Plataran Menjangan, Bali
A stay at Plataran Menjangan is like no other in Bali. Tucked away in the protected sanctuary of West Bali National Park, Plataran is a truly luxurious hideaway, but is also a place to find a natural wilderness and inject a completely unique experience to your Bali holiday.
For a start the location of Plataran is close to Menjangan Island which is one of the best snorkeling and diving spots in Bali, so if you are after an unspoilt underwater encounter then this is the place for you. The resort also has its very own dive centre and boat to take you to the island. You can also snorkel on the offshore coral reef from the resort’s pontoon and beach. The flora and fauna of the national park is completely different from the lush jungle interior of Bali. Here you’ll find more lowland and mangrove forests, offering a whole host of land-based adventures. Wildlife lovers can spot over 175 species of plants and 167 species of birds. Its diverse array of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians includes some of the world’s rarest animal species. These include the Java Sparrow, Menjangan Wild Deer, and the endangered Bali Starling, which is endemic to Bali. Ranger guided walks and cycle trails and even horse-riding treks are a great way to discover the park.
Accommodation is divided into Forest, Ocean and Two-Bedroom Villas which are all similarly designed with authentic Indonesian touches, such as the antique Javanese door frames, beautiful four-poster beds, vaulted wooden ceilings, and indoor-outdoor bathrooms. The only difference is the location. A newer addition is the Ocean Mangrove Villas, with a brighter open plan modern beach hut style with very high ceilings and huge outdoor terraces, located on a small mangrove beach.
After all this activity, retreat to the luxury of the lodge. With its own beach you can relax to the sound of the lapping waves, however this area is tidal so there is also an infinity pool with poolside service and a Balinese spa. The Octagon Ocean Club is the resort’s main dining venue, offering Asian and international cuisine. Wantilan Kitchen also offers a delicious selection of Indonesian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
