Traveling has a profound way of infusing our lives with new perspectives. Visiting new places, experiencing new cultures, and immersing in new environments has a way of stimulating our lives and providing a new sense of gratification. If you haven’t been to Bali, get ready to dive into its mystical culture and landscape, while also indulging your weary senses from the comfort of the tropical boutique villas on the island.

If this is your first time visiting Bali, you may be wondering where to start with your itinerary and travel plans for when you arrive. Don’t worry, we’ve got those points covered in this article.

Best times to visit Bali

Bali is the quintessential tropical island destination. This means the island naturally exhibits two main seasons: the dry season and the wet season; both of which come with their own pros and cons.

The dry season is when the weather is at its best, consistently sunny skies, with little chance of precipitation. This is also the high season, where most people visit Bali. Places can get crowded, and traffic is a bit congested in certain areas. However, this is the best time to visit to truly experience Bali’s tropical ambiance especially if your agenda involves being out in the sun. Keep in mind that during the high season, accommodation and transportation costs will likely hover just above the average price.

Conversely, the wet season, which is also the low season, is when Bali experiences most of its precipitation. Weather conditions can be a bit unpredictable, though it is still possible to explore the island. You just have to be more prepared for a bit of scattered showers. Advantages of visiting during the wet season include fewer crowds, and less traffic congestion; allowing you to have more flexibility to get to and from places you want to visit on the island. Additionally, accommodation and transportation prices are usually lower as well during the low season.

Dining in Seminyak

Supplement your visit to Bali with a culinary experience in Seminyak. If you’re looking for an exquisite place to dine, well you’re in luck, as Seminyak is one of the epicenters for the finest dining venues in Bali.

The Bamboo Restaurant at The Amala Resort offers a healthy all-day dining option with their wide array of organic, and locally sourced menu selections. Options range from Western cuisines to Asian fusion dishes, and local Balinese specialities; all of which are prepared with their health-conscious philosophy for a guilt-free dining experience.

If you fancy a more private dining experience,, consider dining from the comfort of your villa at The Amala Estate. Our artisan chefs are more than capable of conjuring up the most exquisite dining menus upon your request. We can even tailor the ingredients to suit your dietary plans and/allergies that you may have.

Staying in Seminyak at The Amala Estate
