The nicest trip is to drive through Ubud – Kintamani – Tejakula – Bondalem. It takes 3 hours from the airport and 2 hours from Ubud.
The journey goes through beautiful rice fields, artisan villages as well as volcano and plantation landscapes.
From Ubud you are driving north via Kintamani; a few kilometers after Kintamani (in the village of Desa Dausa) turn right (follow the signs to Tejakula / Bondalem); thus, don’t follow the course of the main road, which goes to the left; follow the signs to “Shambala”, “Bali Mandala” or “Bondalem Beach Club”. In Tejakula at the coastal road (T-crossing) turn left; the next village is Bondalem. In the village at the crossing of the temple and the market (Pura Bale Agung) turn right towards the sea (follow the signs “Shangrila” or Bondalem Beach Club”; follow this road until its end; you will find Prana Veda directly by the sea at the left side.
