:: Attending best friend's wedding in Bali : Review of the first hotel where I spent 2 nights in Bali before & after the wedding event ::
The very first Hotel I stayed in Bali. Hotel Le Grande is nestled in the centre of New Kuta Golf Course in Pecatu - located at the south western coast of Bali. About 15.5km away from the Denpasar Airport - 30mins driving distance.
We (me & 2 couples whose wife is my classmate) were pick-up by the hotel transport from Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar. The sky has completely dark when we arrive Bali. On our way to the hotel, all I could see is just trees and bushes along the roadside, undeveloped area, dark and secluded surrounding. Nice hotel & resorts that comes with beautiful nature view are often located far away from modern area.
The hotel stay was arranged by my bestie who is the bride. All her family members, relatives & friends, in laws family including herself and her husband were staying in the same hotel as well. I shared room with two of her bridesmaids since husband did not join me in this trip.
The cozy modern room has a see-through glass panel bathroom where you can close the curtain if you need privacy. Happy to see there's a separated shower area from Bathtub & WC.
The next day morning when the sun is bright and shine. The room's balcony has a very cozy sitting corner with swimming pool view (and next block view too). But the weather is too hot for me to enjoy outdoor sitting to be honest.
The property is huge, there are quite a numbers of blocks and staircase linked here and there and we actually spent some time to find our way back to our room after breakfast lol.
The Grand Cafe where we had breakfast during our stay. Friendly staffs with good service. Food taste great too - serving not only local Balinese cuisine but also western cuisine.
Those huts in the middle of the pond are spa & massage centre. Too bad we do not have time to enjoy the facilities. The night we arrived, we joined the dinner buffet by the pool and have a small gathering till late night. Next day is the wedding day which is a whole-day event out from Hotel Le Grande. Then the morning after the wedding, we check-out early morning & begin our sightseeing in Bali.
