We usually try to wait for a joint to have been open for a little while before checking it out, but with bright, bold Motel Mexicola in Seminyak, Bali, we just had to stop by. Go on, you walk past the above and try to not go inside! It’s a riot of ebullient, joyful colour, … read the full post

Indonesian volcanoes: Visiting Gunung Kelimutu, Flores

Published by under Flores

Swirling souls at Kelimutu.

While many first-time visitors to Flores get little further than the port town of Labuan Bajo and its immediate surrounds, one of the highlights of Flores is the peak of Kelimutu which lies to the northeast of Ende and offers fabulous views of the surrounds. Best of all? You don’t need to be a mountaineer … 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

Meet Flores

Published by under Flores

No I didn't walk all the way to the end.

We’re exploring the Indonesian islands of Flores, Komodo, Rinca and a few others over the next two weeks and our initial reaction was along the lines of, “Why didn’t we get off our bums and come here earlier?” And we’ve only been on Flores for a night… The waters surrounding the western end of Flores … read the full post

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
