BALI PLUS Magazine November 2015
The month had passed by in a frenzy of fun, hardwork and great entertainment and before we know it, November is here. Soon, it’s going to be December but for now, we indulge in beautiful balmy Bali days of seaside bliss and sunshine before the peak season hits. It’s the perfect time to embark on an easy-going adventure, discover new gems in familiar places and tuck into delicious exotic dishes or explore a place off the beaten path. In this issue, we have a new addition – a section on the capital city of Bali, Denpasar. For those who’ve never been to this bustling, modern, multi-cultural city with its rich and colourful history and culture, then this is the perfect guide to help you discover all-time favourite haunts of both locals and expats, where to go for ultra-modern gadgets and smartphones as well as cultural and historical points.
Want to live your safari dream and go on an escape? The setting of this epic tale is right here at the tropical jungle of Taro, in Bali Adventure Tours, where not only you can feed, touch and ride the elephants, you can also unwind in a luxurious Japanese-themed spa right here in the hills of Ubud. Here in Bali’s cultural heartland, you’ll find many hidden treasures such as The Samaya Ubud and Alaya Ubud where many have returned from far and wide to its world-class Petani restaurant that serves Indonesian cuisine fit for royalty. Talking about cuisines, Bali is full of choices. If it’s Japanese you’re after, then try Grand Nikko Bali’s Sunday Brunch for its deliciously incomparable authentic Japanese food made by the hands of a real Japanese chef at Benkay Japanese restaurant. For those who are in Kuta, pop in to the Sushi Tei at Beachwalk for classic Japanese dishes to satisfy your cravings. Another one of our all-time favourites has to be Kori Restaurant & Bar, time tested and proven since 1998 and for authentic, incomparable Chinese food that will leave you wanting more, make a booking at Ru Yi, at Awarta Nusa Dua Luxury Villas & Spa.
So enjoy your time here in Bali. If you’re looking for a place to stay, try Bali Island Villas, an impeccable, tranquil escape that’s smack bang in the centre of Petitenget. If you’re in need of a dental service BIMC Nusa Dua Dental Centre will take care of you. So rest your mind, spirit and body and indulge.
