PERMACULTURE ACTIVITIES AT DESA VISESA UBUD BALI

PERMACULTURE ACTIVITIES AT DESA VISESA UBUD BALI - If you like to fill the activities into your Ubud schedule, my suggestion is to check Desa Visesa Ubud. A huge resort with the village life, rice fields, organic gardens, farms, this would be a perfect place for you to experience the life of Balinese people (I can say, most of the Indonesian locals such as in Java, Sumatra do similar daily activities). This Permaculture let you experience to honor the past traditions into a memorable experience of Visesa Nature.

While enjoying my morning coffee at the restaurant, I saw two cows crossing by, ready to do their daily activity on the pre-cultivate rice field. This is interesting because if you a traveler that wants to experience the life of Balinese local but in 5 stars rate ways, Desa Visesa Ubus is the place that you need to keep in mind can provide the extra experience, at least close to the authentic one.

After some relaxing time by the pool where the staff pampered me with 30 minutes of "pool pampering", I decided to have some lunch at Warung Tani, where I can enjoy some of fresh made grilled prawns and chicken with some healthy smoothies, overlooking their garden as the view. I thought to myself if I can experience how the locals do their daily activities.

So basically the activities starting every 8 AM every day, you can ask the concierge what kind of activities you want, from Nature Trekking to Village Cycling, from Animal Caring to Yoga Sun Salutation. Desa Visesa Ubud provides you with such amount of activities, I can say 2 nights stay won't be enough to experience all of them.

Permaculture Course scheduled to start at 3 PM, start with Cultivating, Seeding/Nursery, Planting, Maintaining, Harvesting, and even cow feeding, playing with the roosters, gooses, and ducks go back to their huts. What an experience at Desa Visesa Ubud. I don't know if it will be applicable in your home country, but if you travel with friends or families, this educational travel would be amazing yet different one than others, it would be great for children though to feel another culture and experience it.

Permaculture is the development of agriculture ecosystem to rules that aim at farming land in complete sustainability and self-sufficiency. Visesa has developed a vast protected area whereby sustainable farming values are supported with extensive permaculture gardening and rice fields traditional cultivation. Various fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices are homegrown to support the resort with fresh local produce.

Any other experience you can try besides Permaculture, of course, Yoga and other wellness activities, specially made brought to you to experience the maximize your wellbeing. Advance Yoga such as Antigravity, Chakra, Vinyasa, Ayanger & Mud Yoga can be set up, also with Balinese Healing, where you can consult your concern to the local healer or we called it Balian (if you have watched the movie Eat, Pray, & Love when the leading actor meet with Ketut Liyer, well sort of like that)

To see what kind of energies that blocking you, mix with natural herbs approach to make your good vibes flows back to its nature. This is one thing what I like about Bali especially Ubud, this is the place to charge and cleanse your spirit. The Healing philosophy based on an authentic Bali Usada principle, a traditional knowledge for curing ailments with the use of Taru Pramana medicinal plants, herbs, and spices. Experience a private consultation with a renowned Balinese Healer that draws power from nature or spirits and create medicine from holy water, flowers, and plants plus enjoy the treatments from natural ingredients that blend harmoniously into masks and scrubs that come directly from Desa Visesa's Permaculture Gardens.

Are you up into some natural, sustainable travel experience to recharge your wellbeing and spirit back to the track at Desa Visesa Ubud? I said YES

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.

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
