DELUXSHIONIST CHECK IN TO THE MULIA BALI, THE BIGGEST RESORT & VILLAS COMPLEX IN NUSA DUA
View from the lobby at The Mulia Resort & Villas, Nusa Dua, Bali

CHECK IN TO THE MULIA BALI, THE BIGGEST RESORT & VILLAS COMPLEX IN NUSA DUA - After Malang trip, I went to Surabaya before Bali... and got so excited to visit The Mulia Bali Resort & Villas, why? I remember back in 2012 I went to Nusa Dua, I have been visited a private estate of the owner of Gc Watches to do some interview, I passed the huge resort development and it was The Mulia Bali and 6 years later, I have stayed at this huge gorgeous hotel, resort, & villas complex in Nusa Dua and stunned with the beauties. I do some research because, because when I googled the logo of it's resort; there's The Mulia Resort & Villas and The Mulia Bali. At first, I thought it was the same, but like I said earlier this complex of hotel and resort is Huge, of course, that both different names mean something, in fact, yes they're different.

Although they're both in one huge complex of hotel & a resort in Nusa Dua, the simple difference between two properties, they have their own facilities, such as a different lobby, restaurant, pool, so many types of rooms. But if you are staying at The Mulia Bali Resort & Villas it's closer for the guest to the more restaurants, bars, and pools. I mean it's amazing, while I stayed in Signature Ocean Court Room on 6 floors, I can see the view of the center of the resort into the main lobby, the courtyard pool with amazing green all over the place, and even private pool on the lower floor if you wish to choose the room with private room.

DELUXSHIONIST CHECK IN TO THE MULIA BALI, THE BIGGEST RESORT & VILLAS COMPLEX IN NUSA DUA
What's the difference between The Mulia Bali and The Mulia Resort &Villas?

I arrived in Bali like more 3 than hours late, because of the "busy" Juanda International Aiport in Surabaya. Even though I was not catching a connecting flight or have an important business meeting, it's still a madness. But thanked God, though I was late that day, the airport staff of The Mulia Bali greet me amazingly, also the check-in staffs at the hotel. The slightly salty beach air welcoming my arrival, smooth check-in, free drink voucher, and I closed the day with all you can eat buffet at The Cafe. Although it was not supposed to be a long flight, just forget it, all those grilled meats and fresh seafood look fantastic.

The next morning was pretty magical, the staffs ready to set up everything for the guests, some people were already on the beach including me, some of them is catching the sunrise while the others were playing with their children or do some jogging. Shortly after, Oceanfront Pool was living the sunbathing realness, but remember there's another pool that you can enjoy at the resort, from the courtyard pool with a swim-up bar to the children’s splash pool or the private cabana pools with poolside treats.

Wedding Chapel No.2 with its own gorgeous artificial lake (for the good water energy and vibes)

My impression of this huge complex of hotel & resort was beyond, no wonder people choose The Mulia Bali Resort & Villas to enjoy the holidays with big families, celebrate a wedding, even they have massive artificial lakes, the kids club that bigger than main pool in Kuta and dipping on a different pool every single day with excellent cleanliness and maintenance. I am so proud that this Indonesian brand can deliver such an amazing world-class property.

DELUXSHIONIST TRAVEL - HOW TO GET TO BAWAH ISLAND PRIVATE ISLAND

HOW TO GET TO BAWAH ISLAND PRIVATE ISLAND - For me, escape to Bawah Island Private Island is the ultimate luxury experience meets nature at its finest. You can have your time peacefully when you live in this gorgeous pristine mini archipelago, away from everything you hates from city life.

Geographically, Bawah Island is indeed isolated even from the nearest town of Tarempa in Anambas Regency which was before seaplane, it will take 7 hours speedboat ride, so you can imagine how to get here if there's no seaplane operated from Hang Nadim International Aiport in Batam.

