Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

In this unusual place of worship, mischievous simians throng among sacred temples and lush greenery.

Reviewed By Mike M - London, United Kingdom

Well worth a visit, this large area of Jungle to the north of town is like a zoo, but run by the monkeys!
The forest and temple complex is awesome. From the ancient stone Bridges and stairs to the gigantic trees overhanging the river. You can see why the monkeys love it.
Although we didn't see anyone have significant trouble from the monkeys, the reports of bites and scratches are widespread. They do squabble and quarrel between themselves which would be intimidating if you have small children in your group.
One of the highlights of Ubud and should definitely not be missed.

The whole trip was fun and relaxed. Started by well organised comfortable pick up from the hotel. We were then escorted to a coffee plantation where we had a very informative talk and tastings. The views were amazing.
Next on to breakfast at a hill side resistant with good loos! And amazing views for breakfast.
Then the cycle back...the bikes were a little tired ,but did the job. The route down went through jungles,side roads and rice fields .you saw many aspects of the Bali lifestyle.
The village we road through we stopped and the guide explained the temples and lifestyle. You could ask questions too.
Finally back to a small family enclave for a delicious home cooked lunch. And some wonderful hand painted drawings. Then home to our hotel at about 2 30pm .
The tour was well organised,support vehicle and machanic on hand. Best feature small group of 6 max.
Ideal for any age or ability. The reason only a 4/5 was the bikes were rather tied . Recommend you take cycle gloves if you pre-book the tour ,you do need to use the breaks! I did not and it did not matter but if you have them bring them .also long sleeves and trousers to protect from sun and nippy things. I would not have missed this tour. It was fun ,informative,safe and friendly. Great value for money too

We arrived at Sangeh Monkey Forest at the end of a wonderful cycle ride around the area. The area looked strangely familiar and I realised that we had visited here some 25 years previously!
The monkeys were calm and not at all aggressive and it was a surprisingly nice experience to have one sit on my lap.

And unjustifiably so....
The home of 1000 masks and 4000 puppets of different origins that are perfectly kept is astounding and well worth a visit. The Gardens surrounding the Houses are a treat to the eyes.
I urge you to make the detour for a visit when in Bali.

Kuluk Gallery

Reviewed By robertwalke - Bali, Indonesia

Well I have bought lots and lots from this place and also recommended it on here and to people I have met in Ubud So it was with tremendous sadness and disappointment ( and a little anger ) that I found when I wanted to buy again they seemed not to care at all about past business from me and did not even consider a thank you in the way of a price reduction at all ! I will not be recommending them any more such a pity they have no wish to look after loyal custom ! Says a lot about them I think

This was an exciting experience for us! We rode the elephant around the park. There is an opportunity to get pictures and they take a lot. Our guide pointed out some beautiful birds and plants along the way too. You can buy a food basket and feed the elephants too! They even had baby elephants that you could feed! Lunch was included and it was very good. The chocolate factory has great chocolate but because of the heat, we couldn’t buy any or it would have melted.

This was more than just a cycling tour, but a wonderful experience with local guide Mus who not only takes you on out of the way farm/jungle/rice field cycling treks, but also welcomes you into his family home and gives fantastic insight into local culture. The tour ends with a delicious Balinese home cooked meal. I would highly recommend this tour for the real Bali experience with a genuinely lovely local guide. I’m not an experienced cyclist however I found this easy as it was mostly downhill.

Sinar has multiple certificates and numerous awards recognizing her abilities in a wide variety of massage and spa treatments including body massage, body treatment, wellness therapies, chakra healing, facial and hair treatments.

Reviewed By courts48 - Brisbane, Australia

Being a regular visitor to Bali I have had many massages but Sinar is by far the best I have experienced. She is so humble and caring and a delight to deal with. I visited on the recommendation of Cloud Nine Estate where we were staying as I had injured my knee due to too much walking. Sinar recommended the treatment and worked on my leg most days......whilst still not healed she had me walking again within a day. I also had a body scrub and my skin still feels like velvet a week later.....all natural. This is a true Bali experience and nothing like the hundred of cheap and expensive massages you get in so many other places in Bali. If you want the true Bali experience I highly recommend. Also Sinar has many years experience and has worked at many Four Season resorts around the world. I can't wait to return.
