Following the success of her first venue, the Luna2 Private Hotel, in Bali’s Seminyak suburb, founder and designer of Luna2, Melanie Hall, has now expanded her portfolio with Luna2 Studios – a unique studiotel experience that is fast taking off.
Echoing this distinctive fusion of hotel and studio environments, the design of Luna2 Studios is equally individual. Largely inspired by her father – an architect in the 50s and 60s – Melanie Hall is passionate about modern design classics.
Indeed, from the structure’s 60s-inspired facade, adorned with circular forms, to the wall-mounted installation in the lobby inspired by the work of Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian, Luna2 Studios is littered with iconic art references.
Referencing classics such as Monopoly, Rubik’s cubes and Lego, bright primary colours pop from the stark white walls, while geometrical patterns, bright furnishings and walnut detailing combine to create welcoming, yet visually arresting spaces.
Boasting 14 open-plan studios, a restaurant, Lunaplex 16-seat cinema, pool and Space rooftop bar, there is plenty to entertain guests whatever their preference.
Featuring one of four accent colours – red, yellow, green and blue – each of the 14 studios offer open-plan lounges, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Modular furniture, designed by”Melanie Hall herself, is complemented by statement designer pieces and accessories from across the globe.
With retro SMEG fridges, a pre-loaded iPod and sound dock, iPad, two flatscreen TVs and a retro Bronvega TV with wireless headphones, the studios have been carefully fitted with the very latest mod cons.
Complementing these high-tech guest rooms, the studiotel also offers a plethora of health and fitness services, from personal training sessions to spa therapies. Of particular note is the Mondrian-ic colour-blocked swimming pool formed from vibrant Bisazza mosaics, and injected with sub-surface sounds.
Swimmers can also peek through an underwater window into the pop! lounge bar – an underground designer den fitted out in arresting shades of purple, shocking pink, pan-am turquoise, red and silver.
For a more relaxed experience, guests might wish to visit Lunaplex – a private 16-seat cinema screening everything from the latest blockbusters to much loved classics three times a day. Alternatively, visit the Space rooftop bar – complete with striking ocean views.
