There are a few hot springs you can visit in Bali from the luxurious Toya Devasya to the more sacred Banjar hot springs, both of which offer some amazing panaromic views.
But the chances are, you will be joined by hoards of other people looking to have the same experience.
We found the Angseri Hot Springs in Tabanan completely by accident. We were driving back from Pura Ulun Danu Bratan (the Temple on the Lake) with some extra time to spare.
It was a bit overcast so we weren’t rushing back to our resort for beach time so our driver recommended a stop off at the Springs. It ended up being one of the highlights of our trip.
The driver took us through some small Balinese villages and windy backroads to get to a car park where we then walked through the forest and down some steep steps before we arrived at these simple but stunning hot springs.
You can choose from the main pool on the rivers edge as well as a series of private baths along the hillside. We opted for both and stayed for around 1.5 hours. We were the only people in the main pool for most of the time, which just made it all the more enjoyable. The Angseri Hot Springs are fed by the apparently healing water flowing off Mount Batukara and the water isn’t too hot making it a pleasant way to spend an overcast afternoon!
And on the trek back up the steps to the car park, there’s a little restaurant where you can stop off for a cold beer before the drive back to Seminyak.
