This is what luxury looks like in rural southwestern Bali: Instead of setting the main villa and its two guesthouses in serene isolation across almost 3 acres of land, the design team nestled the dwellings of the Kaba Kaba estate together, to allow the green lawns to unfurl gloriously in all directions. "It goes on and on forever; it’s a completely uninterrupted view," says Lesley Campbell, of the Bali-based interior design firm HC2. "I don’t think there’s anything like it in Bali." Popo Danes, the Balinese architect who designed the recently completed property, concurs. "It’s a huge site for Bali for one private villa," he says, noting that normally 40 homes would be planned for a parcel this size. Created as a retreat for a couple and their children, Kaba Kaba leases through Elite Havens when the homeowners are not in residence.
