Whether you are a foodie looking to savour delicious Indonesian fare or an adventure seeker in search of activities that will bring your soul to life, Renaissance Bali Uluwatu has it all. In this article, we will share more reasons why you should indulge in a paradise stay at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa.
10 Reasons to Indulge in a Paradise Stay at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa
1. Catch a wave in Bali’s most renowned surfing spot
Nestled on the southernmost tip of Bali, Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa is sure to provide you with breathtaking sights that soothe your soul. You will not find any other place on the island where the sky and the sea blend so charmingly together.
In addition to the views, Uluwatu is Bali’s most famed surfing spot, so if you want to catch a wave, then this is the place to be. It only takes a short car ride to travel from Renaissance Bali Uluwatu to Pandawa Beach where you can hit the waves. There are also Agro Parks and Fish Markets (a visit to Jimbaran is a must when you are in Bali!) nearby so you will have the complete Bali experience once you stay in Renaissance Bali Uluwatu.
2. Start your stay with refreshing afternoon tea and snacks
As soon as we checked in, we were left in awe of the breathtaking Uluwatu scenery. Our arrival at the resort was met with an astounding view that we were able to fully appreciate while enjoying afternoon tea at the R Bar in the lobby. It was such a great experience having coffee and treats with our friends against the beautiful backdrop of Uluwatu. The hip and stylish vibe of the R Bar also added to the overall delightful experience.
As the night falls, the atmosphere of the R Bar transforms into a more romantic setting. The clear blue skies become a dark canvas filled with twinkling stars. Afternoon tea becomes inventive cocktails, courtesy of Renaissance Bali Uluwatu’s talented team of mixologists. Do try unique cocktails such as the Ulu Sunset (inspired by Bali’s melancholic hues around dusk) and Apple Bliss if you are into tropical flavours. You may even order some light bites to go along with your cocktails!
3. Take in mesmerising ocean views from the balcony of your luxurious hotel suite
At Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, you can take in the mesmerising ocean views right from the comfort of your hotel suites. The resort boasts some of the most luxurious hotel suites in the entire Uluwatu, each with its own variation of floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, soothing rain showers, and breathtaking Uluwatu ocean or verdant garden views. These options cater to both couples and families alike.
For the most luxurious experience, the Presidential Villa is an exceptional choice, offering three capacious bedrooms, panoramic ocean views, a private balcony, and a private infinity pool. If you are travelling with your family, the Larger Suite is also an excellent option for a comfortable stay in Uluwatu.
4. Unwind in an expansive infinity pool overlooking the ocean
Being situated in Uluwatu, you can only expect that the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu will have its very own expansive infinity pool. This is probably the resort’s main highlight as it offered sweeping views of the forest and ocean against the backdrop of clear blue skies. Our entire team of 20 pax thoroughly enjoyed spending time by the pool, and we practically spent every moment of our three-night stay at the Renaissance lounging by the infinity pool. The pool was surrounded by a sun deck, complete with plenty of rattan loungers to relax comfortably and soak the sun in. It can get quite hot, so be sure to grab a refreshing cocktail from the Pool Bar to enjoy while lounging around. They have a 1 for 1 cocktails during happy hour so do watch out for that!
If you are travelling with kids, you will be pleased to know that the pool also features a large shallow area where our little ones can safely frolick around. Our kids, Ally and Aaron, absolutely loved spending time in the pool!
For those who prefer quieter private time, you can also go to the Jungle Pool, a smaller pool further away from the crowd. With a view of the lush green hills on one side and the distant coastline on the other, it is the perfect spot to unwind by the water. Additionally, there are sun loungers surrounding the pool for those who want to catch up on their reading while enjoying the serene ambience.
5. Play to your heart’s content
Of course, the stunning pool is not all that there is at the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu. In fact, we had such a lovely time trying out so many things inside the resort! As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed with fresh coconuts and a note from the manager wishing that we had a fantastic time during our stay. And true enough, we had the grandest time!
At Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, we got to play to our heart’s content (yes, adults can play too!). Water polo was incredibly fun, especially since we got to play amongst ourselves. The staff helped to organise a water polo against other guests as well, which was also fun as we got to meet new people. There were also darts, ping pong, card games, and many many more activities that brought out the inner child in us! With all these extras, we must say that the Renaissance is a great place to stay if you are travelling with a large group. They really make sure that you will not get bored throughout your stay.
6. Find your inner artist at Clay Craft Pottery Studio
Once all the rush from the outdoor activities has settled down, you can then have an art session
at Clay Craft Pottery Studio – the resort’s very own clay studio. Our team had a blast taking pottery classes and creating custom bowls, cups, and more which we hope would last for many years to come. We have been to many hotels and resorts in Bali, and this experience is definitely unique to the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu. Not to mention that the staff from the clay studio was really lovely too!
7. Delight your palate with authentic Balinese cuisine
Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa not only offers bars but also features a range of specialty restaurants to cater to your taste buds. There is Clay Craft (yes – the resort’s art studio doubles as a restaurant too!) for international dishes, but what we especially recommend is the food at Double Ikat. Delight your palate with authentic Indonesian cuisine; their Babi Guling, Ikan Bakar, Sate Sampi Lalah Manis are absolute must-tries! For dinner, Marriott members have a 15% discount, so be sure to sign up for that.
Furthermore, breakfast at the resort boasts an extensive spread of dishes. We particularly loved the local Indonesian dishes, especially Daal with Roti.
8. Indulge in a day of beachside bliss at Roosterfish Beach Club
It will not be a complete Bali experience if you have not visited at least one beach club. Fortunately, there is a free shuttle from the resort to one of the best beach clubs in Bali – the Roosterfish Beach Club. Located at Pandawa Beach, Roosterfish Beach Club guarantees a fun day under the sun for guests of all ages. And since the beach club is also owned by the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu, you can only expect that their food, drinks and overall service would also be amazing. As the sun sets, live performances and DJs fill the air at Roosterfish, making it the perfect place to relax and enjoy quality time with your loved ones.
9. Soothe your mind and soul at The Spa at Renaissance
With everything above, it is safe to say that you will never run out of fun things to do while staying at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa. After all the fun and adventure, you might feel exhausted and have sore legs from all the walking and other touristy activities. That being said, why not pamper yourself with a complete day spa experience at the resort’s very own spa? Rejuvenate your mind and body and enjoy the Renaissance’s mixology counter, range of relaxing treatments, couples’ massages, sauna, and steam room.
For those who want to exercise, the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa also boasts a fitness centre equipped with top-of-the-line equipment. Often, it gets hard to get back to our usual exercise routine while on vacation, but you will not have to worry about that at all at the Renaissance as you will get to enjoy a stunning view as you work out. Who cares about a little sweat when you can gaze at such breathtaking views? What’s even better is that the fitness centre is open 24 hours, so you can also visit here if you want to stargaze while running on a treadmill. Whether you are an early riser or a night owl, there is almost no excuse for you not to follow your usual exercise routine while vacationing at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa.
10. Keep your little ones entertained at The Tree House
Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa may allow you to unleash your inner child with all the activities that you can do while staying in the resort. But let us not forget our kids, shall we? The resort also offers an array of fun options for our little ones, making it a family-friendly destination. There is a children’s pool plus a dedicated Kids’ Club called The Tree House.
The Tree House has a different theme each day, ranging from art to water playing to sports and adventure days so your little ones will also never run out of things to do while staying at the Renaissance. Other activities include kite painting and flying, Balinese dance lessons, music classes, and many more. For older kids, there are modern console games and movie nights available. And of course, there are child-friendly snacks and refreshing drinks always at the ready for everyone too!
With the wide variety of things to do at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, you are sure to make the most of your Bali holiday. But ultimately, the best thing about this resort is getting to stay in such luxurious, comfortable hotel suites while looking through the incredible Uluwatu landscape. This 5-star resort is a paradise for families and groups of friends alike, and our team of 20 people can vouch for its charm. We had a really lovely stay!
