The proposed program is the perfect combination of relaxation and sightseeing, enabling you to get to know different parts of Indonesia at a leisurely pace ideal for the family. After a stay in cultural Bali, you will be taken by a speedboat to the tiny island of Gili Meno, where you will be able to enjoy snorkelling and diving. For the last few days, you will have a chance to explore Bali’s less known sister island, Lombok. Lombok has a very rich culture and wonderful beaches, while at the same time remaining practically undiscovered.
Day 1 - Welcome to Bali
Your private driver and English-speaking guide will welcome you warmly when you land in Denpasar. They will then drive you to to the south-west part of Bali – to a lovely rustic village located by the beach. Here you will stay for three nights at the stunning Waka Gangga.Accommodation
Day 2&3 - Explore the Southern part of Bali
Waka Gangga is close to the famous Tanah Lot temple, well-known for its beautiful sunsets, the world-famous Jatiluwih Rice Terraces and the Alas Kedaton where you can see bats and monkeys living side by side. There is also a horse stable nearby where you can try horseback riding on Balinese ponies. Waka Gangga has easy access to the Seminyak and Canggu area. There are also many free activities for Waka Gangga guests, all great for families. These include: traditional Balinese dancing, the making of daily Balinese offerings, hand-crafting of Balinese kites, cycling and many more.
Day 4 - Travel to the cultural capital of Bali - Ubud

Day 5 & 6 - Discover Ubud
In the following days, there are several interesting and exciting options for you to go in for while in Ubud. Gain an appreciation of the Balinese artistic culture by visiting the Neka or Arma Museum and taking in the vast collections of original Balinese artwork found there.

Day 7 - By speedboat off to Gili
This morning, your driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to Padangbai, to board the speedboat to Gili Trawangan.

Day 8 & 9 - Diving around Gili
The next two days you can simply relax and enjoy the beach or take trips to the nearby islands. Only two kilometres long and one kilometre wide, Gili Meno is the smallest of the three Gili islands and by far the most tranquil. It’s possible to walk around the island along the beach, or the paths criss-crossing Gili Meno in under two hours.
Day 10 - Hop to Lombok
Today you will go by local boat to Senggigi in Lombok for a five-night stay at Qunci Villas.Accommodation
Day 11 - 14 - Lombok the quieter sister of Bali
Senggigi and the surrounding area is our favourite part of Lombok. The town is about a 10 minute drive away for shopping and restaurants. You can easily get there by taxi- always ready in front of the Qunci. There is also tonnes to do in Lombok itself: Mt Rinjani trekking, diving, cycling and surfing plus discovering the Sasak culture – or planning a trip to one of the island’s many pristine beaches. And if you have a minute, just relax by the pool…
