Girls Get the Vibe Hotel

June 10, 2013 No Comments

Heels – Check New dress – Check Red Lipstick – Check Who is driving – ??? Grabbing my Girlfriends for a night out in Sydney all seemed near impossible as far as logistics and girls can go interms of where to met and who is the designated driver…and with no volunteers a little blonde birdy came up […] /* */

Upgrade To Heaven – Viceroy, Ubud

  Closest I’ve Been to Heaven!     MAJESTIC! The first word that came to mind as I entered the lobby of Viceroy, the luxurious hotel in Ubud, Bali. Standing in awe of its grandeur I was completely shocked to be informed I had been upgraded to not only a better room but to The […] /* */

On the road for higher ground I am headed to Vision Villa in Gianyar. It is a 1 hour drive from Seminyak and about 20 minutes from Ubud. To get a taxi It cost me about $25AUD which would not get me very far at all back home in Sydney. As I enter the better […] /* */

  Is what happened as I drifted off during my massage at the cutest ever Spa within the Maharta Bali Hotel in Legian. I hope I didn’t snore! Maharta, a 3 star resort that has recently had a change of ownership and with the many renovations taken place, this quaint little resort’s atmosphere is thriving. It is […] /* */

Not a bad little find in Seminyak at $50 per night and only a two minute walk to the beach. PERFECTO! If security is an issue then maybe this isn’t the place for you!!! Padlocks for the outside and a tiny little wooden bar for inside, however after I had travelled through a great part […] /* */

  Probably the least excited staff of any resort to greet me since my stay in Bali but considering the price of approx. $60 per night and the location on the beach in Legian I won’t take it too personally. I may not have found any luxury here but I did find it quite peaceful, relaxing […] /* */

Now The Bali Safari and Marine Park was highly recommended and being one of the popular tourist attractions around Ubud I thought I just had to visit. Although… I felt this experience raised many issues within myself and the issue of animal conservation. However, the park promotes itself on the education of animal conservation and environmental awareness […] /* */

Intoxicating… Is the smell of this tropical paradise called Bali as you exit through the doors of the airport. With my name ‘Cook’ displayed on a signboard, almost equivalent to the size of a welcoming banner I am met with my driver to transport me to my first stop on this adventure. Through the bright […] /* */
