Sometime we just need to spend a quiet, long holiday with closest family and relatives. As Eid Mubarak is getting closer and closer, what would be the perfect place to reflect on the passing Holy Ramadan in tranquility and welcome a brand new, pure self?
Bali would sound nice, but ain't it will be too crowded of a place? Worry not, HighEnd finds you a safe, hidden haven to stay without having to feel much too isolated for the Sacred Day: Hidden Hills Villas. Nestled on the hilltop of Pecatu, only 20 minutes away from the International Ngurah Rai Airport and steps away from Uluwatu Temple, the property allows guests to ravel in the unrivalled privacy of its six luxury villas. The five different themes applied to the villas are Balinese Modern, Balinese Traditional, Moroccan, Mediterranean, and Chinese; each of which has its own character and soul. Each villa features a large private pool, garden and living room, personalized butler service, en-suite bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas.
If Santorini of Greece has long tickled your fancy, Hidden Hills Villas provide a one-bedroom Santorini-inspired villa complete with white-washed interior and blue accents. To top it off, guests can loll on the pillows while taking in the expansive view of the Indian Ocean outside of the glass walls. Another option is to bask in the Morrocan vibe at the Villa Marrakesh. Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with Balinese ethnic patterned pillows and throws make for a unique combination of the West and the East. This villa offers a 90-degree angled garden that overlooks the ocean, perfect for a romantic sunset dinner. For couples seeking a cliff-side wedding, an open space in front of Villa Marrakesh affords a beautiful setting to exchange vows, catering for up to 40 guests who can enjoy majestic ocean views.
For a more Balinese flair, Villa Sekapa features décor that pays homage to the Balinese craftsmanship with its use of its intricate timber wood and carvings. This two-bedroom villa also boasts panoramic 180-degree ocean views. Another two-bedroom type is Villa Sanya, whose name is taken from the southernmost city in Hainan, China. Its shades of vibrant red creates a balance with the greenery outside, while the added water feature in the common living area and the sound of flowing water bring calming and positive energy according to Feng Shui.
Last but not least, there is Joglo, the Jacuzzi Villa with studio bedroom which reflects Javanese society and tradition. Not only is a bedroom, the Joglo also serves as a yoga pavilion and spa sanctuary with internationally trained therapists ready to pamper guests with Hidden Hills Villas' signature body massage, facials, exfoliation treatments, and more.
