SPA AT MONTIGO RESORT NONGSA ON DELUXSHIONIST TRAVEL

SPA AT MONTIGO RESORT NONGSA - The indicator that you have been passed through a successful spa in luxury way has always about the feel, atmosphere and of course the therapist. I was quite surprise that Montigo Resort Nongsa kept the taste of traditional style type of natural decoration with bamboo, dry leaf roof and concrete pool & Jacuzzi.

I was quite enjoy the treatment that night, yes actually I had done the treatment at night and then went to grab a dinner at Pantai restaurant. Anyway, the treatment was pretty good, but the thing is they got the essentials massage oil which is creates particular sensation according you need, weather you want feel relax, sensual or even more energize... your call.

But the experience came from my friend, that he's actually cooperated with his therapist to achieved the great result of the treatment. So during the treatment, he have been told to inhale, exhale, hold breath etc... hmmm that's so interesting because most of the time I always fall asleep in every spa treatment.

MY IDEAL JAPANESE WINTER VACATIONThis is my… I lost track how many times I try to go to Japan for a free vacation lol but let's try again. Then one question came to my inbox, it was like “What’s your Ideal Japanese Winter Vacation?”
When I heard a word Japan, there are 10 things that came to my mind
  • 1.    Cool simple design & crazy fashion
  • 2.    Great transportation
  • 3.    Ramen & Sushi
  • 4.    Hot Spring and traditional natural Onsen
  • 5.    Snow & Mount Fuji
  • 6.    Great palace & temple
  • 7.    Zen Garden
  • 8.    Everything in Kyoto
  • 9.    Everything in Tokyo
  • 10 Comme des Garcons … I can buy everything from Rei Kawakubo's creations

But I wonder what if you add word winter season on it. It’s going to be tricky because maybe there are some places that covered by snow at winter… yes it’s mean that you going to be Playing with snow, eat a delicious extra hot & spicy ramen, visiting Palace & temple, ride the great shinkansen, practice traditional way of tea drinking, enjoy yourself soaking at Onsen (natural hot spring), see the legendary snow monkey, shopping in Tokyo and etc. Is it even possible with only a couple days?

Let’s we just says that this is 5 days 3 nights itinerary


Once time you arrived at Narita or Haneda; I will go to Gala Yuzawa, Niigata at Joshinetsu Region
All you need to do is take the Narita Express to Tokyo station. This will whisk you there in only 53 minutes, or 30 minutes by the Tokyo Monorail from Haneda Station. At Tokyo station, follow signs for the Joetsu Shinkansen [Platforms 20-23] and take the train named Max-Tanigawa or Tanigawa.
Tokyo station to GALA Yuzawa station is very convenient and stress-free. *The fastest Joetsu Shinkansen will get you there in just 77 mins.* Yippie!!!

It’s all about playing snow, skiing, everything snow along with Tokamachi Snow Festival also in Niigata. For me, it’s going to be my first time and it could be all day long


Back to Tokyo and Go to Kawazu at Kamo District
I believe the night will be colder if it’s possible to stay near Gala Yuzawa, or back to Tokyo, look for Japanese style hot pot for dinner (let's say) at The Conrad Tokyo in the Shiodome area at its Japanese Restaurant, Kazahana, tam-tam ramen in Shibuya or Spicy Yuzu Ramen from Afuri in Ebisu (need extra hot and spicy because it's cold right?)  and stay for 1 night and the next morning ready to go to… Kawazu... Kawazu is a town located on the east coast of Izu Peninsula in Kamo District, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.

Japanese Style Hot Pot


Tokyo to Kawazu by Train
Tokyo Station (Odoriko or Super View Odoriko) - Kawazu Station approx. 2hrs 35min
Tokyo Station (bullet train Kodama: approx. 55min) - Atami Station (Ito line / Izu kyuko line: approx. 1hr 20min) - Kawazu Station approx. 2hrs 15min

For the late winter or early spring, this is the place for Onsen or Hot Spring. There are seven characteristic hot spring baths in the Kawazu area. (Imaihama Onsen, Kawazuhama Seaside Onsen, Yatsu onsen, Mine Onsen, Yugano Onsen, Odaru Onsen, Nanadaru Onsen.) Even in Japan, it is rare to have 7 hot spring baths in one area, and the fact that each hot spring bath in the area has its own characteristic makes this a popular hot spring spot even in Japan. We have hot spring baths with sea views and also hot spring baths with mountain views. Also, will explore and haunting everything about cherry blossoms and Wasabi Tororo Soba at Kadoya near to Amagisou.

Otaru Onsen

Wasabi Tororo Soba at Kadoya near to Amagisou

Back to Tokyo and enjoy the short trip back and forth


Mount Fuji is definitely a timeless destination for everyone when visiting Japan. "At 3,776 meters, Mt. Fuji is the highest peak in Japan. Perpetually covered by snow, its beautiful form has captivated people since ancient times and is revered and loved as a symbol of Japan. Among the works of notable Japanese ukiyo-e painter, Katsushika Hokusai is the series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," which capture the beautiful shape of the mountain, a symbol of Japan loved by people of all ages.
With the goal of reaching the highest point in Japan, many visits in summer to climb Mt. Fuji. During the mountain-climbing season from July 1 to the beginning of September, the slopes bustle with people from around Japan and around the world.

