Armchair Travel to Bali | Pineapple Hill

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...

 

 Flanked by rice paddy fields with hand-woven pinwheel scarecrows and paper kites flying in the breeze we stopped outside an oversized door with welcoming marigold-lined steps. The door, the most perfect shade of gloss (think a very early Prada shade) with striking brass hardware and walls of white render just oozed in style and you could tell that something fabulous was on the other side!

 

Enter the iconic Australian creative whose career has blessed our Australian fashion & interior landscape over the past 40+ years, Stuart Membery!

Introducing Pineapple Hill.

This is his latest project, an oasis villa secreted by high walls once entered, it has a central pool with countless palm trees & 4 bedrooms spilling off it and a large airy poolside dining & lounge room run by the best of his staff. 

 

The combination of old-world charm and elegance with a dash of humour takes its cues (not confirmed by SM) from a 1960s movie set with Doris Day & Raffles Singapore. I wouldn't have been surprised if the likes of Bunny Melon had wandered out of one of the rooms and offered me a cocktail.

The look is all Stuart with his hallmark Island Luxe style with timeless furniture pieces from his own collection mixed with cool graphic art, vintage textiles & monogrammed bed linen within the restrained palette of green & white.

 

Once you have entered these doors, it is tempting never to leave this calm & glamour as this is personalised boutique hospitality at its best (even down to the monogrammed bathroom amenities.

It will reset you into the rhythm and awe of nature. I went in late April when the Tanglefoot Fagus, an endemic deciduous beech endemic to the Tassie highlands  leaves were turning and littered the track like orange & yellow snowflakes.
