BALI: My Serene Getaway at the Exquisite Conrad Hotel


For as long as I have known Bali, Tanjung Benoa area is always the place for tourists to do water sports and that’s it. But on a recent visit to this Island of Gods, I found myself LOVING being in the hood (PS: I’m not really into water sports), you know why? Because I have just had such a serene 2-day stay at this hotel whose every corner seemingly screams GORGEOUS! You will learn that what I am saying is true as you read this blog post through.

A very “welcoming” main pool πŸ˜€

I arrived on a late Monday afternoon with a high urge to sleep because I was quite tired from the day and the morning before. But I held that thought for a bit as I entered my room. I just have snapped pictures right away and show you! Lookie, lookie!

Never an empty stomach

I would have to say, my dining experience was also superb. If you see a gorgeous place, you would at least expect that the quality and the taste of the food would be just as great. Thankfully I had the pleasure to eat at some of their restaurants they have during my stay so I can recommend you some menu I consider my favorite.

First off, your breakfast would take place at SUKU, the one under the main lobby if I remember correctly. I always ALWAYS love hotel’s breakfast (I love everything served in buffet, hehe!) and to my standard the food here are really good. Plus, you can sit outside and have a pool view while finishing your omelette, thinking of what to grab next.

For lunch or dinner, aside from SUKU, you also can go to Eight Degrees South (which is beachfront), Azure (this one I didn’t try), and RIN, specializing in Japanese cuisine and is located at the private area near the private pools.

At Eight Degrees South -which I think is a combination of both international and local cuisine- these are the menu I tried and the one below is my most favorite:

This is 8’s Garden Salad (IDR 130k): Mixed Lettuce, Baby Romaine, Cucumber, Bacon, Poached Egg, Avocado, Scallop, and Balsamic Dressing

I can’t get enough of this Lemon Meringue. It is so delicious! Definitely a must try for me πŸ˜€

RIN – Japanese Food Indulgence

If you’re into Japanese food, then you should definitely dine in this restaurant. I had a very good meal here and the food was really fresh. In Bahasa Indonesia I would say “ENAK BANGET!” or “Oishi” in Japs, hehehe… These were what I had…

The premise

As this hotel area is HUGE, I of course took the liberty to explore the entire place day and night. The surrounding view was just magnificent methinks. You know I love snapping pictures so I love photogenic place πŸ˜€ Come check it out yourself!

And as if those weren’t enough, you have to see their BEAUTIFUL WHITE CHAPEL! For those of you who plan to get married in Bali, or maybe need some inspirations on where to take your pre-wedding photos, I would suggest you contact Conrad for this. The narcissistic soul in me cannot resist to take a few photos here, hahaha…

Wouldn’t you wanna get married here?!

Overall, I had a really serene 2-day stay at Conrad. I swam everyday, walked around (I really love walking), ate extremely good food, chillin’ on my bathub (love this), and even worked out at the gym! Self-pampering at its best πŸ˜€

An exercise must not be forgotten even during holiday~~~Β 

Overall I really have to thank Imuthia and Novi from Conrad Bali for ensuring that I had the real Conrad experience during my stay. Thank you very much for the warmth, hospitality, and the fast-response service which my made my stay really lovely. I would definitely recommend Conrad for your honeymoon, family getaway, or just for your holiday with friends, really. I didn’t bother to go out of the hotel at all during my stay, I love caving in. I was afraid I would miss all the good stuff at the hotel had hahaha… And you know the best part is? Let’s say you have already checked out but you still want to hang around the hotel, they actually allocate a room for that. You can store your luggage, sit around, even shower in this area!

Makes me don’t wanna go home! By the way, this room is adjacent to the gym πŸ˜€

Hopefully I can come here again and you guys all can have the same (or even better) experience at Conrad Bali. Once again, thank you, Conrad! :*

    This resort is so huge. Once I stayed here and I got lost trying to find the reception the first two days.

    Beautiful pics Tep, serene indeed.

