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 Bvlgari 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 'Joglos', 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, century-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.
Khayangan Estate is located in a beautiful area known as The Bukit - a limestone plateau rising sharply from the sea, fringed by steep cliffs and some of the most idyllic beaches in Bali. Characterised by wide open spaces and clear blue skies, the turquoise waters are the playground of migrating whales. A tropical, equatorial climate means year-round balmy temperatures and, even in the rainy season, The Bukit - which is much drier than the rest of the island - is a reliable sun-trap. When the southeast trade winds blow offshore and the southern ocean swells hit the reefs, the barrelling surf breaks are among the best in the world. The only other activity is seaweed farming, still traditionally practiced by the original Balinese coastal families.
The master bedroom and guest rooms are housed within three, separate, self-contained Joglos, complete with en-suite bathrooms, wide verandahs, and lovely views of the ocean, the garden, the pool, and the social centre of the Estate. The authentic-style is elegant and enchanting. Each Joglo is air-conditioned and furnished with fitted wardrobes, seating, mirrors and lamps. Each boasts a king-size four-poster bed, built into the beams within the central funnel of the roof. Soft muslin drapes are clutched within simple tiebacks. Paintings, local textiles and ikat cushions create a personal touch. Each bedroom is equipped with a mini bar/fridge, safe, satellite TV, stereo system and telephone as well as wi-fi internet access.
Each luxurious en-suite bathroom is characterised by unique features. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, an all-embracing rainshower, a splendidly appointed bathtub, a toilet, single or twin washbasins, large mirrors, and the thoughtful provision of cushioned bench seats.
