Chachara, Seminyak Bali

When you visit Bali, you don't expect to eat Spanish food and have it be the best damn Spanish meal you've ever had in your life. But that's exactly what happened when we visited Chachara in Seminyak. First of all, I just have to say, I am so impressed with all the effort gone into turning Chachara into the perfect little hidden chill out spot right in the heart of Seminyak. I love the interior and the way they have done up the place. We chose to sit outdoors, facing the cute

TIIGO, 24-Hour Restaurant In Seminyak

One of my favourite things about staying at Montigo Resort, Seminyak Bali, is that right on the property is TIIGO, a 24-hour food establishment. Yup, that’s right. 24 hours, 7 days a week, you get to enjoy the food here at TIIGO. And we experienced odd hour dining on two separate occasions here. Once was having breakfast at 6AM before going off for our dives. The second experience was a dinner set menu at 9PM. This was one of my best meals in Bali and most certainly the best

TIIGO, Seminyak

Our first meal upon arriving in the nicer part of Seminyak was at Montigo Resort’s TIIGO. Here is where outsiders are welcome to dine at the restaurant or enjoy the pool. (The resort also has 2 other private pools for guests only.) We loved the tropical vibes of the place and couldn’t wait to taste some of the best local fare TIIGO had to offer. Once you sit down, you’re offered bread with herbed butter and a tomato salsa. I ordered a watermelon juice to start the meal with.

Fishbone Local, Canggu Bali

When we went to Bali recently, we decided to go to different districts of the island. One of the districts that we stumbled across was Canggu. That is where we found this treasure - Fishbone Local. Fishbone Local might seem like a pretty hectic bar from the outside, with crowds seated at tables around the vicinity and loud music playing. But once you step in, you'll see that it's actually quite an oasis. A paradise amidst all the partying in Bali. They've got this amazing gra

Hujan Locale, Ubud Bali

We rented a car in Bali so we could drive to Ubud and enjoy the day there. This turned out to be quite the adventure. After the one hour journey to Ubud, we found ourselves in a bustling, busy area and it was a challenge to find parking. But once we found parking, we enjoyed the cool breeze as we walked to the heart of Ubud, where the art market is. That’s where we found Hujan Locale, a sanctuary tucked away in one of the side streets. Downstairs, an old world vintage charm w

Montigo Resorts Seminyak Spa

When you imagine getting a massage at a resort or hotel, you don’t expect a treatment with such authenticity of Montigo Resorts, Seminyak’s Spa. Firstly, keeping to its Balinese roots, the spa has put its focus on Balinese elements in its interior as well as traditional Balinese treatments. What I like about the spa is that they make their own oils for treatment, which means they know exactly what is going into the products used on your skin. You can ask the knowledgeable sta

Montigo Resorts Seminyak, Bali

It’s been a very long time since my last visit to Bali - about 12 years to be exact. And my last memory of it was Kuta Beach, quiet and peaceful after the unfortunate Bali bombing in 2005. Coming back to Bali again after so long was like visiting the place for the very first time. I didn’t know what to expect. Especially since this time, we would be staying in Seminyak, rather than Kuta. We were graciously hosted by Montigo Resorts Seminyak during our stay in Bali and man, wh

Christmas and New Year's Eve at Montigo Resorts

It's the happiest time of the year, especially for us at foodievstheworld because we absolutely love Christmas food! Christmas set menus showcase an establishment's ability to combine tradition and modernity. That's exactly what Montigo Resorts Nongsa and Seminyak are able to do.
