The Temples of Bali

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

On our fabulous 10-day vacation to the Indonesian island of Bali, we will have the honor and the privilege of being able to experience the stunning temples located there.  Also known as the Land of the Gods, there is nowhere better to transcend on a spiritual journey of self-discovery.

Pura Taman Ayun

Pura (meaning temple) Taman Ayun is among one of the most famous and picturesque temples in all of Indonesia.  The temple does not stand alone, and features a lush and impressive garden.  It is located in the Mengwi district of Bali and is one of our first stops on our trip.

Tanah Lot

The Tanah Lot is a temple located right next to our first hotel, the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort.  A sacred rock formation, Tanah Lot is not only a popular tourist spot and cultural icon, but a place of pilgrimage, and a lovely way to see the sunrise right above the Indian Ocean.

Pura Ulun Danu Bratan

This temple, also known as the “floating temple” is located on Lake Bratan.  It is a Hindu temple surrounded by the mighty mountains near Bedugul and it was established in 1633 in honor of the Balinese lake and river goddess Dewi Danu.  Lake Bratan was and is a main source of irrigation in central Bali, and to experience a temple of such importance and grandeur is truly inspiring.

Uluwatu Temple

The Uluwatu Temple, also known as the Pura Luhur Uluwatu, is the final temple on our spiritual journey.  This temple is located in the Kuta South district of Uluwatu and is one of the Sad Kahyangan.  The Sad Kahyangan are the six holiest places of worship in all of Bali, so this is a temple that you really don’t want to miss.  It is dedicated to the supreme god of Indonesian Hinduism known in Balinese as Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa and many other countries as simply Acintya.

The opportunity not only to see all of these temples, but to be so constantly surrounded by them and be able to feel their presence in the communities around them is a once in a lifetime experience.  To be in touch with such profound spirituality is a unique treasure that is limited to only certain places in the world, and Bali just happens to be one of them.

Beautiful Bali

Looking for an exciting fall excursion with a group of fun and adventurous women? At Women Traveling The World, we can take you to parts of the world that you’d never dream of going to, at a price you’d never dream of getting away with. In October, come away with us to the stunning coasts of Bali, Indonesia.

Housing Accommodations

Our housing accommodations for this trip are, in and of themselves, a once in a lifetime experience. For our first two nights in Bali, we’ll be staying at the gorgeous Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort. This resort is not only nestled in Bali’s southwest coast, but it’s area is so large that there are 13 temples located on its grounds. Next up, we have the Puri Lumbung cottages. This is a real treat, as you will be able to stay on your own cottage, located on stilts just above the water’s edge. This little getaway bungalow on the sea is nothing short of paradise. Once we depart for Ubud, we will come to the Tjampuhan hotel, which we can feel lucky to call home for four nights. When we’re not going on our elephant excursions and exploring the local crafts markets, you can feel free to relax to your heart’s content at the hotel’s incredibly relaxing stream-side spa, or clear blue pool.


All costs for excursions, cultural events, and entrance fees to sights and museums are all covered under the trip fee, and you will be amazed at how much you get for so little. Throughout our journey, we will get to enjoy a wide variety of wild life. Snorkeling off the coast of Menjangan Island, riding elephants in Ubud, and feeding monkeys in the Belimbing village will allow you to get up close and personal with the thousands of species of animals that call Bali home. You’ll also get to experience the more spiritual side of Bali as we explore the island’s virtually ancient wonders of the world: their temples. In addition to their breathtaking temples, you will have the opportunity to meet with an authentic Balinese healer, an experience you’ll surely never have the opportunity to have again.

For the single woman traveler, it can be unappealing to imagine experiencing so many exciting new things alone. That’s why so many women have begun traveling with women just like them, who want the most out of life and who want to experience the trip of a lifetime.
