Escape to the island paradise of Bali on this Indonesia vacation. Splitting time between the Balinese peninsula and Ubud, you’ll stay in charming resorts, take advantage of the incredible beaches, and explore the fascinating culture and history of this world-famous island.


This 11-day Indonesia vacation takes you to the island paradise of Bali and two charming resorts on the island.

Your tropical vacation begins in Bali, Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination, which boasts a mixture of jungle and beach and is the ideal spot to head on wildlife hikes and relax in the warm waters of the ocean. While in Bali, you’ll stay at Ayodya Resort Bali, a charming resort resembling a Balinese water palace. Staying in one of its 541 elegant rooms and suites, you’ll enjoy world-class service and the idyllic surroundings of 29 acres of manicured gardens. Take advantage of the resort’s secluded 300-metre-long white-sand beach to swim, snorkel, and surf to your heart’s content.

While at Ayodya Resort Bali, you’ll head on day tours to explore the island’s history and culture. A full-day adventure tour will showcase Bali’s incredible landscape, taking you on back roads, across rice terraces, and through small villages to get an appreciation for the island’s natural splendour. You’ll stop off at villages like Tegal Linggah, where you’ll see the famous Temple of Batukaru, perched on the rainforest-covered slopes of Mount Batukaru. Later, on a full-day Eastern Coast Bali Discovery tour, you’ll visit Kehen Temple with its large Banyan trees and Besakih Temple, the largest and most significant temple on the island. To close out your time at Ayodya Resort Bali, you’ll explore the arid landscape of Bukit along the southern peninsula and enjoy a seafood dinner on the beach beneath the stars.

From Ayodya Resort Bali, head north to Ubud, one of Bali’s cultural centres and an expat haven due to its presence in the popular book, Eat, Pray, Love. In Ubud, you’ll stay at Uma By Como, an intimate hotel showcasing exceptional style. This hotel dedicated to health, activity, and adventure feels like a rural home in the Balinese hills, with narrow paths through the forest connecting its 46 rooms and suites made from indigenous materials of thatched woods and alang-alang roofs. While in Ubud, you’ll get in touch with traditional Indonesian culture with a cooking class and market visit. First, stroll the market of Ubud to see where locals buy all their fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. Learn how to select the best seasonal ingredients from your expert host, and then head to the kitchen where you’ll learn to create traditional dishes using curries, sambal, and fresh seasonal vegetables. This cooking class will not only allow you to savour the culture of the island, but will equip you with plenty of tasty recipes to cook when you return home.

This Bali vacation showcases the stunning landscape and fascinating culture of this island paradise.
