Day 1 – OM SWASTIASTU!
Welcome to Ubud, Bali’s culture capital, filled to the brim with art, music, food and history.
…An introduction to be proud of; it’s no wonder the town rose to fame through it’s starring role in Eat Pray Love – an obvious no-brainer for your first taste of Bali! Once touched-down, your driver will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your Ubud hotel, where you’ll settle in, take a breather and meet your fellow two point four travellers over a cocktail and dinner made from the freshest of local ingredients.
Day 2 – Keeping it Green
Enjoy your first breakfast in Bali, before stretching your legs on a light ‘jalan jalan’ (Indonesian for walk) around the beautiful bamboo campus of Bali’s Green School, just a short drive away.
A progressive and wall-less institute that practices what it preaches in sustainability; your guide (likely to be a student or parent of the school) will take you on a journey of Aquaponics, a Micro-Hydro Vortex’ (Just don’t say it in a hurry) and the local majestic bridge of the school grounds. Feel free to ask questions and seek answers to the Green School story, set to the soundtrack of their very own love for music.
In the spirit of sustainability, lunch will be at Moksa Ubud, a 100% plant based restaurant deeply rooted in local culture and cultivating the land, serving a cuisine of fragrant spices and fresh vegetables to tantalise your taste buds.
Enjoy an evening of dance with performances of an ancient epic that tells of a prince’s quest to rescue his beloved wife with an army of monkeys in tow… Epic indeed!
Day 3 – Mud Glorious Mud!
Flex your brut force and diminish evil, with a nifty side of spiritual intelligence. The martial art of Mepantigan’ is a holy mud mystery that combines self-defense techniques with performing arts. Kick-off the camaraderie with a swig of traditional local drink & a fried banana entrée, served complete in eco-friendly dinnerware. Then robe-up in the local ‘Triadtu’ sarong – an ode to Ida Bhatari Shri, Goddess of Rice.
It’s time for mud pits and some good old fashioned tomfoolery before a cleanse in the river, followed by a yoga-esque warm up under the coconut groves before tucking in to a lunch spread that’ll please the gods.
Drive back on a high, then simmer down low during a relaxing afternoon. The kids will be kept busy in the hotel gardens by our dedicated childcare staff, whilst the bigger explorers of you sneak off for a well-deserved massage.
Day 4 – Flying High
Muster up your inner Macaque as you swing from the treetops in an adrenaline filled Botanical Garden bonanza. Explorers of 4yrs and up will continue up and up and up, before Tarzan jumping their way back down at this Bali Treetop Adventure Park. Our younger adventurers will have their balance tested from a safe, but action packed distance from the ground.
Phew! Freshen up and take a plunge in the garden’s hidden waterfalls followed by a picnic lunch in the afternoon.
Finally, it’s back to Ubud for some neighbourhood mooching with the family along the winding streets of undulating art galleries, designer boutiques and tasty eateries.
Day 5 – River Rafting
Whilst the dare devils jump into their rafts for a white-knuckle ride along the rapids, our little adventurers will be whipping up their own fun with painting and cooking classes back at the hotel.
Carving through some of Bali’s most jaw-dropping landscapes of the Ayung River, this breathtaking 2-hour river trip explores deep valleys and cascading waterfalls between towering cliffs; all under the watchful eye of our local river and rafting experts.
Lunch awaits you! …then you’ll head back to the hotel for your (likely) personal exhibition from your very own little artisans who await your arrival.
It’s time to ‘set-sail’ for new adventures and bid Ubud farewell, arriving to your stunning cliff-top villa at the Amed shoreline. Kick back and relax, or wander the local town, sampling the best of Bali fare in the local restaurants.
Day 6 – Chocolate Lovers’ Delight
It’s a chocolate fever-dream and you’ve got the Golden Ticket! Live out your childhood desires with an exclusive visit to the spectacular Chocolate Factory.
Specialising in locally sourced, organic cocoa, the factory will teach you all about the ancient traditional methods for optimal chocolate consumption – Bali style. Create & decorate your own bars and truffles… sampling encouraged… yum!
Live the monochromatic life today, with an afternoon at Virgin Beach. After your gloopy immersion of the delicious dark-stuff, bury your toes into the light white sands of this stunning shoreline. Be it the beach bum or surf & splash lifestyle, the turquoise waters of Virgin beach and their ‘warungs’ (restaurants) will happily satisfy all the way to sunset.
Day 7 – Exploring Shipwrecks
Ahoy there, Maties! Ready for an aqua-adventure for all?
Whilst the little ones splash about with games and activities at the pool, older kids and budding pirate enthusiasts will snorkel their way through the coral bays, scoping out shipwrecks and marine life. A wreck that found it’s dreary deep blue demise following a Japanese torpedo in 1942, has transformed into an underwater menagerie… Who knows? Perhaps there’s even some hidden treasure for the finding.
Dry up at your hotel and spend the rest of the day, either hanging back or exploring the temples, rice terraces and more, in Amed.
Day 8 – Hip and Happening
It’s hard to say whether we’ve saved the best for last, as so much of Bali is beaming with beauty, but the water gardens of Tirta Gangga are the stuff of myth and magic. Grace the grounds of this palatial wonder, full of maze pools, stone carvings and 11- tiered stone fountains to inspire the envy of kings & queens world over.
After our royal Water Garden stop-off, we arrive to the emerging hip-city of Canggu. Discover the Balinese boutiques and pick up some gifts from the cultural eastern region of the island.
Dinner at the local hotspot, Motel Mexicola will serve the freshest of guacamole, tacos and churro’s whilst the kids are free to shake a tail feather or two to local music, before a good-nights sleep for all.
Day 9 – Take Me to the Ocean
Ride the waves because surf’s up! At the stunning Legian beach.
‘Legian’ literally meaning ‘sweet’ in Balinese is the theme for the day. Whilst learning to balance on board in the art of surfing, the kids will be busy building their empire of sand castles and scouring the grounds for treasure.
Lunch will be at your leisure before a quest of Tanah Lot, Bali’s unique offshore temple famed for it’s sunset backdrops.
An early night for the kids, for when they’re at bay, the adults can play! We’ll be serving a romantic BBQ meal on the beach, prepared by the top chefs of the region. So raise a glass and toast to YOU! Against a soundtrack of wave break and wonder.
Day 10 – Stretch it Out
After your quiet night, you may just welcome an early rise and shine. Stretch out this morning to sun salutation with some yoga poses, setting you up in good stead for your relaxing family day.
It’s been an action packed few days with lots of memories to marinate in, so a prescribed beach chill may be just what the doctor ordered. Still satisfying your curiosity? Perhaps it’s a local food tour or cookery class that appeals. The choice is yours and there are no wrong answers. Canggu has a great collection of hole-in-the-wall café’s to soak it all up in and a medley of shopping for all.
Day 11 – SELAMAT TINGGAL – GOODBYE
Bid farewell to Bali and your newfound friends. Share memories, learning’s, life-changing moments and laughs over a final breakfast.
Remember the lush jungles of Ubud and hiking across rice terraces? The ancient temples and Zen of your yoga classes? May your memories of Bali be forever set to the backdrop of coconut groves, secret waterfalls, spiritual sunsets and tropical reefs.
It’s time to say goodbye to a place you never realised could feel like home, as we drop you to the airport, bound for your new quest of trying to explain it all to the family and friends you left behind.
