Bulgari Resort, Bali

The Bulgari is perched like a stone fortress on a windswept precipice more than 500 feet above the Indian Ocean. To access the nearly mile-long beach at the foot of the cliff, you descend in a glass funicular while taking in views of the jagged coastline and of giant waves crashing onto the coral reef below. The resort fuses Balinese forms with Bulgari’s sleek Italian style in the property’s 60 stone villas, which feature clean modern lines that temper local flourishes. Accommodations Of the 59 villas clustered atop the cliff, three have two bedrooms, and all have ocean views. The nearly 14,000-square-foot Bulgari Villa stands apart from the other units and includes a lap pool, a meditation pavilion, and a home theater. Recreation Retreat to the property’s spa for a four-hand Unforgettable Double Bulgari Royal Lulur couple’s massage. Dining The cliff-top Sangkar Indonesian restaurant offers authentic Balinese dishes and international specialties. Worthy Diversion Explore Bali’s many temples and other cultural sites aboard one of the resort’s vintage Harley-Davidsons. Rates One-bedroom ocean-view villas from $1,200; one-bedroom cliff-front villas from $1,450; and two-bedroom villas from $1,850. The Bulgari Villa is $6,500.
