Pandawa Cliff Estate - Villa Markisa - Magnificent setting

Villa Markisa

About Villa Markisa

Villa Markisa, the newest of the Pandawa Estate properties, boasts the same spectacular cliff-top setting and ocean views as its neighbours, Villa Rose and The Pala.  This five-bedroomed villa will be especially appreciated by couples and families who enjoy holidaying together, but also treasure having their own private space.  The ocean-view guest pavilion holds a pair of matching two-bedroom units, each with its own living and dining rooms and pool.  Hovering high above the ocean, and tucked below Markisa’s generous lawn, is the splendid one-bedroom master suite, again with its own living room and pool.  It’s hard to imagine a more romantic setting than this – perfect for newly weds.  An open-sided living pavilion and a large cliff-edge bale provide communal living and dining areas.

Villa Markisa has been finished and furnished to the same impeccable standard as the other villas on the Pandawa Cliff Estate and shares a sports centre (with squash and tennis courts), spa and gym with them.  The exclusivity and scale of the estate – which can sleep up to 42 adult guests (plus several children in extra beds) has unsurprisingly made it one of Bali’s most sought-after destination wedding venues.  The large, interconnecting estate grounds, complete with purpose-built facilities, can accommodate weddings for up to 400 guests.  Alone, Villa Markisa can host weddings for up to 100 guests.

A friendly yet discreet team of butlers, housekeepers, gardeners, security and kitchen staff all work diligently under the experienced villa manager to take care of every guest requirement and cars with drivers are on hand for those who wish to explore beyond the villa.

The crystal clear, reef-protected waters and white sands of Pandawa Beach lie immediately below the estate and can be reached via a new road that cuts down through the cliff, while many of Bali’s best surf beaches are also close by.  Only slightly further afield is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, the Bali National Golf Club, some cool beach bars and the many fine-dining and seafood restaurants of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.

Villa Layout

Villa Markisa’s entrance leads to the upper storey of the ocean-facing guest pavilion, with individual access to two mirror-image interconnecting apartments.  Each has a living room and bedroom upstairs, and a second bedroom and dining room downstairs opening onto a private deck and pool.  An open-sided living pavilion faces the carpet of lawn that rolls towards the ocean, edged by a sunbathing deck and, down a slope, a breezy cliff-edge bale.  Hidden away below is the romantic master suite opening onto a cliff-edge garden and pool – with private entrance as well as villa access via the garden.

Floorplan

Living Areas

Indoor living

One of the many attractions of Villa Markisa is the choice of communal and private living areas.

On the upper level of the guest pavilion are two interconnecting air-conditioned living rooms, each with chic designer furniture — comfortably upholstered L-shaped sofa and leather-seated chairs set around a stylish coffee table facing a 43-inch satellite channel TV.  Stairs from both rooms lead down to the dining rooms, each furnished with a glass-topped dining table comfortably seating six and a pair of high stools set before the bar counter separating a small kitchen with fridge.  (There’s a professional kitchen just behind the villa, fitted with everything required to prepare feasts for guests.)  On both levels, the huge doors separating the living and dining areas can be closed off for privacy or retracted for sociable living.

There is also a private living room in the master suite, where a gilded Chinese engagement bed takes centre-stage.  Other amenities here include a dining table for four, a butler’s pantry and guest washroom.

Outdoor living

The social heart of Villa Markisa is the huge open-sided living pavilion that looks out over the vast expanse of lawn separating the guest wing from the cliff-edge master suite.  This is the perfect place for afternoon tea reclining on stylishly over-sized rattan chairs, or for gathering family and friends around the eight-seater dining table for an early evening barbecue.

Making the most of the exceptional ocean view is a pavilion with a glass balcony virtually suspended over a small gorge that cuts into the cliff face.  From here, you can gaze down on Pandawa Beach, see Nusa Penida on a clear day, catch the sunset, or even spot a migrating whale.  Sit back here and enjoy sea-breeze-cooled lunches and leisurely candle-lit dinners accompanied by the soothing sound of the surf far below.

Set on the large ironwood decks that front each of the villa’s three swimming pools are all-weather rattan tables and sun-loungers or love seats.  There is further turquoise-cushioned sea-view seating on a fourth deck that forms the roof of the master suite.

Bedrooms

Master suite

It doesn’t get more romantic than this!  Hidden out of sight from the rest of the villa, the cliff-front master bedroom at Villa Markisa enjoys spectacular views over its private bougainvillea-filled garden towards the ocean sparkling below.  Antique furniture and colourful batiks decorate the room, which has a king-size bed, and seating area facing a 50-inch satellite channel TV.  The marble bathroom is equally spacious, with walk-in dressing area, twin basins, rain shower enclosure and sea-view terrazzo bathtub.  The bedroom opens onto an ironwood deck, where an upholstered loveseat sits before a large free-form swimming pool.

Guest suites

All four air-conditioned guest bedrooms are furnished with split-king beds resting against upholstered batik headboards; each can be set up as a king or twins, giving added flexibility for different guest group configurations.  Each bedroom has a seating area – whether a pair of high-backed Chinese chairs or a leather chaise longue – resting on the marble-edged teakwood floor.  All enjoy enchanting ocean views; the upper-level rooms opening onto a glass-fronted balcony, and the two garden level bedrooms onto the pool decks.

The ensuite bathrooms are equally generous in size, with walk-in wardrobes/dressing areas, twin basins on marble vanities, monsoon shower enclosures, and statement bathtubs.
