About The Longhouse
With sensational views from its hilltop position in Jimbaran, outstanding architectural design, evocative Indonesian antiques and gourmet cuisine, The Longhouse provides a true feast for the senses. Rich in sumptuous detail, and boasting an infinity pool, enchanting terraced gardens and six private bedrooms – each uniquely themed to a different region of Indonesia – The Longhouse is ideal for groups, extended families and intimate weddings. A team of experienced staff provide the warmest of welcomes and a complimentary car and driver is available to whisk you to Jimbaran’s tranquil bay, the revered cliff-top temple of Uluwatu, or the world famous surf beaches of the Bukit Peninsula.
The 180-degree coastal panorama from The Longhouse will take your breath away. The narrow isthmus that separates The Bukit Peninsula from the rest of Bali is clearly visible over the treetops and a chain of majestic volcanoes loom in the distance. At night, the view of the island’s southern plains ablaze with twinkling lights is equally spectacular.
Designed by renowned Balinese architect, Popo Danes, The Longhouse is a three-storey masterpiece of contemporary tropical design. Integrating the natural contours of the land this spacious villa is an intriguing maze of thatched roofs, lush gardens and cascading water features. Evocative interiors reflect the owners’ love of their adopted island home, with hand-picked textiles, furnishings and antiques collected during extensive travels across the Indonesian archipelago.
The atmospheric living room on the upper floor melds seamlessly with the infinity pool just beyond, and the villa’s six generous bedrooms are each imbued with their own unique Indonesian flavour. The villa’s long narrow design affords similar stunning views from every room and this, combined with a delightful garden, convivial dining room, air-conditioned gym, spa room and home theatre, makes The Longhouse a perfect holiday retreat.
From the moment you arrive you will be lavished with the warm hospitality that the Balinese are so famous for. The experienced, staff team includes two talented chefs, equally adept at whipping up Italian, Asian, Moroccan and Balinese feasts from a suggestion menu (on guest account) or grilling up a seafood barbecue. In-villa activities include the art of Balinese flower offerings, private yoga classes and decadent spa packages, while a complimentary car and driver is on hand for those who wish to explore the rugged beauty of the Bukit Peninsula and beyond.
