Other than going out last night to watch Oz the Great and Powerful, I have been staying at home for the past few days after work! This is because I am busy planning for my upcoming Bali trip which will be happening in less than 2 weeks' time! :)
Z and I are going together! We took advantage of the airline offer by KLM and paid only $250 nett each for a 2-way trip.
Finally, just now, after many many hours of research, I decided and booked a superior room in Amadea Resort & Villas in Seminyak. I booked via Agoda. After using the Agoda rewards which I accumulated through my previous bookings and paying through my DBS credit card (7% off for all hotels booked via Agoda), I paid about $360 for a 4 day 3 night stay! If you have a DBS/ POSB credit card, you have to use this link to Agoda website to book your hotels in order to enjoy the 7% discount. :)
For the past few days, I was trying to decide between booking a one-bedroom villa with pool and an ordinary hotel room. Staying a villa will definitely be a different experience but Z and I are not people who like to stay indoors when we are overseas. We will definitely be out exploring on all days so staying in a villa may be a "waste" for us. So, our final choice was an ordinary hotel room. :)
I chose Amadea Resort & Villas over the many other good hotels because this resort has many good reviews in both Agoda and TripAdvisor. This resort is also very near to Seminyak Square (a two storey shopping mall) and the 'Eat Street' where many good restaurants are in.
I chanced upon Wen's Delight, a food and travel blog. The author of this blog wrote a rather detailed experience on her Bali trip. If you are also planning a trip to Bali, you might want to check out her blog.
Oh yes, I will also be engaging a driver cum tour guide. I am still in the process of planning my trip.
If you have any places you think I should go, please let me know. Thanks!!
Have a great weekend :)
