Island hopping to Nusa Lembongan? Stay here: our new fave oceanfront villa on the powder-white magnificence of Sandy Bay Beach.
Have you ever been somewhere where the photos you take and words you use simply don’t do the sheer magnificence justice? Well, The Beach Shack on Nusa Lembongan is one of those places – a beach-chic, oceanfront beauty that’s shot right to the top of our fave villa lists. Here’s why.
Though The Beach Shack today is available to rent as a paradise escape, it was once the family home of its owner and decorator. This means that there’s no cookie-cutter fit-outs or tacky trinkets here, only very personalised and unique decor that makes you feel right at home – if your home was a three-bedroom luxury villa on Nusa Lembongan’s most sought-after bay, of course…
Sitting in prime position on Sandy Bay Beach (with private and direct access to the gorgeous Sandy Bay Beach Club and Glo Spa, no less) the villa fronts powder white sands, crashing waves and an exclusive cove that’s almost totally uninhabited except for the luxury villas that dot the shoreline.
Step inside this expansive, tropical getaway via the two large, shabby-chic front doors and the breezy, open-plan three-bedroomed home reveals a seemingly never-ending and glittering infinity pool that stretches out to the aquamarine ocean out yonder. To the left, a cosy, cushion-filled living area beckons, shaped by two hanging egg-chairs that just so happen to be the perfect spot for a sunset cocktail.
Talking of sundowners, there’s also a horseshoe beachfront lounge that teeters on the ocean’s edge (your toes literally touch the sand), a cosy bale on the lush, manicured lawn, an enormous dining table with a built-in barbecue for some evening entertainment, and just so you can enjoy all of this to the absolute fullest, there’s also a wonderful a team of friendly villa staff (Kadek we’re looking at you!) who are on hand to look after your every whim and desire, including daily complimentary breakfasts, and dinner and cocktails direct from Sandy Bay Beach Club next door.
Ultimate Villa Crush? You betcha.
