Follow in the Footsteps of Julia Roberts on "Eat, Pray, and Love Bali" Tour: 
Oscar Winner to Star in Movie Based on Bestselling Book

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - Soon moviegoers will be 
chanting their way to theaters to see the film adaptation of Elizabeth 
Gilbert's bestselling book, "Eat, Pray, Love," starring Julia Roberts. Spirit 
Quest Tours is now giving fans the opportunity to experience this big-screen 
journey for themselves on a spiritual vacation. The first-ever "Eat, Pray, and 
Love Bali" spiritual tour is providing a small group of travelers the ability 
to follow in the footsteps of America's Sweetheart embarking on the journey 
that has captivated the curious and inspired the faithful throughout the world. 

Spirit Quest Tours has created a respite full of eating, praying and loving. 
The "eat" part features both Italian and Balinese food. "Bali food is so 
wonderful," Spirit Quest Tours' founder Greg Roach said. Praying is 
incorporated as an integral part of the tour. "We're teaching how Balinese 
Hindus pray, plus meditation and yoga." Participants will meet the authentic 
Shaman in the book, Ketut Liyer. 

When it comes to Love, never doubt the power of numbers when one sees the Kecak 
dance. This popular Balinese dance requires 100 shirtless men in sarongs 
simulating fire and wind while chanting simultaneously with one huge voice. The 
mood during the Kecak dance is hot, literally, as some include the man playing 
Hanuman, the monkey god, dancing over fire. 

In Ubud, the artistic center of Bali, guests stay at the Alila Hotel, featuring 
a stunning infinity pool overlooking the rice paddies, in an eco-friendly room 
with a private outdoor shower and even an iPod and dock. Spirit Quest Tours' 
guests will visit local temples, including the famous Taneh Lot, and enjoy spa 
treatments, shopping with local artisans, a torch-lit dinner on the beach, and 
a farewell dinner with Balinese dances such as the Kecak. 

Eat Pray & Love Bali is set for May 2010, hosting only thirty-five lucky 
spiritual travelers. Tour goers will want to book fast before you miss your 
chants! Spots are $2,995 (early-bird discount of $400 through Dec. 1) and 
travelers will depart from either LA or NY. Contact Spirit Quest Tours at 
877-406-5206 or via the web at: for details. ... 85837.html
