Pandawa Cliff Estate - Rose
Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
From Villa Rose's traditional Balinese gateway, a path meanders across lawns of soft Japanese grass dotted with frangipani trees, past a garden bale towards what looks like a single-storey building. But first impressions can be deceptive, as is clear the moment you step across the pond-fringed porch and enter the ornately carved double doors. The panoramic ocean vista that lies beyond the open-sided living room is sure to stop you in your tracks. Below, a second level opens from a grand dining area onto a manicured lawn unfurling towards the 17-metre swimming pool that appears to stop right at the cliff edge.
In perfect alignment with this ocean panorama (and the scene-stealing focus of every room), Villa Rose is an exercise in architectural symmetry. The two-storey pavilion is cleverly built into the landscaped gardens so that upper-floor entrance and the lower floor rooms are all at ground level, with twin staircases linking the two. This paean to contemporary design offers grand-yet-minimalist marble interiors that keep the ocean in sight whether the sliding glass doors are retracted for sea-breeze-cooled tropical living or closed for air-conditioned comfort.
The pairing of a king-size bedroom with a twin bedroom on each floor will appeal to families. But four couples could also holiday in complete harmony and sublime comfort here – the bedrooms are all equally large, so no disagreement over who gets the master, and there is enough living space to carve out a quiet corner when wanted.
For larger gatherings, Villa Rose can be booked together with the six-bedroom The Pala and six-bedroom Villa Marie; 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, while the chef and kitchen team whip up wonderful meals from a priced menu of Indonesian and western dishes. Guests enjoy access to a state-of-the-art sports centre, with tennis court, air-conditioned squash court, gym and spa.

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.
