The guest journey begins at the top of the cliff with an elevator ride down the cliff face taking in the spectacular views across the property. An inspired and now legendary feature of the resort.

An open lobby perched on the cliff top and residential style guest accommodations reveal a dramatic panorama of the Indian Ocean. Clifftop or Oceanside with equal appeal.

Guest wings and beach pavilions take inspiration from Balinese concepts of space and roof forms. Timber and stone detailing are complemented by decorative screens and carvings.
