The famed Island of the Gods, is an ideal destination to embark on a luxury yacht charter. The coast is rugged yet tropical, with fine sandy beaches and inlets. Lush rice fields and the volcanic backdrop offer unforgettable excursions on land…or can be quite comfortably viewed, cocktail in hand, from the decks of the ship. Bali is home to a rich visual culture, incredible monuments and 20,000 temples.
Our convenient zodiac speedboat tender means that as we cruise around the island, it’s easy to make trips to shore to explore all that is on offer on land here too. We can arrange for private tours and authentic experiences for you and your group to enjoy. All of our cruises are tailored specifically to our charter guests. Whether you want to trek a volcano, swim in the cooling pool of a waterfall, learn about the local culture, enjoy a night out at one of the beach clubs, we can make it happen in style and without fuss.
Scuba Diving & Snorkeling in Bali
There is excellent and incredibly diverse, scuba diving and snorkeling to be found all around Bali. The East Coast is home to the USAT Liberty shipwreck which is visible to snorkelers and divers. The East Coast also offers some incredible muck and critter diving. The rocky islets of Gili Tepekong and Mimpang offer stunning coral reefs for more experienced divers and the chance of a manta rays or even a mola mola in the blue (mola from July through to October).
One of our top picks of places to visit is the small fishing town of Amed, located at the Eastern tip and far from the tourist madness of Kuta and the busier areas in the south of the island. Amed also offers impressive coral reefs and unique marine life for those who are keen to scuba dive or snorkel. You can be engulfed in the stunning ocean views that Bali has to offer while relaxing on board El Aleph. This is a private yacht charter at its best.
The waters of West Bali offer shallow coral gardens and are free of strong oceanic currents. West Bali snorkeling, diving, and swimming is easygoing, safe and a wonderland of marine life. It is easily accessible from Benoa and Serangan, the main ports in the south. This region is also home to the Bali Barat Nature Reserve where you can enjoy spectacular scenery and soak up Balinese life at a more relaxed pace.
Culture and Spirituality in Bali
For those who want to experience the rich culture and spirituality for which the Island of the God’s is so well known, we recommend visiting Ubud, located in the centre of Bali. Ubud is a melting pot of arts and culture. From the artisan silversmiths and wood carvers of the nearby villages of Mas and Celuk, to world-famous yoga studios and renowned local spiritual healers. Ubud is a place to engage in zen and open your mind.
Spas and Wellness
Whether you want to indulge in a relaxing massage or pamper yourself with a facial, manicure and pedicure, or opt to unwind with a full-day package, there is no shortage of exclusive 5-star spas on the island.
Dining & Nights Out
Night’s out in Bali range from live music events, comedy, fine dining prepared by Michelin starred chefs from around the world, to world-class DJs playing until the early hours at some of the most exclusive beach clubs on the island. If you would like for us to make reservations for restaurants, clubs, or other events in advance we can make arrangements for you.
