Ok time to blog about the Bali trip! Went with TK, Ching and Keju.
The first night in Bali we stayed in this villa Julia Roberts was staying in when she was filming her latest movie Eat, Pray, Love (best selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert).
(Maybe i could still pick up some of the blonde hair she dropped in the villa?!?)
Ubud Hanging Gardens is said to be the best accommodation in Ubud. And having been to bali for 3 times, i don’t doubt that.
I don’t know how to tell you how exciting it was for me. I will just bombard you with 40 gorgeous pictures.
This is where it is located. It is quite impossible to find but once you found it, heaven just unfold before your eyes.
Flowers at the reception.
Statue in front of each villa.
The resort has 38 luxury private pool villas. Each villa features heated infinity plunge pool (HEATED!!!!!!! I have never been to any heated pool in Tropical countries wtf!).
(Erm we will come to that later.)
Now why is it called the “hanging gardens”?
Take a look at this:
The resort is build almost vertically, and there’s this inclined “railway” thingie, with a lift that brings you to and fro between the reception, your villa and the restaurant/pools.
The lift thingie. It operates non-stop and i can’t imagine working as a lift operator. (Well at least this one has got break-taking views. In Japan, the pretty elevator girls are stuck with sweaty hentai old men FTL.)
Workers fixing or building new villas.
My room (will come to that later too)
Dress from thepoplook.com
Took the lift down to the restaurant for breakfast.
And visited the common pool area.
All angmohs sun tanning by the pool.
This is the first infinity pool by the restaurant. Can you imagine swimming here????
I have never been to a pool with this sort of view!!! Totally incredible!
The 2nd layer of the infinity pool. This one if you drop down, confirm bye bye.
(pool overlooking a beautiful temple)
Time to look at my room yes?
View from my room.
With the HEATED POOL overlooking Ubud mountains and rice terrace.
Chill area next to the pool.
Infinity pool wtf!!!
Nvm hor. Got outdoor bathtub too!
I looooove the bed! So romantic!
So awesome i feel like a Bali Princess wtf.
At night we ordered room service, and the villa sent this butler with a hugeee old school dim sum box thing to our room.
It’s like a magic box wei, he took out plates, cutleries, placemats, napkins… food…
And set up with dinner table by your bedside!!!
We had foie gras & mushroom risotto.
I dunno if it was the ambience. But it was the most. freaking. delicious. risotto. ever.
How can i not be surprised! Best Risotto! In Bali! It sounds almost absurd. It’s worth every of the 200,000 rupiah wtf.
Close up pic with flash.
Was lying by the pool side. Feeding myself risotto and going “hmmmmmmmm” “hMmmMMMmmMmm” non stop thinking, this is the freaking life to live.
That’s all about the villa.
Anyway, if you visit Ubud next time, forget about the Bali Guling me (“wtf are you kidding me?” No i am not. It’s overrated.)
Try this instead. Naughty Nuris. I can’t remember where it is. But it’s famous! Just ask around!
Best. Pork. Ribs. Ever.
