It’s almost safe to say that 90% of Australians have been to Bali, Indonesia. In my case however, it took like forever before I finally got around to flying there. I was a Bali virgin for the longest time and it was a running joke among friends how I’ve been everywhere, except well, Bali. So while en route to Jakarta one time, I decided that a stopover in Bali should be in place, once and for all.
My friends and I stayed at the InterContinental Bali Resort in Jimbaran. The hotel boasts an infinity pool that faces the beach and you get a spectacular sunset view. Which also means you get natural lighting from the sun for that no-filter-postcard-perfect-profile-picture you’ll be showing off to everyone. Lol 🙂
Happy hour starts early 🙂 I’m not sure if I had Bintang beer but alcohol is fairly cheap. I have to say though that I didn’t see any sign where it says “Don’t drink and swim”, but repeat after moi: “Don’t drink and swim!”
The view from the hotel terrace. I really love these white tables and chairs!
Now a trip to Bali is not complete without experiencing a Balinese massage. Massages range from as little as AUD$7. I kinda went overboard and did a 3 hour massage/spa downtown but after 2 hours, I was bored already.
I also love traditional Indonesian food. Kinda reminds me of Filipino food, just spicier but I love spicy food so win-win. Anyway, just a few blocks from the hotel are numerous restaurants on the beach that you can choose from.
Bali sunset. No filter required. Amazeball.
Until next time, Terima kasih
