WHERE TO STAY
Temple Lodge, Bingin Beach
WHY WE LOVE IT
The View: The stunning Temple Lodge overlooks the ocean from atop Bukit peninsula’s cliffs. You can access the beach from a staircase connected to the lodge (which we HIGHLY recommend). Also, don’t miss the infinity pool — you’ll feel as though you’re swimming right out to the vast ocean.
The Yoga: Offered on the daily, with schedules updated seasonally. Classes vary from Hatha Flow to Vinyasa, Yin Yang Flow and 5 Element Yoga. They welcome all ability levels and the temple is perfect for ultimate meditation.
The Spa: The Temple Lodge provides personalized spa treatments incorporating organic herbs and oils. The spa room is very intimate — and every single person we encountered was beyond welcoming.
WHAT TO DO
Bingin Beach: Bingin Beach is an idyllic spot nestled on the Indian Ocean. Surfers travel from all over the world just to say they were there! We recommend trying out at least one surf lesson (or two). This is definitely the spot to do so.
Morning Run: The village surrounding the Temple Lodge is stunningly colorful and classic Balinese. Take a morning jog and explore your surroundings. And, if you lose your way, there are friendly folks everywhere to sort you right.
Gili Islands: Escape to the Gili Islands and snorkel with the turtles! Hundreds hatch on the Gili Islands annually and the babies are the cutest. Swim in the crystal clear waters alongside these magnificent creatures.
Nusa Dua: If you’re really up for an adventure, we recommend you try a scuba diving class at Nusa Dua Beach! The ocean floor is full of bright coral, submerged statues, and an array of sea life.
