Sundays Beach Club is a favourite venue on Bali’s Bukit peninsula. The beach club is part of The Ungasan Clifftop Resort and is located in the namesake village of Ungasan. It's where to go if you're seeking a beach retreat with a pristine stretch of sand and swimmable waves. Here you can also enjoy Mediterranean cuisine under breezy, thatched-roof shades with ocean views.
With five-star services easily at your call, Sundays Beach Club is a great option for a laid-back day on a clean and quiet coast, with fun beach activities to keep you and your family or friends busy. These include sea kayaking, beach volleyball, snorkelling and kite flying, while sun loungers under wide beach parasols provide perfect timeout spots.

The Beach Club
Sundays Beach Club’s only access is via a funicular, a two-minute descent between two hillsides that you embark a few steps from the resort’s main pool and lobby. As you step into the cabin, the beach club’s thatched roofs look like tiny pyramids below the valley’s greenery from this vantage point.
Upon entering the round bar, a team of hosts welcomed us while offering a drink at the bar, or a table at the main dining area adjacent to its semi-open kitchen. The rule here is ‘first-come, first-served’, which also applies for the parasols and sun loungers. Thus, it is best to come earlier to guarantee one of the coveted spots at the front.
Further to the east is Sunday Beach Club’s mini-lawn platform where you will find the best combination of shade and open views. At the end are Sundays' Bale, two raised seaside huts that offer elevated views and the ultimate private space for a full-day retreat.
The lapping waves hardly reach the base of the platform, and low tides reveal rock pools and a clear lagoon that leaves interesting collections of tropical marine life to explore. The 165m stretch of sand is walled between rock faces on each side, and is well supervised.
Dining at Sundays Beach Club
The casual restaurant offers a large variety, from light salads to main dishes and hearty pizzas. Choosing from the all-day menu, we had the penne carbonara and an icy granita of pomegranate and mint that helped keep us nice and cool. The little ones love the ‘Oreo crazy’ and ‘the bounty’ shredded coconut-topped milkshakes.
Order a pizza selection, and soon you’ll see the kitchen crew snap into action rolling fresh dough through the kitchen’s wide service window. The king prawn pizza, with red onion, capsicum, tomato and fresh coriander is a must-try. For a unique experience, try the Rendang pizza, comprising the Padang-style stewed beef with onion and mixed capsicum.
Later in the afternoon before the sky gradually turned to pink, we thought we'd try out the cocktail of the month, which was a passion fruit mojito to pair with the soothing sunset. Sunday Beach Club's wine of the month, a South African Mooiplaas Pinotage paired well with a tenderloin steak. They can also arrange private romantic candlelit dinners on the beach with a three-course menu and a bottle of champagne. Other nights, the well-equipped bar and DJs at their turntables help up the ante.
Those staying at the cliff-top resort are in for this privileged treat. For outside guests, its only downside is the rather far-off location... Nevertheless, that simply keeps the hefty crowds away.
