Let's rewind to the time when my feet just landed in Bali, July 18.
It was late enough when I got there because I missed my flight, so all I did for the rest of the day were check-in to the hotel, rest for a bit, and have a nice dinner with my friends at Warung Made (no pictures taken there, but I recommend the Nasi Campur!). Afterward, we went on to Rosso (dine & lounge) just to enjoy the lounge and have a dessert. The place is on the sidewalk, but not as lame as in Jakarta where the pollution interferes. Great atmosphere, friendly service, and the seats were spread out enough so we can enjoy our conversation without any competition from others.
|Will we be back? Definitely.|
|The highlight: Bailey's Soufflé for the dessert ♥|

// DAY 2 //
We went to Dreamland on the second day to enjoy the beach (you can read the post here). After that, we decided to pamper ourselves and catch the sun set at the most spectacular bar in Bali, ROCK BAR.
Rock Bar is an open-topped bar located at Ayana Resort and Spa Bali which takes the concept of "on the rocks" to a whole new level. They offer breathtaking 360-degree views from every single vantage point.
|Arrived at AYANA.|
|Queuing. The queue line is divided into two lines (left and right). The right one is for the hotel guests only, talk about privileges.|
|Finally the long queue is over (about 30 minutes). After the queue, we had to wait for the inclinator to arrive to 'get down' to the bar.|
|(Almost) Sun set.|
|Tadah! This is the inclinator I was talking about.|
|Took a picture first while waiting for the table. By the way, you can see my whole outfit on that day here.|
|Unique style of the menu.|
|The Snacks - Calamari Fritti and Chicken Pop Corn. (They don't serve main course)|
|Stephanie - Angie - Olivia|
|And finally... a beautiful S U N S E T that warmed up our hearts.|
"The magic of the Rock Bar is to feel the sea close to you and enjoy the coastal scenery and the surf," says Yasuhiro Koichi, the designer.
