This Italian-Balinese love affair on the southernmost point of the island has 59 free-standing, bamboo-and-coconut-thatch-roofed villas that are the embodiment of international luxury. Each is constructed of hand-chiseled volcanic stone and rare bangkiray hardwood with a private plunge pool, dining area, locally-woven fabrics and dramatic black basalt bathroom. But it’s really all about the view: end-of-the-world sunrises and sunsets over the Indian Ocean, whether guests find themselves in bed, the two-person infinity pools at the spa, or dining in either award-winning restaurant, split, naturally, between Italian and Indonesian cuisine.
In the Area
Where the Balinese royal family once hunted wild boar, surfers now hunt the perfect break: advanced spots include Padang-Padang, Suluban, Bingin and the Impossibles, all explorable by motorbike. No surprise, sun-seekers have followed, proclaiming the still-uncrowded Balangan one of Bali’s best beaches. Top-side, the precariously perched Uluwatu Temple offers not-to-be-missed sunset views and traditional Kecak fire dance performances 70 meters above the roaring waves. Just protect your belongings from particularly bold monkeys. Nearby Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park trumps what will eventually be the world’s largest statue: a 150-meter tall Lord Wisnu riding his Garuda bird.
