will be our 6th trip to Bali and our 5th time to this fabulous
You will love this country,
the people, our tours and this hotel. Bali is not only a beautiful place with it’s greenery, gardens, palaces,
beaches and terraced rice fields, it is the peaceful people
who will win your heart and have been bringing people here for
years. It is voted by the readers of all major travel
magazines as the most enchanting travel and holiday destination
in the whole world. Beautifully dressed women walk
proudly through rice fields and forests carrying offerings on
their heads to the next temple. Gods and spirits have been an
important part of Bali’s daily life for hundreds of years. Gunung Agung – Bali’s
holy mountain – is internationally regarded as one of the eight
“Chakra” points of the world.
There are an abundance of interesting tours and activities to be had on
this trip to Bali that will keep each day interesting. Temples,
volcanoes, forests with monkeys, snorkeling, river
rafting (one of the best!), scuba
diving with giant manta rays, ATV's, riding an elephant,
experiencing a Balinese dance show, horseback riding on the
beach, cruise to nearby Nusa
Penida and Nusa Lembongan islands off the South-East
coast are just some of the many things to do and see in Bali. All of our tours are great (see link below for more details and the itinerary).
Or, just relax, and we’ve got the perfect hotel to do that at
and hence the “luxury” part of this headline.
We will be staying at the 5-star Intercontinental
Hotel on Jimbaran
Beach (go to
tripadvisor.com to read all the glowing reviews) and
offers facilities, pools and services beyond belief. It’s
an awesome hotel on the best beach with the best sunsets
in all of Bali.
Our group have been upgraded to their premium singaraja rooms
which include some great benefits including snacks and sandwiches
and free flowing beer and wine every day from 5-6 pm! All
rooms have a private balcony or terrace with views over the
large gardens with lagoons, cascades and ornamental pools. The
Marine Sports Centre offers a wonderful choice of water
sports, there are three swimming pools, and three
outdoor Jacuzzis in the gardens,
as well as the health club, Uluwatu Spa.
One of the other nice things
about Bali is it’s inexpensive. You can get a car and driver to take you around
for a full day for less than $50! Food, drinks, massages,
cool clothes and souvenirs are a bargain! We'll have 9-nights
to tour and relax. Cost includes hotel (double occupancy), daily
breakfast and all ground transportation. The breakfast
here will blow you away. Easily the best of any hotel we have
ever stayed at.
As of this posting we are still waiting to confirm our air. Check back
in the weeks to come.
