New Luxury Beachfront Villas Open in Bali


Situated at Pererenan, a largely deserted stretch of beach 25 minutes by car from Bali's shopping, dining and clubbing, the estate comprises five luxurious beachfront villas. Pantai Lima is not just another cookie cutter-estate where villas are identical to one another and shoe-horned into a tiny plot of land. Each villa is completely different in design and ambiance one from another, and sited in such a way that one is not aware in the slightest of staying in an estate.

The property extends over four acres. Individual gardens range from 24,220 to 35,200 square feet and the villas themselves all exceed 8,600 square feet of floor area.

Each villa has been uniquely created by French designer Gaelle Echene, with considerable personal input from the owners.

Four villas are 5-bedroom, one has six bedrooms. Many of the bedrooms offer ocean views to wake up to. All five villas are right on the water's edge, sharing 560 feet of beachfront. Guests step from their front lawns straight on to the beach. The beach itself is largely deserted save for an occasional fisherman or surfer.

All villas occupy tropical gardens planted with lush vegetation and palm trees. Swimming pools are equally large scale. All are 100 square metres or larger. Each villa also has a separate shallow pool designed for children. Pantai Lima's iapproach extends to its food and drink policy - no premium is charged for food prepared by French executive chef Manuel Wendling and his team of sous chefs.

Each villa has its own butler who acts as major domo, concierge and household manager. Each villa also has its own sous chefs and kitchen staff working under direction of the French executive

Shared facilities at Pantai Lima include a tennis court with night-lighting, and a 250 square metre seminar room complete with High Definition projection and sound systems.

The estate is about 25 minutes by car from Seminyak, Bali's centre of shopping, dining and nightlife. The world-famous Nirwana Golf Course is just four kilometers to the northwest. The international airport is 45 minutes by car.
