Located not far from Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, The Serai Club is within walking distance of Jimbaran Bay and its magical sunsets, and even more magical moonrises.

Connected to the rest of Bali by an isthmus (a narrow strip of land, bordered on two sides by water and connecting to larger land masses), Bukit Badung is located at Bali's southernmost tip. Upon the isthmus lies the geographically unique village of Jimbaran which borders two separate coasts. To the west lies the broad expanse of Jimbaran Bay and the Indian Ocean while to the east lies a tidal mudflat enclosing the Benoa Harbour. For residents living along the western coast, fisthing is the principal livelihood while those along the eastern coast rely on salt making and lime production for their income.

A main focal point of Bali's tourism boom, Jimbaran Bay is a tropical holiday dream come true. For souvenir hunters, Jimbaran's market located on the northeast corner of the main crossroads in the village offers a considerable variety of local products including locally weaved baskets and mats. For travellers keen to learn more about traditional Balinese religion and culture, Jimbaran has a number of cultural sites: the renowned Pura Luhur Uluwatu monument, the famous Pura Ulun Siwi temple and the three village temples of Pura Dalem, Pura Puseh and Pura Desa. For nature lovers, these are the limestone cliffs overlooking Jimbaran Bay and the Bukit Badung Plateau which offers breathtaking panoramas extending from spectacular beaches to green rice paddies to dormant volcanoes. And finally for holiday makers interested in sun, sand and surf, Bali's best surfing grounds can be found in Jimbaran at Suluban, Labuhan Sait and Bingin.
