Remote Lands, Inc., the world's foremost private tour operator focused exclusively on Asia, offers a wealth of creative experiences in its custom Bali itineraries for couples and families.
Remote Lands, Inc., the New York- and Bangkok-based luxury private tour operator, abounds with unique ideas for custom Asia holidays throughout the year. June through September is one of the best times for a luxury vacation in Bali, Indonesia, for example.

With five-star resorts, excellent beaches and a lush hilly interior, first-rate shopping and rich culture (including art, architecture, performing arts and cuisine), Bali is an ideal summer destination for both honeymooners and families alike.
Choosing the right accommodation is the foundation of an indelible trip, and Remote Lands has excellent relationships with many luxury Bali hotels, including the three Amanresorts, the Oberoi, COMO Shambhala and Uma Ubud, Ayana Resort & Spa, the Alila resorts, the Legian, Four Seasons, and many others.
"A luxury Bali vacation with Remote Lands offers countless opportunities to experience authentic Balinese culture and interact with local people," said Catherine Heald, Remote Lands' co-founder and CEO. Among our favorite Bali activities: private Balinese dance and/or gamelan music instruction; hiking or biking through verdant rice-terrace landscapes; visiting secluded Hindu temples for private blessings with local priests; private cooking classes at local restaurants; surfing lessons off Seminyak beach; bespoke shopping tours focusing on Balinese art, traditional handicrafts, or contemporary fashion and jewelry boutiques; elephant riding and white-water rafting; making batiks with local artisans; sunrise volcano hikes; and much more.

Remote Lands is particularly excited about affordable options for private helicopter aerial tours over Bali, the perfect pinnacle to any family holiday or honeymoon. There truly is no better way to take in the variety of Bali's stunning physical environment, from the white-sand beaches of Seminyak to the cliffs of Uluwatu, from the green hills of Ubud to the imposing volcanoes of the north.

Remote Lands also designs trips beyond Bali, and cost-effective options for private air charters make getting from Bali to such destinations as Komodo Island, Raja Ampat and other locales easier than ever.

New Direction for Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan

Immersed in lush jungle greenery in the Ayung River valley, the Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan has introduced a new concept incorporating authentic spiritual traditions, such as chakra balancing, Balinese Ayurvedic practices, yoga and meditation.
The inland jungle setting provides a serene, nurturing environment, ideal for treatments that offer a deep inner focus. Guests have the opportunity to learn genuine Balinese philosophy and discover a truly Eastern healing experience, providing a practical, modern approach to living in bliss.
The new Sayan Spa concept was developed by Helen Norman, senior director of spa for both Four Seasons Resorts Bali. A British native, Norman brings nearly 20 years of experience in the spa and wellness industry. Most recently she managed the multi-award winning Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong.
According to Helen Norman: “Balinese medicine adheres to the concept of complete oneness – emphasizing that there is no separation between us and what is around us. Ill health is caused not only by imbalance in the physical body, but also by spiritual disconnection to the larger world. In the Spa, we’re offering a truly Eastern healing experience, with a powerful selection of authentic Balinese healing traditions to help reconnect you to your whole, complete self.”
New signature treatments at the Spa are selected according to each individual’s needs. The seven Chakra Blessing treatments are designed to restore the energy centres that run along the spinal column. Balinese Ayurvedic healing aims to re-establish balance and wholeness. At the same time, local rituals such as Batu Kali Riverstone Ritual reflect the age-old cleansing and beautifying traditions of the Balinese people.

Nestled within the Resort’s rice terraces and herb gardens, set on the banks of the sacred Ayung River, the Spa encompasses just six treatment rooms, including three couple’s suites, two double-size Spa villas and a Royal Spa Villa with outdoor shower and bath. Guests can relax together in the shared hot and cold plunge pools, plus separate men’s and women’s saunas and steam rooms located in the changing rooms.
New Concepts at Both Four Seasons Spas in Bali
With two Spas in Bali, Four Seasons reflects the two sides of Balinese spiritual philosophy – balancing the internal and external worlds. At the jungle-immersed Sayan, the focus is inward and nurturing, incorporating authentic spiritual traditions such as chakra balancing and Balinese Ayurvedic healing. At the beachside Jimbaran Bay, the feeling is open and outward, focused on the cleansing powers of water, salt and crystals. Visiting both Four Seasons Spas is ideal to gain a total appreciation of the Balinese approach to life.
As Helen Norman explains, “Spas around the world have always been influenced by Balinese culture, and these two Four Seasons Spas renew that international leadership with the priorities of authenticity and education, inspiring our guests to bring genuine Balinese practices into their daily lives as a simple way to maintain wellness and peace of mind.”
