|There are those who say that Bali has become spoiled. There are those who say that Bali is now too touristy and that it was at its best in the seventies or eighties.
Those people have never visited West Bali. Rice terraces are the trade mark of the Balinese landscape and the most beautiful are in West Bali. And nestled in a beautiful forest on the edge of the Bali Barat National Park is a unique jewel, a sanctuary in the heart of the most spectacular landscape of rich green rice terraces:
TAMAN WANA VILLAS & SPA
The Taman Wana experience begins at its “Greeting Post” before boarding a traditional Balinese jukung raft for a 10-minute lake passage to the floating Bale Bali gazebo and from there to a choice of accommodation which ranges from a luxurious, three-bedroom Palasari Suite with its own private pool overlooking the mountains, a beautiful lake and the rainforest to a luxury Blue Lagoon Room overlooking a lake and the rainforest while most Terrace Rooms offer spectacular views across acres of Balinese rice terraces, the forest and distant sea views.
The Taman Wana retreat offers a host of activities which can either contrast or complement the relaxing, tranquil style of the location. Relax by the stylish infinity pool, revel in the extensive range of spa treatments or practice yoga in a forest setting. For the more energetic, try a canoe or kayak ride on the tranquil lake with scenery that reminds you as much of Switzerland as it does of Bali or better yet, go for either a 45 minute or 3 hour trek amongst the most beautiful scenery that is the very essence of West Bali. Finally, for the water enthusiast, a forty-minute car and boat ride will take you to the best scuba and snorkelling area off the island of Bali.
The culinary aspect of Taman Wana has not been ignored as you will be treated to a feast of delectable, 5 star cuisine in the magnificent circular Alang Alang restaurant which is the largest in Bali.
Taman Wana recognises the natural balance of its environment and, according to its owner, “is an important philosophy incorporated into everything we do, bringing the positive aspects of tourism's effects back to the natural environment that has given us so much.
“Our dedication to setting the stage for a new type of tourism in Indonesia is an important example for local people who will benefit from a new understanding of the value of protecting our environment,” he said. “The guests of Taman Wana help to preserve the true magic of natural Bali.”
