Bali Private Tour and Komodo National Park Expedition Cruise

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Indonesia’s 18,000 islands are home to some of the most captivating coastal terrain and seascapes in the world making it ideal for coastal expedition cruising. The island of Bali is one of our favorite island destinations in the Pacific Rim with its beautiful lush interior, unique Hindu-animistic culture, and luxurious world-class, high-touch resorts. During our last visit to Bali, Bev, Zen and I very much enjoyed walking through the lush green terraced rice fields and villages near the artists’ enclave of Ubud. Religious festivals are held throughout the year and add a special dimension to any stay. To read more about Bali, visit our blog. This itinerary combines time in the idyllic and surreal countryside as well as an opportunity to adventure along the expansive Indonesian coastline.

Hotels

Notwithstanding the new luxury resorts opening up throughout Bali, Amandari is still our iconic favorite. Overlooking the Ayung River Gorge (nice for river-rafting!) near the artist’s village of Ubud, the resort consists of 30 pavilion suites, many overlooking the adjacent lush,  rice fields. Similar to other Aman locations, the Amandari has an amazing spa, wonderful food featuring local delicacies, and a well-stocked library. Of special note is the spectacular 100 ft. infinity pool, set against the idyllic, green environment.
