Uluwatu Villas – The Real Balinese Experience

Bali is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world. Located in the archipelago of Indonesia, it has plenty of gorgeous white sand beaches and a strong Hindu culture. The Balinese people are probably the most spiritual people on Earth. It is no wonder that for Indonesians, Bali is known as the Island of the Gods.

The moment you arrive in Bali, you will feel the balance between pleasure and leisure of this paradise island. Bali has many places to visit and plenty of activities to do. You can see traditional dances, witness cultural events or traditional ceremonies, do all sorts of water sports or enjoy the nightlife scene. At the same time, Bali also offers a peaceful and serene atmosphere that you can’t get anywhere else in the world.

If you are looking for a more quite getaway, you should stay away from the more touristy places such as Kuta. The best way to enjoy Bali is to go to the more secluded areas like Uluwatu. Uluwatu is located in the southern tip of Bali. It is famous for its Pura Luhur Uluwatu, a Hindu temple that is located on top of a steep rocky cliff overlooking the ocean. It is probably the most stunning temple on the paradise island. Uluwatu is also famous for its traditional dance, the Kecak. And if you happen to love water sports, Uluwatu also has the most perfect beach for you.

If you choose to stay in Uluwatu, it is best if you rent your own private villa. Not for the faint hearted, most of the villas in Uluwatu are located on top of a cliff, overlooking the sea. There you can enjoy the cool sea breeze and the relaxing sound of sea waves all throughout the day. These private villas do not only provide you with beautiful scenery, but they also provide you with the comfort and luxury of a five star hotel. You can get a private driver, cook as well as butler.

Imagine staying in a luxury villa surrounded by a gorgeous garden of frangipani and palm trees. Picture yourself watching the sunset from the terrace, enjoying a romantic evening with your loved one. Staying in a villa will definitely provide you with a quiet and relaxing getaway, where you can be far away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, and be entertained by the beauty of the nature that is around you. There is really no better way of spending your holiday in Bali other than this.

Blissful Experience of a Villa Spa

Driving along the streets of Ubud reminded me to the news a heard a few months ago, Bali was named as the Best Spa Tourism Destination 2009 by Berlin based fitness magazine, Senses. The news itself was not a surprise as during the last decades I have been seeing Bali having more and more spas. I do not really pay attention in their offerings but I believe Bali has the widest range of available options in many point of views, various treatments from Indian ayurveda to traditional Balinese boreh, various price range from the ones on Poppies Lane on backpacker’s paradise of Kuta to Prana at the trendy enclave of Seminyak which is popular to the higher end holiday makers.

You can find spa in almost every tourist enclave across the island but I believe most are concentrated in the hillside resort town of Ubud. Serene environment surrounded by verdant rice fields and tropical forest, Ubud has perfect setting for blissful body, mind, and soul rejuvenation. For those who are prepared to pay more for luxury there are a number of names to consider such as Prana in Seminyak, Mandara Spa with various outlets in different locations, Thalasso at Grand Mirage Nusadua, Begawan Giri Spa in Ubud, Frangipani at Sheraton Nusadua, and Pita Maha Resort and Spa in Ubud are just to name some.

But what if you are among the new wave holiday style that seek for privacy as the sixth star beyond five-star luxury standard? In this distinguished group you certainly prefer private villas instead of public accommodation like resort hotels in the name of ultimate privacy. If you chose private accommodation, then getting rejuvenation treatments in the same level of privacy would be you preference as well, but is there any private spa around? The answer is yes. A few Bali luxury villas have dedicated spa and in-house therapist allowing you to enjoy the treatment at anytime you want in the privacy of your private villa.

Surrounded by rivers on two sides and rice fiend spanning to the horizon Simona Oasis at Canggu has a dedicated spa where you can enjoy your treatment in the serenity of its peaceful environment.
