Review: Brown Feather, Bali

Published by under Accommodation

twins

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

Review: Bungalow, Canggu

Published by under Food

bungalowcages

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

The Little Green Cafe, Bali

Published by under Food

spice

The Little Green Cafe is a favourite healthy spot of ours in Bali’s Seminyak area, serving up scrumptious salads and light vegan and vegetarian fare in a sunny and shaded courtyard. Sit at one of three tables in the small air-con shop area, where you can also pick up a small selection of healthy groceries … read the full post

Waterfalls around Munduk, Bali

Published by under Munduk

Looking down into the pit from the sensible steps.

Sitting astride a ridge that runs up to the northwestern rim of the Bedugul caldera, the small Balinese village of Munduk offers a healthy respite from the crowds and development that blight southern Bali. Placed along the ridge, many of the guesthouses and hotels in the village offer spectacular views to both the deeply forested … read the full post

Review: Warung Sulawesi, Bali

Published by under Food

food

Nothing is quite as humiliating as having another expat express incredulity about you not having visited a particular restaurant or sight. And so it was, chastised by another, that I sought out Warung Sulawesi (yes, worse — it’s very close to our base in Bali). Located on Seminyak‘s Jalan Petitenget, just a few hundred metres … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Medewi to Munduk

Just another day in Munduk.

You must be thinking this is the slowest drive of all time around Bali, but we’re getting there! From Medewi you have two options — continue east along the coast to Balian and beyond or veer inland. We’re going to opt for the latter and take a left turn at the main junction over the … read the full post

Mozaic Beach Club Lounge, Bali

Published by under Bars & nightlife

Ideal for practising underwater headstands.

Beach lovers who hate the inconvenience of the actual beach — the horrors of brushing sand off your feet, lack of loos, no cold beer — are spoiled for choice in Bali with plenty of “beach clubs” clambering for their business. These fancy, umbrella- and deckchair-clad bars skirt the beach, boast a pool and extensive … read the full post
