As Bali has been nominated as TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice number one world travel destination, it would come as no surprise that a lot of Australians are starting to pack their bags, ready to soak up the Indonesian sun. For those looking for somewhere to stay while on the island, AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali has made the list of Top 15 Most Luxurious Resorts in Bali by Qantas Travel Insider.

AYANA is named after a ‘place of refuge’ in Sanskrit and the name is more than fitting.

While here, you can enjoy majestic ocean views along its 1.3km coastline above the beautiful Jimbaran Bay, plus choose from 12 swimming pools and 18 restaurants and bars. The combined resort offers 693 guest rooms and suites and 78 luxurious villas complete with private plunge pools and a spectacular ocean backdrop.

It also boasts 15 purpose-built wedding venues including the avant-garde Champa Garden for grand-scale events and SKY, a unique walkway that appears to float 35

metres  above the Indian Ocean, with endless views melting into the horizon.

The resort is suitable for all ages, with plenty on offer for leisure seekers and children. Take your pick of the 18-hole golf putting course, two tennis courts, a jogging path or two fitness centres, while the kids can keep busy in the two kids clubs. Other resort highlights include the 22,000 square metre Thermes Marins Thalasso spa, with one of the world’s largest Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pools, and the Spa on the Rocks villas set amidst the Indian Ocean.
