About Menjangan Island, Bali Barat National
Park and the Banyuwedang Hot Springs
Island - the name means "deer" - hangs just off-shore
of the mountainous point in far north-western Bali. Because
the island is in a protected position, currents and wind-generated
waves are rarely a bother, and the reefs here offer fine
diving and crystal clear waters. Menjangan Island is another
one of Bali's top dive destinations.
The island is part of Bali
Barat National Park, a protected reserve area that encompasses
much of Bali's sparsely populated western end. Several distinct
environments are to be found within the park. It also is
the home to two rare species of wildlife. The Bali Starling
(Leucopsar rothschildi), found only in Bali, is a small
white bird with black wingtips and a brilliant blue streak
around its eyes. Only a few individuals still live in the
wild here. The park's research center can be visited and
various trekking tours can be arranged. Just next to the
boundaries of the Bali Barat National Park, the small village
of Banyuwedang with its famous hot springs is located. This
is also the site of the Mimpi Resort Menjangan.
Even the standard patio rooms are equipped with the
high quality furniture similar to those in villas.
Rows of patio rooms are laid out flank the open gardens
in the front, lush in greenery and tropical flowers. An
outdoor communal hot spring pool is provided in front of
the patio rooms as an amenity for the patio guests. The
sitting space in front of each room is ideal for friendly
gatherings or private relaxation.
Bathroom is outside the bedroom, open to the sky. Another
unique feature of Mimpi resorts. A stream runs cool in the
front garden along the patio rooms.
A relaxation space provided at the entrance to each room
where friends can gather for drinks and chats.
Room is cool with marble floors, and spacious with high
ceillings and ample storage space.
