Perched at the top of a sheer 70-meter cliff above the thundering cerulean waves of the Indian Ocean, Banyan Tree Ungasan is steeped in the rich cultural heritage of Bali. While some luxury properties are content with a cosmetic nod to their surroundings, this is a place that invites guests to immerse themselves in the lore and traditions of the Island of the Gods. Its location near one of Uluwatu’s most sacred temples is hardly an accident; the resort draws both spiritual and aesthetic inspiration from this holy space. References to Balinese architecture are sprinkled throughout the pool villas, each of which is sumptuously outfitted with Balinese fabrics and intricate stone and wood carvings.
The resort’s stunningly picturesque surrounds and opulent interiors make for the ideal setting for romance. Far from the stresses of modern urban life, couples can enjoy one another’s company in absolute peace and privacy. Many choose to book a spa treatment for two and indulge in a sensual massage using traditional Balinese techniques and healing oils and herbs. Others choose to simply bask in the rays of the Indonesian sun by the breath-taking infinity pool.
Romance continues at the resort’s many dining options. Situated cliffside overlooking the water, the resort’s signature restaurant, Ju-Ma-Na, artfully combines French and Japanese flavors with exquisite results. The name comes from the Arabic words for “white pearl,” which fittingly describes the beauty of the place. For couples seeking a little more seclusion for an anniversary, a honeymoon, or even the perfect moment to pop the question, the resort can also arrange for a private cliffside dinner just for two. It’s all part of an invitation to deepen your experience of this mystical isle and indulge in a little luxury with that special someone.
