Paksebali Village Tour

Paksebali Village Tour

Welcome to Paksebali Village, a beautiful and enchanting Balinese village located in Dawan District, Klungkung, just one and a half hour away from Ngurah Rai International Airport, in Kuta, Bali.

Here in Paksebali village, guests will find themselves immersed in the serene atmosphere of real Bali, far away from the stress and the hustle-and-bustle of the city. Surrounded by lush green vegetation, clear and clean River Dengen, rolling hills, fresh air, traditional homes, ancient temples and friendly people, Paksebali Village is an untouched gem, a hidden part of Bali from a by-gone era that many are yearning to see. Now, the villagers have opened their hearts and their doors to welcome guests into their enthralling world.

The locals at Paksevillage honour classic Balinese rituals and traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation. Artisans and craftsmen create beautiful and exquisite pieces with their hands, women weave fine and delicate fabrics by hand using looms, farmers work the thriving rice fields that go as far as the eye can see. Birds swoop down to drink from crystal clear ponds and in the night, you can hear the endearing sound of crickets, toads and night-time birds.

Guests visiting PakseBali will receive a traditional Balinese welcome that honours all who enter the village. Registrations take place at Paksebali Homestay, just north of the village’s Satria market where you will receive a welcome drink and a flower necklace. Thereafter, the guided tour begins with a brief exploration of the Paksebali Homestay, a quaint Balinese home with accents from the Dutch colonial era.

Then it’s time to visit to several residents’ homes, where you’ll get to see firsthand how the locals live as you explore the interiors of their homes while interacting with them. Did you know that every Balinese home is created according to a set of rules, very much similar to the Chinese Feng Shui? It is believed that if one were to go against these rules, the inhabitants of the homes will receive negative energy and will be in direct risk of misfortune and disease.

Your tour will take you to witness the intricate process of Endek weaving, the making of the Balinese Gamelan, exploring a traditional Balinese kitchen, participating in the building of a Balinese home, making handicrafts along with the artisans and craftsmen and visiting a local orphanage that comes with its very own beguiling history. Thereafter, a short hike through Unda forest follows before ending at Kali Unda Restaurant where you can rest and relax while enjoying a splendid view of a waterfall.

The tour at Paksebali Village is priced at IDR 150,000 per person for international guests and Rp 75,000 per person for domestic guests and is inclusive of a welcome drink, mineral water throughout the tour, a local guide, and a complete lunch consisting of an appetizer, a main course and dessert.

A tour to Paksebali Village will not only give you an incredible one-of-a-kind insight into the traditional Balinese way of life, you’ll also be supporting and assisting the villagers by elevating their source of income and economy.  To make your reservations, please send an email to paksebalivillage@gmail.comSee you there!

Hotel Or Villa? Choosing Your Perfect Bali Holiday Rental

Hotel Or Villa? Choosing Your Perfect Bali Holiday Rental

When planning for the ultimate Bali getaway, your choice of accommodation is key – what you end up choosing will either make or break your dream holiday. While it is important to choose an accommodation that is within your budget, remember to factor in all the aspects such as creature comforts, day-to-day requirements and amenities that would ensure your Bali holiday remains memorable.

Holiday

Here are some tips on how to choose your ideal holiday home.

Choose Your Location

Location is everything. It will determine your day-to-day activities and other factors such as distance to-and-from airport and other landmarks, access to shopping, spa, restaurants and beach clubs of your choice and of course, transportation. It really depends on what you’re looking achieve from the holiday and how much time you want to spend on the road to get to it – remember, Bali’s infamous traffic can really put your patience to the test!

Those looking for amazing surf and incredible sunsets, narrow your options to the South like Uluwatu, Balangan and Pecatu. Want to be in the hustle and bustle and in the thick of it all? Then Kuta and Legian will be your best bet. For classier neighbourhoods, amazing shopping, divine beach clubs and dining, you’ve got the ever-popular Seminyak, Petitenget and Umalas and of course, Canggu for modern hippy vibes and vegan restaurants. If you want to just relax and stay amidst nature, then Ubud is your best bet. Those who really want to get away from it all can go even further out of South Bali to West Bali, North to Lovina and Singaraja or East to Sidemen, Amed and Tulamben.

