THE FIRST resort in Bali to offer visitors a luxury ‘glamping’ experience has just opened its boutique tent flaps.
The Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Beach Camp and Dive Centre is set on 16 hectares beside a white-sand beach in Banyuwedang Bay in the north west of Bali. It caters to outdoor adventure enthusiasts with an appetite for indulgence, offering safari-style tented rooms and villas combined with a series of communal spaces crafted in bamboo and 'alang-alang' thatch.
Accommodation comprises 24 beach camp tents plus one- and two-bedroom cliff tent villas, all created to the highest standards in South Africa from robust top-quality canvas. This eco-friendly property is designed to blend with the environment and provide guests with a memorable, close-to-nature experience.
Each air-conditioned sleeping area is fitted with a merbau hardwood floor and furnished with a queen-size bed, a desk and a rattan-panelled wardrobe. Curtains and bamboo screens provide privacy while accessories include goatskin rugs, driftwood lamps, a mini-bar-fridge encased in a packing trunk, a TV and DVD player, and a picnic hamper of bathroom amenities.
The beach camp tents incorporate a bathroom area with a monsoon shower as well as an open-air deck, while each cliff tent villa has a separate bathroom fitted with a soaking tub, a sundeck and a private infinity pool.
Communal facilities include a cliff-edge infinity swimming pool, which also serves as a dive training pool. The resort's signature Pasir Putih Beach Club incorporates a restaurant and bar, an open kitchen and swimming pool. The cliff-top Pasir Putih Spa tent, with its reflexology deck and private waterfront spa pods, offers sunset views of Banyuwedang Bay and Mt Raung.
The five-star PADI dive centre and water sports centre offers scuba diving and snorkelling excursions to the sites surrounding Menjangan Island as well as non-motorised water sports such as kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding. Other outdoor activities include trekking, cycling, mountain biking, bird watching, horse riding and daytrips to nearby places of interest.
"Menjangan Dynasty Resort is already slated to be the choice of savvy travellers who are seeking a totally different experience combined with outdoor activities and a high level of service,” said Mr Kadek Susastrawan, Resort Manager.
“With more demand for boutique properties in secluded out-of-town locations, we are pleased to be opening at the right time in the right place."
