The Indigenous Bali Experience at The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua

Ideally situated in the heart of Bali’s breathtaking landscape, the five-star resort invites travellers on a captivating cultural journey with the launch of its quarterly spotlight series, Indigenous Bali.

Aptly named Indigenous Bali, this innovative initiative celebrates the island’s rich heritage and vibrant diversity, offering guests an immersive experience into the distinctive characteristics of each of Bali’s nine regencies.

The inaugural edition of Indigenous Bali sets its focus on the enchanting Badung Regency, a region renowned for its lush landscapes, undulating hills and picturesque coastlines that epitomise coastal living at its finest. From the vibrant tourist hubs of Nusa Dua, Uluwatu, Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu in the south to the serene northern expanses perfect for nature-focused activities like exhilarating rafting adventures, Badung Regency promises a haven for both nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike.

During this quarter, guests at The Laguna Bali will have the opportunity to explore Badung’s iconic landmarks and cultural treasures, including the UNESCO World Heritage site Mengwi Kingdom and Pura Taman Ayun, the bustling Kedonganan Fish Market, the wildlife sanctuary Sangeh Monkey Forest and the majestic Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park, home to a towering statue of Lord Vishnu. For those seeking unique experiences, The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua recommends the vintage sunset drive and picnic excursion, a classic Volkswagen adventure to Tanah Barak Beach for a scenic drive and curated picnic, offering a taste of nostalgia amidst Badung’s natural beauty.

Art enthusiasts will be captivated by the intricate endek patterns presented by renowned artist Made Wartawan, whose work reflects the spirit of Badung’s cultural heritage and artistic legacy.

Culinary enthusiasts can indulge in Badung Regency specials at The Laguna Bali, including the Balinese blessing ceremony and buffet dinner, the vibrant Peken Traditional Market Experience at de Bale Lounge & Bar and specially crafted Badung-inspired cocktails. Moreover, guests can immerse themselves in relaxation at Lagoon Spa with the Badung algae wrap and the Signature Lagoon Kelapa Ritual, offering revitalising spa experiences inspired by Badung’s coastal lifestyle.

As part of the Balinese celebrations, guests are invited to participate in Galungan and Kuningan, marking the triumph of goodness over evil with blessings and meaningful rituals, as well as Nyepi, the Balinese Day of Silence, observed with silence, fasting and meditation, transforming Bali’s bustling streets into serene, empty spaces fostering an atmosphere of tranquillity.
