NEW: Our Bali honeymoon

Bali honeymoon

In May this year, we spent a lovely nine days in Indonesia (eight in Bali, one in Jakarta) and we came back with so many wonderful tales of unexplored mangrove forests, beaches where the shore was as clear as a mirror, jungles overrun with monkeys and temples that dazzled us with their ethereal beauty. Scroll through the slideshow above to read about our luxury experiences in Sanur, Ubud and Kuta. And stay tuned for more posts and videos that will have you booking the next ticket to Bali!
