Here, 103 low-slung villas and suites step down toward a series of terraced pools recalling the paddy fields of the island’s well-watered interior.
It was the 1971 classic surf film, Morning of the Earth, which first brought the jaw-dropping scenery of Uluwatu on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula firmly into the global spotlight. Today, the area is just as much a magnet for surfers as it is for those seeking the privacy and comfort of its cliff-top lodgings.
The latest of these is Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali, whose 103 low-slung villas and suites step down toward a series of terraced pools recalling the paddy fields of the island’s well-watered interior. It’s a subtle arrangement that shows off infinite views of the Indian Ocean at every turn.
And being a Six Senses resort, locally inspired treatments and multi-day wellness programs are another drawcard, while its restaurants harness ingredients plucked straight from the in-house organic farm and garden. Look out for executive chef Ricardo Luján, who is set to make waves with his Latin American twist on Balinese fare (doubles from US$460).
