New spot on a fabulous old vista gives us cause to head North. Join us.
Prime Plaza Hotels & Resorts has taken the leap and opened Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Beach Camp and Dive Centre – a much anticipated, tented boutique retreat, on 16 hectares of land, beside a blissful white-sand beach lapped by the gentle waters of Banyuwedang Bay in Northwest Bali.
Catering to outdoor adventure enthusiasts with an appetite for indulgence, the safari-style tented rooms and villas, combined with a series of communal spaces crafted in bamboo and ‘alang-alang’ thatch, present a refreshing alternative in architectural style and five-star flair.
From here, enjoy a spellbinding vista that extends across a mangrove-entwined coastline to the lowland forests of West Bali National Park, taking in the tiny uninhabited Menjangan Island, the craggy folds of Bali Barat’s north facing ridges and the towering Mt Raung in East Java.
Delicious cuisine, intimate dining and the opportunity to interact with nature is what’s on offer, supported by excellent service from a team of safari-suited staff. This eco-friendly tented resort, the first of its kind in Bali, is designed to blend with the environment and provide guests with a memorable and exciting, close-to-nature ‘glamping’ experience.
Accommodation at Menjangan Dynasty Resort comprises 24 Beach Camp Tents, two one-bedroom Cliff Tent Villas and two two-bedroom Cliff Tent Villas, created to the highest standards in South Africa from robust top-quality canvas. The cool air-conditioned interiors of the tents captures the ambience of the classic safari club style with glass doors, natural materials and muted colours harmonised with blackened steel elements.
Equally striking – and in keeping with Menjangan Dynasty’s concept of leaving only a green footprint – is the exceptional design of the Resort’s lobby, beach club, spa pods, dive centre, and wantilan.
“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, the resort manager I Kadek Susastrawan told us. “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.” Anyone who fancies a trip there, we’re up.
