Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali: A family friendly resort by the beach

Hungry Hong Kong


Movenpick, located in Jimbaran, is a large, luxurious resort perfectly suited for families looking for fun and sun in Bali. We loved all the convenient five star facilities including large pools, a full service spa, state of the art kids club, spacious modern rooms, and impeccable service. Kids will love the kids pools with one featuring slides and fountains and another shallow splash area built with toddlers in mind. The kids club houses incredible staff and two floors of entertainment for children of all ages. If you are looking for relaxation, lounge in one of their luxurious cabanas poolside and enjoy Movenpick ice cream and fresh coconuts. We felt very at home in our two bedroom family suite complete with three bathrooms, a large lounge area and balconies overlooking the resort. Don’t miss their dining options with relaxing lunches at Anarasa and their fun and delicious Seafood BBQ at the top of our list. Conveniently located only a short stroll or free shuttle ride to the beach, this is an ideal resort for an exciting and comfortable family vacation.


Anarasa, located in the family friendly and luxurious Movenpick, is a perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch or intimate dinner. We loved the varied menu including many classic Indonesian dishes, Western favourites and child friendly options. We highly recocomed the addictive Nasi Goreng Bali, juicy and fragrant Ayam Betutu, decadent Gruyere Burger, and fresh wood fired Pizzas. Everything was fresh, tasty and great for family dining. If you have little ones, check out the small kids dining area where they can play with the kids club staff, be entertained with colouring books, and eat at small, child friendly tables. A relaxing meal for parents and kids after a day of splashing in the pool.


Seafood BBQ

The Seafood BBQ at Movenpick was one of our favourite meals during our stay in Bali. Located near Jimbaran Beach, Movenpick have taken inspiration from the local seafood BBQs on the beach and brought it to the convenience of their resort. Book a table on the sandy island by the pool, and delve into a buffet of fresh seafood, delicious salad, great desserts, and live performances to top off the experience. We loved the mouthwatering line caught local mahi mahi and snapper, meaty octopus and couldn’t believe the size of their juicy prawns. They also have delicious cooked to order steaks and flavouful bbq chicken to satisfy. The live traditional dances were perfect for our kids and we loved the casual and invititing setting.  A fun dining experience for friends and family while staying in the Jimbaran area.

Jimbaran Beach

Jimbaran Beach is one of the most popular beaches for families travelling to Bali. You'll find a picture perfect stretch of sand, sweeping palm trees, and plenty of shady corners to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The area is also known for it's seafood resturants set right on the beachfront. Jimbaran style seafood barbeque incoprartes local fresh fish and shellfish marinated in traditional Balinese herbs and spices and grilled over charcoal. The fragrant smell will lure any foodie and the tables are set right in the sand so you can enjoy a cold beer and sunset while you dine. Our kids also couldn't get enough of the freshly grilled corned served by vendors walking along the beach. It's the ideal way to spend a casual and memorable evening delving into amazing food and scenery during your trip.

Other nearby attractions include watching the sunset from Uluwatu, a day at one of Canggu's bohemian beach clubs, or a shopping session on Seminyak's vibrant streets.
