What is The Rich Prada? well… its a name of a hotel in Pecatu,Bali. Every single time… before i fly to Bali, its an addicting habit to survey all the hotels in Bali and there you go i found The Rich Prada Hotel
The hotel is located like…. at the end of the world and when we arrive…. it was really quiet….. Do you know that kind of feeling where when you book the hotel its all seem perfect and nice?
Well… for this hotel its almost perfect?
This is what i mean… its not a new hotel and should i give a 5 star rating? where else in agoda they did gave a 5 star rating.
Good news! The morning view was breathtaking
Introducing Calico Peach Kebaya
Location: Hidden Gem in the hotel
What a good news…. after breakfast i kind a stumble upon this huge…. hall. I love the design of the door. To make it even better? The crafting of the door is similar to my pareo design!
My favourite? is the earrings! I just love the sweet flower covering almost all of my ear.
After walking through the beautiful door, keep on walking…. until the end… you will find this place.
Humongous flowers chandelier! if you want to find this place i suggest you ask the hotel staff as i stumble upon it. I would never thought this hall existed in this hugeeeee hotel.
Overall the hotel architecture and view is tremendous. The downside is the staff was not friendly at all and for a big hotel they need to hire more staff as its quite dusty.
Hello how are you? just as i promise wanna share with you the most affordable place to go to spa in Bali. You won’t believe your eyes when u see the place looks luxurious.
Body work spa located just at the side of the road, literally the entrance is at the side. When i first arrive at the place i assume it was a villa as it has a small entrance. When i walk in…. there were full of staff in turquoise kebaya everywhere…. so i thought to myself i am at the right place.
Let me describe you about the place.. as you walk in… there is a reception counter, usually it would be around four girls seating down at the table to offer you assistance. On the left there will be a saloon and on the right there would be a seating area with free drinks.
After browsing the brochure i have book myself a full body spa and manicure! yippie
Walking through the spa palace i see a beautiful garden, i couldn’t resist to take photos. Can you see the little door there? That is the room i have to step in to do the full body spa.
Ain’t it pretty?
Done with my body spa! i feel like a queen…. seriously? yea because the staff just showered me. I’ve never been showered before… only when i was like a kid? by my mom? Just visit the place and you understand what i mean.
Walking up the stairs to do my manicure.
What more can i say? great staff, good service, excellent ambience and well satisfied customer.
Hello peeps how are you doing? Why 11 days in Bali?
Its a special day and month for me as me and my friend has been planning this trip for a few months…… to celebrate my birthday which falls on November and what a coincidence for 11 days! get it?
Lets start off with the 1st day
Well we reached quite late so we didn’t able to take much photos.
This is my second time staying here as the price is reasonable. In addition they offer spa and menicure pedicure services. It is really convenient for us….. so that we don’t need to walk and search for others plus it save us a lot of time.
Sweet view ain’t it? If you are interested to know more about this hotel please click the link below:
There is a few Hotel Neo in Bali so be sure to click on this one! because its the best.
We head out about an hour drive to Ubud. Once we step out the car…… there was 2 ladies approaching us selling some sarong or a long cloth to cover our legs before stepping in the temple. The initial price they offer were expensive! luckily with some basic knowledge of Indonesian language…. we get about 60-70% off? Be sure to bargain with them. If you can’t bargain that much just bargain a little.
While walking down to this area….. there will be a few tour guides offering their services to tell the history of this place. Unfortunately we didn’t need their services because the place was not that big. We took a shortcut! Just eavesdrop others tour guides….. Basically…. inside the cave is just a small temple for prayers.
Caught this women just in time for her prayers. This is the Balinese women attire when comes to praying.
On the way down there is small lake
This tree has been around for thousands of years. Each body tree has a seed inside it. The seed represents the heart of the tree. It is being used to create medicine.
After a long walk at the Elephant cave, its time to head out for lunch
Smoked Salmon with Egg Toast
Avocado with Egg Toast
I was intrigue with the interior decoration so let me share with you some
Outdoor seating area
Entrance of the desserts, well it doesn’t look appealing but the desserts were superb.
Teddy Bear coffee
How adorable is that? hanging spoon?
A little heads up this restaurant is call ‘Monsieur Spoon’ and they have it a few in Bali so be sure to only visit in Ubud because it has the best interior decoration and their food is thumbs up!!!
I like the design of the restaurant because it reminds me of the village houses in Malaysia. Surprisingly the food is great.
