Luna2 Private Hotel in Bali, Indonesia describes itself as a “Cosmic space for jet-setting lunatics.” This statement is explained and supported in each of the private hotel’s luxurious Retro-Modernist rooms. Every inch of the property is a mash-up of nostalgic character melded with bright modern sensibilities. The environment is ideal for a younger crowd that firmly lives and thrives in the digital age.
Renting the property gives the jet-setter access to the entire facility, including the game room where both kids and adults can enjoy. The garden terrace is home to the 20-meter iconic, hand-laid mosaic tile of Marilyn Monroe adorning the bottom of the swimming pool. As the sun sets on the “Island of the Gods,” take in the lava-colored sunset with a fine cocktail. If you are interested in expanding your palette, explore one of the most extensive wine collections on the island.
When the time comes to explore the island head out in one of the “Luna mobiles” from the Luna2 fleet. Choose from one of the Vespas, Smart Cars or full-sized SUVs. And don’t worry about getting to or from the airport as Luna2 provides an unparalleled shuttle service including cold towels, your choice of music, and alcoholic beverages.
