Hotel Tugu in Canggu 🌴 Bali
.
@tuguhotels - One of the most interesting hotels I have stayed at. The owner has collected antiques to preserve his love of Bali and placed them all throughout the hotel personally. You can feel the intimate touch of this care. You won’t know where to look and each piece has a history and story to be told.
.
This is the front entrance to the @jirestaurant. It might take awhile to go inside and taste the amazing food because there is so much to look at even before you enter. Tip: The views (and breezes) from the top level of this restaurant are fantastic!

Breezy days in Canggu.

Give me a fresh young coconut to sip on with music in the air.

Perfection! ✨

Walking into the clouds ✨

A walk down a path led to this bamboo restaurant.
-
The inside was even better... all the bamboo and lines draw your eyes everywhere.
-
There is just something about buildings from natural products that I love. Don’t you agree ... the rooms have a different feel than concrete on your soul?
-
This one has no walls and views and sounds of the river while you dine.
-
I fell in live with the entire concept of @fivelementsretreats on my day-trip there. This place is not just about healing through its spa & dining, but also an aspiration for bridging the wisdom, philosophies and healing practices of traditional cultures with innovative wellness services.
-
The founders are from Bali, Italy, Switzerland and USA. Imagine the best of those mindsets all in this one place.

Fire ceremony @fiveelements .
It’s hard to say there was a highlight to the day, as the dining and spa experience were flawless, BUT the fire ceremony was the highlight simply because it was something I had never experienced before.
.
The fire ceremony is called “Agni Hotra” with Agni means ‘fire’ and Hotra means ‘healing’.
.
It is an initiation into the healing space that is Fivelements, an opportunity to experience one of the highest Vedic rituals, and to set your intention.
.
This one was one to remember.

This is such a special hotel with boutique rooms. This one, PURI LE MAYEUR, floats on a lotus pond. The inside celebrates the eternal love between the famous Belgian artist, Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merprès who lived in Bali and Ni Polok, his muse.
-
The inside is stunning with beautiful artwork and views of the pond. There is a warmth to staying in a place with history and personal momentos.
-
Everything in this hotel has a story to be told.

What if you simply devoted this year to loving yourself more? ❤️
-
Valentine’s Day - for most it’s a love/hate relationship with this holiday. We love the love but are often disappointed by our expectations. What was intended to be a day to show a token of our special affection our loved ones has turned into an over-sensationalized day. The lack of daily love has turned into a hole that now has huge expectations to be filled.
-
But what if we did this daily in our interactions with our loved ones? What if we did this daily in how we treat ourselves?
-
If you are looking for love on Valentine’s Day… maybe....start with yourself. ❤️
-
This was my Valentine’s to myself. Some quiet reflective time in paradise @ritzcarltonbali - to re-center, to re-energize and to show myself some love.

Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?
-
Moments like these quiet everything down to get down to this question.
-
I was deep in thought on this today and posted a question in my IG stories… how many have found their sweet spot of purpose. Only 10% said yes.

Time to focus on some truths.

Inspired ….
... by the view
... by the architecture
... by the light
... by the feeling
... by the vision
-
This pretty much sums up my entire experience in Bali and especially @ritzcarlton. Effortless happiness abounds and this becomes effortless inspiration… to reset, to re-energize, to dream.

Terima Kasih ~ Thank you

Simple moments....

I have been treated to so many activities at the @ritzcarltonbali the including several types of yoga, cooking classes, bonfires, massages, and savory dining options. Today was a day for rest and relaxation. Bali’s rainy season held out and I was treated to a gorgeous sunrise, sunset and blue skies in between.
-
So many gorgeous views looking out into the Indian ocean. There is so much beauty in Bali from the views, to the people, to the wonderful environments created in this tropical paradise.

🌴 Have you Bali’d?

And suddenly you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.

Another gorgeous day at the @ritzcarltonbali. A little something for everyone here from honeymooners, couples, vacationers, families, retirees. The expansive property never feels crowded with so many nooks and views to have your own piece of paradise.
-
Yesterday I tried hydro yoga and today was hi-fly yoga. Check my Insta-stories… I am not going to be joining Cirque du Soleil anytime soon, but nevertheless, I feel a little “bendier” and stretched out. Getting healthy is inevitable here between the programs and then just the peace of mind in my little oasis.
-
A beautiful experience at the @ritzcarltonbali and made even more special by the people. Your vibe attracts your tribe and in this case.. the tribe is changing my vibe. Special people with smiles and joy to layer your soul with joy… and spark the magic.
