Once you’ve stayed at a few villas in Bali, you start to realise that so many of them seem like cookie cutter copies of each other. It’s as if they all subscribe to the ‘modern Bali’ style with just a few slight variations in layout and location. Not so with Luna2 Private Hotel, a cosmic celebration of futurism mixed with a healthy dose of retro nostalgia and some south beach styling thrown in for good measure. Named after the first spaceship to land on the moon in the 1950s, Luna2 Private Hotel marks a new era of exclusive design-savvy accommodation with all the comforts of a 5-star boutique hotel at your own private 5-bedroom beachfront villa in stylish Seminyak.
Few other places in Bali (or the world for that matter) can rival Luna2 Private Hotel for its funky design and vibrant decor. Founder and designer, Melanie Hall, wanted to break away from the de riguer ‘tropical chic’ modern Bali style seen in so many villas around the island, so she took her inspiration from other sources. Influenced by her father, who was an international architect in the 1950s and 60s, she referred to great modernist works by the likes of Neutra and Van der Rohe to create a signature style that she describes as ‘FUNked-up modernism’.
Step inside Luna2 Private Hotel and everywhere you turn you see an appealing spectrum of colours from the deep orange chairs and circular sofa to the glittering turquoise pool, the gleaming white floors and smooth grey stone panels on the walls. Adding to the aesthetics are fun patterned Bisazza mosaics, retro artworks and classic furniture pieces and accessories accented by walnut veneers, solid acrylics and vintage European wallpapers. Fittingly designed as a throw-back to a time when there was an unbridled optimism about the future, Luna2 Private Hotel also features the latest 21st century technology and innovative amenities.
Luna2 Private Hotel attracts a wide range of discerning travellers including design aficionados, fashionistas, socialites, artists, celebrities, foodies and jet-setters all seeking the spectacular service and swish digs that the villa offers. Your experience starts with a VIP meet and greet at the airport, which can include fast-track visa-on-arrival and immigration service on request. Then you are escorted to the Luna mobile and whisked off to your private villa right on the beach in Seminyak between the Oberoi and the Royal Beach Seminyak.
The staff will greet you on arrival at the villa with a complimentary glass of champagne and will usher your luggage into one of the beautiful, bright and airy bedrooms while you relax on the sofa and take in the funky design and decor. You’ll probably want to get changed into your swim gear right away and recline on the ergonomic loungers by the pool, gazing out at the rolling waves of the Indian Ocean fronting the pool deck and gardens.
Cocktails & Canapés
Come late afternoon, your dedicated villa staff will set you up with sunset canapés, and you can order signature cocktails or your favourite tipples to accompany the nibbles and views. To really get into the groove, put on some laid back tunes from the pre-loaded iPod inside and set the Bose sound system to play the beats from the bar to the beach.
For dinner, you can take a quick stroll along the sands to hit up popular hot spots like Gado Gado, Ku De Ta, Potato Head Beach Club or the W Retreat & Spa, all within a 15-minute walk from Luna2. Of course, you could also stay in and order a gastronomic feast from Luna food menu, accompanied by wine from the award-winning Luna2 wine cellar. Cap the meal with an excellent cigar from Luna2’s international collection.
If you don’t opt for a night out on the town at Seminyak’s hippest clubs, you can make your way over to Luna2’s sister property, the Luna2 Studiotel, to chill at the famed Orbit Restaurant, Pop Lounge Bar, Space Rooftop Bar or the Lunaplex Cinema.
The idyllic beachfront gardens are perfect for hosting and toasting any celebration – from anniversaries, to weddings, to ‘celebrations of life’ and hen and stag parties – guests can wine, dine and lounge in tropical privacy, in the ‘company’ of iconic Marilyn Monroe, as she gazes up from the base of the 20m lap pool. It’s no wonder Luna2 poolside parties are justly memorable.
Step into Luna2 Private Hotel and you’ll find it blissfully cool thanks to the central air-conditioning throughout. The ground floor is home to a spacious living room with plenty of plush seating and a modern dining room with a lounge bar featuring a wine cellar and a humidor.
Fabulous for families, groups or even space-loving couples, the villa features 5 bright bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, 4 of which are doubles and one of which is a twin room. Each of the bedrooms is colour coded in either green, red, yellow, orange or purple hues, and they all feature retro artworks, funky geometric patterns and colourful tiles in the bathrooms. In addition, each room has its own flat-screen TV, Bose sound system and iPod, and there are large windows that let in cool breezes and sunlight.
For all your entertainment needs, the Luna2 Private Hotel is also equipped with a study and TV room. Workaholics can catch up on communications with the in-house Mac computer and free wi-fi, bookworms can peruse the large library and sink into the soft cushions of the sofa with a good read, and kids will love the video and computer games and toys for all ages. Adjacent to the playroom and study there is also a walled courtyard with soft green grass for some good old fashioned fresh air playtime.
Sliding glass doors from the living room open to the lengthy 20-metre lap pool shaded by tropical trees, the stone pool deck with sun loungers and a grassy expanse that makes its way down to the beach and the ocean.
To say that the service at Luna2 Private Hotel is 5-star would be putting it lightly. Although you feel as if you are in your own private home here, there is a team of 24 on hand around the clock to attend to your every need. Included in your stay is free airport pick-up and drop-off, the use of 2 Lunamobiles with drivers whenever you fancy them, complimentary event planning and babysitting, temporary membership to Luna2 Studiotel and the Canggu Club, 24-hour security guards, a pillow menu, and even early check-in or late check-out with prior arrangements. You can also order in-house spa services, health and fitness programs and customised meals with wine pairing.
Should you want to get out and experience all that Bali has to offer, your concierge can arrange sightseeing trips, shopping sprees, tours to cultural points of interest, excursions to the zoos and animal parks, golf games, surfing lessons, scuba-diving, snorkelling and boat trips, picnics and more. Entertainment for the kids including cookery classes, supervised boogie boarding, surfing lessons, horse-riding, and soccer games. Whether you’re young or old, you’ll soon see why so many ‘Lunatics’ call Luna2 Private Hotel their favourite home away from home.
