This unique experience is not only interesting but also an alternative to land pick-up. If by land, the trip will last for approximately 90 minutes and will increase if there is a traffic jam along Jimbaran to Ubud.

By sailing on the Ayung River, guests can shorten their journey time to 60 minutes. In addition to being free from traffic jams, guests can also enjoy a panoramic view of the forest along the river while guests' belongings are still delivered by car. During rafting guests will be guided by professional rafting experts.

Previously, Four Seasons Resort Sayan has also served guests through a bridge that hangs between the trees while enjoying the view of the lush forest. Many guests stopped as they crossed the bridge, full of wonder and awe, listening to the 'symphony' of the forest and trees.
