Just-opened remote cliffside retreat, with stylish sleeps and sunset viewing spots suspended above Bali’s best surf
Cascading down a limestone cliff above the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, this breezy, contemporary retreat offers 74 suites and villas, with ocean views and terrace plunge pools. Open in early 2013 (with various facilities and villas still receiving their final touches), the resort has a “hanging garden” design that immerses its four-story reception area in pendulous tree roots and grass-planted rooftops. Tiered steps throughout the property connect an oceanfront swimming pool to the spacious suites and villas. Done with swaths of travertine and Balinese hardwoods, the contemporary interiors offer expansive views.
Bed and Bath
Starting at a generous 904 square feet, Ocean View Suites have a sleek and stylish design, with hand-cut marble and granite floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, carved Indonesian hardwoods and rectangular modern furnishings set with traditional batik accessories and colorful artwork. Just as swanky are the ocean views available from each airy retreat's private terrace plunge pool. Spacious bathrooms come with a rain shower and Anantara bath products, including anti-aging creams and serums.
Sky and sea — that’s what you’ll see at nearly every turn throughout the cliffside resort and by the dual-level infinity pool. Equally striking are the views from the rooftop Splash bar, where evenings are spent sipping sundowners on a rocky promontory. The main restaurant, 360, is a long, wood-trimmed loft space at the highest point of the resort; it serves international and Asian specialties, including an assortment of tasty Indonesian dishes and a teppanyaki bar. What’s more, a four-piece cover band croons accompaniment most nights. Before the end of 2013 a swanky new spa will open its doors to offer such signature Anantara experiences as the Balinese coffee and chocolate body scrub, in intimate cliffside treatment rooms.
