You’ll fall in love with our pick of the most unique and luxurious penthouses that are worth every cent. Take a peek!

Isn’t this celeb-worthy suite simply the ideal luxury nest for a very special getaway?
Notice that the arc-shaped pool deck makes the perfect frame for sipping cocktails on lazy afternoon, and we think this is arguably the best feature of the penthouse – COMO Uma Canggu’s latest addition.
The penthouse is designed and furnished to please and excite the most fastidious of you – spacious, bright, with nods to both traditional and modern!
Aside from the usual dining options, the resort features a healthy grab-and-go juice bar- no excuses not to keep up with your New Year’s resolution! Healthy drinks, snacks and salads are all you can find at the Glow Juice Bar.
Experiences at the COMO Uma Canggu are endless. They include surfing classes, golf, tours at nearby attractions but also soothing moments at the resort spa.
And when your vacation stay is one that includes services from a private butler, you know it is one to consider!2. Santorini magic – Morabito Art Cliff (Santorini Loft)
Magic happens when you find a Santorini oasis in Bali, especially when it comes with a private oceanfront jacuzzi on your terrace, where you watch the famed Uluwatu sunset in the horizon over the Indian Ocean.
Both of the two bedrooms have killer views of the ocean, and any spot in and around the penthouse guarantees unobstructed views!

This place really gets us dreaming – every corner is meant to transport you to the Mediterranean. Even the colour palette plays a big role – minimalist décor, fresh white-washed walls with frequent hues of blue, jaw-dropping ocean views from your bed… you’ll almost wonder if you are still in Bali!

Everything at the penthouse is a constant reminder of pure luxury – calming colours and minimalist designs.
And you won’t ever be bored. A typical day can be as relaxing as it can be packed full of activities like surfing – you are residing in Uluwatu after all!

Everything at this one-bedroom penthouse constantly reminds us that we are in Bali – traditional teak furniture blending into the exotic surroundings and hand-carved sculptures inspired by the aesthetic of Balinese temples and its local culture. Only two words fit in – Authentic Bali.
