Then don’t do it alone!
Instead, join 8-10 mature solo female travellers and me as we soak up all the beauty and the culture that Bali & the Gili Islands offer…
I am hosting a tour of Bali and the Gili Islands for 8-10 Travel Soul Sisters who love being near the sea. We will spend our time exploring Ubud, Gili Trawangan, Seminyak, and Sanur. No pressure, but you have the choice to be active (or not) and try out any of the many water activities available. Enjoy a massage, take a yoga class, do some sightseeing, shop at local markets, or just chill out on the beach (or at our villas poolside) on a deckchair with a cocktail, an ice-cold Bintang, or a fresh fruit smoothie.
We will spend the first four nights exploring the wonders of Ubud – Bali’s spiritual center – with its temples, yoga studios, markets, rain forests, holistic healing centers, workshops & classes, not to mention its world-class restaurants. You can take a morning yoga class, visit the rice paddies and waterfalls in the lush greenery of the jungle surrounds, and watch the monkeys playing at Monkey Forest before indulging yourself at one of the many local spas.
Next up, four nights in our stunning accommodation on Gili Trawangan, an island paradise with postcard-perfect white sand beaches and palm trees, famous for world-class diving and snorkeling. Go snorkeling at the underwater statues off the island of Gili Meno and watch sea turtles swim at Turtle Bay. There are no cars or scooters on these islands, so you get about on foot, by bicycle, or by horse and carriage. Gili Trawangan boasts some of the best sunsets in the world so enjoying cocktails on the aptly named Sunset Beach is a must.
From there we head to the beach resort area of Seminyak for three relaxing nights. Seminyak is well known for its high-end shopping, beach bars, and restaurants. Watch the surfers in action (or take a class yourself) from one of the many beach clubs. Ride a horse along the beach and take in the sunset over the Indian Ocean.
Our final adventure is 3 nights in Sanur, an idyllic beach where you wake up to the sunrise and try an early morning SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) or Yoga SUP class in the still waters or cycle around the paved beachfront. Enjoy another massage, this time on the beach, and relax with our Travel Soul Sisters over happy hour cocktails at the beach club. Head off to a workshop or take a day trip to the Instagram-worthy Nusa Penida, before visiting the night market with its locally made souvenirs. Finish your day with dinner at one of the many beachfront restaurants.
