Bali and the Gili Islands

12 nights from £1,799 per person Including Flights

Overview

Start with a stay in tranquil Segara Village. This charming hotel is set right on the famous beach at Sanur in five acres of beautiful tropical gardens. Stroll the beach boardwalk that stretches several kilometres, enjoying the views from the cafes and watching the fishermen haul their catch.

The Gili Islands beckon from just over the water, and this unspoilt paradise is actually very easy to reach by boat from the harbour close by at Benoa. The ferry takes around two hours to Gili Trawangan where you will check in to the Vila Ombak. Known affectionately at Gili T, this is the liveliest of the island chain with many beach bars and restaurants to sample, most with true toes-in-the-sand, swaying in a hammock, beachfront locations.

Next it’s a short boat ride over to Gili Meno, the smallest and most tranquil of the Gili islands for your stay at MAHAMAYA boutique resort. Enjoy sunsets from your boutique resort, walk around the island (or use the complimentary bikes) to find the turtle sanctuary and try the best snorkelling spots, right off the resort’s beach.

You will board the ferry again, disembarking at a port further north in Bali for your final destination, Candidasa, on the east coast of Bali where you will find some of the islands best diving and snorkelling; back on land there are rice fields to explore, handicrafts to haggle over and temples to discover.

This is merely an example itinerary and can be adjusted to suit your bespoke travel needs. You may wish to spend longer in any of these resorts or swap your final beach resort for an inland stay in the cultural magnet of Ubud.

Day 1 

Arrive into Bali's Denpasar airport after an overnight flight from the UK and transfer to your hotel in Sanur for the next 3 nights stay. Enjoy the next 3 nights relaxing on Sanur's beach and admiring the five acres of beautiful tropical gardens at the Segara Village resort.

Overnight: Segara Village Resort

Day 4

This morning a transfer will collect you from your hotel for the short drive to the port (the exact time of the speedboat from Bali will be advised after booking; most depart East Bali between 09.00-10.00am). You will arrive at Gili Trawangan harbour just before lunch and head over to Vila Ombak for check in. The easiest and most fun way to travel the very short distance from the harbour to the hotel is to take a local Cidomo (horse & cart); this is the most used form of transport here. After checking in, you can enjoy lunch and a swim and settle into the laid back life of Gili T. During your time on the island you can enjoy a snorkelling trip to see the tropical underwater life and if you're lucky you may even spot a sea turtle.

Overnight: Vila Ombak

Day 7

After spending a few days relaxing on Gili Trawangan, now its time to try the smaller and less inhabitated island of Gili Meno. Take another Cidomo back to the port where you will be transferred by Speedboat directly to the beach at Mahamaya. This boutique and intimate resort will have you relaxed and enjoying island life from the moment you arrive.

Overnight: Mahamaya Boutique Resort

Day 10

After three days of island bliss, check out around noon to join the speedboat service back to Bali. When you disembark in Bali, you will be transferred by road to your hotel at Candidasa, on the East Coast of Bali. The resort here is gorgeously charming, complete with a beachside restaurant, cosy bar, lobby lounge, two refreshing swimming pools, and blissful massage pavilions, all set within a coconut grove garden that gently rolls on to a beautiful private white sand beach.

Overnight: Candi Beach Resort & Spa

Day 13

A transfer will collect you in time for your return flight to the UK from Bali's Denpasar airport.

  • International flights
  • All accommodation as listed
  • Return airport transfers
  • Return boat transfers to the Gili Islands

What's not included:

Please note that the local transport on the Gili Islands is by horse and cart or bicycle, you may need cash with you if you wish to travel by these modes but don't worry they are small enough that most things are within walking distance.

Our suggested hotels for this itinerary are...

Segara Village Resort, Sanur

This charming hotel sits on the famous beach at Sanur in five acres of beautiful tropical gardens. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, swimming in the sea, taking part in water sports or joining in the family activities.

Vila Ombak

Villa Ombak is wonderfully located on a private beach within walking distance of the art market and local restaurants around lively Gili T Harbour.

MAHAMAYA Boutique Resort, Gili Meno

Get away from it all with a tropical island escape on the island of Gili Meno; snorkel with turtles, watch the sunset from the beach bar and swim in a freshwater pool at this little gem of a hotel.

Candi Beach Resort & Spa

Our own little secret and what a gem. Tucked away far from the madding crowds is The Candi Beach Resort & Spa. Think lovely pools, gorgeous lawns with oodles of space, a non crowded sea and far reaching island views.

Nyepi Day

On the 25th March 2020 it is Nyepi Day, an important Hindu celebration marking the Balinese New Year.  Meaning “Day of Silence” this is a day of reflection and any activity that may prevent that is prohibited. The day is marked with a public holiday and restrictions are imposed on any kind of noise, travel, entertainment or work. Although tourists are free to do as they wish within hotels, nobody is allowed to leave the hotel premises between the hours of 6am and 6am the following day. Hotels will remain operational but with limited staff and Bali airport will remain closed.

Please note that the Gili Islands are refreshingly vehicle-free. Motorised traffic is banned by local order, and only the occasional cyclist is likely to nip past. The islands may be small enough to walk around, but it’s worth taking a ride in a cidomo, a mode of transport that’s original to here and nearby Lombok.
