Experience the beauty of a Balinese sunrise from the summit of Mount Batur, an active volcano.

Your hike begins in the night. You navigate rugged trails under a star-studded sky with the help of local guides. The cool mountain breeze, the occasional rustling of leaves, and the peacefulness of the night create a serene atmosphere.

As you reach the peak at dawn, you gradually witness the sky turn orange and pink. The sun rises behind Mount Agung and casts its warm light across Lake Batur below.
This hike is an experience — perhaps one of the best sunrises you might ever see.

I went to Pinstripe while me and some friends had a staycation in Tegalalang for the weekend. After had dinner we decided to go check the bar at Pinstripe to get maybe one or two glass of margarita. Once I saw their cocktails menu, I had difficulties to choose between their well-crafted menu. Then Panji, the head mixologist served us a welcome drinks, I never expect the taste to be sooo delicious. From there I totally forgot the margarita and just let Panji surprise me with the magical taste of the cocktails that are so delicious I cannot stop sipping them. I tried to guess the ingredients Panji use in my cocktails, which of course mostly failed. The cocktails ingredients are source locally which really interesting because many of them usually use as cooking ingredients.Definitely will come back to try all the menu.

This is one of my favourite cocktail bars in Ubud! Pinstripe is a must visit bar that is great to visit solo or with a group of friends. They have a huge range of premium spirits, if you are into tequila, gin or whiskeys, this place has the biggest range in Ubud.The cocktails are really inventive and aesthetic. Personally I love the Mezcal one with the peacock feather, it is delicious and the flavours are balanced perfectly.The atmosphere is cosy yet it’s a large space with an indoor and outside terrace with jungle views. Perfect place to sit of an afternoon with cocktails or wine and then move inside for the lively atmosphere at night time.This bar is really unique and I recommend to all my friends visiting Bali to make sure they don’t miss out on visiting!

This is simply as good as a bar gets. It is somewhat hidden and more a speak easy than a bar. Staff is impeccably talented. The atmosphere is perfect right down to the smallest detail. I only wish we went here earlier. It may just be the best bar experience in Bali, and that is truly quite that statement.

Exquisite drinks. Didn’t eat this time. Will be back 100%.Come here if you value:- exceptionally drinks with presentation- fluent English speaking, attentive waitstaff- a low-key vibe, fancy atmosphere, tastefully decorative and clean facilities that sets a 1950s moodWent here an hour before closing for nightcaps. And no they didn’t kick us out even after it was closed. Managed to have 4 cocktails between two people plus complimentary welcome AND send off drinks. The send off drink is that light purple potion, which I forget the name of, and it’s unforgettably delicious.Smoking allowed on the deck area. Think cigars are available for purchase.Look forward to returning for more poisons.
