The three-night package includes accommodations, a guided tour of Jimbaran's famous markets, a professional cooking lesson at Rimba's Scenography Cooking School, authentic Balinese dining experiences and a traditional Kecak dance performance.

Guests will then return to the hotel, where they will learn to prepare authentic Balinese dishes using the island's exotic produce at Rimba's professional Scenography Cooking School.
The package also includes a dining experience at Kampoeng Bali, Ayana's restaurant, with a buffet of traditional options typically enjoyed by Balinese royalty. The evening will conclude with a Sunset Ritual, followed by a Kecak performance, a form of Balinese dance and music developed in the 1930s.
Guests also receive daily breakfast at Padi or To'ge Restaurant for guests staying at Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali or Rimba Jimbaran Bali by Ayana, and at Dava Restaurant for guests staying at The Villas at Ayana.