Salah satu cara menikmati kota #Cologne di Jerman Barat adalah dg ikutan Panorama Boat Cruise utk mengelilingi sungai #Rheine. Pilihan #boatride-nya banyak, tapi terjangkau kok. Kisaran harga dimulai dari sekitar 13 dollar sampai 30an dollar. 
Foto ini diambil di musim semi tahun 2013, kebetulan cuaca lagi adem-ademnya plus ada matahari. Pemandangan di depan adalah gedung yg disebut #Kranhaus (crane house). Sebenernya total ada 3 bangunan dg tinggi masing2 17 lantai. Dua gedung dipake utk perkantoran, yg satunya lg utk apartemen. Letaknya di Rheinauhafen (Rheine harbor) dan bentuk bangunannya (upside-down L) terinspirasi dari crane-crane yang dulu beroperasi  di pelabuhan untuk load/unload cargo kapal. Kranhaus dibangun pada Oktober 2006 dan selesai tahun 2008. 
Lumayan sambil #cruising jadi bisa liat sedikit tata kota dan arsitektur di Cologne. Turun dari kapal kita bisa lanjut leyeh-leyeh di taman sebelah sungai atau ngebir karena banyak #pub dan #cafe di sekitarnya! #LiveSmart #LiveAwesome #LiveMoreSociety #DBSxKartupos #travel #germany #visitgermany #visitcologne #rheineriver my cutie patootie #Usagi has arrived today. yay! danke schΓΆn, @designby.lev #SailorMoon What is #Starbucks Reserve? What's the difference with the regular #Starbucks? I went to check out the #vibe at Plaza Senayan, Plaza Indonesia, and Pakubuwono. Head to my blog (address on bio) to read my "report" πŸ˜„ #blog #blogger #blogging #coffeeshop #coffeetime #coffeecorner #coffeereview #teppyscoffeeshoplist #starbuckscoffee #starbucksindonesia #starbucksid #starbucksreserve Menurut gue utk ukuran sebuah kota, #Adelaide itu biasa aja. Kecil dan sepi, agak kebanting sama #Melbourne, #Sydney, bahkan #Perth (again, in my opinion). TAPIII... Kalo nyetir ke luar kota alias #roadtrip, banyak tempat-tempat seru dg pemandangan cantik yg bisa kita eksplorasi, apalagi kalo suka ngewine 😍 Salah satunya #BarossaValley ini. Barossa Valley adalah daerah penghasil #wine terkenal di #Australia selatan, sekitar 1-1.5 jam dari pusat kota Adelaide. Paling seru sih #lunch sambil nyobain berbagai macam wine dari berbagai #winery di sini, atau sekalian beli bawa pulang, harganya terjangkau (kalo dibandingin Indonesia yaiyalahya 🀣), misalnya ke Seppetsfield atau Pensfold πŸ’ƒ terus sambil road trip berhenti-berhenti buat foto gini πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ #LiveAwesome #LiveMoreSociety #DBSxKartupos #travel #visitaustralia #southaustralia Heart cracks open... From the upcoming #book: "27 days of heartbreak" by my talented friends:

Stella (@konnyaku) the writer. Marisa (@marzland), the illustrator.

SO PROUD OF YOU, GIRLS ❀

#the27days 
visit:
www.27daysofheartbreak.com 🌟🌟🌟 If you wanna try to #LiveSmart, for example: #traveling near and cheap for a quick #weekend getaway (esp. peeps in Jabodetabek in this case), Curug Barong in #Bogor can be one of the easy choices.

Lokasinya nggak terlalu jauh dari #Jakarta. Tinggal keluar tol Sentul dan mengarah ke Jungleland lalu belok kanan menuju Desa Babakan Madang, terus tinggal #offroad dan #trekking ke sana, deh. (won't take too long). Di jalan menuju ke sana jg banyak curug lainnya yg aksesnya bahkan lebih mudah, tapi gue suka si Curug Barong ini karena agak "pelosok," air super jernih, dan pemandangan ketika trekking baguuus 😍 Belum lg udara segernya. Biaya parkir dan biaya masuk curug jg nggak akan lbh dari 20rb. Kalo laper, ada warung mie instan murah meriah. πŸ’ƒ

TIPS: Kalo weekend lbh baik dtg pagi banget (jam 6an udh di sana) biar gak keburu rame, kalo #weekdays sih bisa siangan dikit. Jgn lupa jg tetep jaga kebersihan, krn kecenderungan turis lokal yg ke sana kdg msh suka buang sampah sembarangan di pinggir sungai πŸ‘Š #LiveKind and take care of our environment πŸ˜„
