Here are three morsels—from new accommodations to biking adventures in Bali—you’ll want to savor over the weekend.

Hill Climb Bike Challenge at COMO Shambhala Estate, Bali
Guests of COMO Shambhala Estate looking for adventure and a great workout can sign up for the Hill Climb Bake Challenge. The challenge starts up hill towards Kintamani, a village on the western edge of Gunang Batur, and finishes with a downhill ride back to the estate. There are multiple routes to choose from including a 24-mile ride, which takes guests on the subak lane trail. The subak trail includes visits to some of the area’s most beautiful rice terraces and small traditional villages, dotted with craft studios and cafes. The excursion includes an estate guide, water, bike helmet, and gloves.

Couples seeking a playful way to immerse themselves in crush season can book the Crush with Your Crush package. Available exclusively for the resort’s cozy cottages, tucked away within the property’s lush grounds, couples can revel in each other’s company while enjoying all things wine.
