Anantara Bali Uluwatu: A luxurious cliffside lifestyle
Published 25 February 2011
Anantara Uluwatu Resort & Spa is due to open in April 2011, and encompasses 1.7 hectares of unspoiled coastal land with a sweeping, lofty view of the Indian Ocean. Developed by PT. Tiara Inti Mulia, the luxurious five star resort comprises a collection of 74 sea-view suites, private pool villas and duplex penthouses with dimensions ranging from 84 square metres for the smallest suites up to an impressive 350 square metres for villas offering two or three bedrooms and a private 3 x 12 metre pool.
The resort was designed by Budiman Hendro Purnomo of Indonesia’s PT Duta Cermat Mandiri Architects. It seamlessly blends in with its spectacular seaside location by inviting endless sea views into living spaces, the abundant use of natural materials, a partnering of innovative design and function, and an emphasis on paying homage to the exotic surrounds. The result is a luxury beach resort that celebrates its Anantara heritage by embracing every element of its inspiring setting.
Located just 20 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport and a 40-minute journey from bustling Kuta, Anantara Uluwatu Resort & Spa harnesses the island’s pristine natural beauty and alluring mysticism through an awe-inspiring location and ingenious architecture. Situated on Impossibles Beach, aptly named after its rolling surf, wild waves, limestone cliffs and secret caves, the resort is nothing short of an escapist’s dream with no lack of adventure, or imaginative relaxation to satisfy intrepid travellers. Anantara’s signature services and elite facilities accompany guest discoveries of one of Bali’s most breathtaking secrets, ensuring unforgettable stays in every possible way. The height of Balinese coastal living takes shape with a resort unfolding, in a seemingly impossible design feat, over a dramatic cliff-side, cascading into the sea. From this private refuge, unending panoramas of sky and ocean are enhanced by indigenous romantic touches, including a secret dining cave.
A wealth of complementary design features immerse guests in a luxurious lifestyle from every angle and perspective, from the natural beauty of solid wooden materials, to floors of travertine marble, sliding tempered glass doors that open onto the balcony, charming wooden façades, louvres and wall partitioning, culminating in elegantly harmonious Balinese style. Warm tones and rich textures enhance the visual experience, while hi-tech creature comforts in all accommodation types include an iPod docking station, double Hans Grohe rainmaker showers, a living area equipped with BOSE hi-fi entertainment systems, and a signature balcony jacuzzi hot tub for two.
Guests will revel in a diversity of lifestyle choices, deciding whether to spend their time languishing on the resort’s private secluded beach, or enjoying the exploration benefits afforded by a regular shuttle service to nearby beaches, shopping centres and cultural sites. Unwinding at the resort affords the idyllic pleasure of plunging into the cliff edge, infinity swimming pool, energising at the fitness centre, and rejuvenating body, mind and soul within Anantara Spa’s five treatment suites, reflexology room, sauna and poolside spa cabana. Dining will unfold in culinary journeys characterised by world flavours and extraordinary views. Replenish at the international Rooftop Dining, Bar & Lounge or at the Mediterranean Poolside Restaurant & Bar. Discover the resort’s secret dining cave or a bespoke Dining by Design experience where a private table for two is set up in a range of dream locations and comes complete with a private chef and butler service, enabling guests to experience Anantara’s tailor-made focus and heartfelt service at its very best.
