Detailed description: This five-suite estate overlooks white sand beaches and a lagoon abundant with sea life and coral, and in the evenings, magical sunsets. Set back 40 metres from the cliff face, The Istana is a gated property comprised of two swimming pools, a relaxation bale, the main house, the self-contained, single-storey master suite, and a children’s wing located above the staff service area. The single-storey main house is a study in perfect symmetry, architecturally inspired by an Indonesian long house. It presents a living room, dining room, an audio-video room and four identical bedroom suites.

The open air living room is designed to maximise the view. Accessed via the main entrance, from the garden, it features a honey-coloured teakwood floor and is furnished with segmented daybed-style sofas and ottomans. The room is cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans positioned within the high roof. There is also a large bar fashioned in black marble, complete with chic barstools; this is a perfect spot for enjoying a cocktail, and is fully stocked with international wines, spirits liqueurs & mixers. Two symmetrical wings attached to the living room accommodate the dining room to one side, and the AV room to the other.

This air-conditioned dining room is fully panelled internally and externally with teakwood, evoking a warm comfortable feel. The room is enclosed by four sets of swinging glass doors that can open up if desired to overlook the water lily gardens to one side, and the ocean to the other. The AV room is an air-conditioned home theatre with timber-clad walls and bookshelves. Covered in Thai silk pillows, it faces a wide-screen projection TV and entertainment centre.

Spectacularly positioned on the cliff top with breathtaking views of the ocean and Suluban Beach, the large relaxation balé incorporates a lounging area, a bar, and a sunken tatami table with cushioned seating for twelve. Music speakers are installed in the roof and the cushioned lounge area provides the perfect space to chill and enjoy a sunset cocktail. The panoramic view spans the Indian Ocean and Bali’s spectacular coastline. To the north, the narrow isthmus that links the Bukit with the rest of the island is clearly visible, with the view extending past the crescent-shaped Jimbaran Bay and the airport to Bali’s sunset coast.

One wing, located on an upper floor at the back of the property, is devoted entirely to children. It features a lounge/living space complete with sofas, a pool table, Playstation, TV/DVD and Bose sound system. A bedroom with fitted bunks provides sleeping space for five kids, and there is also a nanny’s room.

The master bedroom is located within a self-contained, single-storey guesthouse, which is separate from and slightly more elevated than the main building, and set back so as to offer complete privacy. It has its own entrance way, parking facilities, and private L-shaped 12 x 5 metre swimming pool, lined with black volcanic stone. The bedroom features a soaring roof, timber-clad walls and a recycled teakwood floor. It is furnished with a king-size bed complete with a padded headboard. At the base of the bed, a flat screen ‘Pioneer’ TV with DVD is hidden within a rising cabinet that appears at the press of a button. The expansive ensuite bathroom is fashioned in cream terrazzo and fitted with a sunken bathtub.

The ocean suites open up to the dramatic ocean, while the garden suites open up to the gardens facing the entrance. The garden suites are equipped with TV/DVD players and each garden suite is complemented by a private walled sunlounging area. Each of the matching suites is comprised of a bedroom with a capacious walk-in closet, and indoor and outdoor Bali-style bathrooms. All of the bedrooms are walled on two sides by folding glass doors which open up to the private gardens in the case of the bedrooms facing the entrance of the property, and on the other side which open onto the ocean. Each ensuite bathroom is walled in white sandstone and features bands of intricate designs in carved stone.

Stretching 32 metres along the front of the estate, The Istana’s main swimming pool has a breathtaking side to side infinity edge on the ocean side. The two-level lawn is bordered by flowering bougainvillea and dotted with coconut palms.
