Rice, Tabanan, Bali, Indonesia - Location
Bali is a land that seems to have a magnet at its very heart. It is a feeling that is difficult to understand unlessexperienced but once visited you are surely compelled to come back and you will probably want to stay forever! The real magnet for visitors is centred around its mystical culture and dramatic inland scenery - in particular the magnificent rice paddy terraces, rivers valleys and townships such as the infamous Ubud with its many six star villa resort and spa retreats. Tourism in Bali continues to see resilient and solid growth with 2010 being a record year in history for foreign visitor arrivals. The first quarter of 2011 already shows figures up yet again with arrivals 17% up over the same period for last year!
Rice is located in the blissful and tranquil region of Tabanan. Affectionately known as The Real Bali, Tabanan has now emerged as the most desired region in Bali for sophisticated and luxurious private villa estates and prestigious boutique resorts (www.alilavillassoori.com). Adjacent and easily accessible to the popular areas of Seminyak and Canggu, Tabanan offers absolute beauty, tranquillity and relaxation in a region blessed with idyllic views of rice paddy terraces and rolling green landscape as far as the eye can see, unspoilt beaches and coastline, valleys, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, mountains and delightful quaint cultural villages and temples.
Rice is situated in a surreal 1 kilomtere rice terrace bowl valley just 20 minutes from the coast and approximately one hour from bustling Seminyak. The famed village of Ubud and the lakes and mountains of Bedugal are also around a one hour’s drive and make wonderful day trip excursions for those wishing to compliment their relaxing holiday in the idyllic surroundings and the luxury of the Rice boutique villa retreat and spa.
The location of Rice is incomparable in Bali, with Tabanan now seeing spectacular growth in land and property values following the overdevelopment, overcrowding and congestion in the traditional touristic areas of Kuta, Sanur and Seminyak.
