Overview

Just-opened remote cliffside retreat, with stylish sleeps and sunset viewing spots suspended above Bali’s best surf

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

Infinity pool, amazing service, near the best surfing spots of the island, great food, amazing rooms, awesome views, fair price. What else do you need from a resort in Bali?
It was our second time in Bali and we loved this hotel, that was chosen as our gran finale of an amazing trip. Can't wait to come back!

A beautiful hotel with sooo lovely people. You get warm smiles from everyone. The hotel staff fulfilled all our requests. Very good yoga lessons, beautiful spa, tasty breakfast. We had a drive immediately whenever we needed and also did some nice sightseeing tours. Perfect for a quiet hideaway.

We spent 4 nights at this resort with my parents and our 8mnth son in August. It was money well spent! From the moment we arrived we were impressed by staff, location and amenities. I would highly recommend ocean view villas. We were lucky enough to get a free upgrade from garden view villa. The staff were amazing. So friendly and welcoming in person and professional (and prompt) by email. Our every request was met without issue, in particular those relating to our son (baby seat in car, cot, high chair in restaurant). We ate at all the restaurants and were so impressed by the food quality. As we had our own pool we didnt spent much time in the hotel pool but admired its location overlooking the ocean. We used the free shuttle service to the beach and temple. The resort is not

5 stars!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 days to finish off our trip around Bali. We had an amazing time during our stay and did not want to leave! We stayed in the ocean view suite and could watch the surfers and the sunset from our balcony. This is a perfect hotel with wonderful staff who are willing to help at all hours of the day.
