Travel Challenge: An August break in Bali
Saturday 16 July 2011
Every week we invite competing travel companies to give us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a 10-day trip to the Indonesian island of Bali in August. Prices are per person based on two sharing. All prices include flights departing from Heathrow and transfers.
£1,549: Ubud and Manggis
Includes Singapore Airlines flights via Singapore on 29 August. Three nights are spent at the Alila hotel in Ubud and seven nights at Alila Manggis. Daily breakfast and a 60-minute massage are included at both hotels, along with a snorkelling trip and one dinner in Manggis. "Alila's stunning infinity pool in Ubud is the perfect place to cool off after visiting the cultural sites," says Lucy Balding, of Trailfinders. "You'll then move to the tranquil eastern coast, which is a world away from the crowds found elsewhere on Bali". (0845 050 5892; trailfinders.com)
