“The Edge” by MESA is an award-winning, gravity-defying cliff and seaside resort located in Uluwatu, Bali. It first opened its doors in 2009 and is about to undertake a massive overhaul later this year.

In late 2017 a new wing of the resort will open, including a oneeighty° clifftop club with a jaw-dropping glass bottom infinity pool 500ft above the Indian Ocean.

During the day, the club is a family friendly place with a two lane bowling alley, a private cinema and karaoke room. But it boasts a 1,500 bottle wine cellar, with a private bar and DJ lounge at night.

Other new facilities at The Edge include four new villas and ‘atas’, a modern Indonesian restaurant. Executive Chef Nyoman Suasa has long been at the vanguard of modern Indonesian cuisine and his dinner menu combines clever presentation and masterful technique.

The Edge believes in the importance of a good breakfast to start the day. Served by your personal butler, breakfast is provided with all accommodation and includes freshly baked breads, donuts, pastries and preserves, smoked salmon, fresh fruit yoghurts, sumptuous tropical fruit platters and an array of a la carte options to please every palate.

There is also a unique natural subterranean chamber that is perfect for intimate meetings, dining or small events.

For the active, there’s a rooftop tennis court as well as a gym with ‘LifeFitness’ weight training machines, cross trainers, treadmills and cycling machines, as well as free-weights and unobstructed, scenic views.

The resort is also known for being family friendly and private, with 8 different villas to choose from. “The View” is the most luxurious, with five bedrooms complemented by two natural stone pools, two private bales, an eight seat cinema, children’s playroom, two large living rooms, a tropical garden and two cliff-front decks with event areas.

There are other options catered towards couples and families of all sizes. The Ridge has maids’ quarters, a private bar and a custom kitchen. The Villa is a one bedroom Villa perfect for romance. Each Villa boasts state-of-the-art entertainment systems and luxury amenities. At the bar or in your villa, the mixologist team conjure up cocktails on request.
