The ultimate Bali guide

13th May 2020

Bali is probably the most perfect location for all kinds of occasions; whether you’re travelling solo; with a group of friends or with your partner for a special celebration, the only way to really describe it is Heaven on earth! Bali was my main honeymoon destination and probably the best holiday of my life (not that I’ve been on many haha). In this blog post, I will share my top 5 things to do in Bali in no particular order & some additional info regarding where I stayed and some of my top tips so keep reading!



1. Enjoy your resort

If you’re staying at a lovely villa resort then definitely make the most of it and get your money’s worth! Spend a day using the facilities/activities provided by the resort. I advise visiting the resorts spa and spending the day really taking in your villa, especially if you have an indoor pool! You could also try any one of the many activities offered by the resort, I chose to go horse riding (Not every resort has this option) which you can get included in your accommodation package if you go for a package deal when booking!

I stayed at Komaneka at Keramas Beach during part of my stay in Bali and I honestly have never came across such a stunning resort in my life. Not only was Keramas beach absolutely breathtaking but the resort offered so many activities which were already on my bucket list.

Although we didn’t go for a package with horse riding we were able to add that activity for such a bargain price (add price) & the experience was everything and more.

Sidenote: Me and my homeboy Bron really bonded haha.

2. Visit the beaches

Bali is full of breathtaking beaches and above all it is completely free to spend the day taking in all the sunshine and enjoy long walks along the beach! (+ if you can swim, unlike me, its a great plus).

There are also plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beach after the wide range of available water sports such as parasailing, scuba diving, and Jet skiing.

Jimbaran beach is known to be one of the best beaches in Bali for their amazing sunset view and also for serving the best fresh seafood! It is the most stunning beach ever & definitely worth visiting because even pictures won’t do it justice.

3. Monkey Forest in Ubud

Ubud is well known for its Monkey forrest. Some of the monkeys can be a little aggressive but as long as you don’t trigger them they are pretty adorable! Once you go deeper into the Forest you will be able to find plenty of cute locations for pictures.

Especially with Bali’s amazing constant sunshine, the photo opportunities are endless! Just follow the instructions you are given at the start before entering the Forest and it is truly an experience you won’t regret!

4. Visit another island

Since you are already in Bali why don’t you make the most of it and visit another island? There are plenty of other Islands within a close distance of 2 hours on a speedboat or a 40 minute flight, win-win if you ask me.

Once I finished exploring Bali, I went over to Lombok on a speedboat and stayed at Katamaran Resort. Lombok is another beautiful Island mainly known for their pearls.

Although I was only in Lombok for 4 days, It definitely made my original Bali trip amazing because if I never came to Bali I may have never visited this small little island.

5. Bali Swings

I have the worst fear of heights but the Bali Swings were out of this universe amazing! Although I didn’t quite build up the courage to go on it on my own it was one of the most unreal experiences ever!

It is definitely a fun experience whether you are going to Bali alone, with friends or with your partner.

After you are done on the swings you are able to collect professional pictures for a really cheap price and then explore the rest of the amazing photo opportunities!

Now that you have a few more things to add to your itinerary for your Bali trip, here are some tips which will help you make the most of your holiday!

  1. Book a driver in advance for your trips (a day before), and schedule the driver for the whole day. A full day driver worked out to about literally £30 per day for us which is cheaper than me getting into central London from home haha. The driver that I used was a lovely man who not only drove us to our destinations but took photos for us, recommended activities and restaurants to eat at, picked us up from and dropped us off to the airport. I cannot recommend the lovely Tora enough. He was literally the best driver anyone could ask for and really added to our experience! You can contact him directly on Whatsapp on this number +62 813 38659444
  2. There are plenty of ATMs around Ubud for you to withdraw cash. I would recommend using a MONZO card as that will give you the best possible exchange rate!
  3. Enjoy your time and make the most of it with no regrets, do as much as you can and also keep some time aside for relaxing. The spa treatments available are absolutely phenomenal.
