About The Pala
Even before stepping into The Pala’s grand foyer you know you have arrived at a special place. The villa’s double-height entrance, beautifully carved in gold, red and sea-green-painted wood and flanked by stone frescoes depicting the fragrant frangipani, is truly magnificent.
The Pala – meaning ‘Nutmeg’ – is Pandawa Cliff Estate’s flagship villa. Commanding unrivalled views over the ocean from its dramatic cliff-top setting, this fabulous six-bedroom property is destined to become one of Bali’s most sought-after villas. Its thoughtful design makes The Pala as suitable for a grand wedding venue as it is for a special family holiday, or even as an extravagant hideaway for a romantic couple.
The splendid master suite looks majestically down over the white sands of Pandawa Beach through walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, while five generous ensuite guest rooms each provide a private sanctuary equipped with top-quality furnishings and facilities. Abundant indoor living space includes an exquisitely decorated upper-floor lounge with ocean-view balcony, a dining room with two dining tables, a spa treatment room, children’s play room and fitness room.
Outside, the villa’s potential as a second-to-none event venue becomes apparent. A wide lawn sweeps from the dining terrace towards the 20-metre infinity-edge swimming pool, to one side of which a ten-seater table is set up below a covered barbecue and bar area, and a stone amphitheatre makes the perfect setting for a traditional Balinese dance performance.
The Pala’s garden links through to that of neighbouring Villa Rose, providing a spectacular cliff-top setting for events of up to 200 guests. The gardens have been purposefully designed with events in mind, providing plentiful washroom facilities and extensive deck and lawn areas.
A large team of professionally trained staff, including a villa manager, skilled chefs, chauffeurs and a veritable army of service, housekeeping and grounds staff, tend to your every need at Pandawa Cliff Estate, while the provision of a private sports centre with full-size tennis court, squash court and well-equipped gym, together with a dedicated spa staffed by trained therapists, means that guests will want for nothing at this superbly self-contained hidden paradise above the ocean on Bali’s beautiful Bukit peninsula.
Pandawa Cliff Estate’s personal chef and his skilled team are at your service to prepare complimentary daily breakfast, as well as snacks, lunch and dinner selections from the villa’s extensive restaurant-style priced menu. From freshly made salads and seafood pasta to traditional Indonesian favourites, succulent steaks, and classics such lobster thermidor, plus a range of sinful but delicious deserts – a mouthwatering choice of dishes are available whenever and wherever you chose.
The chef and his team will also be pleased to prepare meals according to guests’ request and to cater to special diets. To make the most of the kitchen and allow time for grocery shopping, please discuss meal requirements with your villa manager or senior butler in advance.
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
The villas at Pandawa Cliff Estate have been thoughtfully designed with families in mind. In each villa bedrooms are arranged to offer twin- and king-bedded rooms in convenient pairs, and extra kids’ beds and baby cots are readily available. The Pala boasts its own playroom, Villa Rose has a cosy TV lounge tucked behind the dining area, and the open-plan living areas at Villa Marie make a lovely informal family space. The swimming pools at The Pala and Villa Marie also have shallow areas specially designed for little ones, and of course there’s always the white sands and shallow waters of Pandawa Beach, just a couple of kilometres away.
The team of friendly staff at Pandawa Cliff Estate will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Staff will happily prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or head butler and they will take care of the rest. Poolside pancakes for breakfast? Toasties at teatime? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include baby cots, highchairs and booster seats) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday.
Sports Centre and Spa
In addition to The Pala’s private spa room, villa guests have complimentary access to Pandawa Cliff Estate’s first-class, on-site sports centre, with its own squash court, well-equipped gym fitted with top-of-the-range equipment, and a pristine floodlit tennis court that sets the scene for fun holiday tournaments.
Adjacent to the sports centre, is the estate’s opulent ocean-view spa, fitted with three professional massage beds and a sumptuous spa tub. With a few hours’ notice, guests can enjoy an array of deluxe treatments carried out by experienced spa therapists. Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
Weddings & celebrations
With its dramatic and romantic cliff-top setting overlooking the Indian Ocean, its wide lawns, large purpose-built decked garden areas and superb guest facilities, Pandawa Cliff Estate is a dream wedding and event venue.
When all three villas are rented together, the estate offers a total of 16 double bedrooms, and can accommodate up to 32 adults guests, plus numerous extra beds for children. This rare ability makes the estate particularly attractive to those wanting to provide convenient ‘on-site’ accommodation for guests at their wedding or special celebration.
The Pala boasts a unique, stone amphitheatre where guests can be entertained with a traditional dance or musical performance, and its garden links through to that of Villa Rose next door, allowing separate areas for cocktails, dining and dancing for up to 200 guests.
As well as the excellent in-house event facilities at Pandawa Cliff Estate, we can recommend expert event organisers, florists, decorators and caterers so you can focus on relaxing and celebrating with your guests.

Peacefully and privately situated, at the end of a winding country lane on Bali’s southernmost tip, Pandawa Cliff Estate is a hidden paradise overlooking the Indian ocean from its enchanting cliff-top setting.
Apart from a handful of other luxury villas sprinkling the top of the cliff, and the beach huts and local cafes bordering the white sands of Pandawa Beach far below (named after the five warrior brothers of the Mahabharata epic, whose white stone statues are carved into niches along the road leading down to the beach), there is little development in this unspoiled corner of Bali. But despite it’s tranquil, rural setting, Pandawa Cliff Estate is less than 30 minutes’ drive from Bali’s international airport, and within easy reach of several glorious surf beaches, the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, and the many restaurants and beach bars of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.
All villa rates are subject to a 5% service charge and thereafter a 10% government tax.
