When I think of Bali, I think about paradise. My idea of the island life is definitely one where I bask under the sun while sipping on a freshly squeezed fruit mocktail as I nibble on tapas before refreshing myself in an infinity pool or best yet, the stunning blue waters of the Indian Ocean lying before me. I mean, nothing quite says you’re on holiday like drinking a mojito as you lounge on a sunbed at 1pm, right?

Day 1

Get the most out of South Bali’s stunning beaches and cliff views!

Beach holidays have long been the favourite kind of holiday for those escaping to Bali, as we head off in our hordes to find beachfront resorts with the best views or yet with private beach access (all of which often come with hefty price tags).

This is all cool (and expensive), so imagine being able to chill, party, swim and relax at a beach club that’s located on the far southern coast of Bali (also known for the best beaches around the island) without having to stay at an expensive resort! Now, friends, this is how you raise your sunny holiday to the next level!

Day 2

Enjoy a full day in the island’s most hipster coastal town!

Heard of Canggu (pronounced as “Chan-goo”)? Today is the day you get to explore this hip little coastal village in South Bali. The area has long been a surfers’ hideout but is now so very distinct for its unique quirky personality, titling itself as “Bali’s hipster central”. Just like any typical hip hotspot, Canggu features quirky smart cafes, boutiques and delis selling the now-obligatory avocado on (sourdough) toast along with the hottest beach clubs packed with hot shirtless surfers and golden-skin ladies!

For all your Santorini and little mermaid dreams – Panama Kitchen and Pool (2 hours)

Fancy a cocktail on a daybed by the pool? Or an exciting fun time sliding down to the pool or better yet – an indulging moment in a jacuzzi with soothing views? Well technically, it has no beach, it is more of a pool club but you get the whole beach club shebang and more if you get what I mean.

Pamper all of your hipster needs with a well-deserved spa! (1 hour)

Option 1: Say yes to this wonderful paddy field indulgence – Amo Spa

Being always in need of a massage and as a frequent spa guest with memberships around the world, I can tell you a lot about getting an indulging treatment in beautiful Bali. While I’ll usually doze off during a massage or a facial, treatment rooms that offer panoramic views of the great outdoors like the ones at Amo Spa sure add another dimension to a typical procedure and are bound to keep us wide awake while we relax!

But Amo Spa is more than just massages and facials. It is a multi-level spa facility with an unbeatable range of beauty and wellness treatments to pamper your every need and muscle-melting desires.

Of course, we don’t mean to say that a spa break isn’t to help you relax, recharge and refresh. After all, you’re signing up for ultimate indulgence and uninterrupted relaxation with phones off! But if the spa has a pond with flamingos, or a ball-pit filled bathtub, and with tropical wallpapers indoors, it would be rude not to take a snap for your social media feed.

Besides very cool technicolor ‘grammable features and the funkiest cocktail creations, you’ll be wowed by Tropicola’s woodfire open kitchen, two swimming pools, and two bars! Take it from us, two is always better than one.

Hunt for this cool bar that’s hidden behind a broken fridge door! – ‘Black Panther’s domesticated cousin’ (3 hours)

Note: The name of the bar listed has been replaced by a nickname, you’ll have to find its real one (surely you didn’t think it was gonna be easy)!

As if Canggu wasn’t cool enough with all its hipster cafes, here comes another unique spot you’ll have to hunt for! Like the best of all secret bars, this bar-in-a-mart does not have much in the way of front door signage – but following instructions doesn’t always get you where you want to be. After all, rules are meant to be ‘broken’! 😉

If you’re brave enough to poke around some unexpected spots in the mart, you might just find yourself in a hip speakeasy bar! The music is ridiculously good, and you’re even allowed to dance on the pool table. Booze? Hella cheap as well. For real!

Scavenger clues:
1. Find your way to the famous Canggu shortcut, and be careful not to end up in the paddy fields!
2. Look out for the smallest and sole mini-mart at the end/beginning (depends on where you are coming from) of the street.
3. If you can’t find the drink you want, why not try somewhere unexpected? The answer’s often in the place you least expect it to be!
4. Also, what’s the cutest bad luck omen you know?

Laze around a day club with endless paddy field views – Jungle Bali Pool Club (2 hours)

Probably the only pool club that is set right in the middle of rice paddy fields in Bali. If you’re tired of expensive entrance fees at beach clubs and prefer somewhere less pretentious and crowded, you’ll love your last moments in Bali to be spent at Jungle Bali Pool Club.

While they have wild pool parties on Fridays and Sundays, weekdays are pretty chill and laid back. The venue is equally fun day or night. With a stunning location, a classic pool club aesthetic of natural wood and white fabric, plus great menu and great service, there’s very little not to like.

You won’t have to fight over sun loungers and they also serve delicious food – their pizza and chocolate lava cake being two favourites!

Best time to travel

  • Bali has a reliable, warm and tropical climate all year round.

  • Temperatures generally linger between 26°C and 28°C, except for places located on higher grounds like Ubud and Bedugul (where it would be more chilly!).

  • The dry season is generally from May to September, and the wet season from October to April.

  • In May, June, September (non-peak period), you will find that prices of accommodation are 30% to 50% cheaper than peak season rates. Plus, you still get great dry season weather most of the time.

  • April and October are great if you enjoy watersports, such as surfing, as the waves are good at this time of year. You might have some refreshing rain showers, but you will also see plenty of sunshine. These are also great months to travel with children as most theme parks and attractions are quieter, and getting around would be less crowded and stressful.

  • Peak season in Bali is July and August, as well as Easter holidays, Christmas and New Year.

Note: Nyepi is the day of silence that falls on the Balinese New Year. All attractions will be closed, and everyone observes a day of fasting and silence. It’s an inspiring spectacle to be part of, but please respect the local rules and culture, and stay indoors while remaining quiet.

Getting around

It’s definitely much more convenient to either stick to the ever-reliable Bluebird taxis, Grab and Go-Jek, or simply opt for reliable car rental options with a driver and/or guide. If you’re absolutely confident about driving in Indonesia, then skip the driver/guide!
