I Stayed in Uluwatu for a Week and This is What I Found

Alexandra Ardelean

Uluwatu has always been one of my favorite places in Bali and Southeast Asia. My dream has been to live here, as it's a small surf town with amazing beaches. However, it's always lacked good restaurants, nice food, gyms, and other amenities for long-term living.

I've been a digital nomad in Bali and Southeast Asia for almost three years now, and I've lived in Canggu for the last year. I wanted to see if Uluwatu had improved and if it was a place I could live long-term.

Je suis à Dreamland Beach, qui est une de mes plages préférées à Uluwatu.

Uluwatu Has Developed Over the Last Year

Uluwatu has developed over the last year, and there are more activities like paddle. There are several places for paddle, more gyms, spas, saunas, etc. However, there are fewer open paddle games than in Canggu.

The place I go to for paddle also offers ice pad and sauna. It's not as popular as similar places in Canggu, but it's still nice to have these options.

Cependant, je trouve la location de raquette et de pagaie chère ici par rapport à Canggu.

Warung Local - Bon rapport qualité prix pour la nourriture indonésienne

I went to Warung Local for lunch today. It's a good value for Indo food at around seven dollars for two dishes and a smoothie. The food was good, but not exceptional.

Les autres restaurants à Uluwatu semblent plus chers que ceux de Canggu.

Klapa Resort - Une Bonne Option Près de Dreamland Beach

I'm staying at Klapa Resort near Dreamland Beach. It's 40-60 dollars per night with an ocean view and rooftop pool. The resort is older but still a good option with some drawbacks like Wi-Fi quality.

I'm looking for long-term living options within a budget of 600-800 dollars per month. The room isn't exceptional but has an ocean view and is comfortable with a spacious bathroom. The Wi-Fi isn't the best but works adequately for work.

There are many new sunset bars in Uluwatu. Single Fin is a classic spot to watch surfers and the sunset on Sundays. However, it's busy on Sundays, making it difficult to find space to watch the surfers and sunset.

Dreamland Beach is also a nice spot to watch the sunset with a super nice vibe and plenty of space.

There are many new sunset bars in the Tullabon beach area besides Single Fin. I enjoy watching surfers while having a Bintang at one of these bars. It's less crowded than Single Fin.

I went to Singelfinn today for two pizzas for one promo. The pizza was good, and I enjoyed the sunset, live music, and the overall Uluwatu vibes.

Habitat Village - Gym & Spa

I visited Habitat village today. It offers gym, spa, sauna, ice bath, restaurants, accommodation etc., but the gym isn't fully ready yet during my visit.

Bamboo Fitness is another gym option that looks great but lacks sauna and ice bath. Monthly prices are also high without these amenities.

Rattan is the next place I'm staying at. It's well located with good design at a reasonable price of 30-40 dollars per night.

It feels more homey than a hotel but lacks the beachfront location. It's still within driving distance of anywhere in Uluwatu.

Bamboo Fitness a un joli design mais manque de certaines commodités comme un sauna et un bain de glace que je veux. Ils offrent des cours et ont un café sur place. Les prix quotidiens sont abordables mais les prix mensuels sont élevés sans sauna et bain de glace.

Samtai recovery spa offre un espace piscine pour se détendre, un bain de glace, un jacuzzi, un grand sauna pour 13$ par visite.

Vivre à Uluwatu vs Canggu:

  • Paddle : Location de raquette plus chère
  • Restaurants: Plus cher
  • Hébergement: Prix similaire
  • Commodités: moins développé
  • Coucher de soleil: Plus de monde

Canggu est mieux pour vivre à long terme en raison des coûts plus bas et des commodités plus développées comme les gymnases et les restaurants.

Uluwatu est mieux pour les séjours de courte durée en raison de ses belles plages et couchers de soleil.

Si vous cherchez une ambiance de ville de plage tranquille avec moins de touristes ou de nomades numériques, Uluwatu pourrait être mieux pour vous que Canggu.
