Cool sea breezes and the rhythmic sound of the waves combine to create a close to nature experience.
Perched up in the sky on Bali’s Jimbaran cliffs, Khayangan Estate blends classic Javanese heritage with stunning ocean views. The Estate is located near the famous Uluwatu temple, and is immediately adjacent to the Bvlgari Hotel and Resort, overlooking Selonding Beach below.
Architects in Bali have long made stunning use of traditional design element fused with dramatic scenery. One of the latest luxury properties perched above the island’s famous surf beaches, Khayangan Estate is a testament to old wood and soaring glass.
Designed by renowned resort and villa architect, Cheong Yew Kuan, the property comprises a series of authentic Joglo house, specially shipped from Java. Scattered in a semi-circular design around a central living pavilion, the elements play a starring role at this property – with a focus on the sandstone cliffs and endless views of sea and distant horizon.
By replacing traditional wooden walls with floor-to-ceiling glass, uninterrupted views are enjoyed from every area of the property. Khayangan Estate’s six master bedrooms also boast spacious en-suite rooms offering total privacy. The facilities include a spa pavilion, aptly named Seventh Heaven, a full-sized tennis court, a gym, and state-of-the-art entertainment systems throughout. A personal collection of art and antiques provide a rarefied atmosphere, more like a home than a hotel.
Ian Macaulay, head of high-end villa rental provider Elite Havens, says the property has helped raise the bar for Bali’s luxury villas: “It’s setting a new benchmark in terms of what is possible on the island.”
