Villa Pala Pandawa Cliff
As spectacular oceans views go, it really doesn’t get any better than the Pandawa Cliff Estate. Even the most travelled will be left breathless upon arrival. The Pala is a 6-bedroom residence with Villa Rose, an equally beautiful 4-bedroom villa and Marie, a 6-bedroom villa, situated either side. All three offer something different in terms of living expanse. And all three have uninterrupted panoramic views of the ocean.
As you might expect, each property comes with its own private pool. Cool marble flooring and air-conditioning throughout, each is tastefully decorated and carefully arranged with local furnishings and arte-facts. The entire estate is possible one of the most picturesque locations for a wedding venue. With 16 bedrooms in total, you, your family and close friends would undoubtedly experience 5-star luxurious quality during such a momentous occasion.
The Pala and Rose also have an interconnecting garden gateway, perfect for those occasions that tend to spill over from one residence to another. And of course, with such a grand garden and lawn, there’ll be more than enough space for celebrations. The actual name, Pandawa, is taken from one of the local beaches, which is a short drive to the base of the cliff. It’s relatively unknown and quiet and offers white powdered sand with clean turquoise water should you wish for a change from your own private pool.
Even before stepping into The Pala’s grand foyer you know you have arrived at a special place. The villa’s double-height entrance, beautifully carved in gold, red and sea-green-painted wood and flanked by stone frescoes depicting the fragrant frangipani, is truly magnificent.
The Pala – meaning ‘Nutmeg’ – is Pandawa Cliff Estate’s flagship villa. Commanding unrivalled views over the ocean from its dramatic cliff-top setting, this fabulous six-bedroom property is destined to become one of Bali’s most sought-after villas. Its thoughtful design makes The Pala as suitable for a grand wedding venue as it is for a special family holiday, or even as an extravagant hideaway for a romantic couple.
The splendid master suite looks majestically down over the white sands of Pandawa Beach through walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, while five generous en-suite guest rooms each provide a private sanctuary equipped with top-quality furnishings and facilities. Abundant indoor living space includes an exquisitely decorated upper-floor lounge with ocean-view balcony, a dining room with two dining tables, a spa treatment room, children’s play room and fitness room.
Outside, the villa’s potential as a second-to-none event venue becomes apparent. A wide lawn sweeps from the dining terrace towards the 20-metre infinity-edge swimming pool, to one side of which a ten-seater table is set up below a covered barbecue and bar area, and a stone amphitheatre makes the perfect setting for a traditional Balinese dance performance. The Pala’s garden links through to that of neighbouring Villa Rose, providing a spectacular cliff-top setting for events of up to 200 guests. The gardens have been purposefully designed with events in mind, providing plentiful washroom facilities and extensive deck and lawn areas.
A large team of professionally trained staff, including a villa manager, skilled chefs, chauffeurs and a veritable army of service, housekeeping and grounds staff, tend to your every need at Pandawa Cliff Estate, while the provision of a private sports centre with full-size tennis court, squash court and well-equipped gym, together with a dedicated spa staffed by trained therapists, means that guests will want for nothing at this superbly self-contained hidden paradise above the ocean on Bali’s beautiful Bukit peninsula.
The Pala’s grand entrance opens to a light-filled reception with ‘birdcage’ chandeliers and plantation fans hanging from a double-height glass roof. Flanking the reception are four virtually identical guest suites, arranged over two floors. A corridor of glass with cooling water features on either side guides you first to a foyer displaying colourful artwork, and then to a stately living room with a curved, glass-fronted, furnished balcony giving spectacular ocean views.
To left of the living room a corridor extends to the master bedroom wing – which incorporates a comfortable TV lounge – and a spiral wood staircase leads down to ground level and the sixth bedroom, dining room and superbly equipped professional kitchen. A hallway to the back of the dining room brings you to the spa treatment room, and pathways lead through the gardens to the back of the villa where a children’s playroom and games room are neatly tucked away. A covered dining area, the spectacular infinity pool, a sunken stone amphitheatre and a relaxation bale punctuate the villa’s broad lawn, while colourful bougainvillea lines the cliff edge, beyond which stretches the mesmerizing ocean panorama.
With floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides and a glass-fronted balcony looking down to the turquoise ocean and white sands of Pandawa Beach, The Pala’s master bedroom wing is reminiscent of the prow of a fine ship. A sitting area with 40-inch satellite channel TV and two comfy cream sofas leads through to the air-conditioned master bedroom itself, and its divine panorama. So as not to compete with the views perhaps, the bedroom is simply but stylishly furnished with a pair of two-seater sofas, a writing desk and a king-size bed below a brightly coloured, traditionally woven panel. Beyond the spacious walk-in dressing room is an equally spacious bathroom with double vanity, glassed in shower and freestanding tub.
Four of The Pala’s five guest suites are arranged in pairs, one above the other, on either side of the villa’s entrance with views over the gardens or the ocean. All are very private and will appeal to both families with young children and those who appreciate having some extra personal living space, thanks to the clever addition of a sliding partition wall that separates the sleeping area from a light-filled anteroom that works well as a study, sitting room or kids bedroom. The two lower suites are furnished with king beds and the two upper rooms with split-king beds giving plenty of flexibility for different guest group configurations.
All four suites feature cool marble floors, sofas or daybeds, writing desks, top of the range audio-visual equipment, bar fridges and attractive latticework panels between the beds and dressing areas. Bright ensuite bathrooms are fitted twin vanities, freestanding tubs and generous glass-fronted shower cubicles; all are finished in soothing white and cream marble. One of the lower-floor suites also boasts an outdoor shower. At the front of the villa, a striking spiral staircase leads down to final guest suite, which is immediately below the master suite and opens onto the lawn. The room is furnished with a split-king bed and sofa and accented in warm reds. Its en-suite bathroom has both indoor and outdoor showers.
