Sohamsa Estate - Weddings


With its breath-taking cliff-top location and magnificent ocean vista, the Sohamsa Ocean Estate provides a magical setting for the perfect tropical wedding. Exchange vows on the deck with the expanse of sea as the backdrop, enjoy a candlelit dinner on the manicured lawn under a canopy of stars, and then take to the dance floor in the open-sided cliff-edge pavilion serenaded by the surf far below.

Sohamsa fuses intimacy and grandeur to create exclusive family weddings for up to 18 guests staying in luxury on site. The estate can also host larger wedding parties – for up to 60 guests for cocktails and as many as 40 for seated dinners.

We are happy to recommend expert event organisers, florists, decorators and caterers so the wedding party can kick off their heels and concentrate on enjoying the celebrations. For information on hosting a wedding at Sohamsa Ocean Estate, contact us on [email protected]

Corporate Retreats

The Sohamsa Ocean Estate provides an impressive venue for memorable corporate getaways, executive retreats, boardroom meetings, team-building gatherings and incentive trips that go way beyond the ordinary. There’s no better way to boost creative thinking and reward business performance among directors, sales leaders and out-of-the-box strategists than in this remarkably private five-star villa estate worlds away from the constant interruptions of the office environment.

Imagine uninterrupted ocean views from your air-conditioned meeting room; coffee breaks in the cliff-edge pavilion refreshed by the salty sea breeze; convivial conversation with work colleagues over a gourmet meal on the ocean deck. Away from the boardroom, discover team synergy and fresh perspectives on business challenges in the pool, gym, sauna, spa, or on the nearby golf course.

Offering companies a compelling alternative to the more pedestrian five-star hotels, the estate provides complete privacy and exclusivity, luxury facilities, and personalised service provided round-the-clock by an attentive team of butlers, housekeepers, security – and an accomplished chef.

The Sohamsa Ocean Estate can accommodate up to 22 delegates in nine luxury bedrooms spread across two inter-connected villas. Work facilities include air-conditioned meeting room with projector, break-out spaces and social areas scattered through the grounds, and high speed wi-fi, reliable cell phone coverage and land lines. A personal chef is on hand to prepare delicious lunches and dinners, and provide free-flow tea and coffee during the day. With notice, our concierge service can arrange team-building activities and motivational speakers.

Wellness Retreats

Planning a yoga, health and wellness retreat? Seeking a tropical island sojourn that is truly transformational?

Mindfulness and self-reflection come easy in this stellar cliff-top sanctuary on the southernmost tip of Bali. Take a yoga class on the ironwood deck or elevated terrace. Detox in the sauna and steam room. Receive a nurturing massage in the villa spa. Savour nourishing, healthy meals prepared by the villa chef.

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 18, 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 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.
