Bali

Overview

The 'Island of the Gods' is a mystical place of intense natural beauty. It is so diverse, it has something for everybody, whether you want to embark on a spiritual adventure or kick back at a world-class designer hotel.

It ticks so many things off the tropical traveller’s wish list: culture and history, pristine beaches and jungles, superb spas and eateries, plus a huge range of boutique hotels and villas. Situated just off the eastern tip of Java, this large, volcanic island is awash with scenic landscapes and fascinating cultural sites: a predominantly Hindu island in the middle of the world’s largest Muslim nation, Bali’s art and architecture is distinctive and gorgeous, as is the food.

Head inland to find serenity in the breathtaking terraced hills. Ubud, the cultural capital of the island, is located in the peaceful interior of the island, and there are some exclusive private villas in this area. Alternatively, make for the coast – the south coast is a cosmopolitan hotspot for food, shopping and nightlife. It is also a surfer’s paradise, and enthusiasts gather from all over the world to surf the island’s legendary waves.

Our team take frequent research trips to the island and we can guide you towards the finest hotels and beachfront villas that aren’t widely known. We’ll also help you construct a tailor-made itinerary – from boat trips, dining suggestions and watersports – and take care of all the booking details.
