Bali is a bountiful tropical island and its landscapes encompass lush greenery that are a treat to sink into and photograph for posterity. One of the best places to encounter Balinese nature that has been a tad tamed is at the Eka Karya Botanic Garden, which is a verdant haven for nature lovers or those who simply enjoy leisurely strolls in well-manicured gardens. You will also want to secure a stay at some of the fine Bali resorts in the area, such as the Anantara Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa. Set within a scenic Balinese landscape, this fine option of the stellar Uluwatu hotels in the area is the perfect place to host a spa holiday where you can wile your cares away. Remember to visit the Eka Karya Botanic Garden during your time on the island, as it is a verdant wonderland spanning almost 400 acres. When you tread the well-maintained paths, you’ll discover a series of gall houses containing, amongst others, a vibrant array of orchids in one, a specialised selection of unique medicinal plants and a unique cactus collection in others as well. You will also come across an attractive water feature and the views over the lake are simply divine. Lest you be surprised, the gardens are also host to a curious family of monkeys, but generally leave visitors alone. THE Botanic garden is perfect for some welcome communing with nature, so grab your camera and head over there the next time your travels bring you to Bali.
