Welcome to the first edition of the Menjangan Dynasty Resort e-newsletter.
Allow us to take this opportunity to thank all of those who became our first guests and enjoyed the exciting ‘glamping’ experience in our tented retreat. We hope that the beautiful nature of Northwest Bali and the glamping stay left you with a memorable impression and a good story to tell your family, friends and colleagues.
Last week we welcomed some Indonesian celebrities at the Resort and received some very positive feedback. If you are in the area, feel free to visit Pasir Putih Beach Club for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or simply for a great day out on the beach.
We hope you enjoy reading our e-newsletter and we look forward to welcoming you at Menjangan Dynasty Resort.
A Slice of Maldives in Bali
“An enchanting retreat on a white sandy beach surrounded by a brilliant turquoise sea glimmering under the golden sun” is undoubtedly the kind of description that people associate with the Maldives. Now a similar luxury experience can be found on Bali’s northwest coast at a much more affordable price.
‘Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Beach Camp and Dive Centre’ has been dubbed ‘the Maldives of Bali at a quarter of the price of the Maldives’ by the popular travel website ESCAPE Australia. Our unique tented accommodation, combined with the great outdoors, the gentle waters of the pristine blue sea, the tropical breezes, the magnificent underwater world and the laidback atmosphere, make it a great destination for a wonderful holiday experience.

Indonesian Movie Stars visited Menjangan Dynasty Resort
Menjangan Dynasty Resort was pleased to welcome the cast and crew of the “Jelangkung (Reborn)” movie as guests at the Resort while shooting a few scenes on Menjangan Island Beach. They included the famous Indonesian actor Lukman Sardi who has starred in many box office movies, Hannah Al Rashid, Jefri Nichol and the young actress Gabriella Quinlyn.
At Menjangan Dynasty Resort, we were trusted with the accommodation for the cast not only because of our strategic location on the gorgeous beach but also because of the luxurious accommodation and peaceful surroundings, which ensure maximum privacy, security and comfort for celebrities and other guests alike.
Jelangkung Reborn is one of the most anticipated Indonesian horror movies and is scheduled to be released at the end of June 2017. Albeit titled after the 2001 box office “Jelangkung” movie, the film will have different plot while still maintaining all of the “thrills” of the previous one.
Unwind at Pasir Putih Beach Club
Pasir Putih Beach Club, being the one and only beach club in the area, is a perfect white sandy beach for unwinding and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of Northwest Bali. Open daily from 6.30am until late, the Beach Club welcomes walk-in visitors as well as the in-house guests of Menjangan Dynasty Resort.
Offering all-day dining, the restaurant and its open kitchen features a tempting à la carte menu of Western and Asian cuisine, beach club snacks, daily specials using local produce, as well as a comprehensive list of quenching cocktails and drinks.
Savour tasty treats under shady retreats in the form of cosy bamboo cabanas and sun splashed beanbags on the beach, or on the comfortable bamboo chairs while taking in the fantastic view across the horizon. Guests can also enjoy swimming in the calm turquoise sea, in the beachside swimming pool or in the upstairs infinity pool completed with a spellbinding vista of the surrounding area.
A Day Pass Package of IDR 250K per person is available for visitors to Pasir Putih Beach Club, which includes IDR 200K food & beverage credit, free transfer from the Pemuteran area, access to the beach plunge pool and use of sun bed and towel.

On 14th May, Menjangan Dynasty Resort joined forces with Clean Menjangan Island (CMI) Organisation to clean the Menjangan Island surroundings of any trash that had littered the area. This environmental initiative will be the Resort’s regular monthly activity, in the hope that it will help to keep the area clean and green while also educating the staff and the community about proper waste management.
Commenting on the activity, Dede (Resort Manager) said, “It is very important that everyone gets involved in this activity so as to ensure the cleanliness of the area. Menjangan Island has been dubbed as one of the best diving destinations and we should do our part to keep it as it is”.
Clean Menjangan Island is a non profit organisation, established in October 2015, with a total of 12 members from hotels, resorts and dive operators in the area. A regular clean up involving all members is scheduled once a month on top of the current three times a week clean-up by an appointed team.
Where to go
For those seeking an alternative destination away from the crowds in Bali, consider visiting Menjangan Island and its surrounding area. Located on the northwest side of Bali, this tiny uninhabited island is the perfect definition of a tropical paradise with its white sands, amazing underwater world and an abundant marine life. Known to be one of the best diving destinations in Bali, it boasts the best wall diving spots with depths varying from 20 to 60 metres, a ship wreck from the World War II, and more.
Although more popular amongst divers, the area has begun to gain attention from the regular tourists thanks to its relaxing atmosphere and beautiful beach scenery against a backdrop of dense tropical rainforest and mangroves. If you are lucky, you can spot wild deer in their natural habitat or you may see them crossing the small strait between the island and mainland Bali.
The best time to visit Menjangan Island is from April to November. To fully enjoy the area it is advised that you spend at least a couple of nights here. Stay at Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Beach Camp and Dive Centre, which is located on Bali’s mainland. From the Resort, it is only a 30-minute boat-ride to reach the island.

“We had a two bedroom ‘tent’ with infinity pool overlooking the water to the islands. The view was beautiful. The Resort is peaceful, staff are friendly and provided fantastic service. Our friend's dietary requirements (no dairy, gluten free) were met when we had our custom menu designed for dinner on the beach. The snorkelling was an incredible experience, from the helpful guides to the variety of fish in the warm water. The choices for breakfast were very good. We also had a well deserved, beautiful massage after a day of snorkelling. We didn't want to leave the resort and will return. I am fussy when it comes to accommodation and I highly recommend this experience. Vanessa (Australia)”.
“Luxury with a camping experience concept. Beautiful surroundings and top-service-minded staff to make your dreams come true. Very good food in the restaurant and fully equipped tent. This place is really peaceful and a great pleasure to visit. Heinojuhl (Denmark)”.
“Amazing experience. Great place to get away and relax from the hectic city. The chef, Gusti, was amazing. He planned a private dinner out on the beach and customised a menu based on a conversation about our likes and dislikes. The staff were super and very nice, making this experience amazing. We had 2 servers/bartenders, Kama and Uri had to be the nicest people and enhanced our experience so much we can’t wait to be back. Steve (Australia).”
“We were here for a romantic dinner. Food was delicious and service was good. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Menjangan. We looked at the villas and loved it! Kadek (Indonesia).”
