We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Banyan Tree near Urgasan ,Bali and our overall impression was superb .
The villa was huge , the position over looking the sea ,and the quality of the food and service we found outstanding.
The only down side to the resort is it is on the southerly tip of the island, so is set some way from the hussle and bussle of the main resorts, but to be honest with the state of the traffic in Bali it was a relief to return to to this little corner of traquility .
If you are looking for an all action holiday with lots of nightlife this is not the resort for you, but if you are looking for stunning accomadation, great food and beautiful surroundins I could not recommend this enough .

Banyan Tree Ungasan could be anywhere. It's in Bali, of course. More specifically it's near Bali's best surf beach, a fairly short drive in the hotel car from the airport. But once you've driven through a few local villages, past the poverty that is visible from the air-conditioned seat of your vehicle du jour and into the gated luxury of this resort, it's a little too easy to forget where you are. But that's the whole point, I suppose.

If you've stayed at a Banyan Tree before then you're on comfortable, familiar ground here. We've stayed at Banyan Tree resorts in Thailand but this was our first time in Indonesia. The formula is the same. A welcome drink in the reception lounge while they check you in and explain the resort, etc, followed by a buggy tour on the way to your villa. Curiously, though, there was no butler offered as they do in Phuket or Koh Samui.

Our suite, a Sanctuary Cliff Edge Ocean Villa, was very nice. But the view wasn't quite as advertised. So we politely asked to move to another one. Now this is where it gets interesting. They didn't have another one available (I think there were only two) so we were upgraded. To the Presidential Villa. And this is why we can never return.

We discovered on check-out that this was a $6,000 per night villa. We've never paid that much before and doubt that we ever will, and anything less will be a let-down after this. The Presidential Villa had four pavilions covering more than 1,200 sqm, its own 25-metre infinity pool, a separate jet pool, snooker table and home theatre pavilion with a bar and karaoke room, massage room, grand piano, separate dining room and kitchen with adjoining staff quarters. In all it had three bedrooms, each in its own pavilion. There were four outdoor showers.

So we had a highly enjoyable, relaxing week at Banyan Tree Ungasan. Other reviews covered the beach (OK for a short visit, but not great), the restaurants (OK given the location, but not great) and the spa. I can't really comment much more on any of that because, save for a day trip to Ubud, we spent only the briefest amount of time outside the incredible villa.

Absolutely adult place… Don’t make mistake and take children with you on this holiday. If you want romantic holiday this is right place for that.
Hotel is perfect, service is excellent, villas are very comfortable and spacious….
Breakfast is excellent, very good food choice.
One advice to future visitors. Visit hotel beach … Small beach like picture from travel magazine. Few sun beds and little bar.
Good place for exploring south part of Bali. Take local taxi, that is very cheap, and visit Jimbaran, Kuta and Sanur.
All recommendation for this resort…

Banyan Tree Ugasana, is the most breath taking, picturesque resort I have ever stayed in. The Resort is very very well situated, excellently planned and very beautiful. The place is very well maintained, clean and the most friendliest, most efficient and accomodating people.

The view and setting from the Cliff side Villa, was just breath taking & amazing. Words fall short to explain the beauty of the place. The facilities provided are just extrordinary. The Dinning experience and the food is excellent. The Destination dinning is the best and the only one i have seen offered any where so far.

The management are very courtious and very very receptive to all your needs and make sure you have everything you want, Just the way you want it "Perfect".

The over all exeperience here has been by far the best.

I thank everyone at the Banyan Tree Ungasana for making our stay there great and memorable one.

I have stayed in the banyan tree hotel for 2 nights only thankfully and it was a disaster because of the noise caused by the stone mining site near the hotel , the digging noise used to start from around 7 am up to 3 or 4 am . So staying in the villa was no pleasureful experience. I complained to the staff and they justified that it is out of the control of the hotel and offered me a free dinner.
But actually even if they offer the villa for free It would not be even an acceptable solution but thankefuly I booked only 2 nights only. But to be fair if you eliminate the noise factor the hotel facilities, services, staff are all of exceptional quality ( like most of bali resorts).
Beware of the hotel location , that it might take qualitylong to get in and out from the resort. I believe there are better options in terms of quality ,location and value for money

The villas at Banyan Tree Ungasan do have all amenities which you can wish in a luxury resort. The bathrooms are breathtakingly designed in wonderful marble materials with large windows which enable a great view to garden and pool. Furthermore you find there a wonderful raindance shower and an outdoor shower. Never before we have found that spacious (beginning by 400 sqm) and nice furnitured suites where you can enjoy total privacy which is obviously one of the main philosophies of the management. For all needs you have your dedicated space. From the bedroom you find direct access to your private infinity pool - wow! The sun terraces offer a wide space for enjoying the great weather and the incredible view to the Indian Ocean. Of course you won't miss a private jacuzzy. Every room has a very cozy ambience. 
Especially the cliff edge villas offer a wonderful relaxing atmosphere where you hear only natural noises of animals and the big waves of the ocean which is 70m below.
The public areas are also very spacious and offer a wonderful SPA, three restaurants and an outstanding public infinity pool. All employees are very cordial and attentive. They seem to know in advance what the guest need. This is a great service experience! A special thanks goes to Mr Rahmat Julyanto who knows how to fulfill the expectations of the guests.
Experience asian kindliness literally at Banyan Tree Ungasan!
