Stay at The Royal Purnama, a quiet beachside haven that is just remote enough to make you feel like you are miles from civilisation, when in fact you are only 16km from the cultural town of Ubud, 25km from the hip and happening Seminyak, and 30km from Bali’s international airport. There are international restaurants and shops galore just 15km away in Sanur, and fun days out can be enjoyed at Bali Safari & Marine Park (8km) and Bali Bird Park (11km). The villages of Mas (11km), Sukawati (6km), Batubulan (11km), and Batuan (7km) are famous for their traditional handcrafts and are fascinating to visit.

  Get Directions


Our full day tour begins in the village of Batubulan, where you’ll witness a traditional Barong Dance. Watch as lion-like Barong, a symbol for the good forces in Balinese mythology, takes on his enemy Rangda, the queen of the demons. Next, we’ll head to Celuk, an area famous for its handmade silverware, before stopping in the hamlet of Batuan, noted for its centuries-old temple and intricately detailed paintings. After donning a Balinese kamben (ceremonial sarong), you’ll be invited to explore the temple grounds and its historic structures.

From Batuan, we’ll drive north to Kintamani, home to the active volcano of Mount Batur and its glassy crater lake. Rugged, hilly backdrops of green and blue will make you reach for your camera at the charming villages of Toya Bungkah and Penelokan, and if you’re hungry, a multitude of picturesque eateries await.

Winding back towards the hotel, we’ll make a stop at Tegalalang iconic rice terraces for a stroll through the ancient paddy fields. Before finishing the afternoon, we will visit Tegenungan waterfall.

Our full-day tour begins inland at Pura Taman Ayun, or ‘beautiful garden temple’ surrounded by manicured lawns and royal ponds. This is a UNESCO Heritage Site dating back to the 1600s. Whilst in the mountains we continue with a visit of a Bali Coffee Plantation and get the chance to taste the famous Kopi Luwak. From there, we’ll go further north to the farming area of Bedugul to see Bali’s most photographed temple, Pura Ulun Danu. Instantly recognizable is its pagoda-like structure that appears to float mysteriously above Lake Beratan. After lunch we will be winding through the mountainous area. The postcard-pretty rice terraces of Jatiluwih are our next stop. You’ll see rice farmers at work in lime-green paddies peppered with coconut palms and shrines to honor Dewi Sri, Bali’s goddess of rice. We will finish our tour with a sunset viewing of Pura Tanah Lot, a temple builds on top of a rock overlooking the ocean. With a history spanning back to the 16th century, it’s one of the island’s most important—and striking—temples, especially at sunset.

Our full day tour begins at Goa Gajah temple. After taking the flight of stone steps down to the Goa Gajah temple complex, you often don't need more than an hour to explore and admire the relic-filled courtyard and view the rock-wall carvings. The site contains a namesake meditational cave, bathing pools and fountains. The next trip is continuing to Tirta Empul, a thousand-year old temple complex in Tampaksiring, just north of Ubud. Balinese Hindus flock to this ancient site to seek spiritual cleansing in its ornate bathing pools, which are fed by a sacred mountain spring. Roughly translated to “water gushing from the earth,” Tirta Empul is dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu God of water, and dipping your head underneath the water spouts here is believed to wash away negative energy. From the peaceful holy water Tirta Empul, we drive further for lunch to Kintamani, home to the active volcano of Mount Batur and its glassy crater lake. After lunch we drive away from the mountains to the village of Penglipuran- World Cleanest Village by UNESCO, where you will be invited to learn more about the Balinese way of life. Visit a Balinese family in their traditional house, experience the peaceful way of living and enjoy watching the traditional artisans.

Our full-day tour begins with a visit to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (GWK), a recreational area famous for its 120-metre high sculpture of the Hindu God Wisnu sitting astride the mythical bird, Garuda. Next, we’ll head to the rock-lined beach of Padang Padang. Hemmed by a 100-metre long stretch of golden sand, it’s a picturesque spot to watch the local surfers in action or cool off your feet in the turquoise waters. A great place to have a small bit for lunch.

After a short 10-minute drive, we’ll arrive at Pura Uluwatu, an ancient sea temple built 70 metres above the crashing waves and inhabited by throngs of monkeys. Here, we’d recommend checking out the Kecak (fire dance) at the temple’s sunset amphitheatre. Sound tracked by gamelan (Balinese percussion) and the hypnotic chanting of 60 bare-chested male dancers, it tells the love story of Rama and Sita from the great Hindu epic, The Ramayana.

Finally, we’ll head to the white-sand bay of Jimbaran, famous for the rustic seafood stalls that pop up on the beach every afternoon. Mud crab, tiger prawns, lobster, and all kinds of fish are laid out on ice displays, ready to be picked and grilled up for dinner. Feel free to settle into a table in the sand for an early dinner, or just walk along the shore and take in the buzzing atmosphere.

We leave the hotel early to make our journey to Kusamba traditional fishing village. This village is also very famous for its traditional salt production, villagers in this village still earn their livings by fishing and making natural salts. You will be stunned by the view of fishing canoes and salt making huts lined up along the sea shores creating a very traditional view. Our journey continues to Tenganan Village with its long history of Hindu traditions, that have been passed on by previous generations. We take the time to have lunch in the charming village of Candidasa before heading off to Virgin Beach, a pristine beach away from the crowds where you can take a dive in the sea or do some snorkeling in the gentle wave. Before we turn back to the hotel, we make a stop to visit Tirta Gangga. In the middle of park, there are many small statues are intentionally set on the stone to decorate the park in order to make a good looking. All of the statues are taken from the Hindu Historical epos like Maha Bharata or Ramayana. After this spectacular experience we travel back to the hotel.
