Fill your days with surfing (the waves are ideal), watching Buddhist temple ceremonies and hypnotic dances, or wandering empty beaches at the base of massive cliffs. Add to your experiences the culinary ones too: Balinese cuisine is a heavenly blend of fresh local foods, full of intense aromas, and the dishes from around the world, often prepared by world’s top chefs.
But don’t take away only memories from Bali. For here the world of nature, temples and legends meets the world of boutiques, best spas and restaurants.
The island’s beauty meets art
It’s easy to lose yourself in shopping. The island has a strong tradition of high quality crafts and art: painting, sculpture, woodcarving.
But our favourite is pottery, famed for their sophisticated style. Perhaps the most renowned ceramics factory is Jenggala—visit their flagship store and buy one of the unique tea sets. But even the smallest roadside shops usually have some craft of the best quality: the beauty of the island seems to run in the blood of its inhabitants.
The mix of beautiful culture and nature makes Bali the top destination for a discerning traveller. Bali has been a benchmark for the contemporary trends in the top-end of the hospitality industry. The luxury hotels of Bali understand interior design and quality—everybody else can only imitate.
Bali is where the top luxury hotels of the world look for inspiration
If you are after a real vacation for body and mind, a paradise for all senses, and some of the best hotels in the world—look no further.
In the know
The best time to visit the island is between July and September when the weather is the most beautiful.
