Extraordinary...a delightful balance of feeling like Robinson Crusoe and a pampered princess. We spent 1 week at Kayumanis and are already looking forward to returning later this year. The villa is spacious, tastefully furnished in Balinese style - we adored the outdoor bath and shower. The staff is incredibly friendly - by far, the most gracious team we've met in Asia. The onsite spa is fantastic - a very private bungalow with a variety of options on the menu. We ate regularly at the restaurant onsite (and can highly recommend the Bali Duo for dinner - so good I had it two nights in a row). Make it a point to splurge on one of the romantic, in-villa dining experiences...swimming in your private pool filled with flowers under the stars is a once in a lifetime must-do.

... it is just another sunrise but every time I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the mountains and looking down at the setting which is over a lake and lots of agricultural land. Simply stunning. You can feel that some of the rocks are warm and a even a few steam holes where you realise that you are in fact stood on a volcano and start to worry a little. There is a cave which isn't very safe and inside there is a temple which the Hindus go to especially ...
... clearly too hot for that sort of behaviour and preferred to show off their 'endowment' to all and sundry.
It was an excellent morning, but when I left all I could think about was getting back to the hotel, having a shower and then a dip in the pool. Which I promptly did. This was Heaven on Earth. The morning had been great and so it was only natural that the afternoon would be a little disappointing. Well, it was more ...
... pedang pedang beach and visiting the temple on top of 70 metre cliffs.
The uluwatu area is spread out and you would need transport to get around, we were told to keep the taxi waiting for the day as it is hard to get. If I stayed here i would hire a motorbike.
... monkey cage and having the door slammed. Luckily the monkeys are well fed by a team of monkey wranglers, as they have a somewhat impressive set of gnashers. To complete the tourist circuit, Lynne insisted we all troop miles to a simply unmissable restaurant which Rick Stein thought was simply scrumptious. I think Rick was having an off day because the suckling pig was overspiced, under-portioned and overrated (sorry Rick).

From Kuta we set off on our awesome bike up to Ubud. The drive would take us roughly 2-3 hours. The drive was nice as we got to head through the busy city of Denpasar and then through all the small towns and villages on our way into the middle of Bali. There were a few times where we came across Police and at one point I noticed one waving us down! I was having none of it and just ignored the guy ...
