It’s almost the end of the year when it’s time for Christmas and New Year’s party. Families reunited. People gather around. The perfect time to catch up with all the loved one and the perfect time to travel because it’s holiday season.
After a hard time at work or school, you probably want to pack your things and just go somewhere. Holiday is every person needs. Sometimes you probably want a very adventurous holiday, but sometimes you would need a super relaxing holiday. It’s your choice really. So, here I will be giving you a list of places you could go to have a relaxing holiday in Bali.
The first choice is a boutique resort. Basically, a boutique resort is a special resort that will give you the 3P aspect; peace, picture perfect view, and personalized attention. When you are staying in a boutique resort, you basically can’t go anywhere because it’s usually located quite far from the city so you could get your peace and the view that most of other resort and hotel doesn’t have.
You just stay at the boutique resort because they have everything you need from food to entertainments. Usually, two of the best things to do in a boutique resort are swimming in their pool since a boutique resort usually located in such a beautiful place then the view must have been amazing, and the spa that will make feel so relaxed.
Those are the reason why staying in a boutique resort would make you feel very relaxed, it will make the most of your quality time with your loved ones and yourself. There are quite a few amounts of a boutique resort in Bali, like W Retreat & Spa Bali, Ayana Resort Bali, and others. Although the price is quite expensive, but I think that it will worth the experiences.
The second choice is to go to a hidden beach. Bali is famous from its nature beauty, especially the beach. There are famous beaches in Bali like Kuta Beach, Seminyak Beach, Nusa Dua Beach, and the list of course doesn’t stop here. Besides all of the famous beaches, Bali also has the treasures of all their hidden beaches.
It’s a hidden beach afterall means it’s located somewhere quite isolated, hidden somewhere. If you choose to go find some hidden beach for your next holiday, it has it’s own advantages and disadvantages.
The disadvantages are since it’s hidden means it would be quite hard to find the beach and the facilities near the beach won’t be as good as the facilities near a famous beach. Meanwhile, the advantages are because not a lot of people know about the beach that the beach would be less people there and quite, a perfect place to relax, and since not a lot of people have been there, the view would be very beautiful and it’s still clean.
If you don’t want to find a hidden beach yourself, then you could stay in a hotel or resort that has their own private beach. There are also quite a lot of hotel/resort in Bali that has their own private beach, such as The St. Regis Bali Resort, Grand Hyatt Bali, Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort, etc.
The third choice to go to a temple. Bali is a very open place for tourist but also still very rich in their cultures. Majority of the people who live there are believes in Hindu religion, so there are lots of temples there. Temple is a great place to feel relaxed because it’s very beautiful, the temple itself and the surroundings, you could absorb all of the cultures while in there, of course being there would make you feel relaxed.
The most famous temple is Tanah Lot but there are too many people visit Tanah Lot, so it will be quite hard to feel relaxed there. Don’t worry, there are still a lot of temples that you could visit such as, Uluwatu Temple, Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, etc.
Last but not least, is to live with the locals. There is one unique place called Bali Eco Stay where you stay in the middle of the jungle with rice paddies around, really blending in with the nature, a serious experience with the Bali’s culture. This is a very unique way to spend your holiday and relaxing.
I personally think that Bali is a great place to spend your holiday. There are many ways that you could actually do to feel relaxed while in here. One tip that is very important is to choose the right area to stay as some places are full of bar and would be really crowded.
