A Hillside Retreat
Bali is known for its beaches but if you’re more of a nature lover than a beach bum, head up into the hills in the centre of the island.
Perched majestically on the edge of the Petanu Valley overlooking a spectacular jungle ravine known as the Valley of the Kings is the Viceroy Bali. This place really has the ‘wow’ factor and is an escape from a world of current chaos. Here, time slows down, connecting you with vibrant mother nature and offering rejuvenation.
With only 30 palatial villas – all with their own pool – this really is your own private haven. But do check out the resort’s main infinity pool that looks down over the rainforest- covered valley where birds swoop in wide arcs – reminding you that you’re in the midst of nature.
Cascades restaurant has the same jaw-dropping views and offers individual romantic table settings; while the art-deco inspired Apéritif restaurant will transport you back to the Roaring Twenties with decadent cocktails and fine dining.
Immerse yourself in Balinese life with cycling tours to local villages, treks through the famous rice terraces, and really test your fitness with a hike up Mount Batur volcano at sunrise.
