If you are planning a day trip then perhaps consider a drive up to the Bukit ( near Uluwatu ) to spend the day at Finn’s Beach Club. Entrance is via the Semara Luxury Villa’s and it is $25 USD per adult ( kids under 12 free) which is redeemable for food and drinks. You can enjoy the sun lounges and a swim for the day. There are many stairs to go down and you have a ride in the inclinator which was my favourite part. This place is not cheap , however it is beautiful , plan to get there around 9 to ensure a lounge, it can get busy on the weekends. You can actually walk along the beach to the Nammos Beach Club. I personally prefer Finn’s xxx.
This Villa is one of my favourites, it is new, beautifully furnished, a great size and an awesome price. Located in Gang Daksini in Batu Belig, it is close to some new great places including Watercress, Slippery Stone, Naughty Nuris, Think Pink Nail Salon and just a short drive from Bungalow Living in Berawa or the Petitenget area. They have 2 or 3 bedroom villas, a decent size pool and luxurious baths. I think you will be really surprised at the price too. For more details email Justin and Emily http://balisoulvillas.com/
I have heard of people recently booking a villa and only to pay a deposit and the find out the Villa does not actually exist. To avoid this and help you identify the perfect villa for your family or holidays needs, book via these very reputable agencies. They have some magnificent Villas on their books and you will get the best rates and treatment if you mention Little Miss Bali with your inquiry.
I was just scooting along, minding my own business when I found this little oasis of tranquility. Warung Hotei is the cutest little vietnamese/ thai fusion place, with fast wifi and great food. You can sit in the garden out the back or in the restaurant and enjoy the breeze. Head on in there soon, its on Jl. Umalas 1 Kerobokan, Just behind Sardine.
