Khayangan Estate – Uluwatu

 khayangan estate6

 

Khayangan Estate is quite simply as its name suggests, a private villa estate that is stunning -heavenly- and the very best of the Bali luxury villas. Situated in Uluwatu on Bali’s Bukit peninsula adjacent to Bulgari Bali Resort. Khayangan rests upon 1.5 hectares of magnificently landscaped gardens, clifftop, 170 metres above Selonding beach. The estate offers one of the best views in Bali with a 180-degree panoramic vista of the Indian Ocean. There are few other Bali luxury villas with a comparable view.

The estate’s charm lies in its unique architecture, which features eleven antique joglos-once the traditional homes of Javanese aristocracy-now re-purposed as a private villa in Bali and set amidst a sprawling garden with terraces of yellow irises, swaying palms and fragrant frangipani trees. Reminiscent of the traditional villages of ancient Java, Khayangan is totally unique when compared to any other Bali luxury villas or Bali resorts.

The original features of these beautiful, century-old buildings have been preserved and complemented with fully reclaimed teakwood furniture, ultra luxurious contemporary furnishings and decoration, together with state-of-the-art entertainment and communication facilities, making this not only a wonderful holiday villa but also an excellent Bali wedding villa.

The Khayangan Estate rests in blissful seclusion upon 1.5 hectares of prime, cliff top land, 170 metres above the rolling surf of the Indian Ocean on the southernmost tip of the island of Bali. The Estate is located near the famous Uluwatu temple, and is immediately adjacent to the Bulgari Hotel and Resort, overlooking Selonding beach below.

Set in a magnificent tropical garden, the Estate comprises of a cluster of traditional, antique, wooden Javanese houses, known as Joglo, which have been collected by the owners of Khayangan and saved from destruction. The Joglos, with their distinctive funnel-shaped roofs, have been carefully grouped in a semi-circle, echoing the feeling of a traditional Javanese village. Each is blessed with stunning ocean views, while skilful landscaping enhances the ambience and adds to the privacy. The Estate currently provides luxury accommodation for up to six persons in three, self-contained, fully air-conditioned bedrooms, complete with en-suite bathrooms.

The focal point of the property is the splendid, hand-carved, centuries-old Joglo that serves as the main living and dining room, situated beside a 12-metre swimming pool. There is also a business centre, a magnificent cliff top spa complex, known as the Seventh Heaven Spa, a cliff top pavilion, a tennis court and a well-equipped gym. Phase two of the project will introduce three more bedrooms and another pool.

Designed by Cheong Yew Kuan, one of Asia’s leading resort and luxury villa architects, in collaboration with the owners, the architecture blends Javanese tradition with contemporary design and European influences. The buildings incorporate an abundance of recycled teak wood in the form of floorboards, doors and elaborately-carved ‘pondopo’ centrepieces. This is complemented by ironwood shingle roofs and natural stone finishes. Some of the wall panels have been replaced with ceiling to floor glass, giving the buildings a contemporary feel, and allowing more natural light to enter.

The interiors reflect the travels and passions of the owners, who invite guests to share and celebrate the rich heritage of Indonesia through an eclectic collection of Indonesian antiques, artefacts and artwork. At The Khayangan, tropical island living meets metropolitan convenience, with state-of-the-art entertainment and communication facilities, together with all the comforts and service you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel.

The Khayangan offers numerous relaxation areas, so guests will always find a private spot for peace and quiet. In fact, a large family or group of people could stay at the Estate and still lose each other within its depths. Cool sea breezes and the rhythmic sound of the waves combine to create a close to nature experience.

Khayangan Estate Accommodation
Khayangan Estate is laid out as two clusters, each featuring three, self-contained, Bali luxury villas. Each of these Bali villas presents a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The estate is available for two parties of six persons or as a single residence of six bedrooms accommodating up to 12 guests.

Cluster 1 consists of three suites: the Sultan, the Majapahit and the Keraton, together with a dining and living pavilion fronted by an infinity-edge pool overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Sitting higher and closer to the edge of the cliff, Cluster 2 features two joglos, the Maharaja suite and the two-bedroom Sanjaya suite, each with large private plunge pools. The suites are situated on both sides of a second infinity-edge swimming pool, which leads up to the covered terrace in front of a grand living and dining pavilion.

Each suite is exclusively designed and decorated to enhance its individual character. Every bedroom features a majestic king-sized bed set within thick wooden central pillars under a beautifully and intricately carved pondopo or multi-tiered ceiling centre-piece.
