The paradisiacal island of Bali is a treasure trove of unspoilt beaches, ancient temples, oceanfront hotels, lush jungle and roving wildlife. Temple hop from Tanah Lot on a rocky island where you'll be refreshed by sea spray, to Uluwatu atop dramatic cliffs, Besakih with its breathtaking misty mountain backdrop and the mysterious stone carvings of the Gunung Kawi. The yogi Mecca of Ubud offers up gorgeous open-air yoga studios in jungle surroundings and is home to the Sacred Monkey Forest and the nearby Elephant Safari Park where you can watch the animals in their natural habitat. Some of Bali's best beaches are located in party capital Kuta and the slightly tamer Legian, while Lovina on the north coast is an undiscovered gem. Head inland to trek to the top of the Mount Batur volcano or explore the rice terraces in Bali's villages. For a taste of tradition, catch a Balinese dance show or melt away stress with a Balinese massage before heading back to one of our hotels in Bali.
Food & Drink:
Widely considered Bali's national dish, the melt-in-your-mouth babi guling is suckling pig roasted over a spit with a spice mix of turmeric, coriander, lemongrass and ginger. For seafood, Jimbaran Beach is the place to be for all sorts of grilled seafood from shrimp and crab to the catch of the day in a sweet chilli marinade. Vegetarians can chow down on gado-gado, a mix of tofu, bean sprouts and spinach and topped with crispy fried shallots and a savoury sweet peanut sauce.
Off the Beaten Track:
Hop a ferry from Sanur Beach to the island of Nusa Lembongan, an oasis of white sand beaches, crystal water, and mangrove forests. Don't miss Dream Beach, which is just as fantastic as it sounds.
