The Istana villa elements are uniquely blended to worship the heritage of it's powerful and awe-inspiring location. This 5 Bedroom luxury Bali house unifies modern and antique, European influence with an Oriental focus on style, serenity and detail. The abundant use of earthy materials such as rich teak and ironwood compliment this mix and merge the building with the landscape, lush flora and transcendent view. The artwork represents a mixture of Indonesian primitive art and antiques to highlight the tradition and feel of the villa's aura.

This five suite estate located in Uluwatu overlooks white sand beaches and a lagoon abundant with sea life and coral, and at night, magical sunsets. When the trade winds blow, a massive swell crashes onto the surrounding reef, crafting waves that attract worldwide surfing attention.

The main house hosts a living space, dining room, entertainment area (the Dotcom room), and four identical bedroom suites. A separate guest house comprises the master suite. Both buildings are single-story and open-air, inspiring a natural ambiance while accentuating the breathtaking view. With an extensive staff providing a level of service unrivaled outside of a luxury hotel, restaurant standard food, a full time manager, butlers and chauffeur - all devoted to facilitating intimate service amongst private splendor. There is no parallel.


The Istana boasts a total of 5 bedroom suites (each with double beds) and 2 children bedrooms that can sleep up to a total of ten adults and 4 children. The 2-bedroom games and children’s wing can sleep up to four small children and infants and two domestic staff. The master-suite is in its own building to the north side of the property featuring a deck and a small private swimming pool. Looking at the central building – it’s in a rough ‘H’ shape; with each end of the ‘H’ possessing a bedroom. Looking at the ocean, the two symmetrical wings attached to the living room accommodate dining room to the left (the south), and the television room to the right (the north).

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is located within the 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 swimming pool. The L-shape pool is two and a half meters deep and is faced with a black volcanic stone. It has its own outdoor shower and lounge chairs. The master bedroom/guesthouse which is built largely from wood, and enhanced with a tropical modern twist is divided into a covered deck, living area, and a bedroom with an expansive ensuite bathroom. The master-suite looks out over the property, and is enclosed on either side by sliding louvered glass doors. A spectacular view of the ocean is provided from the large bed which is the center piece of the room. The expansive ensuite bathroom is fashioned in cream terrazzo and fitted with a sunken bathtub. There is also a walk-in shower and a toilet hidden behind frosted glass. Twin marble washbasins rest on a long vanity unit complete with large wall mirrors. Wardrobes with mirrored doors present plenty of hanging and storage space. Glass doors open to an outside walled area complete with an outdoor rainshower and a cushioned daybed. Comfortable chairs on the Master Suite’s deck afford one a view of looking directly out from over the private pool to the bale and the horizon behind.

Garden Suites

The two garden suites (on the east side of the main building) feature private gardens along with their other amenities. Both suite entries are decorated with carved limestone blocks representing traditional Ikat weavings from the islands of Flores and Sumba. Each of the matching suites is comprised of a bedroom and indoor and outdoor Bali-style ensuite bathrooms. All of the bedroom walls are done in white leading up to the high cathedral timber-lined ceilings with ceiling fans, and air-conditioning. The garden suites are equipped with flat screen TVs with surround sound and DVD players and small stereos and each garden suite is complemented by a private walled sun-lounging area with a raised wooden deck and daybeds for relaxing.

Ocean Suites

Each of the two matching Ocean Suites (the bedrooms in the main building on the west side) is comprised of a bedroom with a capacious walk-in closet, and indoor and outdoor Bali-style bathrooms. A dramatic backdrop wall acts as magnificent head board. The walls are dressed in white, with natural colored soft furnishings complimenting the high cathedral timber-lined ceilings with ceiling fans, and air-conditioning. Both suites also boast extensive ensuite bathrooms with twin basin vanities, bathtubs, and indoor and outdoor showers. The ocean suites each open up onto the front lawn and feature dramatic ocean backdrops.

 rented  Villa The Istana  

Istana is one of the nicest places we have stayed at in the world. It’s architecture,location,facilities, friendly staff, great food and good management ensured that our family of 14 had a wonderful holiday there to celebrate my 70th birthday. The accommodation was perfect for our group of 7 adults and 7 children.

 rented  Villa The Istana  

The Istana is amazing in every regard from the first moment you take in the view to the last moment when the staff wave you goodbye. The villa is absolutely stunning. The staff are exceptionally professional, wonderfully friendly and most importantly, unobtrusive. It is a very special place for those who seek discretion and the highest standard of luxury.
