The Menjangan: Review

Escape the tourist crowds and get back to nature within the secluded West Bali National Park. The Menjangan spans 382 hectares containing several buildings including the Bali Tower bistro and lounge, the Monsoon Lodge, beach villas, and a beachfront restaurant. Fitness fanatics will enjoy long walks or bike rides around the resort, keeping an eye out for local deer, monkeys, and birds. Alternatively, double decker safari busses are only a phone call away.

The Menjangan's uber remote location means guests have plenty of opportunities to relax. Take advantage of daily happy hour at the Bali Tower, try a morning yoga class, unwind by the pool, have a massage at the Mangrove Spa, or sit back with a book on a beachfront deck chair. Those feeling more energetic can choose from a range of organized activities like horse riding, kayaking, snorkeling, and birdwatching.

Best Parts:
  • Untouched nature. Lush forest with walking trails meters away from the sparkling turquoise ocean. Plenty of opportunities to spot native animals like deer, monkeys, and birds.
  • Organized activities including morning yoga classes, snorkeling, and horse riding.
  • 4x4 double decker safari busses to shuttle guests between Bali Tower, Monsoon Lodge, and the beach.
  • Beach villas. Wake up mere steps from the ocean's edge.
  • Mangrove Spa. Open air spa located on wooden boardwalks over the ocean. Privacy curtains provided.
Could Be Better:
  • Distance between buildings. 15-minute walk to reach Bali Tower restaurant from beach villas.
  • Restaurant options. Lack of affordable dining options outside the hotel.
  • National Park entrance fee. Rp200,000 (USD$12.13) per person per stay, Rp10,000 (USD$0.61) for Indonesian nationals and KITAS holders.
