Nestled 100 meters above the Indian Ocean on the Southwestern tip of Bukit, Bali, Indonesia is Villa Istana. This upscale gated property, with its cliff-top location and overlooking the white sandy beaches and a lagoon, offers the perfect place to view and marvel at the magnificent sunset. Uluwatu Beach is a 10-minute walk from the villa. Ranked fifth best in the world, the area is a surfer’s paradise defined by high and strong waves from the Pacific Ocean. On top of being a haven for surfers, the area exudes a spiritually inspiring vibe as the sacred Pura Uluwatu is only 2 km away.
The design of the property’s main building is inspired by an Indonesian Longhouse while the entire villa is a fusion of modern contemporary architecture and traditional Indonesian architecture. Indonesian primitive artworks and antiques characterize the interior of this five-bedroom villa giving it an authentic traditional aura. Surrounded by some of the island’s revered temples, this luxury villa managed to maintain its Indonesian heritage despite the touches of modern contemporary designs such as the two awe-inspiring swimming pools.
The property’s five bedroom suites can comfortably accommodate up to ten adults as each bedroom suite has double beds. Located in the guest house – separate from the main building, the master bedroom is designed for ultimate privacy. It has a private entrance and an L-shaped private swimming pool. The room’s centerpiece is the large bed strategically positioned to offer a spectacular view of the Ocean below.
In addition to a large bed, the master suite features a large en-suite bathroom complete with a sunken bathtub, a walk-in shower, and a toilet. An outside enclosed area fitted with an outdoor rain shower and a cushioned daybed is accessible from the room through glass doors.
Villa Istana is committed to provide utmost comfort to both the adults and children. The villa has a separate wing, located at the back of the villa on the upper floor, designed for and dedicated to children. This kid’s wing features a pool table, PlayStation, TV, DVD players, a Bose surround sound system and a bedroom that can accommodate up to five kids.
Adults have several dining and entertainment options – from the living room furnished with segmented daybed style sofas and ottomans to the spacious bar that provides the perfect setting to enjoy refreshing cocktails. For audio and visual entertainment, the villa features a media room overlooking the front and back sides of the villa. This room is air-conditioned and equipped with a big-sized relaxation couch, a wide-screen projector, and entertainment center. The Bale is the perfect spot to capture a glimpse of the breathtaking ocean.
