Ungasan Beach Villas is a group of privately owned residences rest within gated and secured boutique resort located on the Bukit Peninsula, 16km from Balis International Airport and 20km from the endless shopping, vibrant nightlife and international restaurants of Seminyak. Ubud Balis centre for fine arts and cultural performances is 49km to the north. The remainder of the island offers a rich mosaic of cultures, tastes, sights and sounds, together with a wide array of activities.
The Bukit Peninsula is a 140-square-kilometre limestone tableland that dangles like a pendant upon a chain at the southern tip of the island. A curious, windswept geographic feature, it stands out in sharp contrast to Balis lush, alluvial plains.
Bukit is the Indonesian word for hill, and this dry-land outcrop was once home solely to seaweed farmers, fisherman and die-hard surfers. Since the Millennium, however, this up-and-coming region has reinvented itself to become the most up-market destination on the island. The Bukit now boasts some of Balis most opulent destination villas, glamorous private estates, and internationally-branded boutique hotels, making it the area of choice for discerning travellers and residents.
The turquoise waters are the playground of migrating whales, and the dry, rocky landscape is dotted with wild flowers, manioc, prickly pear cactus, scarlet flowering flamboyants and fascinating kapok trees. This region is much drier than the rest of the island, cooled by coastal hill breezes. Even in the rainy season it is a reliable sun-trap. When the waves are calm and the tide is full, turtles and dugongs can be seen swimming in the crystal waters close to the shore. The Bukit presents some of the most idyllic beaches in Bali; hidden sandy coves a dream for both surfers and non-surfers alike, although not always safe for swimming.
The 18-hole, championship, New Kuta Golf Course at Pecatu, covers 85 hectares above Dreamland Beach, and was designed by Ronald Fream. Its signature hole, no. 15, commands splendid views. The course is just 15 minutes drive from the resort.
Perched on a cliff 70 metres above the roaring Indian Ocean, Pura Uluwatu (11km) is one of Bali's nine key directional temples. Facing west and with steep headlands on either side creating an unbelievably dramatic setting, sunsets over Uluwatu are spectacular.
Tanjung Benoa (17km) is full of water sport operators offering everything from wakeboarding, kitesurfing, waverunning and kneeboarding to Flyfish - a floating bed that gets dragged by a speedboat and flies up in the air. Also waterskiing, jetskiing, windsurfing, para-sailing, power boats, banana boats and glass bottomed boats.
Feel the adrenaline rush at Paintball Bali (4km) by participating in an adventure team sport like no other. The three-hectare compound with three independently themed courses is located on the Bukit and features the latest imported equipment from the US.
Hang around surfers in Bali and you will hear mention of Uluwatu, Padang-Padang, Impossibles, Bingin, Dreamland, Balangan, Nyang-Nyang and Green Ball - poetically named waves that break on shallow reefs creating long, long tubes. All of these world-class reefbreaks are located on The Bukit.
The glorious crescent-shaped Jimbaran Beach (10km) is home to a plethora of seafood warung; these simple cafes extend across the length of the beach and serve up the catch of the day.
