Your guide and driver will pick you up at your South Bali hotel around 5pm. Drive to Tanah Lot in Tabanan Regency, located about 12 miles (20 km) from Denpasar. Pura Tanah Lot, a seaside temple, sits on a large offshore rock, which has been shaped by the ocean over many years. This picturesque temple—perhaps the most photographed cultural icon in Bali—is one of seven located around the Balinese coast.
Arrive at the 16th-century temple around sunset. Subject to the tide, walk across the ocean floor to the base of the temple to view it from outside. (Note: The temple is only open to practicing Balinese Hindus.) You’ll have plenty of breathtaking photo ops before returning across the sand with your guide.
Continue to Canggu Beach, where you’ll receive a traditional blessing before entering Hotel Tugu Bali. Sit down for a Tugudom dinner in the majestic restaurant, decorated in exotic leaves and frangipanis. This stunning venue reflects the art, history and culture of Indonesia and features an extensive collection of fine antiques.
A traditional rijsttafel (rice table) offers an elaborate meal. Enjoy a lavish selection of imperial dishes from the Majapahit Kingdom (1293-1500), as well as cuisine from the coastal and hinterland villages of the region. Admire illustrations of the royal parades of the King of Majapahit and his entourage in the Bale Sutra—a 300-year-old temple transported from Java and reconstructed in the dining room.
After your delectable dinner, your guide will transport you back to your hotel around 9pm.
