Places to relax & eat healthy

I'm planning a trip to Indonesia to visit a co-worker in Jakarta. I'd also like to go/fly somewhere near for a week or two to relax, eat healthy and visit spas. I think Bali is a safe choice, but there should be more/other/less touristy places. Any advise?

Also: i need WIFI for work purposes

    Hoi Jelmer,

    We just went to Bali, you're right, it's quite busy with tourists. Therefore we went to Lembongan Island , a really beautiful island where you can hike or rent a scooter. Many guesthouses on the beach, but if you get a few minutes away from that you will feel like you discovered paradise! Visit the mangrove forest on the east part. There are a dozen or so Spa's, budget and more luxurious.

    Our favorite hotel is on the connected island Nusa Ceningan : Le Pirate Beach Club . Very pretty, eco friendly and with a view of Nusa Lembongan and the water in between the 2 islands. Very good for snorkeling this place, we saw manta rays(!). Please let me know if you're gonna visit these islands, then we have some more advice.

    Groetjes!

    Denise

      I often go to Bali. But the last time went to Nusa Lembongan was in 2003, was very quiet fisherman's village with only 2 resorts. Good to know that it's developed now. Hopefully not become touristy. · (0 likelikes)

    Hi Jelmer,

    Though Bali may be touristy, there are still places or holiday time with less tourist if you want to stroll around.


    Try April-May or September-October for lest touristy period (unless more tourists know about this hehe)


    Avoid Kuta Beach and Legian which are mostly packed with tourists. Other areas of course still roamed by tourists but you can stil have your own space, like Seminyak

    If you like more quiet and laidback, stay in Sanur or Jimbaran area. Nusa Dua is also quiet but occupied by high class hotels/resorts. If you like hilly atmosphere, try Ubud

      Uluwatu is gorgeous too...many beaches by the cliffs. Faved by surfers. If you want to fly a bit further, go to Lombok. (Don't tell to many people) · (0 likelikes)

    hello Jelmer,

    if you want a relaxing place in Indonesia, you should go to Lake Toba,in Sumatra, it s one of the most relaxing place i've ever seen!

    when i stayed there, i didn't see any tourist.. But i don t know if you Will find easy wifi connections ...

    there is no more Time, you will eat typical meals (nasi goreng...) you can rent scooters, take time to read and so on...

    people are really kind!

    enjoy

    You could try the amed region in northern Bali -- it will be a lot quieter than southern Bali, but does take a while to get to from the airport. Also, Gili Air might suit you. Lembongan is nice as well, and easy to get to.
