Not everyone, however, has the time to research such a visit and we have, therefore, upon request and to facilitate this, put together the Around the Island in two weeks in boutique style package that we are offering to our guests.
This programme takes you from Sanur to Ubud and subsequently to MMP. From these locations you will make a number of excursions and visits focused on the culture and nature of Bali. We take you to the major highlights, but also focus on a number of largely unexplored treasures. These are detailed below but can be tailored to your individual wishes. Finally, a stay in Permuteran on the North Coast close to the idyllic Menjangan island is scheduled to allow you to unwind on the beach and snorkel or dive on some of Bali''''s best reefs. At all locations you stay in boutique hotels with a standard comparable to MMP. We believe that this programme gives you the best introduction to the culture and natural wonders of the Island while keeping travel time within reasonable proportions. MMP will take care of all transport and the visits and tours will be accompanied by staff from MMP and its partner hotels.
