Bukit’s New Gem
Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, home for the famous surf break Uluwatu, was first brought into the world’s limelight after being featured in the iconic surf movie directed by Alby Falzon and David Elfick, titled “Morning of the Earth” in 1971. Ever since then, the area draws a huge attention that makes tourists alike fall in love with it. Fast forward to this day, apart from the waves, Uluwatu also presents a stunning Kecak dance performance with a sunset view in the background, which is a true beauty in the eye of the beholder. Now, the surrounding areas in the Bukit slowly reveals their own charm.
It is Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, a five-star property by the Radisson brand, which becomes the latest kid on the block to open its door since the end of February 2018. The elegant design of the hotel speaks for itself, and is complemented with an inspiring concept – the hotel is environmentally conscious, a value that becomes the core of their day-to-day operation.

A state-of-the-art in-room sensor system automatically turns off the AC when the balcony door is open or when guests leave the room. Clearly, this is one of the hotel’s measures to save energy.
In the culinary department, the top-notch Filini Italian Restaurant is the hotel’s pride and joy.
