Villa Bulan Putih in Uluwatu, Bali
Villa Bulan Putih sits atop a cliff on the Bukit Peninsula, a mere twenty-five minutes from Ngurah Rai Airport. It overlooks the dramatic surf breaks at Bingin and Dreamland beaches, which draw in devoted surfers from around the world and play host to international surf competitions. The golden sands can be reached within a leisurely ten minute stroll. Attractions like Uluwatu temple, Kuta golf course and the award winning bars and restaurants of Seminyak are all just a drive away.
Five spacious bedrooms occupy the first and second floors of the main house. Each one boasts a king size bed kitted out in crisp, white cotton. Billowing mosquito nets hang from the ceiling adding a touch of that Oriental mystique. At night, black out curtains deliver endless hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Each room also has a day bed for massages or afternoon lounging. For those seeking a little solitude, a door at the back of four of the bedrooms leads to a small reading room, complete with comfy chair and traditional carpet. An open library on the first floor landing allows more sociable readers to compare notes on the latest bestseller.
As well as the five bedrooms in the main villa, guests can also make use of the two private Garden Suites in the garden. Each one houses a single, spacious bedroom and an outdoor bathroom for bathing au naturel, Bali style. The abundant use of dark wood and the eight metre high ceilings make these bungalows a striking addition to the main villa.
An oversized 3.5m outdoor dining table means guests can take their meals in the garden. This is a popular choice in the evening when the lights of Seminyak and Legian provide a glittering backdrop over the ocean. Fresh seafood and choice cuts of meat can be grilled to perfection on the large gas barbeque.
Finally, a TV room with home theatre system is a cosy refuge where guests can recline, relax and take in the latest Hollywood blockbusters or catch up on the news. A large daybed and en suite bathroom means this room can also serve as bedroom for additional guests.
