The Ungasan
Villa Jamadara at The Ungasan Clifftop Resort

Bali is one of the most exciting cities in Indonesia. But if you want to get away from it all (literally), The Ungasan Clifftop Resort is the perfect resort for ultimate relaxation. Within the resort is a cluster of villas that overlook the sea. At The Ungasan, you can pick from either five-bedroom villas or one-bedroom villas. From the former, there are five different villas available, all of them taking on a distinct design from one another. We stayed at Villa Jamadara during our visit to Bali; read our review of the resort here.
