What people are saying about Bali

We had so much fun with this class. Mr. Wayan is a very patient, very engaged teacher who'd show you how to carve and make patterns. The level of your involvement depends on you - you can do most of the work, or you can ask for his help. Overall, we are very happy with the experience and we brought home special, very unique souvenirs. The class is also small (it's just me and my partner) which is great.

Great day out, adult kids went off to do all the rides while I relaxed in close proximity to the swim up pool bar and enjoyed the sunshine. if you can book a cabana around the big pool number 7-11 great spot to be and full on shade. highly recommend day out at Waterbom

Fabulous experience. We took the 10 am rafting time which gave us enough time to get back to our hotels and crash!

We had a ton of fun there. Very tame birds. Wish more had the larger spaces.

Good event good crew! They knew lots of good spots
