The Long House Villa, Jimbaran

Elegantly perched in the hills of Jimbaran, The Longhouse is a boutique luxury villa-hotel, which fuses its stunning setting with impeccable attention to detail to create an idyllic escape. Inspired by their extensive travels through the Indonesian archipelago, the owners have meticulously curated The Longhouse and its decor with the help of renowned architect Popo Danes to reflect their love of the island.

Descriptions

The Longhouse boasts just six exclusive bedroom suites with breathtaking views over the treetops of Jimbaran. Each suite is named after an Indonesian island, celebrating the beauty and diversity of the country with unique interior designs and collection of Indonesian arts.
