Uluwatu beachfront villas

It’s true that Uluwatumajestic cliffs, rugged coastline, hidden beaches and otherworldly atmosphere draw in a diverse crowd of holidaymakers, including avid surfers and family vacationers. The region’s luxury vacation rentals and cliff top facilities adds on to its appeal as a romantic getaway for honeymooners and wedding couples.

Your Uluwatu villa perches atop the cliff, offering spectacular views out to the ocean. A lush garden, containing a sparkling pool, colourful tropical foliage and outdoor spaces surrounds the home. The living spaces feature an indoor-outdoor concept, modern amenities and views over the garden and coastline. A wide selection of villas - from cosy two bedroom properties, to capacious seven bedroom estates - are available to suit varying holiday needs. These holiday homes also lend themselves well as a wedding or event venue.

Hop into a car for a quick drive to the beach. Grab your surfboards, because Uluwatu is widely known for its world-class waves. The beaches of Bingin, Balangan, Green Bowl and Padang Padang are popular among experienced surfers. If you’re new to the sport, a better option would be Padang Padang right.

And even if you aren’t into surfing, it’s worth stopping by to take in the postcard-perfect scenery of the white sand beaches. Places like Padang Padang have been used as a filming location for Eat, Pray, Love. Others, like Blue Point Beach are peppered with seafront eateries that beckon inviting, tempting you into ordering an ice cold beer while you catch pro surfers in action out at sea.

Away from the beach, stretch it out in a yoga studio, visit a cliff-hanging temple or try your hand at whipping up your favourite local dishes.

Morning Light Yoga is a seaside studio that comes with our recommendation; here, yoga sessions are held in an open-air pavilion with stunning ocean views. Take in the stunning architecture of Uluwatu Temple, and stay on till the evening for a magical kecak fire dance performance. Or learn the ins and outs of Indonesian cuisine through a guided market tour and hands-on cooking class at Spice Spoons.

A cliff top dining experience is a must-do to be checked off every Uluwatu vacationer’s list. Places that stand out include French-Japanese fusion restaurant Ju-Ma-Na, Mediterranean restaurant Di Mare and Balique, a venue that serves up Asian and Mediterranean fare in a traditional setting. For a more intimate ambience, try out a private in-villa dining experience. You won’t have to lift a single finger, as the on-site team will handle all the details - from pre-stocking your villa, to engaging a personal chef. Bon Appétit!
