Sohamsa Ocean Estate
High above the Indian Ocean on the southernmost tip of Bali’s Bukit peninsula lies Sohamsa Ocean Estate – two magnificent clifftop villas offering spectacular views, stunning living space, a total of nine spacious bedrooms.
Poised on a clifftop commanding stupendous views of the ocean, Sohamsa Ocean Estate comprises the five-bedroom Villa Soham and four-bedroom Villa Hamsa. The villas are set in an exclusive enclave on the southernmost part of the Bukit peninsula – a still-unspoiled slice of Bali that’s only half an hour from the airport and close to some of the island’s best-known attractions – the iconic Uluwatu sea temple, for example, the seafood restaurants of Jimbaran Bay, and some world-famous surf breaks.
Sohamsa Ocean Estate owes its name to a Sanskrit mantra: ‘Soham’ – and its inversion ‘ham-sa’ (translating as ‘I am he’) – suggests oneness with the universe. It’s an inspired name, as the villas’ magical setting sparks mindfulness and an appreciation of nature’s bounty. Within both beautifully designed villas are abundant living and dining spaces (both formal and casual, air-conditioned and alfresco), generous air-conditioned bedrooms and bathrooms, large infinity pools, and well-equipped gyms and massage rooms.
After a hearty breakfast served on the dining terrace, spend your morning pushing weights in the gym, working up a sweat in the sauna and cooling off with a few laps in the pool. After a morning of activity, you’ll deserve a leisurely lunch in the poolside pavilion, and a siesta on the deck followed by a massage. Take your chauffeured car to Pandawa Beach for an afternoon swim or kayak, then sink into a deep relaxing bath with breathtaking ocean views, before adjourning to the pool pavilion for sunset cocktails and a seafood barbecue prepared by the highly accomplished chef – part of a team of staff dedicated to making your time at Sohamsa really special.

Sohamsa Ocean Estate lies at the edge of the Bukit peninsula, a limestone plateau on the delightfully unspoiled southernmost tip of Bali. It rests within an exclusive enclave of luxury villas that line the cliff high above the Indian Ocean – seemingly miles away from the island’s busiest tourist districts yet just half an hour from the airport. While there is little within walking distance in this dramatic rural setting, just two kilometers away is Pandawa Beach with its stretch of white sand, local cafes and sea sports. Hidden beach coves and famed surf breaks are within easy reach, as is the sacred sea temple of Uluwatu, some very cool beach clubs and the restaurants of Jimbaran Bay and Nusa Dua.
