Secret Garden Village, Bali

Bali is one of my favorite tourist destinations. Anytime I come to Bali, there is always a new spot to explore, either cafe, restaurant, theme park or just a cozy place to hang out with friends. Secret Garden Village is not only a cafe, a restaurant, theme park or a breathtaking landscape to unwind at. This place also promotes educational tourism. There is a beauty heritage museum in this complex where you can learn in short presentation about the history and journey of Oemah Herborist, one of Indonesian beauty product. They also offer you a short course (requires one day reservation in advance) how to make natural cosmetic products, such as a soap. These are some soaps that you can purchase at Herborist beauty factory outlet in the corner of this complex.

Other educational tour they offer is about coffee. At their open concept lay-out coffee shop, the Black Eye Coffee & Roastery, you can learn about coffee roasting & brewing process and how to prepare good coffee like a barista :). This coffee shop serves many variety of Indonesian coffee, such as Lampung, Toraja, Aceh, Java, etc.
