The Istana rests upon cliff top land, 100 metres above the rolling surf of the Indian Ocean on the southwestern tip of the Island of Bali. This five star suite estate overlooks white sand beaches and a lagoon abundant with sea life and coral, and in the evenings, magical sunsets. When the trade winds blow, a massive swell crashes onto the surrounding reef, crafting waves that attract worldwide surfing attention; the breaks are rated the fifth best in the world. Uluwatu beach is only a ten minute walk from the villa.
Set back 40 metres from the cliff face, The Istana is a gated property comprised of two swimming pools, a relaxation bale, the main house, the self-contained, single-storey master suite, and a children’s wing located above the staff service area. The single storey main house is a study in perfect symmetry, architecturally inspired by an Indonesian long house. It presents a living room, dining room, an audio video room and four identical bedroom suites. The overall style is a medley between understated modern architecture and traditional Indonesian detailing. The artwork represents a mixture of primitive art and antiques originating from Indonesia, keeping with the aura of tradition and style. Uluwatu temple, one of the most revered temple’s on the island, is just a five minute drive away. A dedicated team of over 20 professional staff makes this magnificent luxury villa your home in the Island of the Gods.
