Sitting pretty amidst the emerald green foothills of Mount Batukaru in central Bali is the sleepy little town of Belimbing. The perfect spot for a cosy little getaway, Belimbing is one of few areas in Bali that has remained untouched by the tourist trade. A drive out here would be the perfect complement to a stay at one of the elite Bali wedding villas on the island, and the Alila Villas Soori offers an idyllic option of luxury villas Bali has to offer the honeymooning couple.
A unique and picturesque aspect of the village is its beautiful rice paddy terraces, glimmering bright and harmonious on the slope of the mountain. The cool and misty expanses of the landscape imbue the surroundings with a tranquil air that is a refreshing break from the chaotic cities dotting the Balinese landscape. Visitors can also find solace and contemplative surrounds in the temples nearby, Taman Ayun temple located high on the steep sweeps of Mount Batu Karu, which adds to its mystical ambiance. Be mindful of local customs about modesty when you visit the temple, and do not feed the monkeys that scamper throughout the grounds.
