Pop Art party pad


Full-frontal Seminyak Beach

More Miami than traditional thatched Balinese hut, Luna 2 Private Hotel is outer-limits oppulent. Owner Melanie Hall teamed up with architect David Wahl to create this five-room retro-radical party pad, replete with Pop Art touches, custom-made furniture and modern design icons by Harry Bertoia and Phillipe Starck. Add to that a poo, sculpture garden beachfront locale and 24-hour staff and you will feel like the high-profile guests that frequent this exclusive hire dream house.

A massage bed on the shared deck beckons for in-house spa sessions. Alternatively, luxuriate in the bathrooms, where vibey quotes about love and life from previous guests are engraved on the walls (pop your own in the guest box, and you may see it writ large next time you visit).

Hotel closed

No check-ins or check-outs are allowed on 28 March 2017, when Bali observes Nyepi Day (Day of Silence), although stays are still possible. Bali’s airport also closes for the day.

At the hotel

Free wireless broadband; flatscreen TVs, DVD players, preloaded iPods, Bose sound system with docks, iPad; library of DVDs, books and magazines; overhead projector for outdoor movie nights; study with Mac computer; children's play room, including board games, computer games, Xbox and PlayStation; two fully equipped kitchens with espresso machine, temperature-controlled wine cellar and humidor.

Our favourite rooms

The green master bedroom is the most spacious, with a private pond-fringed terrace and killer beach views (surfers are so close you'll feel like you're sharing waves). A retro-cute Brionvega TV adds style points, and the ensuite sports black-and-green Bisazza tiles, a drenching Dornbracht rain shower and a Philippe Starck tub with ocean vistas. For more privacy, plump for the purple room, where the bed is backdropped with a 'sexy' mirror.


Take a dip with Marilyn Monroe, whose glam image – recreated in Bisazza mosaic tiles – adorns the bottom of the sleekly linear 20-metre pool, which offers serene sea views. Sunseekers should sprawl on the poolside loungers or lawn; shade-fanciers can recline in the two covered relaxation areas decked out with yellow day-beds and charcoal-grey modular seating. Beachfront access means the ocean is only steps away.

Packing tips

Sporty types should bring togs for horse riding, surfing, mountain-biking, yoga or water Pilates, which staff can arrange. More sedentary guests should pack the three Ss (swimwear, sunscreen and shades).


Three-night minimum stay in low season; five-night in high season. Smoking is allowed in lounge areas, but not bedrooms; pets are not permitted. Guests receive temporary membership to nearby Canggu Club's gym, tennis courts, pool, restaurants and bars.


Kids are easily integrated into life at Luna2 Private Hotel, and will love having their own private play pad.

Best for

All ages will have as big a blast as Mum and Dad.

Recommended rooms

The red room has three single beds, so is ideal for children. Parents should bag the yellow double room, as the two share a bathroom.


Kids can be supervised by the Luna2 babysitter at all times, with babysitting included in rates. The children's play room is well equipped with a TV, toys and board games for all ages, including Xbox and PlayStation for computer game fiends. Books and DVDs for kids are also available.


The hotel is flush to the beach, so swimming and sandy larks are a must (just take advice on the safest spots to avoid Seminyak's sometimes tricky currents or head for a strip where life guards are in evidence). Luna2's staff can arrange surfing or boogie-boarding classes for youngsters or horse-riding on the beach. The pool and garden are also handy distractions, with pool games and soccer, badminton and croquet up for grabs. Older kids and teens might fancy a spot of shopping in Seminyak or backpacker-favourite Kuta Beach a short walk away, or can join in with yoga, fitness or spa sessions. Closer to home, children can enjoy cooking classes with Luna2's chef, learning to make pizza, bread, pastries, doughnuts or desserts. Come nightfall, children's movies can be projected outdoors, with popcorn and treats served up under the stars. Further afield, staff can organise trips to monkey forests and elephant camps, outward bound centres or water parks.

Swimming pool

There's no dedicated children's pool, but Luna2 staff are on hand to watch children swimming in the unfenced main pool at all times and will never leave them unattended.


Food can be honed around children's tastes at all times. Junior gourmets can also throw a cool kids' dinner party, meeting with the chef to discuss matching non-alcoholic drinks and dishes. TV dinners for children and parents in bed or the study are a more mellow option.


There is an in-house babysitter whose services are free any time.

No need to pack

Games or toys, as Luna2 is play heaven. Baby cots are supplied, and other children's kit can be sourced on request.


Additional beds, a bunk bed or extra mattresses can be added to rooms at no extra cost if you have more kids in your posse.

Food and Drink

Photos Luna2 Private Hotel food and drink

Top Table

Dine in an outdoor balé for Indian Ocean views.

