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.
How to Get There
The full beauty of the Balinese Spirit is permeated throughout every happy staff member, gorgeous room, stone and flower in this heavenly paradise.
Go there to refresh your soul and if your ready to emotionally let go, see Ibu Jero, she’s the real deal. Thank you to every staff member for making Christie’s Birthday special by showering us with so much warmth and happiness. We will always remember how you made us feel like family.

The best hotel we ever been with the great everything from start to finish our stay. All the staffs trying hardest to accommodate all the guest needs, We felt so spoil and overwhelming with the services
After reading some other reviews we were a bit worried about coming here. After getting here our worries were all put to rest. The rooms are excellent even though the hotel is older. They are massive, the beds are comfortable and the view from our balcony is picturesque. The spa is under renovation but we still had an excellent massage in the temporary set up they have in the suites. The 360 restaurant food is a delicious modern take on Indonesian food. Our waiter almost every night was a trainee and his service was great. Actually all the staff were great and friendly, and remembered who we were and what we ate and drank.
The Infinity pool was always clean and the view from there was amazing.
The walk to the main street is only 10 minutes and then another 10 minutes to Padang Padang beach. The hotel offers a twice daily return shuttle to the beach and one to the Uluwatu Temple.
The hotel includes daily free activities like yoga and painting.
All in all was a great experience for us.
Location: on cliff with direct view to the beach, the left to access the beach is broken. So the only way to go to the beach is by stairs outside the resorts ( the most horrible stairs)
Facilities: pool, mini theatre, SPA, photographer, 3 Resturants
Food: we tried 360 for breakfast very nice and a lot of variety (I highly recommend the French toast)
Sea fire Salt: the closest to the beach, food is international
The Japanese (SONO): very nice food, we tried the chicken dumpling GOYZA, and bamboo lobster, SONO combo
The most delicious meals
Staff: very welcoming, Mr. Fekri very great man, with positive energy, Ayni was great too. Everyone did there best to assure we are enjoying our stay.
In general: if you have kids or adults with movement impairment I don’t recommend the resort for you, so many stairs.
