High above the Indian Ocean on the southernmost tip of Bali’s Bukit peninsula lies Villa 3749 – two magnificent cliff-top villas offering spectacular views, stunning living space, a total of nine spacious bedrooms – five in Villa Soham, four in Villa Hamsa – plus two pools, gyms, massage rooms, and a sauna and steam room. While they can be rented separately, the villas connect via gates between their gardens, and larger groups of up to 22 have the option of renting both together. The fully staffed villas are perfect for family and friends seeking a serene holiday villa in a semi-remote area yet within easy reach of top beaches and restaurants and only 30 minutes from the airport.
Villa 3749lies at the edge of the Bukit peninsula, a limestone plateau on the delightfully unspoiled southernmost tip of Bali. It rests within an exclusive enclave of luxury villas that line the cliff high above the Indian Ocean – seemingly miles away from the island’s busiest tourist districts yet just half an hour from the airport. While there is little within walking distance in this dramatic rural setting, just two kilometres away is Pandawa Beach with its stretch of white sand, local cafes and sea sports. Hidden beach coves and famed surf breaks are within easy reach, as is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, some very cool beach clubs and the restaurants of Jimbaran Bay and Nusa Dua.
About The Villas
Welcome to Villa 3749 – two glorious villas perched on the cliff-top on the edge of the Bukit peninsula in the southernmost part of Bali. Here, our guests enjoy one of the most magnificent vistas on the entire island – a view enjoyed from practically every room in both the five-bedroom Villa Soham and four-bedroom Villa Hamsa.
Award-winning Singapore architect Ernesto Bedmar created the stunning contemporary buildings, using Indonesia’s abundant natural materials in soaring recycled ironwood pillars, Merbau-wood pavilion roofs, and walls of riverstone and Palimanan stone. Within the elegant interiors, brightened with an au courant palette of cool grey and white, are inspired design flourishes: signature walls of Bengkirai-wood blocks that bring sparks of light into both living pavilions; headboard panelling made of lacquered rice sacks in all the bedrooms; and over-sized resin-candle pendant lights suspended above Italian Statuario marble-topped dining tables.
The soul of these stunning cliff-top villas is the professionally trained staff team led by the highly experienced villa manager Pak Adhi – together dedicated to treating each guest as celebrity-special. At their heart is the accomplished chef, whose spectacular dishes mirror the inventiveness and elan of the setting in which they’re served.
Whether the villas are booked separately, or together for as many as 22, Villa 3749 offers the level of facilities and service that entice families and friends to stay put and enjoy every aspect. But with a chauffeured car at the ready, guests can be whisked away to the white-sand Pandawa Beach in minutes, and Bali’s best loved surf breaks, sea temples and seafood restaurants are within a half hour’s drive.
The Singapore owners chose a Sanskrit phrase for the estate name; ‘Soham’ – and its inversion ‘ham-sa’ (translating as ‘I am he’) references oneness with the universe and the presence of divinity in each soul. It’s an apt name as this beautiful setting is sure to inspire awe and contemplation on the beauty and richness of life.
Huge reclaimed ironwood doors open onto the first floor garden courtyard and its stunning ocean vista. To one side is the living room and media room with large veranda beyond. To the other side is the dining terrace, powder room and, behind, the kitchen and staff service areas. Above this wing are two bedrooms. Two further guest bedrooms and the master lie a floor below, opening onto ironwood decks poised over lily ponds and looking across the lawn to the large pool and cliff-edge entertainment bale. On a lower level is the large gym, sauna and steam room.
The heart of this villa is the large light-flooded living pavilion that enjoys panoramic views of the ocean glistening towards the horizon. Half of the pavilion is enclosed and air-conditioned; the other half is left open-sided for alfresco living. Under the teakwood-lined vaulted roof, two over-sized sofas and designer all-weather rattan chairs encircle a black marble coffee table. A signature pendant lamp hangs over a massive marble-topped table comfortably seating 12; a butlers’ bar is discreetly tucked away behind.
Behind a stunning feature wall of Bengkirai-wood pivot doors lies the air-conditioned media room, where comfortable seating is sandwiched between the ocean view and small courtyard garden, and set before a 48-inch TV.
Tucked below the pool is a large well-equipped gym with separate rooms for sauna and steam, and a massage room. If required, the gym can be converted into a spacious ocean-view conference room.
One half of the living pavilion comprises an enormous open-sided ironwood veranda lined with bench seating – the best place to enjoy the panoramic ocean vista beyond. Elsewhere on the same level is a dining terrace where eight to 10 guests may enjoy alfresco meals with a killer view.
The focus of outdoor entertainment is the enormous poolside balé with kitchenette and bar counter where guests may relax on comfortable modular seating, while staff serve sunset cocktails or the chef prepares a barbecue. Those wishing to catch the sun can recline on sun loungers set on the stone terrace by the 22-metre infinity pool almost on the cliff edge.
