I don’t even know how to start this because I’m so freakin excited. I’m headed back to Bali in August and you’re all coming with me…well, 10 (now 11) of you are. That’s right, you asked and I have answered with STYLING CURVY ON TOUR- BALI 2017. I received so many messages asking me to put on a bali tour so I’m taking a leap of faith and I’m actually doing this!
The holiday side of things is a cinch, I can totally hang with ten of my gorgeous community for a few days. The actual logistics though scares the crappers outa me. I mean there’s bookings, insurance, tours, accommodation and all the other stuff that makes my eyes glaze over…so I’ve enlisted help.
I handed all the details and booking stuff over to the amazing ladies at ‘Invigorate You Travel’.
Julie and Kellie from Invigorate You Travel have been amazing. I told them what I wanted this trip to ‘look and feel’ like and they delivered beyond my expectations. There were emails and phone calls (even over the weekend) and now we have the perfect escape for the Styling Curvy Community. Thanks Julie and Kellie, you really took the stress out of this for me. You can follow Invigorate You Travel on their Facebook HERE and Instagram HERE.
WHERE WE ARE STAYING
We will be staying at Peppers Resort in Seminyak and if its a sellout will take over 2 ultra-luxury Five-Bedroom Presidential Pool Villas. All Villas feature large private swimming pools with teak wooden decking and reclining loungers, and are surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens.
The living and dining areas feature fully equipped gourmet kitchens with full-size refrigerators. These Villas have four bedrooms with king bed and a bedroom with two single beds. All bedrooms will have turn down service and air-conditioning with ceiling fans, vital for this menopausal woman. They also have ensuite master bathrooms with bath robes, marble floors, spacious wardrobes and study desks. Bedrooms also feature flat screen televisions with integrated DVD system and satellite channels, IDD telephones, internet access and digital safety deposit boxes.
Sweet baby cheeses, it’s so divine. I may never come home.
DAY 1 – Friday 25th August, 2017
Welcome to Bali! After clearing customs, you will be met by a representative of Invigorate You Travel and transferred to Peppers Seminyak. I will be there to welcome you so we can hug it out, enjoy a welcome drink, chat and hang by the pool like the freakin goddesses we are. As group participants may be arriving at different times, the remainder of the day is yours to make your own discoveries.
DAY 2 – Saturday 26th August, 2017
RELAX & REJUVENATE
Wake to your tranquil surrounds and enjoy some light yoga within your private villa. YES! we are going to move and bend our bodies, it will be in our private villa so don’t fear the yoga fart…you’re amongst friends.
After we have fed our souls with yoga it will be time to feed our bellies with breakfast at the resort, then get comfy because I have a three hour interactive style and body confidence workshop for you. This is where we ‘lose’ what’s holding us back and ‘gain’ a shitload of confidence. I can’t wait.
Just in case we run over time because, why wouldn’t a group of women chatty women do so?…I’ve organized a fresh and healthy lunch within your villa. Then it’s time to step from your luxury villa and into the indulgent Spa at Peppers Seminyak. With a range of detoxifying and stress-releasing treatments promoting healing, balance and beauty, Spa at Peppers Seminyak will help you look and feel your optimal best. Guests travelling with Styling Curvy enjoy a credit of IDR500,000 (approximately $50AUD) voucher to use at the Spa on a treatment of your choice. Some services need to be pre-booked so please speak to the Spa staff for more information. Feel free to add some extra dollars to your voucher to enjoy something extra fancy. No planned dinner but I reckon I’m headed to Motel Mexicola for some tequila, quesadillas and dancing, feel free to join me. (B, L)
Day 3 – Sunday 27th August, 2017
LET’S DISCOVER BALI
Thanks to Curvy by Capriosca you will all receive a brand new cossie and sarong so let’s put it to use with Aqua Aerobics in your private pool within your villa. I know right, it’s gonna be fun and I know there will be some giggles. After breakfast at the resort lets pack a bag and discover Bali.
Today you have the services of a vehicle, driver and a qualified guide so join me for a trip to Canguu and the gorgeous Bungalow Living store. Then it’s back to Seminyak for a little spot of shopping and high tea at Biku. Alternatively, you can also choose to discover Bali independently on this day. Please note, high tea is not included in cost. It’s a big day so in the evening you can choose to stay in and order room service or let’s discover the laneways and head out for an impromptu dinner (at own cost). (B)
Day 4 – Monday 28th August, 2017
Following breakfast you will be transferred to Ubud for your visit to Fivelements. Fivelements is an award winning eco-wellness retreat bridging the wisdom of traditional healing cultures with innovative wellness concepts. Holy shit, once I saw this place I had to include it in the package, you are all going to love yourselves like Queens after this day!
Nestled alongside the Ayung River, you will be immersed in a traditional healing ritual of ‘deep bodywork’ or ‘energy balancing’ performed by Balinese healers whose gifted talents have been handed down through generations. This is followed by a ‘three course gourmet lunch’ at the ‘Sakti Dining Room’ and access to swimming pool facilities at the retreat. The Sakti Dining Room features plant based, raw vegan living foods cuisine. All that healing and healthy food will balance out the bread and butter pudding that you know you will consume every day at breakfast 🙂 Oh, and bring your cossie because there’s a beautiful riverfront pool and lounge to enjoy.
On the way home to Seminyak, let’s stop at Ubud town centre and visit Ubud Market. Located at the corner of Jl Monkey Forest and Jl Raya Ubud, this is a double storey warren of stalls bursting at the seams with wood carvings, batik shirts, sarongs, and all manner of other souvenirs aimed specifically at tourists. The merchants here haggle hard with tourists for a living, and think nothing of asking for ten times the going price, so have fun. Let’s play it by ear for dinner, I think we will be floating on air so may just do something low key. (B,L)
Day 5 – Tuesday 29th August, 2017
Let’s start with a group yoga on our last morning in Bali, followed by a long leisurely breakfast together. Today there is time for some last minute shopping, dining or perhaps a spa treatment before you are transferred to the airport for your departure flight home. My flight is late so if you feel inclined then join me for lunch at Batik, I love it there and had to fit in a visit. If needed late check out has been arranged until 6pm. (B)
