Ubud – Arrive in Majestic Bali and Enjoy a Sunset Tour of Uluwatu
Bali is a tropical island paradise that brims with lush rainforest, panoramic volcanoes, colorful flora, and white sand beaches. As your flight descends into Ngurah Rai International Airport, you will look out of your window to find the shimmering azure waters of the Indian Ocean splashing against the shoreline. Your private transfer will meet you upon arrival and escort you to a lavish resort-style accommodation overlooking the rice fields outside of Ubud. The town is considered the cultural capital of the island with streets radiating outward from the 19th-century Royal Palace. After settling into the comforts of your hotel, your guide will meet you in the lobby and escort you to the edges of the island’s southern peninsula. The limestone cliffs reach a height of 230 feet above the fringing white sand beach.
The temple that adorns the plateau was erected in the 11th century and is considered one of the island’s spiritual pillars, protecting the culture and the people of Bali from evil demons. As the sun drifts beyond the horizon, a drumbeat accompanies the sound of waves that crash against the cliff-base. Performers hum and move to the Kecak Fire Dance, a dramatic and enchanting interpretation of the Ramayana epic. The sounds will enrapture you as the orange hues of the sky fade. The fire glows at the center of the circle as the dancers tell the story of the divine prince Rama in his tribulations of saving his wife from the demon king.
