The refreshing boat tour and rafting through the dense rainforest over Ayung river gave a perfect view of the island's mountaineous regions. A hearty meal, included in the river rafting package (besides pick and drop to the hotel) truly did the trick for me as the second half of the day went in last minute shopping and the much needed Balinese massage, a rejuvenating experience (especially since it was my first massage ever). On my way back to the hotel at night, i stopped by a live music cafe - Laughing Buddha, where I got my hands on the famous Rose wine which invigorated my taste buds and senses. It's a Bali must-have.This trip taught me many things, but one in particular- We all live in our version of a comfort zone. It could be our fear of being alone in public, or simply the fear of the unknown, but the magic only happens when you step out of your comfort zone. I'm really glad that I took this trip as it taught me that the key to our happiness lies with us. Thanks to Bali, I learnt the true meaning of wanderlust.Follow me in my adventures on my blog, click hereFollow me on instagram at suhanihopesFollow me on Twitter at suhanihopesAwesome seafood and great views
That pavilion was the hotel's open-air lobby, and the powerful sound of water was the sacred Ayung River. I checked in and continued down the path, surrounded by whispering bamboo, moon-lit koi ponds, and fragrant frangipani blossoms. The villa was a reflection of Johann Wyss' novel, Swiss Family Robinson; it was a fantasy bamboo structure with a conical roof that rose some 15 feet! It featured a circular floor plan designed in respect to the golden ratio Phi, at its centre a king size bed draped in white netting laid low to the rich cocoa coloured floor. I would quickly learn this netting was both atheistically pleasing, and functional! Like the remaining eight villas, mine faced the sacred Ayung River, the darkness of night hid it from my eyes, but its song was ever present. After collecting myself, I went to take a bath, but had a hard time choosing over my options. Each villa features an open-air soaking tub carved out of a river stone, these al fresco bathhouses include chromotherapy lighting fashioned after the seven chakras. The villas also include separate outdoor rain shower areas that let you gaze towards the skies while remaining in complete privacy.
One of the rafting places in Bali is Ayung River.

It takes about two hours to explore it.In addition to that, you can also see panoramas of towering palm trees, hill trees and the yellow rice fields on the left and right side of Ayung River.
