something lovely discovered by chance

Being creative is not a hobby. It's a way of life.

Work Process

Alongside being a corporate lawyer I decided to take my passion for travel to another level. I am a UK qualified Independent Travel Agent, partnered with a number of leading and well known suppliers in the travel industry, including TUI, Shangri-La, Railbookers, Marriott, Olympic Holidays, Jumeirah and many more. This partnership, along with my passion for travel and depth of knowledge, allows me to provide you with complementary expert and tailored advice, some of the best rates on the market, and personal recommendations on many worldwide destinations, catering for all needs and budgets.  Company and large group booking options are also available.

Best time to visit: The dry season from May- October

Budget: Bali suits everyone’s budgets from backpackers to those wanting extreme luxury


Safety: Bali is extremely safe, especially for solo female travellers. Road safety is the biggest thing to watch out for, especially if you intend on driving a motorbike.

 

If you are looking for somewhere to escape to from the busy city life then look no further…

You cannot go wrong with a trip to Bali. Whether you are looking to find your inner zen, want some downtime on a beautiful beach, or want an active holiday with a few days reserved for relaxing, Bali has it all.

I travelled to Bali with a friend in September 2018 for 10 days but I wish I had spent longer there and already am itching to go back. We started off in Seminyak, which is known for its beautiful sandy beaches that are particularly suited for surfing, and stayed at the Marriot Hotel in Kuta near to the beach front. We gave up on the idea of surfing after one lesson and spent most of our days at the beach clubs (namely Potato Head Beach Club and Finn’s Beach Club) or pigging out at one of the many delicious restaurants. They have a variety of options to cater to anyone’s palette, from Aussie style brunch cafes (try Sisterfields) to local Indonesian food (try Mades Warung) to fine dining (try Sarong restaurant).

After having our fair share of beach time we moved on to Ubud to experience the tranquil environment Bali is best known for. Our hotel, Padma Resort, was beautiful and had the longest infinity pool in Bali which was set deep within the jungle. This setting, coupled with daily yoga classes, massages and delicious food (my favourite restaurants in Ubud were Hujuan and Locavore), had me feeling completely relaxed and switched off from the real world, which as a corporate lawyer is almost impossible to do. To top it off I would always end my day with charcoal flavoured ice cream from Gelato Secrets, an interesting flavour that had me going back for more.

Now if you are anything like me, I cannot relax for 10 days straight without doing some sort of activity, and so I decided it made complete sense to wake up at 5am and hike to the top of Mount Batur in the dark to watch sunrise…and I do not regret it all! This was another side of Bali that I am glad I had experienced, and standing at the top of Mount Batur whilst watching the sun rise over the rice paddies made me feel deeply satisfied and content…Bali has this effect on you. If hiking is not your thing there are plenty of other activities to fill your days in Bali, from surfing to zip lining for the adventurous to visiting the rice paddies and the monkey forest for those who are more laid back.

Finally, no trip to Bali is complete without taking in the culture and being a part of it. The Balinese are spiritual people and you can find a temple almost on every corner. We only managed to visit some temples in Ubud but there are some striking temples all around Bali that are worth a visit, such as Pura Tanah Lot, Pura Luhur Lempuyang and Uluwatu Temple.

Bali has a special place in my heart and I will definitely be back soon. If you are planning a trip to Bali please do get in touch for any information, I will happily provide my list of recommendations for food and sight-seeing.

Apart from visiting the popular tourist spots, I love to venture into the culture, food, and heritage of a destination to make me feel like I have truly experienced local life in that particular place.  Here I'm sharing my experiences...visit regularly for updates!

See what some clients have to say!

"LaTrouvaille were approachable, responsive and gave us exactly what we asked for when looking to book our trip to a tropical island paradise.  Although we ended up booking directly with BA (solely for the purpose of using an eVoucher that we received due to a cancelled Coronavirus trip), I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again! Thanks for all your help!"
                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ~Rishi Naidoo

"I always work with La Trouvaille when I’m booking my trips. Ruchika’s enthusiasm shines through- she truly wants you to have the best time and the restaurant tips she provides are invaluable. I’ve never had a bad meal on her recommendations! She’s friendly and personable and will definitely find you the best deal."
                                                                                                                                       ~Louise Russ

"Honestly didn't think we could book something so quick- your services are very efficient and you tailored your search to exactly what we needed"
                                      ~Simran V

"Ruchika provided an excellent service. I wasn’t sure exactly where to go for a long weekend staycation in July, only specifying the English countryside, with walks nearby and easily accessible by public transport from London. Ruchika suggested a couple of areas and within 24 hours had provided me with details of 6 lovely hotels for each location, with helpful hotel descriptions, different price options, and links to the respective websites. She also offered to provide other options if none of them were suitable, but one of them was exactly what I was after. Ruchika promptly booked my chosen hotel and offered to make restaurant reservations. It was the quickest and easiest holiday booking I’ve ever made! I will definitely be using her services again and have already recommended her to friends."
                                      ~Melissa O

"Having provided Ruchika with some vague requirements for a long weekend away somewhere in the UK, she provided me with multiple options, many of which fit the bill perfectly! Ruchika was professional and very responsive, narrowing down what was a really open brief. Would highly recommend!"
