A QUICK TRIP TO BALI

UBUD

I have never spent more than a day in Ubud so I was excited to spend the night and a couple of days exploring.

We stayed at the most incredible eco-friendly resort, Bambu Indah. Nestled in nature, surrounded by the beautiful Sayan Ridge, Bambu Indah overlooks the rice paddy fields and the Ayung River.  The staff were so accomodating - nothing is too much trouble. Our room had its very own private pool with an outdoor shower and bath tub.

We stumbled across this cute bamboo tree house which you can relax in, have an afternoon nap or read a book.

Organic produce from the gardens at Bambu are harvested daily to provide you with delicious, healthy and fresh food at their restaurant.

Our first night we had the most delicious dinner at  just a 5 minute drive from our resort. The food is fresh traditional Indonesian food and the 4.5/5 star rating does not disappoint. 

TEGALALANG RICE TERRACE

The beautiful untouched Tegalalang Rice Terrace is a must see. As you can see the picturesque surroundings will have you feeling like you are in a movie set from Eat Pray Love.  Take a break from walking about the rice fields and have a swing on one of the many swings around the fields...don't pay more than $100,000 rupiah.
