Top 10 Things to do in Sidemen, Bali (by The Solo Girl’s Travel Guide)

Today I’m sharing a place near and dear to my heart with you; Sidemen, Bali.

My top 10 things to do in Sideman, Bali. 

 


Now, if someone tells you that Bali is too crowded, that it’s too touristy, guaranteed… they’ve never been to Sidemen. (pronounced; See-deh-men)

This is the real Bali. Ok, I’m ready for an adventure now… these are the top 10 things must do while you’re in Sidemen.

#1 – stay in a luxury resort.

And number one is, of course, stay in a luxury resort. My favorite resort in Sidemen is called Samanvaya. It is a luxury, adult only, Eco Resort and Spa. 

I mean, check out this view: 

Hello, Eco stay goals…

#2 – Drive the Sidemen loop.

Last year, I was in Sidemen for my birthday and I went on GoogleMaps, and I saw this loop. So we hopped on some motorbikes and explored the mountains in Sidemen. I think you’ll love driving through this beautiful scenic route. There’s definitely something special about being on a motorbike in Asia… it just feels so freeing. If you’re not a seasoned motorbike driver, then don’t worry, you can hop on the back of some local guys bikes and they can give you a Sidemen tour.

PRO TRAVEL TIP:

Download maps.me app to get an offline map just to be on the safe side incase your service drops out in the mountains!

#3 – Go on a guided [bike] tour.

The Sidemen Tour we did with the lovely staff at Samanvaya was amazing! We drove through some of the lushest tropical landscapes, saw monkeys, temples, saw some gorgeous ocean views, and (hopefully for you, it was closed for us..) a waterfall. I highly recommend getting in touch with them if you’re in Sidemen and doing this, it was my hands-down favorite day.

#4 – visit white sand beach.

We went to a beautiful beach on the coast called White Sand Beach. This was included in our tour mentioned in #3. There’s a really nice view, we had lunch on the beach and then a swim in the sea, total bliss!

#5 – get a massage.

Do I need to say more about this…? I think not.

#6 – eat ribs for dinner.

I highly recommend you eat ribs for dinner at Maha Neka Sidemen. So delicious and the prices are so cheap! 48,000 IDR ($3.30 US) for large pork ribs served with vegetables, sauce and fries or rice. 

#7 – go for happy hour.

A girl in my Facebook group recommended this place – they have buy one get two offers on selected drinks. All along the main road in Sidemen, you’ll find bars that have happy hour specials… but I want you to go to Wapa Di Ume it’s a really fancy eco-resort, and they have these amazing lemongrass mojitos on the 2 for 1 deal.. mmmm! You have my permission, this is your treat night.

#8 – Rice Field Walk.

*Disclaimer* I never actually made it on the rice field walk that Samanvaya resort offers but I really recommend you do it, they say it is really nice to do this first thing in the morning when it’s not too hot out. Check out this drone shot!

rice field walk Sidemen Bali

#9 – the sidemen swing.

This is one of those massive swings where you’re catapulted into the jungle. To find this, just look for “Sidemen Adventures” on google maps.

PRO TRAVEL TIP:

To get an awesome photo, tie a wrap skirt over the top of your seatbelt and harness, and make sure it flows over the back when you swing!

#10 – Amrita Cafe.

This is a cute little cafe that I love and visit every time I come to Sidemen. It’s hard to miss, it’s right on the main road, so you could even stop on your way out for a cup of coffee, or they have a lot of really really nice teas as well. By the way, this is also a guest house if you want a little bit of cheaper stay, this is also a really, really nice place. Here’s the link to book with them. I do like this adventure if you have any more Sidemen recommendations for me please leave a comment below.

I made a whole YouTube video that takes you through these tips as well, if you prefer watching, here it is: 

Now, real quick before you go… if you want to join me on an adventure like this, I will give you all the information in the link below. My Go Baby Glow Tours are coming soon, so get ready to apply below!

The Best Bali Hostel and Hotel for Solo Female Travelers

Hotel Review: Puri Garden Hotel and Hostel in Ubud, Bali

I recently took a break from the beach (rough life) and traveled up to Ubud, Bali for an island getaway at the lush Puri Garden Hotel and Hostel in Ubud, Bali.

