There’s something particularly alluring about Bali’s southeastern coast, with its rice paddies; corn plantations; and groves laden with coconut, banana and papaya. Located in Sukawati, opposite the intriguing jet-black Full Moon Beach, this hideaway comprises low-rise villas and suites that exist in harmony with the tropical landscape and are quite the alluring destinations themselves.
The Royal Purnama is dedicated to arts and local craftsmanship, with traditional Balinese architecture and the creations of area artists adorning every space (many of these works available for purchase in the boutique and gallery). There’s an indoor-outdoor concept to the suites, too, with semi open-air bathrooms and airy open-plan living. And of course, in addition to touches like handmade furniture, five-star details abound – expect designer amenities, tons of room and all the modern additions you’d expect from an upscale TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.
In fact, there’s little need to stray far from your private poolside oasis. You’ll find sophisticated Indonesian cuisine at the breezy Standing Stones restaurant, a beach lounge serving an all-day menu by the free-form pool, plus a library where you can select music and movies to enjoy later on. Of course, no Bali break would be complete with a visit to a spa – at this stay, you can make the most of the natural, mineral-rich ingredients sourced from the coast, with a revivifying sea-salt and volcanic-sand scrub.
There are 48 accommodations at this boutique retreat. The Jepun One Bedroom Pool suite features a bedroom and living area with a separate kitchenette and dining space. The exceptionally bright and large bathroom is semi open-air, with a double vanity station, an oversized granite bathtub, a tropical shower and lush plants that bring the outdoors in. You’ll have your own daybed or loungers and a softly lit private pool.
Standing Stones is a gourmet semi al-fresco restaurant that serves Indonesian and international dishes in a modern, Western presentation. It’s possible to take cooking classes here – a very enjoyable experience, what with the murmur of the sea in the background. In addition, there’s the beach lounge, which is ideal for more casual plates and refreshments.
The tranquil spa champions the restorative properties of natural local ingredients, including the famous volcanic black sands. There are two couples suites here, a single suite and an aroma steam room.
If it’s a glimpse of rural Balinese life you’d like to see, this peaceful stretch on the isle’s southeastern coast is perfect. The volcanic black sands of Full Moon Beach are strikingly picturesque, and there’s a reef nearby, as well as great surfing conditions. The staff can help organize local experiences centered around arts, culture and nature, and you’re only around 10 miles from Ubud.
How to Get There
I have never ever experienced such a low-level quality hospitality service the way I did today. From the moment I walked in as an outside guest- very low-level questions, terrible English. Staff members didn't know how to communicate and I didn't put my energy/attention into this until they stopped me on my way to the restaurant asking from me what do I want? Our conversation ended after a lie from a staff member and miscommunication saying that they don't need to treat outside guests good!? Wow! Really? Did you just say that? I believe it was because of the lack of English, as a guest I felt very unpleasant and had to leave the resort! You really want to make sure who represents your resort in the lobby! Apart from that, I had an amazing experience a couple of days ago in the same resort, so I was aware of the rules which are applied to outside guests.
We were there the last 4 days of our honeymoon & we wished we've been there the whole vacation. We can't wait to get back !! Everything is so clean & so beautifull. & the food wauw!! Most important the service is the best service i ever had in my life . Like i said its truly amazing
I have just left possibly one of the most amazing hotels ever... we were priveleged to be able to stay 5 nights during a 10 visit to Bali, everything from reception to room maids to spa treatment was so warm and indulgent. We also had the privilege of getting to know the staff and their stories. Be prepared to enjoy an faultless stay!
Hopefully we can return soon to hear that Hadi our amazing guest relation will have had a promotion his care to attention and detail were superb ❤️❤️❤️
I stayed at the Royal Purnama for 4 nights during January and all I can say is that it is the most amazing resort hotel!
I stayed in a beautiful 4 person villa that was impeccably cleaned every day.
The food was great and cheap! I loved the free high quality breakfast everyday!
The live music was amazing.
The lounging areas are beautiful - just look at the photos!
The best part was the service people who were perfectly mannered and was always checking up on us! My friends and I felt like a king.
If you're staying in Bali, do yourself a favour and stay here because you won't regret it!
Me and my wife went to Bali on out Honeymoon in October and this was our first stop, it was absolutely amazing. I have recommended it to everyone I know and I will be back at some point in the future.
The hospitality, the food, the view - everything was beyond expectation.
Everyone is incredibly helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make the stay as perfect as possible.