The price i would say moderate around $5-$8 because the portion is a lot. This Warung Etnik is located at Kuta and really nearby Hotel Neo Kuta+Legian. Kuta is the main town area…
We did visiting to Elephant Cave on our second day, due to that it used up a lot of our time. My oh my Ubud! there were a lot of shops to shop! So we head up back to Ubud, to my suprise Ubud has a lot to offer from shopping, sightseeing and great food.
While walking from shop to shop…. we got lost? oh well stumble upon this statute… why not?
On the way back to town, we were able to capture this view such a magnificent view.
The most memorable day! its on my birthday so we head out for lunch at sisterfield.
We needed to digest our food as we were very full. We headed out to the opposite mall which is call ‘Seminyak Village’. Its only been a year since i long visit Bali and there is a new mall! The only mall that i have known in Seminyak is Seminyak square and now there is two malls, which are:
Butterflies christmas tree. I will never get bored with Balinese art they are such creative and talented people. Do check out the link of ‘Seminyak Village‘ you will be surprise the variety of brands they offer.
Well hello chica 😉
All that browsing around on what to shop? We just got tired and head out to desserts. It is…. my birthday right? 🙂
The bed is humongous! it was spacious enough for the two of us…. A reminder for parents who is bringing a long a kid? You guys can definitely fit on the bed….
The room is spa….cious and comes with a balcony. The toilet need a bit of fixing from the plumber as it got slight flooded. Other then that it is totally good. Your location is just smack in the middle of the mall,restaurants,bars,desserts cafe and etc. You name it you can literally walk around here and there Every….thing is convenient.
I hope i was able to give you guys a glimpse about Bali. If you have any questions regarding on other places to recommend or which hotels to stay or even anything. Please don’t be shy to drop by an email or you can just DM me straight on my instagram.
It all started 15 years ago, my parents had bring me to this gorgeous hotel. It was beautiful,fresh and the layout was in white. My favourite colour! Plus with a wood combination that delivers a warm ambience.
Not until recently i found out that the hotel name was Ayana resort and spa Ayana link
I have been dreaming to stay at this hotel and one fine day I choose Rimba hotel. It is like Ayana twin hotel. It is a humongous compound that is 90 hectare! The best part is RIMBA hotel has 4 pools and Ayana hotel has 4 pools too. I can just take a shuttle bus from RIMBA hotel to AYANA hotel when I’m bored with RIMBA hotel pools…..
Cool sitting area for a lobby right?
As you can see from the picture RIMBA hotel has a total of 4 pools
I’m in love with rooms that offer a direct pool access.
Really cute bath tub
YES! Pool access straight from the room. Oh my another pool? have you lost count how many pool there is in RIMBA hotel? I have a weakness for a room that have direct access to the pool
I took a shuttle bus to AYANA hotel. I was mesmerise by the beach view. This photo was taken from the top of the hill. Oh boy… I wasn’t ready to go all the way down to the beach. There is a stairs just below my camera but i wasn’t up for it that day.
I just hang out at the tree house cafe. The food was to die for it is really yummy. The ‘satay’ is the best i have ever tried in my life. The ‘nasi campur’ a mixture of rice and variety of gravy is delicious too! Before you go down to the beach you might wanna have a meal first up here. In addition to that the staff was really friendly and warm.
I do not want to go back because i have not use both of the hotel facilities! lol
Best red snapper i have ever tried. You know why? i do not like orange flavour mix with food but this… the taste was delicious!
If you have been following me you would have known that i am addicted to coffee! Surprisingly those cookies you see was delicious it just melted in my mouth. Not to hard and not to soft.
I highly recommend this place although it is pricey but you get to use both of the hotels facilities! In addition it is far from town and far from the hustle and bustle
Would you want to stay this hotel if you are in Bali?
What is kebaya? It is a tradition outfit where girls wear it for celebrating Eid Mubarak or Hari Raya. This type of outfit are usually worn by girls from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
Now lets zoom in….. I love the intricacy of the embroidery. Don’t you think its magnificent? The material is see through so i had to wear a black spaghetti strap.
After few days of Eid mubarak or Hari Raya we will go visiting to relatives houses. The elderly will give money in an envelope to the kids or to the children who are still studying. Sadly i don’t get anymore because i have started working. After a long day of visiting time for me to go for coffee!
Guess what i found? This lady is wearing batik! just like my long skirt! well… batik is the material name for my long skirt. Each batik has different patterns. For example you can see the batik material that the lady in the photo wearing it. Plus she made it to one suit. For your information i could make it like her in one suit too but i wanted to be a bit different so i get the top which is ready made and match it with my long skirt or batik as you call it.
Just like this!
I love love love Batik! The design of it and the mixture of colours is just beautiful.
