Luna2 Bali

A retrospective time machine, clad with nostalgic design classics of the 20th century, sits on Seminyak, Bali’s prime beachfront

The Luna2 Private Hotel has gained an enormous amount of attention from international Design Hunters™. And it’s no surprise. The hotel’s quirky Richard Neutra-inspired architecture and retro-modernist interiors sit boldly next to the bamboo-lined buildings of Bali.

 

Fittingly, the hotel is named after the first spacecraft to reach the moon in the 1950s. In an astonishingly unusual stylistic fusion, Luna2 features five retro-style bedroom interiors, matched with various space-age elements such as electric violet walls, Philippe Starck cube loos and fishponds filled with cosmic coloured fish.

 

 

Each room is equipped with a set of funky 60′s inspired custom-designed furnishings with a geometric simplicity. The rooms were constructed with an open plan, giving the free-spirited traveller space to breathe and enjoy the view from outside the building’s glass walled verandas.

 

 

Outside sits a 20m swimming pool, where a Bisazza-tiled image of Marilyn Monroe looks upward from its depths. The bi-level property’s stone exterior is walled with sliding glass doors.

 

 

 

Whether it be a spaceship, time machine or somewhere in between, Luna2 has made it to the top of our ‘must visit list’. It’s totally out of this world.
