I found this great article over at Bali Discovery that gives you a detailed description of Ayana Resort, as well as the meaning of their name.
Previously known as The Ritz-Carlton, Bali Resort & Spa, this stunning property was rebranded AYANA Resort and Spa Bali on 1 April, 2009. It is now under the management of US-based West Paces Hotel Group, which is led by Horst Schulze, a founding member and former president director of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
Named after a ‘place of refuge’ in Sanskrit, AYANA is perched on limestone cliffs up to 30 meters above the Indian Ocean near Jimbaran Bay on Bali’s south-western peninsula. The 77-hectare property enjoys majestic views and a secluded location with a tranquil white-sand beach, yet is just 15 minutes from Bali’s airport. Catering for honeymooners, families and groups alike, the 368 guestrooms comprise 290 rooms and suites and 78 private cliff-top villas.
The resort offer guests the best of both worlds: the seclusion and space of their own Balinese-style villa or room, and access to the facilities and services of a world-class hotel. The beautiful four-story design follows the basic Balinese architectural principles that no building should be higher than coconut palms. Alang-alang thatched roofing, brightly colored Balinese doors, limestone carvings, intricately woven mats, slate and marble floors are part of the hotel's distinctive Balinese design. Antiques and artifacts from other islands in Indonesia - Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, Lombok, Maluku, Irian Jaya decorate the public and private areas.
