Right on the edge of the Bukit peninsula lies Sohamsa Ocean Estate, a limestone plateau on the impressive southernmost tip of Bali. It rests within an exclusive enclave of luxury villas that line the cliff high above the Indian Ocean – seemingly miles away from the island’s busiest tourist districts yet just half an hour from the airport. While there is little within walking distance in this dramatic rural setting, just two kilometres away is Pandawa Beach with its stretch of white sand, local cafes and sea sports. Hidden beach coves and famed surf breaks are within easy reach, as is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, some very cool beach clubs and the restaurants of Jimbaran Bay and Nusa Dua.
The heart of Villa Soham is the large light-flooded living pavilion that enjoys panoramic views of the ocean glistening towards the horizon. Half of the pavilion is enclosed and air-conditioned; the other half is left open-sided for alfresco living. Under the teakwood-lined vaulted roof, two over-sized sofas and designer all-weather rattan chairs encircle a black marble coffee table. A signature pendant lamp hangs over a massive marble-topped table comfortably seating 12; a butlers’ bar is discreetly tucked away behind.
Behind a stunning feature wall of Bengkirai-wood pivot doors lies the air-conditioned media room, where comfortable seating is sandwiched between the ocean view and small courtyard garden, and set before a 48-inch TV.
Tucked below the pool is a large well-equipped gym with separate rooms for sauna and steam, and a massage room. If required, the gym can be converted into a spacious ocean-view conference room.
Villa Soham has a total of 5 bedrooms with kingsized beds and ensuite bathrooms. On the upper floor you’ll find 2 guest suites with ensuite bathrooms with shower. The lower floor 2 more guest suites ensuit bathrooms with shower and bath, and the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub. Traveling with singles or a group of friends? 3 of the bedrooms can be easily converted to twin beds.
