What inspires you about Bali?
Ocean and infinity pools
How may times have you been to Bali?
I have been to Bali 6 times; I first visited with a girlfriend about 5 years ago. My husband and I came over to attend an incredible wedding 2 years ago and now we aim for twice a year. We love the place.
How would you describe the Balinese Culture?
Bali is an incredibly soulful and spiritual place. It’s also the place of the most breathtaking sunsets!
Where do you stay in Bali? Which Area?
We usually stay in a villa in Seminyak – we have stayed in lots of different ones. Next time we are going to give Canguu a go, love the vibe there, the cafes, and my husband loves the surf.
Favourite Places in Bali
Oh where to start! The food in Bali is something I LOVE. So many great places, organic and fresh food, and so cheap.
Petitinget – for breakfast or cocktails and dinner
Watercress – food is delicious!
Corner House – cocktails

Revolver – awesome place for brekky or coffee
Old Man’s – best place to hang out and relax – in Canggu
Betelnut in Canguu is great for brekky
Metis for dinner is beautiful

La Lucciola is gorgeous for breakfast and lunch
Potato Head for a relaxing day by or in the pool, cocktails and the food is great too
Dinner at Bvlgari – it was spectacular – make sure you arrive before sunset

I could go on forever!
Where do you relax and retreat in Bali?
So much relaxation in our retreat, and also get massage at Body Works or the Massage across from Grocer and Grind in Seminyak
How do you get around in Bali – transport (scooter, walk, taxi, driver)
Scooters, easy to weave in and out of traffic and so much fun!
Shopping and Markets
I usually shop in Seminyak – can’t go past Magali Pascal and always come home with several things from her shops.

I haven’t done any retreats yet – but hope to get to Ubud for one next trip.
