Bali Beach Resort
A luxury lifestyle development regenerates and blends into the natural topography to preserve cultural and native landscapes.
Set within 250 acres of undulating Balinese hills, and with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, our proposal intensifies the sense of place by regenerating the land and adding more gardens and habitat on the site. With the aim of creating a legacy project for our client, we offset his incredible investment by enhancing the program and increasing the density to achieve a 1.65-million-square-foot luxury lifestyle development with saleable residences that will pay for the six-star hotel on the property.
Our design is culturally, environmentally, and resource sensitive, paying respect to its location near the sacred Tanah Lot temple. We were inspired by the terraced rice paddy fields common across Bali and that surround the property, to create a development that seemingly “inhabits” a rice paddy. By honoring the sacred ancient farming traditions of Balinese culture, we have disguised the new buildings within the natural topography, minimizing their visual impact on the landscape.
The architecture is modeled on a Balinese village and temple architecture with 80 luxury villas—all with sea views and green roofs, and an assortment of pavilions positioned within the native garden.
The resort is designed to be an unparalleled world-class destination that exemplifies the energy of Bali, including a 20,000-square-foot spa, a state-of-the-art beach club and a new “ultra high-end” golf clubhouse to accompany an existing 18-hole signature golf course.
