Amy Adejokun Section editor

One of the latest upscale establishments to open on the Bukit Peninsula, the Banyan Tree Ungasan prides itself on the high-quality amenities offered in its villas and the overall privacy guests enjoy here. Its location, perched on a cliff facing the sea, makes it the perfect holiday spot if you are looking for a luxury retreat away from any activity. Nevertheless, we did feel that the establishment lacks some warmth, in particular since the group of villas resembles more of a housing estate than a hotel and the pool areas are not exactly the most comfortable for relaxing in.

    Location 5.0 /10

    On the Bukit Peninsula, in the south of Bali. This strip of land is home to a large number of upscale establishments. Far from the very busy seafront resorts of Nusa Due and Benoa (where you'll also come across a multitude of construction sites), there are some establishments that have gone against the grain and nestled in at the edge of the cliffs. You may be put off at first sight, what with the sparse and dry vegetation, the steep cliff, the difficult access to the beach and the bland surroundings, but the view is simply divine. A car is essential for all journeys outside of the hotel, especially if you are planning on visiting the Tanah Lot temple in Uluwatu, the closest tourist attraction. It takes around 35 minutes to drive to the international airport, 40 minutes to reach Kuta, and around 1h 30m to reach Ubud.

    Accommodation 9.70 /10

    It must be said that when it comes to the 'villas combined with hotel services' concept, the guest rooms at the Banyan Tree are a cut above the rest of the establishments in the area. The hotel has a total of 59 villas for couples (one double room) and 11 for families (two bedrooms). Given that all of these have a surface area of close to 400m˛, guests will have plenty of space regardless of the category of accommodation they choose. The decor is modern, with attention paid to detail, and all of the usual amenities are available (air-conditioning, flat-screen television, CD player with a Böse speaker system, gourmet minibar, etc.) along with some extras, which notably include the kitchen area (equipped with a microwave, toaster and coffee machine). The guest rooms are very large, bright and face east, meaning you can watch the sunrise from your room if you're a morning person! What's more, in addition to the Indian Ocean, you'll also have a view of either the mountains or the gardens. The marble-clad bathrooms have a built-in bathtub, a separate shower and bay windows which afford a view outside. There's everything you need for a good daydream and a bubble bath. There's also an outdoor shower, which is a real treat! The area outside each villa, also very pleasant, features a large infinity pool (10 metres) with a whirlpool area, some vegetation, and a gazebo where guests can enjoy some relaxation.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The owners of the hotel thought big right from the start. This site, on top of a cliff over 70m high, covers an area of 25 acres. The majority of the hotel has thus been built in a way that allows guests to fully appreciate the view of the horizon. This applies to the common areas as well, which surround the very long main swimming pool. Indeed, this magnificent infinity pool lined with sculptures affords a panoramic view of the sea and the horizon. Gazebos have been built directly in the water, where you can also relax on sun loungers in the shape of leaves... It has to be said that the hotel spares no effort in setting itself apart from its competitors! However, there's a cruel lack of natural shade around the pool, meaning that it can get a little uncomfortable for guests when the sun is beating down. You can always seek refuge in the bar just beside the pool, though, which is even equipped with some sofas so that guests can enjoy the view from here. The common areas include several small shops and a restaurant, but little else, as the idea is that guests will spend most of their time tucked away in their private villas instead. Nevertheless, the hotel does propose a few activities and there's a library where guests can borrow DVDs. Families may be interested to know there is a kids club catering for children ages 3 to 11. Those who love to be pampered (with, body and face treatments, for example) should head for the spa. Well-designed, it has a total of 9 rooms where guests can pick from an exhaustive range of treatments (including massages, hydrotherapy, etc.). Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of natural light here. Finally, there is a well-equipped gym for those who like a good workout.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    Served in the main dining room, which opens out onto the central part of the hotel, the choices for breakfast are varied and plentiful. Both sweet and savoury options are available, including numerous pastries, various types of bread, dairy products, different kind of honey, etc. When it comes to savoury options, the Banyan Tree really surpasses itself, with hot dishes like tuna, grilled chicken on a bed of braised vegetables, bacon, beef and pork sausages, etc. There is even an Indonesian section offering a number of traditional local dishes, such as fish curry and mie goreng. As for the cold dishes, these include: sushi and sashimi, as well as smoked salmon, various cheeses, etc. A real feast! Sparkling wine is also available (Tunjung, a local brand), to give the illusion of champagne. The most impressive restaurant at the Banyan is Ju Ma Na. Perched on a cliff beside the Indian Ocean (the view from here is superb and can also be enjoyed from the terrace with a glass of wine in hand, served at the cocktail bar), this contemporary-style restaurant is as spacious (wonderfully high ceilings, lots of room between the tables) as it is bright (thanks to the huge bay windows and the omnipresent white in the decor). The menu is composed of fine contemporary cuisine made from fresh, seasonal products. For those who prefer healthy cooking, the Tamarind offers a selection of ŕ la carte vegetarian options. This restaurant is located beside the spa and a beautiful overflow pool with a view of... the nearby hilltops where construction work is underway in the background. So, admittedly, nothing to get excited about it. As for the Bambu restaurant, it proposes Asian specialities, combining Thai, Vietnamese and Balinese inspirations. Finally, it is also possible to dine in your villa.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The best the architects of the hotel could do for providing a access to the strip of sand servng as a beach was a series of steps. Despite the facilities available (deckchairs and parasols), the beach itself is rather unwelcoming (there is no natural shade from the blazing sun, the ground in the water is covered with rocks, and you have to wade quite far out to reach the deeper areas of water) and is even neglected in some parts (especially the cabin sheltering staff from the sun). However, if you're a budding adventurer, you may find it a lot more exciting. The high, steep cliffs stripped of all vegetation and the unobstructed views from this remote and unspoilt spot make this a place more suited to short walks and daydreaming than to swimming in the sea.

    To know

    True to its name, a very large banyan tree welcomes visitors at the entrance to the hotel.

      A luxury version of The Laguna, the St Regis Resort offers an exhaustive list of services (a spa, direct access to the beach, renowned cuisine, etc., only sporty types might have something negative to say). Privacy was kept in mind when the lush gardens were being laid out, with plenty of thickets and discreet nooks. Unfortunately, there aren't many guest rooms that offer a view of the sea but we did really like the superb villas grouped around an impressive swimming pool in the shape of a saltwater river. The superb kid's club will delight families.
