Best things to do in Bali

Bali really has something for everyone. It has the perfect combination of adventure and romance, spiritual beauty and spectacular scenery, wonderful shopping and relaxing pampering, with world class dining and divine sunsets to top it off.

Our very own luxury Bali Villas, Villa Sungai & Sungai Gold are the perfect base for you to explore the surrounds of Bali. Tucked away in the traditional village of Cepaka in Bali, you are far removed from the hustle and bustle of busy and touristy Kuta, but close enough to do day trips to Seminyak for shopping, dining in Canggu and water sports at Echo Beach, returning to your ‘home away from home’ at the end of each day for a massage, a long deep bath, and private dinner in your Villa. Guests tell us that driving back home to the Villa through the rice fields at sunset is always special, taking in the sights and sounds of Village life and easing you into the holiday spirit and getting a snapshot of the true Balinese way of life.

We love to hear what activities you get up to during your day, and we are always happy to plan special outings and day trips from Villa Sungai. We have been collecting a few of our guest’s most favourite things to do while staying at Villa Sungai and we thought you might like them too.

Here is some of our Best Things to Do In Bali recommendations to ensure you have a very memorable stay in Bali.

We at SUNGAI are always on the lookout for complementary experiences and special Bali tours for our clients. We are very pleased to have been introduced to this latest in our recommended Bali tours – a Luxury Charter sailing the Indonesian Archipelago and beyond. The staffing and capacity are uncannily similar to those at SUNGAI PLATINUM (SUNGAI taken in conjunction with SUNGAI GOLD) to give 5/6 king guest rooms sleeping up to 12 adults (children in their parents’ room)…we have virtually identical capacities and the same number of staff that includes chefs, dining, bar and rooms staff.

We are delighted to be able to introduce new Bali Tours and wonderful experiences to our clients and can arrange preferential arrangements if you enquire through us (as with all outside providers that we use or recommend no commissions are ever accepted).

El Aleph offers unmatched stability and comfort. A symphony in 100-year old tropical hardwoods – her teak finishes more reminiscent of a fine guitar than of a ship – no detail has been left to chance in ensuring your comfort, safety and enjoyment. From first-time snorkelers to advanced rebreather/nitrox divers, water-skiers and wake-borderers, we offer the full range of activities.

If you book through Villa Sungai, we offer full hire of the yacht for private cruises across the Indonesian Archipelago: Raja Ampat, Komodo Flores, Bali, Banda Sea, Sulawesi, and West Papua New Guinea. She is available for private luxury yacht charters – dive/snorkel the rich coral reefs, anchor in secluded lagoons, enjoy private barbecues on deserted beaches, and experience the fascinating cultural and natural diversity which is East Indonesia.

We would love to talk to you more about booking this wonderful and unique Bali experience and more Bali tours during your stay. Please contact us for more information
