    One Week: Essential Bali

    Though Bali’s incredible resorts make it tempting to just stay put, there’s lots to discover on this culturally rich island, and Indagare can plan a customized itinerary that includes time for both relaxing and special-access exploring. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Days 1-2: Ubud

      Arguably Bali’s most charming city, Ubud also remains the central hunting ground for the island’s best handicrafts. The countryside around Ubud is home to pretty, local farms set amid rice paddies—for a taste of the setting, hike Campuhan Ridge in the early morning. Another early-morning hike option is to the top of the still-active Batur Volcano to see the sunrise over the surrounding landscape and lake. After your hike, explore the temple of Pura Ulun Danu, once housed within the huge crater but relocated after the 1917 eruption.

      Days 3-5: Uluwatu

      With some of Bali’s most spectacular beaches, Uluwatu is also home to the excellent surf breaks and Indagare can book expeditions through our preferred surf school. Alternately, a day at Finn’s Beach Club starts with sunbeds and watersports and ends with bonfires and sunset cocktails come evening. The 11th-century temple of Uluwatu perches over the edge of cliffs with the emerald blue ocean sitting beyond. A day trip to one of the islands off the coast, such as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Ceningan, is a must for snorkeling and diving aficionados.

    • Sea View-Beach Walk: Seminyak to Tanah Lot Temple , Bali, Indonesia

      Days 6-7: West Bali

      This beautiful and wild region off the tourist trail includes the West Bali National Park across the strait from Java and the island’s only protected area. Acres of forest and pristine beaches with beautiful coral are only disturbed by the indigenous deer that swim across the channel once a year. Plan to go horseback riding on the black-sand beaches, and visit off-the-beaten path villages like Tabanan.

Indagare's Sasha Feldman
“Spirituality and religion are the lifeblood of Bali. We see it in the Balinese’s daily offerings of flowers and sweets and in the religious ceremonies and festivals, which remain commonplace on the island. Escaping to Bali allows for reflection, adventure and immersion in a society built on love and harmony.”
