YOUR BALINESE TALE

An island of ancient culture and spectacularly warm hospitality. Where your family adventure is set to a backdrop akin to an Indiana Jones movie, transporting you back to your own childhood (however we encourage you to leave your bullwhip, leather jacket & fedora at home!) The island’s tropical climate makes this magical place great to visit all year round and we’ve tailor-made this quest to suit your whole tribe. So pack your bags with a sense of adventure and get ready to swing from the treetops, roll in the mud pits, OD on chocolate and dive for deep-sea treasure!

Give us your details and together we’ll smooth out all the edges until you have your very own unique itinerary that you can’t wait to start.

Chapter 1: THE BEGINNING – CANGGU

Welcome to the emerging hip-city of Canggu where you can discover the beginner-friendly waves and picturesque sunsets. Once touched-down, your driver will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your chosen accommodation, where you’ll settle in, take a breather and relax with a cocktail and dinner made from the freshest of local ingredients. After a well deserved night’s rest, Finns Beach Club awaits with countless activities to entertain all the family. While kids are making a splash at the waterpark supervised by our expert childcare, parents can stretch their legs on the tennis court or enjoy a cocktail at the pool bar. 

Limber up with a morning yoga class for adults while the kids are exploring their creative side at Berawa Art House. There will be time later in the day to admire their fine creations. Opt for some more down time or book a surf lesson and learn to ride those waves. The kids will be busy building their empire of sand castles and scouring the grounds for treasure. Travel back in time on board a classic VW 181 convertible, cruising through the rice fields and sleepy villages of Bali with the roof down and the wind rushing through your hair!

Chapter 2: THE MIDDLE – UBUD

Journey 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 its starring role in Eat Pray Love – an obvious no-brainer for your next taste of Bali! Discover authentic Balinese life at Rumah Desa, where the locals will welcome you with rosella tea and show you about ancient Sanskrit writings on palm leaves. Then, walk through the greenery and cross the river to reach the fields for a hands-on experience. Spend some magical time in the rice fields, planting paddies or ploughing the fields with buffalo, followed by a tasty lunch of traditional Balinese  dishes. Next, 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 and decorate your own bars and truffles… sampling encouraged… yum! 

After overindulging on chocolate, spend a morning exploring Ubud village by bike, passing traditional Balinese dwellings to glimpse scenes of local life. If you still have the energy, enjoy an evening of entertainment with performances of dance and chanting by a dance troupe from the local community in an atmospheric outdoor candle-lit amphitheatre, followed by a Royal Balinese Dinner.

Flex your brute force and diminish evil, with a nifty side of spiritual intelligence. The martial art of Mepantigan is a holy mud mystery that combines self-defence techniques with performing arts. Kick-off the camaraderie with a swig of traditional local drink and 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.

Chapter 3: THE END – ULUWATU

Travel to the stunning Bukit Peninsula where cliffs tumble to the sea and beaches dot the shoreline. Kick back and relax, or wander the local town, sampling the best of Bali fare in the local restaurants. In the morning, travel by speedboat across azure waters and into paradise with this full-day tour to Nusa Penida Island that incorporates history, culture, and stunning vistas. Head to Goa Giri Putri – an ancient holy temple hidden inside an underground cavern big enough to fit 5,000 people – and learn about the Hindu religion from the knowledgeable local guide. Continue to Semaya Village, a charming community where seaweed farming still makes up a large portion of local life, and try out this rewarding and simplistic art form. After a morning of exploration, wind down the day for lunch at an ocean view restaurant. Then head to Crystal Bay for some beach time with calm clear waters great for snorkelling. 

The final day of the holiday is free to relax or book more adventures. In the late afternoon, you will be driven to a clifftop restaurant for your final dinner with stunning views and excellent local food. Next morning you will bid farewell to Bali. Share memories, learnings, 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.
