We visited Ulun Danu on the way to Lovina.It was deserved when the weather came to be good. The boat trip is recommended.

Scenic and Mysterious
Dec. 2020 • Couples
We visited this Beratan Lake (some call it Bedugul Lake because it is located in Bedugul) in late Dec-2020 during Covid pandemic. It took 1,5 hours drive from Seminyak area to Bedugul. The temple is situated on the banks of the lake. A very nice and scenic temple, it is pictured on the IDR50.000 bill. The lake is so calm, and the temperature is cool. The temple is said to be Hindu temple, but there are also Buddha stupas, indicating the harmony between the religions in the past. Visitors can rent boat or speedboat to go around the lake. Entrance fee is Rp.30.000/person, but they also offer a package which includes drink and meals in the restaurant inside the park.

I Think I Lake You...
Nov. 2019
After a long and winding drive into the depths of Bali's hillsides, our Temple Tour with Discova took us to the one and only Ulun Danu Bratan Temple. Famed for its location on top of a lake, this temple is a hotbed of tourist activity and when the site is as gorgeous as this is, you can hardly be surprised.

This temple has one of the rare benefits of having both distinct Hindu and Buddhist influences on its architecture, with the plurality of belief showing the unique cultural blend that makes Bali so special. There is also a gorgeous mural that shows the history of how the lake has affected the communities around it, which further adds to the local flavour of the temple.

When we visited Ulun Danu, there had been no rainfall in Bali for next to six months, and as a result the lake itself was sitting quite low. This meant that we didn't get to experience the temple at its most picturesque, and yet still the majesty of the temple impressed us.

This all being said, the volume of tourists was so high that it was very difficult to truly enjoy the setting and stories behind the temple at Ulun Danu. I did say that this temple was a hotbed of tourist activity, and while some may enjoy that, I feel that it detracts from the purpose of visiting a temple.

Wonderful
Oct. 2019
To me perhaps the most beautiful of the Balinese temples. Located along the ancient, volcanic Bratan lake and surrounded by wonderful flower gardens, this is a place to unwind yourself and surrender to the divine. Spend a few hours here during your north Bali trip

Also has number of souvenir shops and restaurants near the premises

Beautiful floating temple
Aug. 2019
The appeal of this temple is it's stunning location, the lake surrounded by mountains, it's all very magical. The gardens next to the temple are beautiful and within the complex there are a restaurant, toilets, play parks and even a hut with a display of animals so there is plenty of occupy your time. The inner sanctums of the temples are not accessible if you're not a worshipper but much of the complex can be viewed from the gates.

One best place In Bali
Jul. 2019
amazing but read carefully the rules, we understand that when they jump, you just stay still but that's only when you don't have anything they want... if that's the case just walk away slowly. The monkeys opened our bag and stole many things

Great architecture and stunning environment and views
Jan. 2020
Ulun Danu temple was a little far towards the north. It took us almost 2 hours to reach from our hotel. I found this to be better than the Tirta Empul as its surrounded by a lot of greenery and is on a lakeside. You’ll have to buy tickets here again, its 50000 IDR per person if i’m not wrong. The temple is well maintained and has a lot of ancient architecture.

Apart from the temple, the premises are filled with colorful flower plants, they have a small restaurant with lunch buffets available. On your way out you’ll find a lot of shops selling handicrafts, you’ll need some bargaining skills here.
