BEST WESTERN Premier Hotel Royal Santina
We decided to go to Bali to celebrate our 1st Year Wedding Anniversary as well as Valentine’s Day. So, I searched for travel packages and other travel agencies for the right package for us.
I chanced upon Expedia.com.sg and it gave me rates that are very reasonable and right for our budget. I booked a two-way Air Asia flight for Doms and I and a 3 night stay at Aston Kuta Hotel and Residences with buffet breakfast.
Our flight was scheduled to leave at 9:20 AM (16 Feb 2012). As always, we were early so we decided to eat breakfast first. Boarding time came and to my surprise, more than half of the passengers in the plane were blondes either from Australia or UK. Bali is really the place to be if you want to see ang-mho’s!
Ngurah Rai International Airport
Our 2 hours and 30 minutes flight was so fast I didn’t notice it. When we arrived Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, the first thing that I saw was the ancient pillars to the entrance of the airport.
After immigration, we met with or dear driver Dewa. Drop me a comment here if you like the contact number of Dewa. He drove us to our hotel in Aston Kuta. It was very near the airport so it was just OK.
We checked in already as soon as we arrive the hotel but we were not allowed to go to our room untile 2:00 pm. So we ate our late lunch first.
Our Aston Kuta Hotel
Doms ordered Beef Rendang and I ordered Beef with Pepper Sauce. The Rendang was great and the Beef Pepper rice was to die for!
so after lunch, we went staright to our room to check it out. It was great pool view! The sheets were nice and the room was cold. The toilet has a cute design and we really love it! Photos to follow!
We ate dinner at Poppies. Photos to follow.
I’m really excited about Bali trip this coming 16 to 19 February. I’ve been on a hunt for a good driver who could pick us up from Denpasar Airport to our hotel, Aston Hotel.
I got one driver, Dewa and he seems nice enough in email that he replies. So, we will probably get him to drive us around.
