VILLA ROSITA BALI
Of course the main thing to do at Villa Rosita, is just to sit back, enjoy the ocean views, relax in the jacuzzi, let off some steam in the gym, and then enjoy a wonderful home-cooked meal from our in-villa chef,
Villa Rosita however is ideally situated to go out and explore Bali, being just 30 minutes from the cultural centre of Ubud, 20 minutes away from the bars, cafes and restaurants of Sanur, and 30 minutes away from the diving and snorkeling of East Bali around Candidasa and Padang Bai.
Bali Safari & Marine Park
Our kids love the safari and the different animal shows and feedings – with the personal favourite being feeding the baby mongoose (book in advance!). We normally take a look around the aquarium and also catch the show, which gives a nice hour in air-conditioning as well as the impressive site of elephants, ducks, boats and much more all appearing on stage.
Finally if you have time (we rarely have) then the water park is very good (only Waterbom is better in our view) and there is also fun-fair with various rides (we rarely if ever make that one!)
All in all there is something for all the family to enjoy, and having lunch while lions are just a few inches from your nose on the other side of the glass is also pretty awesome.
Keramas is a world class surfing beach which each year stages one of the World Surfing League Championship events involving the top professional surfers in the world – so if you are staying in April/May/June it is worth checking to see if it is going on.
Otherwise Keramas is just a great place for surfers generally.
There is a small river to cross if you do walk along the beach – usually it is no issue at all, but in wet season, children may have to be helped.
