8 Reasons to go on Holiday to Bali now
Bali has long been a favourite holiday destination for those in search of luxurious lodgings, tranquil beach environments and a taste of the fascinating Indonesian culture. If you haven’t already been, here are eight reasons why you should definitely book Bali for your next holiday…
1. The beaches really are all that
Wherever you are around the island of Bali, you're bound to experience beaches unlike any you've seen before…the wide stretch of golden sands at Seminyak are filled with quirky little bars and colourful umbrellas, the rocky beaches in Uluwatu are the ideal place to watch the surfers and search for crabs on the rocks and the beaches at Sanur are perfect for rewinding and relaxing.
2. Go find your inner Yogi
Talking of rewinding, Bali is famous for its idyllic retreats and can be the ultimate destination for learning or practising the tradition of yoga. There are many studios offering classes and workshops all over Bali so you could be privately mediating in the rice fields of Ubud or holding your tree pose on the sandy beach at sunset.
3. Hang out with the local surfers
Surfers head to Uluwatu in Bali to be challenged by the incredible waves off the south coast, they really are something else. If you’re an avid surfer, then you’ll be keen to jump straight in but beginners can also give it a go with surf lessons in the calmer seas further up north.
4. Bali is unbelievably pretty
Retreat to its many paradise beaches, gaze over its fascinating emerald rice fields, explore volcanic mountainous landscapes and jaw-dropping cliff edges. All this natural beauty make Bali’s scenery rather impressive and endlessly photogenic. Just make sure you put your camera down long enough to take it all in.
5. It’s a little bit of luxury on a not so luxury budget
Bali is all about quality and this is very much reflected in the standard of restaurants, bars, hotels and boutique accommodation. With reasonable rates, you could rent a stunning secluded villa with a private pool for you and your family or friends. Take a look at our villas in Bali.

With private dinners on the beach, sunset cruises and incredible spa days – there are so many romantic things to do in Bali. Proposals and weddings are very popular and for many Bali is also the dream honeymoon destination.
7. Where’s your sense of adventure?
Bali is not just a beach holiday destination and offers hiking tours to the active volcano Mount Batur, white-water rafting down lively river rapids, mountain cycling through the valleys in the countryside plus much more.
8. Discover the Island of the Gods for yourself
