Welcome to
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 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 layout

The Longhouse extends over three floors, each connected by a lift to the ground floor parking area.  On the upper floor are the living and dining rooms, kitchen, master bedroom and swimming pool.  Below are three guest bedrooms and the home cinema, plus, at a slightly lower level, two twin bedrooms separated by a sitting area that opens to the garden.  Lower still, the villa’s mezzanine level is home to a spa room, gym, kids’ play area and the staff quarters.

Carved into the wall of pale local stone that forms the villa’s backbone, little alcoves display statues and paintings evoking the epic story of the Ramayana, and passageways dotted with intimate seating areas and open stairways link spaces together.

The rooms

Each of the six air-conditioned bedrooms is inspired by an island or region of Indonesia, and ornamented with unique textiles, artefacts and antique jewellery. All have private outdoor areas (either garden or terrace) and extensive views. Features common to all rooms include flat-screen 26-inch satellite TVs, walk-in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms with large rain showers.


At the entrance to the Bali master suite, magnificent carved wooden doors open onto a generous study/sitting room. Beyond, the bedroom is furnished with a bamboo, king-size four-poster bed, and embellished with Balinese objects d’art.  Glass doors fold back to a plunge pool and balcony with views matched by those from the large tub in the adjacent ensuite bathroom.  In a private garden beyond the bathroom is a cascading waterfall and outdoor shower.


Located just below the Bali master suite, the spacious Lombok bedroom is surrounded by fishponds and a frangipani-filled courtyard garden.  The four-poster king  bed is accented with olive green hand woven brocade and the room is furnished with antique wood pieces.  A tub overlooks a thicket of heliconia and glass doors open onto the gardens and a cushioned day bed.


The cosy Sumba bedroom is circled by a private veranda.  A rustic dark wood four-poster bed is draped in mosquito netting and colourful hand woven Sumbanese ikat and furnishings include a beautiful wood-carved love seat.  The bathroom has a lustrous sheen thanks to creamy-hued onyx floor tiles and hand basins, and a mirror framed in glistening onyx tiles.


This large room evokes the Sumatran jungle, with soothing green décor and a sturdy king-sized bed adorned with silk brocade woven with gold thread.  Elephants are embroidered onto cushions topping a sofa that converts to a single bed .  The opulent bathroom has gleaming black stone walls and a copper basin.  Outside, on a timber deck, is a bathtub carved from river rock, fringed by a bamboo fence, lush foliage and dangling lanterns.

East Java

On one side of a sitting area that opens onto to the garden, this twin room (convertible to king) is identical in size to West Java, but varies in décor.  Colour-themed in earthy browns, East Java features a beautiful carved wall panel originally made to hold one of Java's most revered ceremonial objects - the kris knife. A glass sliding door opens onto the garden.

West Java

Across the sitting area, West Java, also a twin room (convertible to king) is identical in size to East Java. Blue batik fabric covers the beds in this room, which is decorated with antique Wayang puppets, a colonial-style wrought iron lamp and fabulous batik prints in the bathroom. A glass sliding door opens onto the garden as well.
