The Indonesian island of Bali is often referred to as the ‘Island of the Gods’ and the reason is apparent the minute one sees the place. The island is filled with lush forests, undulating hills, and gorgeous beaches. In addition to all the natural beauty, the island has many historical and cultural attractions that most travellers would find interesting. Most people come to Bali with the sole intention of relaxing and having a good time, and there are few better ways of doing that than by spending a few hours lounging in a hot water spring.
The Banjar Hot Spring is probably the most popular hot spring in Bali. Referred to as ‘air panas’ by the locals the area around the hot spring was developed by the Japanese several centuries ago. It is located about two kilometres from Banjar Village in North Bali. The well is open daily from 7 am to 6 pm. Soaking in the warm waters of the hot spring is a terrific way to unwind and all visitors to the island should consider visiting the place.
Being a top tourist destination, visitors can expect to enjoy the very best of everything in Bali. Although it may be found lacking in certain areas, the local infrastructure is very good. The local public transport system has not yet managed to catch up with the intense pace of development, so tourists may not always be able to find a bus when needed. However, there are plenty of acceptable alternatives including taxis. Travellers with a motorcycle license should consider renting one out as it is a highly convenient means of transport and can be especially useful when it comes to avoiding traffic.
Restaurants and eateries can be found in abundance. Not only is there a great variety of local establishments, but those feeling a little homesick can also find many well-known international franchises here as well. The little island also contains numerous pubs, bars and nightclubs, where one can go to drink, dance and make new friends. Accommodation is also plentiful and easy to find.
Bali resorts, such as Anantara Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, provide excellent rooms, friendly service and a plethora of facilities meant to make guests feel at home. It is considered one of the finest Uluwatu hotels around and is a great place to stay at.
