A guide to Uluwatu’s best beach clubs

Fantastic food, creative cocktails, incredible infinity pools, dynamic DJs, and sumptuous sea views — Uluwatu’s beach club scene is an experience to behold and an insatiably indulgent way of enjoying your day by the sea.

There are several of these luxurious destinations available to holidaymakers within Bali’s eclectic southern peninsula, all designed to add an extra layer of opulence to your beach excursion.

Sundays Beach Club

If luxury is what you’re after, then Sundays Beach Club is the epitome of the word. Nestled below the six-star Ungasan Clifftop Resort, this location delivers the best in extravagant leisure.

Botanical and meticulously well-kept resort grounds open up to reveal a funicular takes you down to the bay below. Once at the bottom of this magnificent cliff face, you’ll be presented with friendly staff whose mission it is to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Allow them to escort you to your private sun lounger or make your way through to the Ocean View Bar where you’ll discover an array of gourmet cuisine and word-class cocktail options.

Crafted by Executive Chef Josh Tyler, the menu offers something for every taste at any time of the day. From 9am, Sundays produces healthy but tasty takes on classics for breakfast, while their in-house mixologists are on hand to produce a breakfast cocktail to kickstart your day. Lunch is very much held to the same high standards with some classic yet delicious dishes such as the club burger, wonderful wood-smoked pizzas or blissful barramundi tacos. 

For an even greater VIP experience, Sundays is proud to present their Private Beach Bungalows. Like your very own piece of private beachfront real estate, these exclusive beach cabanas accommodate up to eight guests and come with glass of Chandon on arrival, personal daybed, private butler service and uninterrupted ocean views. 

This exclusive experience extends to Sundays Beach Spa. These six-star pampering cabanas overlooking the ocean are where you can treat yourself to fabulous massages, body scrubs, healing foot reflexology and so much more. If you’re after a more energetic adventure, take advantage of the complimentary kayaks, paddle-boards, fins, and snorkelling gear to take out into the lagoon whenever you please. 

Although the sun eventually disappears over the beautiful crimson horizon, this effervescent club is just getting started. From 5pm, a scattering of beachfront bonfires, beanbags, marshmallows transforms the bay into the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of champagne as a sparkly cloak of constellations appear across the sky.

Sundays isn’t always about relaxed campfires and blissful beanbags. Every month this location delivers a line up of live music and DJs to complement these sensational hours.

OMNIA Dayclub

With locations that include Las Vegas and San Diego, OMNIA’s collection of nightclubs takes its international pedigree and places it in Uluwatu. With fantastic views of the Indian Ocean and remarkably gorgeous architecture, OMNIA Dayclub is the perfect spot to enjoy cocktails, fine dining, swimming, and poolside lounging.

As one of the most stylish all-day lounging spots in Uluwatu, it’s set right next to Hakkaisan’s premier dining spot, Sake no Hana, which serves modern takes on classical Japanese delights, including sushi, sashimi, and toban and kamameshi delights.

As with any high-end club, VIP areas are available for those who want an even more elevated experience high up on the limestone cliff-face. Although there’s no direct access to the ocean, you can take a dip in the refreshing pool instead, while sipping some of the best cocktails the island has to offer, or simply drink in the views — which are absolutely stunning.

After sunset, the place comes alive with world-renowned DJs. Make sure you’ve eaten at Sake no Hana or are on the guest list as the top DJ sets sell out quickly.

Ulu Cliffhouse

A truly breathtaking experience on the cliffs of Uluwatu, Ulu Cliffhouse thrives off the energy and boldness of the rolling waves and vast ocean vistas below.

With access to a spacious 25-metre infinity pool and an exclusive beach, this eclectic location really does offer the best of both worlds, while offering fantastic cocktails and world-class cuisine as it hangs provocatively over the sea.

The restaurant and bar are housed in timber and rattan pavilions that provide soft, dappled shade and tiered dining with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Here, you can discover a menu carefully crafted by world-renowned Peruvian chef Diego Muñoz and his take on Uluwatu’s laidback lifestyle. Once you’ve eaten, find one of the numerous shaded sun loungers that dot the decking.

The centrepiece of Ulu Cliffhouse is the grand infinity pool. Revellers are invited to bask in the pool-side loungers amid gorgeous geometric motifs, pastel furniture, inviting hammocks and lush greenery. If you get thirsty, an array of mixologists can rustle up some fantastic alcoholic and virgin cocktails. 

Tucked away, out of sight but not to be missed, the ocean deck is a place where guests can sip on tiki-style cocktails as they bask in the best sundowner the island has to offer. When the tide is low, patrons have access to the bar’s very own private beach cove where the turquoise sea meets a fine, sandy shoreline.

The music at Ulu Cliffhouse brilliantly matches the quality of the venue. Bringing together Bali’s most experienced and eclectic DJs, a constant soundtrack uplifts and provides the perfect backing to a beautiful Uluwatu sunset.

Karma Beach Club

A locally grown bamboo and classic thatched roof exterior is magnificently mixed with a lavishly contemporary interior to create Karma Beach Club — a truly stunning, intimate and secluded destination for holidaymakers searching for a private beach experience. 

The yellow sand, blue waters and brilliant bar are reached exclusively via Karma Kandara Resort’s funicular, which provides sweeping vistas over the bay. Once you’ve reached the bottom, you’ll understand why this venue is so highly regarded amongst locals and travellers alike.

The restaurant offers exquisite and delicious Mediterranean, Asian and Indonesian cuisine throughout the day. Take your pick from fresh fish plucked daily from the ocean, expertly prepared sushi and sashimi, or one of Karma’s legendary Hot Babi Guling (Suckling Pork) BBQ Beach Parties.

The beach club features private lounging quarters that can open up as double daybeds for up to ten people and a personalised butler service for a high-class VIP venture. This carefree setting benefits from some down-tempo tunes throughout the day, but at night, internationally renowned DJs from London and Ibiza converge to deliver music that will keep you dancing barefooted underneath the stars for hours.
