Hi loves! How are you? We are great, enjoying Bali to the fullest. As you know, we started our trip in Nusa Dua, which was an amazing start of our island life. Our second destination was Sanur. It was not the first time here, we visited Sanur two times before, and we really like it. It’s amazing for sunrise and we remember joining a sunrise-yoga class on the beach so we really wanted to do that again.

This time we stayed at The Pavilions, a little villa resort in the centre of Sanur. The villas are designed to confer the utmost comfort, with a variety of lounging options indoors and out. Our favorite spot was at the main pool. Even tough we had our private pool, it was low season and it seemed that everyone preferred to do tours our stay in their own villa, since the main pool was our own. Loved it. There was butler service and the staff was very kind. Nothing we asked for was too crazy and they were very helpful. One day we had our breakfast at the pool, and that was the best day.
When you check in at The Pavilions, you will be welcomed with not only with a drink, also with a 15 minutes foot massage. We really loved it! Such a good idea and helps you feel relaxed from the very beginning. Every hotel should do that.
The resort is not on the beach-side, however, they offer a complementary shuttle service to the beach, where there are sunbeds from the resorts, worked perfect for us.
As we told you before, we are not huge fans of having dinner in the hotel that we are staying in. Dinner is a perfect chance to get some local food at a local restaurant, however, after reading lots of amazing reviews about the food at The Pavilions, we decided to try it one night. We had the most amazing Balinese dinner with the best dessert ever. That was the night that we had Dadar Gulung for the first time, and that was so yummy! It’s a traditional pandan pancake filled with coconut magic.. It’s a crime if you don’t try it! We have tried that dessert 6 times already somewhere else, and we never get such a good taste again.. would defiantly go back for that dish!
If you planning to visit Bali, you should for sure put Sanur on your list. And The Pavilions is for sure the place to be, HERE!

Hi babes! How are you? Hope everything’s great!

We have been flying again. This time a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. A few years ago, we did the same trip and we did it by bus, since it’s only 5 hours and it seemed like less time waste than flying (with traveling to the airport, being there 2 hours before, arriving in KL Airport which is far from the city), however this time, the busses were leaving at 8:00 am or later, and it seemed like a waste of our morning and since we were staying at Banyan Tree, we wanted to arrive as early as possible. Super early flight it was!

We have been to KL many times and we are not sure what it is with this city but we LOVE it! The atmosphere is so chill and the people are kind, the prices are low and it feels like a very big and modern place, so we love everything about it. Never skip it, cause KL is amazing, but oh gush, it’s so HOT here! ☀

Luckily we are able to enjoy KL a lot from the cool swimming pool we have in our hotel. We. Love. This. Hotel. ♥️ We are staying at the Pavilion hotel of Banyan Tree in the central Bukit area. It’s like a fairytale! Everything is so chic and well organised. Our room has a view on the KL Tower. This high tower shows off an awesome light show when it’s dark, so it seems like a little disco party in our room every night (we love it!). The view is just AMAZING. And we love how they have put our bathtub in front of it! That’s really our style of bathing ✨ We stayed for just three days and we have both been in bath 4 times already. Can’t help it.We loved the restaurant here, called Horizon Grill. This actually is the highest restaurant in KL, how cool! 😱 It is located at 57th floor and besides the view on the Patronas twin towers, the food was so good. The chef prepared all kinds of amazing dishes for us, and we were very surprised by every single one of those. We started our meal with oysters, fresh tuna and a salat. The codfish is one of the dishes you need to try and the ribeye steak is to die for. We are not huge fans of staying in for dinner (since we love to discover everything about the cities we travel to), but here, you need to have your dinner at least once ❤

The spa treatment was one of our absolute highlights here. Nothing better than a 90 minutes full body massage, right? It was the best massage we ever had 🙌🏼 And after our treatment, we had some snacks and a very yummy tea with an amazing view on the 53rd floor. Just perfect!

We were so sad we had to leave this place, because it was one of those luxury hotels you don’t ever want to leave. We will now continue our Asia trip to Indonesia, where lots of other great hotels are waiting for us.

If you are planning a trip to KL, you NEED to check out Banyan Tree HERE! Talk to you in Bali, loves!

