The Menjangan is a peaceful retreat located in the heart of an unspoiled national park on the stunning North West coast of Bali. The resort is relaxed, casual and quiet, with the emphasis very much on restoring calm and simplicity to stressed minds and bodies. The Bali Barat National Park boasts a high level of bio-diversity with no fewer than 175 plant species and home to more than 160 species, including eagles, owls, sunbirds, kingfishers and swifts. Many are on the endangered species list, such as the rare Rothschild’s Myna (or Bali Starling) with its dramatic white feathers and head plume. The coastal area just off-shore from the resort offers possibly the best snorkeling and diving opportunities in Bali. Magnificent coral gardens and dramatic reef walls are home to a vast range of marine life: everything from sea fans, pygmy seahorses and vivid gorgonians to hawksbill turtles, schools of snapper and reef sharks. A marine survey recorded an amazing 110 species of coral
