Chapter 7 – Ametis Villa, Canggu

Dear travel diary,

Our last stop this trip was Ametis Villas in Changgu! You could say the villa was separated in three parta. One – the outdoor kitchen and livingroom area. Two – the pool, sun bed and garden area. And three – the inside bedroom and bathroom area. On top of this, you have your own “butler” as they call it, who only serves you and your villa. I’ll tell you more about it later :)

 

I just loved the kitchen! It was actually one of my favorites thing about this villa. I think it really nice to have access to a kitchen even when I’m on vacation, and outdoor kitchen? Well, I’m not sure if it could get any better… When you get crazy cravings for banana pancakes it definitely comes in handy! As I said, the butler service was  a very special experience! Our butler was Balinese with excellent english and he helped us with whatever we needed, whenever we needed it. This could be serving breakfast and dinner, taking us on tours around Bali, helping us renting surfboards, making sure that our minibar doesn’t run out of Coke Zero (I’m an addict ;))… You get the idea, you know, everything! And the cool thing with having your own go-to-guy, or with our butler in particular, is that you actually get more of an personal contact and have more rewarding conversations than you usually get staying at any hotel. We learned about his past and how life is growing up in Bali etc etc… Maybe sounds stiff to have a butler, but I must say it was the opposite!

 

 

This bathroom tho!! Look at this amazing view from our bathtub!?

 

The nearest beach from Ametis is Changgu Beach, just a 2 minutes walk from the villa. It’s a very attractive surfing spot and the beach, the bars and all the restaurants are full of free living nice australians who found their surfer paradise. The restaurants are much more “chill” than the ones we’ve been eating on rest of the trip. They’re much more suited for surfers and one of the restaurants even had plastic chairs just so you could eat lunch in your bathing suit :) You know!? On our very last day we watched the sunset before we headed back for a last visit at the spa, dinner, drinks and the latest episodes of Suits. Yeah, we watch that shit even here :)

 

Over all this villa and this trip has been so amazing! I want to give a special thanks to “Back in Bali” who helped us with all the bookings.

I love to see and stay at different places to get more out of my vacations but I have to say we might got a little over board with the all the traveling, changing hotels and beaches every other day. The hotels, the villas and the surfing has been amazing, but next time I feel like having more time on each place. You know, to be able to really get comfy in the hotel/villas, have time to do some day trips and see some more of the nature and culture of Bali! But I hope you guys enjoyed this travel diary! First time for me really giving you guys a glimps of really getting details about my traveling! Please leave a comment about what you’ve thought about these posts!

Next up for is Yacht week in Greece, new country, new hashtag!!!

Chapter 6 – Hu’u Villa, Seminyak

Dear travel diary,

Sixth spot we stayed at was Hu’u Villa in Seminyak. We got a beautiful villa in a complex where I felt the average guest age was slight younger than we’ve encountered on this trip. They serve breakfast until 17:00 just so you can party late and still catch the breakfast… :) Are you kind of getting where I’m going?

 

It was more of a modern type of villa with huge windows as you see on the pictures below. It suited me really good since this felt a little like the place we’re renovating for ourselves home in Sweden, except we don’t have a pool :(

Pool area was cool. We had a family in the villa next door which was making a lot of noise but other than that I really liked the area.

Waking up to this wasn’t too bad ;)

 

 

Hu’u Villa had their own bistro with a really good selection and quality of food. It wasn’t too high priced, not too low, but it was really good. The breakfast they made was amazing too. If you stay here, I recommend their restaurant. They also allow you to order from a couple of chosen restaurants nearby and get it for your as room service. This was also pretty cool, only downside was the presentation since it was “take away” packed and brought to your villa. But I like the idea!

 

 

It was a good place to catch up with some work. Took some cool photos and edited some of the photos taken on the trip so far.

 

 

Over all, this Villa is for everybody. It does though suit a younger guest since it has a few benefits like the breakfast thing. It’s also seems to be branded a bit in that direction just because of that particular service. I don’t know, might be just me. The staff was really nice and were very helpful with us trying to find the best location to surf. 10-15 minutes away from our beach was a really good spot for surfers that we unfortunately didn’t have the time to check out. But good to know if you’re into that :) I did really like the place tho and I see myself going back! Hope you guys got a little feeling of how it looked :) Xx

Win a festival-fashion makeover with Zoégas and me!

19:29 | 28 July, 2015

FannyLyckman_Zoega-festivalI’ve been to a lot of festivals and every time I spend extra time choosing what to wear! Its that time where you can go out of your comfort zone and dress a little over the top! Maybe you wanna be a hippie just for a day or maybe you all of a sudden feel like coloring your hair pink. Festivals is the time when this is appreciated and that’s why I love festival fashion.

I’m pro going a little bananas and this year you might even get rewarded for your craziness. At least if you come and hang with me at Way Out West! Because together with ZOÉGAs, I’ll be giving our free clothes and a fashion-make over to five lucky winners (one each new hour  amongst those who dares to wear their most distasteful (or fun/crazy!) outfit to the festival. After that I need a photograph with each winner for comparing, hopefully I changed your appearance for the better ;)

This is part of ZOÉGAs campaign to bring a more tasteful life to anyone behaving in a non-tasteful way. The worse you dress, the more likely you are to win! Got you some inspiration … ;)

The competition will be held at Way Out West Aug 14th from 13:00-18:00 (me attending) and Aug 15th from 14:00-19:00 (Angelica Blick attending) in ZOÉGAs Coffee Lounge. If you’re more Good Taste than Bad Taste you’re of course more than welcome to hit the tent to just hang out with me between the same hours and drink ZOÉGAs coffee :) Check out their film about getting a more tasteful life below!

 

Hope to see you there in good or bad outfits!!! Xx
