World Surfaris Senior Consultant, Rebecca Blade has just returned from an Indo Trip where she personally inspected the hotels in our select range for Bali and Nusa Lembongan. This latest update is GOLD as there are so many Indo accommodation options to choose from and our World Surfaris clients are already loving having Rebecca on the phone for personal recommendations!
The below pics are photos of her sharing bintangs with some of our World Surfaris Bali staff. She won't let us post the pics of her going SUP'ing out from the new Mercure Hotel Surf Shack :) however she did great, and she also fell in love with the beautiful Angelique... the resident sacred cow (that grazes outside the Mercure Resort's Yoga Retreat and grooms the beach each morning) check her out...
We asked Rebecca what she liked most about our choice hotels:
EAST BALI ACCOMMODATION
Mercure Sanur "Amazing beach frontage and it's super handy having the complimentary shuttles to Hardy's shopping centre in the heart of Sanur".
Villa Puri Ayu (Sanur) "50m off the beach, this is a great value mid range hotel with a good restaurant and live music".
Ellora Villas (Sanur) "is up the road from Ajanta Villas (Sanur). Both are gorgeous, private, and spacious with personal plunge pools and beautiful Balinese wooden doors. The bonus with Ajanta is that it's closer to the beach with 20m beach access and two restaurants".
Cucukan Villas (Keramas) "Absolute beachfront location, great for families or large groups, a true home away from home..."
Komune Resort (Keramas) "This property has the most incredible veggie garden and they're in the process of building a huge new health hub with 25m lap pool, cross fit, yoga and day spa. Boasting an impressive ocean view pool and restaurant this resort would suit the younger surfers and families looking for a chilled environment away from town. Nightly bonfires by the beach are a great social gathering..."
NUSA LEMBONGAN ACCOMMODATION
Nusa Lembongan Island Beach Villas "Has a central location off the beach and close to the boat access. Villas are homely and generous in size with full kitchens (for those wishing to bring groceries over from Bali). Filtered water on tap is a plus in each villa".
Coconuts Beach Resort "Close to the action, this resort has a beautiful infinity pool and is a great mid range option".
Lembongan Cliff Villas "Hands down my favourite Nusa Lembongan option... Breathtaking panoramic views from the restaurant and by far the most private of our accommodation choices".
BUKIT PENINSULA ACCOMMODATION
La Joya "My favourite Bukit property for its traditional Balinese (Sasak) Villas. For those wishing to splurge the Presidential Villa is worth considering and the views are to die for..."
Aman Gati Balangan "Found right next door to La Joya. At a lower price point, this is a great alternative to La Joya due to the friendly staff and amazing views from the restaurant. Agriculture farming land lies in front of both properties before the cliff face drops to the sea".
Blue Point Bay Villa & Spa "Holds the most ideal location for surfers... and commands the most impressive pool view I think I've ever seen. Alongside is the infamous Single Finn Restaurant enjoying the same amazing panoramic views".
Padang Padang Brothers Haven "Has a really comfortable feel... a spot where you could relax with small numbers of like minded surfers".
Sandat Mas Cottages "a budget alternative with a new restaurant"
Bingin Inn "Ideal for surfers with a surfer vibe and comfortable rooms, a win win".
KUTA / LEGIAN / SEMINYAK ACCOMMODATION
Whilst Rebecca didn't have time to see our complete range here, she stayed at Pelangi Hotel and inspected the following 4 great options now being added to our range...
Pelangi Bali Hotel "Beachfront with one of the biggest pools I've ever seen, swim up bar, sun lounges on beach and huge rooms".
Kuta Puri Bungalows (on Poppies 1) "I'm a great fan of this option because it's like this secret hideaway in the heart of Kuta. It's very Balinese with a beautiful pool. Walk out of your sanctuary and you're in the heart of the Kuta markets, restaurants and shopping".
Bali Mandira Beach Resort & Spa "Quite simply breathtaking. From your arrival at reception; to the private upstairs club suites; to the sand entry lagoon pool; to the adults only pool; intriguing hydro slide; to the lush tropical gardens... Incredible! If you're after the full beachfront resort experience then this is it".
Legian Village Hotel "a good budget option, however I recommend upgrading to Superior rooms".
