Many Hot Springs can be found in Bali. The Banjar hot springs are located only a 5 minute drive away from Indo Rumah Zengarden, but you can also do this by foot with one of our guides. This is a beautiful jungle walk and will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete (you can choose for a short or long walk). It may see long, but think of the rewarding feeling you will have when you arrive at your destination The Banjar Hot Springs are also well known as Air Panas. The water runs from little stone fountains into a ‘pond’. These sources in the hills of Banjar are surrounded by luxurious tropical gardens. The water has an agreeable temperature of 38 degrees Celsius and is mildly sulfurous. It is considered holy by the Balinese people. From the eight beautifully sculptured mythological snakeheads the water flows from a natural warm water source straight into the first bath from where it flows over into the second and third bath. When in the third bath you will experience a refreshing massage when the water falls down on you from 3 meters high. It is also a very relaxing and cleansing experience, that is why many locals can be found here when they are “cleansing” themselves

Another popular activity is dolphin watching at Lovina Beach, which is what the beach is famous for. No guarantees can be made that the dolphins will show up, but there is a good chance they will. In the early morning the dolphins swim up to the coast to hunt for small fish. The best way to get a glimpse of these magnificent animals is to take a boat trip before sunrise. There are several fishing boats and traditional Jukungs converted for this purpose. Another welcome bonus is that you will get to enjoy a beautiful sunrise. There can be a lot of boats out on the water so people don’t always like the dolphin watching. There is also a second option and that is that you choose to go Tuna Fishing, big change that you will see hundreds of dolphins all for yourself

The gitgit waterfall is by far the best known waterfall in Bali. The water falls straight down from a 40 meter height. The waterfall is active throughout the entire year, but is at its most impressive when it is the raining season. Directly under the waterfall is a small but deep “lake” and from there the water flows away quickly through the rocks. Close to the waterfall is a bridge over the river and from there you have the perfect view of the waterfall and you are able to take some great pictures. The fine mist will make you wet and will refresh you