Hi babes! How are you? Everything’s just fine here. Work, work and more work. As we told you before, this vacay is unfortunately 100% a vacay.. We have so much work to get done, while traveling, so we actually have very long days, starting at 6:00 am every morning. Thee, yoga, little breakfast, work, work, work, a little swim in the sun, lunch and work until dinner. This is how our days look like for the upcoming weeks. However, we try to enjoy as much as possible and it feels so good to just get things done. Gives us a lot of energy.

Some of you asked about our 3-day Singapore trip and some tips, so here it is. Since we have been to Singapore so many times, we could skip the very touristic activities. We always like to go back to cities we love, and just discover more and more.

We slept at The Quincy Hotel, a modern business boutique hotel. It has even won the Singapore’s Tourism Awards, and we totally get why. The staff is so helpful and friendly! They really made our stay so great. Another great thing about this exclusive hotel is the amazing pool where you can cool off in the water but still swim in the sun at the same time. We had the Quincy’s Qool Weekend package during our stay, and it included breakfast, all day refreshments, cocktails and movie night at the pool. We really love when hotels organize such cool packages, it makes your stay so special.

The hotel is very close to the shopping mall Far East Plaza, so it’s an amazing location if you like a little shopping (as we do ‍). It’s less than a 5 minute walk away, so that’s just in time before you really start to melt in the street. Also, it’s really close to the airport so that’s a big plus as well!

In short: we really loved this place and especially all the sweet people working there. If you would like to check it out, click HERE! Have a great day ahead lovelies!

Hi loves! How are you doing? We are great! We just checked out at the loveliest place, and are about to leave Nusa Dua. Feeling a little sad, since we had such a wonderful stay. On the other side, we have tons of new adventures coming up the next weeks, so we are still very excited. As you must have seen on Instagram, we were staying at Awarta Resort. You had so many questions, so we will try to answer them all in this blog 🙂

Straight from the airport (picked up by the kindest driver), we arrived at Awarta Resort. We were very stressed after a long flight and very little sleep the day before, but the second you walk in, you forget everything. It is so peaceful and just beautiful. We were welcomed by the staff with a very nice drink and two lovely little ladies (which were veeeery cute). They started their Balinese dance, and it was AMAZING! Three minutes of total peace in your mind. It was wonderful how such a little girls are able to perform such a complicated dance. Wauw Awarta! After that we went to our villa, which felt like home right away. We were stying at one of the One Bedroom Private Pool Villa’s. It offers absolute privacy and an amazing garden with our very own private pool and a faux waterfall (which makes you feel zen 24/7). We felt like we were the only once in the world and we really love that feeling.

We are visiting Bali with some friends, and on our second day, it was the birthday of Maartje. We asked if the staff would be so kind to place a little candle in her breakfast, but she prepared a little birthday cake instead, that was sooo kind! Private pool, an amazing villa and a birthday cake, could you think of a better start of your birthday?! At the same day, we visited the spa and it is absolutely a must when you stay at Awarta! We had a 2,5 hour treatment, with a scrub, a massage and a jacuzzi. It was great to do with friends, however, it would also be a great romantic night with your partner ❤

During the 7th of March, which is a holiday in Bali (the silent day), we were not allowed to leave the resort, and still we had the best day! We slept in, had a late breakfast and just enjoyed the silence and our villa. We had dinner at Ru Yi, which is a Chinese fine dining restaurant and it was all so delicious. We tried some topical Chinese dishes (like corn soup and short ribs), and enjoyed the view of the main pool. Best night if you ask us!

At Awarta you feel that the staff is doing everything they can to make you feel as comfortable as being home, but in a luxury space and bespoke services extended to any of your personal need. We saw that Awarta has an very unique award, namely World’s Best Boutique Hotel 2018! If you think of the fact that 300 other boutique hotels around the world were nominated, it’s truly performance! Well done! It’s totally deserved ❤

If you feel like a little luxury, you NEED to put Awarta Nusa Dua on your list for you next Bali trip. You can check them out HERE!

