Nusa Lembogan

Finally I have had to resign myself to the fact that today I can only squeeze in a massage and snorkel at most. As Western though patterns and chasing leaving my body, so does stress. I feel myself decompressing like a tension chamber that has become unaccustomed to it’s own internal pressure – in actual…

Moana Fish Eatery Canggu

I am unsure why I hadn’t got to visit this awesome little restaurant tucked away up Jl. Batu Bolong. Moana Fish Eatery has been around a while now. The menu is extensive – salads, sushimi, cooked fish and more. I have the grilled mahi mahi and it is delicious. Tender and cooked to perfection. The…

The Lawn

Reclining back, watching the last of another magic Balinese day, I giggle at the outlook of The Lawn. It is like a piece of Seminyak in Canggu. A little piece of glamour in the surf village.  I don’t mind it for a change but I know it wont’ become my local. I am still an…

Exotica Bali Hotel – the best villa in Canggu for value

My friend asked today ” Why don’t you have your own villa in Bali?” seeing as I travel there all the time and lately have been heading over monthly. I have looked into it, but while the ease of staying at a place such as Exotica Bali (Bed and Breakfast) is available I can’t justify…

Ubud is an eclectic arty town about an hours drive from Denpasar airport. It is well known for the art-yoga-vegetarian scene and definitely worth a stop over for a few nights to explore the local area. Sprinkled in and around Ubud are free flowing waterfalls, lush rain forests and sacred sights. Accommodation ranges from home…

Anhera Suite and Spa, Ubud

It was an interesting time to be in Ubud and Bali the end of July and start of August. It is a really busy time and the hotels I normally stay at were booked out. I booked this place based on facilities, proximity to town and rooms. And this is where I hold my Bali…

Cagar Budaya Gianyar, Bali

This amazing temple is about thirty minutes drive from Ubud. I didn’t know this temple existed until my latest visit to Bali (my 12th time in the last 3 years)! It is so worth the visit. The mere fact that the caved sanctuary was built  over 1000 years old makes this place a spiritual mecca.…
