Welcome to the beautiful Indonesian Island of Bali! Upon arrival at the airport (technically in the wee hours of July 6), you will be greeted by your driver in the arrival area and transferred to your hotel in Seminyak. (This service is on a private basis.)
In Seminyak, you will find a wide choice of elegant boutiques and glamorous shops. In fact, it is the most cosmopolitan part of Bali. The area is full of chic cocktail bars and gourmet restaurants, that represent the very best of the island’s high-class facilities. Bali is well known for its dinning and party scene and Seminyak is the hub, where you can indulge in the best dining experiences, before hitting the town for fiesta. Whether you are looking for luxurious romance, vibrant nightlife or simple adventure, Seminyak is the place to be!
Sleep in after your late night arrival and enjoy the comforts of your private pool villa and beach resort.
This afternoon, you will be met at your hotel and taken on a guided tour of Uluwatu Temple. Perched 70 meters on the tip of a cliff overlooking the bay, the view from above of the rough crashing sea is incredible. After exploring the temple, a Kecak Dance performance will take place for your entertainment. This dance is the quickest way to assimilate into the magical world of Bali. It is a unique pre-Hindu dance, derived from the choral element of the trance dances Sanghyang Dedari. During the show you will understand and follow the story of Prince Rama, who is trying to rescue his wife Sita with the help of a monkey army. No instruments are used, only a chanting "choir" of men who play the monkey role. Once it is over, your journey continues with a transfer to Jimbaran for an extraordinary dinner experience. Enjoy a delicious seafood dinner served right on the beach with a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean as your backdrop.
Enjoy the morning free at your leisure. Take a dip in the pool, enjoy the spa services at your hotel, or head to the nearby beach.
In the late afternoon, your private driver guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Tanah Lot for sunset. This seaside temple is an incredible place to watch the sun go down over the sea. After a serene experience at Tanah Lot, you will be driven back to your hotel.
Today you will embark on a canyoning adventure in Kerenkali (join small group basis - hotel pick up at 6:15am). If you had to choose only one sporty canyon with water in Bali, Kerenkali would be the perfect choice! Located in Bali's northern region, Kerenkali is doable throughout the year.
First enjoy a sequence of jumps, water slides, short rappels with gorges made of volcanic rock, caves and a sulphurate water basin coming out from the underground. The next part is a little more extreme with the enchanting rappel descents along waterfalls. You will jump from as high as 10m (if you dare). Take a swim, then at the end a Balinese lunch will be served. (The days activities are weather dependent (when there is no water, you descend a dry canyon) and determined by the wide range of gorges, ravines or waterfalls landscapes.)
After finishing today's challenging adventure you will be transferred to your hotel in Ubud in the late afternoon. (Your driver will bring your bags to the hotel for you while you are canyoning).

For this extremely early morning trek, you will depart your hotel even before dawn breaks, around 1:30am. Upon reaching your starting point on the mountain, you will follow along the straightforward path, to the center of the crater for approximately 2 hours. Every step of the way will prove to be more and more worth your early morning start.

Located 22 miles east of Bali, lies the island of Lombok. Lombok is inevitably compared to its better-known western neighbor, although it differs considerably in many respects: physically, culturally, linguistically and historically. Lombok's charm and romance truly lies in its century-old, tranquil coastal areas with virgin white beaches and green mountains.
Towards the north coast of Lombok, you will find the Gili-islands. These are the bounty islands from paradise! Beautiful white beaches, crystal clear blue seas and a colorful coral reef, stretching for a few kilometers starting right off the beach.
During this day trip, you will be transferred to the harbor, where you will board the boat to cruise to Gili Air. This journey by boat will take approximately 30 minutes. Here you will enjoy a day of sunbathing and snorkeling. While snorkeling you may encounter sea turtles, dolphins, flying fish, manta rays and colorful underwater wildlife. On the way back to your hotel, watch hundreds of small sailing boats depart for the fishing grounds making for a beautiful sunset spectacle.
Today, our guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby at 9:30am then drive you to your group Cooking class at Pondok Anggrek Putih. Experience the different flavor of "Indonesian cuisine" and learn about local products. From spicy local "Lombok food" with hot chiles and herbs to the sweetness of Javanese food made with fresh coconut milk, palm sugar and peanuts. Discover the unique flavors and fruity sourness of lime, lemongrass and tamarind.
Classes consist of a minimum of 2 people to a maximum of 7 people. Cooking classes commence daily at 10:00am and end about 1:30pm after having lunch together. The classes are a fun educational and enjoyable way to learn about Indonesian food and culture.
We have left the final day of your honeymoon free, to spend as you wish. Staying at such a beautiful beach paradise in Lombok, you are sure to have an unforgettable day. Grab your camera and capture some memories that you can look back on and smile!
Sadly, your beautiful honeymoon adventure in Bali and Lombok has come to an end.
