    Grand Aston Resort Benoa

    February 7, 2014 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    What an awesome place to stay...beautiful, large suite, great views into the resort and to sea, fabulous pool where we spent hours and hours (complete with in-pool bar & happy hour!). Would go back in a heartbeat...

    Gleich geht es zum Schiff

    November 2, 2015 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Letztes Mittagessen Hotel, eine sehr schöne Anlage.

    Das geschrottete Iphone haben wir dann nun auch verkraftet und die wichtigsten Dinge auf das neue Ipad geladen. Heute Vormittag gab es dann noch eine Schrecksekunde, als das zweite Iphone plötzlich den Betrieb einstellte. Das läuft nun aber wieder. Wir brauchen die Telefone ja auch zur Navigation, daher ist das schon unglücklich.Read more

    Brütende Hitze

    November 1, 2015 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    So ein Klima habe ich noch nicht erlebt. Ich liege im Vollschatten unter dem riesigen Strohschirm und es ist heiß! Wahnsinn!
    Sehr schön hier, aber auf Dauer wäre mir das zu heiß. Besichtigungen fallen dementsprechend auch aus. Wir haben ausgetempelt😁

    Singapore Day 2 + Bali Day 1

    April 24, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    It was hard to say goodbye to the amazing Marina Bay Sands hotel this morning, but alas I had only booked one night this time around. Before leaving I had a nice walk all around the marine area, where I saw some other fancy hotels and the historic Fullerton hotel. It’s definitely an interesting city. Everything is very clean and pristine, especially inside the fancy shopping center at Marina Bay Sands. The floor was so clean you could have eaten your dinner off it!

    Speaking of eating - I had lunch (fish & chips) at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant Bread Street Kitchen which was also very good. Great service from staff - otherwise I’m sure Ramsey would scream at them. I even got a cookie (or a whole jar full of them actually) when I had finished lunch.

    By the way, this was the second time in as many days that I chose the fish. Normally not a big fan; maybe because the fish at work back home is shit 😀

    At Singapore’s Changi airport I was also treated to free snacks and the airport has various green areas - one featured a small pool with colorful fish (first time on this trip I saw a fish that didn’t end up in my belly).

    It has been named the best airport in the world several times in a row, and I can definitely see why.

    If Changi is the best, Bali’s airport might be the worst. Flying there from Singapore only took two hours, but after arrival you have to endure 3 lines before you can leave: first immigration, then customs and finally you get your bag scanned which is quite unusual at arrival! They also had drug-sniffing dogs around that passed by the same line maybe 4 times. After getting out of that whole performance, you are met by screaming taxi drivers trying to win customers. Charming.

    When getting to the hotel, the car (an official hotel shuttle) was scanned for bombs. They definitely don’t fuck around with security here! It took me five minutes to get out of the airport in New York the last time I was in the US.

    Anyway, I finally got to the hotel - the luxurious five star Conrad where I was upgraded (for free, yay) to a large suite with a view of the garden. I also paid to upgrade my last night of the 3 night stay to a Pool Villa. More on that later!

    Bali Day 2

    April 25, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    First full day in Bali! I started off with some breakfast in the main restaurant - a good buffet with lots of choices.

    After that I went on a walk in the Nusa Dua area to check out the beach, and some of the many other hotels close by. There are some big brands concentrated around here, like The Westin and the Grand Hyatt. Many of the hotels are pretty amazing, with big pools and swanky beach bars.

    Unfortunately my own hotel is currenly undergoing a massive renovation, so about half the property is shut down. This includes the main pool that they are famous for, and a couple of restaurants. The hotel is still nice, but will definitely be quite a different experience when renovations are done.

    Until then, their spa pool is open which is really awesome. I hung out there for a few hours and had some lunch, served right by the pool of course.

    Later I visited the Suites Lounge where they offer free snacks and cocktails between 5 and 7 in the evening, so naturally I had a few of those :)

    Tomorrow I move into the Pool Villa which should be fun!

    Bali Day 3

    April 26, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Pretty quiet day. After breakfast I hung out by the Spa pool for a bit. Had a nice cocktail and some spring rolls. Having food and drinks served by the pool never gets old!

    In the afternoon I moved into my new “room” - a pool villa! It’s actually a little house, complete with a bedroom, large bathroom and a nice outdoor area with a small pool and even an outdoor tub. There’s also a little garden with palm trees and everything. It was a bit too expensive to stay in this villa for all three nights, but I figured it would be fun to try it out for just one day.

    In the early evening I went to the lounge again for more free cocktails and snacks. It’s a nice benefit of staying in one of their more expensive rooms!

    Tomorrow I move to a different hotel - more on that later!
