Alila Villas Soori Spa

With some delay, due to rushing into deadline of Endless´s big sister of a magazine “I LOVE YOU”, we are now back again with the final days of our Indonesia trip.
As weather in europe getting nasty, we can now delight you with some more wellness experiences in the tropics, followed by more amazing luxury amongst almost sacral modern architecture. But first back to Alila Villas Soori and its amazing new Spa facilities introducing: the Vichy Shower....

15.08.10 back to Bali


15.08.10
getting up at 6.00 am again, off to Bali. We are staying at Alila Villas Soori. After this very intense experience in Flores Bali seems so civilised, so rich and full of everything. We are being picked up by a driver from the hotel with all comfort you can imagine. A bottle of water, some snacks, pillows for the ride and a refreshment spray with an aloe vera....scent. It is an one our ride from the airport to the hotel, we are passing by some very fresh and green rice fields. When we get to the hotel I almost start crying. An entourage of 7 people is expecting us, big A had to walk the last meters, you know the car sickness again. This hotel is placed at an amazing black sanded beach with dramatic waves, even to dramatic for surfing as the waves break to early, whatever.

14.08.10 Komodo

We are getting up at 6.30h because we want to go to Rinca to meet with the Komodo dragons. We asked the guide to make a short tour today so the kids can spend a day on the pool too. An old fisher boat is hired for us, but this boat is so slow I would be faster swimming. We see beautiful Robinson Crusoe beaches and a lot of monkeys and Komodo Dragons. The dragons are quite, umm, cute as well. Annoying little Z today was crying madly on Komodo (because she was too lazy to walk) so that the dragons quite curiously got all hungry on little humans and appeared out of the bushes...no joke. They get attracted by theses sounds as they indicate there is some creature in danger and panic and so makes a nice little snack being an easy victim.
We have amazing food on this slow nutshell on our way back, the best food I had during the Flores trip.After 6 hours on the boat instead of 1,5 hours as promised we are back in the hotel. It is raining and we all take a swim in the pool, I feel so happy and so alive.
We will be back to luxury from now on so stay tuned....

best Mr. and Mrs. Trip
