East Bali is the destination to seek connection to authentic Bali life as if in the old days, with all its nature, charm and ancient traditions. The pace of life is slower here and the people are even friendlier than anywhere else in Bali.
The Regency of Karangasem has it all – dramatic scenery, dozens of beaches, coral reefs and shipwrecks for diving and snorkeling, ancient sites, a unique Bali Aga (original inhabitants) village, tropical forest, beautiful rice terraces, royal palaces, beautiful quiet roads and trekking opportunities– and dominating the whole Regency is the brooding presence of Bali’s highest and most sacred volcano, Mount Agung.
Seraya-Barat is located next to the small traditional fishing village of Ujung, which itself boasts the beautiful and peaceful Royal Water Palace constructed by the lat king of Karangasem. At a ten minute drive from Seraya-Barat lies the city of Amlapura, the capital of the regency.
