Bali. A place I never thought I’d go, but quickly fell in love with. A plethora of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops await.
Sun Island Villas and Spa is located in the region of Seminyak which is quite central to all the main regions of Bali. Sun Island is a 4 star resort located on one of the main roads, though you wouldn’t know that when you are inside the tranquil resort. With villas surrounding the main pool, you will feel like you are in your own little oasis. Try the deluxe pool villa room for a one bedroom with separate kitchen and dining area space. For a cheaper rate on your room, be sure to check expedia or agoda prior to booking.
Choose wisely, or you may be faced with the dreaded ‘bali belly’. With many Westerners moving over to Bali, there are plenty of options for good food and most offer local cuisine on the menu as well.
IV cocktails, syringe shots (say that fast!), delicious food, a cabaret show and dinner with zombies and you have yourself a fun (and scary!) night out. Frankensteins is unlike any other restaurant i have been to and I commend the owner for coming up with a concept that caters to people of all ages. A seriously fun night out topped off by the fantastic cabaret show, this place is not to be missed if you don’t mind a scare.
Hands down the best place for breakfast, high tea and coffee in Bali. The only problem is everyone else knows it too, so book ahead to avoid the disappointment of missing out on a table. Biku offers a range of dishes made with organic foods and condiments, leaving you feeling refreshed and full ahead of your day of exploring. Don’t forget your wheatgrass shot, for the many benefits as described by the menu. There are so many things to choose from on the menu, but my personal favourite is the Ricotta pancakes with the side of coconut syrup. Delicious!
Finn’s Beach club located in Uluwatu is a hidden oasis not to be missed. After being greeted with a stunning view as you walk through the grounds of the 5 star resort, The Semara, Finn’s is then accessed by an inclinator that will take you down the rock face. Start with lunch in the air bamboo structure and then snag yourself a beanbag under an umbrella for a relaxing afternoon. If you are feeling adventurous, there are paddle boards, kayaks and snorkels available.
Ubud has a lot to look at in the way of amazing, lush scenery. Visit a rice field to begin your day and follow it up with a walk through the town through the many market stalls or shops that are around. There are plenty of cafes to choose from if a bite to eat is what you are after.
Bali has a lot to offer, with endless choices of places to eat, drink and explore. The choice of an adventure filled holiday or relaxing holiday is entirely yours.
