The west facing Istana resides on a southwestern tip of Bali, Indonesia, in an area named The Bukit. This five suite estate 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 breaks are rated the fifth best in the world. Uluwatu beach is only a ten minute walk from the villa.

Uluwatu temple, one of the most revered temple on the island, is just a five minute drive away. A dedicated team of over 20 professional staff makes this magnificent luxury villa your home in the Island of the Gods.

The Istana boasts a total of 5 bedroom suites (each with double beds) that can sleep up to a total of ten adults. In addition, the games and children 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 is 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).
