Top places to go in Bali

Bali is a magical place and the most famous island in Indonesia.  Experience the exciting bustle of Bali’s capital Denpasar, hike up mist-clad volcanoes, dive in colourful reefs, surf giant waves or just lie back on the beach and enjoy the dazzling sunsets.  This beautiful and fun-filled island has a spectacular coastline, charming locals, pretty rice terraces, fascinating temple ceremonies and long stretches of idyllic beach. 

 

The stunning Alila Villas

Visit the Balinese sea temple at Uluwatu,
perched atop a rugged limestone cliff on the Bukit Peninsula, where you can also find some of Bali’s best beaches such as Balangan, plus many excellent surfing spots. The temple itself is a majestic structure set high above the Indian Ocean and currently inhabited by a wide variety of monkeys.  Taste exquisite traditional Indonesian cuisine at The Warung located nearby within Alila Villas. 

 

Rows and rows of rice paddies can be found all across Bali

Explore quaint towns and admire Bali's lush rice paddies.  Whether you're on a bike, on horseback, in a jeep or riding a rickshaw, both are a must-visit. Stroll through the picturesque terraces at Jatiluwih or take a day trip to captivating Tenganan, one of Bali’s oldest traditional villages.  And don't miss a taste of the local culinary favourites such as Babi Guling (spit-roasted pig) and Sate Lilit (spiced mince on lemongrass sticks).

 

Take a sunrise trek towards Mount Batur for the most spectacular morning views

Join an unforgettable sunrise trek to the summit of Mount Batur, situated in the Kintamani region, and enjoy the natural beauty of an active volcanoWalk in the cool, early morning and witness a glorious sunrise amidst the stunning dawn views of the surrounding crater and lake.

 

Take time to browse the locally made crafts in Ubud

The Balinese are famous for their exquisite craftsmanship, so make sure to pay a visit to Ubud -  Bali’s cultural and artistic hub - and see the making of wooden masks, silver jewellery, stone carvings and Indonesian batik cloth.  Dine in tropical gardens lit by burning torches at Ubud's Mozaic Restaurant, feasting on a delicious seasonal French fusion menu influenced by Asian favourites.

 

Ride in a traditional Jukung Boat to see the dolphins near Lovina

Finally, travel to Lovina with its laid-back atmosphere, cosy restaurants and diving schools.  Early in the morning set off in a traditional Jukung boat with a local guide to see the large number of dolphins which the area attracts, then continue to Alas Kedaton monkey forest with its unique towering nutmeg trees, sacred to the Balinese people.
