HEHEHE! Here comes a super long overdue post on our Bali trip back in March this year! Procrastination game strong. Hurhur! 😛 Suddenly very motivated to get this up on the blog because we are going to Hong Kong next week! LOL. Also, it was Cayla’s very first overseas holiday trip at 7 months old, so I must blog about it!
As far as I could remember, the girls were quite well-behaved on the flight. Anyway it was just a short 3-hour journey! When we touched down at Denpasar International Airport, our driver was already waiting to pick us up. We booked our airport transfer via Klook and the prices vary according to location. Our hotel is situated at Kuta which is nearer the airport compared to the other areas.
Four Points by Sheraton, Kuta was our choice of accommodation because it’s a Starwood hotel and also relatively new. Plus, prices are very reasonable!
After climbing the short flight of steps, we were welcomed with ice popsicles! I think they were mango-flavored. Check-in was swift and smooth!
Our room was located on the ground floor because I booked a room with lagoon access, which means you can simply jump straight into the pool from your room balcony!
I wouldn’t say that our room was exactly very spacious but there was sufficient room for a baby cot, two luggages and a stroller.
The view from our balcony! It made all of us so excited lol!
Prior our trip, I registered Chanelle for the P.I.M.P (Papa! I Made a Pizza) class. It costs only IDR 100,000++ for kids under 12 and if adults want to join in, they may do so at IDR 200,000++. The pizza is yours to eat after the session and the price is inclusive of a soft drink and gelato too.
Definitely a great experience and bonding activity for parents and children.
The pizza tasted really yummy actually!
After lunch, we checked out the hotel’s indoor playground! Very impressed by how clean and sophisticated it looked!
Decided to head to the nearby shopping mall in the evening. LOL both kids were too tired by then.
Did a bit of shopping and stopped by A&W! Look at Cayla eyeing my root beer float! LOL.
When in Bali, drink Bintang beer! 😛
Oh yes! We were celebrating our 4th customary wedding anniversary and the hotel surprised us with a slice of chocolate cake when we returned to our room after dinner 🙂
All ready for our adventure the next morning!
We rented a stroller from Bali Baby for our entire trip. No need to bring a stroller along which can be quite a hassle! Rates are affordable and they offer delivery to your hotel.
Our private driver picked us up around 10.30am and the journey to our first destination took about an hour!
Finally reached Taman Ayun temple and the weather was scorching hot. We didn’t manage to take many photos there because Chanelle decided to do her big business there and also refused to cooperate. Lol.
Next stop was Jatiluwih rice terrace! Supposedly a very nice place but then the sky was very dark and gloomy! Erratic weather in Bali!
Quick lunch at the restaurant. They were trying to promote their buffet but we werent exactly very hungry.
Our third and final stop of the day was Tanah Lot, where we had a photoshoot! Haha it was a pity the kids were very tired and cranky by then! Anyway, you can read about our experience here 🙂
Settled our dinner at the hotel!
Part Two of our Bali trip coming next! 🙂
