You'll Love Bali

Bali has cast its spell over visitors since the beginning of time. There is much to discover in Bali, from its spectacular landscapes to its rich culture. Take some time together to explore this fascinating island.

 

Life is a constant celebration here. The majority of the Balinese are Hindu and they frequently celebrate ceremonies or temple festivals. Our own village, Sanur, holds its festival in August – and there are festivals around Bali all year. Sanur is one of the oldest fishing villages in Bali and is a perfect place for those seeking a relaxed getaway.

 

We have created tours with a Private Butler for a glorious day out. Let us know what you would love to do, and we’ll tailor it for you … with a picnic or restaurant stop if you wish.

 

Here are some of our favourite things to do in Bali. Whatever you choose, ask our Concierge at the Bale to arrange it for you. Better still, plan with us in advance or your arrival!

 

Sanur

Sanur's main shopping street of Jalan Danau Tamblingan has a relaxed atmosphere This comfortably shaded street, lined by numerous cafes, is a perfect place to shop all day!

 

Drop into the art galleries for contemporary and traditional artworks. Don’t miss the Museum Le Mayeur. The house is an interesting example of Balinese-style architecture. Le Mayer's early works are Impressionist-style paintings from his global travels. Paintings from his early period on Bali are romantic depictions of Balinese daily life and beautiful Balinese women - often Ni Polok, his wife..

 

You can also find a Pasar Seni or Art Market displaying lovely woodcarvings and other equally fantastic handicrafts.
