Spend today in leisure.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: Seminyak Culinary Crawl
Get ready for a flavorful night out. Join a local guide for a Seminyak food tour along the main strip and the hip Petitenget area, long standing favorite destinations for dining and nightlife in Bali.
When the sun begins to set, head to a stylish rooftop bar on a vintage Vespa to start the evening with a cocktail and magnificent views. After the sun has dipped into the ocean and while the surfers catch their last waves, continue to a chic eatery that combines contemporary international and traditional Indonesian themes. A healthy starter platter is served while outside on one of the busiest streets of Seminyak. Indulge in a bit of people watching as local residents and tourists flock to the diverse dining venues in the area.
Take a short drive to the next stop on this culinary crawl, arriving at a wooden Javanese Joglo house for the main course. Tuck in to a dinner of Nasi Campur, tapas-style Indonesian dishes served around a rice pyramid. Savor the exotic spices and delicate flavors of truly authentic local cuisine.
Then it is time for dessert. Step into a stylish lounge set amid the rice paddies where a delicious sweet dessert is served. Soak up the views of the illuminated rice fields while satisfying the sweet tooth.
Having tasted the best of Seminyak’s culinary scene, return to the hotel or, for night owls, continue to one of the many bars in the area for a nightcap.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: WHITE WATER RAFTING
There are two options for whitewater rafting: The Telaga Waja River is more challenging, with Class III rapids while the Ayung River is not as fast-flowing and has Class II and III.
Be picked up from the hotel between 07:45–08:15 and transfer to the river. The drive takes approximately 90 minutes.
Upon arrival, be greeted by the rafting guides and receive a helmet, lifejacket and paddle. The guides will then provide a safety briefing and explain and demonstrate paddling techniques. A ‘dry bag’ will also be provided to protect any valuables and dry clothes.
Then it’s time to start paddling! (Four passengers and one guide per raft). Cover 14 kilometers on the Telaga Waja or Ayung Rivers in the course of approximately two hours. The trip is divided into two parts, with a rest stop on the riverbanks at the halfway point.
The scenery is truly breathtaking along these rivers, ranging from gorges and waterfalls to lush farms. Local villagers can be seen toiling their fields, or taking a break in the shade.
Afterwards, be treated to a lunch buffet of Indonesian specialties in a local restaurant with stunning views of the river and surrounding hills. There are shower and toilet facilities available as well.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: The Sunny Side of Bali at Bukit Peninsula
Set off this morning for a full-day exploration of the sun-kissed Bukit Peninsula, home to the important Uluwatu Temple and a mecca for sun worshippers and surfers. Spend the first half of the day at a cool beach club in a hidden cove, accessible only through an electric funicular. After soaking up some sun in this tropical locale, lunch is served in the shade. In the early afternoon, visit the impressive temple, majestically perched on the edge of a steep cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is one of the key temples believed to be Bali's spiritual pillars. Drive across the peninsula to Padang Padang Beach. A sundowner will be served at a restaurant venue atop the cliffs. From there, panoramic views open up over the long “Impossibles” surf break where it’s possible to observe surfers shredding waves at sunset. Finally, venture to the Jimbaran Hills and be greeted with a cocktail at a beautiful venue atop an old stone quarry. Enjoy an Asian fusion tapas-style dinner while watching airplanes landing and taking off on the horizon. (L/Sundowner/D)
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: Cruise to Nusa Lembongan
Take a trip to tropical paradise on this Nusa Lembongan day cruise, leaving Bali behind and sailing to Lembongan Island for a day of sea and sun. Transfer to Benoa harbour and board the luxury sailing catamaran for a 1.5 until 2-hours cruise. Watch as the shores of Bali fade away and the open sea comes into view. Sail across the turquoise waters, enjoying tea and coffee and light snacks on board.
Arrive at a quiet stretch of beach on Nusa Lembongan, an island oasis of white beaches and clear waters. The day is free to enjoy this blissful paradise. Relax on the soft sands underneath a swaying palm tree, listening to the waves lapping against the short. Alternatively, grab a snorkel to explore the colourful marine life and coral reefs found off the shores of Lembongan. There is also an opportunity to visit a traditional island village to see the seaweed farms and other local cottage industries.
At midday, a buffet lunch will be served at the Waka Beach Club. Feast on a selection of freshly grilled fish, tasty satays, salads and much more all the while enjoying views of the turquoise bay. The Nusa Lembongan day cruise will wrap up around 15:00. Return to the catamaran and cast off for the return journey. Arrive at Bali’s Benoa harbour and transfer to the hotel in time for sunset. (L)
