After a tasty feast of breakfast tacos from the avocado factory, we checked out of the hotel and headed for Seminyak. Luckily the traffic wasn’t too bad, and we shared a cab with a girl from the hotel so it wasn’t as expensive either! We checked into our hotel in Seminyak and then set off to have a wander and get some lunch. It was cool to be back in Seminyak again after 3 weeks of exploring the rest of Bali, and the busy streets were exactly as we had left them. For lunch we ate at Clean Canteen, and had some really good curry & cold brew coffees. We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around the shops and along the beach, finishing off at La Plancha in time for sunset. It’s arguably the best spot to watch the sunset in Seminyak, while enjoying a bintang or two on the colourful bean bags.
After popping back to the hotel to change and get ready for the evening, we made our way to Potato Head. We’d seen on instagram the day before that they had secret guests performing, and by the look of the poster we had a strong suspicion that it would be Disclosure! After a bit of a queue to get in we headed straight for the bar and then just as we thought, the screens flashed with Disclosure’s logo and they appeared on stage, blaring out the music. We had a great night, especially as it was so unexpected, and it was really cool to see them in a place like Potato Head as it’s such an amazing place!
We decided to spend Thursday at Waterbom in Kuta. It’s been deemed Indonesia’s best waterpark, and you can see why! We had an amazing day going on all of the different slides and chilling out on the lazy river. The best slide was by far the ‘climax’, where you’re stood on a platform that drops right out from underneath you. You feel like you’re genuinely plummeting to your death but then end up being scooped up and flung around a gravity defying loop the loop, and then flying out of the tube into daylight again.
We had lunch at Waterbom and spent most of the day there before heading back to Seminyak to chill at the hotel for a bit. For dinner we ate at Chai’ba, the amazing Indian restaurant that we went to on our first night in Bali. It was just as good as we remembered it – maybe even better! It’s definitely the best Indian food I’ve ever eaten, so we had to have it at least once more before we leave Bali!
We had an early start on Friday, and headed straight out at 7.30 to Tegenungan Waterfall. The waterfall is located just outside of ubud
After a steep walk down into the valley below, you felt instantly cooler as you were surrounded by the spray from the fast flowing water. You can stand right at the foot of the waterfall (and swim in it – if you dare) and get an amazing view of the water as it crashes down into the pool below. After crossing a little bamboo bridge, and climbing some steps, we were able to get right to the top of the falls and have an incredible view of the water and river below. We got some great pics, and could even see a rainbow from the sun shining through the spray.
After a long and trafficky drive back to seminyak, we spent the rest of the afternoon at Mrs. Sippy. It’s Seminyak’s biggest saltwater pool, and has an awesome diving platform as well as amazing tropical surroundings. We had a great time chilling out there and swimming, and had some tasty lunch too. We walked home via the shops and markets, and then had dinner at a little vegan place called Zula.
