The Great Escape | Bali

Perched on a cliff facing the vast Indian Ocean, Alila Villas Uluwatu is blessed with the best views in Bali. But it's not just the panorama that overwhelms you; it's the high expectation that comes from mixing cutting edge design with unparalleled luxury. This hotel is pretty close to paradise, but for those who actually wish to leave the grounds and make Bali part of their vacation, the Uluwatu concierge has tips for finding gorgeous sights nearby.

Our Leisure Concierge?s Top Picks
 
Pura Luhur Uluwatu
Pura Luhur Uluwatu (Uluwatu Temple) is Bali's most spectacular temple.  Located 250 feet above the waves of the Indian Ocean, it?s where the pilgrimage of Dang Hyang Nirartha came to an end as the High Priest shed his natural human form and achieved a conscious death near the home of the God Baruna, Guardian of the Southern Seas.
 
 
New Kuta Golf
The front nine runs inland; it?s a beautiful hilly and undulating terrain, presenting golfers with a completely different experience from the back nine, which includes memorable ocean holes where the wind plays a distinctive role.
 
 
Bali Golf and Country Club
Designed by Nelson Wright, the 18-hole course has a championship rating of 73.2, a tournament rating of 71.7, a resort rating of 70.4, and a ladies? rating of 70.1. Nick Faldo holds the course record ? a marvelous 63 shot at the Alfred Dunhill Masters in November 1994.
 
 
Bali Collection Nusa Dua
Bali Collection is one of Bali's top entertainment destinations, featuring super-chic boutiques and restaurants, free live music in the park, and traditional dances.
 
 
Beaches in Uluwatu
Uluwatu has always been a top destination for surfing enthusiasts.  There are always plenty of surfers riding the waves at the white sand beaches in Utuwatu (which many consider the best in Bali); Balangan, Dreamland, Padang Padang, Suluban and Nyang Nyang beaches are all only 10 - 15 minutes away.
