RAMAYANA RESORT AND SPA: THE MODERN BALINESE IMMERSION

RAMAYANA RESORT AND SPA: THE MODERN BALINESE IMMERSION

The buzzling street life, stalls and shops of both cheap finds and branded outlet stores occupied by a number of tourists on barefoot with surfboards on tow served as my recollection of the Kuta Beach in Bali.  A year ago, we only spent an afternoon lounging on the shores of Kuta Beach with of course, bottles of beer.  There was a feeling of wanting for more but time says otherwise.

It was fortunate that this time around, our home in Bali is a 5-minute walk to Kuta Beach and accessible to the modern Balinese lifestyle – of shops, bars and restaurants.  The Ramayana Resort and Spa was and will always be a home for me.

Our room is situated at the 4th floor of the Western building, housing all executive deluxe rooms.  With such well-appointed rooms in a modern building located at the center of Kuta, there are instances I am a bit disoriented if I’m still in Bali or in another bustling city.  But the accents of the room and the detailed interiors of our room reminds me I am still in Bali.


GABAH RESTAURANT

Despite the modern Balinese ambiance, one of the hotels’ in-house restaurant provides a traditional atmosphere of dining.  Offerings are actually a fusion of traditional and modern Indonesian cuisine.  This is an-all day dining restaurant open from 6:30AM to midnight daily.

It becomes even more relaxing that dining is complemented by the sound of the ponds’ flowing water beside the restaurant.  The interiors and fixtures as well feature Balinese designs and traditional Indonesian cultural heritage.

Our complimentary breakfast is served at the said restaurant which makes a good introduction for the daily routine while in Bali.  The service staff are attentive and so far, I never encountered any problem on our concerns, which makes the restaurant tourist-friendly.

We had a feast for dinner at the said restaurant on our first night at Bali.  Exhausted from the trip from Lombok and a short stroll on the nearby Kuta beach, it was but fitting that we treat ourselves like royalty in the form of a bountiful Indonesian cuisine.

Food. Service. Accommodations.  All were perfect.  The stay at Ramayana Resort and Spa for three days truly defined what a modern Balinese immersion for tourists like me is.
