The 22km drive to The Istana from Bali’s airport takes you through Jimbaran and across the centre of the Bukit to the revered Uluwatu Temple. En route there are glimpses of the beautiful, if slightly arid, scenery but nothing can prepare you for the dramatic views from The Istana. Imax style panoramas from 60m up on the cliff. Surfers catch waves in the turquoise waters below, fishing boats trawl offshore and the evening sun slides over the uninterrupted horizon. Absolutely magical.

Additional Location Information

The Istana is splendid in its almost total isolation on Bali’s recently trendy Bukit. It shares its magnificent views with a spattering of villas and Uluwatu’s famous temple two kilometres along the cliff face. A few hundred metres down the road, at the bottom of a series of steep steps, is a small hidden away collection of shacks, hostels and cafes, as well as the more upmarket and highly recommended, Single Fin, which offers great pizzas, wonderful sunset views and live music on Sunday nights. All of these places are frequented by the surfers whose mecca is the waves off Suluban Point. These world class breaks can be watched from the quiet comfort of the Istana’s balé. The Blue Point Villa complex is hidden round to the north as is Padang Padang Beach and the nearest noticeable village is Pecatu. There are no shops in the area, apart from surfwear at Single Fin, the boutiques at the upmarket hotels, and the beachsellers' stalls. For a shopping excursion, visit ‘Bali Collection’, at Nusa Dua shopping mall (20km).
