Breathtaking Vista in Bali
Uluwatu Resort is the place you must go to revitalize your spirit, open your eyes wide, and invigorate your mind. The view from my bungalow tantalizes me I can’t leave it. It’s the perfect place to take a nap, a swim, a walk, eat lunch, or get married. Romance swirls through the air after all the weddings here and who wouldn’t want to exchange vows on the southwestern most tip of Bali looking out over the Indian Ocean – a breeze gently blowing through the air. And they have internet access, body treatments, a secluded pool, and a superb garden all nestled in to this cliffside dwelling for lovers, artists, explorers, and surfers.
There is an international flavor here with guests from South Africa, France, Italy, Brazil, Spain, Hawaii, Australia, and the USA. They keep coming year after year.
If you can tear yourself away from the resort and the luscious food served in the restaurant — take the steps down to the beach that is carved out of coral at the bottom of the mountain. Caves and waves await you. As well as several warungs and surfers who know the score – these curls are gorgeous to look at even without surfing them.
Back up the hill stop at the new meditation room looking out over the delicious view of the ocean and feel the sacred energy from the huge hunk of coral it hugs.
I wanted to move in.
As if that isn’t enough, you can go to the water temple and see dances at night and visit Padang Beach and Dreamland too.
You will come away relaxed, happy, and replenished. Take a week or two – have a honeymoon or a second one – or start writing that book here – the bungalows are scrumptious – airy and full of light with high sloped Balinese ceilings soaring over your head as you are lulled to sleep every night by the ocean’s pounding surf. It’s like Big Sur California combined with Cinque Terre in Italy with a dash of Balinese jungle and a riot of orchids thrown in. I’m going back for more as soon as I can.
