The second property in the Bulgari Hotels collection is an Italianate icon perched on the cliffs of Uluwatu, a region at the southern tip of the Bukit peninsula. While the hotel’s vibe stays true to Bulgari’s Italian roots, such Indonesian materials as hand-hewn volcanic rock, Javanese mahogany, and exclusive fabrics banded and bordered by local artisans reflect the heritage of the archipelago. The Asian-European duality is a prominent theme here: One restaurant focuses on Indonesian fare, while the other is a formal reflection of Italian culture. There are two on-site shops as well, each with its own personality. Watching over the resort at its highest point sits a traditional temple guardian—the Hindu elephant Ganesh—and the resort's temple, which employees use to perform daily rituals. And at Bulgari’s base is a private stretch of sand, accessible via an inclined elevator.
Added in 2014, five Bulgari Mansions come with two, three, or five bedrooms plus gardens, sundecks, gazebos, and swimming pools inspired by rice paddies. In 2015, a Bulgari-branded chapel debuts. Combined with the Bulgari Villa, it promises to fulfill wedding and honeymoon dreams.
