BaliUluwatu $$$$$ Close To Beach Wheelchair Friendly

Banyan Tree Ungasan: Review

A collection of luxury villas perched high on top of a 70-metre cliff, providing panoramic views over the Indian Ocean and surrounding local villages. Breathe in the fresh salty sea air as you relax by the hotel’s colossal infinity pool or take a free buggy ride down the cliff to explore shallow rock pools at the beach.

The Banyan Tree Ugasan knows a thing or two about luxury. Spacious guest villas offer authentic yet luxurious Balinese furniture, marble bathrooms, and plenty of opportunities to relax with bedroom doors opening straight into a private swimming pool, optional floating breakfasts and barbeques, and comfy day beds nestled in a Balinese bale. Shared facilities go above and beyond as well, with fine dining restaurants, a divine day spa, and a romantic chapel for couples ready to say ‘I do’.

Insider Tips For Banyan Tree Ungasan

Watch out for cheeky monkeys as they lurk near villas awaiting a moment when the door is open for just a few seconds to swing in, with their eyes set on the minibar. Just call the reception to request a security guard deployment, armed with a trusty water pistol to shoo the local wildlife away.


Best Parts:
  • Luxury villas with spacious living and sleeping areas, marble bathrooms, Balinese-style furnishings, and private swimming and jet pools.
  • Enormous infinity pool that appears to float out over the sea.
  • Optional extras like floating breakfasts, inflatable pool toys for hire, and organized activities like nature walks.
  • Secluded location away from swarms of tourists and close to nature.
  • Free buggy service to nearby beach.
  • Romantic restaurants and chapels ideal for weddings.
Could Be Better:
  • Expensive dining and few alternative restaurants within walking distance.
