Took a break from planning but am read TA everyday for ideas. Quick background...Husband and I age 60, plus 3 sons ages 27, 25 and 23, plus 2 girlfriends are going to Bali from Jan 5 to Jan 18. So far this is what our itinerary looks like.
1/6 Kuta - Tanah Lot, relax from jet lag, pool/beach, massage, shop
1/7 Kuta - Driver to take us to Uluwatu for the day. Beaches and surfing hopefully for the boys, temple and Kecak dance in the evening.
1/8 Kuta - White Water Rafting or Hidden Canyon morning, relax afternoon
1/10 Ubud - Easy day to relax, everyone on their own.
Monkey Forest, spa, Campuhun Ridge, pool. Girlfriend want to visit Villa Kitty.
1/11 Ubud - Mt Batur hike weather permitting otherwise White Water Rafting or Hidden Canyon, which ever one we did not do from Kuta. Relax late afternoon.
1/13 Nusa Lembongan (Tarci’s Bungalows)- transfer via fast boat with Ubud pick up at hotel. Arrive, check in, pool and/or bicycle riding around town, relax.
1/15 NL - Snorkel trip and/or surf, relax pool/beach
1/16 NL - Snorkel trip and/or surf, relax pool/beach
1/17 Sanur (Warasana Inn) - First fast boat transfer to Sanur. Check in, walk along beach path and kids to finish up shopping massage etc. Last night with kids. Nice dinner.
1/18 Kids flight home at 16:20
Then 2 weeks with hubby to further explore Bali with no itinerary planned.
How does this itinerary look? Any suggestions? Can day 1/9 transfer be done or should it be done switched with day 1/10 and start in Ubud? Can day 12 be done or do I need to remove something? I have hired a 13 passenger van on the long travel days. I think I have built in some flexibility and we can switch out excursions on different days if weather is an issue. This will probably be our one and only visit to Bali.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this long post.
