seminyak, our last stop in bali

after visiting beautiful south kuta to see some of bali’s best beaches and ubud to explore nature, dek & i wrapped up our two-week bali adventure in seminyak, which is a beach-front area near the airport. we wanted to spend the last few days unwinding and relaxing to the max before heading back to dallas. we read about potato head beach club & many quaint cafes so those types of things were on our to-do list, but not much else. we splurged a bit on our airbnb in this location at ~$155/night but i was pretty adamant about staying somewhere special for our last few nights & somewhere that was in a good location close to everything & this place did not disappoint. allira villas were amazing! everything from the open-concept villa itself to the friendly staff, they even came by in the evenings and lit mosquito coils for us! we couldn’t believe the whole place was for us, it was huge. there were a few of these villas down a palm-tree lined path from the main road and our location was central to everything, we walked everywhere here. there are so many restaurants and boutiques in this area so it was fun to have new places to go every day all at your fingertips.

showing off that #balibody i worked so hard to achieve before our trip.

i started working out by running with my dogs at the park & stuck to a keto diet for about 2 months leading up to when we left and lost ~25 lbs.

there are many beach club resort-type places around seminyak but potato head was right down from where we were staying. we tried to go the first day we arrived, but it was like 2 in the afternoon & there was really nowhere to sit and chill so we decided to come back the next day early a little before it opened and reserve a daybed. i would totally recommend doing this, as we got to pick our spot (they show you a map of the beds and we chose the one close to the pool in the center) and the price was soooo worth it! they ask you to reserve the bed by paying $50 (which mind you, is kinda pricey in bali) but that amount goes toward drink and food credit and after spending ~5 hours there we both agreed it was well worth it. we literally lounged around all day reading our books, sipping cocktails, eating and dipping in and out of the infinity pool. #potatoheadbeachclub

for dinner that evening we took our sunburned butts to nook, which is a restaurant overlooking rice fields a little aways from the hustle & bustle, it was tucked in a side “street” which was kind of scary to walk down at night once it got dark, but we loved this place!

for dinner i really wanted a good pasta so we discovered this place called zibiru and it was a hole-in-the-wall but opened to a beautiful hidden courtyard with candles everywhere and delicious food & wine
