Just outside the palace grounds, the views of the lush rice paddies of northeastern Bali are stunning.

This stop is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of towns and temple visits. The grounds are beautiful and the water gardens worth the stop. Bring clothes to get into the pools as it is allowed. Wear your clothes in as the Balinese do then use their shower and changing room afterwards. Huge carp in the fountain pools... More

These gardens are such a nice place to experience some classic Bali. It was such fun walking on the water pathway feeding the fish and taking photos in the gardens. The property is not huge and although we did enjoy a swim it was only an hour or so to see it all.

Cool and refreshing air, surrounded with artistic statues and water fountain, with a clear and full of living water pool. There's nothing better. There are so much fishes, as big as my thighs. Its really beautiful, a nice escape from city business.

We have been disappointed with some 'attractions' in Bali but not this one. These water gardens are really beautiful and well worth a visit - even thought they are quite recent. The setting and views are terrific. Sparkling clean water and plenty of wonderful fish too. Bonus of a restaurant with a view and no touts. Small entry fee, guides... More

A lovely pleasant water garden with huge fishes. There are 2 cold spring pools and they provide tubes for the bigger one as it is deeper. There is also a giant lily/king lotus leaf pond in addition to the normal one.

An unexpected pleasure on our trip out to Tulamben. We spent around half an hour there and wondered where the time went. The steppingstone pool with the fish is great fun and just wandering around the area was fantastic. If you get time, pay the 10,000 rupiah to go for a swim in the pool. Well worth the stop off.
