A wedding at The Cove will offer unparalleled privacy and intimacy.
The walk-through grotto on the beach, the swimming pool deck perched over the ocean, the expansive lawn in front of the main house, the grass tennis court area are all valid options to accommodate a large gathering or an intimate ceremony.
Catering can be done in-house or can be outsourced to a favorite restaurant, planner or hotel, and the local Balinese priest can be available to bestow a special blessing.
The Cove itself can host up to 13 sleeping guests, however, the area around the villa offers a wide range of accommodation, from luxury villas, to charming hotels, to surfer budget lodgings.
A fleet of drivers and vehicles can be arranged to transport guests to and from the airport, and from The Cove to other accommodations.
A variety of activities for guests, ranging from spa treatments, to private yoga classes, to white water rafting, bicycle tours or dirt bike explorations are also available in nearby areas.
Brunches, cocktail parties or sunset tapas before or after the wedding can be organized in the villa.
A renewal of vows, a special birthday, a wedding anniversary, or a company offsite: The Cove is a exceptional venue. Festivities are enhanced by the gourmet food and through special arrangements such as a blessing from the Balinese village priest, an exclusive show of Balinese dance, or a Gamelan band concert.
Decorations of exotic flowers, canapés and cocktails served at the beach, a special brunch, are all happenings that can be arranged at very short notice, because sometimes, the best parties occur spontaneously. Just talk to the staff while in the villa, and they will do their best to make it happen for you.
The Cove is ideally situated in the Tabanan Regency in West Coast of Bali, where the surf waves are consistent and the sunsets are extraordinary.
It is two and a half hours from Denpasar International Airport (Ngurah Rai) and is located on the main road connecting Denpasar and Gilimanuk.
Despite being completely secluded and private, The Cove is a five-minute drive to the village of Balian, which attracts surfers from around the world and has some charming bars and restaurants, as well as an established yoga shala. Balian can also be reached via a 20 minute walk along the beach at low tide.
Excursions include visits to pristine rice paddies, traditional villages, colorful local markets, and ancient temple ceremonies. Pan Pacific Nirwana Golf Course, Ubud, Mount Batukaru, Pupuan, Medewi and Menjangan Island with its world class diving are all easy day trips from The Cove.
