I will be visiting Indonesia again! This blog is dedicated to share the fruits of my research to people out there who is also travelling to the same destinations but have no idea what to do and where to start!! Hope you like this!
Last time it was Batam! Read the post here – Batam Trip 3D2N
Yes I am currently planning a 4D3N trip to Bali!
Tiger Airway Tickets confirmed: $432 (With Insurance for 2 pax, without baggage check-in / on-board meals)
All of these are just visualising the trip / planning .. the actual trip will be on 25th May 2015 to 28th May 2015, so Stay Tune!
I will be staying at La Belle Villa – $249 SGD ($180.09 USD for 3 nights) ($60 USD / night) ($83 SGD / night) – I bought this deal from my favourite Groupon.sg.
I would say the price is a steal! Considering it is a villa! (But a shared common pool) .. The website itself sells the nights in 1,400,000 Indonesian Rupiah/night = SGD $140 / night
Professional Photos from the Website –
A place with only 6 1 BR villa, so it’s kind of private. (How exciting)
The villa itself is located in Seminyak, 21 minutes walk from the Seminyak Beach.
We also booked a personal driver for 3 days (Day 2 – 4). They offered us USD 40 per day (Around 10 hours) and drive us everywhere we want to do and fetch us from the Villa!
This person Putu and his family drivers, is highly recommended and found in Tripadvisor.sg, and also other recommended drivers mentioned also in the website and we decided to book Putu due to his many good reviews.
We will be packing light as it is only 4 Days and we will need to travel around before checking in and after checking out where there is no place to put our baggage, and Villa provides laundry service.
Our Itinerary (Day 1)
Reaching Airport by 9:05AM Bali Time.
Take Taxi to reach La Belle Villa at around 9:30AM and explore around.
We will walk from La Belle Villa to Seminyak Beach Walk. Popular Spot with lots of bars, restaurants, shopping. eg Ku De Ta, Potato Head Beach Club. Popular resorts and hotel near the beach and you would want to try these. Mind you – we don’t have enough budgets because these are surely expensive!

And lots of water sports near the beach! You will be spoilt for choice!
And a must try restaurant – Naughty Nuri’s is nearby.
