Noku Beach House – Seminyak’s Only Private Beachfront Villa

in News by
Noku Beach House - Stunning beachfront view

There was a time when affluent travellers seeking the ultimate island paradise would slip into a holiday resort – then came luxury villas. Bali has again raised the bar for lavish travel with the launch of Noku Beach House. This game changing retreat is perfectly perched on the Seminyak beachfront – a rare place of privilege and a privately held gem on Bali’s exclusive oceanfront.

The six-suite mansion is oriented toward the sea with a long azure swimming pool, multiple dining areas and alcoves amid curated tropical gardens and pristine lawns. A full-size portable tennis court – in Noku camouflage colours – rolls out when time for play. Deep inside the villa flanking the massive entrance is an exclusive spa which boasts as its centrepiece an oasis pool adorned with hand-made decorative tiles. Here a glass window also converts into an outdoor cinema.

Noku Beach House is opulent six-star luxury dedicated to the mores of the new jet set and those who appreciate rarefied grace and élan. An exclusive and highly skilled army of staff, including a private chef, operates discreetly to service whims around the clock. Leading international luxury villa marketing and management company; Elite Havens, exclusively operates the estate and in doing so they have delivered a lux villa experience that transcends all others.

Elite Havens secured the creative skills of award-winning interior designer Alex Zabotto-Bentley to bring to life this outstanding refurbishment on an essential part of Bali’s famous Seminyak beach landscape. Zabotto-Bentley has created a Zen-style space with a soothing colour palette of light turquoise and blue, which is paired with Moroccan accents. He has commissioned custom furnishings and an art collection of bespoke outsized tribal bead work, antique Indonesian artefacts from across this amazing archipelago and some of nature’s most exquisite designs. Everything from plates to teapots has been artisanal crafted in tiny Balinese villages. The outside poolside dining and rooftop terrace are built from a 100-year-old pier from Borneo.

Guests will revel in the luxury within the flowing spaces of the estate dotted with deep sofas and multiple living zones and endless vistas of ocean and sky. Six contemporary and elegant bedrooms with beautiful bathrooms have every comfort from soft linens to cloud-like beds. Balconies embrace the views – water or lush gardens.

Perched on the towering cliffs above Pandawa Beach on the southern tip of Bali, Sohamsa Ocean Estate is coveted by brides-to-be for its contemporary style and sweeping sea views.

With a grand entrance, spacious courtyard and gorgeous backdrop, this pair of villas is perfectly set up for an idyllic outdoor wedding.

Sohamsa Bali ocean view villaAt Villa Soham, the view is complimented by a 22-metre infinity pool and cliff-edge balé pavilion which works as a covered dining area, lounge or dance floor.

Next door Villa Hamsa is as convenient as can be for VIP guests to stay on-site, but in their own separate villa. It can also serve as a lavish behind-the-scenes dressing room on the big day.

Sohamsa Uluwatu ocean viewsFive-bedroom Villa Soham and four-bedroom Villa Hamsa host 50 people for seated events and can accommodate up to 22 overnight guests.

The multi-tiered property is landscaped with tidy lawns, lotus ponds, lush greenery and understated blooms to create an unbelievably romantic setting for a ceremony and reception. Adding your own wedding flowers and event décor is of course welcome.

Dusk heralds a ‘magic hour’ for photos in the villa’s indoor-outdoor spaces (and picturesque white sand Pandawa Beach is only a two-kilometre drive away, so zipping down to the beach for some shots there is an option too).

Sunset wedding villa bukit baliWeather remains sultry into the evening, and the whole venue is beautifully lit at night. Additional party lights and sound equipment can be brought in as needed. Both villas have high-speed WIFI, PABX room-to-room phone system, Sonos sound system and behind-the-scenes staff areas.

What to Wear to a Wedding in Bali

in Weddings by
Bali wedding ceremony at sunset

The legendary romance of Bali has long seduced celebrities when it comes to staging Gatsby-like nuptials. Thus, the ‘Island of the Gods’ is now a celebrated wedding destination. Perhaps you have already received your invitation? But what to wear to a wedding in Bali?

Bali simmers with wedding fever all year round and being invited to such a joyous celebration is not only an honour and an opportunity for a superb vacation – it’s also the ultimate justification to slip into something sensational.

DESTINATION WEDDING

International weddings, Bali style, are often set on luscious green lawns flanked by tropical gardens or jungle – a horror for high heels; or on soft white sand – shocking for stilettos. Selecting the right footwear can be a challenge for Bali wedding guests. While barefoot beach brides are bound to raise a smile, guests are expected to be suitably shod.

Be sure that your outfit works with flats or low-slung sandals. Super-light silk resort styles are the perfect partner for sexy sandals in the sultry tropics.

Whatever the dress code, frocking up for a Bali wedding should be fun. Think shoestring straps and flowing maxi-dresses; black & white prints and halter necks. Floaty dresses in feather-light silk do well with a stretch cotton underdress to guard against humidity. Another sizzling look is a frilly off-the-shoulder top paired with loose linen trousers or a slender skirt. Classic cotton sundresses, aptly accessorized, are an elegant choice, while the fashion-forward jumpsuit (which American Vogue has tipped to conquer this season’s cocktail parties) works wonderfully at a Bali wedding.

BALINESE WEDDING

If the wedding is traditional Balinese style, be prepared for some striking surprises and be ready to push out your fashion boundaries. Selamat menempuh hidup baru – is the polite way to say congrats.

Indonesian’s adore dressing up so choose something spectacular, formal and traditional. Given the extraordinary outfit the bride will be wearing – complete with a massive golden crown – it will be impossible to outshine her. And expect to see the groom bedecked in an equally magnificent costume; draped with jewelry;
