Ayana Resort & Spa, Bali

After Eat, Pray, Love _ I have added in my wish list  the three countries Julia Roberts had been in the movie. But ofcourse I'd go nearest first and the most practically viable, atleast  from where I'm coming from ( Phils.). .

Bali, Indonesia. It's hard not to acknowledge that the mentioned movie is in one way or another boosting the tourism industry of Bali. I am a random testament to that, haha.

For instance, the 5star resort that we were staying in was offering a package named exactly after the movie - Eat, Pray, Love Bali's Package which rates range from $299++/night to $599++/night, roughly P15k to P25k (in our local currency) per night, depending on your choice of accommodation.

For this Bali trip, we went high-end, made a pass on the massively crowded Kuta beach ( which could be like the station 1 and 2 of our Boracay ) and headed to a more secluded Jimbaran beach. This is the realm of luxury hotels. We were staying at the Ayana Resort and Spa, a cliff top luxury hotel.

No doubt about the beach being perfect. In my short and limited Bali experience, I actually haven't seen any beach here that wasn't. The resort has a private beach exclusively for the guests, it's the Kubu Beach.

We stayed in a cliff villa with best feature ever _ a private infinity edge plunge pool!! Is that luxury or what??

Facilities and amenities are endless. It got  lavish spa packages which mostly I haven't heard of yet before here.

Another thing that Ayana Resort is famous for is as wedding destination. It has this state-of-the-art glass paneled wedding pavilion that sits on the towering cliffs of Jimbaran Bay. This wowed me, so much so it made me wish a renewal of  vows with husband_ here when we hit a lotto jackpot, haha.

Aside from in- villa dining, this resort also got astounding list of dining options. One of the most famous ever is  The Rock Bar which is another flagship of the resort.

We went seafood indulging at Kisik Bar which is also another reason to enjoy a ride of  the resort's unique inclinator.

Ofcourse my Bali affair doesn't end here. .I've only just begun. .
