Noku beachfront estate, Bali

Noku Beach House is set to disrupt the status quo of ultra luxe villas and the design lists dedicated to them globally. The extraordinary multi faceted six-bedroom ocean front villa has a private spa, waterfront pool and a tennis court. Noku is opulent six star luxury for the new jet set where dialing ‘four’ for room service is unwarranted.

All 24/7 whims are met by the unrivalled corps of staff trained in the art of high service by leading villa management and marketing organization Elite Havens, which was selected exclusively to handle the property. In fact, Elite Havens secured award-winning designer Alex Zabotto-Bentley to bring to life this important refurbishment that is integral to the famous landscape of Seminyak beach.

Zabotto-Bentley has taken a Seminyak shell and created arguably Bali’s hottest new villa … make that estate. Moroccan flourishes are set into a contemporary Zen domain. The house is to be the first villa in the Noku brand, which will span the globe starting with Bali.

Noku has a curated colour palette of light turquoise and blue and is apparent from the woven deck chairs, love swings through to soft furnishings. Even the portable roll-out tennis court – which is a full-size court – is in camouflage colours of blue on blue with a drizzle of grey. This is the Noku colour scheme that will be used in each new property as they blossom.

The massive swinging entrance door of Noku Beach House is ancient teak carved with geometric patterns that breeze throughout the house – check the master bedroom wall and drinks coasters for the repetition of the design. A sleek pond and a jigsaw like sculptural wall of moveable pieces of polished teak reminiscent of Buddhist spinning prayer wheel walls border the minimalist entry hall. It offers a tantalizing peak into the spa room and oasis pool.

The spa is no ordinary massage destination but a full service retreat where serious facials, IV nutrition through to Botox and fillers can be booked. It is designed based on the riad’s of Marrakesh with a central tiled pool in Noku colours, hanging gardens and walls dotted with Moorish alcoves. At night a movie screen drops across the spa window and sets the scene for a movie night.

Noku’s immense living spaces are oriented towards the sea, which acts as the final frontier of the estate. Six contemporary and elegant bedrooms with beautiful bathrooms are on the top floor and have every luxury from marshmallow towels to cloud-like bed. Balconies embrace the views – water or kitchen gardens. In fact, the bathrooms have been herringbone tiled with tens of thousands of tiny finger tiles that are white in the master bedrooms and become progressively darker in the rear rooms creating a lush and leafy Ubud ambience. Toiletries are bespoke and a zero plastic policy has Noku water in glass bottles. Kimonos, headscarves and sarongs are of a unique Noku batik design.

A private bridal suite is set back from the bedrooms and has a private terrace and direct access to stairs to a long rooftop garden, which makes a perfect space for nuptials overlooking the ocean.

The Noku élan includes a smack down Void sound system, a private radio station spinning curated tunes from the some of the world’s most celebrated DJ’s. The wine room is well stocked and the staff fabulously trained. The two kitchens are verging on commercial and will deliver cocktails at 2am or a health tonic at 6am. Gluten free, keto, vegan, paleo and haute cuisine are all catered for.

Noku Beach House can stage events from ten to more than 200 people ensuring it will be a sensation when it comes to fun in the sun for the awesome and affluent.
