Harris Vertu Hotel Jakarta Staycation Experience

Its always nice to stay at a lovely comfy hotel room and to be very honest, this is quite possible the second time I stayed at a hotel in Jakarta. Because I normally picked some nice hotels only when I was going out of town. Harris Vertu Hotel is located at Harmony area,West Jakarta where it is very close to the busy street of Thamrin. FYI, it is also the highest class from Tauzia Hotel Group where you normally know them for their Pop Hotel & Harris Hotel. Without further a due, let's take a look around the hotel.

The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa Bali

Welcome to The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa, Bali. Tanjung Benoa is a well kept secret paradise at the south part of Bali, famous for the beautiful beach, the tranquility and definitely the beach front resort! Used to be Mantra Sakala, we were once had our lunch here back in 2015 at their Sakala Beach Club which is located just before the beach. And now they transformed themselves into the new Sakala Resort. We got the chance to stay at their Deluxe Suite Room at the 5th floor, a spacious 60 meter square suite with a huge living room and a comfy luxurious bath room both interconnected with their main bed room. Wanna know more about our experience here? Let's check it out!

Enjoy Floating on The Pool at Cabina Bali

Welcome to Cabina Bali - A new tropical theme cafe with turquoise pool at the center as their signature. We got the chance to visit this newly opened cafe in Canggu during our trip to Bali on last September 2017 and it was such a nice place to hang out! It was our last day in Bali (day 4) and we were about to leave the island at night. So, it was so unfortunate that we couldn't enjoy the pool like plunging or floating on the giant watermelon float! We tasted a few of their recommended menu and we are excited to share them with you right now. Let's take a look!

Afternoon at Karma Private Beach - Uluwatu

Karma Kandara, a dream resort that I believe everybody wants to experience at least once in a lifetime. But well, not everybody has that purchasing power to stay at the luxurious expensive resort. The only option you can experience is to visit Karma Beach! Yeay a private beach located separately from Karma Kandara resort. Experience going down the hill to the beach with their mini electric cart and watch the amazing view (especially the sun set) on your way down from the hill. Expect to spend at least 500K/person to reach the private beach in which you are given 300K credit to order any food and beverages (exc alcohol) on the bar. Beach was clean and peaceful while being enlivened with the resort's live music performance. Let's check out our beach moments here!

Momozen - Authentic Japanese Restaurant on the 46th

Another high end Japanese Restaurant in town, introducing MOMOZEN! Got the chance to try a few signature dishes here, its located at The Plaza Building at 46th Floor. We were actually invited by Nibble App to visit this restaurant and we tasted 5 different dishes from their Tapas to their main course. The first picture above is their best selling Black Truffle Somen with Caviar (80K), its a cold served somen or angle hair noodle neatly plated with an intense truffle flavor. I was totally sold with this one, it was really addicting! Size wise it was petite actually, so eat with care :p This gonna be a very short review, so let's go!

Wapa di Ume - Best Honeymoon Villa in Ubud

This image above might look like an abandoned house somewhere in the middle of the jungle. I managed to capture this image from a certain angle in the area. I really love the shot, because it somehow shows the natural side of a resort. Let me introduce you to Wapa Di Ume, a hidden exotic resort in Ubud. We were looking for a hotel 2 days prior to our arrival in Bali and it was like last minutes! I browsed through Agoda.com and got tons of choices. Ubud has been one of the best places in Bali to escape from a busy buzzling city. One thing about picking a nice stay is by sorting the hotel's rating. Wapa Di Ume came out as one of the best with a rating above 8 (forgot the exact). And were didn't make a wrong choice, this easily became the only two most memorable resort in Ubud after Padma Ubud. I have specially put a lot of effort in making this review just for you guys. So enjoy!
