    Balinese daydreaming meets Scandinavian rigour and style at this luxury resort on a secluded hilltop with views that are beyond amazing.

If you come with family, consider the two-bedroom villa with a private pool, and indulge in the spa and private gym. At night, non-residents can mix with guests at the fine-dining (and drinking) Jungle Fish Restaurant.
