‘Om Swas­ti­astu...’

It is hard to be­lieve that an­other year will soon pass. It feels as if it was only yes­ter­day that our jour­ney into 2015 be­gan, and now, in the blink of an eye, we’ll soon say good-bye to an­other year. For some peo­ple this is the time to con­tem­plate and ask ques­tions like, “Have I made my dreams come true?” or “Is this year bet­ter than the last one?” or “What should my res­o­lu­tions be for next year?”

Let’s put those ques­tions aside for a while, and re­mem­ber that you de­serve to close 2015 splen­didly, es­pe­cially if you’re spend­ing the end of the year on this is­land. South Bali is go­ing to be even more alive with a mas­sive num­ber of par­ties for sure, and that’s why we think it’s best for you stay in the heart of Kuta and Seminyak so you won’t miss any fun events due to traf­fic. Flip through ‘REST & RE­LAX­ATION’ to dis­cover the best four places to stay in Kuta and Seminyak, where nightlife is only a stroll away but seren­ity is still found within the ho­tel walls.

Don’t forget to spend an in­ti­mate Christ­mas and New Year’s Eve meal with your loved ones. Our ‘DINE & DE­LIGHTS’ points you to­wards the au­then­tic In­done­sian food at Republik 45, where you can have a hearty lunch or din­ner with fam­ily and friends, while ‘LIT­TLE LOVES’ re­veals places where you can have fab­u­lous af­ter­noon tea and in­dulge in a de­lec­ta­ble Christ­mas and New Year’s Eve din­ner in Bali.

On an­other note, 2015 also wit­nessed some en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues, like the for­est fires across In­done­sia and the ex­tinc­tion of many an­i­mal species due to hu­man greed. We sure hope that 2016 will bring changes in th­ese ar­eas, and that’s why we in­vite you to read ‘BE­YOND BALI’ where our con­trib­u­tor Paul V. Wal­ters shares about his river jour­ney in Bor­neo, just a couple of months be­fore the is­land was set on fire.

All in all, we hope you have fab­u­lous mem­o­ries of 2015 and a more won­der­ful jour­ney ahead next year. Merry Christ­mas and Happy New Year!
