2 weeks or rest and relaxation

good times with friends

sunny 26 °C

I am going to just have the one entry for this trip to Bali. This trip was with a group of friends which worked out for all of us. We did plenty of activities together as well as on our own and everything ran smoothly. First stop was Ubud. We stayed at the Cendana Resort on Monkey Forest Road. Excellent location and a great hotel for the price. Would stay here again. Plenty of good eating and drinking at the usual great bars and restaurants. Did an Electric Bike tour which was a lot of fun. Got to see a lot of the Ubud area with very little effort. Great way to get around. We did a great day trip to Tirta Empul temple and the Toya Devasya hot springs next to Mt Batur. We had a great time at both of these venues. Both a very different experience, however, both a lot of fun. As we had been to Ubud before a lot of our time was enjoying ourselves with good food, drink and spending time with our friends.
Next we moved onto Sanur which we had also been to before. Stayed at the Besakih Beach hotel. The location of this hotel is excellent, however, the hotel is a little rundown. This is not a big issue and we all enjoyed our stay here. Again good food, drink and spending time with friends was high on the agenda. We did do an ATV tour which was awesome. Zipping through the jungles on high speed ATVS was a big rush. We also went to Uluwatu Temple and watched the Kecak dancers. This was an excellent experience and would recommend it to anyone visiting Bali. We also did the Jimbaran seafood dinner thing. This was a big let down. Nice location on the beach, however, the seafood was very average and the prices are over the top. Avoid. We found a great little seafood place on Sanur beach for next to nothing which we visited twice and was so much better than Jimbaran.
Bali always delivers on the holiday front and this was no different.

Bali visit with friends


Gearing up for our now annual trip to Bali. Third year in a row. This time we are going with friends. Ubud first with another couple then onto Sanur where another couple will join us to make it an awesome 6. Will be a new experience as we don't normally travel with others, however, we feel that Bali is a great place for a group and we have all been there before. We arrive in Bali on 7th September and leave on 21st. 6 days in Ubud then the rest in Sanur. We have planned a few different activities which should make this a great experience. Bring it on!
