TRAVEL DIARY: THE ART OF DOING NOTHING IN BALI INDONESIA

We decided to spend our anniversary with a relaxed trip to Bali Indonesia. We did not intend to do any sightseeing, we just wanted to bask under the sun while lazing in front of the Indian Ocean.

Upon arriving at the Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar), you’ll immediately notice that Balinese feel of the airport. Kudos to the Indonesians for improving their airport.


We booked Ping Hotel Seminyak via Agoda since it's cheaper, which included an airport transfer. As soon as we got out of the airport, the driver was already waiting for us. He was waiting patiently as our flight was rescheduled. 


The roads from the airport to the hotel is very similar to Manila’s provinces, think Laguna or Batangas. It took us roughly 30 minutes to reach the hotel from the airport.


Ping Hotel Seminyak is a charming semi-boutique hotel, it’s not beachfront but it was only a short walk going to the beach so we did not mind. We booked a Superior Room inclusive of breakfast. The size of the room is just right and it has a balcony which gives a direct view of the pool.


Our room had this lovely view of the pool
Very balinese design
The beach is not really for swimming but more for surfing as the waves can get really high. We spent hours basically doing nothing and just enjoying the cool breeze of the ocean.
What a lovely view after a day of doing nothing!
We found one restaurant by the beach, called La Plancha, which serves good food which is why we dined there almost all nights that we were staying in Bali.



It was a short but very relaxing trip. Looking forward to coming back and exploring the other tourist spots Bali has to offer.

  5. Sometimes that's the way a vacation should be. I love just watching the sun rise and set, lounging by the pool and beach. Nothing better than that after a stressful work period.

  6. This looks so amazing and relaxing! Once we had kids, our vacations were never the same again lol. It's more stressful than relaxing. Someday though, we will visit Bali for sure!

  8. Bali, Indonesia? I am not really very particular for that place. I am very poor in Geography or tourism industry of any country. How I wish I could visit that place too. I am in the Philippines. How does the climate there as compared to our country. Right now it is the month of October, barely 2 months to go for December. We already feel the cool breeze of December. Waking up early in the morning, you won't get up or leave your bed for it is cold outside.

    1. Hi Gail, climate in Bali is very similar to what we have in Manila. Most of the time very sunny and it is really nice to just have a quiet time by the beach. Thanks for the visit!

  14. The place look so fun and relaxing, although the beach is not really for swimming because of waves, super ganda naman ang indoor pool. Hope to visit Bali, Indonesia someday. Thanks for sharing Sis
