A Beginner’s Guide to Travelling Bali

Bali is a place full of lush jungle, stretching beaches, and fascinating history woven deep within the culture. Our Travel Expert Clea Eloise shares what makes Bali special and her travel tips for first-time goers.

Having never been to Indonesia before, I went in with an open mind and came home with a full heart – a huge contributing factor to the amazing adventure I went on, meeting people and new friends along the way. Bright smiles and kind words took the ordinary to extraordinary and made it all the more an experience to remember.

Seminyak

Bubbling with excitement and overflowing with surfers,¬†Seminyak is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for an easy-going vacation and a delicious selection of food. Brightly coloured umbrellas adorn the soft, wide beaches and the sound of waves keep you company as you laze the day away sipping cocktails brought right to your lounger.

Check out the DoubleSix hotel – perfectly located between the beach and town, it’s got the longest lagoon-style pool in Bali, and the only spa in Asia with hydrotherapy chambers (and yes, they’re as cool as they sound.)

 

Ubud

By far the most mystical-feeling, Ubud offers a landscape of fog-covered rice patties, one of the most recognizable landscapes in Bali. Here, you’ll find infinity pools perched precariously on the edge of a cliff and temples that soar out of the jungle with towering shrines carved in ornate detail slowly being overtaken by Mother Nature’s greenery.

For a truly unique experience, stay at the Royal Pita Maha in a ‘healing villa’; here, your private infinity pool’s water supply is fed directly from the blessed holy spring located on the hotel’s vast grounds.

Sanur

A wonderful blend of Seminyak and Ubud, Sanur is a stellar combination of pulsing beach and languid relaxation. This is definitely the place to get some shopping done, and I spent hours roaming the streets, drinking icy cold bubble tea and perusing market-style booths all the way down the strip to beautifully lit stores specializing in custom lace and flowing cotton.

I recommend stopping in at Uluwatu Lace – the pajama set I got was of paper thin cotton with a touch of lace here and there, all sewn by hand, perfect for the balmy Balinese evenings.
