Travelling to Bali, Indonesia as a Nigerian passport-holder requires a fair bit of preparation, as the Embassy of Indonesia in Abuja is not nearly as welcoming as they appear to be on their website. The visa requirements are designed in such a way that makes it nearly impossible for tourists to attain without the right assistance; that’s where Suffy Travels comes in! You can contact us for the boring details.
Arriving at Bali, we were met by the aircraft and given VIP assistance at immigration and baggage claim, after which we were led by our very friendly holiday guide and personal chauffeur at the arrival terminal.
We stayed at the opulent Kunja Villas and Spa in the heart of Seminyak. It was our home away from home as we had a grand living area, a private pool, a fully equipped kitchen and the pleasure of having a private chef cook our breakfast every morning.
We will always have a never-ending love affair with The Island of Bali, as she welcomed us with open arms for an unforgettable experience; it is a haven of natural beauty and vibrant heritage from its breath-taking landscapes, pristine waterfalls and picturesque beaches to its grand temples and of course mouth-watering cuisine.
Favourite Places to Eat:
There’s a lot more to the Bali dining scene than nasi goreng (Indonesian stir – fried rice) and babi guling (suckling pig). The ever-changing Island is full of surprises, buzzing with award winning chefs, energetic venues, reservation waitlists and a culinary journey of texture, contrasts and flavour.
Must Do’s in Bali:
Beach Clubs in Uluwatu & Waterfalls in Ubud
Bali is blessed with some of the most picturesque beaches in the world but Uluwatu has the most pristine waters and the most luxurious beach clubs. Our jaws dropped at the amazing views of Karma Beach Club as we descended in the cable car down the cliffs and we had the exact same reaction at Sundays Beach Club.
The Island of Bali is home to a plethora of sensational waterfalls that pictures will NEVER do justice and the mystic hidden gem that is Tibumana Waterfall in Bangli, Ubud is our absolute favourite.
To feel the deepest level of serenity, stand at the base of the waterfall with your eyes shut and feel the water gush against your skin. Arrive early in the morning to have the waterfall all to yourself.
Tegallalang Rice Terrace
Visit the mind – blowing rice terrace of Tegallalang, Ubud to revel in the most breathtakingly stunning views of natural scenery and landscaping.
Water Rafting in the Ayung River
The Ayung River, Ubud is the longest and most alluring river in Bali and one of the best ways to experience it is by an electrifying water rafting adventure. Explore striking waterfalls, high cliffs and beautiful gorges while paddling your way between rocks and getting drenched by crashing waves.
Top 3 Travel Essentials:
Sun Cream: During dry season, Bali has very strong UV rays. Ensure your skin stays healthy by protecting it with sun cream.
Digital Camera: There is so much jaw dropping beauty on the Island of Bali, which we feel needs to be captured in high quality images.
Comfortable Shoes: You’ll need a pair for trekking through rice terraces and hiking up cliffs to get to waterfalls.
