Looking through a copy of Tropical Living Magazine ( the magazine of Tropical Homes) I read an article on the new villas at the Ritz Carlton. The article says, 'Invisible technology, state-of-the-art communications, untra-modern entertainment concepts and contemporary interior designs and landscapes are part of the new generation of luxurious villas at The Ritz Carlton Bali, Resort and Spa's magnificent six hectare multi-faceted development.'
The 38 new villas are placed along the cliffs overlooking Jimbaran Bay. Reading the list of people and companies that have contributed to this project it's pretty impressive. A Newport Beach California firm is responsible for the design of the villas, which incorporates Japanese-like elements with Balinese accents. The polished timber panels, brushed metallic fittings, sandstone carvings and slate tiling, create spacious elegance.
Design Woodhead of Thailand did the interior design, M&N Environmental Planning Institute Company from Tokyo and St. Legere Design from Hong Kong, landscaping. Koji Takeda from Tokyo designed the restaurant and bar. Speaking of bar, the Martini Club & Bar looks like something out of a modern day James Bond movie.
The Martini Club has an illuminated bar just like Liquid in Seminyak. The place definitely creates that 'cool as Bond' atmosphere and the head bartender is a famous Martini maker. Some of the specialist Martinis he has lined up are, a Lemongrass Martini, a Nutty-Tini and a 007.
The Martini Club makes a great place for evening drinks with its panoramic views of the ocean. The Ritz Carlton Villas are perfect for couples wishing to celebrate a special occasion in perfect luxury.
