Standing proud on the edge of a tree-lined gorge, integrated into the natural contours of the hill, Villa 3176 shines as both a modern family holiday home and a glamorous wedding venue. This four-bedroom property is situated just a few minutes’ walk from one of Bali’s most famous surf beaches on the extreme south-western tip of the Bukit Peninsula. From its rooftop stargazing terrace to its 15-metre swimming pool, the villa is cleverly designed to maximise the magnificent sea views and invite the outdoors inside, while a full team of staff are on hand to look after every guest’s need.
About The Villa
This stunningly situated, fully staffed holiday retreat was inspired by an enduring love story that started on the very spot where the villa now stands; such is the dramatic allure of the Uluwatu cliffs on the south-western tip of Bali.
The views from almost every room in the villa will leave you speechless. Built over three levels and perched on the edge of a verdant valley, with the Indian Ocean stretching out to one side and the forested hills of the dramatically scenic Bukit Peninsula to the other, Villa 3176 cannot fail to impress.
A comfortably furnished rooftop terrace with a panorama that takes in Bali’s distant volcanic peaks, and a bright airy media room equipped with large TV and Sony sound system, preside over the villa’s top floor. Below, folding glass doors and windows surround the living and dining room, creating a seemingly infinite space. Soft grass, soothing ponds – even a shallow pool with teak garden furniture placed at its centre to keep toes cool while sunbathing or star-gazing – bring the outdoors in. Also on this open-plan floor is a modern kitchen with top-range appliances and a breakfast bar with a view. But it’s at ground level that guests are likely to spend the lion’s share of their time. An elbow-shaped, indoor—outdoor swimming pool with shallow kids area, whirlpool jets, sundeck and loungers extends into the garden from a poolside lounge equipped with a bar and a huge cushioned daybed to provide shady relaxation.
Villa 3176’s four luxurious bedrooms are situated on varying levels, affording extra privacy and the best views from their private terraces. Three offer king-size beds and one is twin-bedded, convertible to a king. Each of the ensuite bathrooms boasts a double jacuzzi tub.
Welcome to Villa 3176, a place to sample the very best of Bali hospitality and luxury living!
The multi-level Villa 3176 comprises four air-conditioned bedrooms – each with an ensuite bathroom and a private balcony or terrace, while the master has its own sitting area. Centrally positioned is the living and dining area with integrated fully equipped kitchen, surrounded by glass walls and windows that can be opened for tropical living or closed for air-conditioned comfort. On the top flooris an air-conditioned media room, and furnished rooftop terrace. Downstairs, merging with the flower-filled garden and 15-metre pool is a shady poolside lounge and bar. The shallow end of the pool, featuring whirlpool jets and a waterfall, is perfect for young children, as they can safely play here shaded by the roof of the pool lounge. Beside the pool a flat lawn provides a stunning setting for parties and small weddings.
Living, dining and kitchen
Folding glass doors on three sides of Villa 3176’s mid-level living and dining area create a sense of oneness with the outdoors and the illusion of tremendous space. Soft couches and a coffee table form a sitting area, a dining table lies at the room’s centre and a modern and well-fitted Western kitchen occupies the far end of this bright space, complete with a window-side breakfast bar, and central prep island. Cooled three ways by ceiling fans, natural breezes and air conditioning, this floor also boasts a unique feature:a shallow pond just outside faces the ocean with two deck chairs at its centre, inviting guests to soothe their weary feet in its cool waters.
Media room and rooftop terrace
On the top floor of the villa, a second lounge/media room is furnished with comfortable couches and easy chairs and comes equipped with a 42-inch satellite-channel TV, Nintendo Wii and surround-sound entertainment. Again, lots of windows create a cool and breezy environment with great views over the ocean and surrounding landscape. Beyond the media room is a large stone terrace with all-weather couches and cushion – made for sunset cocktails and for watching the unveiling of the night sky.
Garden, pool and lounge bar
Down at ground level, and accessed via two staircases, one on eitherside of the living and dining room, the villa’s 15 x 3-metre, elbow-shaped swimming pool is part outdoors and part under cover. At the garden end is a paved terrace furnished with sunloungers and umbrellas, while by the pool lounge is a shallow area fitted with therapeutic whirlpool jets – ideal for young children and shade-seekers.
The relaxed poolside lounge features a bar, TV, sound system, couches and a large cushioned daybed, which can double as a massage area. Alongside the pool is a perfectly manicured lawn overlooking the forested valley and creating an ideal setting for small events or weddings for up to 30 people.
The bedrooms at Villa 3176 are all spacious and comfortable, each with a king-size bed (one convertible from twin beds), couches, TVs, jacuzzi tubs, terraces or balcony sitting areas, and ensuite bathrooms. The master, at ground level, offers the most privacy. It is the largest of the four with a its own sitting area, marble floors and outdoor shower. On one side of the bedroom, water silently cascades down a wall from an ornamental pond above. Bedroom two is situated above the master, though slightly smaller in size. Bedrooms three and four are located off to the side of the main building. They are almost mirror images of each other except the downstairs suite has an outdoor shower and garden views, while upstairs has sea views from its terrace.

Villa 3176 is located on the most south-westerly tip of the beautiful area known as The Bukit – a limestone plateau rising sharply from the sea, fringed by steep cliffs and some of the most idyllic beaches and surf breaks in Bali. Most are no more than a few minutes’ drive away, but there is also a private pathway from the villa to the secluded Suluban Beach which, with its clear water and pristine white sands, is a favourite among surfers and beach junkies.
While there is very little by the way of shops and fine-dining close to the villa (hiring a car and driver is strongly recommended if you wish to explore), there is a slew of surfer hangouts, beach bars and small Indonesian warungs (restaurants), within a couple of kilometres, where cold beer and good local food can be had.
