Six Senses in Bali.
I am a Six Senses fan. The experiences we have had at Six Senses resorts in Thailand and Vietnam has been beyond. Obsessed with their “luxury barefoot” concept, their determination to be sustainable, local and a beauty (but subtle) aesthetics.
Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali is in Pecatu in the southernmost tip of Bali which is the home of “Pura Uluwatu”, the sacred temple considered one of the island’s core spiritual pillars. Ulawatu is a somewhat new area to tourists visiting Bali, and most resorts and beach clubs here are very high end. The beautiful cliff-top Balinese-inspired Uluwatu resort has an outstanding view of the ocean, where ever you are at the resort, and is build in local limestones creating its very own architectual DNA, however all details remains true to the Six Senses feel and aesthetics.
So, when talking about this resort, I also have to mention their wellness program, which is next level. The resort offers a wellness screening to their guests, from where a full wellness program can be laid out for you depending on the screening result; what food (from the menu) to choose, which drinks to drink, what spa-treatments to choose and which kind of training yoga to go for. Did I mention: next level. As the staff themselves say, they probably can’t change a persons life on a visit and a wellness-program, but they can show the path and help get this started. My husband and I both tried the screening and it was so interesting and even though we did learn anything revolutionary, it was still so refreshing to have it put into black and white. For anyone visiting Six Senses Ulawatu, I would recommend to do this screening and let it lead you from then.
We also tried something else on this visit for the first time…an in-villa dinning. Wow it was an absolute beautiful dinning experience and also really nice for a as a family to have it at the villa, just private and the kids could run around in between meals. We had a barbeque and it came with full set-up of chef, deco, waiter and all. That being said, the restaurant was also really nice and relaxing. Only one was available when we were there. The resort just opened its doors in June, and we came in July, so 2 of the 3 restaurants on ground wasn’t done yet. This also meant that not many guests had checked in yet, so we have all the space in the world by the pool and elsewhere on the resort ground as well.
This Six Senses also has an open air wedding chapel, from where we saw a whole group of large sea turtles down in the ocean beneath us. It was quite amazing.
Oh Six Senses, how we love staying with you, always. The kids especially loved the free, all-day, homemade ice cream shop and the rides with the buggy cars back and forth from our villa down to the dinning/pool areas. Thank you for spoiling us and thank you for having us, we really hope to come back some day and do it all over again.
