Named after the first spacecraft to reach the surface of the Moon, Luna 2 Studio makes a bold leap away from the ubiquitous ‘modern Balinese’ style resorts and villas on the island of Bali in Indonesia.

Designed by owner Melanie Hall, the ‘studiotel’ evokes a strong sense of nostalgia with its modernist-inspired interiors.

Luna 2 Studio’s facade harks back to the ‘60s with its circular forms, and iconic art references are present throughout the interior, including a wall-mounted installation in the lobby (top image) inspired by the work of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian.

Bright primary colours punctuate the stark white walls, while geometrical patterns, bright furnishings and accessories, and walnut detailing come together to create a warm and vibrant spaces.

The 14 spacious studios all feature one of four accent colours – yellow, red, green and blue. Each comes with a modular open-plan lounge equipped with the latest technology, a workstation, dining area, and a large balcony overlooking the colourfully-tiled swimming pool.

For dining, guests can head to Orbit restaurant, which leads to the underground Pop! Lounge Bar. Those looking to be entertained can also visit the plush and suitably named 16-seat cinema called “Lunaplex”.

Perhaps not to everyone’s taste, the flagrant disregard for convention is handled playfully with the cacophony of colours defying any visitor to leave ambivalent!
