Bali holidays introduction...

Bali’s reputation as a paradise Island is fairly unsurpassed, though it is worthwhile exploring the centre and north of the island to find total seclusion. The standard of accommodation is unquestionably one of the highest in the world and new resorts are always springing up, raising the bar even higher. Traditionally, Bali has a reputation as a beach holiday destination, or to chill in the chic hill resort of Ubud, but it also has plenty to see and do, aside to pampering and soaking up the sun, should you want to explore.
Ubud offers a fine art scene and other creative work such as local handicraft, and generally has a very relaxed vibe and cafe culture, not dissimilar to Chiang Mai 25 years ago. The area is beautifully lush and you can absorb the views of tiered paddy fields that are some of the finest in Asia as you wend your way up towards the town. For a little more action, you can indulge in some white water rafting, in the same area, and the Ajung river will actually take you right past some of Ubud’s most exclusive resorts perched high on the banks above.

Then there’s Tanah Lot, the temple built in the 1500’s just off the west coast. Surrounded by water at high tide, it is quite a sight. North Bali offers a different side of Bali, away from the more popular south and you can see plantations growing vanilla, chocolate, coffee, cloves, and even wine grapes. Near the village of Banjar is a popular hot spring where you can take a bath in the natural pond. Visit Lovina’s black beach before you pass the old capital of Singaraja on the way to Git Git, famous for its multi-tier waterfall. Kintamani volcano is another spectacular sight, and you can cross the crater lake of this still active volcano.

Last but not least are Bali’s beaches, the bulk of which stretch all the way up the west coast. Starting in Jimbaran in the south, with its fantastic beach seafood shacks barbecuing their food over burning coconut shells, through buzzing Kuta to the luxury resorts of Legian and Seminyak, the beach just keeps on going. Dotted along it are not only some of the finest beach hotels in Asia, but also some of the finest restaurants. La Luciola, Gado Gado and the incredibly chic Hu’u restaurant/bar/club are 3 of many fine dining options but although they are the top of the tree, they won’t break the bank.

Ultimately you can make your Bali holiday as active or inactive as you like, but it’s great to have the choice. We can also arrange bespoke tours to the neighbouring island of Java.

If you require any further information about any of the destinations or hotels please do not hesitate to contact us. Why not combine 2 or more destinations/countries for a really memorable experience.

From one Director to another; Oliver quizzes Nathan all about Bali...

Why did you choose Bali for your honeymoon?
After looking at a range of countries it was apparent that summer is a difficult time to choose an exotic honeymoon destination.  After scouring the globe I discovered Bali, an area we both hadn't been to and were intrigued to visit having a previous passion for the Far East.

What surprised you about the island?
The island does really have something special about it.  The charm of the people, the luxury comfort of the hotels, plus the combination of this with traditional rustic charm.


How do you get there?
As it is a 15 hour flight I recommend combining it with an Asian city such as I did with Singapore.  Singapore Airlines offer fantastic connections and excellent service.  From London they use the new A380 on certain flights which was a great experience.

Who does Bali appeal to?
A wide variety of travellers from couples of all ages looking for history, quality service and very comfortable surrounds.  Some of Asia’s best hotels are now in Bali and can easily be combined as part of a multi centre destination with chic inland areas such as the town of Ubud, one of filming locations for the film ‘Eat Pray Love’.

What else is there to do than the beach?
From picturesque cultural inland areas, temples, wildlife including an excellent elephant reserve and spa retreats there is much more to do than sit on the beach.

What about cuisine?
The food was some of the best I have ever had in Asia. The resort of Seminyak has some of the islands best restaurants and offers a wide of cuisine from Balinese, Asian to seafood and international food, all tastes are catered for.

How do you get around the island?
We found the best way and the most economical was hiring a driver for the day.  This was great value for money and comfortable and would show us around the island pointing out highlights along the way.

How did this compare to other holidays?
It really was the trip of a lifetime, just as I imagined.  The choice of accommodation was fantastic for us, it gave us a great combination of city and relaxation.  Having our own private pool villa in Bali was a real added luxury and comes very highly recommended for anyone looking for privacy and seclusion.

“In Summary, Bali is a great option for those looking for a far away romantic island during our summer months, very much recommended!”

THE LEGIAN - BALI HOLIDAY SPECIAL
This beachside resort is a haven of good old fashioned luxury with 67 rooms in all, offering a whopping 99m2 as the smallest size room, going up to a gargantuan 364m2 for the Legian suite. There is even one more room that surpasses that, the private beach house set in its own gardens with a 16 metre pool, 2 day beds, 4 sun beds (so you don’t have to move with the sun), a private butler and, the icing on the cake, assistance at customs on landing before they whisk you by private helicopter directly to the resort.
