JEWELRY & FASHION-FORWARD PACKING, BULGARI RESORT BALI
If are looking for ideas for a chic city break or for an exotic destination, I’m going to have it covered. Here is my jewellery & fashion diary from the latest trip to Bulgari Resort Bali.
Bulgari Resort Bali is a 25-minute taxi ride from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The resort is located on the southern tip of the Jimbaran Peninsula, close to the Temple of Uluwatu.
To celebrate my 30th Birthday, I traveled to a secluded Bulgari Resort Bali. I was blown away by the stunning setting of the hotel: it is perched on a cliff and offers spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel is a beautiful blend of traditional Balinese architecture and contemporary Italian design by Antonio Citterio. Bulgari Resort Bali is a luxury haven with 59 Villas and 5 Mansions, it offers a beach club, three restaurants, a bar, an oceanfront spa and an infinity pool. It is absolutely perfect for honeymooners!
My spacious Ocean view villa with a chic tropical garden was a perfect place to celebrate my birthday! I particularly loved the enormous volcanic black stone bathroom with the Bulgari cosmetics brand. The interior was decorated with pieces of antique Balinese art and equipped with a Bang & Olufsen audio/video system. Every day, I was completely mesmerised by the stunning views of the ocean.
How convenient, right!
The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was very pretty and it never felt crowded by the guests.
I loved taking the inclined elevator ride from a dramatic cliff where Bulgari is positioned. It’s one of the longest rides of its kind in the world, with fantastic views from its open-sided carriage that really stays in your memory. It stops near the beach club restaurant and a troop of monkeys.
The white sand beach between the cliff and the water’s edge is inaccessible to the general public from both ground and sea, as it is protected by a coral reef. If you are feeling brave, you can reach it by swimming.
For my birthday I had 4 hands Balinese massage with warm volcanic stones; it was one the best experiences I have had in Bali. I booked the following day just to be certain and to continue my birthday celebration. The oceanfront Spa embraces all of the elements of Balinese tradition. The main pavilion is an antique, hand-carved joglo house from the island of Java, which was dismantled, relocated, then authentically recreated at the Bulgari Resort!
For my birthday celebration I was invited to the opening of Il Ristorante Luca Fantin which serves creative and modern interpretations of Italian cuisine blended with local, organic ingredients. The first flagship Michelin-starred Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin is located in Tokyo’s Bvlgari Ginza Tower. On other nights I indulged in many delicious Balinese dishes at the poolside Sangkar restaurant.
There’s also an enigmatic, modernist-style wedding chapel to renew your vows, maybe one day!
Stunning honeymoon heaven, perfect for a two-person romantic trip to unwind and be pampered.
