DINING

The open-air dining space with its soaring rafters and flickering candles invites guests to fall in love with locally sourced Indonesian flavours. With the waves ever present, you can lose yourself in the changing moods of the Indian Ocean. All ingredients make their way from pool and paddock to plate within a fifty-mile radius. From the chef’s signature coconut salad to tender sweet chicken wrapped in a banana leaf- healthy harmonious food keeps energy levels high for the next surf session.

POOLSIDE

Two beautiful pools located close to Suarga’s stunning bamboo structure provide plenty of space to swim, splash or sink down in cool waters and gaze at panoramic ocean views. The adult’s pool is perfect for laps and the children’s pool close by offers sun-glazed temperatures for Little Wayfarers. Natural foliage, warm decking, and comfortable sunbeds set a welcoming scene for those afternoons that flow best with a book in one hand and detox juice in another.

SPA & WELLNESS

Realign your bliss with a massage from the One&Only trained therapists. A well-curated spa menu and treatment room invites guests to shrug off tight tensions and worries in favour of healing hands and natural remedies.

ADULT TIME

Babysitting services can be booked in advance for parents who want some alone time dining beneath the stars, or who may be looking to paddle out together to catch a few waves.

ACCOMMODATION

With only 36 villas for artistically minded travellers, Suarga takes architectural pleasure to the next level. Using traditional Indonesian techniques, intelligent practises and a generous dash of modern repose. Guests are sure to be smitten by the cool touch of stone, sea breezes rustling through bamboo, and open-air structures that blur the lines between indoor and alfresco living.

MUSO PENTROOMS

Taking its name from the soaring wonder of the worlds largest bamboo species, the Muso Pentrooms capture that sweet space between layered comfort and elegant affordability. Natural materials abound and sustainability seeps into every corner; from the Frederick sourced beams to the seashell crafted ornaments, locally woven batiks, and lemongrass blooming on the mezzanine. The main bedroom invites two guests to sink down in restful bliss, while the mezzanine offers space for one or two more. The circular open-air bathrooms are whittled from stone and soft hewn wood creating spaces that inspire wellness.

 

ULIN PAVILION

The Ulin Pavilions communicate the very ethos behind the concept of Suarga. Using regenerated ironwood from the old pontoons of Borneo, these rooms instantly connect you with Mother Nature. Dark wood and teaks adorn the walls and floor, and the beautifully constructed bathrooms ring with notes of copper and sun warmed stone. Each of the 11 rooms come with Balinese crafted four poster beds and some with daybeds making them the perfect choice for honeymooners, couples or small families. With indigenous soft furnishings and a lazy terrace flooded with light and salt whipped breezes, a sigh of delight is ever upon your lips at Ulin.

 

WANTILAN VILLA

Intuitive spaces should always come with a pinch of versatility, and the wonder of the Wantilan Villas offer just that. Three sublime structures connected by a fairy-tale bridge can be booked as three separate suites or as one imaginative six-suite space. Light and airy bedrooms dressed in wood and linen offer front row ocean views. Private dining spaces invite flickering lantern suppers beneath the stars. Ingenious low hanging bamboo roofs keep everything deliciously cool even in the most humid months. Open air bathrooms whisper repurposed charm with copper lined sinks and merbau beams. Shimmering in front of the villas there is also a private 120 sqm pool for moonlit plunging.

JURANG VILLA

Clinging to a cliffside that tumbles down to greet the mirage like hues of the Indian Ocean, the Jurang Villas take their cues from the splendor of traditional Balinese homes. Carved teak rewrites mythology, wooden decks lead to sunken dining spaces, and private pools glitter invitingly in the fresh morning sun. Scattered daybeds and plump cushions marry Sumba stone and wooden cladding, and curved pathways cut through secret gardens. Inside the villas, guests will find soothing tones, Ajiro rattan from local weavers in Borneo, and painted ceramics that gracefully elevate the already striking natural views that stretch across the sea.

BAJAU VILLA

Taking her name and inspiration from the last sea gypsies of Indonesia, Bajau is a destination in itself. Carved into the curves of the cliff, the special home is a surfer’s dream – offering pristine panoramas of Bali’s four most spectacular breaks. Warm teak flooring, sprawl out sofas, and windows that frame the famous views are just the tip of what Bajau has to offer. A socially constructed kitchen, bar and dining space nurtures laughter well into the night, and four bedrooms dressed in natural materials and evocative batiks create a mise-en-scene for sincere sleeps. A cleverly constructed standalone pavilion aptly named room-of-a-poet offers sweeping views across the ocean, complemented by natural stone flooring, and a hand-woven ceiling. Lush gardens, wild wonders, and cliffside yoga are the finishing touches to the vision that is the Bajau Villa.

MOUNT BATUR HIKES

CULTURAL BLISS

From the deep yoga breath inlands of Ubud to the water temple of Tanah Lot, Suarga is a sublime base for exploring all of Bali’s cultural treasures. The Uluwatu Temple and the 16th century splendour of Tanah Lot offer unrivalled photo opportunities especially when caught in the final golden fingers of sunset.

SURFING

Bali’s Bukit Peninsula is a surfer’s paradise with white sand beaches, ancient temples crumbling on the cliffside, and warm blue waters. With Padang Padang right outside your door, you can be first in line up to ride this world-class wave. Suarga is perfectly positioned with Uluwatu, Impossibles and Bingin only a couple of minutes down the road. Some of Bali’s waves aren’t for the faint-hearted, but beginners can find gentler more playful breaks closer to the beach at Padang Padang and Dreamland.

SURROUNDING BREAKS

Uluwatu – One of Bali’s most iconic waves, magical Uluwatu is a world-class left-hand reef break that holds a special place in surfers’ hearts. Situated on the southwestern tip of the Bukit Peninsula, these waves deserve respect and are recommended for the advanced surfer. There are 5 breaks at Uluwatu (starting from the north): The Peak, Racetrack, Outside Corner, Temples and The Bombie, each with a character all of its own, depending on the time of the day and the size of the swell. Each has a character all of its own depending on swell and time of day. Wear your reef booties and enjoy the ride.

Padang Padang – Dubbed the ‘Balinese Pipeline’, Padang Padang is one the best left-hand reef breaks on earth, Padang Padang is for experienced surfers only.

Impossibles – A famous left-hand reef break for experienced surfers with multiple take-off points and lots of room to play.

Bingin – Set in a scenic and rugged location, this shallow, hollow and powerful wave is  one for the pros. Bingin works best at high tide and is recommended for advanced surfers.

Balangan – The long grinding waves of this left-hand reef break are best suited to intermediate surfers.

Nyang Nyang – is just down the road – a short, punchy right-hander, what the wave lacks in quality makes up for with the experience. Nyang Nyang beach is considered one of the most beautiful spots on the island, with spectacular views from the top of the cliff. There are 600 steps to the bottom of the cliff, so it’s not the place for a quick surf but guaranteed its probably free from crowds.
