when you are the most watched man on television, according to the Guinness Book of Records, and almost as famous for a Berlin Wall-busting song entitled Looking for Freedom, you’re going to be in need of somewhere that offers blissful seclusion. Indeed, in these troubled times, it’s what most of us could do with right now – a peaceful paradise that takes us far away from reality and routine.
It seems that David Hasselhoff has found his slice of paradise on the tiny, car-free Indonesian island of Gili Meno, which sits a short helicopter hop away from the islands of Lombok and Bali. “I can just come here and park. I can breathe, work from here, scuba dive in the warmest water I’ve ever known and take a boat over to Gili Trawangan for huge lobsters that cost $6,” enthuses the 65-year-old former Baywatch star.
He is among the first buyers at BASK Gili Meno, a new collection of 87 furnished, luxury villas that start at $200,000 (£154,000) for a studio and rise to $1 million for a three-bedroom beachfront villa like the Hoff’s (baskgilimeno.com). It’s about half the price you would pay in nearby Bali.
