The Bulgari Resort Bali is located in one of the most exclusive destinations in the world, a veritable emblem of the tropical exoticism of the Orient, combining the breathtaking beauty of unspoiled nature with a sophisticated contemporary design born from the encounter between traditional Balinese forms and high Italian style. The quality of the services along with the views of the Indian Ocean offered by its magnificent position 150 meters over the sea are the perfect introduction to the second luxury property from Bulgari Hotels & Resorts.
The Resort consists of 59 villas with ocean views, and together they represent a contemporary interpretation of a synthesis of Italian design and traditional Balinese style. Designed by the architectural studio of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, the interior walls are made of hand-cut volcanic stone and palimanan, while the window and door frames feature the sophisticated nuances of bangkiray, a Javanese mahogany. The refined fabrics that adorn the rooms are designed and woven locally in collaboration with a team of Balinese artists and designers.
The Bulgari Resort Bali stands atop a cliff like a medieval fortress town, walled and secret. Each villa has its own garden, pool and an outdoor living room of 300 square meters that looks out over the alang alang rooftops (coconut thatch) and the Indian Ocean. The floor plan makes a sharp distinction between the quiet and reserved private area and the glamorously festive social area. The construction faithfully respects local techniques, and each stone has been cut and chiseled on site by hand.
The Arts and Crafts Store is dedicated to local crafts, with a selection of gift items inspired by the island’s rich artistic heritage: beautiful ceramic furnishings, wood and stone sculptures, hand-woven fabrics and traditional Balinese jewelry. Fine antiques are also displayed and sold here – from extraordinarily expressive objects created to appease the gods to songkets, loom-woven silk brocades with gold and silver thread used to embellish theatrical or ceremonial costumes as a sign of wealth and status.
