Returned a few weeks ago (about 10th trip) and of course already planning next trip.
Highlights this trip:
Happy Tailor-Bali - Yuni was recommended by a friend. I contacted her via her facebook page. What a fantastic lady. Perfect English and super funny. She came to my hotel and copied lots of items for my daughter & son.I had a beautiful black leather trench coat made plus she made a couple of fantastic suits for my husband. I can not rave about her enough. She also gave me great tips on shopping and eating places.
MIOW shoes and handbags -Kerobokan Rd, Loved the gorgeous shoes and bags. So many choices and colours. I kept going back and buying, buying, buying.
i went to Uluwatu temple and a monkey stole my thong right out from under my foot on the last step out......had to pay 10,000 to buy a bag of peanuts to get the monkey to drop the thong -Mmmmm i think there is a well coordinated scheme happening. Washed the thong but threw it away when got back to hotel as large teeth marks all over it.
Eating- always enjoy the food and atmosphere of Ultimo. Love Sushi Tei and always go at least twice per trip. Love the welcome 'Moshi Moshi' as you enter. The food is so good. Sarong is simply beautiful and the food is 5 star. Not the cheapest place but worth every penny. Mang Engking is must visit place to eat. You can not book but need to be patient and get a beautiful Bale over the water. You can see the fish under your feet. The seafood platters are yummy and very affordable.
Stayed at the Ananda Resort, Legion. Nice, staff lovely, breakfast ok but rooms very small. It is in a great location for getting around and near the beach.
