at Brahma Vihara Arama, a tranquil Buddhist temple on the north coast of Bali. It's often called "mini Borobudur", and is a pretty place to spend an hour or so.

wine (reds and whites) and take a walk through one of the many small vineyards where grapes are grown for Bali's Hatten Wine.

classes are held at 7.30am every day at Sumberkima Hill, a 10-minute drive from Pemuteran. Stay for a smoothie bowl or healthy breakfast at the retreat's restaurant after class.
