THE EXPERIENCE

Indonesia’s smallest island, Bali, ranks atop most travelers’ bucket lists. The island adheres to traditional Balinese Hinduism, making for a unique cultural visit. Explore the peacefulness of temples and rice paddies on the island, commonly called “the island of gods.”  

Your adventure begins in Ubud, known as the art and culture capital of the island. Explore the network of alleyways in this little town to discover cafes and boutique shops, be welcomed into the home of a local family, and visit ancient temples of extraordinary craftsmanship.

Spend a few days on the beaches of the Gili Islands, an archipelago group of tiny islands between Bali and Lombok. Snorkeling around coral gardens, observing marine life, and sipping on fresh coconut water as you lay on the white sandy beaches of paradise.

Oh, and let’s not forget that you’ll hike to the top of a volcano to watch the sunrise!

Explore the Sangeh Monkey Forest. This rainforest is a peaceful refuge for a vibrant community of monkeys whom you will be able to observe in their natural habitat.

Enjoy lunch overlooking the beautifulTegalalang Rice Terrace, and take a photo on the Bali Swing. Afterward, visit Gunung Kawi Sebatu, a temple built in the 11th century dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu God of Water.

Day 3

Experience Balinese Culture

There is no better way to immerse yourself in Bali than being with locals. Today, you will learn about Balinese culture from a local host family.

Your hosts will walk you through Ubud’s Ganyar traditional market, where you will buy fresh produce for your cooking demonstration later.

Be welcomed into a Balinese family home to understand the unique architecture and how homes are designed to pay respect to ancestors and the Balinese gods. Participate in a craft workshop to learn how to make your own offering.

In the afternoon, take a walk to the village’s holy waters and participate in a private purification ceremony.

Take in the spectacular views of the surrounding valleys with a hot cup of Balinese coffee while giving yourself gratitude for completing this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In the afternoon, explore Ubud with optional activities ranging from visiting a local waterfall to pampering yourself with a spa or simply exploring the numerous art galleries and boutique craft shops downtown.

Day 5

Gili Islands Getaway

Say goodbye to Ubud and begin your journey to the Gili Islands, an archipelago of three small coral isles known for their powdery white sand beaches and crystal clear waters.

Arrive at Gili Trawangan, your base for the next two nights, and take to the beach for a day of leisure. Relax by bathing in the sun and dipping in the fresh waters of the Bali Sea while sipping on freshly cut coconut.

Join your friends for a beachfront BBQ dinner of grilled meats and locally sourced seafood. Welcome to paradise!

Day 6

Snorkeling around the Gili Islands

Explore the Gili Islands on a traditional wooden Balinese boat with a glass floor. 

Snorkel and swim among tropical coral gardens and visit an underwater Buddha statue. If you are lucky, you may encounter some of the resident sea turtles that call the Gili Islands home.

After a full day of swimming and exploring the islands, return to Gili Trawangan for a free evening of leisure or perhaps dance it up at a beach party.

Day 7

For those early risers, head to the beach for a morning Stand-Up Paddleboard session and yoga class. Rejuvenate your body and appreciate the calmness of the morning on this tropical island.

Spend your last few hours on the Gili islands as you please before taking a ferry back to the mainland of Bali.
