Pascy’s last day with us in Bali before his niece’s wedding and then heads back to Oz, so we have to go all out with a Balinese…Day of Indulgence. I can’t tell you how many times Fiona and I have ventured down some tiny side street or winding path only to discover, an amazing Balinese treasure. And today, was no different.
We decided we’d have a full day of spa treatments to really relax and unwind on our final day together, but the Spa we went to was booked out, so we wandered the streets until…a tiny sign, Breezes Resort and Spa, caught Fiona’s eye, pointing down a long and winding alley. We followed the yellow brick road which, unsurprisingly, led us to the wonderful land of Oz.
A beautiful spa situated right on the beach, with an incredible range of treatments and best of all, they could fit us in, right away! The next 4 hours was truly divine. A Balinese massage, body scrub, jacuzzi bath, facial and pedicure for the boys, and cream bath hair treatment, facial, manicure, pedicure, neck and shoulder massage for the beautiful girl. The rooms overlooked the beach, and the windows pulled open to let the ocean breeze in. A reflection pool outside the window and the methodical crash of the waves outside added to the majesty of the experience as we whittled our cares away.
After scooping us off the floor with a spatula, we headed across to Potato Head, which from an architectural point of view, was absolutely stunning. Like a giant Roman Coliseum constructed NOT, from ancient stone and columns, but thousands upon thousands of coloured wooden shutters of different shapes and sizes. Who even thinks to build a restaurant like that? The food was not too bad either, a little on the pricey side and it certainly was no Salt of the Earth, but delicious all the same.
One thing is for certain, Bali has another fan, and in just these few days, Pascy has already discovered how and why we love this island paradise, so much.
