Luxury hospitality group Four Seasons is introducing a new feature at its Four Seasons Resorts Bali at Sayan that is the first of its kind in the country: check-in by river raft.

Guests transferring from the hospitality group’s beach resort, Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, have exclusive access to the niche travel method. Interested parties can float to the nearby sister resort via the water.

Make a splash in Sayan
Voted #1 World's Top Hotel in the 2018 Travel + Leisure Readers’ Awards, Four Seasons Resort Sayan is both an iconic spiritual hideaway and an adventurous retreat, depending on the individual desires of visitors.

Rather than a 90-minute car transfer, guests can opt to arrive in a private raft that can accommodate two people at a time and learn about the UNESCO World Heritage-listed ricefield irrigation system along the way.

The two-hour rafting adventure takes place along Bali’s longest river, the Ayung. Guests can absorb picturesque views of lush jungle and rice terraces astheir luggage continues by car and precedes their arrival at Four Seasons Resort Sayan.
