Your villa manager and his team have a wealth of information about Bali’s attractions and things to do, while a special rate car and driver is on hand eight hours per day to take you wherever you wish to go. Do also ask the staff about the local area as they know it well and will give you an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life.

In the meantime, here’s a taste of some of the activities on offer within reach of Villa Sabana.

  1. There are several surf schools in Bali, mainly based in and around Kuta and Legian, where young and old can learn to surf or brush up on their skills. The Canggu Surf School operates along the nearby beaches of Batu Bolong, Berawa and Echo beach.
  2. If you’ve always dreamed of galloping along a beach or riding through villages bordered by rice fields, now’s your chance. Kuda P Stables, just 300 metres from Villa Sabana can arrange horse riding tours, as well as children’s riding lessons.
  3. Visit the mystical Hotel Tugu (Bali’s first museum-hotel) studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and with an award-winning spa offering age-old Eastern therapies. The hotel’s restaurants offer authentic Chinese and Indonesian fine dining, as well as an international menu, in a variety of unique settings. At the rustic Waroeng Tugu you can taste the traditional Javanese and Balinese cuisine of bygone centuries.
  4. Nearby Echo Beach has become the new hub for not only tourists, but locals and expats alike. This lively ocean-front strip of warungs, cafes and restaurants, only a few minutes’ drive from Villa Sabana, offers a wide range of dining options from chic and sceneful to cheap and cheerful. Try The Beach House for fresh seafood barbecues every night and live music on Sundays, and do check out Café Dian, one of the newest arrivals on the block. There’s also numerous fashion and surf shops, a chemist and a deli/mini mart here.
  5. Make a pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets. Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is best savoured at sunset; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu Priests (and watch out for the monkeys, who are very adept at helping themselves to anything from snacks to sunglasses and even cameras!)
  6. Desa Seni at Berawa village, is an eco-friendly village resort providing an authentic Indonesian experience through the exploration of culture, art and yoga. The resort offers a wide variety of yoga classes and also has its own spa.
  7. Play a round at the unbelievably scenic Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Bordered by ocean and rice fields and just down from Tanah Lot sea temple, no wonder this championship-standard course (designed by golf legend, Greg Norman) is frequently voted number one in Asia.
  8. Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
  9. Drive westwards to explore the charming Tabanan Regency, revealing terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities. Or head north to explore the volcanic lakes near the mountain town of Bedugul, including Lake Bratan with its photogenic and stunningly positioned Pura Ulun Danu – one of Bali’s most important temples.
  10. Fashionistas, trendies, shop-a-holics and foodies should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, chic boutiques and international restaurants and bars including, Potato Head Beach club, La Lucciola and Bali’s trendy Ku Dé Ta. For furniture, antiques and homeware stores go for a wander around the streets of nearby Kerobokan.
