Most of the beachgoers who are in Bali for a quick getaway tend to stay around the Nusa Dua and Seminyak for their beach clubs and restaurants. But half an hour is the heavenly wonderland for those who are looking to escape the busy beaches. Ulu Cliffhouse in one corner of Uluwatu is one of the newer beach clubs looking to redefine the beach club experience.

The beach club has an open-air restaurant facing panoramic views of the sea, a 25m long infinity pool, and even a staircase down to the beach. Uluwatu used to be popular amongst the serious surfers thanks to its strong waves, but is now becoming a hotspot for those looking for something else. The ocean deck that can only be accessed via a winding stairway down has a small hidden bar where you can revel in the sunset.

Soak in the sun on sunbeds or lounges as you sip on their refreshing cocktails, feeling like you’re floating in the skies. Tiki cocktails are aplenty on the cocktail menu, which features a mix of fruity creations and old classics. The Twisting My Melon Man is perfect for sharing and Insta-photos, as the vodka or white rum cocktail comes in an actual whole watermelon! Other refreshing cocktails include the Mojito Kelapa, where your classic mojito is mixed with a touch of coconut, and the Jalapeno Margarita, a spicy cocktail to heat things up. Wines and spirits are also on selection, plus a whole range of cold-pressed juices, kombucha, and body tonics for the health-conscious.

Ulu Cliffhouse has both a restaurant and a bar, featuring a menu created by Chef Diego Munoz. Expect a smorgasbord of the freshest seafood and Peruvian flavours from the globetrotting chef, who loves experimenting with cuisines and local produce. If you’re planning on hitting the beach club for a meal, its better to dine indoors. Otherwise, grab a table on the daybeds as the views there are the best.

The mains are the stars of the menu, with ceviche and whole fishes. The Red Snapper Tiradito is a marrying of spicy and nutty tastes, with thin slices of raw fish marinated in a blend of hoisin mayonnaise, ginger, chili, and sesame oil. Don’t leave out the Fried Calamari & Snapper, where you get both seafood fried to crisp perfection and paired with a sweet potato puree, red onion and coriander salsa.

Fill up your tummies with some bites and small plates. The Guacamole With Totopos is an addicting side that we just couldn’t stop eating, kind of like the basic avocado and toast that healthy eaters like to start their mornings with, but the nacho version with toppings. Even their fries are on another level compared to your usual salted fries, seasoned with paprika and black pepper. Every single dish, down to the sides has been designed to complement the laidback lifestyle of Bali where you can take your time to enjoy all the nuances.

The beach club has a pretty solid lineup of DJs, both house and international curated by legendary music producer Neil McLellan, to keep you entertained. Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, and Hot Since 82 are just some of the big names to grace the decks! For performers, Ulu Cliffhouse even has its own recording studio because the oceanic views are very inspirational for new tracks. On the weekends, be prepared to vibe at their day-to-night parties all day long.

As if that’s not enough, there’s a spa right next door for some last-minute pampering and a boutique store just in case you forgot your beach essentials. With such chill vibes, you might not want for anything other than a top-up.

Ulu Cliffhouse is located at Jalan Labuan sait, Jl. Uluwatu No.315, Pecatu, Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
