Bali Tour Itinerary*:

Day 1 - Arrival in Ubud
Welcome to the Island of the Gods!

Upon arrival to Bali head to the Goldenbird lounge where your driver will be waiting to whisk you from the chaotic airport to peace and tranquillity at the Svargo Loka wellness retreat that sits on what was once land belonging to the King of Ubud and still regarded as a spiritual location.

Ubud is the hub of Bali’s thriving arts culture. Here you can wander around art galleries, boutique shops or enjoy a fresh juice or a gelato. Meet your group leader at 6 pm for a welcome briefing and get to know your fellow voyageurs before heading out to Nusantara, a traditional Balinese restaurant where you’ll enjoy a delicious feast that showcases the very best of Indonesian cuisine.

Day 2 - Ubud
This morning we embark on a culinary adventure to unlock the secrets of some authentic Balinese dishes.

We start our day at the local market to pick up our ingredients choosing from herbs, spices, crisp vegetables and our chosen protein and then take it back for our cooking class in a local villagers home.

We learn how to cook Balinese style and after sit down to enjoy the fruits of our labour with a lovely lunch. To digest it we’ll walk it off with a short tour around Ubud visiting the exterior of Saraswati Temple and the Blanco Musuem which is the home to some controversial artists.

The rest of the day is yours to explore the magical streets of Ubud.

After a leisurely breakfast we set saddle to explore some of the villages outside Ubud on our 2 wheels. Passing through rice fields, fruit orchards, temples and local villages, we make a stop at a local Balinese house to pick some oranges and learn about the unique style of Balinese architecture.

After a light lunch we visit Tirta Empul temple located on a holy mountain spring that feeds a series of purification pools. This is an important site for Balinese people, and where they come for purification. Your group leader will help any of you that feel that they need to be purified!

Leaving the city behind, we head to our next hotel, De Umah Bali located in Bangli a real Balinese compound that implements the traditional architecture called ‘Asta Kosala Kosali’ or ‘Asta Bumi’, a Balinese feng Shui.

Each building is built on a precise location in accordance with the spiritual meaning of the place using the step of the owner as a base measurement for its proportions to incorporate his spirit in the building itself.

Take time to freshen up before we meet our yoga and meditation guru who will explain a bit about the history and benefits of meditation and then take us through our own guided Meditation.

A delicious and healthy dinner is served in the hotel all made only from local produce.

Take a natural shower before enjoying relaxing picnic lunch because tonight things a hotting up as we take part in an Agni Hotra fire healing ceremony.

Agni Hotra is an ancient fire ceremony originating from the sacred Vedic Hindu texts. Agni refers to fire and Hotra means, healing. This healing fire ceremony is considered one of the highest Vedic rituals.

Specially trained priests make offerings of ghee and grains into the fire while reciting Sanskrit mantras to invoke blessings of health and abundance.

Relaxing Sidemen is our next stop and we start with a trek amongst the lush rice fields stopping at a local house to learn from one of the female weavers the painstaking process of weaving ikat (The term ‘ikat’ refers to the dyeing technique used to create the designs on the fabric. Bundles of yarn are tightly wrapped together and then dyed as many times as is required to create the desired pattern.)

It’s a totally fascinating experience and we also get chance to have a go. We carry on with our trek taking in the breathtaking panoramic views and learn about the ancient Subak (irrigation) system.

Lunch is a local dish of fried rice wrapped in Banana leaves. The rest of the day is free for you to dip in the pool with its stunning views, have a massage or simple just relax with your new friends.

After learning the process of creating chocolate bars from healthy dark chocolate, we get to dive in and taste the many flavours on offer– Heaven!!

Our final stop today is a beach known locally as Virgin beach –A beautiful stretch of long white beach around an attractive turquoise cove. There’s a lot of local ‘warungs’ – restaurants where we can relax on a sun lounger, have a healthy lunch, washed down with an ice cold beer and a dip in the ocean.

An early start as we head to Lempuyang temple a 1-hour drive away. Lempuyang is one of Bali’s oldest, highest and most important temples. Our guide, who is also the local priest will accompany us on the climb of 1700 steps to reach the summit.

This is very much a spiritual climb and you will see dozens of locals making the climb in sandals, traditional clothes and carrying offerings.

Nestled on the coast, surrounded by lush green mountains is a place called Amed. It’s most famous for its excellent diving amongst the beautiful coral reefs and of course a few shipwrecks, namely the second world war US Liberty.

After a rejuvenating yoga session, it’s time to board our specially converted VW van for a day of serious pampering in some of Bali’s very best Spas.

If you care for a treatment (at your own cost), there’s anything from a Shiwa Balinese massage to a Balinese Boreh body mask.

Now with your mind mellow and your body blissed-out, we’ll stop for a 3-course lunch at the spa café, where you can feast on delicious dishes like Sumatran-style beef or snapper cooked in white wine.

After lunch, we’ll head to the home of a local mangku (priest) for a spiritual healing and meditation session. Ibu Mangku practices the ancient art of spiritual healing and she’ll lead you through a private ceremony to help unlock anything stuck in your unconscious that needs releasing. Female priests are quite rare in Bali, so a meeting with this extraordinary lady will be a very special treat!

With everyone pampered, blessed, and relaxed, we’ll head to one of the best bars in Southeast Asia for a sunset cocktail (or two… trust us, you won’t be in a rush to leave!) and our farewell dinner. Hotel: Kirana Bali Canggu
