Bali has always been at the top of my list of places to visit. Aside from beach chilling and nonstop eating and drinking, a trip to Bali to me would mean a lot of exploring of the little shops and really taking in all the beautiful interiors of the smallest restaurants and coffee shops, or buying the most random things from stands. It just so happened that one of my most recent work trips brought me there, though to an area far away from Seminyak (the main area of Bali where all the happenings are). It was more secluded and private, something I also truly liked because it felt extra peaceful, and I was able to get away from the busyness of everything even just for a bit.
Bride and Breakfast visited The Mulia, Bali a few weeks back. For those wondering why we went, we got invited by The Mulia to experience the resort. We were there for three days, which was definitely not enough to take in the whole place. Our time was spent wandering around, taking photos, and eating (nonstop!). You can read about our Bride and Breakfast experience here, but I’d like to share a few tidbits and photos of the trip that I personally found interest in.
I love the openness of the hallways of The Mulia. You are immediately connected to nature once you step out of your room.
The tint on the wooden floors are on point, too.
Pool spaces here are endless. You’ll never have to worry about it being too crowded.
I liked the pool setup here because of the trees and leveled day beds. I could stay here for hours just staring at the view and sipping on some cocktails.
One of my favorite parts of the day: buffet. This photo was taken when we entered the restaurant and only had 20 minutes to get food before the buffet closed. We came from a red-eye flight with barely any sleep, so you can just imagine how tired and hungry we were. This photo reflects only mine and Sam’s first round.
It was such a treat just going around the place. The resort is absolutely grand, it’s overwhelming. What I loved even more was how the details, fixtures, furniture and everything was carefully thought of.
This next food shot was from our high tea merienda. Not sure how we still ate this after the buffet, but we did anyway.
Sunsets by the beach were so calming. Because the area was so big, no one disturbed us. The best part was the availability of the waiters in the area. You’d think that a resort, with an area this big, would make it difficult to get some service. We didn’t feel the lack of it at all!
One of my favorite spots: the spa. Upon entering the place you already feel so relaxed because of the sound of running water and the scent of their oils.
I was so intrigued by this ice room in the sauna area. The perfect way to end a spa day to close the pores and cool down your body!
I liked this area as well, since it was an island protruding into the water and you could get a 360 degree view of water, the hotel, and the abundance of plant life around. The structure behind is actually a chapel that’s also protruding into the water. An absolutely romantic place for a wedding ceremony!
The Mulia is about an hour away from Seminyak, so we didn’t actually get to see this busier area. Some might want to visit Bali and be in the middle of all the action, but if you’re looking to get out of the city for the ultimate R&R, this resort will give you that, and more.
