The lush and serene beauty here is very special. While soaking up the powerful atmosphere, also go bike riding, enjoy Balinese healing, a cooking class and a romantic dinner.


With its lush beauty and scenery, Ubud is the ultimate location for amour, yoga, meditation and relaxation. Stemming from the best-selling memoir of the same name based on Elizabeth Gilbert's experiences in Asia, this one week itinerary offers the cultural highlights of Ubud - Balinese healing, a cycling tour, a local cooking class and a romantic dinner on Jimbaran Beach in Bali.

Ubud is a small town located approximately 50 kilometres/30 miles from most of the major Bali resort areas. It is situated among gently rolling rice paddies and steep ravines. There is something of a spiritual air about Ubud. Perhaps this is why Yoga and Meditation are two popular practices here. It is also a major arts and crafts centre with many artists’ workshops and galleries to be found throughout the town.    Also Ubud is a great place to shop for crafts, batiks, clothes, paintings and a myriad of souvenirs.

Upon arrival at Denpasar airport, you will be met and taken by road to Ubud where you will be checked into your choice of hotel. The next morning, begin with either a Meditation or a Yoga class to start your day. Then take time to decide on your activities which probably will include exploring the charming town of Ubud.  Or you can stay at your hotel and relax.

The following morning, visit the nearby village of Tampaksiring famous for its 11th Century Hindu temple complex then continue to Goa Gajah, also known as the Elephant Cave with its reliefs of animals carved into the cave entrance which date back to the 9th Century.  Finally enjoy a journey through the scenic Tegallalang rice paddy terraces.

The next day is a day to meet an expert in traditional Balinese faith healing for a private one on one consultation. Afterwards, enjoy lunch at the Lotus Restaurant in Ubud. The remainder of your day is free to further explore the town.

The day after is a more energetic one. You will go cycling around Ubud’s villages down small roads to view Balinese rural life close up.

The following day is a busy one as you start with an early morning yoga and meditation session. Later you visit a traditional family home to learn how to cook Balinese style. This includes a trip to the local market to purchase the necessary ingredients. The result will be your lunch. In the evening, a special dinner at the Café Wayan.

Then the next day, after a one hour yoga session, depart from Ubud and transfer to your beachfront hotel in Benoa. That evening you will have a candlelight dinner on JimbaranBeach.

Unfortunately, the following morning your Eat, Pray, Love experience comes to an end but you are free to extend your stay in Bali of course.
