Wearing grey silk adorned in silver, I’m feeling girlier than ever.  It’s a refreshing change from my usual ‘comfort’ dressing yet these dresses are effortlessly chic.   French born, Bali based desinger brand Magali Pascal offers elegant, refined & feminine easy to wear pieces.  I have found a new love.

I’m very much into staple dressing, that one great dress, one great sweater and one perfect shirt.  Now that I have found the perfect skinny black jeans I haven’t taken them off, fitted down to the ankle, light weight and slightly stretchy… so comfy you could wear them to bed.

Explore the ‘other side’ of Bali, about a 30-40 min drive over the new (and visually stunning) bypass which takes your right over the ocean.  If you’re already in Jimaran it’s only a 15 minute drive from there.

The Bale
If your planning on splashing out for a few nights on your Bali trip, The Balé is the place to do it.  Being only 20min from the airport, it’s an easy start or end to your holiday with a stay at this luxury hotel.  Enjoy a welcome refreshing ginger mint soda on arrival at this tropical hillside resort.  As you sit in one of the comfortably cushioned pool huts, a host will consult you about your stay to ensure your time at the Bale is perfect, next you are shown to your room, or should I say palace. Each ‘room’ or villa, has it’s own private pool, a giant bed framed by palm trees through a glass window, bathtub, complimentary mini bar and a poolside pavilion with an equally large day bed where you can chill,  order a massage, read, daydream order breakfast (or any meal for that matter).  The hotel also has a wellness spa, hotel and two restaurants.
Address: Jalan Nusa Dua, Kuta Selatan, Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

Geger Beach
A white sand beach just outside of the Nusa Dua resort zone.  Here you will find local beach beds, restaurants and local ladies offering massages and small souvenirs (they are working for the local cooperative, supporting the locals) You can also hire paddle boards here but the water is quite choppy.
The Bale has their own beach club, it is walking distance from the resort however they also offer free transportation.  Cushioned deck chairs and deck service complete with chilled water & a view of the Geger Temple.

Pasifika Museum
Learn about the art of Bali, Stheast Asia and the Sth Pacific region.  With a mix of exhibitions of European born bali based and local painters, an indo-chinese exhibition aswell as the home to some artworks of well known artists.  Entry costs $7 and the museum is open from 10am-6pm Daily.
Blok P, BTDC Nusa Dua (near Bali Collection)

Bumbu Bali 1
A cultural experience of traditional Indonesian food can be found at this vegan-friendly Indonesian restaurant.  It offers the choice of vegetarian/vegan banquet (vegans need to specifcy no eggs) It’s best to make a reservation and the restaurant offers a pick up/drop off service.  The setting is an outdoors garden setting with low hanging lights and traditional decorations. Oh and the banquet includes desert!
Address: Jalan Pratama, Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia

Bali Buda

My favorite organic café in Bali has a mini location in the Butik! Stop by the shop for the organic bakery, tropical fruit & raw desserts.
Address: Jl Raya Uluwatu, Br Wanagiri, Nusa Dua, Badung Bali, Indonesia

Water Pilates
The bale offers a wellness menu which includes water pilates, yep combinding two of my favourite things turns out to be quite effective.  Using floatation equipment this flowing-water based workout uses core-stability to work on toning and definition, flexibility, strength and body awareness.

Yoga Day Spa
Another must-do on the wellness menu is the one-day set program of yoga practices (guided meditation, pranayama, and asanas) combined with healing massage at The Spa, or pool and sun bathing. Complete with wholesome vegetarian meals!

Nothing like a library right in the hotel lobby, books, magazins, CDs & dvds in a cute room with complimentary snacks at The Bale

Water Sports
Many companies in Nusa Dua offer water sports activities for around $20-30 expect to find local companies offer banana boat, parasailing, jetski and diving.  You can book with your hotel or directly at the beach in Nusa Dua or Tanjung Benoa.
