This summer I traveled to Bali for the first time and I visited a few different places on the island. First, I went to Ubud and my second stop was in Seminyak where I spent a few days. I felt like each area in Bali is so different from another. Seminyak is kind of the party area and felt more like a city instead of an island. During my days there, I stayed at the Anantara resort which is located along the coastline. Since Seminyak is a busy place with lots of traffic and tourists, the Anantara resort is a nice little getaway from the busy streets. If you love a good party but still want to relax by the beach during the day, then I definitely recommend visiting Seminyak.
Last month I traveled to Bali for the first time and I had an amazing time! I traveled to different places within the island but my first stop was in Ubud. This area of Bali is known for its greenery and huge rice fields. The hotel I stayed at in Ubud was the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. This property was built by a well respected Indonesian architect and art collector: “Hendra Hadiprana”. It once used to be his private residence but a few years ago he turned it into a resort and it has the most authentic Indonesian atmosphere you’ll ever find.
It’s my second time to visit this branch of Talise spa, everytime I’m there it reminds me of Marrakech but with the tropical elements of Asia. The spa area is really beautiful and on sunny days you’ll be able to enjoy the pool as well. Talise Spa has so many different treatments but the treatments I had done were the “Full Body Scrub” of 30 minutes and the “Margys Age Embrace Facial” of 60 minutes.
It’s officially Summer which means that it’s going to be SUPER hot in the UAE. It has its good and bad sides, the good side is that it’s beach season again and the downside of it is that it can get really hot which is unbearable here. I’m currently planning my summer vacation and I got a bit inspired on Tumblr by all the beachy and summer posts so I’m sharing some of my favorite photos here. Like always, you’ll find these images individually on my Tumblr page!
I’ve been a bit MIA these past two weeks because I’ve been battling the worst flu! Here’s a short video of my trip to the Maldives, hope this will make up for my absence! Check out #NajlaTravels on Instagram to see all my travel posts, I can’t wait to create more travel content for you guys 🙂
I recently got the chance to experience a few treatments at the Talise spa in Madinat Jumeirah. I was so stressed out from work and constantly fixated on my emails; I really needed a day to recharge again so the Talise spa seemed like the perfect place.
The reason why I’m doing this post is because Ryadh (my husband) and I recently got back from a beach vacation to Sri Lanka. Everything he packed for that trip just didn’t make any sense (LOL). Mainly because he didn’t really know what to pack and of course it also has to do with men just being too careless about what they’re packing to a trip. Then I realized perhaps there are more people that have no clue what to pack for a beach vacation, so I decided to break it down for you from my personal experience.