In this video, I give you a total hotel tour and I take you to my secret healer in Ubud. For all the deets, keep scrolling…

 

Puri Garden has Hostel Dorms for Backpackers and Private Rooms for Solo Female Travelers

I stayed in a private room overlooking the rice field (not me pictured…duh). I was supposed to stay for 2 days and had such an amazing time that I ended up extending my stay for an extra night.

private hotel room at Puri Garden Hotel and Hostel in Ubud, Bali

Book on Booking.com

My friend, Hope, stayed in the dorms. The nice thing about the dorms at Puri Garden is that they are small. Her dorm had the capacity for eight people total. The dorms also have a little porch where you can sit and people watch (my favorite hostel activity).

A Social Hostel with Activities Every Day

Puri Garden has thought of a brilliant way to make it easy to meet people. They pull their guests out of their beds with free activities. Yes, fee.

  • Every day at 7am: Sunrise yoga 
  • Every day at 1 pm: Free massages, free pedicures, and free manicures
  • Daily events such as movie night, game night, quiz night, BBQ, karaoke, and puppy therapy!

What to Eat in Ubud?

Puri Garden has a cafe on-site called the Ubudian Cafe which offers a mix of western food and Indonesia food. Pro Tip: Try the pizza. The cafe is right next to the pool and is usually the main hang out area for travelers. 

When you want to mix it up, you’re within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Ubud. You must try Taco Casa, Monsieur Spoon, and Habitat Cafe (just watch out…the monkeys will steal your purse it you leave it on your chair).

Visit My Secret Healer

Yes, my secret healer. I don’t give her information out publicly, as she’s not a tourist healer…she’s literally a traditional Balinese healer that speaks just a little bit of English, located in a small village outside of Ubud, not too far away from Puri Garden. There is only one way to see her, though, through my driver, Wayan. You can contact him via Instagram. Tell him Alexa sent you. 

What to expect: My Bali healer starts every session by basically doing an audit of your body through your feet. She can tell if you have digestion issues, back issues, high blood pressure – just by the reflexology points in your feet. She then gives a healing massage or manipulates your organs to get your body aligned. What you didn’t see in the video was that I basically got topless and she did the full-body audit. This is normal.

The first time I saw her, I was a skeptic. Wayan brought me to her because I had tremendous pain in my hip that wouldn’t go away. I tried yoga, physical therapy, and acupuncture…nothing worked for months. I laid down in her hut and she told me my hip hurt because of my digestion and inflammation in my stomach. I thought she was crazy. She then rearranged my organs. Yes, you heard that right. It was so painful…but when I stood up, the pain was gone and it has been gone ever since. I looked at her in shock and she just gave me that universal “told you so” look.

Cost: 150k IDR offering (Wayan will help you prepare this).

So if you have chronic pain or a new travel pain, go to her for relief of physical pain. And then, she will perform an aura cleansing on you as she chants this beautiful song to the gods in Balinese.

Additional Ubud Travel Tips

  • If Wayan is booked, use my other driver, Arta.
  • Puri Garden has a sister hostel called Arya Wellness Retreat which is one of the first all-inclusive-style hostels ever. Free wellness classes, breakfasts, and more.

Pool Villa Bali

47 Best Private Pool Villas in Bali (September 2020)

This sexy island is full of exotic private villas

…but not all villas come with a private pool!

Skinny dip under the stars. Have a floating breakfast in the pool. Tan with no tan lines! Get a lil’ romantic. And do it all to fit your budget…because this is Bali where you can get a private pool villa as cheap as $33 per night.

BUT, Keep in mind!

Half the private pool villas in Bali are in shitty locations. So don’t go booking the first private pool villa you find! You need an expert to find the best private villas that are worth your time. Hi, that’s me. 

I’ve been living in and traveling around Bali for nearly a year now – finding the BEST private Bali villas on the island.

I’ve handpicked 47 of the Best Private Pool Villas in Bali – in the best locations with the most incredible staff – to make you feel like god damn royalty.

In this list, you’ll find affordable private pool villas for solo travelers, romantic private pool villas for couples, and apacious private pool villas for families. Private villas in Bali are much much cheaper than private villas you’d find on most other exotic islands in Asia or The Caribbean. So YES, you can afford this.

 

Pro Tip

dots

Keep in mind that the prices of these villas fluctuate based on the time of year! Before you pass on a villa that’s too expensive, check to see the price on your ideal dates in Bali! 

 

Okay, let’s get naked.
