If you are looking to escape to Uluwatu for some surf, yoga, and spa R&R, check out our fave Bingin Beach accommodation options, with private bungalows, ocean views, and infinity pools.
Bingin Beach is definitely a place for your Bali hit list! Located in the South of Bali, just ten minutes away from the famous Uluwatu Temple, [which is another must-visit], it is one of the island’s most spectacular beaches. Found at the bottom of the Uluwatu cliffs, it is a hefty climb down to get there but believe us when we say it is totally worth it. You will be greeted by white sand, a glistening ocean, surfer’s in the background catching waves, and a number of boutique and affordable hotels and cafes that line the beach. Our recommendation is to stay for the weekend and really soak up the stunning settings. So whether you are staying for a surf trip, a romantic stay with ocean view, or just to relax in the laid-back atmosphere, here are our fave spots for an affordable stay at Bingin Beach.
The Temple Lodge
The Temple Lodge is perched on the top of the white cliffs, offering incredible sea views of the ocean and majestic volcanoes beyond. Relaxation are paramount at The Temple Lodge – they invite you to partake in daily yoga, a spot of pampering at their spa, or relaxing in their infinity pool. Foodies will love the choice of cuisines here too, including vegetarian, ayurvedic, macrobiotic, Indian, Balinese and Italian – their forte! The food is organic, and the fish is caught daily and picked up from the fish market down the road.
Stay in one of their bungalows, where each is slightly different, so whether it’s a private lap pool, courtyard or ocean view you can find something that will suit your taste. We are crushing hard on the Coral Cave – a suite which is literally carved out of the coral cliff side! You can enjoy complete privacy here, and breath-taking views to the horizon. Up the romance-factor and enjoy a night cap on the cushioned balcony that looks out to the ocean.

If you are here on an extra special romantic holiday, check into tropical luxury at the Honeymoon Bungalow.
