It just hit me – the Bali fever and I’m not talking about the serious illness caused by a virus transmitted by the female A. aegypti mosquito. NO! I need to go back to Bali soon – we had the best weeks around Bali last year and can’t wait to go back.
Why visit Bali? The question should be: why not visit Bali? It’s the perfect destination for everyone. Resorts are fantastic, the beaches are full of places to relax or water sports to try out and the locals are incredibly warm and friendly. I initially knew that I wanted to stay somewhere close to the ocean first but Ubud immediately stole my heart. If I had one word to describe Ubud it would be lush – surrounded by rice paddies and jungle, it felt so green. Ubud is quirky, Bohemian and equally full of tourists and people trying to sell you something haha.
Where to stay? If you don’t mind being out of town I can highly recommend the Alila Ubud with one of the most Instagram-worthy infinity pools I have ever seen. And can’t even start with the food on this magical island – a little slice of culinary heaven and more importantly has something for everyone: carnivores, vegans, raw foodies and everything in between.
If you want to learn more about Balinese beauty secrets head to the Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa and Spa – spend a bit to much of my time here. You will pick your own ingredients and learn how to make a traditional Lulur before getting massaged outdoors. See you soon Bali x
