Vacation to Bali
- 3 Dec 2014
Recently I took a family vacation to Bali, magical Bali. I have travelled to Bali many times since I was 16 years old and every time I return I'm still swept away buy its beauty and charm. I have done the backpacker thing which pretty much meant sleeping on the beach, I have done it the cheap way paying 800 rupee per night for some tiny dirty room down a back alley in Kuta but this trip I splurged and booked through The Luxe Nomad and gave myself and my family a real treat.
最近跟家人一起到巴里旅行，迷人的巴里。16 歲到現在，已到過幾次巴里旅行，每一次，都深深為它的美麗和魅力醉倒。我會做一些背囊友做的事情，可能是在沙灘睡覺，入住一些便宜的旅房，每晚 800 盧比，又細又污糟，就在 Kuta 的後巷位置。但是，今次我卻玩豪一些，入住 The LuxeNormad ，讓自己和家人都可以享受舒適好玩的旅程。
First stop was Ubud.
My mother actually booked the hotel in Ubud,it was called Ananda Cottage Hotel and it was lovely and very affordable. The hotel was nestled amongst the rice fields with the swimming pool looking directly over them. At sunset it was divine to have a dip in the pool and watch as the sky and sun cast a rainbow of ever changing colors over the fields.
媽媽預訂了 Ubud 的 Ananda Cottage Hotel ，此處怡人，而且非常抵住。酒店坐落在稻田之間，從泳池望出去就可以飽覽稻田優美風景。日落時分，游一會兒水是絕美的享受，望著天空，日落的餘輝在稻田間投射出幻變的彩虹色彩。
While in Ubud I tried almost every Raw Food restaurant there. My favorite one being Sari Organiks. The place has many mixed reviews online but our experience there was delightful. The staff were more then happy to snuggle India while we enjoyed our vegetarian Nasi Cumper and green juice.
在 Ubud 期間，我幾乎試過所有 Raw Food 餐廳，至愛的是 Sari Organiks 。在網上有很多關於餐廳不同的食評，而我的經驗是開心愉快的。餐廳員工都十分熱情地湊向 India ，而我們亦一邊品嚐素吃 NasiCumper 和青菜汁。
Another top attraction was the Holly Water Temple; although very touristy the place had a calm and beauty that I can’t explain.
另一著名景點是 Holly Water Temple ；雖然是旅遊熱點，卻依然保持住一份難以形容的寧謐和雅緻。
After Ubud we heading towards the beaches of Seminyak.
下一站是 Seminyak 的沙灘。
In Seminyak we stayed at The Santai and then The L Hotel. Both places were really lovely. The Santai was a villa so it was really private. We literally spent 2 days in the pool just swimming and relaxing on the big comfy floating bean bags they provided and riding bikes around the near by streets.
我們選擇了 Seminyak 的 The Santai 和 The L Hotel ，兩者都是極之可愛迷人的酒店。The Santai 是度假別墅式酒店，私隱度極高。我們在泳池玩了兩日，游下水，躺在酒店提供的舒適豆豆浮床，輕鬆一下，並且在附近的街道踏單車，四處遊覽。
The L hotel was very different. It was right smack bang in the middle of the action in Seminyak, which meant I could do some shopping, yay. The hotel had some really quirky services. One in which they provided each guest with a mobile phone so that you could contact your own personal butler to pick you up or drop you off where ever you needed to go, 24 hours a day, umm amazing. They also had a pillow menu and provided you with a little bedtimestory, which was cute. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Best sleep I have had in since India my daughter came along. Again I also visited all the vegetarian and raw restaurants in the hood my favorite being Desa Seni. It was kind of a bitter sweet visit because once arriving I didn’t want to leave I just wanted to stay there do yoga and eat their yummy food for a week haha. Next time xx
The L Hotel 是完全另一種感受，它正正位於 Seminyak 的中心地帶，即是說，我可以開心購物。酒店更提供非常特別的服務，它為每位客人供應一部手提電話，可以聯絡你的私人總管，可以隨時隨地接載你去任何地方， 小時服務，真是極之貼心。酒店更有不同的睡眠選單，為你提供睡前小故事，可愛之極。睡床更是入住過的酒店當中，讓我睡得最舒服的，亦是 India 出世後，最熟睡的晚上。同樣，我試過不同的素食和原始煮食的餐廳，當中最喜愛的是 DesaSeni 。今次旅程有苦有甜，因為每次來到就不想走，很想留在這裡做做瑜伽，享受開心美食一星期，哈哈，下次吧。
