5 Rejuvenating Retreats in Bali
Set in the picturesque countryside of Ubud, Villa Alamanda oozes plenty of oriental charm. You will find it in tasteful touches throughout the home, such as the villa’s intricate wooden structure, beautiful ornaments and colourful paintings. In this tropical paradise, you will want to take dips in the pool, sunbathe upon the loungers, snooze under the airy pavilions and tuck into a feast of Indonesian dishes outdoors.

Charming living spaces tastefully decorated with wooden fixtures, airy pavilions inviting plenty of tropical sunlight and Ubud’s cool breezes, and a lush deck featuring a stunning infinity pool await travellers at Villa Melati. The villa is located a short five minutes’ drive away from central Ubud, but there are high chances that you’ll find excuses to stay in and lounge about all day. And why not, when a traditional bamboo bale serves as your daily breakfast spot, showers are taken in a spectacular bathroom set within a cave, and unobstructed panoramas of the rice fields and Ayung River can be enjoyed all day?

At Villa Dedaren, you get the best of both worlds: you will spend your days surrounded by plenty of greenery in the villa’s lush tropical garden, and enjoy easy access to the popular Bingin Beach. The villa’s excellent location will put you within close proximity to a variety of attractions, such as mystical Uluwatu temple and the well-loved seafood restaurants of Jimbaran, but you may be tempted to stay indoors to enjoy the many delights of this vacation home. Take laps in the pool to clear your mind, soak up the sun upon the pillowy loungers and fire up a mean barbecue feast for a fun-filled party by the poolside.

A rejuvenating retreat means getting lots of rest, peace and quiet during your holiday, so avoid the crowds by venturing over to the serene eastern region of Bali. In the quaint town of Amed lies an oceanfront villa – a tranquil home that ensures you get plenty of sea breeze, strolls along the beach and tropical sun each day. Opportunities to snorkel and dive are abounding here, so dive down deep into the depths of the water to set sight on myriad marine creatures. At the end of the day, put the spa facilities at Villa Segara Tari to good use, and let the soothing touch of the massage therapist relax your body.

When you conjure up images of a restful retreat, you are likely to picture a place just like Villa Sanak – a rustic home featuring traditional design elements, set against a scenic backdrop made up of emerald paddy fields and rugged mountains. Let your cares and concerns melt away as you get back in touch with nature; the long treks through rainforests, tropical jungles and rice terraces will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. Find a greater peace of mind by engaging in meditation or yoga at the breezy meditation deck.
