From US$ 265 per person
This package caters especially for those wishing a brief introduction to aspects of Balinese culture and see some of the special sights on the island of Bali prior to moving on to other places in Bali or Indonesia.
Arrival in the morning at the Lodge, welcome drink and welcome by our Manager. Suggest a walk in the gardens or a swim before lunch. Siesta, followed by an afternoon visit to the Uluwatu Temple, one of the six main temples of Bali. Wearing a Sarong, you will start to walk up the cliff with stunning views around. In the temple yard you will see some Macaque monkeys but be careful with the things you bring especially (eyeglasses, earrings, aids, etc) as they are quite wild. At 18.00 the Balinese Kecak dance from the Ramayana epic is held. This tells an eternal love tale between Rama and Shinta and hopefully there will be a beautiful sunset background. It is really an unforgettable experience. Return to the Lodge for dinner, Breakfast and then to the airport.
VOLCANOES and UBUD After breakfast, at 08.00 proceed direct to the stunning crater containing Mount Batur at Kintamani through Batubulan, Celuk, Mas, Gianyar to Bangli Regency. Arrive at the crater and enjoy a lunch on the edge of the crater where Mt Batur is found. If you are lucky you will sight Mt Agung, the main mountain of Bali and spiritual home of the Balinese People. Then you proceed down through Tampak Siring Temple to Ubud, there you can either visit the famous Neka Art Museum or go shopping. Ubud is a great place to purchase goods of all sorts. Ubud is generally considered the centre of Balinese art and culture. In Ubud, you can have afternoon tea and then go back to the Lodge for dinner.2
Cost per person including twin share room, welcome drink, access to the swimming pool, all meals for two days (except lunch at Ubud), Uluwatu and Kintamani Tours and transport to the airport.
