Mandala The Rocks


Breezy Bali beach house


On the rocks

For surfers, seafarers and everyone in between, Mandala the Rocks gets you up close and personal with the waves like never before. The villa is perched directly above the sandy shore and bulky boulders – and who needs a pool when the ocean is in front of you? This beachfront bolthole has a surf-in, surf-out sort of set-up, with a crew that will do all the hard work for you, right down to the surf instructor on hand to deal with any kooks. The all-white, mostly marble, open-air living space has a bar and ocean deck, and those sea views keep on coming, thanks to the terraces in each of the six bedrooms.
