Sorting out albums and choosing which ones to upload is probably one of the hardest things about blogging. It was only 'til last week that I was able to organize my Bali photos - 2,721 to be exact.
"So where do I start?" The question that I have been asking myself for hours already. There's just too much to share about that 3-week vacation, which I have to say was beyond what I had expected. I knew Bali was going to be great but I was completely blown away with everything. From the villas & hotels, to the quaint little places, to the artsy shops & markets and to the amazing (and affordable) food!
Since I have already been getting questions with where to stay, maybe it's better to start the with hotels instead. Our first nights were spent in Seminyak, then Kuta and then Ubud. We had 5 hotels in total but today's post will be highlighting Seminyak Lagoon Suites, a semi-private hotel that is tucked in the quiet area of Seminyak.
Christine, a close friend of mine who I traveled to Bali with, just wouldn't stop talking about how great it would be to bring her special someone there! I couldn't agree more. The hotel had this romantic feel which I believe every couple out there would love to experience! Perhaps get a glass or two of wine, stay in the deck and swim anytime you want to. But don't get me wrong, it's also great for those friends / family who prefer a little break from the hustle of Bali but still be minutes away from the scene. Unlike the other hotels we stayed in that are situated in the middle of busy streets, Seminyak Lagoon Suites was the opposite - it had this exclusive feel inside and outside.
The bed facing the pool. Imagine waking up to this every single day! Boy was it hard to leave.
Room was nicely Interiored
our deck which also served not only as a chill spot but also an office area
Balinese coffee, local fruits, fresh juice - the staples in our daily breakfast.
Hard to be always serious inferno of the cam! #bloopers
For around 2,400 pesos a night (around $50) we were able to get the lagoon suite room that had direct access to the pool. There was also a kitchen and mini living area, perfect for those who prefer making their own food. Such a steal for everything it included right? Wait! Did I mention breakfast buffet too? Yes. And the fruits were amazing!
We loved it so much here that for a day, Christine & I decided to stay in and forget about our "To-go" list. I wouldn't say it was time wasted in our itinerary 'cause it sure was worth it - an entire afternoon and evening just spent at the pool tanning, reading a book and appreciating everything about this hotel.
For the next posts, I will be sharing to you 2 other hotels we stayed at. Also I am currently working on a Bali guide which I can't wait to share to you guys!
