Bali is the ideal destination for guests seeking a memorable holiday filled with one-of- a-kind experiences. This spiritual island is teeming with cultural diversity, rich landscapes and stunning seascapes; combined with a local culinary tradition bursting with the fresh flavors of nature; and warm, hospitable people. Banyan Tree Ungasan is the perfect base to discover the magic of Bali where action, relaxation and privacy are complemented by the service and comfort for which Banyan Tree is renowned.
An island retreat is not complete without experiencing the sea. Bali is renowned as one of the best surf spots in the world and surfing classes for all levels can be arranged by the resort. Unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean, best enjoyed from the resort’s beach offers guests the perfect motivation to practice their new found skill. For some inspiration, the island’s best surfers can be observed from the rocks at nearby Uluwatu.
A Volcano Climb
A three hour drive from Banyan Tree Ungasan brings guests to the site of local volcanoes Gunung Agung and Mount Batur. Guests can opt to view the volcanoes from afar or hike to an ascent of 1,717 meters. From the village of Toya Bunkah, the average climb takes between two to three hours. Thrill seekers are recommended to start the climb at dawn to experience a spectacular view of the sunrise from the peak, as well as the impressive views of Batur Lake, over the lava fields.
Relax and unwind
After an active day, guests can choose to pamper themselves at the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Ungasan. With treatments using exfoliating and moisturising products developed using indigenous Balinese plants; inspired by traditional Indonesian techniques, couples can benefit from enhanced energy flow and a rejuvenated spirit.
