The Longhouse – Jimbaran 6 bedroom luxury villa, Bali The Longhouse – Jimbaran 6 bedroom luxury villa, Bali
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 car and driver  is on available (extra charge applies) for those who wish to explore the rugged beauty of the Bukit Peninsula and beyond.

Dining

Our two chefs Ngurah and Budi are at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ngurah is an absolute wizard with cakes and desserts, while Balinese food is a specialty of Budi’s.

The Longhouse offers delicious meals from a suggestion menu featuring Asian and western dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options. We can also tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements or specific requests.

Themed banquets range from regional Indonesian delights, to Italian and Moroccan cuisine, all complemented by wine or cocktails.  The staff love to throw a party – decorating the gardens for Balinese festivities and organising a traditional dance ensemble for entertainment. The chefs will personally select the freshest catch from Jimbaran market for lavish seafood barbecues, and also offer private cookery classes, which include a trip to the market (charges apply).

For stays of more than one week we offer a complimentary Rindik orchestra in the garden – the perfect accompaniment to an alfresco feast or pre-dinner canapés.

All groceries and beverages are costed at market price plus a 20% handling fee (which is subject to prevailing government tax and service charges).  Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference.  To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.
