    The hotel group’s 16th opening, Six Senses Uluwatu, is just the beginning, with plans to triple the brand in size over the next five years…

    Sharing the same spectacular views over a rugged cliff edge as the island’s famed Uluatu Temple, Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali is now open, adding another exciting destination to the group’s portfolio. Drawing upon the renowned Six Senses commitment of providing top-tier facilities wedded to environmental responsibility, the resort and spa has been thoughtfully designed and, when combined with the innovative spirit of the owners, PT Cahaya Warna Prima, has resulted in a rare development.

    True to Six Senses’ inimitable style, Six Senses Uluwatu, designed by PTI Architects and Blink Design Group is home to 28 Sky Suites, 62 one-­bedroom villas and seven two-bedroom villas that draw upon the local culture, embrace nature, and offer every creature comfort.  The ultimate in Six Senses accommodations is the expansive and beautifully-appointed Retreat Villa which sits on a prominent knoll with sweeping views of the ocean and resort beyond.  There are also two restaurants, a pool bar, a restaurant with a Chef’s Table and cooking school, and an extensive organic garden is also planned.

    In this famed island environment so deeply rooted with wellness and personal care, the Six Senses Spa is right in its element, with the unmatched vistas providing a calming and tranquil setting.

    An event lawn enhances the facilities with a beautiful ballroom, two meeting rooms and a wedding pavilion. The resort’s own Balinese temple creates a tranquil setting and present the true essence of the island’s deep cultural beliefs.  Six Senses Uluwatu will include an Experiences Centre that can arrange visits to everything that this legendary island has to offer, from sightseeing excursions, to cultural events plus over and underwater activities.

    The coastline is also one of the top places on the island to bear witness to spectacular sunsets with sweeping panoramas out to the Indian Ocean. 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 metres 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 properties share a leadership commitment to community, sustainability, wellness and design, infused with a touch of quirkiness. Whether an exquisite island resort, mountain retreat or urban hotel, the enduring purpose is to help people reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them.
