With the summer crowds gone, Bali has become a much more attractive proposition for travelers looking for a spot of peace and quiet. And if you like your seclusion with a serious side of luxury, then booking the Ungasan Clifftop Resort is a no-brainer. Located in one of the island’s most picturesque areas, it deserves a place at the top of your Bali bucket list. Here, Savoir Flair lists the five reasons why.
Perched atop a cliff on the grassy Bukit Peninsula – the southernmost tip of Bali – and overlooking the Indian Ocean, this chic resort enjoys some of the island’s best views. A stunning 280-degree panorama of turquoise-blue waters provides a fantastic backdrop for selfies and sunset drinks – what’s not to love?
With five luxury villas, each designed by a different architect, it’s hard to decide which one to pick. Looking for a traditional Balinese setting? Go for ‘Villa Ambar’. Craving a more contemporary stay? Then opt for ‘Jamadara’. In the mood for a colonial aesthetic reminiscent of the Hamptons? Book ‘Villa Tamarama’. Regardless of which one you end up choosing, each villa offers unparalleled views with 30-meter clifftop frontage and outdoor infinity pools – the perfect setting for lazy-day lounging.
Pro tip: Book an in-villa spa treatment to enjoy the view while getting pampered.
Whether you choose to dine in your villa or at the resort’s Selatan Restaurant, you’re in for a treat. The world-class menus at Ungasan were created in partnership with award-winning Australian chef James Viles and feature produce sourced from Bali’s most vibrant farms and markets. Treat yourself to a fine dinner on the restaurant’s terrace or opt for an intimate in-villa BBQ during which Ungasan’s chefs will prepare the likes of locally sourced yellowfin tuna and slow-braised beef.
An Oceanfront Beach Club
Hidden beneath the cliffs on a stunning stretch of white sandy beach, Sundays Beach Club is a true gem. Accessible from the resort via an inclinator, this is a great place for sunbathing, stand-up paddle boarding, or enjoying an açai bowl in the sunshine. Once the sun has set, you’ll find people dancing around a bonfire to the great tunes mixed by local and international DJs.
Ungasan is committed to offering exceptional service to its customers by catering to their every demand, with around-the-clock butlers, nannies, and drivers complementing the vast roster of resort amenities. This makes the prospect of travelling with children a lot less daunting – and a joy, in fact – making the resort very popular amongst families.
