Discover the exotic charm of the Bulgari Resort in Bali,
A luxury resort in one of the most exclusive and beautiful destinations in the world!

Once the hunting grounds of the Balinese royal family, the Bukit peninsula in southern Bali is now home to the Bulgari Resort.  Located in one of the most exclusive destinations in the world, a veritable emblem of the tropical exoticism of the Orient, combining the breathtaking beauty of unspoiled nature with a sophisticated contemporary design born from the encounter between traditional Balinese forms and high Italian style. The quality of the services along with the views of the Indian Ocean offered by its magnificent position 150 meters over the sea are the perfect introduction to the second luxury property from Bulgari Hotels & Resorts. 

Villas: The Resort consists of 59 villas with ocean views, and together they represent a contemporary interpretation of a synthesis of Italian design and traditional Balinese style. Designed by the architectural studio of Antonio Citterio and Partners, the interior walls are made of hand-cut volcanic stone and palimanan, while the window and door frames feature the sophisticated nuances of bangkiray, a Javanese mahogany. The refined fabrics that adorn the rooms are designed and woven locally in collaboration with a team of Balinese artists and designers.

Il Ristorante is awarded as BEST HOTEL RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD by International Food & Beverage Forum and BEST TOP 10 GREAT HOTEL RESTAURANT 2011 by Villeroy & Boch Award. Situated next to a water feature ornamental lake, featuring an open-air bale style structure and pays homage to traditional Italian cuisine in an elegantly suggestive atmosphere suffused with soft light. Open in the evening only, with seating only for 36 guests, Chef Maurizio Bombini brings creative reinterpretations of classic dishes of the Italian tradition to the table, where quality ingredients imported from Italy are combined perfectly with local organic produce. The wine list features an excellent selection of the most prized Italian wines.

Sangkar Restaurant With its extraordinary position at the edge of a cliff and its elegant yet informal atmosphere, distinguished by a magnificently illuminated ceiling and traditional woven lamps, the Sangkar Restaurant offers a menu of international specialties, creatively combining typical Indonesian dishes with contemporary culinary techniques. Throughout the day, guests can enjoy dishes such as tamarind chicken breast or bamboo shoot and vegetable curry with turmeric-scented rice.

Spa: A luxurious treatment administered by a team of four therapists, including deep massage with exotic oils and herbs, and the placement of warm volcanic stones on the chakras, the body’s seven energy centers, providing total relaxation and a soothing anti-stress effect. Warm stones used in combination with aromatic oils to rehydrate the skin: the Spa’s menu is designed to offer a series of complete treatments that integrate Asian and European approaches: the ayurvedic Balinese ritual, facial treatments, body wraps and massages, all at the ocean’s edge.

Destination Weddings: The Bulgari Resort in Bali becomes a special location for exclusive wedding ceremonies distinguished by Bulgari style. Four types of ceremonies are available: The Water Wedding, The Beach Wedding, The Gazebo Wedding and The Pavilion Wedding. Each includes flower arrangements by a famous floral designer, champagne for the toast and an elegant case for the marriage certificate. A wedding planner tends to every detail to make the experience perfect and unforgettable.

Bali the Destination - Bali is a land of lush forests, tropical climate, and pristine beaches touched by the warm Indian Ocean. Volcanoes tower over the island landscape, rising above clouds and rice fields to form intricate patterns on the hillsides. The Bulgari Resort Bali  is just a drive away from the Ubud Art Village, a prominent centre for fine arts, dance and music that allures art collectors. For a more spiritual experience, journey to the Pura Besakih Temple, the largest of the island's 11,000 Hindu temples.
