The End of Seminyak

Good morning! Sadly it has come to our last day in Seminyak, the end of our first destination. We spent the day by the pool having the best lychee ice-cream ever whilst nursing a lizard I found whose tail had been chopped off (google helped turn me into a vet for a few hours).

In the early afternoon we headed down to the beach. The landscape was absolutely sensational, the shore continued for miles practically deserted. We tip toed around the waters edge whilst watching the mini crabs scurry from side to side, fascinated by the holes they dig and seek refuge in.


Popping in and out of hotels is my favourite, along the Seminyak beach front boasts hotels that are out of this world. Personal favourite was The Legian it costs an arms and a leg but the grounds ....
^ Speechless!


We settled down at Ku De Ta (our little Seminyak spot) and ordered a pizza and some grazing bits along with cocktails. Sadly no happy hour, but we were definitely happy enough.

5pm came and the crowds slowly came in for sunset.


Cocktails in hand and romance all around, everyone marvelled as the sun slowly dipped behind the clouds and horizon.


Joe and I started to feel a little in the clouds, up with the boats. 


We left Ku De Ta, jumped in a taxi and had a quick turn around before dinner.

We saved the Samaya's restuarant BREEZE till our last night (it ended up not being our favourite in Seminyak and I've saved our numero uno to feature in it's own post).

BREEZE is number one on tripadvisor and very highly rated in Bali. It was also one of the first times Joe and I hadn't looked at the menu before we arrived and planned what we are going to eat, sad but true! So there was definitely some excitement.

It's an extremely elegant restaurant, with around 20 tables spaced out along the sea front. The service was the best I have experienced in my life, we were addressed as "Miss Kelly" and "Mr Joe" throughout the whole meal by our charming waitress and waited on hand and foot.


Although we decided to share I got the fillet in front of me (winner winner fillet dinner) and Joe got the mie goreng.


Medium rare, soft and flavoursome served with edamame, mash and puree butternut squash.

The mie goreng, a traditional Indonesian dish consisting of egg noodles, chicken skewers, fried egg, stir fried vegetable and a crispy duck leg.

 

I got a little bit chilly from the BREEZE and was given a cute cotton throw.



The mains were amazing, Joe and I talk and giggle a lot over all dinners but the waves crashing and momentary breaks of golden silence were incredibly relaxing the only communication were our mmm's between mouthfuls.

For dessert we went for warm apple cake.



The combination of perfectly prepared and presented food coupled with a gorgeous setting created an ideal evening to cap off another day in paradise and a great send off from Seminyak.
