From a name that is synonymous with chic Italian luxury, a brand built on jewelry, that has expanded beyond striking rocks and gems of bling, into an entire offering of lifestyle products and services. The world of hospitality was a natural progression, with Bulgari Hotel in Milan as the first foray, followed by Bali, the Isle of Gods, which Bulgari considered apt as location for its first hotel outside of Italy. And so Bulgari Resort, Bali was born, an exquisite creation in a natural setting that draws no parallel, not only in Bali, but perhaps even the world.
The Bulgari Resort, Bali is a 59-villa luxury resort property located near Uluwatu on the southern tip of the Jimbaran Peninsula in Bali, Indonesia. Perched on a cliff 150 meters above the sea shore, the resort commands magnificent views of the Indian Ocean. All villas feature unobstructed views, a plunge pool and patio and lush tropical foliage.
The ultimate in luxury right on the southern tip of Bali where the Indian Ocean southern swells hit land, some of Bali’s best surf spots are mere steps away. Just down the beach is Uluwatu and Dreamland.
Designed by architects Antonio Citterio and Partners, masters of geometries, style and colour, who used traditional, hand cut volcanic stone, rich exotic woods and contrasting customised fabrics. All the furniture has been exclusively created for the resort.
The lush landscape has been crafted by renowned Balinese landscape artist Made Wijaya.
All the luxuriously-appointed private villas feature exquisite Balinese antiques, open-air pavilions, terraces, private plunge pools, and of course luxurious Bulgari amenities.
Bulgari’s luxury is not its only claim to fame, as the hotel makes a mission of partaking in the community and environment, through efforts such as the recent planting of one thousand trees in the Bukit Peninsula area which is in its vicinity.
