Bali was a wonderful experience, with fresh air and sandy beaches.
It is a great place to go if you want to escape the rush of the city and just relax by the poolside.
Bali is filled with culture and history too, visit the Uluwata Temple, it is a Hindu temple set on the cliff of Bali Peninsula, or you could visit the Tanahlot temple which is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Bali, it has a spectacular view of the sunset.
Bali’s capital is Denpasar, and is hour and half flight from Singapore. You can find so many cultures on the streets of Bali, like Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Buddhist.
The airline that took me to Bali was Singapore Airlines; the flying time was 20 hours, Vancouver- Seoul – Singapore – Bali. I stayed a night in Singapore at Crowne Plaza, Changi. A spanking new brand new property located at the terminal. I would recommend Crowne Plaza to anybody for a brief stopover in Singapore. The best thing is you don’t have to take a ride to downtown hotels.
Flying through Singapore airlines was pleasant and comfortable experience.
This airline has always lived up to my expectations. The Singapore Airlines crew was very generous and helpful as ever.
When I first landed at the Bali airport it was a little crowded and it was hard to find my way around because there was not much help. But once I was outside the airport there was an Indus Travels representative waiting there for me. He welcomed me very well.
On my way to the Villa there was very little traffic because it was a national holiday, and we arrived in no time.
The weather was gorgeous, the sky was blue and the sun was out, the first impression of this country that I got, was that this place was filled with the two things I love:- culture and beaches.
The resort I stayed in was the Samaya Villas part of Indus Travels Private Villa Collection. A very luxurious and comfortable property located in Seminyak area of Bali. It had gorgeous greenery all around it with relaxing sound of the waves crashing onto the shore. The Villa comes with facilities like your own private plunge pool, flat screen TV, a mini bar, 4 poster bed and a butler whenever you want it, and no sound to disturb you. Other than that you will have the main pool, the luxurious “spa at the Samaya” , and two restaurants. One thing I liked about the pool side restaurant was they served breakfast but with a difference. You can order anything from their menu and it is served fresh as per your liking and not a grand buffet.
The villas were very exclusive and secluded yet right on the beach. The resort was really up to my expectations.
