While some people enjoy vacationing in all the hot spots of the world where their time away from home is like one giant party filled with exciting things to see and do and enjoy staying in elegant hotels or private villas with all the mod cons, other people enjoy those quiet vacations where they can simply relax and soak up the sun and explore places off the beaten track and those quiet B and B’s or small budget hotels. Still others love a combination of the two, enjoy those elegant private villa surroundings and the quiet ruggedness of being off the beaten track. However, finding a combination of a quiet spot to vacation and the elegant living of a 5 star resort all in one place isn’t always easy. That is what makes Bali’s Bukit peninsula such a welcome change for many people.
Imagine: a beautiful limestone peninsula with rugged cliffs overlooking the ocean, mountains in the distance, spectacular beaches, and a quiet relaxed way of life. Where the most exciting activities of any day is taking a motorbike to the beach and watching the surfers challenge those big waves, or taking a quiet swim and looking for sea shells.
Then choosing to drive along the beaches and exploring the sea caves that date back to prehistoric time or taking the time to visit the quaint little sea temples that dot the peninsula’s coast. Then after a quiet day of exploring, swimming or simply enjoying the beach return to a spectacular villa where you can have a relaxing massage before heading outside to a perfectly appointed table overlooking the ocean where you will enjoy a wonderful meal cooked by a talented chef.
Well, you don’t have to imagine such a holiday. It can be yours. The Bukit peninsula is an unspoiled haven where you can relax and enjoy your days. Nightlife is practically nonexistent unless you want to drive 30 to 45 miles so having a comfortable place to stay during the evening is almost a must and what could be better than staying at one of the plush villas this area has to offer.
There are several around but, perhaps the most beautiful and centrally located is the Suluban Cliff Bali. Located between two world class surfing beaches Uluwatu and Padang Padang, and only a ten minute walk from quiet Suluban beach and a 15 minute drive from the Kuta golf course and a 5 minute drive from the Uluwatu temple. This villa has four charming suites that are beautifully appointed and the main villa has a comfortable living area where you can spend time, meet the other guests or simply enjoy a quiet evening. Complete with awesome views from every part of the Villa estate to relaxing spa and pool this Villa has everything to make your stay in the Bukit as luxurious as it is peaceful.
While the Bukit peninsula may not be for everyone those who enjoy a quiet and rugged vacation spot while enjoying the comfort and elegance of a 5 star resort will find this part of Bali a dream come true.
