There are few places on earth that are as romantic and steeped in mystical spirituality as Bali. Known to some as The Morning of the World, and to many as The Island of the Gods, it is no small wonder that Bali is still one of the most sought after luxury holiday destination.
Pantai Lima is situated at Pererenan, a largely deserted stretch of beach 25 minutes by car from Bali's sophisticated and cosmopolitan shopping, dining and clubbing, the estate comprises five luxurious beachfront villas.
Pantai Lima is not just another cookie cutter-estate where villas are identical to one another and shoe-horned into a tiny plot of land. Each villa is completely different in design and ambience one from another, and sited in such a way that one is not aware in the slightest of staying in an estate.
The property is spacious, extending over 1.6 hectares, or four acres. That's about the size of two football fields. Individual gardens range from 2250 to 3270 square metres (24,220 to 35,200 square feet) and the villas themselves all exceed 800 square metres of floor area (8,600 square feet).
Each villa has been uniquely created by French designer Gaelle Echene, with considerable personal input from the owners.
The estate is about 25 minutes by car from Seminyak, Bali's centre of sophisticated shopping, dining and nightlife. The world-famous Nirwana Golf Course is just 4 km to the north-west. The international airport is 45 minutes by car.
