Continuing with our Lombok vacation we spent some a lot of our time relaxing. Our relaxing vacation included reading, sleeping, eating, and drinking!
Each evening there was a Happy Hour from 5-7 with buy one get one free special. We frequented this daily. Taylor’s drink of choice was a Singapore Sling and I often got a pineapple mojito. The drinks were made using super fresh fruit that was squeezed. They were tasty!
One night, there was a large beach BBQ for dinner. We had a nice table set up ocean side and had a lovely meal.
We spent time getting some spa services. The spa had so many offerings and things were inexpensive by my standards(60 min massages for $30.) I frequented the spa often and Taylor even enjoyed a treatment. I started with a manicure and pedicure, Taylor and I both got a Balinese messages, and then on the last day before we left I also got another Balinese message along with a body scrub. One day I got a massage on the beach for $10. It was not as good at the spa on the property but for $10 you couldn’t beat that price!
One morning I took a cooking class and learned how to prepare traditional Indonesian cuisine. It was exciting to learn with the chefs and get a sneak peak behind the scenes of the resort. I really enjoyed the class partially because was the only student plus it only cost $35, we got to eat all the food I cooked for lunch and I got an apron to keep! I prepared Nasi goreng Idgo, Sumatra Udang Balado, Sambai Banteng Ngangak, Beef Rendang, Peanut Sauce, Soto Lamongan, Sambai Laos, Sambai Tersai Bakar. Taylor took some surf lessons on the beach. It cost $20 for as long as he wanted to go. He was pretty impressive and got up on the first try!In Lombok, we bought a few souvenirs home with us. I bought beach wraps from the ladies selling on the beach. They carried the stack around on their heads, it was so cool. We also went in to the closest town for about an hour and bought some artistic pieces to bring back like a wall wood carving, a large wooden bowl, a statue, etc. There were a lot of cool pieces, but we need to be able to bring it back in our luggage! That about rounds our our Lombok vacation! Hope you enjoyed!
