Welcoming, Scenic, Relaxing, the perfect stay :)

Our first stop in Bali and the rest of the trip spent wishing we were still there!

I. Made picked us up from the airport with flowers after our 25 hour journey and took us to the Tulamben villas where we were greeted by Guenter and the lovely Monika who were visiting during our stay. As it was dark when we arrived we could not see how close the water was, just hear breaking waves. In the morning we awoke to the most breathtaking views of the sea, and the reef at Tulamben is the most amazing I've ever seen, whether snorkeling or diving.

Every morning we had fresh fruit, a choice of fresh juices and breakfast freshly prepared and served by Wayan and Ketut. The gardens were beautifully tended to, as was our every need and desire. Meals were simple, delicious and very reasonably priced so we rarely ate anywhere else during our stay.

During our visit, there was a full moon ceremony at the local temple and Ketut was kind enough to take us there when she made her offering. It was a very special day and we were honoured that she would allow us to accompany her.

We cannot thank the team at the Toya enough for all of their hospitality, and would recommend that anyone stay here.

Una and Keith :)
