About Tugu Bali

At Canggu Beach, a quiet surf and sunset beach in the quaint fishermen village of Canggu, at the southwest coast of Bali. Located 30 minutes from Ngurah Rai Int’l Airport, 15 minutes from chic downtown Seminyak, and 10 minutes from a golf course voted to be the best in Southeast Asia. The hotel is designed to bring back to life the romantic, forgotten tales of Java and Bali. The hotel, owned by an Indonesian who has been collecting antiques since the early 1960s, is home to one of the largest original art collections in Southeast Asia. The main building, the Bale Agung, features a distinctive architecture inspired by a secluded village in Central Bali, whereas some of the public areas are original hundreds-years-old structures moved in entirety into the property. The suites are housed in individual buildings tucked in lush tropical gardens and natural lotus pond facing the Indian Ocean.

Day 2 – Flower arranging

Eat Pray Love Tour Bali Travel

The preparation of the frequent Balinese celebrations and ceremonies still plays an important role in the island’s traditional way of life, although time-consuming and restricted to very disciplined attention to details. Balinese offerings, flower & "janur" (palm leaf) arrangement are so colourful, exotic and unique that they were recurrently reviewed in international books and learnt by many around the world.
We will start the day by receiving our blessings by the priest and will be followed by the “Gebogan” flower arrangement at Timpag Village. We will continue our visit to Batukaru Temple (located in the middle of the forest in very spiritual surroundings), and then pass through Jatilweih (a beautiful rice terrace field).

This evening enjoy a Full Moon Dinner. This important ceremony in the Hindu calendar is performed every 30 days and is dedicated to the Moon Goddess, Purnama. The time of the full moon is believed to be the highest culmination of nature’s spirits affected by the moon’s power and so the ceremony is said to calm our minds and cool our hot tempers, receiving gentle and calm energy from the Moon Goddess. The other reason for the full moon ceremony is to celebrate the Balinese Lunar calendar rotation (Penanggal Çasih). According to the Hindu religion, when the moon is full, the goddess Sang Hyang Chandra – the Goddess of Bulan (meaning ‘moon’ in Bahasa) – is at her most powerful. The Balinese people pray to her in order to receive her energy, which is said to be soft, calm and pacifying.

Your evening will begin with a simple offering of incense and flowers in the Resort’s temple. Drinks and canapés served in the bar. Followed by dinner.
