This morning we were well-rested and up bright and early, in fact before our alarm went off thanks to jetlag.
We had the hotels breakfast which was nothing to rave about the decent enough as it was included. We were then ready and waiting for our tour driver to collect us from the hotel reception at 8am sharp.
First stop on the tour …
Today was our day to relax, we had no tours booked and just needed time to chill out on the beach and be pampered (what Bali is known for).

We woke early and I wasnt in the best headspace. Way too much alcohol the night before meant that I was sick for at least 3hrs. I did my usual sitting in the shower to try and wash it all away; never works but its soothing and lulls me back to sleep no matter how **** I feel.

The staff here were very friendly, almost too much.
When we first checked in they had none of the standard rooms in twin share so we were upgraded however as the days went on we found that the sliding door was stiff and had fallen off its runners.
We didnt complain about it as we were hardly in the room anyway. It was a staff member who was giving us fresh towels that noticed the struggle and addressed it with the maintenance team. They came up and tried fixing it whithout distrubing us too much to then change our room for one two doors down. This was slightly annoying as we only had one more night there and weren't in the mood to pack everything up.
We then had issues with the keys and safe when we first moved into this replacement room.
As I said its not a major issue but the only complaint I could make.
