***

As you’ve probably all seen and heard there was a fairly large earthquake on Lombok recently that caused some significant damage to both Lombok and the Gili Islands. We have been working around the clock to look after those affected and we’re happy to report all are safe and well. Most buildings on Gili, however, have sustained some form of structural damage that has deemed them unsafe (for now) to stay in.

Based on this and until we can be 100% confident appropriate repairs have been completed and our accommodation is again safe to stay in, we will be implementing revised itineraries in Bali from now on that do not include the Gili Islands. I’m sure you can understand that our customer's safety is our absolute priority and considering the circumstances that this is a 'must-do'. However please trust that the alternative itineraries will still be amazing and include as much, if not more, inclusions than the original itinerary.

The alternative activities travellers will get on this temporarily revised itinerary instead of the Gili Islands Boat Trip and Bike Ride are:

- Snorkelling in Lovina
- The EPIC Sekumpul Waterfalls (known as the best in Bali) 
- Natural Hot Springs in Lovina
- The famous Tegallalan Rice Terraces near Ubud. We will most likely do this for both Bali Intro and Bali Experience, even though we have not currently written this in the revised Bali Experience itinerary. 
- Balinese Cooking Class (for Bali Intro 9 & 12days)

For those with questions or concerns about their safety coming to Bali, please rest assured that the areas we are travelling to are safe and unaffected, people should be excited to join us in Bali and will certainly still have an amazing time here.
