Surf Haven Bali
Travel Blogs from Seminyak
Bali Bali Bali, oh where to begin...Well we arrived at the airport to utter madness and noise from taxi drivers trying to get custom! After many taxi drivers had offered us their services, we finally got a driver who said it would cost us 200,000RP (£10) to get to our hotel..We thought we was getting a good deal until we arrived at the hotel …
Our last full day in Bali so we had lots we wanted to do. Mia prepared us our breakfast which was yummy as usual. Then we got ourselves organized and hopped into a taxi down to Seminyak Square. When we'd been to the markets at Orberoi Road the other day both Sharon and Ruth had seen items there which they wanted to go back and get. So we got some money changed at the the place in the square then walked down to the markets.
They both managed to get ...
We landed in Denpasar and finally made it to our hotel in Kuta 3hrs later thanks to a horrible airport and traffic. We chucked our bags in the room and headed for dinner. Kuta is a beach side city in Bali that is basically just a ****-up for 18yr old sun burnt Aussies wearing Bintang beer tank tops and the cougars that are after them, not that nice. We came here for one reason.....
In the morning we woke up and headed to WaterBom! A water slide park, it's not a true holiday ...
... nibbling fish again (see last trip when we did the Garry Rufa nibbling fish). Once again, the fish dated Straight for my forty something scaly flesh leaving Lilli with a few toddlers. Once my fish were done, they were so bloated that the faster ones died and floated to the surface in the manner of dead goldfish (actually, I made that bit up to add interest).
Lilli went on the euro bungy twice and matters ...
... had to wear a sarong, pay a donation and walk around inside. It's easy to believe that these temples are thousands of years old and miraculously preserved, when it reality it's not the preservation that's important but the maintenance.
It took me some time to realize that keeping the temple in it's original state with original bricks and mortar was not the goal. The goal was to keep the same place of worship functioning as it was still being used. So the stones ...

This hotel was set in a quiet area surrounded by rice fields, cows and quiet little streets.
Premier Surf Camp was very close to Canggu & Echo beach but unfortunately due to high tides we were unable to surf on any of our 3 days :(
This worked out quite well as Aaron had picked up a bad tummy bug and wouldn't of been able to surf anyway.
We originally booked a bungalow but moved to a deluxe as the bungalow shower didn't work and had no tv. Aaron also said due to being ill he didn't fancy staring at a cracked wall in bed.
The staff there were very polite, tasty breakfast and we also made a few friends with other guests that were staying at the resort.
We hired a scooter for 2 of the days to take us from place to place as it was too hot and far for walking to places such as the temple, bars, restaurants, massage and yoga resort- All of which we done.
We would stay again :)
