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
So this would be my last post from Canggu and Bali. I found so many restaurants and cafées that I have been writing about but one of the best is definitely The Shady Shack. With a menu packed with healthy options there is zero guilt when its comes to your satisfaction hehe. From an assortment of breakfast bowels to healthy and hearty salads and do not miss the halloumi-burger xx
and you can find more than food here 😉
Pachamama Organic is a relaxed & cosy eatery offering fresh, delicious & healthy vegetarian, vegan and omnivore options in the backstreets of Gili Air. One of the only ”bowl-places” haha and my favorite restaurant on the island. Do not miss it or the dive-center they have next to the cafe´xx
Vegan, organic and local-produced.
Our favorite aubergine-sallad
cookies and cream smoothie
Market in Ubud, check into a fix star hotell, go to the spa, eat balinese food, see the monkey-forest and of course drink one or five coconuts xx
One of my favorite breakfast spots in Bali is definitely Peloton. This is how they describes the place – Artists, scientists, food engineers, craftsmen, healers & lovers are all welcome here. Peloton is about that full life. Perfect for me since I’m something between a healer and engineer hehe 😉 Of course we tried their smoothie-bowl with strawberries and banana yuuuuuum xx
LA LAGUNA, located in Jalan Pantai Kayu Putih, Berawa – Canggu is a quirky, cool new venue that will wow most travellers. With a great menu and delicious cocktails, you can’t go wrong with a visit to La Laguna. Works both day and night. MY AMAZING friends brought my here for late birthday celebrations. We ate tapas so lots of cheese, potatas bravas etc.
Started dinner w/ ginger-martinis
And then some Australian red-wine.
Flowers everywhere <3
MY LADIES <3
THE POTATAS-BRAVAS WAS 10/10
The staff were amazing/fantastic and just perfecto.
Can not describe in words how happy I was after this. I have the most wonderful friends and do not miss La Laguna if you’re around xx
Potato Head Beach Club is one of the most beautiful happening chill-out venues in Seminyak according to most ppl. Not my favorite beach-club but worth a visit. We ate some lunch and drank funny cocktails xx
Guacamole is always a good idea 😉
some nachos for my sauce thanks haha
We did EVERYTHING on our trip to Bali so I’ll never have time to tell and write about everything. I know I probably have the best list covering almost all restaurants you should NOT miss in Bali. One of them is Betelnut Cafe in Canggu. Not my favorite but definitely wort a visit. They have almost everything I love – bowl’s, shots and strong coffee x
Always start you day with shots 😉 today it was ginger and turmeric
Not a good morning without a bowl.
and Kombucha of course.
Banana and mango for me.
