Two hearts in Bali
We are proud to present you a special and affordable proposal in one of the most charming islands of Indonesia, the beautiful Bali. Ubud is for sure a must visit and stay to fully appreciate the natural beauties of Indonesia. And for magic sunsets on the sea we have chosen for you the comfort of staying at Seminyak beach, with many facilities, fantastic restaurants and great bars around, the upscale area of the island.
Enjoy the peaceful and kind nature of the Balinese people, cheap and easy Balinese food, lovely beaches with chilled out atmosphere, beautiful country side, endless water & land sports, and great shopping of handcrafts and clothes with special design that can be found only in Bali.
Bali experienced a strong Indian influence since the beginning of 1st century AD, and resisted to the Islamic expansion of 14th century, maintaining so its Hindu culture intact. First Europeans arriving in Bali were the Dutch in 16th century, who considered it their colony till the Japanese invasion of WWII. After the Japanese defeat, the Dutch returned promptly on the island, but they found a strong local opposition, that eventually lead to the independence of the island in 1949, together with the whole Indonesia. 90% of people in Indonesia are Muslim, while Bali is the only island which comprises of 90% Hindu people. Bali is one of the favorite tourist destinations due to its beautiful landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides. It is a big island, many active travelers prefer to move and sleep around experiencing the different characteristics and lifestyle of the South, the Centre and the North. There are so many things to see, it could take weeks to explore it all.
People of Bali are very friendly and enjoy welcoming visitors; the weather is warm, humid and tropical all year round. The beautiful terraced green padi fields are among the must sees of this beautiful island. There is, however, an extensive variety of other fascinating activities suitable for adults and children: river rafting, scuba diving, visits to wildlife parks, sanctuaries, nearby islands or the most prominent Bali temples. It is an ideal destination for anyone who is looking for a great tropical holiday. All the flights are routed to Denpasar's Ngurah Rai international airport situated in the south.
Bali, with its verdant hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides, provides an enchanting backdrop to its colourful, deeply spiritual and unique culture. Travellers here will be charmed by mesmerising dance performances, pulse-pounding surf, touching temple ceremonies, highly developed arts, and ribbons of beautiful beaches. A small island but certainly not a limited one, Bali offers luxurious accommodations, misty treks amid the volcanoes, mellow beach towns, great art centres and services of very high standards: some of the spas and restaurants around the island will show you exactly why the word "paradise" is used so much in association with Bali. Fly to this beautiful island and experience this eastern heaven by yourself.
Few destinations in the world offer the unparalleled beauty and serenity of Bali, island of the Gods. And the cultural and scenic heartland of Bali is in Ubud, not on the beachfront but rather a countryside town/village, the soul of Bali. The centre of this art-lovers village is a bustle of activity, with its many galleries, wonderful shops and excellent restaurants catering to all tastes.
Nestled beside one of the island's sacred rivers and surrounded by rice terraces, only a few minutes drive away from centre of Ubud, in this world of peace and grace is where you'll find Amori Villa, a 5 suite/villa property operated as a boutique, butler-serviced hotel with 18 staff including 2 chefs and 5 butlers. Amori Villa guests have recently voted the property as the second best hotel in all of Indonesia for service, out of 1,575 hotels, and the 6th best in all of Asia!
With uninterrupted and relaxing views over the Petanu River valley, the property's carefully-chosen location provides you with sounds of the river and a connection with Balinese village life. Amori is designed for those who enjoy sitting and reading cooled by the mountain breezes of Ubud; getting tanned and healthy swimming in the 14 metre infinity pool; or going for a morning walk through the village and along the rice paddies, followed by a relaxing fresh fruit juice and cooked breakfast. At night, the chef will prepare dinner by pre-order, or the staff will drive you to one of the excellent Ubud restaurants, and then pick you up afterwards. Of course, Bali (and Ubud in particular) is famous for its spas and massages. When you are guest at Amori you should expect to be pampered: with more staff than guests, you will be well looked after. We would like to suggest you staying in a Grand Suite, with fabulous views, king-size double beds and spacious indoor-outdoor bathrooms. Choose between Valley view and Honeymoon Suite. Valley view: views, balcony, desk in bay window, beautiful indoor-outdoor bathroom with sunken bath and choice of indoor and outdoor showers. Honeymoon Suite: privacy, un-spoilt views, king-size 4-poster bed, walk-in dressing room, indoor-outdoor bathroom.
We have included for you in this proposal a selection of the best activities you may entertain yourself with in Ubud.
1) Half Day Tour - choose one between the following destinations:
The Elephant Cave, carved into a rock face with an entrance resembling the cavernous mouth of a demon.
The Moon Temple with its huge bronze drum known as the Fallen Moon of Pejeng.
The Gunung Kawi Temple, consisting of 10 shrines cut out of the rock face in imitation of actual statues, standing in awe-inspiring 8m-high sheltered niches into the sheer cliff face. A solitary shrine stands about a kilometer further down the valley to the south, this is reached by a trek through the rice paddies on the western side of the rushing river. Lot of walking in this tour!
The Holy Spring Water - discovered in AD 962 and believed to have magical powers - is a large, crystal-clear pool within Pura Tirta Empul, one of the most important in Bali.
Tegalalang rice terraces and handicrafts (recommended!), for beautiful views of coconut trees, small river valley and rice paddies. Along the road are many shops selling a variety of the beautiful Balinese painted woodcarvings, mirrors, tiled bowls etc.
The Monkey Forest (recommended!), a cool and dense swath of jungle housing three holy temples. The sanctuary is inhabited by a band of grey long-tailed Balinese macaques. They are ever vigilant for passing tourists who might have ripe bananas. The interesting Pure Dalem Agung temple is in the forest and has a real Indiana Jones feel to it. Look for the Rangda figures devouring children at the entrance to the inner temple.
2) Downhill Cycling Tour
You will be driven up to the beauty of Kintamani, which is located high on a volcanic crater rim, where you will enjoy a morning tea or coffee while enjoying the stunning view of Lake Batur and its neighbouring volcano. Then you will set off on your mountain bikes at a leisurely pace along quiet back roads through villages and varied landscapes of Bali, which change dramatically with altitude. Your day of adventure and education will end with a Balinese buffet lunch in a Balinese family environment. You can watch the chef as he prepares your traditional meals, or just enjoy and learn about the beauty of the Balinese music.
