Our second stop on our Asian adventure was the beautiful and dreamy island of Bali. We were attending the wedding of my cousin which took place at the St Regis. Organizing the photos from our stay at The St Regis resort is making me totally depressed and I am already dying to go back.
We arrived at the resort around midnight hot, tired, and delirious and as soon as we walked into the hotel lobby we just could not believe our eyes. The St Regis Bali is absolutely stunning! The hotel staff are just the friendliest and most helpful people I have ever met. We stayed in a suite which is the basic room at this resort and the room is enormous. There is an entry area in the suite where we stored the buggy and pool stuff which was really nice to have all that stuff out of the way. The king size bed was super comfy and the gigantic bathroom was over the top luxurious. The room rate we had included the breakfast buffet and we had a feast every morning. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the enormous selection of seafood, dim sum, sushi, Chines and Indonesian cuisine, exotic fruits, fresh baked pastries and bread. In addition to the buffet there was a menu to order off of that was included in the price of the buffet. The menu included smoothies, steak and eggs, lobster omelet, pancakes, waffles and so much more. Normally I am not that into buffets but the quality of food was truly amazing.
The best part of the hotel has to be the two stunning pools and the incredible beach. In the center of the hotel there is a gigantic lagoon swimming pool and if you stayed in one of the villas you can walk right into the lagoon from the back of your villa. Next to the beach there are a series of beautiful pools surrounded by elegant canopied lounge areas. The little monster loved every second of swimming in the pools and relaxing on the beach.
The St Regis has a Remede Spa that offers a wide range of massages, treatments and has a Aqua Vitality Pool (basically a large jacuzzi with different zones and jets). I had an incredible 2 hour slimming treatment that included a scrub, full body seaweed mask, and massage. My only complaint is that it ended too soon. My husband relaxed in the Vitality Pool and had a fabulous Balinese massage.
The St Regis is super kid friendly. The staff are always smiling and all seem to adore children. Every restaurant had high chairs, crayons, and kids menu (they were more than happy to make anything you wanted if it wasn't on the menu). The Deli is open all day and is a great place for snacks and a quick casual bite. The Deli serves drinks, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, such, desserts, ice cream, and all sorts of chips, cookies, and candies. So perfect for the kids.
We had such an amazing experience at the St Regis and highly recommend this resort to anyone with or without children. Bali is such a beautiful island and the Balinese are such welcoming people.
