The first glance you take of Luna 2 Private Hotel, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this a mid-century Neutra-esque mod house plucked in from Palm Springs and planted in Bali. It looks nothing like virtually all other Villa-type accommodation in Bali.
And with its ocean-front location, the modern structure feels more like a Hollywood Celebrity’s weekend retreat in Malibu than an idyllic private villa on the Isle of Gods, Bali. The 4-bedroom Villa is rented in its entirety, and is quickly gaining traction as a Party House among the well-heeled glam crowd.
And therein lies its appeal. The California-feel is deliberate as it was designed by American architect David Wahl, and interiors were done by designer Melanie Hall, and most of the decor elements come from the owner’s private collection.