So if I can put my timeline here, you will start your journey in Singapore (or Batam);
7:00 AM (Singapore Time): You will be picked up by luxury limo at your door (home, apartment or hotel) or Changi Airport and head to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal  

8:20 AM (Singapore Time): You will spend approximately 30-45 minutes ferry ride from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in Singapore to Batam Center in Indonesia, Batam Center is shopping center and you will be helped with all immigration things there before you meet with Bawah Island Staff (I met with Ms. Vio) who will escort you by car to Hang Nadim International Airport, it will be a short 20 minutes journey

9:30 AM (Indonesia Time): Singapore is 1-hour advance timezone different than Indonesia so you will be escorted to check-in your baggage to AirFast (max 15kg/person include hand baggage), and you will have time to wait, for coffee at boarding room before taking off with a seaplane (approximately 70 minutes direct flight to the islands)

11:00 AM (Indonesia Time): You will be in your private air-conditioned room, with welcome drinks and Bawah Staff explain everything, but Bawah Island has their own time zone, so it will practically 12:30 PM Bawah Time and the lunch for you is on its way at The Treetops Restaurants.

DELUXSHIONIST INTERCONTINENTAL ROBERTSON QUAY HOTEL SINGAPORE

CHECK IN AT INTERCONTINENTAL ROBERTSON QUAY HOTEL SINGAPORE - First and foremost, this newly open InterContinental Robertson Quay Hotel is second InterContinetal Hotel that's operating in Singapore, different with its sister InterContinental Hotel in Bugis Area, this one is more contemporary, modern chic & residential vibes compared with Bugis one which is more classic & vibrant, but there are a couple things that I really like from this InterContinental Robertson Quay Hotel Singapore, what's all of that? Read more below...

1 Nanson Rd, Singapore 238909


The Location
I think it's kinda fresh for me to choose another area in Singapore besides Orchard or Marina, and InterContinental Robertson Quay is located next to the Singapore River and Clarke Quay area, it is amazing when the night comes. You can easy strolling around and enjoy the ambiance, it's pretty far from the nearest MRT which is Fort Canning (that I barely can't find, and we take MRT at Clarke Quay) but if you love to walk, enjoy the night at the cafes beside the river, this is the ultimate destination and I loved it

The Ambience
There are some new hotels open in this area and I can see why. You can feel like as a residence in the upper-class area in Singapore, that's why is easy to look for a brunch spot if you like jogging or bicycling around the neighborhood is very friendly for that activity, and as visitors, you want to feel like you belong in the area, but not too "locals", because there are so many expats here that I assume working in Singapore and residing in the area. Moreover, there are tons of chic cafes you can try while you here, even there are five restaurants & bars near InterContinental Robertson Quay Singapore for your dining experience; Publico Ristorante an Italian Resturant, Publico Deli, Matsu, Ishi Japanese Restaurant, & Marcello Italian Bar

The Club Privileges
If you are an IHG Club member, of course, you can enjoy an access to Club InterContinental where you can chill and hang out with free flow drinks and small bites, canapes, you can take all of them to your table while doing your things, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails even breakfast. So this is an amazing deal for Club Member

The Small Details
Small details like upgrades, in-room welcome drink, turn down service, not only coffee & tea, even you can make your own cocktails (if you need it, you can make any time you want, there's even step-by-step manual pocketbook to make your drinks).

The studio room is yes quite packed, but the most important for me is my quality of sleep and the food, but if you need more spaces, you can book their suites room that comes with its own bathtub. That's all that I love about Intercontinental Robertson Quay Hotel Singapore, besides its new hotel, you can feel another ambiance of Singapore and blend with residential vibes.