Dress Code

Dress up to get down. Ladies, go for Roberto Cavalli kaftans and Liza Bruce bathers with Christian Louboutin wedges. Lads, loose linens will do the trick.

Hotel restaurant

Food and drink is charged as an extra, but Aussie head chef Alanna Agnew's delicious cooking is off the charts, so be sure to indulge. Start the day with house-baked pastries or a feta and potato rosti with house-smoked salmon and soft-poached eggs. The team can whip up lunch or light refreshments during the day, including cookies, scones with cream and organic jam, and chilled granitas. Later on, settle into the 12-seater dining area and choose between six-course degustation menus or relaxed TV dinners, customised to order. Take advantage of the in-house event planning service if you fancy a bespoke dinner at the chef's table or memorable poolside party.

Hotel bar

Luna2's bartenders, all trained mixologists, are on hand to whip up your favourite tipples. Complimentary canapés are served daily at sunset at the sleek white bar or by the pool – the perfect time to sample the lip-smacking signature Lunatini cocktail. There's a savvy selection of wine too, from a quaffable New Zealand sauvignon blanc to a Chateau Petrus to accompany that Cohiba Siglo IV cigar from the humidor. Launch yourself on a course to Luna2 Studiotel's rooftop bar Space Champagne & Caviar for the eponymous tipple and treats in surroundings that pay homage to all things cosmic (there's even a replica NASA spacesuit).

Last orders

All-day dining means you can request breakfast, lunch and dinner times to suit your mood. The bar keeps pouring until the last guest drops.

Room service

Your wish really is the 24-strong staff's command. If you're peckish after dinner, nocturnal snacks include cheese plates, fruit, chocolates and other goodies.

Luna2 Private Hotel
Jalan Sarinade 22


Fly into Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport (, just 13 kilometres south-west of capital Denpasar. Most visitors can get a Visa on Arrival (check before you travel), which costs US$10 for stays of seven days or less, or US$35 for up to 30 days. Bring cash to speed up the process. From the airport, it's just a 20-minute drive north to Luna2 Private Hotel.


Luna2 offers free return transfers from and to Bali airport, with a chauffeured car available for guests' use at all times. We recommend you take full advantage of the courtesy wheels, as driving on the island can be hazardous and locals are far more au fait with the relaxed attitude to road rules.

Worth getting out of bed for

Apart from sampling the famous surf spots and swimming along Seminyak and neighbouring Legian and Kuta beaches, you can ask staff to organise everything from yoga, water Pilates and fitness sessions to horse-riding at sunset on the sand, with mounts from nearby Umulas stables. Spa treatments come to you here, with outdoor massage on offer in the relaxation balé (at extra cost). Soccer, badminton and croquet beckon on the front lawn, where the pool promises more aqua play. Seminyak is also a hot tip for shopping, with Balinese and international fashion and Indo homewares up for grabs. Gourmets can enjoy cookery classes with the hotel's chef. Movie buffs will love the projector for outdoor screenings. Further afield, Luna2's team can arrange boat trips, island-hopping, and excursions to a monkey forest and bird and elephant parks.

Local restaurants

You'll have to wrench yourself away from Luna2's dreamy in-house dining options, but Seminyak boasts some seductive venues to tempt you. A short stroll north up the beach will bring you to elegant seaside restaurant La Lucciola (+62 361 730 838) beside Petitenget Temple, an iconic spot loved for its mellow vibe and delicious Mediterranean fare. Tree lights up the romance factor at 'La Looch', as you watch the waves roll in, cocktail in hand. Another firm favourite is Sardine (+62 361 738 202) at 21 Jalan Petitenget, an easy 10-minute drive away, set in a striking bamboo house overlooking rice paddies. Sardines are the house speciality on the daily-changing menu, and there's a lovely bar for a pre-dinner sharpener.

Local cafés

Biku (+62 361 857 0888) is an enchanting 150-year-old Javanese teak joglo house as regal as its owner, Princess Asri Kerthyasi of Ubud, and her son, Tjok Gde Kerthyasa, a tea master. High tea is the main draw – start with a limited-edition Javanese tea and a three-tiered platter of sweets and sandwiches. All delicacies here are baked fresh daily, including the rose-petal cupcakes, and there is an assortment of colonial Javanese and Balinese antiques and pottery for sale. On weekends, tarot card readers are on hand to give you a glimpse of your future.

Local bars

Everyone who is anyone in Bali makes their way to Ku De Ta (+62 361 736 969), at 9 Jalan Laksmana, just a five-minute meander up the beach north of Luna2. Bali's best-known haunt for the beautiful people boasts three bars, a restaurant and a rooftop lounge with DJs spinning tunes from sunset into the wee hours. It's fabulous fun and you can't beat the awe-inspiring sunsets and prime beachfront location. Try the lychee martinis while you chat up the in-crowd.

