Perched high above the Indian Ocean, Bulgari Resort Bali is a sanctuary of luxury that offers exclusive pool villas, a magnificent Bulgari Villa and sprawling Mansions, topped with the perfect blend of opulence and tranquillity.
Perched atop a 150-metre-high limestone clifftop in the southwestern corner of Bali lies the illustrious Bulgari Resort Bali. Since its inauguration in September 2006, this luxurious gem has maintained its status as a crown jewel on the Island of the Gods. Being the second property in the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts portfolio worldwide, it set the standard for opulence.
The resort boasts 58 pool villas ranging from 300sqm to 550sqm, a lavish 1,300sqm Bulgari Villa and five sprawling three- to five-bedroom Mansions that were introduced in 2015. These accommodations are strategically designed in a terraced fashion, reminiscent of Bali’s iconic rice fields. This layout grants each villa a tropical garden and a breathtaking panorama punctuated by thatched roofs.
Bulgari Resort Bali owes its exquisite design to the collaborative efforts of Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel of Milan’s ACPV Architects. Their fusion of Italian contemporary architecture with Balinese principles and materials creates a visually stunning environment. This aesthetic, bolstered by indigenous elements like hand-cut volcanic and coral stone, native hardwoods and handwoven fabrics, pays homage to local craftsmanship. Balinese artefacts and original art, alongside custom-designed furniture, ceramics, textiles, tableware and accessories, further amplify the resort’s connection to the island’s rich culture.
The Bulgari Villa, a 1,300sqm masterpiece, features three bedrooms, two living rooms, a kitchen, a private cinema, a 20-metre-long swimming pool and a spa treatment room. Meanwhile, the Mansions, spanning 1,710sqm to 4,415sqm, offer a harmonious blend of indigenous materials and contemporary luxury amenities.
Every guest enjoys flexible check-in and check-out times, personalised butler service, 24-hour access to breakfast and a private yoga instructor. The resort provides complimentary activities, such as a Balinese Hindu melukat purifying ceremony and village walks. Additional experiences, from fine dining at Sangkar to Balinese dance performances and
surf lessons, can be arranged by the attentive staff.
Bulgari Resort Bali’s commitment to incorporating natural elements and culture is evident throughout the property. The Sangkar restaurant, perched on the cliff’s edge, takes inspiration from the local rooster cages and features stunning Balinese art and décor. It offers a delectable array of dishes made with organically grown and island-produced ingredients.
The Bulgari Bar, a tranquil lounge nestled between pools and the cliffside, serves as the ideal spot for afternoon tea, cocktails and wine as the sun sets. The Poolside Bar, adjacent to the infinity pool, offers refreshing drinks and made-to-order juices.
The pristine beach and minimalist bamboo-clad Beach Club, located at the bottom of the funicular, provide the perfect setting to relax by the sea. Above it, on the cliffside, La Spiaggia offers hotel guests an exclusive lunch menu featuring grilled seafood and breathtaking ocean views.
At the heart of the resort, Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin offers a fine dining experience. Overseen by Michelin-starred Chef Luca Fantin and operated by onsite Italian Chef Alessandro Mazzali, the restaurant serves a seasonal prix fixe menu, combining local organic produce with the finest imported ingredients.
The Bulgari Resort Bali also boasts an impressive spa, featuring royal Balinese-inspired rituals, facials, Ayurvedic treatments and holistic massages. The spa arrival pavilion is a meticulously hand-carved teak wood joglo house, imported from the Javanese city of Kudus. The spa menu is a symphony of rejuvenating experiences set against the pristine ocean view.
