CP Lounge is located halfway up from the Jalan Monkey Forest Road, and features a dining and entertainment complex owned and run by a royal Ubud family member, who also occasionally serves as the venue’s fun-spirited host.

Its semi-open entertainment hall is reminiscent of a grand Balinese meeting pavilion and houses billiards and a makeshift dance floor.

Picture three minuscule desert islands, fringed by white-sand beaches and coconut palms, sitting in a turquoise sea: the Gilis are a vision of paradise. Each island has its own special character. Gili Trawangan (universally known as Gili T) is by far the most cosmopolitan; its bar and party scene is vibrant, its accommodation and restaurants are close to definitive tropical chic. Gili Air has the strongest local character, but also a perfect mix of buzz and bliss. Gili Meno is flirting with shoreline gentrification.

During his reign, the last king of East Bali built two beautiful water palaces, Ujung and Tirtagangga. The water palace Tirtagangga is constructed around a natural resource of which the water is deemed to be holy. Five basins, fountains and statues from the Hindu culture provide the garden with the appearance of entering an open-air museum. The wealth of trees and flowering plants makes the garden radiate with serenity and peacefulness. The eruption of Gunung Agung in 1963, accompanied by earthquakes, largely destroyed the water palaces. A few years ago, both water palaces were completely restored. A must see!
