Tucked away in the middle of rice paddy fields just off Ecco Beach, you’ll find Villa Phoenix – only the most #grammable villa in all the land.
It’s about $120 a night, and there’s four different rooms. If you’re going with a big group, BOOK ALL OF THE ROOMS – I am 100% coming back and doing this next time.
This is the kind of place you book and spend all of your time in – so bring a book and/or load up your lappy with millions of movies.
Now that you’re booked… it’s time to talk about something very important – FOOD.
Walking distance from the villa is a freakin’ amazing cafe – Ki-no-a.
The sign says clean eating, so it’s obvs fkn healthy, but don’t be afraid by the whole ‘clean eatin’ thang, it’s bloody delicious and more importantly… THE COFFEE IS GOOD.
You can get a big brekky and coffee for about $8. SOLD!
My number one tip is EXPLORE. Walk everywhere.
Walking – sounds horrible I know, but the things you stumble upon!
Head to Ecco Beach and you’ll find bars, bars, and more bars.
Happy hour is almost every hour, so you’re more than likely to get there at happy hour and enjoy 2 for 1 cocktails, which should be music to everyone’s ears.
I highly recommend – Captain Catch.
Best cocktail as voted by me – the Kookaburra cocktail at Potato Head- fkn amazing. Also, order the calamari.
Best beach as voted by me – Sunday’s Beach Club in Uluwatu.
An obvious choice, but you can’t go to Bali and not go to Motel Mexicola.
Go during the day for an epic mexican feed and check out their fkn awesome interiors, THEN, go at night and the place is transformed – people dancing on tables, some rando pouring tequila into your mouth and lotsa lotsta fun.
Go to Bali Boat Shed and find my new FAV brand – Super Normal Collective.
I am officially obsessed and of course, it’s bloody affordable #brokegalforlyf
Kim Soo for cheap homewares, coffee and cake!
Wanderlust for bikinis – trust me, ya gon have a hard time choosing!
You MUST go to Spring and book a massage.
I went 3 days in a row. It’s a little more expensive then the places you’ll find on the street but it is AH-MAZ-ING.
Book the hair rescue – you get every kind of massage plus an epic hair mask.
If you’re into #nature and stuff, find your nearest waterfall and scoot to it!
I’m fkn terrified of heights so I legit almost cried walking up this waterfall, but I guess it was fun… a good break from all of the eating and drinking… if you need one.
There is A LOT I loved and haven’t included here, bcuz seriously, there’s a lot. So, if you have any questions or want any more recommendations, either comment below or message me on Instagram!
CHEERS and have a bloody great time!
