Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2017
If you are an avid reader you will not give this very special event a miss. This year Ubud Writers & Readers Festival will bring together readers and writers from around the world from October 25 to 29 in Ubud, about 30 kilometers north east of Seminyak which is around an hour and a half car ride.
Across five days, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival delivers an eclectic program of events – from fiery conversations to intimate literary lunches, gripping live performances to hands-on workshops.
Bali offers so many things to do during your holiday. There is a long list of activity to do from early morning up to the following morning.
If you plan an early morning activity like Mount Batur hiking or early morning fishing trip or even early morning flight, you need not to worry for missing your breakfast. Our Guest Service Assistant at the Front Desk has some selection for you to choose to suit your liking. Tell her or him the time you want it and they will have your breakfast in a takeaway box ready right before your departure from Amadea
Galungan and Kuningan Festival
There are several auspicious dates coming up on Bali's religious calendar that make the island so unique. Galungan on 1st November 2017 marks the beginning of a ten day festival that sees the Balinese return home to their ancestral villages to pray in their family temples. It involves elaborate offerings to appease the Gods as well as the unseen elements of the underworld.
A number of symbolic rites will be performed over several days culminating in a final ceremony known as Kuningan on 11th November 2017. This is an opportunity for the Balinese to honour the spirits of defied ancestors and express gratitude for the gift of life. The Galungan holiday is a great time to visit Bali and experience its rich cultural heritage.

White Water Rafting Adventure
There is nothing more exhilarating than exploring the natural beauty of Bali with a whitewater rafting excursion. A number of reputable operators are available to conduct guided tours along some of the island’s most breathtaking stretches of river. It is an opportunity to escape the hectic pace of mainstream tourism and experience a side of Bali that remains untouched by the hands of time. A rafting adventure is a combination of challenging rapids and gentle paddling along a river edged by tropical terrain. All tours include transportation, international standard rafting equipment and lunch upon completion.
Visit our Guest Service Assistant to make the necessary booking arrangements for a fun day out that the entire family will enjoy. Alternatively, email us via email@example.com to create a holiday itinerary prior to arriving in Bali.
