A Journey Through Nature To Mimpi Tuamben's Luxury Location
This Mimpi resort is situated in the small village of Tulamben, on the north-side foot of Bali’s sacred Mount Agung. The region belongs to Northeast Bali, locally called Karangasem, which covers most of Bali’s east coast with its capital city Amlapura.
The ride from Bali’s international airport is approximately 2 hours, through Bali’s newest highway of Tohpati – Kusamba. There are several famous shopping spots on the way, along Bali’s historic city of Semarapura.
Considered as the former capital city of Bali’s old kingdom, it's home to the famous historic site of Kertagosa, an old justice court with uniquely-painted ceiling. After Semarapura, the ride will also pass Candidasa, a tourist village on the beach with hotels and restaurants. Bali’s ancient village of Tenganan is located just a short journey from Candidasa.
The next important spot after Candidasa is Amlapura, the capital city of East Bali, locally called Karangasem. Soon after leaving that city, the journey passes Tirtagangga, an old royal water palace built in 1940’s by East Bali’s last reigning king.
The village of Tulamben is located approximately 20 minutes after Tirtagangga. The resort is located right on the village bay next to a local temple called Pura Batu Kelebit. A resort sign is set by the main road to guide you to its entrance.
There is certainly another option available through the region of Kintamani heading to Tejakula but the above rout is most recommended as it is the shortest and most convenient.
