Tailor-Made Holiday

Indonesia - Beaming in Bali

Combine four nights in Ubud with five nights by the beach in Bali

10 days

from £2,995pp

Nine glorious nights in Bali based at the Chedi Club hotel in Ubud followed by the Legian hotel in Seminyak.

Combining the cultural heartland, jungle interior of Ubud with the golden sandy beaches of Seminyak on the coast of Bali make this holiday suggestion an absolute favourite.

Ubud, where the Royal family had fostered a long tradition patronizing the arts. The King of Ubud co-founded the Pitamaha Artists Cooperative in 1936, which triggered a process of cross-pollination between traditional Balinese and Western painting styles. Although over the past two decades the town has developed into a major tourist center with hundreds of boutiques and shops, Ubud and the surrounding villages remain the undisputed cultural heartland of Bali and the growth has not ruined the splendid natural setting. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful; undulating rice terraces are interspersed with majestic hundred year old trees and several dramatic gorges slice through these foothills.

There is plenty to see and do in the Ubud area from rice field walks and cycle rides to Hindu archaelogical sites and temples. it is also possible to do horseriding and white-water rafting tours.

On the journey from Ubud down to the coast visit Jatiluwih.The Jatiluwih Valley offers one of the most astonishing examples of terraced agriculture in the world. In Jatiluwih the landscape is a sculpture that was meticulously perfected over some five hundred years by many generations of farmers who collectively created an intricate infrastructure of dams, canals and aqueducts to irrigate their individual rice fields most efficiently. Last year Jatiluwih was added to the UNESCO's World Heritage List as a site of outstanding universal value to humanity. Take a walk through the terraces the gentle song of water that continuously trickles down from one rice paddy into the next will not fail to mesmerize you.

If interested cycle from Batukau temple located on the foothill of Batukaru Mountain which is Bali second highest volcano, it is about 1.5 hrs scenic driving time from South Bali Beach or Ubud. Pura Luhur Batukaru was dedicated to the ancestors of the rajas of Tabanan. It was destroyed in 1604, but rebuilt in 1959. The temple's most important shrine is a 7-tiered of meru dedicated to Mahadewa, the God of Mount Batukaru. Today, Pura Luhur Batukaru remains an extremely sacred site for Bali's Hindu population. Many of the complex's grounds remain off-limits to visitors for various ceremonies and events throughout the year. The ride is mostly descending, passing through back roads with few kilo meters are gravel roads. On the way you will see stunning view of rice terrace, mountains, valley and hills. 

Arrive at Seminyak, an area on the south west coast of Bali with glorious, long sandy beaches. Time may  be spent at leisure but there is also plenty to do from surfing, diving and snorkeling to cycle tours and temple visits.
