Ritz-Carlton Bali

August 13, 2016

Here’s the reasons why my short stay at Ritz-Carlton Bali was enjoyable.

Having heard so much about Bali, which is even more famous than its own country, I’ve wanted to check it out for myself for a long time. When I finally got the chance, I was horribly sick. The second trip was no different.

The plus point is that I get to stay and experience the different areas of town on each visit – figuring my favourite spots, activities and places to stay and explore when in Bali. After plenty second chances that is..

The Resort

Located in Nusa Dua, which is a distance from the bustling city life, Ritz-Carlton Bali aims to provide a luxurious, relaxed and rejuvenating stay to its guests.

I’d say the five-star property’s unique location, combining a mesmerising white beach front setting with a distinctive Balinese cliff top, is its biggest advantage. Since the resort is fairly new (opened in February 2015), facilities are in tip-top condition.

The minus point is  its greeneries are still lacking in comparison to other resorts in the area, as seen in the photos above.

Taking A Dip

I was never going to step out of my Villa-Styled Ritz-Carlton Suite since it comes with an outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, spacious balcony and daybed. Forgot to get the photo of the 2 Queen beds and the rest of the room since I was too engrossed in dipping into the pool, though.

Catching Sunrise

The situation at about 5.30AM – watching sunrise from my room with dad. How convenient.

The Chapel

Spent a great deal of time at the chapel. I’m completely in love with how the chapel is strategically located – overlooking the beautiful ocean.

The Spa

I’ve always wanted to try an open-air spa but due to time constraints, we barely manage to get a booking. Service was good, something you’d expect from a five-star property. Sadly, our session was rather rushed as we had dinner plans right after that. Didn’t manage to capture the Balinese spa ambience.

Strolling Along The Beach

Compared to the well known and busy Kuta beach, I’m loving the quiet and peaceful private beach in Nusa Dua more. It’s perfect for quality time with loved ones.
