Bottom Line

The 72-room Anantara Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa is a modern luxury resort perched on a cliffside with gorgeous views over the Indian Ocean from most of its facilities, including a rooftop restaurant and beautiful infinity-edge pool. Spacious suites and villas offer stylish, contemporary decor and private balconies with outdoor soaking tubs, plus a duplex penthouse is available with a private pool and sundeck. The luxurious spa features a wide range of treatments including hair and nail services, and there’s also a fitness center and yoga classes are offered. The property’s cliffside locale, though scenic, also means that there are lots of steps to navigate throughout the grounds, and though there’s direct access to a private beach, it’s rocky and not always swimmable. For a sandy beach, travelers might want to consider another luxurious offering from the brand, the Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa.

Scene

Luxury resort perched on a cliff with modern architecture, lush greenery, and ocean views 

This luxury Uluwatu resort offers sweeping views of the Indian Ocean from its cliffside perch on a secluded spot of rugged coast, delivering a serene escape. It draws lots of couples and honeymooners, though families with kids are also attracted by its spacious villas. The resort consists of grassy-roofed suites and villas, the modern architecture stacked like steps tumbling down to a stunning infinity-edge pool, with lots of lush greenery climbing and weaving its way through the property. A grand, stone staircase leads to the main entrance, where guests are greeted in a sleek, black marble-floored lobby. The large space is fairly spare, with beautiful chairs made of rugged tree stumps that draw the eye and succinctly sum up the aesthetic of the property: sleek and minimalist modernity meets the wild nature of a craggy coast. Colorful abstract art adorns the white walls and the marble front desk is topped with potted flowers and plants, with more greenery spilling from large planters lining another grand staircase with gorgeous ocean views that leads down the property. Guests should note that the steep grounds are littered with steps, which might be hard to navigate for some, though there is an elevator that goes all the way down to the beach (but doesn't operate all day).

Location

Secluded cliffside location overlooking Indian Ocean

The resort is situated on a cliffside overlooking the Indian Ocean, in a secluded location that’s not within walking distance of anything besides the beach. The nearby Padang Beach is a four-minute drive, and the property operates a free shuttle. Pura Luhur Uluwatu, an ancient Hindi temple, is about a 15-minute drive and the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park is a 25-minute drive. The town of Kuta, with the Ngurah Rai International Airport, is a 40-minute drive.

Rooms

Spacious, contemporary suites and villas with lots of tech amenities and private balconies with tubs or plunge pools

The hotel’s luxurious suites, Pool Villas, and its deluxe duplex Penthouse offer beautiful ocean or garden views and tasteful modern decor in neutral hues. Sleek wooden furnishings like work desks and nightstands pair well with a textured wooden accent wall, while subdued gray hues of contemporary couches, walls, and floors make a good backdrop for colorful pops of abstract art, as well as the gorgeous views and greenery framed by floor-to-ceiling windows that open on to private balconies with outdoor soaking tubs (some have private plunge pools). The spacious units all have comfortable sitting areas, and are outfitted with flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and DVD players, iPod docks, Bose home stereos, minibars, Nespresso machines, fluffy robes, and free Wi-Fi. Beautiful bathrooms have separate sink areas with large vanities, huge mirrors, and ample storage space, as well as large walk-in rainfall showers, plus generous amounts of bath products. The large two- and three-bedroom Pool Villas have separate living and dining areas, while the luxurious two-bedroom Penthouse offers stunning panoramic views, a pantry for personal butler service, as well as a private pool and sundeck.

Features

Three restaurants, stunning infinity-edge pool, luxurious spa, yoga classes, rocky beach, and more

The hotel’s remote location means that most guests rely on the on-site restaurants, and there are several to choose from. The rooftop 360 Restaurant offers gorgeous views as well as local and international dishes, plus it serves an extensive breakfast buffet which is included in room rates. Sono Teppanyaki serves modern Japanese cuisine, while fusion Asian and Mediterranean dishes can be had at Splash, which also offers signature cocktails and live music. The hotel also offers a special Dining by Design feature, which is a tailored private dining experience.

The lovely grounds include a cliff-edge infinity pool that offers stunning views over the ocean. Padded loungers surround, with more on terraces throughout. Guests also have access to a rocky beach, though it’s not always swimmable and the elevator that goes down to it does not operate all day (but guests can walk). The hotel operates a free shuttle bus to nearby Padang Beach. There's also a full service spa with five beautiful treatment rooms and a hair salon as well as nail services, plus the hotel has a fitness center and yoga classes are offered frequently. A variety of activities like Balinese cooking courses and dance classes can also be organized. A popular wedding venue, the resort has a beautiful glass chapel with gorgeous ocean views.
