Tirta Gangga Water Palace

Tirta Gangga water palace: located on the east side of Bali, this former Royal Palace is now a beautiful water palace garden with 3 beautifully appointed villas and restaurant overlooking the various pools. As you walk in through the main entrance, you will be overwhelmed with the beauty of the large pools, all fed by natural springs. As is common in Bali, there is an abundance of statues and craftwork which can be found surrounding all the pools, along with luscious gardens with some incredible trees and flowers. The Banyan tree just above the villas is simply majestic. Some of the large pools, including an Olympic size pool, are used for swimming. When you jump in you will immediately notice the refreshing magical quality of the water, one that is immediately distinguishable from the normally chlorinated pools that we often swim in. The spring water against your body is soothing, crystal clear and silky. Surrounded in this bliss, one can easily feel royal for that oh so brief moment.
