Published by under Food

If you’re in the mood for a perfect coffee in Bali, Revolver Boutique Coffee House, just off Jalan Laksmana, is where you need to head. Along with coffee, this urban-style cafe — yes hipster, even — serves up smoothies, delicious breakfasts and light lunches. The coffee is a house blend and it goes down smooth … read the full post

Deli Campur Asia is a breezy little cafe on Canggu’s burgeoning Jalan Pantai Berawa strip between the Canggu Club and Raya Canggu, offering a small but delicious range of Asian dishes with a Japanese emphasis, plus coffees and other good drinks. While you’re not going to cross the island to eat here, if you’re in … read the full post

Review: Kembang Kuning Ocean View Bungalows, Bingin, Bali

Published by under Bukit peninsula

Great for kids too.

One of the advantages of travelling with a four-year-old boy is he tends to leave a steady trail of toy matchbox cars on beaches here and there. On our recent travels through Flores in eastern Indonesia, the boy in question happened to leave a firetruck in the sand at Seraya Island. A day or so … read the full post

Review: United Colors of Bali

Published by under Accommodation

Colours around, and in, the pool.

If location close to the beach isn’t important to you during your trip to Bali, and you’d like a house but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a villa, the relatively new United Colors of Bali in Canggu makes for a top value choice of place to stay, offering cute two-bedroom houses surrounding a pool … read the full post

Watercress Cafe on Bali’s Jalan Batu Belig is the latest lovely addition to the island’s burgeoning healthy cafe scene. Set in an airy tiled building with beautiful shabby chic design touches, it makes a great pitstop for breakfast, lunch or coffee and for the wonderful quality and friendly service, prices are excellent.

Review: Brown Feather, Bali

Published by under Accommodation

Freshly-opened Brown Feather on Bali’s up-and-coming Jalan Batu Belig is the cutest little hotel we’ve seen in quite some time. With just 16 gorgeous, colonial-style rooms spread across two storeys, a paddy outlook and pool, it’s a great little place for those looking for something a bit different away from the crowds who are willing … read the full post

Review: Indotopia Warung Vietnam, Canggu

Published by under Food

coffee

While Indotopia Warung Vietnam & Indonesia in Canggu looks somewhat more glamorous than your average Bali warung, with pretty chairs and dangly things and a very clean, open kitchen, it’s not going to win any design awards. This is a simple, open-t0-the-street affair, with a basic garden courtyard at the rear. Decor doesn’t matter too … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Munduk to the Organic Farm

Oh so pretty.

You could easily give Munduk a day or three and spend your time visiting nearby waterfalls, taking ricefield walks or just enjoying the view, but eventually you’ll need to move on and while there are a number of options from Munduk, we’re going to continue our drive around Bali heading east through a caldera and … read the full post

Set in a gorgeous space — Bali meets Morroco meets shabby chic — new combined homewares shop and cafe Bungalow in Bali’s Canggu is a great stop for a coffee and browse for a tasteful Bali souvenir. Either as an atmospheric cafe alone or as a shop selling interesting curios it would be worth a … read the full post

A room with a view… in Bali’s Munduk

Published by under Munduk

Another budget view, this time from Taman Ayu.

Bali can be really beautiful when it wants to be. While in heavily touristed Ubud and the southern beaches, a room with a view has become an expensive room with a view, but off in Munduk in Bali’s central heartland, the views are still delivered free of charge just for making the effort to visit … read the full post