Around the base of Mt. Fuji are five lakes. One, in particular, Lake Kawaguchi, provides many excellent viewpoints for gazing at the mountain. In 2013, Mt. Fuji was inscribed on the World Heritage List. Enjoy the beautiful scenery that Mt. Fuji provides. It's not that far away."

I can not decide whether is enough time to visit everything in Japan in limited time, but of course, I also think about Jigokudani Monkey Park, Shirakawa-go Farm Village and another Onsen like HAKONE HOT SPRING... I think I need an extra time;p

Jigokudani Monkey Park

Jigokudani Monkey Park (地獄谷野猿公苑 Jigokudani Yaen Kōen) is in YamanouchiShimotakai DistrictNagano PrefectureJapan at 36°43′58″N 138°27′46″E. It is part of the Joshinetsu Kogen National Park (locally known as Shigakogen) and is located in the valley of the Yokoyu-River, in the northern part of the prefecture.

Shirakawa-go Village in Winter
Shirakawa (白川村 Shirakawa-mura?) is a village located in Ōno DistrictGifu PrefectureJapan. It is best known for being the site of Shirakawa-gō, a small, traditional village showcasing a building style known as gasshō-zukuriThe village is located near Takayama, in Gifu. Together with Gokayama in Nanto, Toyama, it is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.

I mean so many to explore, even in winter Japan amaze me with its natural beauty and yes you can check all you bucket list during your trip in Japan, for winter you can choose which can fit your schedule and Interest. I really can't imagine because I want to visit them all, I can't even explain here because I am "write-less" seeing Japan only from pictures, I wish I can visit Japan and I would love to share my experiences; from Ski at Gala Yuzawa, all those Festival in Aomori Prefecture, and Onsen Onsen Onsen will never enough because I am Pisces;p.. But all things possible with JR East 5 Days 3 Nights (1 Night Gala Yuzawa, 1 Night Kuzawa, 1 Night Tokyo :) #DeluxshionistGoToJapan
Gala Yuzawa
Gala Yuzawa merupakan salah satu tempat yang direkomendasikan bagi para turis yang ingin merasakan kegembiraan liburan musim dingin di Jepang. Ski resort ini hanya berjarak 77 menit dengan shinkansen dari stasiun Tokyo. Mencapai “snowy wonderland” ini tidak perlu mengganti kereta karena dengan shinkansen bisa langsung tiba di Gala Yuzawa Ski Resort. Jadikanlah Gala Yuzawa sebagai salah satu tujuan wisata kamu apabila berlibur ke Jepang.

Wedding in Bali - Deluxshionist Luxury Fashion & Lifestyle Bridestory
Bali Wedding at Alila Villa Uluwatu

How does it feel to get married in Bali? A million dollar questions for every single girl who want a perfect dream wedding once in a lifetime. You got question, but I definitely do not know the answer is, you got question and it is time your man find out how to make it happen.

I am too much often heard about this wedding dream. I am 26 years old and my friends one by one are getting married, even some of them already have children. On the other friends circle, a career single girl in a big city who wants something sacred and intimate wedding party told me that she wanted so bad, to make it all the ceremonies in the island of Gods, Bali.

No wonder because Bali offers so many senses from modern & tropical lifestyle, natural beauties, and spiritual approaching all over the island. So I guess, there are a bunch of girls who obsessed to drag her partner and said “How about married in Bali?” short after the proposal, and you start googled “Wedding Party in Bali”. If you up to hills to see wide ocean, you may choose Uluwatu or Nusa Dua, or if you up to tranquility of forest of beach with a coconut trees you may choose Ubud, Canggu or even Manggis. Beach, hill, forest, garden, pool kind of wedding style, all is possible.

BALI BEACH WEDDING AT W RETREAT & SPA SEMINYAK BALI BY DELUXSHIONIST LIFESTYE fASHION BLOG FOR BRIDESTORYWedding at the Beach W Retreat & Spa Seminyak Bali 

This is my story; I believe it would be awesome to celebrate wedding party in this Island, yes why? It is because my hypothesis about a great energy and vibration. Most of people are coming to Bali for holiday, wedding, and all things related happy purposes right? When all the people around the world gather with happy vibrations, this is physics and magical. Once I stayed in Luxury resort in Uluwatu Bali, and that day there was a couple from Australia having their wedding ceremony, the atmosphere just so different, somehow it’s inspired me to do the same, well someday in Bali. One unforgettable day, there are only a few closest friends and family coming, shared happiest feeling on the planet that day with a bunch people that you love and that’s all.

This is maybe a never ending question, but you can always answer it by yourself, anytime in a future. I found a website/blog that can cure your thirst about the dream wedding in Bali with all the ideas, Bridestory.com.  I found it when I was searching about resort in Ubud. I came across the wedding pictures, that amazingly gorgeous, it got me goose-bumps. I just can’t explain by words, you need to see the joy by yourself.

All pictures is equally magical you need to see the rest at Bridestory

What I want to say is the idea of get married in Bali is not about prestige, lifestyle or exclusivity, but more to collects authentic and personal memory through intimate wedding party. You can spent, let say some amount of money to make a great wedding in your hometown that invited so many people, but on that day all you will got is tired, there was no time to spend even 10 minutes talking with your close friends about your happiness, and another long boring process to see unknown guests in your party… but at the same price you can arrange more private wedding party at somewhere beautiful, but you can always choose your way.
