Ask the Staff to Organize a local activity at the residence with a local guide:
"A Day in the Life of a Balinese Farmer"
This offers the guest an opportunity to immerse themselves in the unique culture of Bali.
Start your day with a trek around the village with one of the local guides. Continue walking around the village on the outskirts of the residence and down the road towards Gata.
Ask if you can watch the woman make their offerings and learn about the spirituality of this culture. In Bali- every house, every building, has a temple or shrine that receives daily blessings. Small banana-leaf baskets with incense sticks and offerings are a common sight all over the island.
As you tour the village, you can see the way the villagers live. The personal touches your guide gives— they often show you their childhood games they played and talk about anecdotes as you walk among the houses—this all adds to the the experience.
After your stroll, return to Puri Naga Toya for lunch around the Pool and enjoy a something from our in-house dining menu. The meal helps enhance the experience! The flavours, setting and smells, however, are very authentic.
"Work in the fields"
Take a walk to the rice field with a local guide and watch the farmer while he works. Ask them to share with you what has taken place prior to your arrival—ask how the plant the rice and how they harvest it.
It really back-breaking stuff, and our laboriously slow. It’s a skill that can only really be appreciated once the task is attempted.
Don't forget to indulge in the delights of a Balinese massage during your stay— the conclusion to your experience.

Why the Owner Chose Payangan:
This is a 'sacred space', featured in many publications magazines and coffee table books due its uplifting atmosphere.

It is available to be rented complete with an English speaking Manager and staff to help you with your cleaning, cooking and laundry needs.
