Departure information

Amble between Bali’s rice paddies, take a traditional cooking class and laze on tiny castaway islands. This itinerary is a brilliant mix of ancient culture, gorgeous scenery and pure relaxation, giving you a flash of the real Bali before ending up on the dreamy beaches of the Gili Islands. Sleep in a beautiful palace, explore the sleepy, authentic east coast and set course for the white sands of the Gilis, where strictly no cars and no worries are allowed.

Responsible tourism: Bali vacations, rice terraces & beaches


Throughout this itinerary we’ve selected small-scale, authentic accommodation with plenty of local charm. By using small-scale hotels and guest-houses we reduce the impact on the environment compared with larger properties.

We’re particularly proud of our accommodation near the village of Munduk, which operates as an eco-hotel. Not only do they strive to reduce their own impact on the local environment, but they are also involved in conservation projects in the Munduk area and involve the local villagers as much as possible.

Meanwhile, in our offices in sunny Brighton we’re also trying to do our bit. We work hard to consciously recycle as much waste as possible. We’ve even managed to implement a system to ensure our food waste is composted instead of ending up in landfill.

Our local partners in Indonesia are also on board with the need to recycle. They donate used paper to local people who make a living by collecting waste items.


As well as operating as an eco-hotel, our accommodation in Munduk involves the people of Munduk village as much as possible. This is done not only through employment of the local villages in the guesthouse but also by engaging them in activities which help to preserve the local area. They also encourage and support the villagers to maintain their cultural heritage through dance, music and crafts.

During this itinerary, you'll also visit the local cottage industries of Ubud. One of these is a local coffee plantation where you'll learn about the art of coffee production. The plantation provides employment for the local community and you can buy coffee directly from the plantation's shop.

In Candidasa you'll discover the taste of traditional Indonesian cuisine during a cookery class. The class is run by the local people and all the ingredients are grown in the local area, including tasty organic veggies.

In Indonesia we support a local project and give you the chance to make a small donation when you book with us. We are really proud to support a school fund for girls in east Bali set up by a Dutch couple in Seraya. With the help of their guests, Els and Hans have set up the fund to provide secondary school scholarships for young girls from underprivileged families. On Bali, young boys are encouraged to continue their education after primary school but there’s often not enough money to send girls to school. Els and Hans are involved in the education of local girls and work together with the teachers to determine which girls are eligible for a scholarship.
