Pandawa Cliff Estate - Marie
Apartment | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
From the sound of fountains rippling the waters of the ponds to the scent of Frangipani blossom to the sight of the ocean sparking beyond the boundary wall, Villa Marie delivers a delightful sensory overload within moments of arrival. The 17-metre T-shaped pool stretching towards the ocean takes pride of place, encircled by living, dining and master suite pavilions that create separate private spaces referencing traditional Balinese compound-style homes. From the two-storey balconied building behind the living pavilion, four guest bedrooms share the stunning ocean views.
Thoughtful design details show that the villa has been designed with families in mind. The pairing of a king-size bedroom with a twin bedroom on each floor, for example; the two master bedroom pavilions that will keep two sets of parents happy; the centre-of-the-action living pavilion that opens directly onto the pool deck; the dining pavilion with barbecue that gives an alfresco ocean-view dining option. But six couples could also holiday in complete harmony (and sublime comfort) here – enjoying convivial space for socialising as well as quiet corners to get away from the crowd.
For larger gatherings, Villa Marie can be booked together with the four-bedroom Villa Rose and six-bedroom The Pala that make up the prestigious Pandawa Cliff Estate; collectively they offer a total of 16 bedrooms accommodating 32 adults (with room for up to 10 children on extra beds). The villas share the 40-strong staff who provide courteous service; nothing is too much trouble for them, and the chef and kitchen team take great pleasure in whipping up wonderful meals from a priced menu of Indonesian and western dishes. Guests of the three villas enjoy access to the estate's private sports centre, with full size tennis court, air-conditioned squash court, gym and spa. (Ocean sports such as kayaking, surfing and snorkeling are on offer at the base of the cliff, on the beach after which Pandawa Cliff Estate takes its name).

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
Bali is Indonesia's most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life's more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours' flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia's capital.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
The Bukit (which means 'hill' in Indonesian) is a 140-square-kilometre rugged limestone peninsula that dangles like a pendant upon a chain at the southern tip of Bali. Until recently, this windswept outcrop - revered by the Balinese who have built a series of temples around its perimeter, including the spectacular Pura Luhur Uluwatu - was home solely to seaweed farmers, fisherman and die-hard surfers. In recent years, however, it has reinvented itself to become the most upmarket destination on the island.
The Bukit now boasts some of Bali's most opulent destination villas, glamorous private estates, internationally-branded boutique hotels, and 'One of Asia's 5 Best Golf Courses' according to Fortune Magazine, making it the area of choice for discerning travellers and residents. Most development has taken place along the isthmus connecting The Bukit to the rest of Bali, with the beautiful sunsets and sandy beaches of Jimbaran to the west and Benoa Harbour to the east. Further along the coast to the east, are a string of resorts and hotels set along the pretty swimming beaches of Nusa Dua.
Despite recent development, The Bukit remains sparsely populated and has retained a desolate beauty. Its turquoise waters are the playground of migrating whales, and when the waves are calm and the tide is full, turtles and dugongs can be seen swimming close to the shore. The rocky landscape is dotted with wild flowers, manioc, prickly pear cactus, scarlet flowering flamboyants and fascinating kapok trees. The Bukit is also home to some of the most idyllic beaches in Bali; hidden sandy coves – a dream for both surfers and non-surfers alike (although not always safe for swimming). Even in the rainy season The Bukit is a reliable sun-trap.
