The Bali Story: Day 2


I highly recommend the Natura Resort & Spa, Ubud

Today's the 2nd day in Bali and I'm kinda enjoying it.. I just found out how Ubud is totally different from Kuta and Nusa Dua which are the more popular destinations for tourists in terms of entertainment and shopping. Ubud is kinda remote from the busyness of Bali. I have to say that it took us an hour and a bit to get to our hotel at Ubud from the airport. Whereas places such as Kuta and Nusa Dua are nearer. Then again, I love here in Ubud as it's full of nature and green and also quite peaceful. So if you guys want time out from the hustle and bustle, Ubud is the best choice of stay.

Now I've not talk so much about the hotel we stayed in. Thanks to Agoda, I managed to find an awesome place in Ubud and we're staying at this resort called Natura Resort and Spa. I would have thought it was nearby the beach because of the resort word. However, the closest we've got is a river down the hill *lol* Then again, this area is pretty scenic (the green and the jungle) and I love the villas that we are staying at. The price is around $220 per night with two bedrooms and a mini pool. The master bedroom is huge and lucky lilmopiko has the whole room to herself :p

Oh yeah, internet speed is quite fast too for a remote area though I'm hardly on the internet on my macbook air *lol* As for adapter, they use a round two-pin plug but not to worry as the housekeeping do provide those adapters for your convenience. Service is pretty good too as we arrived 11ish pm on our first night and they assisted us quite well and efficient. I was a bit worried at first because we did our booking through Agoda and all we had was our printed out voucher and furthermore, we had a late check-in. But it was all good as the reception had our booking confirmed as well as the transaction from a few months' ago.

Definitely a highly recommended place if you want a piece of mind and enjoy the scenic view of the hills and the jungle. Perhaps the downside is the breakfast as it was just average but that to me is such a minor thing. Another challenge was the numerous steps on the way to the Spa hut which can be a turn off for me.. Michelle kinda had second thoughts about her spa appointment because it can be quite tiring to walk up the steps and you will be left panting halfway through the steps (which I did *lol*).

If your want to check out the comments from tripadvisor.com you can click here. Oh yeah, it's better that you hire a driver since there are no cab services in Ubud. Prices are quite reasonable as well for a whole day and we have an awesome driver too. One awesome hideaway and I've been enjoying my sleep in many months :D Thank Natura Resort & Spa for giving me an awesome stay experience. Definitely coming back here next time.


The "Do Not Disturb" sign on our villa


This is unique as this is the first time I've seen umbrellas provided in hotel rooms


I have the twin beds all to myself and this room is the smaller of the two


This is the master bedroom and one of the spacious room I've seen from a villa. Awesome!!!


The sitting area at the master bedroom. Sadly I don't have this in my room *boohoo*


The bath tub at the master bedroom


A big area for wardrobe and washing up


Lilmopiko and Jasmine enjoying the morning view, down at the balcony of the villa


The breakfast dining area. We weren't impressed with the food but it was ok still.


The hotel pool area down the hill


The steps get smaller once you keep going down the hill if you want to go to the river. It's quite a climb too once you are all the way down.


If you want to go for the spa, this can be challenging in terms of stamina *lol*


The Spa huts and it closes pretty early at 5pm because of the lack of light


Michelle trying out the tub at the Spa


You can enjoy the scenic while you are being pampered


Ah.. I was doing this entry post here :D


Winnie… We miss you.. Too bad you're not able to make it. Taken before our shopping/sightseeing trip yesterday morning


Oh yeah, did I tell you that the street leading to our hotel from the simpang is narrow which is enough for one car. There are couple of times our driver had to reverse because of an incoming car.
