Travel – Bali Hotel and Resort Hopping
It was a debate between Maldives or Bali. Maldives sure sounds great, but travelling on ground in Bali seems a lot easier than travelling by boat or seaplane in Maldives. We were wrong. Attractions in Bali were spread far apart and transportation may easily take up to hours. After visiting a few, we decided that resort hopping was going to be the part we enjoy the most.
W Hotel, Seminyak
Our room at the W Hotel had a great seaside view, the sound of the Indian Ocean and its big waves were really calming. A little stargazing through the skylight in the shower relaxed us before heading down to try their Starfish Bloo, which we did not find too impressive. Walk south along the beach and we hit the Potato Head Beach Club, a popular lounge in Bali that served amazing drinks. Try the Prohibition Iced Tea, a citrus twist on the traditional long island iced tea, prepared with dry ice.
Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran
Le Meridien‘s 1,300 sq. m saltwater lagoon pool encircles a huge side of the resort. Swimming was enjoyable especially with one of their tropical concoctions or gelato in hand. Lagoon Rooms feature direct access to the pool.
Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort
Sofitel pool bar’s mixologist served amazing customized drinks. Le Bar overlooks the resort and features fire dance performances at night. Its stunning beach side connects to a row of 5-star hotels & resorts. Try having a drink at each of the resorts along the beach and see who lasts longer. So Spa was a great call after a long day at the beach.
Four Seasons Resort Bali
Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay’s Sundara restaurant had indoor-outdoor tables facing the ocean. Try their delectable sushi with one of their cocktail creations. Wasabi Martini was a little bit too challenging for me. Pineapple Carpaccio served with rosemary ice cream and crushed pink peppercorns tasted as confusing as it sounds but we loved it.
