Bali Vacation - 6th - 9th July


We finally had a long overdue family vacation in July. I booked this trip a long time ago through one of Air Asia's promotion. Its quite difficult booking in advance as you just dont know what might crop up later.

Anyway, we had our Bali trip flights booked. But being such a last minute person, we did not book the hotel till the day before the trip!! We called so many hotels in Bali, and all of them were fully booked. Luckily, after several searches, we found this really, really nice hotel - the Ramayana Resort and Spa which was right smack in Kuta. It had a really nice Balinese landscape, and was surrounded by trees, which made it very cosy and relaxing. They had 2 pools - so we hung out with the one nearest to our room. The good thing about the hotel is its location at Jln Bakung sari, which was in the middle of everything - a convenient store next door, shopping stalls all around, Matahari Square on the right, all the spas and salons on the left and a short walk to Hard Rock, where we spent the day.

The girls really had a good time and spend a good deal of time swimming and having bubble baths. They found it very tiring to walk due to the hot sun. On the 3rd day, we walked all over Kuta and Legian street but took a taxi back to the hotel as their legs could not take it. Then at night, they got their hair braided (something they were looking forward to) while I had a cream bath for my hair! We all had manicures and pedicures done which made the girls really thrilled.

We did not do any sight seeing as we thought this would be just a break for the girls get away from their normal routine. Plus, it would be too tiring for them.

Now, they are looking forward to their next holiday!
