Our top pick for beachfront bliss, the unique location of Anapuri Villas allows discerning holidaymakers the opportunity to explore a less travelled path in Bali. Overlooking the sparkling black sands of Pabean Beach as well as uninterrupted views out to Nusa Lembongan and Mount Agung, this intimate villa estate has already established itself as an A-list destination.
Resembling a luxurious cobblestoned village with four opulently appointed castles, the boutique Anapuri Villas is more aptly described as an incredibly intimate six-star resort than your standard luxury villa compound. Having already redefined the exclusive Bali villa experience despite opening less than six months ago, the estate is a multi-faceted jet set playground that works for families and friends travelling together, or for the ultimate private event or celebration. Why not reserve all four villas, creating an unforgettable venue for life’s most cherished occasions?
Offering an impeccably landscaped garden designed for chic island weddings, every nook and cranny of the property is designed with a high-flying lifestyle in mind.
A stylish spa is appointed with all of the bells and whistles needed for hair and nails as well as a sumptuous double treatment room designed for relaxing with signature massages. Private chefs, butlers, and bartenders are on hand to realise your dream event and the exquisite selection of accommodations is unmatched. Ranging from a one bedroom honeymoon suite right up to an awe inspiring eight bedroom mansion that sleeps up to 19 people comfortably, each villa boasts its own unique facilities, dedicated staff, and infinite living and lounge areas including a private Beach Bar.
The villas opened earlier in the summer and have already been voted as the number one property on Tripadvisor in the area. Designed by Guy Morgan, each villa captures the detailed elegance of traditional Balinese interiors with an edge of twenty-first century sophistication. They are aesthetically contemporary, yet each villa is themed around one of the four vital elements of nature: water, air, earth and fire. Rooms can therefore remain pure and organic in their natural minimalist design, or, with a click of a button or a flick of a lock, a whole new world can be revealed, such as LED televisions electronically emerging from the foot of the beds, or state-of-the-art fully-stocked fridges concealed behind vintage wooden chests.
Anapuri Villas have certainly made their mark in the luxury accommodation market, already hosting some of Asia’s most discerning travellers as well as celebrities like legendary surfer Kelly Slater, who left a signed surfboard in Anapuri’s gym after his stay. Anapuri has set the bar impressively high for 2013, and we can’t wait to see what else they have in store for next year.
