  ABOUT BALI.NZ


People who are serious about having an unforgettable holiday or adventure want to speak to someone that's already been there and done that - someone that really knows the destination well. No one wants to end up in a horrible hotel or on a boring tour that doesn't suit them because their travel agent doesn't know any better. The world's a big place and it's impossible to know every hotel, resort and activity. But by being a Bali specialist, we stay up to date with pretty much everything about Bali and as you'll see, this will help make your holiday a treasured memory.

Here's another way of looking at it. If you had an ear infection, you've got the choice of going to a General Practitioner or an ear specialist. One knows all about ears and the other has general knowledge about the whole body. It's the same when it comes to getting advice about Bali for your up and coming holiday. You've got the choice of going to a general travel agent or going to a specialist.

Bali.nz is your premier Bali specialist and has been sending people to paradise since 2001. Bali.nz is a division of Asia Holidays and is licensed to operate under Go Holidays Ltd Broker Division. We work from a home office which saves on overheads which helps keep our prices to you down. You are welcome to visit to discuss your holiday plans but please call first to arrange a time.

Our aim is to be able to offer you the best possible advice, price and service.

Andrew's List of Favorites in Bali and Indonesia

Bali Hotel: He loves staying anywhere that?s beyond what he can afford! Highlights have been the Villa Sentosa and Villa Batavia in Seminyak, the Puri Kamadalu in an enormous villa with an even bigger private pool. Also the Pita Maha in a Pool Villa overlooking the river and rice paddies.

Bali Restaurant for Dinner: The Living Room, Seminyak. Almost surreal atmosphere with great food and caf? del mar type music.

Bali Restaurant for Breakfast: Tekor Restaurant, Legian. Massive breakfasts of an exceptional quality. Great views under the big trees to the beach and surf. Ku De Ta is also a great place for a leisurely brunch.

Shop in Bali: Geneva Handicrafts. Such a great range of handicrafts at good prices. Always inspiring.

Most Interesting Place in Indonesia: Tana Toraja, Sulawesi. This is a small area high up in the hills in Central Sulawesi which he visited in 2000. The culture is very unique, you can go trekking to see caves full of human bones, stay in unique and very old Toraja houses, sample some of the best coffee in the world and take amazing panoramic photos of rice terraces with a mountain backdrop. It was a long bus trip getting there but unforgettable.

Snorkelling: Togian Islands and Pulau Bunaken, Sulawesi. These days Pulau Bunaken is better than the Togian Islands so for some of the best in diving and snorkelling that Indonesia has to offer, take a trip to Bunaken Island. You won't be disappointed.

Indonesian City: Jogjakarta, Java.

Indonesian Beach: Tarimbang Beach in Sumba. Absolutely breathtaking bay. I haven't come across a more inviting and idyllic beach.

Food: His parents-in-law's 'warung' in Cileungsi, Bogor. They cook the best Indonesian food around. And his wife cooks the best Indonesian food in New Zealand!
