My new experience in Bali villa rental:
Hi my name is Jessie and I am a true blue Sydney boy who has just returned from his first trip in Bail and his first engagement. Previous to my departure I only known Bali as a small island located in Indonesia or affectionately known by my friends as the Island of the Gods. Renowned for it's rich culture, exotic scenery, great surfing, and friendly people I was soon excited to see the world famous island of Bali.
Friends who have visited to Bali notified me that I should experience the beauties that Bali has to offer whilst enjoying the comforts of a paradise Bali villa rental. A villa? I first thought. Why would I stay in a villa rather then a hotel. To tell you the truth I never stayed in a villa and it seemed that hotels was the only choice of accommodation whilst you are travelling. However my girlfriend insisted that we experience this new accommodation forus.
We started searching for Bali villa rental service in Bali on the net and stumbled upon to paradise villa rental. We simply sent them an email asking for availability in villas in the Seminyak area for a few days followed by Ubud for a few days and a villa in the Bukit in our price range. I later wasprovided with a shortlist of villas with a description& images and
information of the location of the villa which was really helpful. Soon after choosing our villas, we were ready to enjoy Bali without the stress of thinking of finding accommodation in a Bali when we were there.
Upon my arrival to Bali to the moment I went back to Sydney I was treated like a Rock star. A VIP service pick-up was arranged where we given VIP treatment as we skipped the que and which was over 50 meters long and had someone get our bags which took us to paradise villa rental luxury car.
We then went to experience our first villa in Seminyak at Annex villas. From the moment we entered the villa, I felt I knew why villas were the rage of Bali. Simple things such as instead of swimming at the hotel swimming pool, you now can enjoy your own private pool. Our villa featured a private tranquil tropical garden, our own kitchen & dining area (saved costs with snacks and meals), a luxury master bedroom with an en-suite open design bathroom. Paradise Villa Rental provided me with the perfect villa in meeting my needs in providing a stress free holiday while the temptation of shopping and spas on Jalan Oberoi only several minutes away. Very highly recommended for visitors to Bali to experience staying in a villa and may get you hitched.

Italian cuisine is the most popular dishes in the world. If you head down to Kuta come to Tobia’s Restaurant at Benesari where you can enjoy Italian dishes like mama used to cooked at home.
Tobia’s restaurant is located at Benesari Kuta, is easy to find from any direction. If you come from Padma St. Tobia’s is just in the left hand side on the way to Poppies 2. With green bamboo as a main colored is very eye catching from the street.
With a casual ambience in the middle of surfer paradise at Benesari, Tobia’s is open for lunch and dinner with TV sport channel and open bar. How cool is that? Also Tobia’s is fine dining with affordable price, if you haven’t yet eaten at Tobias restaurant you will be surprised with the great taste of the food, and if you already have, you will most certainly want to back again.
We began from Insalata Di Rucola, fresh rucola with parmesan flakes or Insalata Mista with tomatoes, carrot, and mixed salad was also amazing. Perhaps the secret of this dish is in the fact of Tobias obtain most of the ingredients from carefully selected from fresh local market.
Without any doubt my main course consisting of Spaghetti Al Tonno with fresh tuna, oil, and garlic. The taste of freshly caught tuna combined with home-made pasta and Italian herbs and extra virgin olive oil is seriously magnificent. The secret of the sauce certainly want me to eating there everyday. Also Scaloppini Di Manzo Ai Funghi is beef escalope with mushroom and white wine sauce served with vegetables and potatoes is one of the most favorite eateries who come to Tobia’s. Whilst I enjoy my food, I saw the waitress served Entrecote Al Pepe Nero, beef steak (sirloin) with black pepper and cream sauce served with vegetables and potatoes. Hmm….smells so good, I thought that I should order the same menu for the next my visit.
Ah, I nearly forgot to tell you that the oven pizza also magnificent to miss it, 4 Formaggi is the one of the favorite surfer who regularly come to Tobias. Cotto E Funghi is pizza with tomato, mozzarella cheese, mushroom and ham is melted in the mouth. Most of the surfer they come in the afternoon, whilst they enjoy their hotdog or hamburger there is big TV screen with sport programmed is perfect for them after all day surfing in the Kuta Beach.
After all my heavy food, I feel like something smooth and sweet, Chocolate Mousse is the perfect choice to complete my lunch with a cup of espresso.
Well, one you have lunch or dinner at Tobia’s is very difficult to go anywhere else. The great Italian dish with reasonable price is hard to find in Bali.
