‘ Om Swastiastu...’
Despite so many new and upcoming places that attract tourists to the island, the old brands, buildings and destinations are still doing their best to keep up with the current trends. They may have undergone renovation, revitalization or expansion, but they are not left behind as they are very well preserved. In fact, many of them are still high on the list of Bali’s places to visit and hard to beat by the new ones.
It has been more than 20 years since the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay first established itself as one of the first luxurious villa resorts in the world, yet still gives surprises. Earlier this year the resort launched newly revamped villas that blend Balinese architecture with a modern touch – find out more about this gem in ‘Rest & Relaxation’. Meanwhile, Waterbom Bali may have been opened for 15 years already, but their new extreme slides show that age is just a number. Join our adventure experience the four new slides in ‘Action & Attraction,’ and get ready to have a most fun day at the water park!
Our team also took a trip to Singaraja to discover the story of the town as well as its historical buildings – read ‘Lifestyle & Leisure’ to find out about our adventure. From outside of Bali our contributor Edna Tarigan discovers the tea tradition in Jakarta that has its roots going back centuries ago, which she shares in ‘Capital Corner’, while Fadil Aziz in ‘Beyond Bali’ takes us on a hunt for Art Deco buildings in Bandung.
These destinations are rich with history and they prove that preservation is one of the main keys that make Indonesia, particularly Bali, charming in everyone’s eyes. Let’s cherish them together.