Anonymous review

How can you not notice a mosaic of Marilyn Monroe in that famous subway grate pose at the bottom of the pool in which you’ve been splashing for days? It’s simply breathtaking, but we don’t see it until we decide, on our final morning at Luna2, to have a bombing competition. Self-timer on the camera set, we leap into action. That’s the moment Mr Smith and I spy the movie star in our midst.

A girl only plans on having one honeymoon in her life, so this trip to Bali and its luxurious beachside private hotel – there’s more than a touch of Hollywood to its exclusive nature – had a lifetime of dreams to live up to. It didn’t disappoint.

From the moment we walk through the doors, the attention to detail at Luna2 is evident. We’re met by the property’s general manager and shown around our jaw-dropping new pad. Owner and designer Melanie Hall has selected everything we see, and although the modern fusion style is one I’ve never considered when decorating my own home, it has me rethinking my taste – put simply, I adore it. The bold colours, retro furnishings and huge open spaces feel incredibly luxurious. Every room has ‘wow’ factor, including the kids’ playroom, which, even to a childfree couple, is spectacular. With five bedrooms, each with its own individual colour scheme, all the mod cons and a flurry of pop art, it is difficult to choose one for our stay (the hotel is exclusive-hire, so we have the place to ourselves). However, as soon as we enter the Green Room, we know it’s for us. It has everything a honeymoon suite should: elegant dark decor, glam Bisazza mosaic tiles and an elevated view of the beach.

While we sip wine and chat, the general manager has our bags whipped up to our room, where they are unpacked and our washing done. Our cameras are even plugged in to charge. Now that’s what I call service!

After settling in – because it’s so hard when someone else unpacks your bag for you – we wander out to the pool area. We are left to our own devices, and soon Mr Smith and I re-evaluate any thoughts we have of leaving our digs for the next few days. Tucking in to a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, we agree to make the most of this indulgent adventure. As our glasses near empty, someone silently appears to top us up, not to mention making sure we have ice-cold water and fresh fruit to keep up our strength.

Later that evening, Mr Smith and I are treated to one of the best meals we have ever had. Executive chef Brenden Peace prepares the most amazing seven-course degustation menu. In fact, throughout our stay, the Euro-inspired dishes are a highlight. An amuse bouche of porcini mushroom soup, ahi tuna with tomato salad, zucchini flower, eggplant and salmon roe, and Margaret River wagyu with mushroom, tomato jam, rosemary jus and tortellini are just some of our favourites. Everything is incredibly well conceived, beautifully presented and perfectly balanced.

The next morning, we owe it to ourselves to go for a run along adjacent Seminyak Beach – after all, the rest of the day is going to be full of exhausting activities such as reading books, drinking cocktails and eating. As we return from our jog, off come the shoes and straight into the glistening pool we dive. Soon, however, we are drawn by the smell of breakfast. As Mr Smith well knows, there is nothing I won’t do to find out where the smell of freshly baked bread is coming from.

Quickly, a daily ritual is established: run on the beach (to ease the guilt of our many indulgences), devour a sumptuous breakfast, relax by the pool, have a massage on the top deck, stroll to the Seminyak shops (who am I kidding – we take a Lunamobile, one of the on-site cars with driver), head home in time for a drink and canapés by the pool, out for more sunset cocktails at nearby bars Ku De Ta or Potato Head, and then back in time for dinner, which quickly becomes known to us simply as ‘heaven on a plate’. Mr Smith and I agree that the thing we most enjoy on our three-week honeymoon in Bali is Brenden’s mouth-watering meals.

Having 24 staff members (yes, that’s correct: 24) at our beck and call to help with absolutely anything is a luxury I have never before experienced. Luna2 would be brilliant for group getaways or families – for just one couple, it seems like something out of the movies, but I have no problems adjusting to the extravagance.

All too soon, check-out day arrives and the GM calls a chef buddy who works at Cocoon, a nearby beach club, to arrange for us to have lunch there. We spend the day in the sunshine, tasting every cocktail on the menu while the chef keeps sending out food. Eventually we have to beg him to stop. The Luna2 team even send us a text a few days later to see if we’re still enjoying Bali and if they can help us with anything else. You don’t get service like that very often.

Luna2 leaves a lasting impression: one of grandeur, quirkiness, coolness and attentiveness. It is so hard to let go of something so wonderful. Mr Smith and I are still wondering how early is too early to renew our vows. One year seems like it could work. We know a great place for a fabulous party.
