After twelve days of being surrounded by a fun group of travelers, me and my buddy were left alone at Alila Seminyak Bali. The deafening silence felt odd as we’re back to being strangers with everyone that passes by. Overlooking Seminyak Beach, it was a bittersweet day as my buddy turned a year older the same day as everyone left. We had one full day of lounging and chillin’, just what we needed after almost two weeks of fun adventures around Indonesia.
It was the last part of Trip of Wonders 2016, a twelve-day exploration on different key destinations in Indonesia by the Ministry of Tourism with 40+ souls from different Southeast Asian countries. We had a great time discovering the gems of Jakarta (for a quick overnight stop), Bandung, Yogyakarta, Lombok and Komodo National Park for almost two weeks and now we’re in Bali for the last leg of the trip.

The resort itself is unique, with its modern minimalist theme echoing throughout its spacious and airy lobby. Lush greens were everywhere, fresh plants dangling all over the receiving area. Touches of Balinese art and culture were also evident on the little details such as a Hindu door placed on a wall and a temple right off the shore.

That mornight, I had the best sleep in twelve days, with no call time or any organized activity the next day.
Breakfast was served at the all-day dining restaurant of Alila Seminyak Bali. The resort had a modified way of serving their buffet breakfast. Soups, fruits, cereals, breads and other breakie favorites were spread out while the main course (Western and Asian dishes) was freshly cooked every time we ordered it.
