Close from many restaurants, cafes and beach clubs. The Bukit is developing fast, and we now have places and entertainment alike the busy Seminyak and Canggu can provide. But don’t expect has many shops and restaurants.
Close to everything you need. And far enough to be away from the crowds. Surrounded by jungle
Perched 50 meters above sea level on the cliffs of Uluwatu – El Kabron Spanish Restaurant Cliff Club has the most Secluded Sunset on the Island Of The Gods.

Bringing a touch of the Mediterranean to Bali with authentic and genuine Spanish, rustic flavors of home cooked cuisine. Very “Instagrammable”.

To Padang Padang beach on low tide. From Bingin Beach, when facing the ocean this will be on your left side. You can also reach Balangan, turn right this time when facing the ocean.
It is a bustling spot for locals, business owners and tourists alike, who visit in the early morning to get their hands on the freshest seafood around. With the traditional colorful boats crowding along the shore in the clear morning light and the lively flock of sellers and customers, it’s a spectacular sight.
If you arrive at around 6 am, you can see the incredible sight of these vivid Jukung (traditional Balinese canoes) returning to shore after a night at sea. The market is made up of three sections: a wholesale area, an area for selling to the general public, and directly on the beach you can find local fishermen selling their wares.

La Baracca is my favorite one in the neighborhoods. You will require a mean of transportation to get there. It is just before the entrance to Uluwatu paving lane (to the Single Finn) on the right hand side of the road to Uluwatu from the villas.
Italian food but not only pizzas and pastas (although those ones are really really god) Service is quick, which is pretty unusual in Bali, and most of the time everybody is getting its plate at the same time. Scooter 10 minutes.
Its at walking distance, on the road to Drifter Surf Shop.
Its an Italian Restaurant (doesn’t sound like), good pastas, good pizzas.
You can also order and take away if you prefer eating at the villas.
Nice team, busy place ! Love it.
Located at the corner of the road to Uluwatu. Only for breakfast (all day) lunch now. In a nice garden on the back behind the shop. Good, healthy food, takes a while sometimes. Movie nights !
“You’ll see it when you believe in it.”It is written on the wall. They invite you to sit by the sign and take a picture with these words, to remind you and your friends of the power of belief. They could have never created The Loft and Vida without truly believing in the capability of their team and the desire of their customers for a inviting & elegant space to socialize over incredibly tasty food. They hope their philosophy can impact every customer and team member to know that you’ll only see whatever you want happening
if you first truly believe it will.