Private Villa

Choose Your Accommodation Type

Now that you’ve locked down your preferred location, it’s time to select your accommodation of choice. Bali is awash with a plethora of hotels and villas that will suit a wide range of budgets. The question is, which accommodation option will be perfect for you? You can always choose a hotel that comes with 24-hour service, amenities, facilities and delightful never-ending buffet breakfasts, entertainment and dinners but staying in a villa gives you so much more for your buck! Here are just a few points to consider:

  •  Privacy – you can be sure that you’ll enjoy the utmost privacy that even the most luxurious hotel can’t beat. The entire property will be yours throughout the length of your stay. This means you won’t have to share your space with other travellers or worry about loud neighbours. The entire swimming pool will be yours not to mention garden, gym, sauna, the living room and of course, the kitchen where you’d be free to cook up a storm and make as much mess as you desire!

 

  • Savings – Whether you’re getting a two-bedroom villa or a ten-bedroom villa, you can be sure you’ll get your money’s worth especially if you’re sharing the cost with a group of friends or family. It’s huge savings especially when you factor in food, drinks, babysitting, your very own private pool, kitchen and living space!

 

  • Perfect Location – One of the best things about booking a private villa is that you can rent one in an incredible setting. Here in Bali, there are no shortages of stunning locations, including beachfront, rice fields’ view, cliff top, jungle views and even mountain views. While there are hotels that offer amazing views and location, keep in mind that you will have to share that with a few hundred other guests!

 

  • Beautiful Designs – When staying in a hotel, your only private space will be in your rooms or suites and while these may be extravagant and beautiful, nothing can beat an entire luxury villa all to yourself. You can enjoy endless open spaces extending indoors and outdoors, grand living spaces, entire kitchens, open-air pavilions and of course the gardens. Many villas now offer rooftop spaces for guests to relax, unwind, practice yoga in or even have a party!

 

Now that you know your preferred type of accommodation for your next trip to Bali, let’s get to planning! Check out Puri Asia for the most beautiful, new and newly renovated, modern, contemporary and traditional style villas in various locations and settings throughout the island.

Nusa Lembongan is an unspoilt tropical paradise

Nusa Lembongan is an unspoilt tropical paradise

just eight square kilometres – with little traffic and pollution. The smiling and friendly locals will welcome you to their idyllic surrounds, to their rich and diverse culture, beaches, quaint villages, and Hindu temples.  Located 12km off the coast of Sanur in Bali, Lembongan offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in Indonesia, as well as several world class surf breaks. The quality of dining options is surprisingly high and perhaps above all, this is a great place to just relax. Just 30 minutes by fast boat or 10 minutes via a scenic helicopter ride, Nusa Lembongan is in a group of three islands – Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida lie to the south – and is the island in the group with the most developed tourist accommodation and facilities.

There are several villas option such as :

Villa Casa Del Mar

Villa Casa Del Mar is a stunning three bedroom rental villa located on a low cliff above Sandy Bay, with views of the dramatic ocean below, Bali’s volcanoes and beautiful sunsets. Its luxurious and lively décor along with the spectacular surroundings make this villa perfect for friends and family to relax and get away from it all.

Villa Tranquilla

Sitting on a low cliff-front on the south-western corner of Nusa Lembongan, overlooking the stunning aqua ocean lays Villa Tranquilla. As the name suggests, this getaway is peaceful, tranquil and will ensure you feel like you are making the most of island living. Whether you are a couple or a group of family or friends this four bedroom villa for rent has something for everyone and with its relaxed yet sumptuous décor you may never want to leave.

Villa Voyage

Villa Voyage is five-bedroom villa which is located on absolute beachfront property in the idyllic tropical island setting of Nusa Lembongan. This five-bedroom villa boasts gorgeous sea vistas, glamorous ‘luxe nomad’ themed interiors, gourmet cuisine, and professional staff focused on spoiling their guests. Farah Khan, whose fashion creations are favoured by many Hollywood celebrities, has styled Villa Voyage as a barefoot luxury abode, while maintaining the old world charm of coconut-wood floors, bamboo, thatched alang-alang roof and driftwood lamps in a tropical island setting metres from the white-sand beach.

Villa Seascape

Villa Seascape is a stunning home on the ocean’s edge that is set to raise the bar for contemporary tropical living. Seascape is the perfect name for this spectacular villa, which offers expansive ocean vistas from its prime beachfront position. Bali-based Italian architect Valentina Audrito shaped the ultra-modern design with her signature playful use of space, soaring ceilings and creative blend of natural and fabricated material. The result is a laid-back-beach-house-meets-luxury-loft-living vibe that encourages guests to kick off their Jimmy Choos in favour of uber-cool (but uncompromisingly comfortable) barefoot bliss.
