Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced that it will develop a resort in the southwest of Bali at Uluwatu, a 35-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The new luxury resort is set atop a rugged cliff, sharing the spectacular ocean views with the island’s famed Uluwatu Temple. 

The luxury Bali resort and spa has been brilliantly designed and will include 28 sky villas, 62 one-­bedroom villas and seven two-bedroom villas. The ultimate in Six Senses accommodations, the expansive and beautifully-appointed retreat villa, sits on a prominent knoll with sweeping views of the ocean and overall resort.

Two restaurants, a pool bar and a specialty restaurant with chef’s table, cooking school and extensive organic garden are also planned.

In a famed island environment so deeply rooted with wellness and personal care, the resort’s spa will feature locally-inspired specialty treatments together with an extensive menu of signature therapies.

In addition to the spa, on-site activities will include a vast central pool and a gym. An event lawn will enhance the facilities of a beautiful ballroom, two meeting rooms and a wedding pavilion. The resort’s own Balinese temple will create a tranquil setting and present the true essence of the island’s deep cultural beliefs.

Uluwatu is perhaps best known for Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of the six key temples believed to be Bali’s spiritual pillars, renowned for its magnificent location, perched on top of a steep cliff approximately 70 meters above the sea. Ulu means top or tip and watu means stone or rock in Bahasa Indonesia. Several archaeological remains found here prove the temple to be of megalithic origin, dating back to around the 10th-century.

Six Senses Bali is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017, sixsenses.com
