Beautiful Bali

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

Paradise really does exist.


Bali really does live up to its reputation: huge gorgeous plants and flowers everywhere, smiling friendly people, fresh from the ocean seafood, colorful handcraft markets, moist warm tropical air, clear blue water for swimming and snorkeling.

If I have one complaint about Bali it is I did not stay long enough at the Mahagiri Villas Sanur. The accommodation, with a private swimming pool, large bedroom with wood paneling and parquet floors, indoor soaking tub plus outdoor shower, private lanai was hard to leave. For dinner in the lovely outdoor restaurant, I had my choice of the day’s freshly caught fish carefully displayed on a bed of ice. I chose the snapper. Simply grilled with local herbs and seasonings, it was delicious.
