BUMP.

Ubud Hanging Gardens or one of the Chedi properties can often be had on Jetsetters etc for a good price.

This place should be quite cool:http://www.sinnivillas.com/index.php
Wow... ever seen that Sinni one on Jetsetter? Looks QUITE cool.

ETA: Ah darn:

That seriously looks like one of the coolest hotels, both literally and figuratively that I've ever seen. Almost makes me want to go somewhere else this time around and wait until 2015 when this opens...


So... it's 2015, and instead of a posh Sinni Villas property doing booming business, they seem to have vanished almost without a trace. Did they go out of business or something?

Creating artist renderings are a lot easier than building.

Not true. I know many construction workers with the artist skills of a tuna casserole. :P

So what's the deal with the Hanging Gardens, anyway? There's shockingly little discussion of it in this thread, for such a prestigious property...

Any way to get it without shelling out obscene quantities of dineros? (Think $600+ per night. :o)

If you looking for a villa with pool in Bali. I stayed at the Royal Santrian, it is similar the the pavilions in Phuket however its just bigger, nicer and directly on the beach! I'd say a little more luxury as they have 10 people per a couple here.

Yes, but it's not in Ubud - resorts on the beach are a dime a dozen. But more importantly, it doesn't have this:

Exactly why I recommend Ubud over the beach resorts.

So I've got a flight on hold back to DPS, and I'm really hoping it'll work out.
My thoughts for this trip is to spend the time in either northern or eastern bali (biking, motorbikes, villages) and then take a ferry over to Lombok.
Anyone spend time in these areas?

Trying to decide last minute where to stay in Bali. We will be there in the next few weeks, the height of the wet season. We have a choice of staying in North Kuta or Ubud. I prefer Ubud but I'm concerned about the increased chance of rain due to it being in the mountains. Any suggestions?

If you have kids and are insured then get them.
As a practicing Jew I never really felt the need for vaccination as Keeping Kosher & Shmiras Habris will protect you.

you should get Hep A and B anyway. Insurance covers it.
Typhoid is not covered by insurance. I think the pill is about $65
check out the CDC's guidelines

I'll be going to Bali from JFK 6:15am (in a few hours from now). Actually flying first in Jakarta and gonna sleep for a few hours before flying to Densapar. Will be getting into Bali 6pm on Thursday. Does anyone here have any recommendations where to stay for shabbos that makes it possible to observe shabbos and have a minyan and kosher food / atmosphere?
I am traveling with a non-jew so I need a solid plan lol thanks!
