Here I am in the land of many celebrations!
ACCOMMODATION: BALI DYNASTY RESORT, KUTA
It’s the room where I stayed!
The room itself is pretty spacious. Its clean and bed is quite huge too. A variety of tv channels can be found too if you intend to stay in which I did. Mirrors everywhere for vanity. Like me! Haha!
Just behind the curtains is the balcony. It has a sliding door so be sure to keep close at night or you’ll have mosquito bites the next morning. I stayed on the third floor and the balcony next door is not that close to mine either so no worries about having burglars or thief climbing over. It’s a pretty small lounging area though and sadly the view from over the balcony where I’m staying is another wing.
Toilets are super-duper essential for me. Each time I go for a vacation I like to have a clean toilet or I can’t do any business or feel like I have a good shower. Those who know me well enough know that I am very particular about the cleanliness of the toilet. Believe me I hate to see algae or grime on the creases of tiles. Yuck! And I like the fact that they renovated it, I believe.
Plenty of amenities in the toilets and the room for your own perusal. Mind you the minibar is sealed and once broken its chargeable. Even if you wish to empty the fridge its chargeable at 35,000 Rp. Yes, they use Indonesian RUPIAH as their currency not RUPEES!
Another essential guide to note is emergency plan. It’s most commonly found in the guest directory leaflet/ booklet or the back of the door. In case of any fire or earthquake situation arises you know where the nearest exit is and won’t panicked. Especially Indonesia being a very terrorist and earthquake prone country it is good to be mentally prepared.
Most resort/hotels have this “kiblat” directional sign. It’s usually in one of the drawers or on the ceiling. Even if they don’t you can ask concierge or reception. It’s good to have it and I’m glad the resort is thoughtful towards the Muslim community. “kiblat” is the direction that should be faced when a Muslim prays during “solat”.
I was pleasantly surprised that this little repellant was in the room. I would’ve sworn there were mosquitoes around especially not knowing whether the previous guest or housekeeping did opened the balcony for lounging or cleaning. But I slept rather well, no reports of mosquito bites!
I can’t help but notice the little details the resort took in labelling their switches! Don’t you find it annoying that you would have to turn on every switch just to switch on or switch off a particular light? Thumbs up!
Science lesson on a bottle! How cool is that?
Whats service without room service? Perfect for a bum like me BUT!
Time check? Rather late when I checked in and I’m quite beat so I shall skip supper.
It was just for a short layover reason why I stayed in with a couple of hours of rest. Nevertheless it was a pleasant rest indeed! Thank you Bali Dynasty Resort. Possibly a much needed holiday. Anytime soon?
