On the stunning north west coast of Bali is The Menjangan, a peaceful retreat located in the heart of unspoiled West Bali National Park. With over 175 species of plants and about 160 different bird species the park is a wonderful natural haven in one of the least-visited but most beautiful parts of the wonderful island of Bali.
The West Bali National Park is mountainous and consists of primary monsoon forest, mangrove forest, savannah, sea grass, coral reefs, sandy beaches and deep sea waters. At nearby Menjangan Island you'll find colourful coral reef gardens, making it perfect for snorkelling and diving.
Explore the jungle on foot, jump on a mountain bike or perhaps experience the park's beauty on horseback. Whichever you choose, keep your eyes peeled for the thriving bird life, the unique Menjangan deer, perhaps a monitor lizard sunning himself on a warm rock or even a family of monkeys in search of lunch. If snorkelling and diving don't appeal then kayaks are available allowing you to explore the best of the bay and mangrove maze.
The Menjangan resort is relaxed, casual and quiet, with the emphasis very much on restoring calm. It covers quite a large area which adds to the feeling of peace and tranquility, so double- decker safari-style minibuses carry guests smoothly and easily between the resort's various accommodations, dining spots and facilities - including the unspoiled beach. The buses are equipped with spotlights for impromptu animal spotting after dark – you never know what you might see!
The resort is hard to beat if you seek a place to appreciate the sound of birdsong, the whisper of trees in the ocean breeze and the surprising delights of marine life witness while snorkelling or diving.
