Driver was prompt and messaged me on his arrival to hotel. Greeted with a smile and bottle of water on arrival to excursion. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and explained the plan for the day. I was dressed in traditional Balinese attire and transported to the water temple. Once there again everything was explained and had time to ask questions and enjoy the experience. My driver took plenty of photos of my experience in purification pool for memories. Once finished we were transported to hotel for brunch, free time at the pool plus afternoon excursion. Was given a choice between breakfast menu or lunch and the food was delicious. I chose yoga and had 90 minute private 1-1 yoga lesson, I am a beginner and this was not a problem for the lesson. My driver then dropped me back to my hotel. Overall an amazing day which I would highly recommend.

An amazing day with an amazing yoga instructor. Patoo was responding to all our questions about the culture, explained the ritual of water purification in the nicest way and joined us in all activities. She was also very friendly and always asking if we find anything challenging so she’d help. The yoga session was amazing.

Overall, amazing trip. Our tour guide Gede Egon was great, very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. Preparation and communication was easy. The water ritual was great, lunch was delicious, and yoga was my favorite part. Putu was great to relax at the resort and lunch with. 5 stars, all around great experience.
