A Bali Travel Story

A Bali Travel Story

Bali has a way of connecting us back to our true spirit of self, through all the senses.

There is something so intoxicating the moment you step off the plane, the warm air, combined with the smell of plumeria and incense.  The welcoming “Selamant Detang” smiles.

Island life connects you to back nature, from the ocean, the jungle to the mountains. The abundance of fresh coconut water, mangos and other of mother nature treats.

The Bali community has a deep seating in the arts, rituals, and spirit world, one which we feel truly blessed to be embraced by.

The island is highly dependent on tourism, and the pandemic has created a lot of challenges economically and socially.  Despite the challenges the strength of the banjar system, a deep-rooted system based in local community has helped keep spirits high and hopes for a better tomorrow.

The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, Indonesia, is known as a center for traditional crafts and dance. The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ancient holy sites include the intricately carved Goa Gajah (“Elephant Cave”) and Gunung Kawi, with its rock-cut shrines.

Over the last 15 years Bali has been like a second mother to myself and our family. It has grown us in ways we could have never imagined. Every journey back is better the next. It’s been where our business has flourished and our lives have been enriched.
