Villa Soham in Uluwatu, Bali
Glorious villa perched on the cliff-top on the edge of the Bukit peninsula in the southernmost part of Bali. Here, our guests enjoy one of the most magnificent vistas on the entire island – a view enjoyed from practically every room in five-bedroom Villa Soham.
Award-winning Singapore architect Ernesto Bedmar created the stunning contemporary buildings, using Indonesia’s abundant natural materials in soaring recycled ironwood pillars, Merbau-wood pavilion roofs, and walls of riverstone and Palimanan stone. Within the elegant interiors, brightened with an au courant palette of cool grey and white, are inspired design flourishes: signature walls of Bengkirai-wood blocks that bring sparks of light into both living pavilions; headboard panelling made of lacquered rice sacks in all the bedrooms; and over-sized resin-candle pendant lights suspended above Italian Statuario marble-topped dining tables.
The soul of these stunning cliff-top villas is the professionally trained staff team led by the highly experienced villa manager Pak Adhi – together dedicated to treating each guest as celebrity-special. At their heart is the accomplished chef, whose spectacular dishes mirror the inventiveness and elan of the setting in which they’re served.
With a chauffeured car at the ready, guests can be whisked away to the white-sand Pandawa Beach in minutes, and Bali’s best loved surf breaks, sea temples and seafood restaurants are within a half hour’s drive.
The Singapore owners chose a Sanskrit phrase for the estate name; ‘Soham’ – and its inversion ‘ham-sa’ (translating as ‘I am he’) references oneness with the universe and the presence of divinity in each soul. It’s an apt name as this beautiful setting is sure to inspire awe and contemplation on the beauty and richness of life.
