Moonlight Villa towers high above a crescent-shaped valley on Bali’s south-west tip, with glimpses of Mt Batukau in the distance, views of the white-capped surf of the Indian Ocean and, across the valley, of luxury properties mingling with broad canopied acacia, fig trees, kapok and bean trees.
This glass-sided edifice really is a dream home-away-from-home set in a remarkable location. Moonlight Villa was conceived, built and furnished with love. The modern architecture, complemented by home comforts – everything from jacuzzi bathtubs to a home theatre and electronic games – promise reassuring familiarity, complete wit...h a ‘family’ of 10 caring staff who are on hand to shop for groceries and prepare delicious meals (on guest account), arrange day trips and turn down beds.
Architecture optimises the villa’s hillside position, while its glass walls and lofty height maximise the views. Moonlight Villa has four bedrooms, each complete with a glamorous ensuite bathroom; plus two living rooms, a feature kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a rooftop stargazing terrace and another terrace perfect for entertaining. This refreshingly different and very homely villa is complemented by terraced gardens full of flowers, trees hung with pots of rare orchids, ponds, water features, and a 15m swimming pool complete with a large and super-comfortable pool lounge and bar. Also located poolside is a smooth velvety lawn, an ideal setting for parties and small weddings.
Moonlight Villa is a place to lose oneself. By day the rooftop terrace is a sunny lounge and a great lookout for spotting sea eagles and kingfishers, as well as monkeys in the wooded valley below. By night, when the stars are shining and the moon is full, it is easy to understand how this magical dream home got its name.Read more
Moonlight Villa is in Uluwatu, a small village at the extreme southwestern point of The Bukit, Bali’s lemon-shaped peninsula. The area is characterised by wide open skies, dizzying cliffs, caves, timeworn sea temples, and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Uluwatu’s world class reefbreak, with its famous entry cave, was discovered in the early ‘70s by those in search of the perfect wave, and has been a Mecca for surfers ever since. The other attraction that draws visitors to this remote headland is Pura Luhur Uluwatu; an 11th century Hindu temple balanced on the very edge of the perpendicular cliffs, 70m above the Ocean. A 20-minute stroll from Moonlight Villa, down a series of steep steps, is Suluban Beach, which is the closest beach to the villa and accessible at low tide, but it’s not safe to swim here. Above the beach is a jumbled collection of cliff-edge warungs (eateries) and surfer hangouts. This is a great spot to enjoy one of Bali’s legendary sunsets, while watching the experts riding the waves at Suluban Point. Less than two kilometres away is the archetypically enchanting Padang Padang Beach, nestled in a pocket of lava-rocks. A few other luxury villas and small hotels dot the cliffs at Uluwatu but apart from some simple restaurants there is little else in the immediate area.
