Time to Go Back to Bali


With the rainy season over and Mount Agung calm once more, there’s never been a better time to visit Bali. More than just a picture-perfect beach destination, Bali also has a rich heritage and a cultural side you should get to know better. Keep these suggestions in mind as you plan your next trip to beautiful Bali.

Explore festivals and traditions with the locals…

The Balinese have rich traditions and almost every celebration and holiday is accompanied by a village-wide ceremony. Whether it’s a colourful parade passing you on the street or an auspicious ceremony being performed at a temple, you’re sure to catch a glimpse of these cultural celebrations during your visit. If you’re planning your stay with a Secret Retreats partner, be sure to check with your hosts who can give you the ultimate insider’s guide.

Purify yourself in holy waters…


Bali’s many temples are holy sites where people pray to deities and connect with the land. At Tirta Empul, people have long visited the holy spring to be cleansed and healed. These public baths are popular with locals and visitors to the temple are welcome to join for a truly unique experience. To add a little more spiritualism and relaxation to your Bali trip, book a retreat with our partners at Sanak Retreat.

Enjoy the sun and surf…


Whatever your perfect beach day looks like, Bali has something for you. Whether you want to lounge in the sun or catch the surf, there’s a perfect beach waiting to be discovered. If you want more of the culture and artistry Bali is known for but would prefer to enjoy that from the comfort of a boutique resort right along the beach, our Secret Retreats partners can also make that dream come true.

Indulge in exotic flavours…


Listed in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and named Best in Indonesia, Ubud’s Locavore is all about going local. Chefs Eelke Plasmeiger (from the Netherlands) and Ray Adriansyah (from Indonesia) create inventive dishes driven by the abundance and beauty of hyper-local ingredients and flavours.
