If you said “Kuta Beach”, what will occur in most of the people’s mind is Kuta Beach in Bali. But apparently, there is also a beach named Kuta in Lombok that its beauty is not lost from Kuta Beach in Bali. This beach is really neat and has white sand. This beach is also called as pepper beach because its white sand grains are really soft and cream-colored. Its preserved coral reefs caused this beach still looks natural. Aside from its naturalness, this beach also has a big and high waves so it is the right place to surf.
Bali is said to be a honeymoon spot, but I would totally deny this impression. It may be a honeymoon paradise but for stags its one of the best places to visit. The party culture is amazing and very open minded. My stay at Bali was in Kuta, we were 4 cousins who had gone to Bali for a vacation, as we were staying near kuta, all the best night clubs of city were quite near to us. There is a club named skygarden, one of the best night clubs I have visited till date, its a 6 story nightclub, which has all different type of music playing inn at all different floor.The best part of the club was, we went for 5 straight days and just paid up entrance once. They had this free coupon distribution happening every night we visited. And that coupon could have been utilised within next 2 days for a free entry, with a drink free in it. My 6 days in bali just made us sleep for may be just 30hrs out of 6 days. So skygarden is must visit.The white river rafting is must in bali, it is not that risky and last for around less than 3 hrs. Depends on the package, it has lunch included. While on way you will find beautiful scenery that you would wanna make you think, that thr journey shouldt end. We meet many other people from other country while rafting, and we bacame good friends with.Visit to hotel ayana, the rock bar is must. It has the most super location it could be at, with super amazing sunsets. The music and the ambience is good. Its highly priced but once a visit in a lifetime goes well. The most catching part comes at the entry of the bar, it has a lift that carries you down to the bar, thats a class apart, it makes you feel you are in another world.
Next on our list was the most amazing Tegallalang rice terraces. The sheer beauty and nature leaves you speechless and awestruck. Pls wear very comfortable walking shoes if you are keen on trekking through the rice terraces and taking some awesome pictures (which by the way I strongly recommend). In the evening, we did what we do best - Shopping and Bargaining!!! Any Ubud trip is incomplete without a visit to the Puri Saraswati temple, which opens to visitors only once in a while.
Bali Island Villa
If you are a firm believe in value-for-money, stay at Bali Island Villas! When it comes to private pools in a villa, a lot of villas in Bali come with a tiny plunge pool or pools that gives you perhaps four to five strokes max. The pool for each villa at Bali Island Villas is wonderful, gives you a chance to actually swim! The deck chairs are perfect for sunbathing and there's even an outdoor bed upstairs for an in-house massage session!
You can spend days walking along Jalan Legian. The street is lined with shops and boutiques and has everything from local designers to home wares to DVDs and Bintang singlets, and some more really unusual ones. . This strip suits every budget and all shoppers. You don’t need to buy anything but just watch and enjoy the haggling and the crass t-shirts and the bad braids people have had done.
Lot of amazing cafes, restaurants, Bars & night club..!! Fantastic Shopping.. Very lively place in South Bali! While diving I met a girl from Swiss who was working in China. Apparently she became my Diving buddy! After we finished Diving, we planned our trip ahead to Seminyak.. We made more friends enroute.. Friends from Philippines.. We visited Tanah Lot as it is considered to be one of the most beautiful sunset points in Bali! Since it was our last day and we did not know when would we meet next.. We went partying at Potato Head Beach Club! It would be one of the best located clubs with an infinity pool facing the sea! It was just one of the best trips of my life..! I miss Bali..!

Bakung Sari Hotel
We had booked our room online, and it turned out to be a great stay. The hotel itself looks like a temple, with ornate Balinese-style architecture, with the courtyard leading up to it flanked by an abundance of green, and bells chiming in the background. Great location, breakfast, pool and charming gardens. Could have done without the termites in the bathroom--but would stay there again!