Hi babes! How are you? After many euro trips it is finally time to travel a little further again, yay! Due to so many things going on back home (we stared a new company!), we had no time to be away for more than 4 days.. We arranged everything in a way, that we can keep working fulltime but still travel for 6 week. We will see how it will work out ❤

Our first stop of 3 days was Dubai. We absolutely love this classy city with its gorgeous buildings like the Burj Khalifa and the Burj al Arab. So many things to see and you never get enough of it. A classy city like Dubai goes with a classy hotel, right? We got to stay at Aloft in the city centre. And it was amazing.

Our room was at the top floor. The view was SO BEAUTIFUL! We don’t think you could have a better view all over Dubai than this. Especially at night, when all building lights began to shine. So pretty! We actually slept with the curtains open so we would wake up with our eyes directly looking at this perfect view.

You could also enjoy this view on Dubai from the pool area. And oh we did love this pool. May we swim and relax here every day please? 💁🏼‍♀

Last but not least: the COCKTAILS! 🍸 Our favorite drink when on vacation (and when not on vacation). The cocktails are made by a professional cocktail shaker and they are absolutely amazing. We actually love every bartender who is able to shake some gorgeous, photogenic and delicious pink cocktails.

Guess it’s obvious that staying at Aloft really completed our Dubai trip. We loved it. Hope you have an amazing week! We’ll keep you posted on our further travelling.

If you are planning a trip to Dubai soon, you need to check out Aloft City Centre HERE!

How are you doing? Last week we came back from our little trip to London. Don’t know what it is, we have been there 29838237346 times and every single time, we love that city even more. This time we have stayed at this amazing luxury spot located in the center of London: Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Resedences.

The ambiance and the service here is absolutely amazing!! We loved how the staff was so alert and attentive to us. Also, they really blew us away with all the special things they had planned for us. So sweet!

We got to enjoy an amazing blowdry from Dar from celebrity hairdresser Hair by Dar. We could not take our eyes away from the colourful flower wall there. Furthermore, we had an extreme relaxing massage in the spa, which has just been renewed over the last period of time and has nog even officially been opened yet! But we can tell you a little secret: it looks AMAZING! The Jiva spa is brand new and looks gorgeous, with all the marble details and it’s lovely and relaxing smell. You can see it HERE! 

One of the best parts of our stay was the possibility to enjoy the most perfect high tea in the whole world, including a pink musically carrousel and more cute sweets you can imagine. May we have this high tea every day please?

Last but not least: we absolutely loooved our two bed- and bathroom appartment! The beds are so soft that we don’t ever want to go home. Hopefully, it won’t take long for us to come back here again!

Hi loves! How are you? We are great, just enjoying the great weather in the Netherlands. Lots of you were asking us about our stay at Longevity in Algarve, so we decided to do a blog about it.

As you know, we really LOVE all kind of food, especially sweet stuff, as ice-cream, cookies, chocolate and go on. When Longevity proposed a Juice Detox Short Break, we knew we had to try that! This juice program takes at least three days and cleanse your whole body. It boosts your health with a mild detoxifying diet or juice fasting, cleansing Spa treatments and energizing daily group activities. We knew it would be hard for us, to miss all the sweets and wine for a few days, but we think that a healthy body is also very important, so we gave it a try. We had 5 liquid meals a day and lots of tea and water. It seemed very hard to do, but the ambiance in the resort is so zen and healthy, that you really get motivated. And also, it was great weather, so that helped a lot. We always feel less hungry when it’s hot outside. We really didn’t expect that, but it was really fun to do! Every day, there are different activities organized, as yoga, pilates, stretching, core training, fit ball, zumba, jogging, bike tour and different walks, which you can join, and we really liked that.

The resort itself, is really beautiful, with a huge pool and all these little cute colorful houses. The restaurant is opened for the juices, but they of course also serve (healthy) food, for people who does’t want to do the liquid diet. You can do the diet for 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7. At first, 3 days seemed a lot for us, the always hungry food lovers, but afterwards, we would love to do that for 7 days! It’s really relaxing and we felt soooo recharged after the short stay of 3 days. It was fun to see, that lots of different people join the diet. We have seen lots of girlfriends, doing it together, but also couples and people alone. Young and old. Really cool! We can’t wait to go back for a little longer very soon ❤

Hi loves! How are you doing? We are great, just got back from our vacay in Portugal and oh we miss it already. One of our absolutely favorites stays where at Onyria Palmares. As soon as we arrived, we fall in love with this place. We had such a warm welcome, a little tour through the resort and a glass of champagne. They absolutely know how to give their guests the best feeling.

