THE GUIDE TO ULUWATU ACCOMMODATION

In this guide, you will find the tips for the best Bukit and Uluwatu accommodation. Bukit has literally hundreds of accommodations to choose from. Hence, I have narrowed down a few of my personal favorites.

One of the best places to stay if you are looking to surf some ways are Binging or Ungasan. If you are looking for a sea view accommodations and budget is not an issue then Bingin is your best choice. However, if you are looking for a place to stay and you have a tight budget then Ungasan is your place.

This is the accommodation that should cater to all budgets, ie. from luxury travelers to budget backpackers. 

FYI, even though this travel guide is called The Guide to Uluwatu Accommodation it is about Bukit in general. I intentionally use Uluwatu as many people are not familiar with Bukit. Know what Bukit is? Great, you are one smart cookie. Don’t know what Bukit is? No problem I’ve got you covered. Bukit is the peninsula in the south of Bali and Uluwatu is just one of its many amazing spots.

HOME TO AND FAMOUS FOR SURFING

Both Uluwatu and Bukit is not only home and famous for surfing, but also for the most beautiful beaches in Bali. There are so many of them. Among my favorite are definitely Balangan, Bingin Beach, Dreamland, Uluwatu, Pandawa, and Greenball. Honestly, these are the ones you really want to visit. Because they’re the most beautiful with picture-perfect ocean and white sand. Consequently, visiting the beaches is ultimately the best thing to do in Uluwatu/ Bukit.


LIST OF THE BEST PLACES TO STAY

When the Uluwatu accommodation scene offers literally hundreds of places to stay, you might be wondering what is the best place to base yourself. Well, that’s a very good question. Above all, it will come down to your lifestyle and what you’re looking to do.

If you’re on a holiday and want beach resorts then your best choice would be the Nusa Dua area. Whereas if you’re someone who wants to do sightseeing and beach hopping and doesn’t mind staying in villas, guesthouses and hotels then Bingin would be your best choice. However, if you’re a surfer who’s looking to surf the most swell in Bukit then Ungasan would be your best option.
