Lovely pool, great breakfast and friendly staff. Little bit out of the way for Kuta, on a big main road that is hard to cross any time of the day. Taxis are cheap and hotel staff can help with transport. Limited veggie options on the main menu and not many other places to eat near by except a 24 hour mini-mart and a seafood and grill place.

... day. Paying the extra 50,000rp for a meal made a huge difference in quality for our experience on this island. The following day Breanne and I rented some bikes for 30,000rp each and snorkel fins and masks for another 30,000rp each. Biking around made transport much more enjoyable as you would get to where you wanted faster, but also to avoid being confronted by shop owners. Biking around the island was pretty cool as we seen the west side which was less busy. Stopping at a ...
... a bit more to check things out. We headed back to the hotel, grabbed some dinner and relaxed (out of the insane heat/humidity) for the rest of the night.
The next day was a write-off as I woke up to some bad news from home and took a personal day. I was also starting to feel my usual effects of travelling and was developing a bit of a cold. We stayed in for the day and would get back at sightseeing the next ...
... of zened out bliss. Earlier Zeal and I had the joy of experiencing their cleansing Ayurvedic full body massages. The owner of the Al Isha gave us a survey to determine our doshas, our body/personality/health type, and then created a custom tailored massage specifically for our needs. It turns out Zeal is a Pita/Kapa dosha and I'm a Vata/Pita. You learn something new every day :) ...
