Villa Rose 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.
The clean lines and perfect symmetry of Villa Rose are very appealing. In the soft morning light, the swimming pool, ocean and sky blend to the horizon and the sense of space and light is breathtaking. Four-bedroomed Villa Rose is not only thoughtfully designed as an ideal family villa, but when coupled with its sister cliff-top villa, The Pala, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a wedding or other special celebration.
With a contemporary twist on traditional tropical design, the villa offers a choice of open-air living or air-conditioned cool, but whichever you choose, you will be treated to spectacular ocean views. Rooms are bright, high ceilinged and grand in their scale and are finished in marble, teak and glass, while furnishings are carefully chosen and positioned to create elegant and soothing spaces. The villa’s four almost identical bedrooms are arranged in pairs over two floors, with a king-bedded and a twin-bedded room on each floor, making an ideal set up for families. As well as the impressive living and dining rooms and a cosy TV area, guests at Villa Rose share a sports centre (with squash and tennis courts), spa and gym with Villa Marie and The Pala.
A friendly yet discreet team of butlers, housekeepers, gardeners, security and kitchen staff all work diligently under the experienced villa manager to take care of every guest requirement and two cars with drivers are on hand for those who wish to explore beyond the villa. The crystal clear, reef-protected waters and white sands of Pandawa Beach lie immediately below the estate and can be reached via a new road that cuts down through the cliff, while many of Bali’s best surf beaches are also close by. Only slightly further afield is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, the New Kuta Golf Club, some cool beach bars and the many fine-dining and seafood restaurants of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.
Villa Rose is laid out over two storeys with nearly every room boasting broad ocean views. The villa is entered on the upper floor via a double door embellished with a red and gold hand-carved lintel. On either side of the entrance foyer is a bedroom and a flight of stairs leading down to ground level. Straight ahead, through a wide doorway is the semi-open-air lounge. The ground floor layout reflects the floor above, with two further bedrooms at the back and a bright glass-enclosed dining room and sitting area at the front. Between the bedrooms is a TV lounge, behind which is the villa’s kitchen.
The superb ocean panorama steals all the attention as you enter Villa Rose’s upper-floor lounge, but once you can tear your eyes away from the view, this marble-floored, lofty-ceilinged space is equally enthralling. In keeping with its tropical setting, the room is completely open-sided – the sense of space further enhanced by the glass balcony that runs around the entire room. Two sets of rattan sofas are upholstered in shades that perfectly complement the villa’s coastal setting – bright ocean-blue cushions punctuating a pale sandy calm. Fossilised tree trunks make statement side tables and chunky teak coffee tables anchor the six comfortable sofas. An ornate gold and red carved panel is set into the apex of the ceiling and four antique wood columns stand sentinel.
Downstairs, pride of place goes to the 14-seater dining table, whose glass top rests on a network of polished roots surrounding a massive tree-trunk base. The table lies to one side of this big bright room that opens up almost completely to the garden – sliding glass doors disappearing into the walls – while on the opposite side of the room four rattan sofas provide another relaxed seating area. Behind the dining room is a cosy TV lounge and bar area where a massive semi-circular couch faces a 50-inch TV with Satellite channels, DVD and Blu-ray player, and behind this is the villa’s large professional kitchen fitted out in stainless steel.
A broad timber sun deck lies beyond the dining room, bordering a wide lawn and walled gardens that finish at the splendid 17-metre infinity pool perched virtually on the cliff edge. Another large decked area flanks the pool, and neatly built to one side of the garden are two guest washrooms and a pool shower. When The Pala and Villa Rose are rented jointly, or for large weddings and special celebrations, their gardens can be opened up to create an idyllic cliff-top event space.
an elite haven
Villa Rose’s four ensuite bedrooms are almost identical in design. On each floor – separated by the entrance foyer on the upper level and the TV lounge below – is a king-bedded master room and a twin-bedded room, which makes the villa ideally configured for families.
Two upstairs rooms have daybeds set into an alcove at the room’s entrance and all have walls of sliding glass doors onto either balconies or terraces overlooking the pool, the gardens and the ocean. All are air-conditioned and have high ceilings and warm teakwood floors bordered with creamy marble. Rooms are simply furnished, but each is distinguished with bright, traditional ikat fabric of green, blue and turquoise. Elegantly curved sofas face the ocean views from the base of the beds in the master rooms and the charming twin beds feature hand-carved, painted headboards.
The four bathrooms are also identical, apart from the addition of outside showers in the two downstairs rooms. Teak woodwork, marble floors and vanities, freestanding bath tubs, well-lit fitted dressing areas and glass enclosed showers with wide showerheads set into the ceiling make for a bright and invigorating start to any day.
