Pandawa Cliff Estate - Villa Markisa - The perfect venue

About Villa Markisa

Villa Markisa, the newest of the Pandawa Estate properties, boasts the same spectacular clifftop setting and ocean views as its neighbours, Villa Rose and The Pala. This five-bedroom villa will delight 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 newlyweds. An open-sided living pavilion and a large cliff-edge balé 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 with up to 400 guests. Alone, Villa Markisa can host weddings with 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 your every requirement and two cars with drivers are available, should you wish to explore Bali 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 balé. 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.

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.

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.

    Pandawa Cliff Estate what a tropical dream! The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed everyday. From food, to transportation and suggestions of fun things to do. Your staff had all the information. The cooking class with Chef Wayan and the extra special party was the highlight of my stay. Especially the Karaoke, big thanks to Agung and your staff to arrange for us! Thank you for the amazing and excellent service.

    Thank you Chandra, Tina, Ratna, Agung and all the wonderful staff at Pandawa Cliff Estate. The villa is amazing and the Estate is stunning and such a jewel in this exclusive area. We had an awesome wedding event over 3 areas of the villa and every one of the venues was perfect because of your staffs professionalism, attention to detail, friendly and welcoming smiles. Many times they went out of their way to accommodate our last minute requests. Special mention to Stephan who was assigned to help parents of the groom - Ian. It was an amazing experience that we will remember and will definitely come back to PCE to relive our moments here. A big thank you to all the staff and management.
