Normally, I hate Sundays. But when you are on holiday Sundays aren’t all bad – especially at Sundays Beach Club in Uluwatu. I had read about this place during my research and thought it would be the perfect place to go after our long-haul flight getting to Bali. As it turns out, the flight was stress-free, it was during the taxi ride to Uluwatu from the airport that the real stress began! (Read about it here). This was definitely the best beach club in Bali that I went to.
You arrive on top of the cliff and make your way down to the gondola lift which takes you down the cliff’s face to the beach below. The views from the top are absolutely incredible and the turquoise sea stretches out from the white sands of the beach club.
It costs 250K (about £14) to get in, but you receive a towel, credit towards food and drink and snorkel and stand up paddle included in the price.
It is so relaxing to be at the club and the people that work there are so attentive. There is a little wooden sign by your bean bag and if you want to order a drink then you turn it so that it is sticking up, which signals to the waiter that you would like to order. You give them your name and it is your tab for the day.
To drink I had the cashew and raw cocoa smoothie which had cashews, banana, cocoa powder, soy milk, honey and linseed in it. It was absolutely delicious and came in a long glass, so it lasted a long time. It was 85K IDR which is around £4.80.
For lunch I had the chilled white cut chicken salad with coconut, coriander, peanuts, lime, pomelo and seaweed oil which was 130 IDR which is around £7. It was really fresh and tasty.
This was the best start to our holiday after a long and stressful journey there. I also felt that our stuff was safe to leave by our chairs when we went for a swim or a stroll.
Get there early to get a day bed in a good position, although we were there in the off season in October, so it was not as crowded as we thought it would be. But I bet if you were to come here in the high season then it would be pretty busy.
At the end, you pay the rest of your tab by going to the kiosk with your Sundays card.
If I happen to find myself back in Uluwatu then I will definitely be coming back!
