Drawn by stirringly beautiful landscapes of rice paddies and rainforest, some of the most spectacular coastlines and beaches in the world and a warm friendly people, visitors flock to this island paradise.

Balinese Hinduism evolved from mainstream over 500 years ago and is an integral part of life for the Balinese. The many colourful ceremonies and daily offerings are one of the most fascinating aspects of Bali.

Bali is also renowned for its world class surfing breaks. Blessed by natural reef breaks and beach breaks there is an adventure for all levels of surfer from beginner to intermediate.

Please note you will not be allowed into the country if your passport is valid for less than six months. It is really important because there have been clients in the past that have not been able to enter through the Ngurah Rai airport because of the passport expiry date is less than six months.

With potential medical, liability, cancellation risks involved in holidays, travel insurance is important, as deposits and rental payments are not refundable after a reservation has been confirmed. We highly recommend to buy and all-inclusive travel insurance package which covers all your expenses if you need to cancel your holiday due to personal reasons or a world event.

 

ABOUT ULUWATU

Uluwatu is at the southernmost tip of southern Bali, Indonesia.

Uluwatu proper is a small village on the west coast, south of Jimbaran, but for most visitors it refers only to the famous temple of the same name, several kilometers further south. Many people also use it to refer to the area south of Jimbaran. The entire area is also called the Bukit Peninsula or just The Bukit, while Pecatu (peh-CHA-tuh) refers to a small village inland.

Uluwatu started life as a surfer's haven. Small bungalows close to surf points where the only options for a long time. Now the area has sprouted an impressive collection of expensive villas and resorts as well. Beware false advertising though: only the most expensive "villas" are completely private and self-contained, while most share at least some facilities (eg. pool) and the cheapest ones are just clusters of bungalows.
