Thanks God finally I have a time to spend my time with my little family in the middle of working rush hour. I have no such a big plan to arrange this holiday, but seeing my baby starting to love playing with water and sand, my hubby and I decided to go to the beach. We chose Bali as the destination since we both miss that God’s Island a lot! Been there about 2 years ago before our marriage and now we thought it’s time to have a great escape with a new little member of our family. Since we know that Bali nowadays become more and more crowded both with new hotel or restaurant joiners, we decided not to go to area close to public attractions such as Kuta or Legian, so we move to Nusa Dua area which you know that area is quite exclusive surrounded by several luxurious and five star hotels or villas and one thing I love about Nusa Dua regardless the distance of which from the Bali’s crowd, is beaches around Nusa Dua are more pristine, quiet and PRIVATE! (most of the hotels in Nusa Dua have a private beach) and of course it is very convenient to bring along the baby with.
Basically, my hubby and I are budget travelers ummm I prefer to be called as ‘backpackers’. However, since we have a baby, we should upgrade our standard but still on our budget hahaha…So, we tried to look for a great hotel but still fit in our budget. Thanks God months ago I got a super great rate from Mercure Bali Nusa Dua. This hotel located at Nusa Dua, about 100 m after Hotel Santika Siligita. It took me around 1 hour from the Airport through the iconic-above-the-sea “Mandara” toll road. As you may know, Mercure is one of great establishment of 4 stars hotels under the amazing Accors Hotel Family, the family who brought us the famous Fairmont, Sofitel, Pullman until the all-time favorite budget hotel, Ibis Hotel. I always love how they manage the family members into something that people couldn't easily forget. They even focus on how to make customers experience a five-star ambiance even in a budget hotel.
