An alluring private island, where time passes more slowly, this is Cempedak Private Island
Ringed with white sand and strewn with granite boulders, Cempedak Island is a 17-hectare adults-only retreat where a deep respect for the environment has informed the ground-breaking design.
Welcoming a maximum of 40 guests, the island boasts 20 villas positioned either at sea level with direct access to the beach or on the hillside with views across the archipelago. Built from bamboo, alang alang grass and reclaimed teak, each features soaring ceilings, generous private decks with plunge pools and romantic bedrooms above.
A show-stopping restaurant and bar float above the treeline, providing outstanding views and nightly entertainment in the form of an open show kitchen and interactive cocktail bar. Beyond relaxing by the beachfront infinity pool, diving on tropical reefs and playing tennis on the grass courts, guests can venture into the rainforest with the island´s consultant naturalist in search of Cempedak´s endemic residents, which include a family of sea otters and the endangered pangolin.
