Its cliffs plunge dramatically into the Indian Ocean, blessed both by sunrise and spectacular sunset views.
The resort epitomizes elegance, intimacy and pleasure as well as a truthfully glamorous experience. Refined contemporary design meets traditional Balinese architecture with a distinctive mood of Italian innovation and tradition, following in the footsteps of the Bulgari Hotel Milano. The resort also features two restaurants among others including a modern Indonesian cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a sophisticated casual atmosphere. For a more formal ambiance, Il Ristorante offers traditional and modern creative Italian cuisine.

An antique ‘Joglo’ house, transported piece by piece from central Java, creates a unique reception area.

Bali was recently selected as one of the best islands in the world by US-based Travel+Leisure Magazine ranking just behind Galapagos Islands of Ecuador and ahead of other prominent island destinations such as Maldives, islands in Hawaii and Malta. However, before you reach for your credit card to book your tickets and rooms, keep an eye on the news, as there has been a recent occurrence that has dented tourism in Indonesia, a country that had not seen a major incident since 2009.
