I stayed here for a week and the resort is very beautiful. Lovely villas, multiple swimming pools and bales to relax in, good food, day spa and a daily shuttle service. My only complaint is that they moved me from one villa to another in the middle of my stay without consultation - they need to manage their bookings a little better!
The staff were the best part of my visit. Gede, the head barman, makes some wicked cocktails and is very entertaining. Rum drove me wherever I wanted to go and was a source of a lot of information. Ketut was also very helpful, organising tours and advising me on places to try local cuisine.
Because it's not owned by locals, I'm not sure that I'd stay there again. It's a civil rights issue for me, more than the quality of my stay. But I would definitely like to see my new friends again, so maybe...

... to cator to a full resturant. But there was a bit more going on than that...no worries lots of fun to have everyone together.
It was so nice to have Dylan and Rachel join us along with Nat's and Ed for the 3 days.
The 2nd day we went into the small town for some trinket shopping and lunch (again). Then Dylan and Rachel rented a scooter and went on an Island tour of cliff jumping etc.

... so I hopped on the back of Chris's. There was just one busy town which was tricky to navigate, the rest the roads were fairly quiet, driving through small villages. We noticed a lot of poverty with lots of rubbish piled high in ravines and in the streets and random fires all over the place. It was a coastal road that we drove along though and for much of the journey it was the sea to one side, mountains to the other. After a couple of hours drive we made ...
... none of them. One seems to organically roll into another. Referring and intermingling into a beautiful melting pot of literature and photography. They are, in no particular order:
* Vagabonding - Rolf Potts
* Walden - Henry David Thoreau
* The Power of Habit - Charles Duhigo
* The New Gypsies - Iain McKell
There's a definite theme there, I know. And it was Vagabonding that made me want to read Walden again. But who doesn't want to read Walden ...
... we just wanted them to go away. The Americans did nothing to help whilst they were chatting over excitedly about what shares they had in which hotels across Indonesia and how luxurious their pool was and oh how well groomed the 1billion acre garden was. All things that no one else wants to hear but can't avoid when they don't know the difference between shouting and talking. On the boat we nabbed ultimate sunbathing positions on top of the roof to utilise the one hour journey ...
The stomach was growling for grease the second I woke up from booze coma. As usual I was up and about (albeit Ozzie Osbourne like) at 9am, mainly just to re-check into the hotel for one more night! We headed off to Gracie Kelly's, Bali's number one Irish bar at about noon for some home comfort food to smoothen out the hangover- the Bangers and Mash was unreal... I'll probably sneak back here again before I go! The bar was located inside a five star ...
