Bali has numerous places you can go to in order to disconnect from the world. Most of the island is covered in awe-inspiring natural beauty, so if you are a nature lover, here are some excursions you can consider going on when you stay with us:
Bali Tropical Safari - Get into a 4x4 and drive around the beautiful rice paddies located on the slopes of Mount Batukaru. In the afternoon, indulge in a Balinese lunch at one of the villages while taking in the rare view of Baraban Beach with its unique black volcanic sands.
Day Trip to Lembongan Island - Get off the boat on the white sands of the clean and pristine Lembongan Islands, and spend the day with several different interesting activities. Lounge on the sands, take a tour of the nearby village, snorkel, or walk on the seafloor with the fun and safe Aquanaut helmets to properly immerse yourself with the gorgeous marine surroundings. A Club Med Bali excursion not to be missed!
Telaga Waja/Ayung Rafting - Go downstream on your raft at the Telaja Waja or Ayung rivers, and be prepared to get wet! Take in the amazing sights and get a glimpse of what authentic rural Balinese life looks like for locals as you make your way along the river.
Dolphin-watching - This is an especially exciting excursion for those who have kids. Head out early in the morning and watch dolphins swimming along Nusa Dua coast. An opportunity not to be missed!
