A journey far less travelled by tourists to Bali. As I have spoken about before it is a 3 hour car trip through jungles and over mountains.
Past great lakes formed from volcano craters. Through an area where sometimes you are standing above the clouds.
As soon as you hit the heights and start the drive down the other side before you as far as the eye can see it the North East/West coastline.
For our trip over we decided to spend a week and it was one of our best weeks in Bali. Accommodation of choice again was a villa found on Flipkey.
We chose Villa The Mango Trees.
Some times in life things just fall into place. They feel right, they just are and this place was it for us. Where do I start.
Amazing, glorious, fantastic, oasis. A hideaway from all of the rushing universe.
From the time of first booking the owner Angelique was so prompt and so helpful. Nothing was ever a problem. Fantastic communications.
After a very long drive we were soo happy when the driver arrived at the gates of what I can only describe as paradise.
The staff where all waiting for us and greeted us with such kindness and an ice cold drink. Fabulous smiles..
The villa itself is exactly as portrayed in ALL advertisements on ALL sites. Actually it excelled the photos. We spent a magical week and the staff were kind caring attentive and just terrific.
I can honestly highly recommend this particular villa and all Angelique’s villas.
You will not be disappointed.
The most beautiful and peaceful place in all my years of traveling to Bali that I have ever stayed in. The staff who were absolute treasures. So patient and involved us in their lives (we learnt so much).
Angelique looks after many properties over that side and all are as beautiful and she is an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Angelique can be contacted through Flipkey or one of her 2 websites below.
There are many other villa’s located either on the beach or for a beautiful view in the hillsides surrounding the area. All villa’s are fully staffed. Some examples linked in below.
This is just an example of the villas on the books with Angelique.
What are you waiting for. Pack and just go. You wont regret it and your crazy if you don’t.
Try the wild side of Bali and relax and soak up the magic as only The Island of the Gods, Bali, can offer.
Til next time
