Located on the southwestern tip of Bali in Uluwatu, the Istana is a private luxury estate with five bedrooms resting on a large area of west-facing clifftop with unparalleled sunset views.
The Istana overlooks white sand beaches and a lagoon teeming with sea life and coral; at night, magical sunsets come guaranteed. The house unifies modern and antique – it has an oriental approach to style, serenity and detail, with a dose of European influence and elegance. The main house has a living space, dining room, entertainment area (the Dotcom room), and four bedroom suites. A separate guesthouse comprises the master suite.
Both buildings are single-story and open-air, inspiring a natural ambiance while accentuating the breathtaking view. The suites each have a network of staff providing a luxury hotel level of service, restaurant-standard food, a full-time manager, butlers and a chauffeur – all devoted to creating an intimate service for you to enjoy in private splendour.
The villa chef offers unmatched dining experiences for all guests at the villa, boasting a dining service better than most restaurants. The menu features an array of dishes, both western and oriental. The chef’s special Balinese dishes are a must try.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Bali into a greater Indonesian holiday.
