A luxury resort in Bali, Indonesia

A Quick Tip by Sharrie

  • Nov 18, 2010
One of my favorite resorts in Bali. I have the fortune to visit it when it was first launched, back then in early 90s. The resort is not in the touristy areas of Bali, hence, it's far away from the maddening crowd. The best part of it is that it overlooks the ocean and with private pools in each of the beach houses. That was way too cool back then. Imagine, even today, the concept of having your own pools in your backyard and the visionary illusion of it stretching as far as the oceanI was totally awed!
