The Royal Santrian, Luxury Beach Villas
Beside the postcard-worthy shores of Tanjung Benoa, this hotel is the epitome of beachfront luxury in southern Bali. Secluded in more than two acres of exotic gardens, it's an intimate all-pool villa escape which perfectly marries gorgeous beachside comfort with Indian Ocean views. Spend the day on the beach, take some time to flop by the pool, and relieve the stresses of everyday life with an indulgent session at the Royal Spa. If you'd like to get a feel for the local culture, join a cooking class or explore with a guided tour of the area.
When lunch comes calling, the Allspice Restaurant is a complete beachside haven, with a deliciously varied menu and equally sumptuous ocean views. Outside, the Allspice Ocean Terrace offers cushioned lounge chairs and umbrellas that provide the best in all-day relaxation. For something a little different, there's an authentic teppanyaki and sushi bar that's open for lunch and dinner, while next to the pool, the stylish Martini Bar delivers knock-out cocktails, refreshing wines and more than 100 different martini recipes for you to try.
There are just 20 villas at the resort, each one elegantly furnished with a private pool and dining area. Home to state-of-the-art facilities, expect to be spoilt with generous bathrooms and private poolside daybeds. Inside, luxury touches include a complimentary minibar and daily fruit basket. Deluxe Villas offer superior levels of comfort with a dressing room, terrace and private garden, but for the utmost in five-star luxury, upgrade to a Royal Villa to make the most of a Jacuzzi, open-air bathroom and premium ocean views.
