Villa Markisa

Kutuh village, The Bukit Peninsula, South Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.
10 adults (1 king and 4 split-king beds) plus 2 extra beds on request (additional charge applies).
Villa Markisa, the newest of the Pandawa Estate properties, boasts the same spectacular cliff-top setting and ocean views as its neighbours, Villa Rose and The Pala. This five-bedroomed villa will be especially appreciated by couples and families who enjoy holidaying together, but also treasure having their own private space. The ocean-view guest pavilion holds a pair of matching two-bedroom units, each with its own living and dining rooms and pool. Hovering high above the ocean, and tucked below Markisa's generous lawn, is the splendid one-bedroom master suite, again with its own living room and pool. It's hard to imagine a more romantic setting than this – perfect for newly weds. An open-sided living pavilion and a large cliff-edge bale provide communal living and dining areas.

Villa Markisa has been finished and furnished to the same impeccable standard as the other villas on the Pandawa Cliff Estate and shares a sports centre (with squash and tennis courts), spa and gym with them. The exclusivity and scale of the estate – which can sleep up to 42 adult guests (plus several children in extra beds) has unsurprisingly made it one of Bali's most sought-after destination wedding venues. The large, interconnecting estate grounds, complete with purpose-built facilities, can accommodate weddings for up to 400 guests. Alone, Villa Markisa can host weddings for up to 100 guests.

A friendly yet discreet team of butlers, housekeepers, gardeners, security and kitchen staff all work diligently under the experienced villa manager to take care of every guest requirement and cars with drivers are on hand for those who wish to explore beyond the villa.

The crystal clear, reef-protected waters and white sands of Pandawa Beach lie immediately below the estate and can be reached via a new road that cuts down through the cliff, while many of Bali's best surf beaches are also close by. Only slightly further afield is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, the Bali National Golf Club, some cool beach bars and the many fine-dining and seafood restaurants of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.

The chef and his team will also be pleased to prepare meals according to guests' request and to cater to special diets. To make the most of the kitchen and allow time for grocery shopping, please discuss meal requirements with your villa manager or senior butler in advance.

SPORTS CENTRE AND SPA
MASSAGE
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.

FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.

BODY SCRUB
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.

MANICURE/PEDICURE
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.

VILLA LAYOUT
Villa Markisa's entrance leads to the upper storey of the ocean-facing guest pavilion, with individual access to two mirror-image interconnecting apartments. Each has a living room and bedroom upstairs, and a second bedroom and dining room downstairs opening onto a private deck and pool. An open-sided living pavilion faces the carpet of lawn that rolls towards the ocean, edged by a sunbathing deck and, down a slope, a breezy cliff-edge bale. Hidden away below is the romantic master suite opening onto a cliff-edge garden and pool – with private entrance as well as villa access via the garden.
LIVING AREAS
INDOOR LIVING
One of the many attractions of Villa Markisa is the choice of communal and private living areas.

On the upper level of the guest pavilion are two interconnecting air-conditioned living rooms, each with chic designer furniture — comfortably upholstered L-shaped sofa and leather-seated chairs set around a stylish coffee table facing a 43-inch satellite channel TV. Stairs from both rooms lead down to the dining rooms, each furnished with a glass-topped dining table comfortably seating six and a pair of high stools set before the bar counter separating a small kitchen with fridge. (There's a professional kitchen just behind the villa, fitted with everything required to prepare feasts for guests.) On both levels, the huge doors separating the living and dining areas can be closed off for privacy or retracted for sociable living.

There is also a private living room in the master suite, where a gilded Chinese engagement bed takes centre-stage. Other amenities here include a dining table for four, a butler's pantry and guest washroom.

OUTDOOR LIVING
The social heart of Villa Markisa is the huge open-sided living pavilion that looks out over the vast expanse of lawn separating the guest wing from the cliff-edge master suite. This is the perfect place for afternoon tea reclining on stylishly over-sized rattan chairs, or for gathering family and friends around the eight-seater dining table for an early evening barbecue.

Making the most of the exceptional ocean view is a pavilion with a glass balcony virtually suspended over a small gorge that cuts into the cliff face. From here, you can gaze down on Pandawa Beach, see Nusa Penida on a clear day, catch the sunset, or even spot a migrating whale. Sit back here and enjoy sea-breeze-cooled lunches and leisurely candle-lit dinners accompanied by the soothing sound of the surf far below.