Our stay was absolutely incredible. The rooms are decorated in soft colors (LOVE!!!), very stylish, and have everything you may need during the stay. All of them offer a generous balcony, both in space and amazing views of the Portugese sea ❤ We spend most of our stay on that balcony! The view is just breathtaking.. 

The pool was our second favorite place in the resort. Since it’s not a huge pool, we thought it would be very crowded during the day and that we couldn’t enjoy the peacefulness of the place. But nothing was further from the truth. Even though the resort was completely fully booked, we had the feeling that we had everything for ourselves. Not many hotels manage to give that feeling, so well done! ❤ We are the kind of people who could stay at the pool all day, and just relax, cause it’s vacay! Yet we have decided that we need to visit the beach at least once during our stay, since Portugese beaches are soooo gorgeous. It looked pretty far, but it seemed to be just a 15 min walk, and for lazy people like us, they bring you down with a golf buggy. It’s great to drive along the green of 27 holes of they unique golf course ❤ To arrive at almost empty beach, a dream! 

Since it was just a short drive to Lagos, we have planned to drive down there for dinner every day. However, we didn’t expect that the hotel restaurant would be so good, that we stayed in almost every night, haha! They have a great menu, witch cozy ambiance and of course, great view! 

Nestled in the green go the fairways, with its phenomenal views of the Lagos Bay, and a great service, our stay was really indescribable. You guys can check them out HERE! We actually can’t wait to go back ASAP!

Two Seasons Bayside Resort 

Hi sweeties! We were actually not done with showing you Two Seasons in Coron. Before we have left Coron, we had to stay at least one night in Coron Town. We wanted to do little shopping, have dinner in the town and visit the local spa’s. Two Seasons Bayside is a perfect place to stay while you’re in town. There is a huge pool with sunbeds to relax during the day, facing the bay of Coron Town, which is really awesome! The days can be pretty hot in the Philippines, so we were really glad with the pool. They have these rooms with an AMAZING view over the bay. We were so happy that we booked one of those. Waking up to this view is all you can wish for right? And that bathtub.. During our two days stay, we have used that one over 4 times, haha! You guys should check them out!

Hi loves! How are you? So many of you asked about our route in the Philippines, and we didn’t even tell you the best part yet. Whenever you are planning a trip to the Philippines, you can’t skip El Nido and Coron. Coron was a real paradise. We have stayed in Two Seasons Coron Island, and that was pure magic. This beautiful resort is known as the first eco-friendly luxury resort in Coron.

Two Seasons is located about 20 km from Coron town and can be reached by a private speed boat from the resort. The boat is really luxury and the ride feels actually as a trip itself. Once we arrived, we realized that the resort is on a private island. Among the myriad things to look forward to is a sandbar connecting to a islet, a vibrant house reef, lush tropical gardens, a 200-meter west-side beach, and another 200-meter east-side beach with mangroves.

When we arrived, we couldn’t believe our eyes; the beach is white and the water super clear, picture perfect if you ask us. The mini villa’s are well occupied and the mini bar is included. We had a jacuzzi on our terrace, with a sea view.. Make sure to request room 101, cause that’s absolutely a dream.

Once we arrived in the resort, we realized the Coron Town is a little to far to visit during the day, and we were afraid we would get bored in the few days that we were staying on this private island. However, there are so many activities which you can do during your stay, that you won’t have time to be bored. There is an Aqua Sports Center, where you can get yourself a snorkel, kayak, standup paddle and so on. The water is so clear and there is so much waterlife, so we have snorkeled for hours, kayaked around the island and tanned on a standup paddle. Two Seasons offers a lot of different tours, so we have visited different lagoons and islands nearby. There is also a spa, a library, a gym and a DVD Player (with lots of movies) in every room, and a KARAOKE BAR.. The restaurant has such a extensive menu that you can eat something different every day for a month! No need to leave the island at all, haha!

An absolute recommendation when you visit Coron!

Have a lovely night babes.
