Villa Istana

Villa Istana

Bali, Uluwatu ~ 5 Bedrooms ~ 5 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 9 to 12

The west facing Istana resides on a southwestern tip of Bali, Indonesia, in an area named The Bukit. This five suite estate overlooks white sand beaches and a lagoon abundant with sea life and coral, and at night, magical sunsets.

The Istana is a gated property comprised of two swimming pools, a relaxation bale, the main house, the self-contained, single-storey master suite, and a children’s wing located above the staff service area. A dedicated team of over 20 professional staff makes this magnificent luxury villa your home in the Island of the Gods.


The master bedroom is located within the guesthouse, which is separate from and slightly more elevated than the main building, and set back so as to offer complete privacy. It has its own entrance way, parking facilities, and private swimming pool. The L-shape pool is two and a half meters deep and is faced with a black volcanic stone. It has its own outdoor shower and lounge chairs.

The master bedroom/guesthouse which is built largely from wood, and enhanced with a tropical modern twist is divided into a covered deck, living area, and a bedroom with an expansive ensuite bathroom. The master-suite looks out over the property, and is enclosed on either side by sliding louvered glass doors. A spectacular view of the ocean is provided from the large bed which is the center piece of the room.

The expansive ensuite bathroom is fashioned in cream terrazzo and fitted with a sunken bathtub. There is also a walk-in shower and a toilet hidden behind frosted glass. Twin marble washbasins rest on a long vanity unit complete with large wall mirrors. Wardrobes with mirrored doors present plenty of hanging and storage space. Glass doors open to an outside walled area complete with an outdoor rainshower and a cushioned daybed.

Comfortable chairs on the Master Suite’s deck afford one a view of looking directly out from over the private pool to the bale and the horizon behind.

The two garden suites (on the east side of the main building) feature private gardens along with their other amenities.

Both suite entries are decorated with carved limestone blocks representing traditional Ikat weavings from the islands of Flores and Sumba.

Each of the matching suites is comprised of a bedroom and indoor and outdoor Bali-style ensuite bathrooms. All of the bedroom walls are done in white leading up to the high cathedral timber-lined ceilings with ceiling fans, and air-conditioning.

The garden suites are equipped with flat screen TVs with surround sound and DVD players and small stereos and each garden suite is complemented by a private walled sun-lounging area with a raised wooden deck and daybeds for relaxing.

Ocean Suites

Each of the two matching Ocean Suites (the bedrooms in the main building on the west side) is comprised of a bedroom with a capacious walk-in closet, and indoor and outdoor Bali-style bathrooms.

A dramatic backdrop wall acts as magnificent head board. The walls are dressed in white, with natural colored soft furnishings complimenting the high cathedral timber-lined ceilings with ceiling fans, and air-conditioning.

Both suites also boast extensive ensuite bathrooms with twin basin vanities, bathtubs, and indoor and outdoor showers. The ocean suites each open up onto the front lawn and feature dramatic ocean backdrops.



Children’s Wing



One wing, located on an upper floor at the back of the property, is devoted entirely to children. It features a lounge/living space complete with sofas, a pool table, Playstation, TV/DVD and Bose sound system. A bedroom with fitted bunks provides sleeping space for five kids, and there is also a nanny’s room.
