Legian

Double the fun on Double Six!

Who’s after a little shopping inspiration?

embroidered bag

I always head to Double Six Road for sarongs, sandals and jewellery.  The shop owners here are always so much more relaxed – and fab finds are the norm.

Double Six Road is actually called Jalan Arjuna but others also know it as Sarong or Silver Street.  It starts at Jalan Legian (opposite Jalan Nakula) and stops at Legian Beach (near to Zanzibar Restaurant).

Head off on foot along this winding road for upmarket silver, leather handbags, embroidered bags, stylish sarongs, shoes, bling jewellery, beads, scarves and more.

Happy Christmas shopping!!

Hint:  Wita Ayu Shop is a fave for unique sarong prints!

(I purchased the pink and lime green floral in the photo below, top row – 2nd from RHS – it matches so well with an embroidered bag of similar colours!)

FIXED PRICE SHOPPING TIP:

 

Image

The ever popular Ketut’s Fixed Price shop in Legian is often crowded these days and you have to stand in line to be served.

You can easily bypass this however by shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, run by her baby brother, Wayan!

Image

Ketut’s Family Shop is literally a short walk away and it amazes me that not many people know of it.

Image

Shopping here is a breeze!  There are no crowds and stock is plentiful.  Clothing, sunglasses, bags, belts, perfumes and even small toys are sold here by the helpful and always friendly, Wayan.  He will offer you bottled water, just as Ketut does (and has even been known to offer a Bintang!!)

Image

By shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, you are continuing to support her family and benefiting from a trustworthy fixed price source.

  • Did you know that Ketut is one of 9 children?  (8 girls and 1 boy, Wayan).

Capturing precious memories in PAINT…

20140329-152314.jpg

With the assistance of our average phone cameras these days, we’re easily able to capture special photos of loved ones including family, friends and pets – and holiday snaps too!

Have you ever considered having these photos transformed into paintings?  A favourite photo or memory captured forever in paint.

There are a number of artists on the island of Bali who do these. My all time favourite however, is Julio at Julio’s Art Gallery in downtown Legian.

He has artfully captured the essence of my children on canvas, from photo’s and I adore his ability.  I really do recommend Julio highly!

image  image

Just take a photo for him to paint and depending on workload, a painting will be ready in about 3-4 days.  They’re a  fabulous keepsake for your family and something that can be passed on for future generations.  I have seen family pets, loved ones who’ve passed, wedding moments and special family portraits there all captured by Julio in paint.

Examples of some of his in-shop art work below of well know celebs for sale…

Sunset gazing at La Plancha…

Image

La Plancha is casual, sunset dining at its easiest.  Pull up a brightly-coloured bean bag and enjoy the view.  Simple, unpretentious Spanish food.  Be sure to arrive early to secure a seat as the bean bags are taken quickly.

A popular and arguably romantic beachfront location for sunset gazing over the Indian Ocean.

On trend – stylish PIMENT ROUGE for homewares…

PIMENT ROUGE – Homewares

Image

When it comes to homewares, Bali is on trend. A few years ago, when building a new house in Australia, I topped up my container of imported goods with assorted purchases from the very stylish “Piment Rouge” homeware store. Unique decorator items are sold here including soft furnishings, bed linens and furniture.

Image

Bedside lamps, placemats and table runners, ornaments, vases, paintings and various unique items I had not seen elsewhere, I enthusiastically purchased at bargain basement prices. I am still so thrilled with the items – each holding a special memory of the time I sourced them.

Image

On each return trip to Bali, I never fail to stop in at Piment Rouge – usually on Monkey Forest Road, Ubud or Jalan Raya Seminyak.

Image

Pigment Rouge’s Factory showroom is at Jl. Serangan No 3, Pengubengan Kauh, Kerobokan, telephone: 0361 738 411. Retail stores include Jl. Raya Seminyak 60X, Seminyak; and Jl. Purabagus Taruna No 513, Legian.

Tres chic Pearl: a hidden gem!

PEARL Hotel, Legian

20130910-132423.jpg

Situated down a short driveway off busy Jalan Double Six, this charming boutique hotel is a delightful oasis of calm. There are only approximately 16 rooms wrapping around a modest azure pool in an intimate, tropical setting. Shaded day beds poolside, piled with cushions, are a restful place to relax with a cocktail or two.

The Pearl hotel has a NO child policy and there is NO swim up bar. This ensures a quiet and peaceful sanctuary.

20130910-132538.jpg

The hotel is conveniently located with the beach a pleasurable 5 minute stroll away in one direction and the wallet emptying shopping strip of Jalan Legian on the other.

I only stayed here one night as a last minute booking, but would happily return. The understated rooms are spacious and clean, though simply decorated. The bathrooms are generous, with some opening partially to the outdoors. Mozzies therefore can be an issue, so come prepared!

The gardens are pleasantly lush and typically Balinese.

20130910-132451.jpg

A simple, uncomplicated breakfast is included in the reasonable room cost. Breakfast can be delivered to your balcony, though there is no daily room service. Wifi is strong.

20130910-132525.jpg

Conveniently, the much coveted and well renowned French “Pearl Restaurant” is within the hotel grounds. An enchanting garden setting filled with fairy lights compliments the superb food with its outstanding presentation.

20130910-132517.jpg

I would recommend this hotel as a quiet, modest getaway. It is an ideal lady’s solo accommodation with secure, gated grounds and staff that are attentive and welcome you like family.

A little gem of a hotel!

HINT: Book an upstairs room if possible, as there is some noise on the ground floor from movement overhead.
