The Villas at AYANA Resort has relaunched 24 ultra-luxurious Ocean View Pool Villas following a complete renovation, designed to celebrate Balinese style and maximize the unrivaled ocean and sunset views of this exclusive retreat. Perfect for couples on honeymoon or a romantic rekindling, the one-bedroom Ocean View Pool Villas are among 78 spacious villas nestled within this breath-taking cliff-top sanctuary, which was announced as the World’s Leading Island Villas at the World Travel Awards in November. Inspired by the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana, the design exudes a true sense of ‘place’.
Guests enter a calming space of warm palettes and textures, hand-crafted artworks, plush bedding and decor, and the seamless indoor to outdoor living that reflects the island’s iconic style. The gardens are a hive of colours and fragrances leading to koi ponds, bridges and streams, and connecting with a jogging track to the private white-sand beach.
“We have maintained the overall layout of the Ocean View Pool Villas as our guests told us they loved the views to the ocean, the large plunge pools, and the lush gardens which ensure privacy,” said Clive Edwards, General Manager. “But we have completely changed the interiors including all furniture and fixtures, and significantly increased living spaces and natural lighting. The result is a cosy cocoon where guests feel at home surrounded by the spirit and hospitality of Bali.”
Following the renovation, the one-bedroom Ocean View Pool Villas feature:
• 15% increase in size of interior living area, as part of the total 298sqm of indoor and outdoor space including plunge pool;
• New canopy-style beds with indigenous textiles and throw cushions;
• 50% larger marble bathroom designed around a hand-carved Roman-style bath centrepiece, with additional indoor-outdoor shower featuring an all-glass wall for natural light and garden views;
• Completely new furniture and fixtures, drapery, hardware and other decor;
• New indoor and outdoor furniture to enable more outdoor entertaining poolside, and a more comfortable in-Villa dining experience;
• New lighting, air-conditioning system, and 55-inch HD-TVs in living room and bedroom;
• Spacious walk-in wardrobe;
• Landscaping of garden and pool terrace area.
The Villas at AYANA Resort also include 38 one-bedroom Cliff Pool Villas with a more modern minimalist design, as well as 10 two-bedroom villas and the jewel in the crown: the three-bedroom AYANA Villa, the island’s most exclusive escape for a wedding, honeymoon or private event.
Couples enjoying a romantic escape or honeymoon can make the most of their hideaway with a floating brunch served in their pool, a magical sunset flower bath, romantic candle-light dinner, soul-balancing in-villa massage, or simply lazy days soaking up the sun and ocean views with no disturbances. Butlers certified annually by the Guild of Professional Butlers UK – the same organization that trains butlers for royalty and celebrities – take care of every whim with discreet, thoughtful service, while Personal Assistants are also available to plan a memorable holiday even before touch down at the airport. In addition, the signature “AYANA’s Little Luxuries” complimentary benefits are provided exclusively for all guests of The Villas at AYANA Resort to further enhance the experience, and include guaranteed sunset reservation at Rock Bar, Bali’s most spectacular venue for sundowners.
There is plenty on offer for guests who would like to explore the pleasures of AYANA Resort and Spa beyond their Villa. Indulge in an ultra-lavish treatment at Spa on the Rocks villas surrounded by the crystal waters of Jimbaran Bay, or release tension and sleep like a baby after a thalassotherapy session in the world’s largest Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool. Picnic at private Kubu Beach, laze around infinity-edged ocean-front pools, escape for a romantic dinner on AYANA’s private jetty, or get active with golf-putting, tennis, yoga and gym. Choose from 3 restaurants for breakfast and work your way around the various dining venues including the iconic Rock Bar and beach-front Kisik for a sunset seafood BBQ.
