Who will resist good things with a good price right? =D
We stayed at Hard Rock Hotel Bali for 4 days. HRHB is a 4-star hotel. At first we opt for a 5-star hotel since it doesn't really cost us much. But most of the luxury hotels are located outlying the city itself and not in the heart of Bali, which is Kuta. They scattered along Nusa Dua, Sanur, Legian, Benoa and all. For those who intended to stay at super serenity places, those luxury hotels are just perfect for you.
Since that was our first time staying at Bali, we had chosen a Full Board package complete with a tourist guide. The good point of having a tour guide was we managed to go round all the wonderful places around Bali in a blink of an eye. Lucky us the tour guide was so friendly, competent and resourceful. They (2 of them) just knew what we want and where we wish to go. Plus they were hilarious too! Ooo.. I've started missing Bali now.. Huu.. Well, during the 4 days stay, we have went to (as far as I can remember):
- Uluwatu sunset tour - located at the level of 250 feet above sea level. We had a romantic sunset dinner at Jimbaran beach - we had it twice! :)
- Kintamani & Ubud tour - witnessed the traditional Barong and Kris Dance. Celuk village (famous of its gold and silver work), Mas village (a wood carving center) & Tempaksiring (the mysterious elephant cave)
- Bedugul & Tanah Lot sunset tour - visited the famous Beratan Lake Temple built in Eleventh Century.
Well the pictures speak for themselves =)
But frankly speaking I have no idea why they are so crazy about the Kuta beach. From my personal view, the beaches at Pulau Lang Tengah, Pulau Redang, Pulau Tioman, Pulau Langkawi and every hot spot beaches at Malaysia are wayyy beautiful compared to Kuta. Hmm.. Maybe the tourists love it because of the high and strong waves. Well the westerner loves ocean surfing right.
