Bali tour package with Parents - My Journey
Hello, dear readers! I’m Thirtha Puttaswamy, and I recently embarked on an unforgettable journey to Bali with my parents. Hailing from Bangalore, our vacation was not just any trip; it was a special opportunity for my elderly parents to relax and have a great time. Every year, I make it a point to take my parents on a vacation, and 2023 was no exception. I was on a quest to find the perfect destination where my parents could be comfortable and create beautiful memories.
My friend Neeta, who was also planning a family vacation, suggested Bali. Her brother-in-law had recently honeymooned in Bali with the help of Lestacworld.com, and they had an incredible experience. What caught my attention was how Lestacworld had been remarkably supportive during some unexpected medical issues.
After contacting Lestacworld.com, we began discussions with their experienced executive. After a few conversations, Neeta and I were convinced that Bali was the destination for our dream vacation. We eagerly started researching Bali, keeping our specific needs in mind.
One significant reason for choosing Bali was to seek the help of a Balinese healer for my father, who was suffering from a mysterious ailment that had stumped medical professionals back home.
Our Journey of Selecting Hotels in Bali
Our quest began with researching accommodations, as I wanted to ensure a comfortable and luxurious stay for my parents. Lestacworld’s executive suggested several 5-star beach resorts, but I decided to do some research of my own. After thorough investigation, I settled on the exquisite Merusuka Beach Resort in Nusa Dua. The Lestacworld team was quick to work on securing the best deal for this remarkable property.
In addition to the beachfront resort, I also wanted to experience the serene beauty of Ubud. After extensive research and discussions, I opted for the Payogan Private Pool Villa in Ubud, a decision I would later come to cherish.
Our Arrival Experience in Bali
In September 2023, the day of our much-anticipated journey finally arrived. We boarded Malaysia Airlines for our flight to Bali, a comfortable and convenient choice compared to other airlines on the same route.
Upon our arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport, we were warmly welcomed by Mr. Oka Giantara, the local Indonesian team manager from Lestacworld. Oka’s hospitality and expertise instantly put us at ease. He efficiently facilitated our check-in process at the Merusuka Beach Resort and provided valuable insights about our upcoming tour.
Our family fell in love with the Merusuka property, especially the serene Nusa Dua area. It quickly became our home away from home, and we relished every moment of our five-night stay there.
About the tours we explored in Bali
Our official tour began on the second day of our trip, and one of the first things that struck us was the breathtaking beauty of Bali’s beaches. Among them, Padang Padang Beach captured our hearts, and I couldn’t resist taking a dip in the sea, a departure from the usual hesitancy of most Indian tourists.
We were not particularly interested in the crowded tourist spots with long queues. What made our experience truly exceptional was the flexibility offered by Lestacworld’s local team. They helped us explore off-the-beaten-path destinations that weren’t on our initial itinerary.
One of my most profound reasons for choosing Bali was to seek the services of a Balinese healer for my father’s mysterious ailment. With Oka’s assistance as our translator and guide, we embarked on a journey to meet the healer, Jro Wayan Wiastika, in Denpasar. Our visit left us profoundly satisfied, as my father emerged feeling more positive about his health.
Our amazing food Journey in Bali
As a family of avid non-vegetarians, we indulged in the rich and diverse local cuisine of Bali at every opportunity. Our driver, a wonderful companion throughout our journey, often recommended the best dishes for us to try, and we eagerly followed his advice. We were particularly impressed by the impeccable service of our driver, who went above and beyond to make our culinary experiences in Bali exceptional.
During our trip, our driver introduced us to some culinary gems. He got us delicious fish satay from a local vendor on the way to Tirta Gangga and mouthwatering pork satay near Seminyak Beach. These were the best satay we had ever tasted, and we couldn’t get enough.
We also had the pleasure of dining at an amazing restaurant, which our driver took us to. The name of this amazing place is “no name”,it was located near Uluwatu. The food and ambiance were outstanding, and it was a dining experience we won’t soon forget.
Our visit to Potato head street club
One of the highlights of our trip was our visit to Potato Head Beach Club. We had pre-booked our time slot, and the ambiance that evening was nothing short of magical. The club’s vibrant atmosphere and stunning ocean views made for an unforgettable evening of relaxation and entertainment.
