Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali appeals through its sheer natural beauty of active volcanoes and emerald-green rice fields. It is also famous for being a surfers’ paradise!

Ubud is Bali’s artistic and spiritual heart where you can immerse yourself in traditional Balinese culture. Visit the beautiful and majestic Saraswati temple, wander through Ubud’s sacred Monkey Forest and immerse yourself in a Balinese cooking class. Ubud truly is a place of relaxation, rejuvenation and serenity.

For those looking for some adventure after a little R&R, a sunrise trek to the summit of Mount Batur is the ideal way to start the day. Hike through the night, before enjoying an unforgettable sunrise and spectacular views from the summit.

A world away from Ubud are the beach hotspots of Seminyak and cool alternative, Canggu. Home to luxury hotels, beach clubs, and a laid-back café culture, this is where the surfers and party crowd gather to have fun!

A holiday to Bali offers the chance to explore an incredibly diverse landscape, culture and history whilst also enjoying uber-cool eateries, adventurous activities and luxury spa retreats.
