With its rolling hills and endless rice fields stretching right across the region, Sidemen holidays offer a chance to experience one of Bali’s most picturesque destinations. Though it isn’t as well known as resorts such as Ubud or Tegallalang, the Sideman valley is incredibly peaceful and offers a window into authentic rural life in this beautiful corner of Indonesia.
The nearby Mount Agung is the highest mountain in Bali. It’s a perfect place to enjoy a few days of hiking or exploring the surrounding rice fields. There’s also the option to go water rafting along the Telaga Waja River, stopping at the many charming villages and small settlements dotted along the way.
Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of holidays in Sidemen
It’s no surprise that Sidemen is quickly becoming one of Bali’s most up and coming destinations.

“Food in Bali is packed with rich flavours and homegrown produce – so why not try your hand at creating some authentic dishes with a Sidemen cooking class? From grilled satays to babi guling and betutu, there’s no shortage of amazing cuisine to try.”
“Despite the fact that there are ATMs and cash machines available for tourist use all over the island, bear in mind that these machines are often out of order. It’s certainly wise to make sure you have enough cash on you when visiting local shops, bars or markets.”
Nyepi Day 2020
Known to many as the ‘Day of Silence’, Nyepi Day is a sacred Hindu holiday that is celebrated across Bali. From 6am on 25th March to 6am on 26th March, villages and communities take part in 24 hours of silence, fasting and meditation. Tourists are expected to respect the ritual and should bear in mind that all streets, shops and even the airport will be closed during this day.
While you’re in Bali, make a point of sampling Arak, a sweet wine liquor made from coconut palm flower. Arak is produced locally and varies in strength and flavour depending on which region you are visiting.
