Spectacular panoramic views, powerful waves and sacred temples; Uluwatu is home to all of these things and more. It is the most beautiful and popular area on Bali’s Bukit peninsula, best known for its stunning landmark, cliff-top temple. The hilly limestone region is home to Bali’s most scenic luxury villas and resorts, with hidden resorts on towering cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean and magnificent sunsets. The cliff-fringed coastline is a sanctuary and home to hidden beaches and world-class surf breaks; a mecca for wave-riders from all over the world.
From the moment you land in Bali, we will have a driver waiting to bring you to the stunning south coast and the tranquil Uluwatu Surf Villas. Six unique luxury boutique Villas, two Private Suites and an authentic Balinese Bungalow all in a spacious, cliffside setting with private pools and the most beautiful views of Uluwatu and its legendary sunsets. There are staff on-site at all times, with full housekeeping and 24-hour security.
A beautifully crafted, open-air yoga pavilion sits beneath the large lawn full of towering palm trees, where jiu-jitsu mats will be ready for us to roll, overlooking a private beachfront and an endless ocean horizon.
This retreat is guaranteed to be an exclusive and intimate affair with no more than 36 guests.
The Villas are situated along the cliff front and are comprised of three bedrooms. Each villa is fully serviced and features a traditional thatched roof, coconut pillars with large sliding glass doors to take advantage of the spectacular view over the Indian Ocean.
One master bedroom (King Bed) with en-suite bathroom, and two guest bedrooms (Oceanfront Twin and Back Twin) each with en-suite showers and a joining bathroom, a spacious living and dining area with an open-plan kitchen, a swimming pool and an open “Bale” (thatched pavilion) with comfortable lounge chairs overlooking the pool. The open-plan living/dining room is furnished with a dining table for six guests and comfortable sofas with cushions. Fans and large sliding doors opening to the terrace and pool guarantee permanent ventilation.
Outdoors on the covered terrace and in the bale are deck chairs, table, comfortable lounge chairs and over-sized cushions. All villas are private and feature expansive views over the Indian Ocean.

Guests will enjoy daily training sessions in both gi and no-gi jiu jitsu in our purpose built pavillion overlooking Uluwatu's endless horizons. You will be able to not only learn from Gezary Matuda and Bruno Malfacine, but also spend quality time with these two world-renowned practitioners understanding their games and mindsets, their approach to training and a little of their personal history that has helped make them the champions that they are today.
Aside from all the surfing, jiu-jitsu and yoga, sunrises and sunsets, there is a whole host of other things to do on the island. You can go beachcombing; fishing; swimming; local sampan (canoe) paddle; take out a SUP; or enjoy a massage on request. But really, the hardest decision you’ll have to make for the duration of the camp is whether to roll; surf; eat; play; or relax. If there is any other activity you wish to do in this beautiful location, simply contact our crew and we will help you out.
