Bali remains a sleek sanctuary for surfers, shoppers and solace-loving vacationers.

SEE Any of Bali’s traditional arts and crafts classes are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture. Many resorts and hotels provide complimentary passes to these short workshops. Discover coconut weaving, making herbal tonics, or a trek through Bali’s picturesque padi fileds. You’ll be glad for the extra skill.

DO Catch a surf. Thousands of miles of the island’s coastline get consistent, powerful, swells. Here’s where you get the best waves on earth – Echo Beach, but with its rocky reefs below, it will certainly test your confidence. Other popular spots are Padma Beach and anywhere along the beaches of Kuta.

SHOP You are good with anything that is handmade. Our personal favourite are the spa and beauty products made from local herbs and spices. From massage oils to cold-pressed soaps and the boreh (a scrub pack), there is plenty to get you hunting.

STAY Ubud – Bali’s artistic and cultural centre – is Bali in a nutshell. A stay at Alila Ubud’s hilltop boutique resort gives you an enchanting view of Ubud’s valley and the Ayung River. Just 56 rooms make this property exclusive, and don’t leave without trying any of the spa’s magical treatments.
