Exclusive Reasons to Unplug in Bali at Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay – Nearly everywhere you travel today, the ability to hook up to your hotel or resort’s free WiFi is an expectation, especially at five-star resorts. It’s included standard at all Four Seasons resorts, but this addition to your holiday can add up to missing out on a lot of what’s on offer, not to mention a nearly entirely anti-social getaway. Jimbaran Bay offers experiences for guests to encourage being ‘in the moment’ and leaving your phone in your room. With these exclusive experiences, you’ll find that a short disconnect from the social media world helps reconnect you to what’s most important in your life and the world surrounding you.
If you can keep a secret, this first experience will be unforgettable. In fact, this tour isn’t on anybody’s bucket list. This is because Jimbaran Bay and sister resort, Sayan, asks their guests to help maintain a level of secrecy on this temple tour that has to be seen in person to truly be appreciated. If you agree not to post any pics on your social media accounts, this three-hour-long tour will guide you from Sayan Resort through some of the region’s untouched farming villages. You’ll pass through several historic sites on your way to the water temple. You’re welcome to soak in the waters or just enjoy the serenity of an undiscovered location far removed from the world of selfies and posts.
In fact, many Hindu temples call Bali home. Jimbaran Bay and Sayan Resorts dissuade guests from taking the normal tours to the famous landmarks where the experience can be impeded by crowds. Instead, guests are encouraged to discover temples like Goa Gong. This temple from the 800s AD was built into a cave and can only be seen by appointment. The site is located very near to Jimbaran Bay, and the priest at the resort, Father Ngurah, will personally guide you through the cave temple and its numerous shrines. For a truly immersive experience, you can even schedule a melukat, a ritual of water purification. Described as soul-cleansing, it’s definitely not appropriate to have your phone on your body!
If you’re ready to reconnect with the world around you, unplugging in Bali might be just the reset button you needed.
