How is Bedugul in general?

A Refreshing Lake Resort

Bedugul is home to Bali’s botanical gardens. Here, visitors can walk through the grounds, visit greenhouses, or stop for a picnic. The park is popular with locals on weekends with fun out-bound activities for families and friends. Restaurants and hotels are scattered nearby, so this can be a pleasant place to stay overnight. Beratan Lake is another popular attraction in Bedugul, on which the Ulundanu temple sits. The temple is very pretty and is a nice place to stop. Traditional boats can be hired for a short trip exploring the lake surroundings. Other two lakes Buyan and Tamblingan are also nearby. Hikers and bikers will enjoy the cool, mountainous Bedugul and continue their trips to hidden waterfalls. If you want to escape from the hustle and heat of Kuta and Canggu, having a staycation in Handara Golf Resort for a couple of days can be a great alternative for the next weekend.
