In Seminyak, we rented the gorgeous Fox Hoopla Villa for our first two nights. Our logic was that we should have a house, not a hotel here because our sleeping schedule would be all jacked up from our insane-o conference and long haul flight. It turned out to be a pretty good decision. The place is also conveniently located across the street from a very small mini-market and a warung, Warung Dua. That spot saved us on several occasions when we were too tired to think, particularly on night one. It is a just opened restaurant offereing eastern and western meals. While my partner opted for a burger, I was able to have mahi and vegetables for $4.82. Unreal.
The villa had 3 bedrooms with king-sized beds and attached bathrooms and a stunning open air living room and kitchen. The pool water was cool and just lovely for 100% humidity dips. There was even a waterfall you could turn on for your music video photo shoots…
The villa looked just like its online photos. The beds were very comfortable and came with mosquito nets which proved essential in the area. (My tall-assed body was basically some serious real estate for the mosquito buffet). The bathrooms and kitchen were a little damp and well, an outside kitchen can be a little buggy. No real complaints, just not something I thought about before our adventure to Bali.
We snagged this villa nearly half off for the shoulder season into rainy season that begins in November. For $150 a night, I’d certainly stay here again.
