Indonesia Bali Villa Vacation rentals sea front 5 bedroom with Staff on the Bukit Peninsula
From its breathtaking cliff-top position on the south-western tip of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, The Istana gazes westwards across an endless expanse of ocean – the views are simply breathtaking. Sixty metres below the villa is Suluban Beach, renowned for its epic surf breaks, and accessible via a 130-step pathway just along from the villa; Padang Padang and other equally well known beaches are a short drive away, as are two beach clubs to the east. Golfers have the choice of two golf courses on The Bukit, and for a glimpse of Bali’s unique culture and religion, look no further than Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of the island’s most spectacular sea temples, just a five-minute drive from The Istana.
A mind-blowing cliff-top setting, breathtaking ocean views, serene architecture and superb staff have propelled the Istana to prominence among the world’s most remarkable destination villas.
Located on The Bukit Peninsula in south Bali, minutes from the revered sea temple, Pura Luhur Uluwatu, The Istana is designed for lavish entertaining and is in much demand for weddings and large family gatherings. There’s extravagant living and dining space (both formal and informal), a massive independent master suite with pool, four generous guestroom suites, a dedicated children’s wing, games room, media room, spa and magnificent cliff-edge balé across the lawn from the 32-metre infinity pool.
Legends are created with far less.
The Villa’s neatly symmetrical, ‘H’-shaped main building looks out towards the 32-metre pool, the lawn and the ocean beyond the cliff edge. At the heart of this building is a living room surrounded by koi ponds, and flanked by a formal dining room to one side and a media room to the other. Beyond these rooms are two identical wings, each housing an ocean-view and a garden-view guest suite.
The very private master suite, with its own swimming pool and sun deck, lies to the north of the main building in a separate pavilion facing the ocean and cliff-edge balé. Steps lead between the master and main building to the villa’s private spa, the games room and the children’s wing. The villa’s professional kitchen, complete with its own herb garden is tucked discreetly to the rear of the villa.
Living room: Lying at the heart of The villa is the living room. This highly sociable space is open on two sides and features a black marble cocktail bar and silk-cushion-covered contemporary seating arranged in a U-shape around a huge coffee table – all oriented towards the ocean view. Walls feature panels of tropical wood carved with ancient tales of Ramayana, and prized ethnic artefacts are artfully dotted around the space.
Dining room : The villa’s formal dining room is a delightful setting for gourmet meals and dinner parties, served at a stately teakwood table for 12. The interior is handsomely decorated, with a wall of Thai silk panels, an antique hand-woven songket and an eclectic collection of oceanic curios. Looking out onto stellar ocean views, glass doors can be closed for air-conditioned comfort or thrown open for sea-breeze-cooled dining.
In this decadent home-theatre-with-a-killer-view, villa guests can lounge in comfort before the 92-inch projector screen with Bose surround-sound for a full-on immersive experience. Automatic black-out blinds veil or reveal the ocean and garden beyond at the touch of a button, and the butler is on hand to serve movie snacks.
Kids of all ages will love the games room, with its full-size pool table, library of books, board games and toys, and L-shaped sofas defining a video games section complete with PS3 and Wii supported by Bose sound system.
While the living room may be the heart of the villa, the cliff-edge balé is unquestionably its soul. Here, guests can celebrate a spectacular Bali sunset with cocktails in the comfortable sitting area before enjoying a sumptuous seafood feast at the sunken dining table set in front of a monolithic slab of granite that forms the bar and barbecue station.
