Bali Holiday

My husband and I are heading for Bali from 2/12 to approx 8 days.
Can anyone recommend good sightseeing trips,retaurants around Seminyak and Ubud and is there a surfing school that anyone knows of. I would love to have a few lessons.Any other information on Bali would be great.

we found that having a driver for part of our bali stay this summer was fantastic....we had the famous putu often mentioned of fodors...
do a search for him on fodors...

he knows great restaurants that are kind to western stomachs and takes you to lovely places....

Buy yourself a Luxe guide asap - www.luxecityguides.com - ideal for restaurant info. Let me try to give u some too- seminyak - Aximo on Seminyak main rd for intl cuisine, Ku de Ta - don't miss it, reservation necessary - for an evening meal sitting outdoors with the waves breaking a few metres away, Ubud - Mosaic - www.mosaic-bali.com - amazing setting and food, Ary's Warung on Ubud main road - stop for lunch and watch the world go by. Shop at Jenggala - www.jenggala-bali.com. Check out www.balidiscovery.com for a surfing school. in Ubud def go to Threads of Life for an amazing textile your - www.threadsoflife.com. ENJOY - i love Bali and cannot wait to go again!

Thank you both for your assistance.We have extended our stay and are now staying 5 nights in Semyniak and 4 nights in Ubud (for total relaxation), what do you think. Any other good tips to make this a memorable holiday would be appreciated.Katie

On Seminyak main road lovely basic spa called jari menari - great setting, very reasonable. The Spa at the Ritz carlton, Thalasso, gorgeous. Seafood at one of the shacks on Jimbaran beach. If u have a Sun in Ubud and want to splurge book in advance for the brunch at Begawan Giri at Biji - what a spread. Uluwatu temple is interesting, not amazing and the monkeys can be troublesome. We rented a motorcycle for a day in Ubud and really enjoyed driving around - saw The Four Seasons Sayan the same day. Def go for a rice paddy field walk in Ubud.
