A steep driveway, reminiscent of a winding street in a Mediterranean hillside village, brings you to the entrance of this exceptional villa. From here an elevator ascends three floors carrying you to a large open lobby where you are confronted by Bali in her full, majestic, awesome glory. Welcome to The Longhouse! With its spectacular vantage point on a hill above Jimbaran, this unusually long, three-storey house just soaks up the view. From every room – and from the 60sqm infinity pool, which appears to overflow into the extraordinary scene – Bali’s southern plains are laid out before you like a map upon a dashboard. The narrow isthmus that links the Bukit Peninsula with the rest of the island is clearly visible, with ocean on both sides, extending north past the crescent-shaped Jimbaran Bay along the sunset coast before reaching inland. On a clear day you can see Bali’s chain of volcanoes, from the mighty Mt Agung to the serene Mt Batukaru, stretching towards the distant mountains of East Java. Both sunrise and sunset can be enjoyed from here, and watching distant planes take off and land on the airport runway, which juts out to sea a few kilometres away, can be a unique and mesmerising pastime. Each bedroom at The Longhouse showcases a lovingly compiled collection of arts, crafts and motifs from the Indonesian islands of Java, Lombok, Sumatra, Sumba and Bali. Combine all of this with gym facilities, a spa room, a home theatre with a Karaoke machine, and the unobtrusive service of a team of gentle, efficient staff - including a chef who will personally select the freshest seafood from the excellent local fish market to provide you with a Jimbaran-Bay-style feast (food is on guest account) - and you’ll find yourself at the pinnacle of sophisticated elegance and world-class comfort. Ideal for groups of friends or family groups of all ages (the villa will sleep up to 14) The Longhouse, and its captivating setting, is sure to have you promising you’ll soon be back.
