Built and owned as a joint venture and a bit of fun between mates, one being a high-profile but very private New York-based investment banker and the other one of the key partners in some of the worlds best casino resorts, rumour has it that this exclusive cluster of ultra-luxurious 5-bedroom clifftop villas in Bali's beautiful Uluwatu was originally built as a destination for the owners' private family holidays. As fortune would have it, for those looking for secluded luxury the immaculately renovated villas are also run as a boutique hotel. Perched in complete privacy atop the west-facing oceanfront cliff face, Australia is the next land mass beyond the vast sky-blue horizon. Expansive and luxurious villas are hidden behind lush pristinely manicured gardens, infinity pools glint and sparkle in the sun, luminescent turquoise waves roll to the shore below in sets from the distant horizon, the white umbrella tops of Sundays Beach Club only just visible against the white sand as small dots far below. The sun is high in the sky casting a delicious balmy heat, the fresh sea-salty breeze takes the sting out of its rays. With a personal butler on call 24/7 to answer any whim- it's easy to see why anyone would want to escape the world to the unique sanctuary offered at the Ungansan clifftop resort. 

Villa Jamadara at the Ungansan has a sleek and modern feel with traditional Balinese accents. With luxury accommodation and personalised service for up to 10 people the villa is available as a three- or four-bedroom option.

The infinity pool looks out over the limestone cliffs and azure turquoise ocean, all the way to the horizon. Luxurious architectural detail like sunken lounges, outdoor dining, elaborate chandeliers and other decedent accents make for a sleek yet relaxed ambiance. Perfect for families with expansive grassed areas for kids to play, there is no reason to leave your private villa sanctuary with signature in-villa spa experiences, dedicated nanny, world-class service, wellness and yoga, in-villa dining and more theatrical cliffside BBQ displays prepared by private chefs, freshly caught lobster, fish, and prawns, and all orchestrated for you by your personalised 24/7 butler service.  If you do get itchy feet and feel like exploring, your private driver is on call to take you to experience dinners at surrounding resorts, cultural experiences, volcano visits, or anything you fancy.  

Waking up to only the muted sounds of waves crashing on the shores at the foot of the cliff, surfers who have journeyed from across the globe to experience Bali’s best surf beach can be seen as small black dots riding on waves below, a delicious sea salty haze in the air promises a clear sunny day ahead. Walking out of the villa towards the day beds, morning sunlight sparkling and dancing on pool surface playfully,  butterflies’ flit above vibrant hews of purple and mauve bougainvillea. Stretching out on the sunbed in dappled rays, the expanse of ocean and pristine blue sky blurring into one another. The butler delivers the morning harvest, floating the ginormous rattan breakfast tray on the infinity pool as a novelty, the aroma of fresh coffee fills the fresh ocean air, the smell delicious.  Sitting poolside, we graze on fresh tropical fruit followed by traditional nasi goreng, the salty rice cutting through the sweetness of the fruit, an hour rolls by and more coffee, our plan for the day is lazing in the sun followed by signature in-villa spa treatments. 

We have a light late lunch and the day finishes off with delicious sunset cocktails, a cliffside BBQ prepared as a spectacular theatrical display, with uniformed chefs in crisp tall white hats at our villa. Against a backdrop of a purple and orange sky, the setting sun melts into the horizon, bright orange and red flames flash and snake up into the air, sweet smells of cooking seafood and spices fill the balmy night. Waves crash on the beach below and stars sparkle in the inky clear night sky above, the rest of the world is forgotten as holiday mode sets in.
