Located in the unspoilt neighbourhood of Pandawa Beach in southern Bukit peninsula, this villa provides a flavour of forgotten Bali. Sometimes called Secret Beach because of the way it is hidden in a curve of the limestone cliffs, this is a little visited and idyllically undeveloped area. The Karang Saujana Estate is located at the end of a snaking road, atop of the crags and provides an atmosphere of unrivalled serenity.
Most people cannot bear to drag themselves away from the ocean views and the beautiful amenities. However, if you want to lap up some local culture, hire a driver and take in the sunset at the famous Uluwatu temple where you can watch the Balinese dancers. Or try out some of the famous surf breaks nearby and dine on delicious fresh fish at one of the famous beachfront cafes in Jimbaran Bay. Then again you might want to venture further afield and take a day trip shopping to stylish Seminyak or head off to the spiritual axis of Ubud to visit the famous rice paddies and temples.
