shine upon the black beach the resort is set upon. The dramatic black volcanic sand is fine and dazzles under the sunlight. Lie here with a book in one hand and a cocktail in another, and await to watch the captivating pink sunset. It is incredible.

Built to look like a luxury condominium, staying here long enough will make you feel like it’s home. The suites come with either a jacuzzi or plunge pool right at your private balcony. The experience of dipping in a plunge pool or soaking up in the jacuzzi the entire time while facing the ocean sea is surreal. Check out the different rooms here.

4. Enjoy a revitalizing spa experience at Tirta Spa

No honeymoon is complete without a couple spa experience. I make it a point to always visit the spa, as it is the perfect place to unwind and refresh yourself after a long period of hectic wedding preparations.

Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort_Tirta Spa 2“Tirta” is the Sanskrit word for “Holy Water”. At Tirta Spa, they focus on bringing you a rejuvenation journey with their pampering spa services with a soothing touch. Upon reaching, we were escorted by friendly spa staff to their exotic garden huts facing the ocean. We were instantly transported into a paradise of pure relaxation. I felt stress and tiredness melt away from my body. It was one of the most enriching spa experiences I have had.

Tirta Spa uses traditional healing techniques with a ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach. They utilize organic and natural quality ingredients, combined with Balinese ‘Taru Pramana’ to bring you one of the best spa experiences you can possibly get in Bali. Each spa hut comes with an outdoor rain shower and a gorgeous stone tub for relaxing soaks. See their spa menu here.

5. Delight in a rich dining experience

It’s no secret that we love good food. I have never been more impressed at the food choices available at a resort. The ala-carte menu at Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort presents you an extensive array of options to choose from under each section appetizers, main courses, desserts and drinks. Their appetizers are very nicely presented too!

We were so thankful to have arranged for a full-board stay, which I would highly recommend for your stay. Each day comes with a free cocktail. My favourites were the calamari rings dipped in sweet chilli as well as the sirloin beef steak that tastes divine. The local delights are also pretty good. Also, be sure to try their refreshing specialty – the chardonnay cocktail.

There are two resort restaurants – Bumbu Restaurant and Jivva Beach Club where you can get your bites from. The Senja poolside bar serves up exotic cocktails and mouth-watering snacks. If you want to laze in bed, opt for 24-hour in room dining, where you can also enjoy the same restaurant menu.

6. A space perfectly built for self discovery and rejuvenation

There is a reason why Wyndham Hotel Group’s first Bali resort among its 8,000 resorts is in a secret and tranquil spot, tucked away from crowded places and tourists. It gives you a dedicated space to spend that ‘me time’ and ‘we time’ that we all desperately lack. A honeymoon here is about peace and enjoyment in an exclusive and serene setting.

The Tirta Yoga deck is a spot for yoga lovers. Set in a traditional garden setting just metres away from the beach, this space is dedicated to finding yourself through yoga and meditation. Enjoy the sea breeze with nature as your backdrop, as you practice in this eco-friendly open space bamboo studio.

There is also a gym available for you to keep up with your fitness routine and a sauna for you to unwind after a long day.

7. Chill out over great music

It cannot be paradise without music. I absolutely agree. Jivva Beach Club makes your evenings more lively with a DJ spinning up great tunes. Order a cocktail from the bar and have great music entertain you. The vibes here are the best!

8. Go out and explore

For those who want to explore a piece of Bali, Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Bali Resort has drivers that you can hire for day trips at about S$50-60. It is very convenient and flexible as the driver will bring you to the spots you want to go to. The car will accompany you the entire day for pick up and drop offs, so you can hit as many destinations as you want.

Nearby attractions to the resort include the Bali Safari and Marine Park and world-famous surf beach, Keramas. However, the resort was too comfortable, and we were inspired to have a more relaxing trip. Hence, we did not pack it with too much activities and only headed out to see the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, and Mount Batur – which were gorgeous!

10. A warm touch of hospitality

When it comes to staying at posh resorts, sometimes the classy upscale vibes might pass off as cold.
