Villa -
5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Bukit, Karangasem, Bali
What makes a world-class destination villa? A stunning cliff-top setting, spectacular ocean views, extravagant living space, and a 32-metre cliff-edge pool and sunset bale help. Add five large bedroom suites (with private pool for the master), children's wing with bunk room and games room, spa, and impeccably trained staff, and you have The Istana. This iconic destination villa is set high on the Bukit with stunning views over the Indian Ocean, a few kilometres from the revered Uluwatu temple and a stroll to Sulamben beach. No wonder it's a sought-after venue for fantastic family vacations, stylish weddings and society events.

Additional amenities include: ping pong table, music library, security system, in-home theater, movie/video library, housekeeping (full time), idd (extra), generator, baby cot, bed linen, board games/toys,...

My husband and me were here for 5days to join my friend's wedding, and it is an awesome holiday. :) The place is huge, with a 30m(not sure or 35M) long infinity pool, you will be so excited and feel the luxury to swim in such a private villa !!! I didn't visit all the bedroom but everyone was happy...
