This is my second trip to Bali. I love Bali~
I took taxi to Tanaya once i reach the airport and it charged us Rp55K. I bought the taxi ticket from the counter near exit even many of them were approached us once we stepped out from the lobby.
Due to the heavy traffic over weekend, the taxi drove us more than 30 minutes to reach Tanaya. This B&B located just nice of the Legian road, a happening night life place. A fast check-in and friendly service provided by the staffs. We stayed at the room 3 (twin bedded with enclosed bathroom) at second floor. The room is clean and the beds are comfortable. Viewing from the window to outside, it is a path for the locals to ride to somewhere. So, it is a bit noisy. The TV stations provides variety of programs so you wont feel bored if staying inside the room. Besides, they also provide Wifi service at the lobby and you may get the coverage in your room with very low speed. We never put high expectation in the breakfast because just a simple bakery food, food and drink only.
This hotel is very strategically located in Legian road. It provides many choices of food and entertainments. It is a pub called "Brewer" located right opposite of the B&B. If you would like to have some western food with pork served, you can turn to your right (walk out from the B&B entrance) to dine at the Mama's German Restaurant. The food is nice and at reasonable price. If you would like to take a Starbucks, just turn to your left from Tanaya and located in the Legian 101 (new hotel with higher price but better environment). Further down from here, you will reach more happening places which consists of many different pubs and lounges. Finally, you will reach a "triangle" junction, a sad place which bombing happened few years back. There is a memorial wall with those name lists stated on for visit. Along the way from Tanaya, there are a lot of branded shops, local shops and convenient stores.
Just an extra sharing tip for those would like to get local sim card. The sim card is not available in all convenient stores. If they can sell you, they will offer you at higher price ranging from Rp50K to Rp90K which i experienced before. As my guess, i think the sim card sell personally by the staff because they won't provide you any receipts and different pricing in different store even the sim pack is same. According to my honest tour guide, the sim card only cost around Rp5K with Rp2K credit inside. If you would like to get one, you may get it around the shop (so-called IT shop) same row with the colourful Surfer girl's shop around the memorial wall because it sells various sim card there. Good luck!
Made's Warung is one of the famous local cafes in Bali. There is a branch in Kuta area which took me 20 minutes to reach there from Tanaya B&B. It is located at the right side of the junction after the memorial wall, which is opposite of the Indigo Kid shop.
From Tanaya to Kuta beach, it only takes about 20 minutes from the short-cut besides the Hurley's building (grey bricks) before the Mama's German restaurant. There are many hidden gems in this path to look around here. Just enjoy the walk to the Kuta Beach.
If you are very sensitive to noise, please get a room further in from the lobby at second floor. Thi...
