Where to start, this beautiful and tranquil landscape of a country was a joy to visit on my first vacation with my at the time Boyfriend, now Fiance! The first part was choosing hotel destination, this is not too tricky on an Island such as Bali, as there is a breathtaking view hotel on most parts of the island. We settled for Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa which was quite frankly a bargain being able to book a beach view villa for a steal at £600 for the 7 nights. The pick up from the airport service was spot on and the reception we received when arriving was so welcoming. The restaurant was a gorgeous setting with ocean panoramic views instagram was being hit hard as soon as I logged onto wifi! Like many resorts, the restaurant is where you eat Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner if you so wish, but there are an abundance of small restaurants with low price tags and equally spectacular view.
As mentioned the Villa was stunning and really made the stay for us being so close to the ocean and being its own stand alone villa with porch and sandy beach to enjoy!
The food on offer is very, very british friendly. A lot fried options, salads, fish, pizzas… not what I was expecting what so ever!!! My Fiance and I tried nearly every restaurant going when visiting, one of them turned out to be the most famous “proposal” spot and for NOW fiance but at the time Boyfriend… this was awkward!
Here is a snapshot of the delicious delights on our travels…
Following the sumptuous dinners and lunches we had many out and about trips, seeing the sights of all over the island getting many different views of what life is like there. Some breathtaking, some simply but beautiful, some idyllic, any way described equals the same, tranquil but with beauty.
“The roads felt rustic, but adventurous. No track was giving the same outcome, just different culture and beauty.”
One place I would recommend is the Ujung Water Palace its free entry, multiple elements of culture and not just a “walk in the park”. It offers outstanding architecture and is fantastic for a selfie shot at the top of the Palace!
Following from this we went onto the Royal Water Palace, similar thing but an actual swimming pool to bathe in with the local… Yes I know what you’re thinking, better for pictures than to participate in!
