We re­port on the stun­ning wine din­ner at Basque – Bar de Tapas that saw in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed wine­maker Mar­qués de Ris­cal and In­done­sia's culi­nary su­per­star chef Man­dif Warokka join tal­ents. We check out the stun­ning new ocean-go­ing Ras­cal, a lux­u­ri­ous way to tour In­done­sia's wa­ters; and ex­plore the fun pas­times of­fered by Padma Re­sort Ubud, from jun­gle trekking to cook­ing with Chef Ke­tut Sumerta, Ba­li­nese lan­guage lessons and pri­vate yoga ses­sions.
