Bulgari Resort Bali

Tropical-island exoticism combines with Italian sophistication at this chic cliff-side address.

THE LOCALE

Spread across a secluded plateau near Uluwatu on Bali’s rugged southern coast, this high-caliber property is as refined as you’d expect from a brand known for exquisite jewelry. Its cliff-side perch 150 meters above the Indian Ocean affords guests breathtaking sunrise and sunset views.

ROOMS

Designed by Italian architects, Bulgari Bali Resort blends classic Balinese style with contemporary Italian elements. Set amid a terraced landscape of lush tropical gardens, each of the 59 thatch-roofed villas features a plunge pool and a tasteful assemblage of local fabrics and materials, including hand-cut volcanic stone, ikat weavings, and Javanese mahogany furnishings. Even more exclusive are the five Mansions, set within their own private compound. Housing three to five bedrooms, these stunning abodes come with spacious outdoor areas, elegant living and dining rooms, fully equipped kitchens, and two-tiered swimming pools.

FOOD

Positioned at the cliff’s edge, the stylish yet informal Sangkar Restaurant ofers a menu of international specialties, creatively combining popular Indonesian dishes with contemporary culinary techniques — think tiger prawn curry and beef ribs braised in rendang paste. During the summer months, it also hosts a sumptuous Italian Sunday lunch dubbed La Domenica Italiana. Over at Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin, creative interpretations of classic Italian cuisine are served in a series of intimate dining pavilions. There’s also La Spiaggia, a lunch venue set above the private beach and accessible only via funicular, where grilled seafood is the order of the day.

FACILITIES

If the resort’s cabana-lined infinity pool isn’t enough to induce a Zen-like state, then the Bulgari Spa certainly will. Accompanied by a soundtrack of breaking waves, treatments here range from a Balinese four-hands massage to traditional boreh scrubs and Biologique Recherche facials. Bespoke gym experiences are also available through the on-site branch of Workshop Gymnasium.
