From the villa’s lofty lookout, if the sea is calm, guests can observe the coral reef and the seaweed farms beneath the surface. They may even spot turtles, dugongs, manta rays and migrating pilot whales, as well as the long tailed grey macaque monkeys that play in the neighbouring areas where the landscape is dotted with cactus, kapok trees and gorgeous scarlet flamboyants.
A tropical, equatorial climate means year-round balmy temperatures, this region is much drier than the rest of the island, yet cooler due to the offshore trade winds. The barrelling surf breaks here are among the best in the world, and guests at Latitude can enjoy the amenities of the Karang Kembar Beach Club.
There are two world-class golf courses on the Bukit, and for adventurous guests there is a paintball facility as well as a paragliding centre on the cliff, 80 metres above the nearby Timbis Beach. The remainder of the island offers a rich mosaic of cultures, tastes, sights and sounds, shopping facilities and restaurants together with a wide array of outdoor activities.