Set on the large ironwood decks that front each of the villa's three swimming pools are all-weather rattan tables and sun-loungers or love seats. There is further turquoise-cushioned sea-view seating on a fourth deck that forms the roof of the master suite.

BEDROOMS
MASTER SUITE
It doesn't get more romantic than this! Hidden out of sight from the rest of the villa, the cliff-front master bedroom at Villa Markisa enjoys spectacular views over its private bougainvillea-filled garden towards the ocean sparkling below. Antique furniture and colourful batiks decorate the room, which has a king-size bed, and seating area facing a 50-inch satellite channel TV. The marble bathroom is equally spacious, with walk-in dressing area, twin basins, rain shower enclosure and sea-view terrazzo bathtub. The bedroom opens onto an ironwood deck, where an upholstered loveseat sits before a large free-form swimming pool.
GUEST SUITES
All four air-conditioned guest bedrooms are furnished with split-king beds resting against upholstered batik headboards; each can be set up as a king or twins, giving added flexibility for different guest group configurations. Each bedroom has a seating area – whether a pair of high-backed Chinese chairs or a leather chaise longue – resting on the marble-edged teakwood floor. All enjoy enchanting ocean views; the upper-level rooms opening onto a glass-fronted balcony, and the two garden level bedrooms onto the pool decks.

The ensuite bathrooms are equally generous in size, with walk-in wardrobes/dressing areas, twin basins on marble vanities, monsoon shower enclosures, and statement bathtubs.

Prices and availability
THINGS TO DO
Your villa manager, will have a wealth of information about places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the area too. Most will live nearby and can give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life.
Until recently, the white sands and warm, protected waters of Pandawa Beach were visited only by locals and seaweed farmers. A paved (toll) road cut through the cliff has recently made this beautiful beach, which lies immediately below the estate, much more accessible.
Among other local beaches is the famous surf beach at Uluwatu. Not quite as spectacular but equally alluring are the beaches of Bingin and Padang Padang. Beautiful white sand bays with rock pools and a host of local cafes.
At Jenggala Keramic in Jimbaran, visitors can browse and buy from a vast range of handcrafted ceramics and glassware. Jenggala also runs 'Make and Paint a Pot' sessions where 'Children' of all ages are encouraged to get creative.
For golf enthusiasts, the New Kuta Golf Club (11km) features an 18-hole course overlooking the ocean.
A seafood feast at Jimbaran is a must for every holiday in Bali – dozens of seafood warung (cafés) line this west-facing beach, perfect for a sunset dinner.Fine dining options are available at most of the big resort hotels in this area; notably PJ's, the charming beachside restaurant at the Four Seasons in Jimbaran, serving Mediterranean-styled cuisine. And Balique on Jalan Uluwatu in Jimbaran, is a delightful vintedge restaurant serving great food and cool cocktails.
Both five star and local restaurants are plentiful and close by. Bulgari and Ayana resorts are among the favourites and the Rock Bar at Ayana is a must-see for sunset cocktails. Finns at Semara has a beach club for more casual dining.
Nusa Dua's Bali Collection mall has a host of local boutiques and a department store. Heading towards Kuta (about 40 minutes) brings you to Galleria shopping mall while nearby Tuban has Discovery Mall and streets lined with local shops. Seminyak boutiques are about an hour away.
Uluwatu's cliff-top temple is well worth a visit. Home to mischievous monkeys which are considered sacred in Bali, Pura Luhur Uluwatu is one of the island's most important temples. Get there in good time for Sunset to watch the enthralling Kecak Ramayana & Fire Dance.
Learn to surf or stand up paddle at Jimbaran Bay, a great place for beginners. Rip Curl School of Surf offers day courses and provides all the equipment.
Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
Location
Peacefully and privately situated at the end of a winding country lane on Bali's southernmost tip, Pandawa Cliff Estate is a hidden paradise overlooking the Indian Ocean from its enchanting cliff-top setting.

Apart from a handful of other luxury villas sprinkling the top of the cliff, and the beach huts and local cafés bordering the white sands of Pandawa Beach far below (named after the five warrior brothers of the Mahabharata epic, whose white stone statues are carved into niches along the road leading down to the beach), there is little development in this unspoiled corner of Bali. But despite it's tranquil, rural setting, Pandawa Cliff Estate is less than 30 minutes' drive from Bali's international airport, and within easy reach of several glorious surf beaches, the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, and the many restaurants and beach bars of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.
