The Santai Bali is a paradise, we arrived and left once in the entire 5 days we were there. The house is massive, a big lounge with a dining room and kitchen (that we never used obviously), the bedroom was cosy and you could open the doors and walk straight into the pool! Pretty good right? Well it gets better, the bathroom is half in half out meaning you get to shower outside, an amazing feeling when you know no-one can see you! The pool area is awesome, like your own little slice of heaven.
Now to the main event, the food! I can’t explain how much I ate. I know I know, pigging out with your new husband is clearly the most awesome way to start your honeymoon! Let’s start with breakfast, the banana pancakes are amazing, so is the banana and coconut porridge and they have all the smoothies you can drink, lunch is just as amazing with plenty of choices but please if you go try the cashew nut hummus it’s AMAZING. Dinner we opted to have by the pool most nights, they bring candles and set everything up so it’s super romantic, and tasty, did I mention tasty?
The staff are so welcoming and lovely, the best part was they were full of helpful tips about our trip, nightlife, beaches, temples, they had all the info and were more than happy to share. We went to most of the places they suggested and we were not disappointed. They also recommended a Balinese massage and we ended up having three they were so relaxing, I have never felt so pampered in my life.
The Santai Bali started our honeymoon trip off perfectly, 5 days of solitude with my love in our own personal Nirvana.
