Cocktails, Clifftops & Insta hotspots!
Wake up you’re in paradise, no really you are. The hotel is stunning, the views? Beautiful, the company? Couldn’t be better. This morning we’re heading off to the famous Uluwatu cliff temple to learn about traditional Balinese culture before heading to one of the most Instagram worthy spots for lunch. Strike a pose, snap those pics and you’re in for at least 100 likes or so. You’re welcome. After lunch, we head for afternoon cocktails. Located 50,000ft on a clifftop you’ll most certainly have your head in the clouds, maybe it’s the back to back cocktails or the high altitude. Who knows. We arrive back to the hotel around late afternoon to chill out, grab a shower before heading out for a group dinner.. Did someone say more cocktails?
Temple Visit & Beach Club
NEXT STOP UBUD BABY!
This morning we bid farewell to our tropical dream, Seminyak, it’s an early check out as we head to Ubud. We’re doing Bali big, like big big. So, of course, we have to visit the iconic rice terraces on the way, if you’ve ever researched Bali you would have seen layers of emerald green, pristine rice terraces in the background of every photo so of course, it’s an Instagram must visit. We travel in style to Ubud so sit back, relax, play a game of Uno or eye spy on the way. The afternoon is free to explore Ubud, visit the world-famous monkey forest, explore the local markets or even grab a stress-reducing massage! Ubud is a small zen kinda town with good vibes and unbelievable food. Grab an early night as in the morning, we’re climbing a volcano for sunrise! Yeah, we’re coming in HOT!
Bubbles & Volcano Treks
Rise and shine, It’s an early one, grab a large coffee, and we’re on our way. You may not be a professional mountain climber or volcano hiking pro, but sunrise at the top of Mount Batur is like no other. It’s around 2 hours to the top where we’ll stop and watch the golden orange sunrise break through the clouds. In the words of Leonardo Dicaprio in Titanic - I’m on top of the world! How can we make this epic moment any better? Well, a glass of prosecco wouldn’t go a miss! We’re popping bottles at the top as we raise a glass to celebrate our climb! An absolute bucket list ticking experience, afterwards we head back down to our stunning hotel and arrive around 10 am. Have some free time to catch some zzz’s in the afternoon before we have a well-deserved massage.

Today we take the Bali experience to the next level. What do we love in the world more than travelling? FOOD! For all you foodies today will be a dream. Yeah, that’s right we’re taking you to the local cooking school where we’re dicing, slicing and cooking up a storm as we learn to master traditional Balinese cuisine.

Stunning Nusa Lembongan
Next stop Nusa Lembongan! Never heard of it? Well, we’re about to blow your flip flops off! Nusa Lembongan is a part of 3 small Islands off Bali’s coast with blue ocean views and golden sandy beaches, so some might say Nusa Lembongan is bliss and well, we’d have to agree. We leave the hotel early and catch the ferry over to our next destination. Take some time to chill in the hotel before we try our hand at stand up paddleboarding, we don’t do average, so we’re paddleboarding through the mangroves! An unforgettable experience, let your troubles melt away as you immerse yourself in rich greenery and calming waters. Views on views. In the evening we catch the golden-orange sunset before enjoying a group dinner at one of Nusa Lembongan’s best restaurants.

Grab that GoPro because this is an experience you don’t want to miss. Swimming with gentle majestic manta rays. These friendly giants can reach a wingspan of up to 29 foot, wild right? Well yeah, it is pretty wild. Although big in size, they’re harmless and swimming amongst them in their natural habitat is up there with bucket list experiences. Go Manta Rays! We spend our day swimming in the crystal clear waters under the glorious sun. Perfection. We head to Nusa Penida and Kelingking Beach Viewpoint, home to undoubtedly one of the best viewpoints in all of Asia.
