Jimbaran is home to some of the best luxury hotels on the island. You can get wonderful food at the Ayana,, Four Seasons, Intercontintental and many more. They are all lovely, easy to locate and charming. BUT sometimes, you don’t want to pay hotel prices. There is a huge difference between the cost of a meal in a hotel and that of a private restaurant. Here are some good independent places to try in and around Jimbaran. There are more to add to the list! Please add your own in the comments
