Designed by renowned Balinese architect Popo Danes, The Longhouse clings dramatically to a hilltop in Jimbaran, with panoramic views stretching over the south coast of Bali. The inspired design integrates the contours of the land, resulting in an atmospheric three-storey labyrinth of tropical gardens, open-plan living spaces and lush atriums. Combining contemporary luxury with plenty of Asian flavour, the villa has been lovingly decorated by the owners, with an eclectic assortment of antiques and textiles gathered during their extensive travels across the Indonesian archipelago.> View more information
