Visit of the King’s palace in Amlapura

Amlapura is located not too far from Bali Marina Villas. It is the home of the famous King’s palace with its natural springs which invite you to take a refreshing bath. The entire site has recently undergone a soft renovation: the historic water fountains represent the beauty of an impressive and long past epoch.

More palaces, temples and monkeys in Ubud

The historic city of Ubud is located in the heart of the island and perfect for a day tour. Explore the breathtaking, lush landscape in the subtropical center of Bali and some of the most impressive palaces and temples the island has to offer. While there, don’t miss to pay the mystic monkey forest a visit. And take your time to stroll through the main temple, Pura Desa Ubud and Pura Taman Saraswati, the temple of the rice goddess.

Bali’s most sacred place: Pura Besakih

The Mother Temple of Besakih, or Pura Besakih, in the village of Besakih on the slopes of Mount Agung in eastern Bali is the most important, the largest and holiest temple of Hindu religion and one of a series of Balinese temples. Perched nearly 1000 meters up the side of mount Gunung Agung, it is an extensive complex of 23 separate but related temples with the largest and most important being Pura Penataran Agung. This is built on six levels, terraced up the slope.

Temple with breathtaking views: Pura Lempuyang

Lempuyang Temple is located about 10 km east of Tirtagangga on the slopes of Mount Lempuyang. It is one of the key nine directional temples on the island. Over 1‘500 steps will lead you up a mountain from where you will enjoy magnificent sunset views at dusk. The temple has just recently been renovated.

Visit of the Aga Village

The Aga Village is located approx. one hour driving distance from Amed. It is one of only two remaining ancestral villages on Bali. It is home to the island’s native habitants where people still follow a very traditional lifestyle. Unfortunately, over the past decades and with increasing tourism, life of the Aga has changed, like in any other place on this earth where the modern world meets the old, traditional world.
