Your first two nights will be spent in Hong Kong, staying at the sophisticated Harbour Grand Kowloon. Located along the scenic Victoria Harbour waterfront, this classy hotel offers a cool space to unwind in between experiencing the Tsim Sha Tsui district’s vibrant nightlife. With impressive views and minimalist décor, the hotel oozes class.
Whilst in Hong Kong, we’d recommend exploring the lively Tsim Sha Tsui area. Venture to the Avenue of Stars – Hong Kong’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, go shopping in designer boutiques near Canton Road and diverse local shops, and rejuvenate with a dip in Harbour Grand Kowloon’s enticing pool and spa. There’s plenty of laidback eateries to try nearby, but you shouldn’t miss the delicious Japanese BBQ cuisine at the hotel’s Robatayaki restaurant.
Overnight: Harbour Grand Kowloon
Next, you’ll travel to Ubud, where you will spend three nights enjoying the charming Wapa Di Ume resort. Tucked away amongst sweeping rice fields and lush gardens, this rustic retreat is a big change from the city-based hotel before. The ambience here is truly peaceful, with an infinity pool overlooking the rice paddies, and natural materials including alang-alang grass roofs and bamboo décor.
There’s much to do at this unspoilt oasis. Revitalise your mind, body and soul at the Rainforest Spa and with a lovely outdoor yoga class, before enjoying a Balinese cooking class or trekking across the rice paddies. Just a 10-minute drive away you’ll find a plethora of ancient temples, galleries and museums to discover, or you could venture further and explore the incredible Sacred Monkey Forest.
Overnight: Wapa Di Ume
Your last five nights will be spent on Nusa Dua Beach in Bali, staying at the eco-luxury resort Melia Bali. This gorgeous resort is undeniably impressive, boasting a huge lagoon-style pool, fabulous rooms and suites that fuse Balinese tradition with contemporary stylings, and a delicious array of restaurants. But the most impressive part is its distinction of EarthCheck Platinum – the highest level of recognition in the sustainable travel and tourism industry.
Situated in a high-end location, you’ll be only 15-minutes from the area’s luxury shopping centres and innovative restaurants - or you could go the cultural route and explore the fascinating temple complex Puja Mandala. For the nature-lovers, the boat trip to Serangan Island is brilliant, offering the chance to visit the amazing Turtle Conservation and Education Centre.
