Guests can now really immerse themselves in the Balinese culture and what daily life is like with Ayana Hotels’ new Bali Cultural Experience package.

This 3-night package includes five-star accommodations, a guided tour of Jimbaran’s famous markets, a professional cooking lesson at Rimba’s Scenography Cooking School, authentic Balinese dining experiences, and a traditional Kecak dance performance.

Guests staying at AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali, the sister resort RIMBA Jimbaran Bali by AYANA, and the luxurious The Villas at AYANA Resort, Bali will have the opportunity to explore the “Island of the Gods” while feasting on local dishes and learning how to make some themselves. Guests who book the Bali Cultural Experience package, will explore the stalls of fresh fruit, local delicacies, hand-woven textiles and traditional handiworks of Jimbaran’s vibrant markets, and then return to the hotel, where they’ll learn to prepare authentic Balinese dishes using the island’s exotic produce at Rimba’s Scenography Cooking School.
