Easy Transfer From Banyuwangi Airport

Have you ever heard of Blimbingsari Airport? Located in Banyuwangi, East Java (and therefore also known as Banyuwangi Airport), this new airport is expected to become Bali’s second gateway in addition to Ngurah Rai Airport in the South.

Banyuwangi Airport has been serving a few domestic flights and is planning to become an international airport by 2019, serving flights from Singapore, Malaysia and Australia. This will provide easy access for travellers to visit East Java and later hop onto a ferry to explore Bali’s western and northern coast. This will also mean that you have a faster option of getting to Menjangan Dynasty Resort by combining land and sea transport.

Getting to Menjangan Dynasty Resort from Banyuwangi Airport involves a drive to Ketapang Ferry Port, from where you will take the ferry across the Bali Strait to Gilimanuk Ferry Port. Once there, a drive to the north will bring you to Menjangan Dynasty Resort. The whole journey takes around 2.5 hours. It is a faster way of getting to Menjangan Dynasty Resort than from Bali Airport, which is an approximate 4-hour land drive.

To ensure that you enjoy the journey from Banyuwangi Airport, we will provide a transfer service that will pick you up at the airport and bring you directly to Menjangan Dynasty Resort. The transfer cost is IDR 1,250,000 nett each way for a maximum of 4 people including the luggage. Ferry tickets are included in the cost.

Arrange your trip now to Menjangan Dynasty Resort. For any inquiries, please email info@mdr.pphotels.com. See you at the Resort!

Menjangan Dynasty Resort Welcomed Australia TV Star, Ben Mingay

Menjangan Dynasty Resort recently had the pleasure to host former 'Wonderland' and 'Home and Away' star, Ben Mingay, and his wife Kirby Burgess, on their honeymoon in Bali in February 2019.

The couple enjoyed a short honeymoon getaway after their intimate ceremony at Sydney’s Centennial Park on 9 February 2018. They stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the best that Northwest Bali has to offer: unique accommodation, a pristine white sandy beach, amazing nature and maximum privacy.

Resting beside the gentle waters of Banyuwedang Bay in Northwest Bali, a world away from the crowded tourist hotspots, Menjangan Dynasty Resort offers intimate and private seclusion. Here, honeymooners and lovers can enjoy a luxurious ‘glamping’ experience – the romance of sleeping under canvas combined with modern technology and home comforts – delicious cuisine, intimate dining, indulgent spa treatments, and the opportunity to interact with nature through a wide range of land and sea activities, all are set within with the natural splendour of an extraordinary patch of paradise.

Pasir Putih Beach Club Offers Grilled Lamb Kemangi

Exclusive for the April and May period, Pasir Putih Beach Club invites diners to enjoy Chef Eric’s latest creation – the Grilled Lamb Kemangi, which is made using Australian imported lamb chops breaded with ‘Kemangi’ herbs, served with garden vegetables, pumpkin puree and lamb jus.

Kemangi, also known as Indonesian basil or lemon basil, is grown primarily in the northeast of Africa and southern Asia for its fragrant lemon scent, and is used in cooking. The leaves are similar to basil leaves, but tend to be narrower with slightly serrated edges. Kemangi is a popular herb used in the cuisines of The Middle East, Indonesia, The Philippines, Laos, Malaysia, Iran and Thailand.

Grilled Lamb Kemangi is offered at IDR 170,000 nett per portion and is available for lunch and dinner. Visit Pasir Putih Beach Club now. We are open from 6.30 am until late every day.

‘Monk’s Habit’ Debuts on the Bar

Complementing Chef Eric’s Grilled Lamb Kemangi is a new cocktail promotion by Pasir Putih Bar, called ‘Monk’s Habit’.

Made by blending triple sec, vodka, hazelnut liqueur and pineapple juice in a shaker and then straining it, the Monk’s Habit is a refreshing beverage perfect for beating the heat. Priced at only IDR 110,000 nett per glass, this cocktail promotion can be enjoyed throughout April and May 2018.

Charity News: Beach Cleaning by Menjangan Dynasty Resort

On 10 March, 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 is 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 Bali’s 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.

Destination: A Visit to A Vineyard in Northwest Bali

Hatten Wines is perhaps the most popular local wine in Bali. You will probably have seen the company’s products on display at liquor stores or you may even have already tried the wine when dining out in Bali.

Being a Balinese winery, Hatten Wines uses locally grown grapes from the local farmers to produce its wide selection of wines. If you happen to be in North West Bali, it would be a great idea to pay a visit to the Hatten Wines vineyard and learn more about this wine.

The vineyard of Hatten Wines is situated along the North Coast of Bali, between the towns of Seririt and Pemuteran. Here, Hatten Wines owns and manages the vineyard, in partnership with local land owners.

The 45 hectares of vineyard in the village of Sanggalangit is open to visitors who would like to go on a vineyard tour, experience wine tasting in the middle of the vineyard, and visit the small souvenir boutique at the Welcome Centre and Observation Deck.

With evergreen vines, the vineyards of Hatten Wines propose a year-round experience of growing grapes in Bali. Showing different stages of vine growth at its Welcome Centre, the visit offers a great educational opportunity.

The facility is open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, except Sundays and Balinese holidays.

Hatten Wines Vineyard is located 30 minutes from Menjangan Dynasty Resort. Speak to our Front Desk staff, and they will arrange and assist you with a visit. There is a charge of IDR 400K per car to cover the transfer cost for a maximum of 4 people in a car.

Guests Comments

Just finished a very, very delightful stay at this hotel. It is a bit far from everything, but this is what we were looking for. The tents are very charming (go for the pool villas), nice view, really worth the trip. The cleanliness of this hotel is just exceptional and the staff very attentive to details. One special word about the cook, who loves his job. He cares for his clients and delivers what they want! You can go there, no hesitation...

PS: A few nice excursions around, enough to fill your stay. Jepetto62, Lausanne

Fabulous resort, very relaxing, unfortunately we didn't have enough time for a dive but we will next time! The Glamping tents are so well designed and comfortable. Staff were all very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this resort if you just want to relax and chill out. We will be back! Joanne, Australia
