In central Seminyak, a few steps from the beach, this cosmic pad for globetrotting gastronauts and jet setting "luna-tics" launched in 2013. It's next door to its sister property, the acclaimed Luna2 Private Hotel (actually, a mega-luxe five-bedroom villa), offering a new boutique "studiotel" concept—more South Beach or London than Bali. The results combine the sky-high services of an exclusive hotel with the intimacy of a private home, while remaining seriously playful. Inspired by the unmanned first moon spacecraft (landed by the Soviets in 1959), British owner-interior designer Melanie Hall reveals a nostalgic obsession with the eras from the 1950s to the 1970s, with splashes of humor (Monopoly and Rubik's Cube pieces reinvented as giant-sized corridor objects and the like). Retro-modernist design permeates the style, service, music, and cuisine, with space and airline travel references everywhere, from reception staff kitted out in 1960s-style Pan Am flight attendant uniforms to space-capsule beds to cosmic in-house public spaces such as the Orbit café/restaurant/bar and the Space Rooftop Bar. These come fueled with the house's gourmet "Lunafood," and a "Wine Spectator"-awarded wine cellar.

Named after Monopoly board game streets, the 14 studios are spacious, each individually designed with entertaining in mind. The open-plan arrangements have an Austin Powers "yeah, baby" vibe. Units are lavishly appointed, with luxe retro gadgetry including ultra-cool Smeg refrigerators (MAXI bars) and cube-shaped Brionvega TVs. The largest of the lodgings, the Sunset Studio, is an out-of-this-world party pad, complete with two corner balconies, ample lounge-dining space, and a bar with an on-call bartender. All rooms overlook the lap pool, which plays underwater "Lunatunes" and is perfect for pool parties. Other property highlights include a glitzy, Studio 54style private nightclub and a decadent movie theater.
