Bali is always a good idea.
Any excuse I get to fly over to that little slice of Paradise, I take!
So, when I heard I was heading to Thailand, I figured why not throw a few days in Bali in to the mix too. After all, four days in beautiful Ubud sounds like the perfect escape.
Ubud is pure magic. It is a sanctuary for yoga, health and wellness. It is an inland tropical jungle, covered in a sheet of lush greenery. The energy is infectious, formal time barely exists and the culture is nothing short of wonderful! People are happy, birds chirp freely and colours seem just a little more vibrant.
We stayed at the Four Seasons Sayan. A five star jungle and riverside retreat. A private villa, flower baths, anti-gravity yoga, poolside breakfasts, quick day trips to the city of Ubud, daily meditations and spa treatments, chakra healing ceremonies and an abundance of positive energy surrounding us.
Without a doubt one of the best four days of my life!
If you ever go, you HAVE to try Mangosteen! It is one of my favourite fruits! (And I have only ever found it in tropical Islands like Bali)
I would also recommend also exploring Ubud by foot to absorb as much of the natural beauty and sounds, sights and smells as possible!.There are some funky markets, cute little shops and rice paddy fields so beautiful it will take your breath away.
Also, if you want to try suss out a few healthy eateries in Ubud, some great cafes are:
The Elephant Café
Yoga Barn and Café
Sakti Dining Room
