Where to stay

Bali is home to hundreds of premium hotels ranging from those with an authentic indigenous style to places with a soothing zen vibe.

One of the most idyllic hotels on the island is the Alila Villas Uluwatu. Perched on top of a cliff, the hotel offers guests a 180-degree view of the beautiful Indian Ocean below.

With 65 villas ranging from one to three bedrooms and all with pools, you’ll feel as if you’re on your own private adventure. 

The hotel’s strikingly minimalist design instantly gives you a calming and relaxed feeling. For further rest and relaxation book in for one of the many therapies available at Spa Alila. Choose from a Balinese Ocean Dream full body massage or a Shimmering Pearl body polish and let the tranquillity wash over you.


Where to eat 

Experience a celebration of flavours at Blanco par Mandif, a fine dining restaurant where you’ll taste a different take on Indonesian heritage cuisine.

Sample the gudeg – a Javanese traditional dish combining jackfruit, aromatic rice, egg and coconut, a deliciously decadent dish.


What to do

One of the most famous things in Bali are the waterfalls. Many are hidden by lush forests but with an easy nature trek you can access these natural beauty spots. One of the island’s best waterfalls is the Sekumpul Waterfall. Hidden in the forest makes this waterfall slightly inaccessible but with a trekking tour you can uncover the waterfall and take in its astounding cascades of water.

As a tropical island Bali’s beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world, Nusa Dua Beach in particular. Spend days at a time on the sandy white sand and take a dip in the crystal-clear sea.

Another great way to experience the turquoise blue waters is to hire a yacht from Pulau Luxury Charters. They will even pick you up from your hotel and take you to the port. The company has an impressive fleet of luxury yachts for you to choose from for the truly decadent experience.

To make the most of the relaxing and indulgent offerings of Bali, a day at one of the many premium spas is essential. The Spa at the Bulgari Resort gives clients a relaxing cliff-top view along with wonderfully relaxing treatments delivered by skilled therapists.  Book in a deep massage using essential oils or perhaps a hot stone massage is just what you need.
