To the Menjangan resort in West Bali National Park

It is bittersweet that we leave Tanjung Sari Hotel. It has been an oasis. 


This place really could be one the best small boutique hotels in the world. It is a destination in and of itself. We had our last dinner to Balinese bamboo vibraphone players. Not these but someone like them. Nice. 


It was beautiful. Yoga, breakfast and a swim in the ocean and pool. 


This place is very romantic. 


We packed and went with our driver, Widi. He picked us up at the airport and took us out yesterday. Super dude. Our first stop will be the Hindu Temple on the sea, Tanah Lot. Only native Balinese are allowed inside and the causeway out to the temple can really be underwater. Magical setting. 



This was on the other side of the overlook we were at. 



Widi drove and drove and drove us on the crazy Balinese roads. 

We headed for Lake Brayan and Lake Buyon steadily climbed up ward. It became rainy and overcast.

We got to a good overlook and had a coffee.


1500 meters up. We finally got the coast road and found the Menjangan resort in the park. The view from the tower at reception. 



We took a double decker safari car through the park and sat up top. Better pictures later in the stay from the safari car. 


Mariella and I are pretty “knackered” from the long drive. I cannot say enough how great Widi was today. He was so conscientious about our comfort. Driving in Bali is no small feat. He will pick us up on Saturday. I will take a boat and snorkel at Palau Menjangan tomorrow morning. Mariella will snorkel from the beach a little further down from the featured image. Home for 4 days. Peace. Namaste Tres. 

Last full day in Sanur Beach

A great sleep in Tandjung Sari paradise. Yoga then breakfast. A slower snail pace for today. 


Mariella and I have scheduled a ride to Bali Orchid Garden this morning for our last organized activity before leaving tomorrow. We will come back and just hang out at the beach. It was phenomenal. A few pics.












Needless to say it was Orchid heaven.


We left there and had some coffee from the luwak and bought a little too. The featured image is in the median of a highway.




We will have a traditional rijstaffel dinner at hotel. Tomorrow off to Menjangan at West Bali National Park. Some of the best snorkeling in Bali. Peace. Namaste Tres
