Our visit to Sundays Beach Club Uluwatu Bali was a lot of fun with the kids. During our stay at Sea Shanty Villa Jimbaran in 2017, I celebrated my birthday and decided on a morning at Sundays Beachclub in Uluwatu. We had a fantastic time enjoying one of the best beaches in Bali while also having access to shade, food, drinks and beach activities like snorkeling. It is because of all the facilities available that I’m going to make a big statement, it is the best beach in Bali for families that want facilities and western comforts while enjoying a day out. This unfortunately does come with a price tag so if a cheap beach club is more your thing, Sundays Bali is probably not for you.

How to get to Sunday Beach Bali
To get to Sundays beach club you need to get a driver to take you to The Ungasan Resort which is a group of luxury villas set high on a cliff top on the Bukit Peninsula. We arranged for our driver to wait for us and had his phone number to message when we were done. The other option is a taxi and then just ask the staff when you leave to call you another taxi. The view on arrival is gorgeous and we were made to feel very welcome even with 5 kids running around. You walk down a series of steps past the infinity pool that Sundays Beach Club guests have access to. Here you pay for your tickets to access the beach club and then ride the complimentary inclinator down the cliffs to the beach club.
You can now not book online and Sundays is a first come first serve basis. So if you are wanting to guarantee a spot get there early.

Tips on a day at Sundays Bali Beach Club
- There are quite a few stairs to get down to the beach even with the inclinator. We did have quite a few hot and bothered kids by the time we reached the top so it might be best to plan a swim at the pool at the top as incentive to get them up!
- Take plenty of water as they charged us nearly $5aud for a 600ml bottle of aqua. We had taken some but had run out!
- When we went to hire snorkel gear they asked us for ID which we did not have. They take your credit card as guarantee for the food and drink bill so I had nothing else with me. It was fine and in the end they let us use it but taking a drivers license would be a good idea.
- No need to take towels as they supply them so less to carry in the heat.
- Get there early if you want to get a front row bean bag or lounge chair. We arrived at the reception area at 9:15am and were down at the beach club selecting a spot 20 minutes later. There were still a couple of bean bags left after we selected ours but these were gone by 10am.
- Take plenty of sunscreen! There is shade but the kids spent so much time in the water and sand that we were constantly reapplying.
What to do at Bali Sundays Beach Club?
We spent 3.5 hrs at Sundays which was a great amount of time to relax, eat and play in the water. They had buckets and spades for the kids to play with in the sand making it a kid friendly beach club Bali style. They all loved having a go at the Stand Up Paddle board and snorkeling.
Activities at Sundays beach club Ungasan:
- Stand Up Paddle Board
- Supplied buckets and spades
- Spa bale for a massage
- Free WIFI
- Sunset beach bonfires each night
- Live music
Food and drinks at Sundays Uluwatu
We enjoyed our food and the kids loved the kids menu including the ice cream at the end! The food is not ultra cheap but considering they have to get all the food down to the beach it’s not too bad! Every day from 5pm-6:30pm half price beer and pizza. This does have some conditions but worth checking out.

You can also book just to enjoy dinner at Sundays, check out their website for more details.
Would we return to Sundays Uluwatu?
Yes! We had a fantastic time and would love to go back to enjoy the sunset. I can see why it is often called the best beach club in Bali especially with kids. If we were on a really tight budget it wouldn’t be the place to go but for a special day out is a must.
