At Chandra, our service extends beyond providing accommodation. Our team will be happy to plan out a day visit for you and your family. We can design an exciting itinerary where you can visit temples, other local cultural sites, adventure parks, beaches, enjoy the local cuisine and much more. Here are some temples we suggest you visit:
One of the most picturesque temples in Bali, Tanah Lot is a famous Instagram hotspot. Built on a rock island, the crashing waves lap the 16th century-old structure. The entrance to this temple is through a courtyard flanked by intricately carved sculptures that look out to blue skies and the ocean in the distance. A walk across the beach and shallow water will bring you to the stone structure. After your visit out in the ocean, take a stroll around the nearby serene village. Take in the culture and enjoy the local cuisine. Located almost an hour away from your private pool villa at Chandra, a trip here is definitely worth the time and the sweeping ocean views will take your breath away.
Soak in majestic ocean views from the edge of a 70-metre cliff. Visit Uluwatu temple for its stunning architecture nestled amidst a flourishing forest. Perched on a cliff, views of the turquoise ocean dotted with sea vessels are enthralling. Take some time out when you visit the temple. The walk around the circumference of the ancient temple will leave you awestruck. The open spaces, outstanding architecture, mesmerising views complete with Balinese ceremonies taking place cordoned off from everything else is worth the trip down here.
Some of the best beach clubs are situated in this area of the Bukit Peninsula. Relax and spend the rest of the day at Sundays Beach Club. Uluwatu is also famous for surfing. So, don’t forget the surfboard or rent one on your way to the waves.
The entrance of Lempuyang temple opens to a panoramic view of the clouds surrounding the sacred volcano Mount Agung in the distance. It is aptly known as the ‘Gates of Heaven’. Located on the slopes of Mount Lempuyang, 1,175 meters above sea level, this collection of 7 temples is best visited during sunrise or sunset. A tour of all the stunning temples takes up to 4 hours.
At Chandra, we make sure our guests feel at home instantly. Let us know what type of adventure you like, and we’ll plan it out for you. If you don’t feel like venturing out, stay back in your private villa, and we can arrange pool floaties, massages and candlelit dinners for you – complete with a personal chef. Book your 2 or 3 bedroom villa and enjoy Bali, Chandra-style.