"Today, the neighbourhood – located on the largest and most upstream of Singapore’s historical wharfs – has been transformed into a cosmopolitan district of al fresco restaurants, specialty stores and quaint caf├ęs. Drawing inspiration from the area, the hotel’s design blends elements from Robertson Quay’s industrial past with sleek contemporary finishes, complemented with outdoor terraces that overlook the Singapore River. Explore the area on foot or on one of our hotel bicycles. Better yet, pay homage to the days when goods were ferried from local ‘godowns’ (warehouses) to the harbour by embarking on a traditional bumboat cruise to see the city from along the river. At the end of the day, relax in our outdoor pool, de-stress in our 24-hour gym, or simply enjoy a glass of wine and classic Italian fare amidst spectacular views at Publico, a lively dining and entertainment destination – just one of our five dining options. We look forward to offering you an unforgettable experience at InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay." - InterContinental Robertson Quay Hotel Singapore
DELUXSHIONIST TRAVEL THE BEST AIRPORT HOTEL CROWNE PLAZA CHANGI SINGAPORE

THE BEST AIRPORT HOTEL CROWNE PLAZA CHANGI SINGAPORE - It's been a year since the last time I am in Singapore, never thought that I will stay in an Aiport Hotel even in Singapore but my last trip to Bawah Island made me do it. Because I need to be ready on 7 AM and no flights to Singapore from Jakarta can be that early, I need to be in Singapore at least a night before, and Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport definitely the best choice to layover, because the distance between Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Aiport to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in no time (well you know Singapore traffic is friendly compare with Jakarta! Okay that's not fair comparison)

CROWNE PLAZA CHANGI AIRPORT
75 Airport Boulevard, #01-01, Singapore 819664


What I like about, Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport is:

1. Direct Access from Terminal 3
They have direct access from Terminal 3, so there's no need taxi ride, shuttle ride even longer walk. So after immigration in T3, exit left and in no time there's access to the lobby lounge of Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi.

2. Room with Runway View
It's probably gonna be one unique staying experience where the room view your hotel room is one of the busiest runway on the planet, Changi Airport, Singapore and it would be lovely for you aviation geek and lover to stay at this room. You can see and take a shoot of the most amazing planes that landing and take off from your cozy and luxury hotel room.

3. They Have Separate Building for Business Room
If you are kinda tired and wants to be a hermit while staying at Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi, I suggest booking a Business room for you. Because they're on the other side of the building that quieter and perfect if you just want to feel the vibes that warmer and packed with the spaces, especially if you want total stillness to finish some job and don't want so many distractions (but you if you are Club member, you should definitely try to enjoy Club Lounge with its perks) but if you want bigger spaces, the premier room with runway view or pool access is right for you.

4. Join the Club IHG to enjoy the perks
The perks if you join the Club, of course, you can get the club privileges this is what I love the most. From afternoon tea and evening cocktails in the club lounge, where you can relax and enjoy your time, do your thing with small bites and free flow drinks.

5. Remember that you are still in Changi Aiport Area
It was my first time staying at Changi and it was my first time too, try to get to the city center by MRT (because everytime I in Singapore, I always get the cab to the city center for a practical reason). So, of course, there's a access to MRT. shopping and food center.

Or if you're not stay here but have sometimes especially in the morning, after you landed from somewhere far or even on breakfast time at 06.30 AM, and want buffet breakfast because you are so hungry like crazy, go to Terminal 3 Changi Airport, pass through the lobby lounge to the second floor where the restaurant will be ready to assist you with your request, because I see some business traveler come here only to have a breakfast and absolutely want some quality and great ambience not like at the food court.


6. World's Best Airport Hotel for 4 consecutive years by Skytrax

Yes, no wonder that Crowne Plaza awarded by Skytrax at The World Aiport Award for their achievement to provide quality and service. From the second you enter the lobby, check-in, the room, the ambiance of the hotel, the wellness concept also quality of sleep, bath amenities, cleanliness, coziness, quality of fresh food, quality of service from the team that help you a lot (especially me, after a long walk at the city center and we bought some food outside and want to reheat at the hotel, they're ready to help you)

Easy access from the airport, to the public transport, to the ferry terminal, even if you have connecting early flight to another city. I recommend you to have an amazing layover at Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Aiport.
