Bulgari Villa at Bulgari Resort

  • Cynthia Rosenfeld

The Resort: The blue of the Indian Ocean appears even brighter against the volcanic stone walls of Bulgari Resort, a strikingly contemporary 59-villa property set along 492-foot-high cliffs on southern Bali’s Bukit Peninsula. An open-air spa clings to the precipice, as does a pool area where guests take in the tropical Indonesian sun. A funicular quietly glides to Bulgari’s cliff-hugging Beach Club, where guests can stop for local fish specials before taking a short walk to a secluded sandy beach below.

The Villa: Security guards at the entrance to Bulgari Villa monitor the comings and goings of yoga instructors, private chefs, masseuses, and other staff to this 14,000-square-foot refuge. The workers—who can perform their magic in the accommodation’s private yoga pavilion, kitchen, or massage suite—join dedicated butlers in serving guests of Bulgari Villa, which features three bedrooms, a Bang & Olufsen home theater, a sunken outdoor living room, and private cliff-top gardens. The gardens and second-floor balconies offer the villa’s finest bright-blue views.

The Highlight: Sipping sundowners and snacking on sushi beside Bulgari Villa’s private infinity-edge lap pool, which spills over into the estate’s second private pool.

The Price: From $6,700 per night for as many as six guests.+62. 361.847.1000, www.bulgarihotels.com
