DESTINATION WEDDING // Bvlgari Resort, Bali

If these images don't make you want to go on a holiday (immediately) or get married (again) I don't know what will! Bali is one of my favourite holiday destinations, it has the right amount of everything for me - gorgeously designed villas and hotels, amazing food, fantastic night life and pretty decent shopping in popular areas such as Seminyak. Not far from us here in Australia it's just a short plane ride to this paradise and there are some seriously spectacular properties.

Modern Balinese architecture has become a style in itself and fuses traditional Asian elements with contemporary design to create open light filled spaces centred around dramatic outdoor vistas. Completely secluded the Bulgari resort is built in traditional Balinese style however designer Antonio Citterio has given the interiors of each of the villas more of an Italian flare.  Having previously stayed at the W Hotel and Villa Masillia, both in Seminyak, I look forward to my next trip over as I will without a doubt be booking a few indulgent nights at the Bulgari Resort!

"The Bulgari Resort stands atop a cliff like a medieval fortress town, walled and secret. Each villa has its own garden, pool and an outdoor living room of 300 square meters that looks out over the alang alang rooftops (coconut thatch) and the Indian Ocean. The floor plan makes a sharp distinction between the quiet and reserved private area and the glamorously festive social area. The construction faithfully respects local techniques, and each stone has been cut and chiseled on site by hand."


 I just had to include these wedding set up shots - WOW!
