Cool Pools: RIMBA Jimbaran Bali


By: Five Star Alliance

A central feature of RIMBA Jimbaran Bali's modern design is the ark-shaped lobby, designed in the style of a ship surrounded by one hectare of water bodies. These include six distinct swimming pools, each offering a different experience and colored a different shade of blue from their mozaic design. The pools are connected by a network of waterfalls, fountains and streams, and are located on different levels to create a multi-layered aquatic environment. From the lobby, the pools appear to cascade down like Balinese rice terraces, nestled amidst the surrounding forest and reflecting RIMBA’s stunning sunset views.