Custom-designed furniture, a soothing grey and ivory colour scheme, 42-inch cable TV and DVD players, extensive wardrobe space and a choice of air-conditioning or overhead fan are features of all five unusually spacious bedrooms. The bathrooms continue the contemporary theme with walls of Javanese marble and smoked glass, and cream acid-washed marble floors; all feature rain showers and there are bathtubs in three of them.
Master Bedroom Suites
Bask in the stunning views across the pool towards the ocean from the 2.4 metre wide Emperor bed resting in the centre of this huge master suite. The view is equally impressive from the bathtub set before a wall of glass in the adjoining ensuite. Both bedroom and ensuite open onto a lotus-lined teakwood deck with private seating.
Pool Guest Suites
One of the two guest bedrooms that flank the master suite is equally spacious, with the same stunning ocean view across the pool from both bedroom and bathroom, a centrally positioned bed comprising two twins (that convert to a king), and with a small terrace beyond the wall of glass. The slightly smaller second guest room has a king-size bed and faces the garden beyond a circular staircase leading to the living pavilion veranda.
Upper Guest Suites
Two further guest suites occupy a third-level wing, both with vaulted roof, twins converting to a king-size bed, daybed and ottoman, and walk-through wardrobe into the shower room. The ocean views from the south-facing guestroom are wonderful.
From the private courtyard secured by heavy ironwood doors, steps over a lotus pond bring guests into Villa Hamsa’s large living pavilion, which opens onto a shaded full-length veranda looking towards the ocean view. At the far end of the pool is the master bedroom suite with cliff-edge private deck. The three guest suites occupy a lower level under the pool, and are accessed by steps to the side of the living pavilion leading to a semi-subterranean passageway with towering windows looking onto a natural rock wall. From there, a staircase spirals down another level to the ocean-view gym and massage room with private cliff-edge garden.
The large, light-filled living pavilion features a vaulted roof, signature screen walls of Bengkirai-wood blocks, and a wall of glass sliding doors opening onto the terrace and looking across the pool towards the master pavilion and the ocean beyond. Two large, deeply upholstered cream sofas and a pair of retro rattan chairs rest on a striking jute carpet from the Philippines, with a black marble coffee table in between. To one side is a matt-black cabinet concealing a 42-inch TV and Sonos sound system. On the other side of the room a massive 2.2-metre marble-topped table with ‘lazy susan’ turntable and ten armchairs sits under a stunning pendant light created from a circle of resin candles.
Two levels down is the well-equipped gym where guests may make use of the treadmill, cycle, cross-trainer, and weights bench while gazing at the expanse of ocean beyond the private garden. There’s also a spa room with two massage beds and a shower.
On the covered pergola terrace is an alfresco dining area, with teakwood table for eight to 10 guests. Sun loungers sit on the longer edge of the pool terrace next to a bench crafted from rough-hewn ironwood.
Accessed via the master bedroom but too magnificent to keep only for its occupants is an enormous ironwood deck with near-180-degree views of the ocean below. Benches along the balustrades on three sides provide the perfect vantage point for enjoying the best views in the villa.
All four spacious bedrooms at this villa feature custom-designed furniture, a soothing grey and ivory colour scheme, extensive wardrobe space and a choice of air-conditioning or overhead fan. The bathrooms continue the contemporary theme with walls of Javanese marble and smoked glass, and cream acid-washed marble floors; all feature rain showers and bathtubs.
The master bedroom suite lies between the pool and the cliff edge perched atop the guest suites block. Under the soaring Merbauwood ceiling sits a massive emperor-size four-poster bed facing the treetops of the adjoining sister Villa 3721. A sofa in the corner makes a cosy reading corner or can be converted to a kid’s bed. A Sonos sound system and 32-inch LED TV on a movable platform provides alternative entertainment to the 180-degree ocean vista beyond the suite’s enormous ironwood deck.
Equally palatial is the bathroom with twin basins on a marble countertop, ceramic bathtub, WC enclosure, wall of well-designed wardrobes and both indoor and outdoor rain showers looking over the ocean.
Occupying the level below the master suite and swimming pool are three spacious guest suites – each with twins convertible to king-size beds, lacquer cabinet concealing a TV and DVD player, marble-topped table and deeply cushioned banquette. One guest bedroom has prime position overlooking the ocean, with a private ironwood deck looking down onto a courtyard garden accessed from the gym, and a wall of glass bringing the stunning view into the bathroom too. The other mirror-image bedrooms look onto a lotus pond within a walled courtyard; in each, a statement bathtub sits on a private ironwood deck accessed by sliding doors from the bathroom.
