5 Bedrooms | Clifftop Luxury | Uluwatu, Bali from $2,500 per night
Decadence is at an all time high at The Istana estate, a private luxury 5-bedroom villa situated on a cliff overlooking white sand beaches, world-class surf breaks and the Indian Ocean on the southwest tip of the Bukit Peninsula. The design and decor here is sleek and modern with traditional Indonesian accents and natural building materials, and you’ll find all the modern gadgetry you need to stay connected and entertained for hours on end. Perfect for discerning families, groups and all types of events, The Istana will impress even the hardest to please.
The Istana is spread out over a vast gated property and the main buildings are set back just 30 metres from the cliff’s western facing edge, which means you have incredible vistas of the ocean as well as Bali’s legendary sunsets come evening. Solid teakwood floors, columns and wood panelling can be found throughout the villa, and sliding glass doors and windows have been strategically placed to allow for spectacular views and free-flowing breezes.
Each of the rooms here is kitted out in soft furnishings, sensuous silks, and state-of-the-art technology, so comfort and convenience is a given. In addition, a staff of over 20 hospitality professionals will pamper you with gourmet meals, soothing spa treatments, and tours around the island, and they will make sure that the villa is kept spotlessly clean. Even the little ones are treated like royalty here with a games room filled with toys, books, DVDs, video games and a pool table.
Indoor Living The main villa building at The Istana is shaped like an H, with a gorgeous living room in the centre. The living room has soft couches looking out over the ocean, wooden panels on the walls with Sanskrit writing of Vedic love stories, and a long service bar perfect for pre-dinner cocktails. On one side of the living room you will find the dining room with its solid teakwood table for 12 and sliding glass doors that overlook tranquil lily ponds. On the other side of the living room is the AV room that features a home theatre entertainment system, huge sofas laden in silk covered cushions and glass doors in the front and back.
Guest Suites At either end of the H-shaped main building are the bedroom wings with four spacious and stylish bedrooms: two garden suites with their own private gardens, and two ocean suites with views out to the Indian Ocean. Each luxuriously appointed suite includes high ceilings, A/C, double beds, state-of-the-art TVs and sound systems and gorgeous indoor/outdoor bathrooms.
Master Suite The master bedroom at The Istana is housed in a separate building with its own entrance and car park for the utmost privacy. It includes a covered deck and private plunge pool lined with black volcanic stones, an inviting living area, sliding glass doors that look out to the ocean, and an ensuite bathroom with a sunken bathtub and outdoor rain shower.
Children's Wing In the northeast corner of the estate there is another building with staff facilities on the ground floor and an entire top floor devoted to kids of all ages. This is where you will find the games room with its pool table, video game corner with Wii and PS3 consoles, BOSE sound system and comfy sofas. This floor also has a bedroom kitted out with bunk beds that can sleep up to five kids, plus a bedroom for a nanny.
Outdoor Living Of course in such a scenic setting, you will probably want to spend most of your time outdoors amid the gentle sea breezes, and just as much attention to detail is paid to the outdoor environs as the interiors at The Istana. Fronting the villa is a 33-metre swimming pool with an infinity edge on the ocean facing side. Surrounding the pool are cushioned sun loungers, umbrellas and a rolling green lawn. Cross the lawn to the cliffside bale and settle into the lounge where you can watch the surf roll in onto Suluban Beach. The bale also has a sunken table for 12, a black granite bar with a service station, and a gas BBQ.
