JOURNEY OVERVIEW

Welcome to Bali!

Our trip commences on November 13th, 2022. You will arrive in Bali where you will be picked up at the airport by a private car and driven to our hotel in the heart of Ubud where we will be waiting to receive you. We will be staying at a Luxury Style Balinese resort. After checking into your hotel you will refresh, relax and meet up with the rest of the travellers. In the evening, we will all gather for a welcome dinner. 

A Balinese Cultural Immersion.

It’s a long trip for most of us to Bali. So this will be a relaxing morning where you can enjoy a massage, a floating breakfast in the pool or a flower bath in your room or the resort’s spa; just let us know what you prefer. The afternoon will be spent visiting the Art Village in Ubud where you can get to admire and shop traditional balinese crafts. There will be an array of hand crafts to choose from, like batik and wood carvings. We will also visit the Batuan Temple and the Holy Spring Water Temple – Tirta Empul Temple – famous for its holy spring water, where the Balinese go for ritual purification.

***There is an optional traditional Balinese dress-up session

 

A Day Tour of Ubud

We will kick off the day at the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace for an early magical sunrise. This area has a unique and beautiful view of the famous Ubud rice fields. Later in the day we will experience some adrenaline rush at the amazing Bali Swing (There will be an ***option to rent a flowy dress for your photos on the Bali Swing).  We will later head out to the Monkey Forest Temple – a royal heritage temple in the village of Ubud and a residence for long-tailed monkeys. We will also enjoy a coffee & tea tasting experience. The rest of the evening will be for you to explore Ubud at your leisure, relax at the resort or join an ***optional yoga session

A Balinese Adventure

After breakfast we will set off road-tripping to some Bali hotspots. This tour is designed to give a true insight into the wonder and extraordinary sites of Bali. Some of the highlights include Lempuyang Heaven Gate, Tirta Gangga Water Palace, Waterfalls … You definitely  don’t want to forget to bring your camera for some unforgettable instagrammable moments. 

Rafting Fun on the Ayung River 

This will be a free morning to relax at our resort’s pool or option to ***rent a scooter and explore Ubud city centre –  *** attend a Jumbo wash session & hug an Elephant, the choice is yours.  In the afternoon we shall set out for a rafting adventure on the Ayung River. While celebrating my birthday a few years ago by the Ayung river, I admired how much fun the people on the rafters were having as they sailed by – this made this experience a total bucket list activity in Ubud. A cool way to enjoy the lush rainforest and breathtaking gorges along the river. This is a fun and thrilling activity that will also be a great laugh for everyone. Its Perfect for first timers too as its not too extreme. 

Pool Party in Seminyak

After a relaxed morning and breakfast at our resort in Ubud, we shall drive to our next destination,  Seminyak. Seminyak is known for its trendy clubs and daytime beach clubs, restaurants, cafes, fashion and jewellery shops.

After our arrival, bring out your suncream, sunglasses and swimsuits! Lets gather for a pool party and lunch at our exclusive luxury villa. You bring the vibes and we throw the party! 

Island With the Most Beautiful Waters

Today we’ll head out on a boat and sail to the very picturesque Nusa Penida Island – the largest of the 3 Nusa islands and a perfect escape from the city. The tour will have a must stop at the famous Kelingking Beach (which resembles a T-Rex from above. It will be a day of beach, sun, sand and exploration, before returning to our villa in Seminyak. before returning to our villa in Seminyak for dinner. 

Chill or Hike?

There will be the ***option for an early morning hike at Mount Batur or a chill day in Seminyak, exploring its spas, shops, cafes, beaches or one of its day clubs. Maybe also try out some of Seminyak’s instagrammable cafes that are totally worthy of your insta-feed. For the Mt Batur hike you should know that it takes about 1,5 hours one way and is 11 kilometres out and back. There is an alternative shorter but much steeper route, which only takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to reach the top and is 7 kilometres out and back.  But in any case the views at the top are worth the early morning rise. In the evening, we shall all gather at one of Seminyak’s unique restaurants for a farewell dinner before partying the night away at one of Seminyak’s famous beach clubs. 

Its never goodbye but rather see you on another trip. We shall offer airport transfers as per your flight schedules. We look forward to seeing you on another adventure somewhere around the world.
