Hours on the beach
The hotel is perfectly located on the shores of one of Bali's picturesque beaches. It's easy to get lost in the view, but if you look a little closer, you can find a range of activities that can keep you occupied for hours if not days. Surfing is a popular activity on Bali, so there are numerous professional surf schools for anyone wanting to learn.
There's more fun to be had on the water than just riding fibreglass. Banana boating and parasailing are available, along with a range of other exciting activities. If all you want to do is kick back on the sand, you don't need to roam far to find a nice spot in the sun.
