Bali : Sanur Pitstop | AYANA SPA

I had such a great time in Lembongan, it would have been greater if I could stay a little longer! Clearly 4 days 3 nights wasn't enough at all. Headed straight to Bali early morning on the 4th day of our trip and took the morning boat ride! The ride back wasn't as bad, but it was a long ride indeed. 2 hours and I was starving in the boat so badly.

It was my second time visiting Bali, but it was a whole new and different experience to me considered everything has changed so much in 6 years.


Ahhhh! Kinda miss this place right now. 



At the jetty doing touristy shots trying to be all artsy fartsy :p 


The boat dropped us back to the Sanur jetty and there is where I discovered these lovely dream catchers that is sold at a market along the jetty. Got one for myself and Angelina. 



I could stare at them all day and day dream about myself being in every corner of the world (ULTIMATE WISHLIST!) 


As I mentioned that I was really hungry so we went on a food hunt around the neighbourhood! To be honest we didn't know what's good to eat around at first, so we decided to follow the 'crowd'. Barged into this restaurant full of people we had zero clue about, all I see is fish dishes everywhere. But it turns out to be a great discover!

The queue was really long, and it got very chaotic to find a seat with our luggages by our side. But there were some locals who were kind enough to share their table with us! So we sat down and started to order exactly what they were having. 


As a Malaysian, I'm no stranger to fried fish! But this is one damn good fried fish served with sambal chilli. 


And the cucumber fish soup is just tantalising. I finished every single bit of it and it just makes me crave for even more! I have never loved fishy stuff in my life (except for Japanese), but this place has changed a lot of my perception towards fish dishes and also I learnt how to appreciate it even more now!


Do drop by Warung Mak Beng if you happened to be at Sanur!


The first day in Bali was truly an amazing and memorable one. After a scrumptious meal at Sanur, I am so lucky and honoured to escape the pressures of daily life in paradise at one of the most luxurious resort in Bali. 

AYANA Resort was the perfect place for rest, relaxation, romance and more. We were picked up and transferred to Spa lobby at the AYANA Resort for some massive pampering! I was really excited and so ready for it after a few days of exhausting of water sports and etc. 



The moment I stepped into the lobby, I couldn't believe my eyes. The landscaped tropical garden was such a breathtaking sight. Every corner of the place was beyond perfect! It was a luxurious haven of tranquility and pleasure.

There's nothing you can complain about the top notch service, and even the beverages they serve were absolutely tasty! Lemongrass drink was so refreshing I couldn't help myself but to have more. I have no shame when it comes to good stuff :))



Took some time to chill at the mini pagoda and to unwind. Checked out the menu for rejuvenating treatments. The extensive spa menu offers both ancient Eastern and Western healing therapies and treatments, and non surgical cosmetic procedures such as anti ageing facials and body slimming. The highest quality beauty products are used including La Mer, Thermes Marins and LPG technology.



Spacious changing and shower rooms. It has everything that you need!

Finally made my decision and went for the 2 hour session of Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool,  a treatment that is performed in a pool, and I made my way around 60 hydro massage stations to help combat the effects of jet lag, and improve circulation and lymphatic drainage!


If you think the SPA lobby is breathtaking enough, wait till you check out the Aquatonic Pool area. I was completely blown away!!


And this is not all. Apparently AYANA offers an exclusive spa service in a villa that is anchored on rocks amidst of the ocean! I have checked out the pictures of their exclusive service, which was absolutely insane. 

This exclusive SPA thingy is officially a part of my Christmas wish list, next year. That's right, plan ahead! Hehe.



I can feel every inch of my muscles being stimulated by the strong current of the pool, and the water is warm which was nice, it felt so good getting a nice boost! 






I left feeling refreshed and ready to party after a good 2 hour massage! I was so ready to check out the other facilities and most importantly, the restaurant and Rock Bar Bali which will be featured on my upcoming post so stay tuned!

Classic eye looks.

I get questioned a lot when it comes to the brand and color of my contact lenses that I’m using. Contact lenses are one of the must have cosmetic essentials in my list. They do not only make my eyes pop, but they also complete and bring out the whole style that I’m going for.

If you’re one of those people who wear colored contact lenses for cosmetic reasons, it's still vital to observe careful hygiene and not to wear them for too long. Also, buy them from a reputable source. One of the brands that I personally LOVEEEEE is definitely Alcon’s FreshLook ColorBlends contact lens series.

Wearing the same color contact lenses everyday can be boring and stale! That’s why I love swapping different colors every month!

They have 12 colors and I tried almost every color they have! So far I have tried on green, amethyst, pure hazel, gray, brown, blue and honey.

My favorites would be amethyst, green and pure hazel. If you’re wondering would it be weird to put on extreme colors such as green or amethyst, the answer is NO! They look absolutely natural and subtle. Sometimes no one can tell that I’m wearing color contact lenses at all! 
There are two basic make up that I usually go for which is suitable for any kinds of occasion.

The Hollywood glamour. Classic red lips, simple eyeliner and mascara with brown contact lenses by Alcon! Chose simple earthy shades for my eyes so it’ll look more natural and clean cause the red lips has already drawn a lot of attention.

Demure cat eye look! I’m not a huge fan of smokey cat eyes, so I did a demure version of it! As you see the make up is isn’t as bold, and the gray colored contact lenses gave a foxy and mysterious touch towards this look!

Alcon’s FreshLook ColorBlends contact lenses’ 3-in-1 color technology blends in really well with my own eye color, hence why my eye color looks natural at all times! And most importantly, these soft lenses are really comfortable. I can wear them all day without feeling any dryness or pain!
