Spend The Day: What To Do In Uluwatu

Where rugged cliffs spill down to greet the Indian Ocean and Bali’s most beautiful beaches, you’ll find Uluwatu. Located on the southernmost tip of Bali, known as the Bukit Peninsula, this tranquil beach-lovers’ haven offers myriad ways to fill your days. Discover what to do in Uluwatu.

A beach day at Sundays Beach Club

Carefree beach days are what Sundays Beach Club does best. One of The Ungasan’s team will be ready to greet you at the cliffside funicular, which will take you down to the beach for a daily schedule of activities, or simply to grab a lounger or beanbag to relax. Take to the crystal clear waters for kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkelling or swimming and enjoy delicious menus devised by Chef James Viles. You can even soak up a VIP experience in the VIP Bungalow or Beach House, for the ultimate exclusive and luxurious day out. 

When night falls, Sundays only seems to glow brighter with their array of starlit activities. As the late evening sun ignites the beach in a vibrant palette of oranges, yellows and reds, Sundays fires up beach bonfires, perfect for toasting marshmallows and enjoying alongside live music and DJs starting from 4pm on weekends. 

Sunset Dining: The Cove Dinner

What’s a visit to Uluwatu without making the most of its glorious sunsets? Reap the rewards with a sunset dinner, featuring sumptuous seafood and fresh dishes. Curated by award-winning Australian Chef James Viles, The Ungasan Clifftop Resort offers sunset dining throughout a range of locations within its beachfront setting. 

The Cove Dinner at Sundays offers an exclusive vantage point of the golden skies, accompanied by a five course menu and a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne. Set on a carefully selected spot of Sundays Beach Club, see a perspective of The Ungasan’s location few have seen before.

Visit Uluwatu’s Sunday Markets

For unique artisanal treasures, Sundaze at Uluwatu Market is the place where you can browse to your heart’s content, held every Sunday. Offering artisan goods, live music, a kid’s corner and street food, it’s a true treasure hunt among the ‘bohemian meets jungle’ vibe of the market’s venue, Hatch. A treat for the senses, uncover handmade jewellery, beautifully scented candles, custom prints and both traditional and modern creations that bring a varied collection of Balinese handicrafts under one roof.

Movie night

Every Wednesday at 7pm, visitors can watch the latest Hollywood films or classics at Movies by the Cliff on The Ungasan Lawn, in an open-air setting, amid lanterns and cosy sunken chairs. As the sun sets in the background, The Ungasan’s tranquil setting can be experienced most intensely, with soaring clifftop views.

Utilising a ‘silent cinema’ method, you can use earphones to listen to HD audio on your smartphone, in sync with the big screen visuals in front of you. Watch the likes of Finding Nemo, Crazy Stupid Love, The Beach and many more.

Uluwatu Temple

A visit to Uluwatu would be simply incomplete without visiting the renowned Uluwatu Temple. Climb the stairs to the top for a beautiful lookout over the Indian Ocean, rugged cliffs and the picturesque temple structures that form this scenic landscape. Not only does this spot provide a fulfilling experience, it offers one of the best places to watch the sunset and get a real taste of Balinese culture. Grab a ticket for the Kecak dance, performed each day at 5:45pm and 7:00pm.
