  • A) SUPERIOR SAHADEWA RESORT or similar http://www.sahadewaresort.com/
  • B) DELUXE ALAYA UBUD RESORT or similar http://alayahotels.com/alayaubud/


Relaxed breakfast in the hotel. Pickup by the tour guide, and explore the magical surroundings of Ubud. First visit is to the holy ‘Tirta Empul’ water temple of ‘Tampaksiring’, to lay some Hindu ceremony offerings and have a blessing for a prosperous vacation and trip around magical Bali..

Next we visit the old King tomb graves at ‘Gunung Kawi’. Lunch break in a local restaurant (not included), and we continue to visit some of the famed artisan villages surrounding Ubud, each known for its own specialties since generations, like the villages of Mas (paintings), Celuk (silver) and Batubulan (stone and woodcarving).. And we end the day with stroll through the Monkey Forest of Ubud. Free evening where you can make a stroll through this small and cozy town, and enjoy a meal in one of the many local or international restaurants.

(*)Ubud is probably Bali’s best known small town (it actually consist of 14 villages) and is widely considered as the cultural, holy and arts centre of Bali. During day time it can be crowded by visitors, but during morning and evenings it still has the typical and magic charm as it has always been. Ubud is a popular holiday and residency place for jetsetters, artists and bohemians since decades, and absolutely recommended to spend some nights in or around Ubud. Try to catch in the evening a local performance of a Balinese dance.

(*)Tirta Empul Temple: theTirta Empul Temple in Tampaksiring is one of the 9th holiest temples in Bali, and is built around a natural spring. The crystal clear and fresh, supplied by 12 sacred springs fountains water in the temple is considered as the most holy water in Bali, and the Balinese Hindu devotees come from all over the island for cleaning and purification ceremonies, and often bring the water in bottles to their house temple for further ceremonies. Also for foreigners there is the opportunity to have a short bath in the public holy pool inside the temple complex.

Nearby is a big colonial villa which was used as the local palace by the first and founding President of Indonesia, and still in use to accommodate very important guests from the government.

(*)Gunung Kawi is an 11th-century temple complex in Tampaksiring north east of Ubud in Bali, Indonesia, that is spread across either side of the Pakerisan river. It comprises 10 rock-cut candi (shrines) that are carved into some 7-metre-high (23 ft) sheltered niches of the sheer cliff face. These funeral monuments are thought to be dedicated to King AnakWungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his favourite queens. On the east side there are five temples that are dedicated, according to one theory, to King Udayana, his queen Mahendradatta, and their sons Airlanga, AnakWungsu, and Marakata. The temples on the west side are dedicated, according to the same theory, to the king's minor queens or concubines. EXAMPLE HOTELS:

You will have breakfast at the hotel, followed by a chance to stretch your legs on a beautiful bicycle tour ;
the perfect way to get to know Bali with all your senses ….see, feel and smell the island ..

Escape the hustle and bustle and join us, to discover the ‘magic’ and, feel the ‘spirit’ of rural Bali, on our famous Eco/Educational Cycling Tour (Suitable for all ages, we also have Australian Standard Approved Baby Seats) The original and authentic eco/educational cycling tour, this tour was designed to take the visitor to Bali away from the tourist areas and show them the Bali they want to see – ‘the real Bali’ and to learn about the Balinese culture in the process.

Tour programme: After being picked up at your hotel we drive in an air conditioned car to Penelokan, Kintamani where we will start our tour overlooking the active volcano, Mt. Batur and its crater lake, enjoying the most stunning views in Bali. Here there will be an opportunity to take some fantastic photos before riding our mountain bikes through the heartland of Bali, travelling downhill on non tourist, secret back roads and minor village roads (with little traffic), experiencing typical Balinese daily life and enjoying the beautiful Balinese countryside on route to Ubud. We ride through lush forested areas, plantations full of Balinese staples and cash crops (cloves, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, tapioca, taro, local vegetables and exotic tropical fruits), through timeless small villages and lush rice paddy panoramas. And we will ride to throngs of adorable Balinese children will be there calling out ‘hellos’ and wanting ‘high fives’ on the way down. If we chance upon a ceremony (and we often do) you will be invited to witness the events and our guides will offer explanations.

We will show you a Bali other visitors never see and our experienced guides will explain this amazing culture and the relationship the Balinese have with their beautiful island. We have numerous stops on the way, including a visit to a Balinese home/compound, (where you get to see firsthand how the Balinese live outside the tourist areas), a Balinese plantation (where you learn of the medicinal and culturally important uses of local plants, the process of making coffee and see many of the spices you have used in cooking and tropical fruits growing in their natural environment.

We also get to sample many exotic tropical fruits, local herbal teas and coffees, including Coffee Luwak, (the most unusually produced and most expensive coffee in the world). We will also stop off at a village temple, an enormous Banyan tree and see stunning rice paddy panoramas. We will go for a short walk in the rice paddies to see villagers planting and harvesting rice (you can join in) and see traditional craftsmen at work en route. Lunch, served in a restaurant, set in the serene surrounds of rice paddies, is a delectable Balinese feast, including the smoked duck/chicken the guide books rave about. We also cater for vegetarians and can accommodate children with special meals.Our car also follows us down the mountain in case anyone is not feeling well. After lunch you have an optional visit to the Ubud Monkey Forest and temple complex. This tour is a full day tour (though, we can cater for time requirements) and we like to describe it as not just an adventure, but a cultural, ecological, learning and culinary experience! We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Afterwards we will return to the hotel , and you will have free time to wander around in Ubud . Our tour guides will give alerts about potential Balinese dance performances to enjoy during the evenings. (Note: hotel transfers and activity are based on SIC. English speaking only).

There are many cooking classes available in Bali.. Some are good, some are so-so, some are bad..

This is Asia, where successful products and concepts are easily copied…many times with a poor quality, and meant for gaining quick and easy cash… Some (even the famous ones) are just a stage show for an ego-driven owner / chef doing a floor show rather than actually ‘teaching’ the participants..
Our Cooking Class partner is one where even well-known Chefs from Asia and International star Chefs have attended the classes, and they are always commenting on the professionalism of the class.

The class begins early morning in the markets of Ubud, where the chef explains the use of all local vegetables, tropical fruits, and spices on array, selecting those for the subsequent cooking class. The members of the class do the actual chopping and cooking, under the chef’s supervision, then on the competition sit down together and eat the dishes produced.
Participants go home with recipes (and even a certificate) and the knowledge how to prepare these delicious Indonesian dishes.
Ideal for those staying a couple of days in Ubud. Contact us for more info.
