Standing beautifully in the cliff-top near Bingin beach, Radisson Blu Uluwatu overlooks the beauty of Bali’s southern peninsula.


The low-rise resort offers a safe house fifteen miles away from the hustle bustle of metropolitan life and just ten minutes walk to the nearest beach. The newly-launched hotel is where seclusion laid its throne, where you can pander to the beauty of dawn and dusk from the rooftop terrace of its panorama suite.

If you are taking the lethargic mood seriously, you can literally stay inside the hotel without taking any step outside. From inside your room, there will be enough space to admire the modern interpretation of traditional Balinese architecture, which goes as detail as wood stitching on your walls. Gede Kresna, the great name behind the hotel’s architectural landscape, has included  the "Balinese way" not only as a gimmick, but as the base for their building construction.

It must be hard to get out of your comfortable, panoramic suite, but you have to because there’s a lot more to indulge in the resort. You can start with authentic Italian taste at Filini, the brand’s signature Italian restaurant. Next will be a private and serene spa session at Spa ESC, just one door away from the yoga room and beauty salon.

If you need some fresh air, outdoor lounge with pool view is a good choice. Being the pivotal point of the hotel, the main pool is facing all in-house entertainment in one side and scenic blue sea in another.

Uluwatu itself is a growing area still swarming in authentic local modes. In this case, the resort mixes well with the serenity of the region, which gains its reputation as one of the most sacred destinations for wedding.  With major cultural attractions like the Uluwatu Temple, Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, and a number of surfing sites at reach, the resort will be a perfect sanctuary for those seeking to feed their soul.
