The sparing use of massive walls means that all these dining rooms offer a generous view of the ocean . Come at noon and you will see a clear view of the sparkling sea , or come late in the afternoon for the scenic sunset .

Food wise, the hotel serves as Jimbaran is known for : fresh seafood . Executive chef cook Greg Bunt has brought the luxury of fine dining at this establishment, which is actually quite laid back in many ways , and the combination works well .
