I needed calm and authenticity! Far away from the tourist crowd… Located to the Norwest side of Bali, lies in the national park named Bali Barat National park, The Menjanjan seemed to be the perfect destination to reconnect myself with nature 🙂
I decided to try this new adventure and cross the island from south to north to come to the Menjangan… The landscapes quickly changed to offer more authenticity. We regularly made stops along the way with our driver to take some photos because the scenery was absolutely breathtaking.
We chose accommodation in one of the Menjangan lodges, surrounded by the jungle with only animal songs all around you, it was amazing.
The lodge had a very comfortable room, a seating area and a spacious bathroom with shower. You can enjoy both comfort and nature, what a perfect deal 🙂
The Menjangan is extended on differents areas, you will find two restaurants, one is located at the Bali tower and the second is located on the Menjangan private beach. It’s possible to take your breakfast in these both places.
Breakfast is available à la carte and the set menu is very varied.
If you like spectacular sunsets, I can only recommend you to go to the top floor of the Bali Tower, you will not be disappointed with the spectacle that will be offered to you.
Travels between the different areas of the Menjangan like the restaurants and private beaches are ensured by safari cars available for any time of the day. It’s a very fun way to move and giving the impression of doing a real safari… We saw monkeys several times along trails leading to the private beaches but also some hinds. Animals and humans live in perfect harmony within the park, having no fear of humans. So keep your eyes open and your camera in your hands 🙂
The Menjangan offers several activities and has a diving center, a spa and a horse riding center. I can only highly recommend the diving because the seabed is absolutely gorgeous on the Menjangan Island.
I experienced an horse riding and it was a wonderful experience to cross the forests to the beach, a real connection with the nature 🙂
I recommend this place to people who want to experience the true facet of Bali and who love nature 🙂
