Om Swastiastu...

Summer time has passed but it doesnt mean that Bali is short on fun activities to do. In

and soul but also makes you one with nature.
For a start, you can have some me time at The Beach Spa at Belmond Jimbaran Puri
to have an Ayurveda treatment that will relax your muscles and mind after a long week at
work. Find out more about it in our INVITE & INDULGE. Then, go to Ubud and indulge
in a healthy yet delicious meal with a view of greenery at Moksa Plant-Based Restaurant &
COVER Permaculture Garden read in DINE & DELIGHTS to reveal their food story.

Once you have reenergized yourself with a spa treatment and healthy delights, it
is time to be one with nature. A visit to the Kul Kul Farm will give you more insights
on organic produce we share our adventure at the farm in LIFESTYLE & LEISURE.
Meanwhile, a stay experience at Plataran Menjangan Resort & Spa will also get you
closer to Mother Earth as it is nestled within the West Bali National Park where wild
deer often graze in their green spaces. Other adventures await you at the resort which
you will discover in our REST & RELAXATION.
From outside Bali, our contributor Marge shares her experience staying at
Earthship, a self-sufcient, sustainable building in West Sumbawa, while Edna Tarigan

else left than to hit the ignition button and the gas pedal.
Surprisingly, the buggies are not blaring as loud as I
thought they would be. The sound of the engine was
more of a medium roar, resembling a prowling predator.
The petrol-fueled engine gave a good thrust as soon
as I hit the gas pedal on full throttle. The ride was super
fun as I went through the dense tropical forest, waved to
the local villagers, and saw an old man feeding his cows
while roosters were roaming around the road. But the
most fun was when I spin the wheel and drifted on soft
gravel, blasting dirt to the buggy behind me.
