Find Inner Peace in Blissful Bali

Bali is everything you picture when you imagine an island. Seemingly untouched beaches gently overlapped by the crystal clear ocean waves, with a backdrop of tropical rainforests and towering green peaks in the distance. Basically, if you want to live inside a postcard, you’d struggle to do better than this Indonesian region. Bali, itself an island, is surrounded by numerous little islets offering a little more serenity amid the popular-with-tourist hotspots. Our Blissful Bali trip – a 12-day epic exploring the region’s many facets – spends a number of days on Gili Trawangan, including three nights at a glorious spa resort. We’ll spend time snorkelling with the abundance of sea turtles, as well as the stone statues lining the seabed near Gili Meno. You’ll also get plenty of free time to embrace island living – chill on the beach, try some yoga, or rent a bike and explore this tiny little island.
