Hop Over To Bali for a Unique Easter Experience at Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa Bali
13 Mar 2012
This Easter, guests of Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa in Bali can immerse themselves in the artistic traditions of rural village life followed by a celebratory buffet for a wonderful weekend getaway.
On Easter Friday guests will enjoy a culture rich afternoon discovering the rural village near Ubud, with an egg painting, rice field and traditional home experience. Just an hour’s drive away, Ubud is home to verdant rice paddies and unique artistic traditions, including the region’s famous egg painting skills which are still passed from one generation to the next.
Sip a cup of Balinese coffee or tea served with traditional sweets, taking in the peaceful village ambience and watching local women prepare beautiful temple offerings. Delve into Bali’s hand painted egg culture with a visit to a local artisan’s studio. Sit on the veranda and admire his intricate collection. Then learn the skilful techniques, instructed by the villagers, with each guest’s finished creation carefully packed in a hand woven basket to take away. While those who prefer to paint on canvas also have this option available, meaning that each person can choose their ideal artistic experience.
The Ubud adventure continues with a leisurely stroll through the village. Admire the array of tropical fruit trees, which locals will happily pick for visitors to try. Meet a local farmer who creates hats out of palm leaves. Cross a small river to reach the rice paddies which are still ploughed by water buffalo and cultivated by hand. The local farmers here always warmly welcome visitors, and will invite Anantara guests to join them in planting or harvesting the crop. The cultural journey concludes with a tour of the villagers’ traditional homes, for glimpses of their daily activities, homely rituals and friendly smiles.
Following this interactive local experience, guests prepare for a fabulous evening of fine seafood and Latino dance at the resort. Dine on an Easter Bounty of the Sea Buffet featuring a live paella station on SOS Supper Club’s rooftop dining deck against a dramatic ocean backdrop. Then step inside the club venue to watch a sizzling salsa performance.
Beyond the discovery and dining pleasures, Anantara Seminyak is also treating guests to a tempting spa offer. Every person who books the Easter Friday SOS Supper Club Seafood Dinner receives a 20% discount on all treatments at Anantara Spa.
