Embracing the island spirit ♡

Stepping foot onto this tropical retreat, I immediately dozed off into it's beauty. The first words that literally came out of my mouth were "We saved the best for last" as it was our last stop in Bali. 

Skies were blue, birds were singing, and the scent of nature and ocean made it feel like home.

Every moment spent here were memories to cherish.

How did I ever get so lucky?

Clearly not happy to be here . . .

Looking for a place to party? Sadly, this won't be the right villa for you. However, if you're looking for a spot to relax and rejuvenate, this villa will be the perfect place for your vacation. Listen to the calm waves, feel the breeze gently caress your skin and inhale the aroma of frangipani and jasmine, while reading a book under the shaded palm trees on a hammock. Enjoy the peaceful scenery, as it will surely heal your soul.

Ice cream solves everything...

Their house made Ice Cream & Sorbet was to DIE for. 

I had the honor of trying the chocolate, matcha (green tea) and coconut / pandan ice cream, which were all amazing. However, I must say that the Strawberry Mint sorbet was my absolute favorite! It was so refreshing and I never wanted it to end.

 

Having late night sugar cravings?

Not to worry, they have room service. (I'm guilty) ☺

I could get use to this . . .

Seriously though... is this real life?!

Butler service was definitely the game changer and cherry on top. I had the loveliest gentleman take care of me during my stay at Belmond Jimbaran and his name was Sukra. He wasn't just a butler who "served me" he was there mentally and physically taking care of me while I was very sick. I had terrible "Bali Belly" for days and severe heat rash. Not to be dramatic or anything, but I honestly thought I was dying at one point and he was there to pretty much rescue me. The staff were constantly checking up on me and did everything they could to make sure that I was okay. It was very sweet and heartwarming and i'll never forget that. 

Thank you to the incredible staff for their kind hearts and perfect service.

Forever grateful.

Late night room service anyone?  If you guys follow me on Instagram and watched all of my Bali travel stories, I wasn't lying when I said I was on an all carb diet...   After having terrible Bali belly for several long days, I finally got my appetite back and decided to order off the kids menu because I was having issues finishing my adult portions haha. Needless to say, the speghetti was bomb.  It was really nice to have some western food after eating so much traditional Balinese food!  Spaghetti, bread basket, french fries and ice cream. (time to hit the gym)
