Trip Report 4 days in Bali

Jump to last reply

I and my wife travelled to Bali Feb 2013 for 5 days and had one of our best holidays there. Spent 3 days in Bali Asri near Seminyak and 2 days at Alila in Uluwatu. Both were amazing places.

Bali Asri are private villas with a pool and butler service. Very close to the beach and very hospitable staff. The villa was very well kept and the openness of the villa was something we both enjoyed. Private massages, private chef and unlimited sun all for under USD 250 a night. It is close to big resorts of Seminyak, we went to the W hotel for drinks one night and stopped by the Potato Head the other night, which is worth a visit.

Kuta beach and the memorial are a close taxi ride away. We ttopped at the Hard Rock to get a Bali shot glass and had a local drink at a really small shady bar, which turned out to be really not too bad. We then moved to the soothern part of Bali to Uluwatu.

We were booked at the Alila which is a resort par excellence. It is by far the best resort i've stayed at boasting unobstructed views of the Indian ocean, infinity pool and a main cabana which seems to hang off the cliff. Rooms are spread over a huge area and can be accessed only with golf cart kind of buggies, which are operated 24/7 by the staff. The restaurants are excellent, service beyond expectations and the room was more than what we had asked for. We had a private pool, private cabana and 3 bathing areas; all private but still open to the sky and the surroundings.

It was hard leaving the resort but we did do a half day trip to the temple on the cliff and had dinner at a seafood restaurant at Jimbaran bay, all recommended and arranged by the concierge of Alila.

I would definitely go back to Bali given a chance. The people are very welcoming and humble and make you feel at ease. We couldn't visit Ubud and some other places that we wanted to but hope to some time soon.
