Mummy is Busy April 7, 2006

Posted by Zara's Mama in misc.

These few days have been busy with some issues at work, and then all my spare time I’d spent on looking for cheap deals suitable hotels in Bali (on the net) for our upcoming holiday.

Will not be updating my blog until the above 2 are settled.

I’d been to Bali twice, once a company trip and the other joining a tour, and everything had been organised so I didn’t have to plan for anything. This time, we are going on our own, and it’s Zara’s first trip overseas so I’ll have to plan well. If you have recently been to Bali and have some hotels, restaurants or locations to recommend for a visit, please drop me a comment.

Hope blogging will resume next week.

Do share abit more on the sourcing part too! ๐Ÿ™‚

definitely Ubud for all its culture, carvings and handicraft!! went there too on a company trip a few years ago. there’s this spa (I forgot which) that required us to strip down to just bare skin. it was quite… errr… an experience.

like michelle’s comment, we stayed at Melia as well. but it’s a little far from Ubud, so you would have to hitch a pretty long ride.

9. sambal-belacan - April 7, 2006

everyone i know is going to bali! i’ll be there too, on good fri weekend. am staying in ubud.

depends on ur preference for location and budget:
kuta – fun and parties but i personally don’t like it. not relaxing. nusa dua/jimbaran – luxury beach resorts. seminyak – quaint, lots of cafes and lil stores. has lots of villas. i stayed there once – loved it. ubud – art and culture, mountains, padi fields. very far from airport tho.

if u want a villa accomodation, which is great if u have a kid, check out
u can pick by location and price range. i used it myself to search but got a friend to book my villa in the end because she had special rates.

My recommendation is to stay up at Ubud. Ubud has a good mix of everything and I feel it’s better for a family with a small toddler. I hope it hasn’t changed that much because it’s been quite a while since I’ve been there.

Accomodations wise, I can’t recommend cos last time I did the trip on a shoestring. But you should be able to find something nice with the upmarket hotels.

So exciting!

11. sambal-belacan - April 7, 2006

ohhh…forgot to mention that u should check out (depends on where u stay in the end):
Ku De Ta – in Seminyak. Nice bar/restaurant, sea front. You can have drinks whilst watching the sunset

Bebek Bengil – in Ubud. This is supposedly the famous Bali duck dish

Kafe Warisan – in Kerobokan. French.

12. Simple American - April 7, 2006

Oooh! That’ll give ya some good blogging material. Will stay out of the way then.

13. TWO LITTLE FELLAS - April 7, 2006
