Things To Do

The Sohamsa Ocean Estate gives guests the best of both worlds location-wise – a private Bali cliff-top setting yet with a great choice of activities within half an hour’s drive or less.  Our villa manager will have a wealth of information about places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required.  Do also ask the staff about the area too; most will live nearby and can give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life.  For now, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of Sohamsa Ocean Estate.

  • Until recently, the white sands and warm, protected waters of Pandawa Beach were visited only by locals and seaweed farmers.  A paved (toll) road cut through the cliff has recently made this beautiful beach, which lies immediately below the estate, much more accessible.
  • Among other local beaches is the famous surf beach at Uluwatu.  Not quite as spectacular but equally alluring are the beaches of Bingin and Padang Padang.  Beautiful white sand bays with rock pools and a host of local cafés.
  • Soar above the spectacular southern coastline of the Bukit Peninsula on a Paraglider.  Paragliding courses and solo flying for the experienced are available as well as tandem flights in the safe hands of experienced instructors.  The training centre is at Timbis Beach on the south coast of the Bukit.
  • Perched on a cliff 70m above the roaring Indian ocean, Uluwatu Temple (Pura Uluwatu) is one of Bali’s nine key directional temples.  Facing west and with steep headlands on either side creating an unbelievably dramatic setting.  Get there in good time for Sunset to watch the enthralling Kecak Ramayana & Fire Dance.
  • At Jenggala Keramic in Jimbaran, visitors can browse and buy from a vast range of handcrafted ceramics and glassware. Jenggala also runs ‘Make and Paint a Pot’ sessions where ‘Children’ of all ages are encouraged to get creative.
  • For golf enthusiasts, the New Kuta Golf Club (11km) features an 18-hole course overlooking the ocean.  Further afield (40km) is the world-renowned Nirwana Bali Golf Course at Tanah Lot.
  • Both five star and local restaurants are plentiful and close by.  Bulgari and Ayana resorts are among the favourites and the Rock Bar at Ayana is a must-see for sunset cocktails.  Finns at Semara has a beach club for more casual dining.
  • A seafood feast at Jimbaran is a must for every holiday in Bali – dozens of seafood warung (cafés) line this west-facing beach, perfect for a sunset dinner.  Fine dining options are available at most of the big resort hotels in this area; notably PJ’s, the charming beachside restaurant at the Four Seasons in Jimbaran, serving Mediterranean-styled cuisine.  And Balique on Jalan Uluwatu in Jimbaran is a delightful vintage restaurant serving great food and cool cocktails.
  • Nusa Dua’s Bali Collection mall has a host of local boutiques and a department store.  Heading towards Kuta (about 40 minutes) brings you to Galleria shopping mall while nearby Tuban has Discovery Mall and streets lined with local shops.  Seminyak boutiques are about an hour away.
  • Learn to surf or stand up paddle at Jimbaran Bay, a great place for beginners.  Rip Curl School of Surf offers day courses and provides all the equipment.

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 kilometres 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.

Sohamsa Ocean Estate – Pandawa Beach villas, Bali Elite Havens

Welcome to Sohamsa Ocean Estate – two glorious villas perched on the cliff-top on the edge of the Bukit peninsula in the southernmost part of Bali.  Here, our guests enjoy one of the most magnificent vistas on the entire island – a view enjoyed from practically every room in both the five-bedroom Villa Soham and four-bedroom Villa Hamsa.

Award-winning Singapore architect Ernesto Bedmar created the stunning contemporary buildings, using Indonesia’s abundant natural materials in soaring recycled ironwood pillars, Merbau-wood pavilion roofs, and walls of riverstone and Palimanan stone.  Within the elegant interiors, brightened with an au courant palette of cool grey and white, are inspired design flourishes:  signature walls of Bengkirai-wood blocks that bring sparks of light into both living pavilions; headboard panelling made of lacquered rice sacks in all the bedrooms; and over-sized resin-candle pendant lights suspended above Italian Statuario marble-topped dining tables.

The soul of these stunning cliff-top villas is the professionally trained staff team led by the highly experienced villa manager Pak Adhi – together dedicated to treating each guest as celebrity-special.  At their heart is the accomplished chef, whose spectacular dishes mirror the inventiveness and elan of the setting in which they’re served.

Whether the villas are booked separately, or together for as many as 22, Sohamsa Ocean Estate offers the level of facilities and service that entice families and friends to stay put and enjoy every aspect.  But with a chauffeured car at the ready, guests can be whisked away to the white-sand Pandawa Beach in minutes, and Bali’s best loved surf breaks, sea temples and seafood restaurants are within a half hour’s drive.

The Singapore owners chose a Sanskrit phrase for the estate name; ‘Soham’ – and its inversion ‘ham-sa’ (translating as ‘I am he’) references oneness with the universe and the presence of divinity in each soul.  It’s an apt name as this beautiful setting is sure to inspire awe and contemplation on the beauty and richness of life.
