If you’re looking for a break from city life or to discover the lesser known side of Bali, The Longhouse is a serene destination away from the tourist traps of Bali. Less than three hours’ flight from Singapore, The Longhouse blends harmoniously with the lush tropical forests and hills of Jimbaran, making it a truly idyllic escape with uninterrupted island views.
The expansive property, built in 2009, completed an extensive renovation in December last year, to provide the intimacy of luxury villa accommodation with authentic Balinese hospitality. The owners have meticulously curated The Longhouse and its decor with the help of renowned architect Popo Danes to reflect their love of the island.

Choose from the six expansive en-suite bedroom suites, all distinctively designed to represent individual Indonesian islands — each one with its own character and local arts handpicked by the owners from their extensive travels across the region. No two suites are the same, providing an entirely unique boutique hotel experience. The Bali Suite strikes the perfect balance between rustic charm and modern vibes, while the Sumatra Suite draws you into the forest with warm wood and tropical green.

A holistic experience
Activities at The Longhouse provide an immersion into Bali life. Kickstart your day with a rejuvenating, expert-led yoga session or a calming meditation session at the tranquil hilltop bale.
For those who are looking to relieve tension from your mind and body, The Longhouse has its own spa that provides a selection of relaxing spa treatments for you to choose. From Balinese to hot stone massages and foot reflexology, skilled therapists can be booked to give tailor-made treatments in The Longhouse spa. The spa menu also includes manicures, pedicures and body scrubs.

In addition, you can also experience local traditions without having to step out of the property. A variety of unique cultural activities are available, including an enlightening water purification ceremony, a lesson into how to make and pray with Canang, the traditional Balinese floral offerings, or Indonesian cooking classes. For those who would like to venture out, unique day trips can be
organised where you will get to experience a local tea or dance experience at a traditional Balinese home.
Offering amenities and facilities beyond that of any luxury villa, unwind in a home theatre with a selection of movies, relax at the infinity pool with open air lounge, and enjoy sunset cocktails at the bar. Private hideaway spots are available in the many cosy corners of The Longhouse, with a selection of books available for you to get lost in with a coconut in hand.

Even dining is a surprise
We like how there isn’t a fixed menu at The Longhouse — the menus change daily so you won’t get bored with the selection! With a strong focus on fresh produce, The Longhouse’s skilled kitchen team can prepare signature homemade Indonesian recipes, or Western and fusion dishes. You can
choose to dine in your suites or join the daily meals in The Longhouse dining room. In the evenings, interesting alternatives from garden barbecues to candlelit banquets are available.
With The Longhouse’s dedicated and professional team on hand throughout the day, you’ll love the bespoke services provided for you to enjoy the luxuries of five-star hospitality, service and dining!
Venturing outside the hotel
Located in a quaint little fishing village, The Longhouse is just a short 15 minute ride away from the pristine white beaches that Bali is known for. Surfers will love the surf spots and reef breaks at Suluban Beach and Dreamland Beach, while the Kedonganan fish market is the biggest fresh seafood market in Bali – who knows you might even stumble upon a rare catch like the elusive mahi mahi! To immerse yourself fully in the Indonesian culture, you can also visit the Uluwatu Temple or the Bali Nusa Dua Theatre.
