If you follow my Instagram, you are well aware that Andrew and I just spent 9 days in the most beautiful place on earth. Not only was the scenery absolutely breathtaking, the people and the culture of Bali are rich, inviting, and remarkable. After a relaxing and culture enriching vacation, it safe to say: Bali, Indonesia is one of our favorite places on earth!
After a 28 hour travel day, Andrew and I arrived in Bali at 1:00 am, only to be greeted by a wonderful heat and very welcome humidity level! After living in Denver, any humidity is welcomed by this Texas native... Anyway - because we arrived so late, Andrew and I decided not to spend the money on an "expensive" hotel room, and opted for the Hilton Garden Inn just 4 minutes from the hotel. HOLY CRAP. For a whole $22/night, we were able to stay in a gorgeous hotel room that would have easily cost $130+ in the states. The bed was super comfortable and the pool was gorgeous (see photos of our "pool day" in the vlog above!).
After a delicious breakfast buffet, served by the Hilton staff, we headed to the pool to get some much needed sun before checking into our hotel reservation for the rest of the week. On the way to our villa, we stopped at, what became a staple this trip, a quaint little restaurant owned by a French gentleman and his Balinese wife, Mofo Kitchen. The smoothie bowls and quesadillas were AMAZING. We literally ate at Mofo's 4 or 5 times during our 9 day stay in Bali.
After lunch, it was finally time to settle into our hotel: The Sanyas Suite villas were everything we hoped they would be. They were gorgeous, clean, and private -- great for two people celebrating their 1-year anniversary! One of the main reasons we chose Bali was how affordable everything was, and The Sanyas Suite was no exception... for only $100/night, we were able to enjoy this amazing private villa, complete with a kitchenette, a private pool, and a really comfortable king bed.
After getting settled in, we headed off to one of Seminyak's most popular beach clubs: Potato Head Beach Club! The walk there was nothing short of mesmerizing, with a gorgeous sunset to welcome us to the beach. We trotted across the warm sand over to the entrance to the club. It was magical. I've always told Andrew I wanted to go to a nighttime pool party, and this club just marked that off my bucket list! We had a blast as we sipped drinks and danced to the pop music, under the salty air.
Day 2 was just as exciting -- don't miss a beat and catch it here:
