With My 2 Girls
Hubs took this photo while we were waiting to check in to our villa @ Kamandalu Resort & Spa.
Walking to our Room
I loved the "feel" of this place. After Ayana, this place felt more warm and err....Balinese. (Ayana was a tad too modern)
View of our villa when we opened the front entrance
O-M-G. I was thinking to myself - am I seeing what I'm seeing???
WHOOO HOOOO!!!!! My eyes were not deceiving me after all.
Our own private pool. Yippeeeee!!
(photo taken later that afternooon, hence the messy towel on the deck chair)
It was definitely a pleasant surprise! Actually, when hubby did the bookings, he asked me whether I wanted the pool villa. I was super tempted but then decided not to since it was too pricey. So we booked the garden villa. But while checking in, hubby managed to convince the hotel personnel to give us a free upgrade. Yay! He didn't say anything to me until we reached our villa :-)
Huge 4 poster bed in the room
Elyssa playing with rose petals
Baby Cot for Erin
Which was never used. All 4 of us slept on the bed.

The girls LOVED this!

With acomodation like that for the next 3D,2N, we mainly just stayed in and enjoyed the facilities :)
On that day itself, after lunch, nap and then ages and ages in the private pool, hotel main pool and bath tub, we took the hotel shuttle to Ubud town. Shopped for a while but didn't end up with anything. For dinner, we went to a Balinese restaurant with absolutely lovely garden settings. Very romantic with tea lights on each table. BUT with 2 restless girls (tired from pool play) and dark surroundings (romantic atmosphere quickly turned to "Arrgh...I can't see what I'm eating") we quickly finished our dinner then headed back to the hotel.
That night, after both girls were fast asleep, hubby and I happily jumped into the pool for our private night swim. Yay!
