Bali Holidays

Bali brings you natural beauty, as well as some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. Couples will enjoy the glorious sunsets and serene beaches, while adventurers can seek excitement in Ubud, the cultural hub of Bali, or head underneath the glistening blue waters on scuba diving and snorkelling trips.

This island in Indonesia  is renowned for its volcanic mountains and blissful coral reefs, with so much more to discover beneath the surface. Try one of the many yoga and meditation retreats hiding away next to the glistening ocean water, or visit bustling towns where a range of sights, smells and sensations can be found around every corner.

We could talk all day about Bali: its enticing satay skewers, its frangipani-filled spas and its blissful Seminyak sunsets. It’s not surprising so many people return from here feeling re-energised. We’ve no doubt you’ll feel the same affinity when you visit this idyllic Hindu province. The vision of enchanting temples and remarkable rice fields will be etched in your memory long after your return.

    Temple Sightseeing

    Some of Asia’s most spectacular temples can be seen in Bali. The Ulun Danu Temple can be found in one of Indonesia’s beautiful mountainous regions. This striking water temple complex is a formidable structure comprised of numerous distinctive buildings. Visit the Hindu Tanah Lot Temple on the west coast of Bali and admire its unique position, perched on a cliff in the sea. Alternatively, the Goa Lawah Temple is home to resident bats and dates back to the 11th century.

  • Sacred monkey forest

    Combine beaches and jungles

    Bali isn't just about beaches, although there are plenty of beautiful ones to be found. Head inland to Ubud in the centre of the island and enjoy lush green landscapes, verdant river valleys and playful wild monkeys. No trip to Bali would be complete without exploring both landscapes and if you have the time we recommend spending at least 2 or 3 nights in Ubud. Many of the hotels here have amazing valley views and the only sound you'll hear is the humming of the crickets and the calling of the birds - the perfect jungle retreat.

    Watch a cultural performance

    Bali's rich spiritual and cultural heritage is both fascinating and endearing. Many hotels offer Balinese cultural shows, usually performed on an evening while you dine on local Indonesian cuisine. The cultural performances consist of various dances including the popular Barong dance which depicts the fight between good and evil with dancers in incredibly ornate outfits backed by a gamelan orchestra.

    Pamper Yourself

    Bali is renowned for its health and well being. In all resorts you will find an abundance of spa's with talented therapists offering a huge array of treatments for a fraction of the price you can expect to pay here in the UK. In addition to spa's there are plenty of wellness retreats on the island and you will find that most hotels also offer yoga classes. Across Bali you will find restaurants serving healthy cuisine including the popular 'acai bowl' breakfast which is basically a thick smoothie topped with oatmeal and fruit served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon.

  • Scuba Diving and Snorkelling

    The calm seas of Bali play host to an array of colourful marine life, where adventurous swimmers can get up close to some wonderful varieties of fish. Enthralling snorkelling and scuba diving sites are easy to find in Bali, with places like Nusa Lembongan and Manta Point home to rays, turtles and fish, as well as shipwrecks and clear waters.

  • Island Hopping

    There is perhaps no better way to spend your time in Bali than with an island hopping experience. Both Lombok and the Gili Islands can be combined with a holiday in Bali. Begin your adventure on the exotic beaches of Bali, before jumping on a speedboat or boarding a short flight to Lombok, where relaxation and tranquillity can be found along the beautiful hiking trails or on pristine beaches. A final speedboat ride will take you to snorkelling and diving ventures in the Gili Islands.

    If you have time, spend a few nights in the Gili Islands. These tiny islands have such a cool, rustic vibe and the snorkelling is amazing - the waters are crystal clear and you have a really good chance of seeing turtles.

    To see more of the island I recommend booking a car and driver for the day, we can arrange this before you travel. I did this on my honeymoon and it was great because we could choose exactly where we wanted to go and how long we wanted to spend in each place.

Frequently Asked Questions

The beaches in Bali are very varied. Nusa Dua and Sanur beaches are palm-fringed, white sandy beaches occupied by hotels and resorts, while Uluwatu Beach boasts dramatic cliff scenery. Eastern and Northern Bali beaches such as Lovina and Amed boast an off-grid feel and striking volcanic black sand. 

The Tanah Lot Temple is located on a small islet off Bali’s southwest coast, at the end of Jalan Raya Tanah Lot in Beraban village, Kediri. It’s around a 45–60-minute drive from Kuta and Seminyak, and a 75-minute drive from Ubud. It’s possible to take an organised tour or taxi here.
