Bali’s southern peninsula - known as the Bukit Peninsula - is a well-loved destination among villa travellers. Uluwatu villas, perched atop the cliffs with views out to the Indian Ocean are a huge draw, but there are many other aspects that draw vacationers to this part of the island: world-class surf breaks, charming oceanfront dining venues and swathes of fine beaches. Starting from Jimbaran, the Bukit Peninsula is made up of other regions such as Balangan, Pecatu, Padang-Padang, Dreamland, Ungasan and Uluwatu.
Expect to live large and in style when you rent one of the stunning villas here! Spacious, with breezy, open-air living spaces and extensive gardens, the abodes are ideal for accommodating large groups and families. Apart from the usual fittings you’d expect of a luxury holiday home - like impeccable service, in-house chef services and a private pool and garden - you’ll also enjoy additional amenities such as a cinema, fitness room, spa room and pool deck with views out to the sea.
Trust us when we say that you haven’t properly been on vacation in Bali until you’ve stepped onto one of the picturesque, powdery shores lining the southern coast. Some of the most popular beaches at this part of the island include Green Bowl Beach, Balangan Beach, Bingin Beach and Padang-Padang Beach. The white sand shores, surf breaks and Instagram-worthy scenery draw beach lovers and surfing enthusiasts alike. The beaches are accessible, with most of being located a 15 to 30-minute ride from your villa.
But Uluwatu offers more than just the sun, sand and surf. Plan a family day trip around the south, filling up your itinerary with visits to attractions like the cliff-hanging temple of Uluwatu and Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park. If you haven’t yet watched any of the traditional Balinese dance performances, the evening kecak dance at the Uluwatu Temple is a great one to start with. Both attractions are about a 20 to 30-minute ride from your doorstep, and if you aren’t keen on driving your villa manager will gladly assist with transportation arrangements.
A spectacular dining experience will round out your day perfectly. And you’ve got plenty of options dotted around your villa - from El Kabron Spanish Restaurant Cliff Club (a stunning clifftop venue), to Di Mare Restaurant (an elegant seafront dining establishment) and Sundara Bali (a stylish beach club complete with tropical, open-air dining spaces and infinity pool). If this is not enough, head to Seminyak but expect at least a 1-hour drive.
Or stay in and let your in-house chef conjure up culinary magic in your fully equipped kitchen. A scrumptious al fresco dinner awaits - enjoy!
