The Marvelous Island of Nusa Lembongan
Nusa Lembongan offers a vibrant tropical haven, humble tranquility, and a vast array of exciting activities to liven up your holiday.
Stretches of golden sand outline the coast, while the swaying coconut trees decorate the shore along with the lush greenery that blankets the surrounding cliffs and limestone hills.
Surfers may want to challenge themselves on some the island’s best waves like Lacerations, Shipwrecks and Playgrounds. While the floating excursions offer something exciting that will entertain the whole family, be it the banana boat, jet skis, or parasailing, or take a slow paddle with a kayak or an SUP. End the day by having a humble young coconut as a sunset drink while listening to the waves and feeling the breeze before taking your return journey back to the resort.
Stay one or two nights in Nusa Lembongan and fully explore the island. To reach the island you must drive to Sanur to catch a fast boat, which will take you to this beautiful and tranquil island.
Attracting visitors with its beauty and unique landscape, Taman Ujung Water Palace has become a great inspiration for modern architecture. Drive along the east coast of Bali to visit a beautiful water palace that is known as Taman Ujung. This gorgeous building set in a rather unique landscape surrounded by water was built in 1909 at the request of the King of Karangasem I, I Gusti Bagus Jelantik.
Located in Karangasem regency, on a plot that is set against the backdrop of the glorious Mount Agung and eastern shoreline, Taman Ujung Water Palace possesses an architectural feature that perhaps is quite rare to find.
This stunning palace owes its beauty to surrounding picturesque pools and an elegant combination of West meets East style as the result of a collaboration between Dutch architect van Den Hentz and Chinese architect Loto Ang, who also involved several undagi, or Balinese architects.
Inspired by its beautiful pillars, statues, lush scenery, and scenic features, our architects decided to emulate the water palace in designing The Ritz-Carlton, Bali. Each of our buildings represents the grandeur of Taman Ujung, combining contemporary style with the intricate flair of Balinese and Asian motifs. The surrounding ambience of our resort is also owed to the beauty of Taman Ujung’s scenic water garden. We offer its stunning royal expanse to you in our lush pond and garden landscape, as water plays important role for Balinese.
Pura Luhur Uluwatu (Uluwatu Temple)
This temple is one of the Sad Kahyangan, the six temples of the world. The other five are Pura Besakih, Pura Lempuyang Luhur, Pura Gua Lawah, Pura Batukaru, and Pura Pusering Jagat in Pejeng. Pura Luhur Uluwatu is dedicated to that aspect of Sang Hyang Widhi known as Siwa Mahakala, or Rudra, the dissolver of life.
Pura Luhur Uluwatu comes from the verb luhur, which literally means “above”, ulu means “end”, and watu means “stone”. Hence Pura Luhur Uluwatu also means a temple at the edge on the stone. Indeed you will find a beautiful scenery surrounding the temple, that perched on a steep heel. Every day a traditional Kecak Dance Performance takes place with a beautiful sun settings at 6 p.m. on the backdrop.
Sit back, relax and immerse yourself in the beauty that surrounds you. You can enjoy an art of meditation by the beach and feel at one with yourself as you explore the rhythm of your breathing. It is a perfect place to remove the unnecessary clutter from your life.
