Pandawa Cliff Estate - View from the cliff

Pandawa Beach Experience

The Locale

Peacefully and privately situated at the end of a winding country lane on Bali’s southernmost tip, Pandawa Cliff Estate is a hidden paradise overlooking the Indian Ocean from its enchanting cliff-top setting.

Apart from a handful of other luxury villas sprinkling the top of the cliff, and the beach huts and local cafés bordering the white sands of Pandawa Beach far below (named after the five warrior brothers of the Mahabharata epic, whose white stone statues are carved into niches along the road leading down to the beach), there is little development in this unspoiled corner of Bali.  But despite it’s tranquil, rural setting, Pandawa Cliff Estate is less than 30 minutes’ drive from Bali’s international airport, and within easy reach of several glorious surf beaches, the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, and the many restaurants and beach bars of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.

Things To Do

Your villa manager, will have a wealth of information about places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the area too. Most will live nearby and can give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life.

In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of Pandawa Cliff Estate.

Until recently, the white sands and warm, protected waters of Pandawa Beach were visited only by locals and seaweed farmers. A paved (toll) road cut through the cliff has recently made this beautiful beach, which lies immediately below the estate, much more accessible.

>

Among other local beaches is the famous surf beach at Uluwatu. Not quite as spectacular but equally alluring are the beaches of Bingin and Padang Padang. Beautiful white sand bays with rock pools and a host of local cafes.

At Jenggala Keramic in Jimbaran, visitors can browse and buy from a vast range of handcrafted ceramics and glassware. Jenggala also runs ‘Make and Paint a Pot’ sessions where ‘Children’ of all ages are encouraged to get creative.

>

For golf enthusiasts, the New Kuta Golf Club (11km) features an 18-hole course overlooking the ocean.

Both five star and local restaurants are plentiful and close by. Bulgari and Ayana resorts are among the favourites and the Rock Bar at Ayana is a must-see for sunset cocktails. Finns at Semara has a beach club for more casual dining.

>

seafood feast at Jimbaran is a must for every holiday in Bali – dozens of seafood warung (cafés) line this west-facing beach, perfect for a sunset dinner.Fine dining options are available at most of the big resort hotels in this area; notably PJ’s, the charming beachside restaurant at the Four Seasons in Jimbaran, serving Mediterranean-styled cuisine. And Balique on Jalan Uluwatu in Jimbaran, is a delightful vintedge restaurant serving great food and cool cocktails.

Nusa Dua’s Bali Collection mall has a host of local boutiques and a department store. Heading towards Kuta (about 40 minutes) brings you to Galleria shopping mall while nearby Tuban has Discovery Mall and streets lined with local shops. Seminyak boutiques are about an hour away.

>

Uluwatu’s cliff-top temple is well worth a visit. Home to mischievous monkeys which are considered sacred in Bali, Pura Luhur Uluwatu is one of the island’s most important temples. Get there in good time for Sunset to watch the enthralling Kecak Ramayana & Fire Dance.

Learn to surf or stand up paddle at Jimbaran Bay, a great place for beginners. Rip Curl School of Surf offers day courses and provides all the equipment.

The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.

Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.

“The Villa is big and beautiful as per the website, we were there for 4 days and happy being pampered by the helpful staff, especially Ms. Yanik and the Chef. The facilities and rooms are very well maintained the only set back is that it should have an outdoor Jacuzzi probably next to the infinity pool. We thank the owner and staff for obliging to few of our request prior to check-in. Overall this is a luxurious, well kept, nice view villa, a good place to have bonding with families and friends.”

“We're staying at the estate from May.25-27.2014, from the time we're arriving at Bali airport the estate driver who pickup us already gave good impression by preparing for us cold towel and mineral water inside the car. At the time we are arriving at the villas estate around late evening, the manager (Diego) already standby in front of the villas and gave us warm welcome and help us himself to carry our bags to villa living room. There are 6 rooms inside the villa, the best bedroom is the most front on the left wing side which having 180 degree of ocean view right from your bed ! spectacular ! The other 5 rooms also very goods in terms of amenities and facilities, however, the bedrooms on the right wing side not so good in terms of ocean view, because block by the tree. Living room and dining room also very spacious. Swimming pool not too big, however, it's an infinity edge pool, impressive ! In overall, we're very satisfy during our stay at this villa, we will recommend our friends to stay at this villa in the future. ”

“We spent 6 heavenly days at The Pala earlier this month [May], and floated back to Hong Kong afterwards. What a fantastic villa, team and location. With great memories of seafood BBQs, scooter rides to the surf beaches, foot massages overlooking the ocean, and THAT infinity pool: this looks set to become an annual trip. We can't rave about it enough. ”
