The Edge Bali
The Edge is one of the luxurious villas at Uluwatu, Bali. We didn't know what the villas looked like until we arrived at The Edge, but we knew that their glass bottom pool was super famous due to their Social Media posts.
A Butler was assigned to each villa, and our Butler, Ian, contacted us before our arrival time to cross-check our flight and transportation details. On the day of our arrival into I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, we were greeted by Ian. He was warm and friendly; we felt at ease at once.
Staying at The Edge will give you unlimited access to use the pool. We woke up super early one morning to enjoy the privacy of having the pool to ourselves. Brendan, the Managing Director, informed us that June and July are the best months to visit Bali. The water will be super calm, and you can see the clouds' reflection on the water.
The pool opens to the public from 12 PM onwards. There's a minimum spending fee depending on the seating spot you choose. The VIP Lounge will require higher minimum spending for food or drinks. When we were there, the minimum expenditure starts from Rp. 400.000 (including towel and Rp. 350.000 for food and beverages).
The Edge has a fabulous restaurant called OneEighty. Andrew and I almost conquered everything in the menu, so we're confident in saying that Chef Nyoman Suasa is really good at mixing his ingredients together. I will do a separate review of OneEighty and showcase more food photos at a later date.
THE MOOD VILLA
Our Villa, The Mood, consists of 2 bedrooms, but since we only used once, Ian locked the other bedroom. It has a spacious living room and dining area. I was in awe when I walked into the Villa, a perfect house for our two nights stay.
There's a natural stone pool inside the Villa and a great balcony with two comfortable sunbeds. Andrew really liked the spot to do some reading.
Our Butler Ian always consulted us on what we wanted to have for breakfast. Breakfast spread was stunning, from a plate of smoked salmon, three different jars of cereals, muffins, bread, fruits, yoghurt, AND the main course that we picked the night before.
The bathroom amenities come from Lanvin with a beautiful orange smell. The Edge also provided a box of salt that we put into our bathtub at night. We found a box of chocolate next to our bedside on our first night, along with a bookmark with pressed petals that our Butler collected from the garden. On the second night, we were provided with a unique eyemask that contained a mixture of tea leaves.
THE EDGE SPA
The Edge Spa is lovely. The whole floor was covered in water which gives a very relaxing feeling as soon as we enter the spa. The staff wore rubber boots to protect their feet. We booked a one hour spa before our breakfast, and we chose the 60 minute "The Edge Massage" from the menu.
The Spa looks really different during the day and at night. During the day, you can see the beautiful cliff of Uluwatu. If during the day it feels bright and airy, at night it gives off a magical and relaxing vibe. I'd recommend you to book a spa experience when you plan to visit or stay at The Edge.
The View Villa
If you have a big group staying at The Edge, there's also a 5-bedroom-villa that you can book. This villa is massive, and it has its own infinity pool, mini cinema and cute children's playroom. Our Butler also showed us the beautiful wine cellar and cigar lounge in one of the rooms.
Not only The Edge provides the opulence experience, but it also provides us with privacy due to its exclusivity. The staff was accommodating, from the Butler, the restaurant staff and even staff at The Spa. Now, the important thing is to book your villa in advance as there are only limited numbers of villa available at The Edge.
