Ian Cooper- Bali Trip- September 2016
I have just returned from Bali – to attend a wedding held in Uluwatu – at the Istana Villa a breathtaking cliff top position on the South Western tip of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula.
Istana can accommodate 10 adults in 5 bedrooms and is comfortable in catering for up to 150 guests at the wedding – the food was amazing, better than most Bali Restaurants and the Istana Spa offers on-site treatments. They can also provide chauffeured car transfers on request.
In Seminyak we stayed at IZE SEMINKAK – part of the Lifestyle Retreats chain. Boasts a great position in Seminyak close to all the popular restaurants , bars and shops. The Single Malt Bar is not to be missed.
Before returning we relaxed in UBUD at THE TJUMPHAN HOTEL for 3 nights- and took a Balinese Cooking School- a not to be missed experience while in UBUD. It takes around 5 hours and includes a market tour with explanation about the rice paddies before arriving at a typical Balinese home for the class – 8 dishes including a cook book to take home with all the dishes that you have personally helped prepare.
