Elegantly perched in the hills of Jimbaran, The Longhouse is a boutique luxury villa-hotel, which fuses its stunning setting with impeccable attention to detail to create an idyllic escape. Inspired by their extensive travels through the Indonesian archipelago, the owners have meticulously curated The Longhouse and its decor with the help of renowned architect Popo Danes to reflect their love of the island. The Longhouse boasts just six exclusive bedroom suites with breathtaking views over the treetops of Jimbaran. Each suite is named after an Indonesian island, celebrating the beauty and diversity of the country with unique interior designs and collection of Indonesian arts. Guests have the option to reserve individual rooms or the entire property. The Longhouse lends itself equally to romantic getaways or larger group holidays and wedding parties. The Longhouse philosophy is authentically Balinese, following the beliefs of Tri Hita Karana - the traditional way of life on the island. Literally translated as the ‘three causes of well- being’, The Longhouse team practices these three guiding principles - harmony amongst people, with nature and with God. Daily offerings are made by the staff and every 210 days, guests are invited to join in the Odelan ceremony in the villa. Hidden away in the hills of Jimbaran, the stunning boutique property boasts a number of luxurious in-house facilities for guests of all ages. From a Yoga Pavilion for private or group sessions to an in-house spa and gym for those wanting to detox, a children’s play area and a media room furnished with a library of books and magazines. The experienced team of 14 dedicated staff are on hand to cater to all guest needs – from hosting exquisite sunset feasts and lessons on the art of Canang Basket or to making guided trips to Bali’s hidden gems. Just 20 minutes from the international airport and once just a small fishing village, Jimbaran offers an immersion into the deep roots of Bali life, away from the tourist hot spots. Located on the southernmost point of the island, the area is known for its breathtaking cliffside views, peaceful beaches, secluded coves and verdant tropical forests. Still very attached to many cultural traditions, the temple in front of Jimbaran market is a center for regular celebrations. Situated on one of the area’s iconic rolling hilltops, The Longhouse boasts one of the most dramatic views in Jimbaran. A short downhill drive from The Longhouse takes you past the charming roadside restaurants, chic boutique shops and seafood stalls that the area is famed for, before arriving at the white sandy beach and calm waters of Jimbaran Bay. South of The Longhouse, the ruggedly beautiful Bukit Peninsula boasts soaring limestone cliffs which descend to scenic coves pounded by some of the best surf breaks in the world. On check-in, guests are provided with our insider’s guide of “Things to do and see near The Longhouse”.
