Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Bali, Transfer to Ubud, Relaxing In-Room Balinese Massage 

Relax after your long flight with a traditional Balinese massage

Welcome to Indonesia! Your flight lands on the island of Bali, part of the Lesser Sunda Islands and known for its expansive landscapes, ornate temples, and rich cultural traditions. Your private driver will collect you from the airport and transfer you to the town of Ubud, where you'll check in at Villa Cella Bella, a luxury resort surrounded by jungle greenery. Amenities abound here, with suites and villas that offer private pools, terraces, and options for garden or jungle views, as well as your own staff, an infinity pool, and a romantic lovers' nest area. 

After check-in, take advantage of those amenities with dinner in your room, followed by a Balinese massage. Your staff will set up the massage tables in your room, and you can unwind and decompress in privacy—the perfect way to destress after a long day of travel. Tonight, relax at the hotel's infinity pool or sky hammock, or take a swim in your own private pool!

Day 2: Balinese Cooking Class, Tour Tegalalang Rice Terraces & Alas Harum Bali

Discover Ubud's renowned Tegalalang Rice Terraces

Discover Bali's history and culture today, starting with a traditional cooking class that takes place in a local home. Your private driver will collect you from your hotel and you'll meet your local chefs, visiting the local market with them for the fresh ingredients needed for your class. Return to their home and prepare some of the region's most notable dishes, including lawar (meat mixed with vegetables), nasi goreng (rice), and satay (grilled meat). Chop vegetables and herbs, grind spices, and learn how to cook on an open fire. Afterward, sit down for lunch with your hosts. 

Later, take a private tour of the picturesque Tegalalang Rice Terraces and Alas Harum Bali, a coffee plantation that offers tours, tastings, and outdoor activities. Meet your guide and head to Tegalalang, a 20-minute drive from central Ubud. This UNESCO World Heritage site consists of a series of cascading rice terraces, with scenic lookouts that showcase the endless greenery. Stop in the villages of Pejeng and Campuhan to see more rice terraces, then continue to Alas Harum Bali.

Tour the plantation and see how they cultivate their coffee beans, then learn about the process of making traditional luwak coffee. The plantation also offers guests the use of a large, three-tiered pool, and adventurous visitors can try their zipline ride (which takes you across nearly 1,000 ft /305 m of jungle canopy), sky biking, or take a ride on their swing bed (perfect for couples!). End the day with some delicious coffee samples and snacks, then return to Ubud for the evening.

Day 3: Sunrise Trek to Mount Batur, Afternoon Flower Bath

Take in endless views of the Balinese countryside with a sunrise hike up Mount Batur

The day starts before dawn as you meet your private guide around 3:00 am and drive to Mount Batur, an active volcano located just northwest of Mount Agung. The top of the mountain is known for its spectacular sunrises, and you'll have a chance to see one firsthand as you start your ascent, trekking to more than 5,500 feet (1,700 m) above sea level.

The hike takes around two hours, and at the top, you'll watch the sunrise crest the clouds, with views of Lake Batur and the volcanoes of Abang, Agung, and Batukaru in the distance. Hike back down and if you'd like, make a stop at the natural hot springs of Pura Batur on the way back, a great spot to ease aching muscles.

Speaking of aching muscles, this afternoon you'll add a little bliss to your island adventure with a flower bath or pool experience at your hotel. You'll have the option of a soothing bath, with handpicked flowers and essential oils, or the staff can fill your private pool with hundreds of fragrant flower petals, creating a gorgeous design that might just feel too pretty to dive into—but you'll definitely want to take a dip! Have a romantic dinner in your room this evening, or visit a local restaurant in Ubud for a traditional meal.

Chat with a local specialist who can help organize your trip.

You're off to Jimbaran this morning, a fishing village and resort town located approximately two hours from Ubud. After hotel checkout, your private driver will collect you for the scenic journey. Arrive and check in at Karma Kandara, a 5-star resort just steps from the beach. This peaceful oasis offers luxury villas decorated in traditional Balinese style, with private pools, sun loungers, and outdoor showers. Take some time to refresh and regroup, then get ready for the ultimate thrill—a private helicopter tour around Bali.

Your driver will transport you to the helipad, where you'll meet your pilot and take off, exploring three islands located just off Bali's east coast: Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. These islands are known for their breathtaking landscapes, crystal-clear waters, and pristine beaches, all of which you'll get to experience from a different perspective.

Soar over Nusa Penida's T-Rex Rock, see Nusa Lembongan's Dream Beach, and take in the secluded coves and lagoons of Nusa Ceningan, as your pilot shares information on the history and legends of the region. After the tour, your driver will return you to your hotel in time for dinner and an evening swim. 

Day 5: Free Morning in Jimbaran, Luxury Sunset Cocktail Cruise

Join a romantic sunset party cruise for drinks and dinner

Today you'll have the chance to slow down and sleep in. When you're ready, head to the resort's clifftop restaurant for a leisurely brunch, or opt for room service enjoyed on your villa's teakwood terrace. The rest of the day is at your leisure—you can spend it lazing around your private pool, nab a cabana on the beach below, or join one of the resort's many activities, like an invigorating yoga class or a relaxed snorkeling tour.

It's party time tonight as you head out on a fun-filled sunset cruise. Your driver will take you to the meeting point, where you'll meet your captain and hop onboard a luxurious yacht, cruising out on the water with cocktails in hand. Sample delicious barbecue treats and canapés, listen to live performances from international DJs, and watch the red and orange-hued sunset as it drops below the horizon. Guests also have the option of adding extras such as dedicated bottle service or various food platters. Dance, drink, and dine as you enjoy a memorable evening on the gentle island waters. 

Day 6: Sun & Surf at Tropical Temptation Beach Club, Oceanfront Dinner at Rock Bar

Have dinner by the ocean after a day of sun and fun

Make the most of your last full day in Indonesia with some beach time. After breakfast at the hotel, your private driver will transport you to the Tropical Temptation Beach Club, located on the shores of Melasti Beach, a gorgeous stretch of white sand known for its clear waters and impressive rock formations. Spend the day indulging in whatever way suits you, from taking a dip in their beachfront pool, sampling delectable food and drink, or hanging out where the DJ is spinning your favorite jams. 

Tonight, don your nicest attire for the ultimate fine dining experience at Rock Bar, one of Bali's premiere restaurants. Located directly on the ocean, with a cliffside entrance and a custom DJ booth carved right into the cliff face, you'll be awed by incredible views alongside impressive cuisine. Sit at the elevated Round Bar and listen to live bands play under the stars, dine on fresh seafood and other local dishes, and sip delicious cocktails as you relish the elegant atmosphere and island vibes. 

Day 7: Free Morning in Jimbaran, Depart Bali

If there's time before your departure today, soak up a bit more sun at the hotel pool or ask your driver to take you to a nearby beach for some swimming or snorkeling. You can also do some last-minute souvenir shopping at one of Jimbaran's boutiques or visit the resort's Karma Spa to make sure you're refreshed before your flight. 

Afterward, you'll say goodbye to beautiful Bali and Indonesia. At the appointed time, you'll be transported to the airport for your journey home. Safe travels!
