Your day-by-day itinerary
Tumbling Rice Paddies of Ubud
Ubud is the bohemian centre of Bali, an atmospheric world of small artist studios, yoga schools, restaurants and cafes. Spend two nights ambling amongst the rice terraces that flow down the hills and into the valleys like rich green waterfalls. Watch daily life unfold in authentic villages, learn about coffee production and soak up the inspiring spirit of the place.
Munduk and the Temple Lake
Discover a breezy highland world of misty mountains, forest waterfalls and serene temple lakes in Munduk, a hilltop retreat with heaps of local character. Trek through the valleys and orchards, soak up the gorgeous views and suck in the cool mountain air. Follow scenic trails through vanilla, coffee and clove plantations to glimmering lakes and visit island temples in the hills.
Lazing in Lovina
Lovina is home to a handful of fisherman and a sea full of shrimp, so you’ll head out on afternoon trip with one of them to try your hand at reeling in the local catch. Unlike the beaches of the south, Lovina is a peaceful stretch of dark volcanic sand with real Balinese character. The pace is slow, the seafood is fresh off the boat and the snorkelling is second to none.
Bali's Secret Spices
Cook up a classic Balinese storm on the laid-back beaches of the east. Snorkel through coral gardens and whip up tasty traditional dishes in an open-air kitchen. While the beach at Candidasa has mostly been swallowed by the sea, the atmosphere is deliciously drowsy and the food is to die for. You’ll take an authentic cooking class complete with sea views, learning how to create some local favourites.
White Sands of the Gilis
Visit a laid-back barefoot escape with swaying coconut palms and an underwater world begging to be explored. Snooze in the sunshine, take barefoot strolls, feast on sizzling seafood and snorkel with sea turtles. The Gili Islands are a castaway sensation. The sand is white, the water is unbelievably clear, and the atmosphere is completely carefree. It’s the perfect place to end an active adventure.
Beaches of Southern Bali
Snooze on the sand, stroll on the beach, indulge in a spa treatment (or two) and soak up the tropical sunshine in Sanur, a southern beach with a village feel and a deliciously drowsy vibe. It’s a great place to end a busy trip to Bali, with narrow beaches, spa treatments and seafood by the bucket-load. Stretch out by the pool, take a leisurely walk along the beach and grab a cocktail at sunset. Simple.
