Six Senses has unveiled plans to develop a
resort in the southwest of Bali at Uluwatu, a 35-minute drive from
Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The resort is set atop a rugged cliff,
sharing the spectacular ocean views with the island’s famed
Uluwatu Temple. Six Senses Bali will include 28 sky villas, 62
onebedroom villas and 7 two-bedroom villas.
The ultimate escape will be the expansive
Retreat Villa which will sit on a prominent knoll with sweeping
views of the ocean and overall resort.
Two restaurants, a pool bar and a specialty
restaurant with chef’s table, cooking school and extensive organic
garden are planned.
Situated on a 30-acre (12-hectare) site, the
project will be completed in two stages. The first phase includes
the resort which rests on 16 acres (6.5 hectares) while phase two
includes 60 residential villas available for purchase including
luxurious three-bedroom family retreats.
“Six Senses is
delighted to work with PT Cahaya Warna Prima on the Uluwatu
development. The location is incredible and the design approach
perfect for our brand. Innovative and fresh, this project will
offer a new dimension in wellness for active and health-minded
travelers,” said President Bernhard Bohnenberger of Six Senses
Hotels Resorts Spas.
In addition to a Six Senses Spa, on-site activities will include
a vast central pool and a gym. An event lawn will enhance the
facilities of a ballroom, two meeting rooms and a
Six Senses Bali is scheduled for completion by the
end of 2017.
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 250 feet (70 meters) 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
