Ballin’ Review #23 – Kayumanis Nusa Dua

February 18th, 2010 No comments
Think... fortress compound + cinnamon scent + unheralded service =

.... Kayumanis. With four locations in Bali (Sanur, Nusa Dua, Ubud, Jimbaran), they have consistently built their reputation on 3 principles; spacious grounds, utmost privacy, and personalized service. Starting with their Ubud location in 2002, Kayumanis just kept getting better and never really looked back. Winning multiple awards from Conde Nast Traveller and CNBC Asia Pacific, it really does feel like almost no one is around you.

Was lucky enough to score a few nights at their Nusa Dua location which turned out to be a great experience. Having stayed in many places in Bali, i can understand enough what seperates the good from the mediocre. Besides having your own personal butler there are plenty of other amenitities such as modern kitchen, huge pool, and free mini-bar (woohoo!). Kayumanis means cinnamon in Indonesian and EVERYTHING smelled like it, right down to the soap.

Also took a bike around Nusa Dua, have completely forgotten the "quiet" side of Bali. Gotta get outta Seminyak/Kuta more often!

Woe Is Them.

Arsenal really jammed themselves up after last night's sloppy play and even more horrible goalkeeping abilities. Cesc Fabregas summed it up, the two Porto scores were "schoolboy's goals" after keeper Fabianski's inexperience and timidness shined through.

Arsene Wenger might be a genius but he should really watch his words lately, Porto physically bullied Arsenal for most of the game and Arsenal just couldn't get it done. And although the refereeing was pretty abysmal it's still no excuse for them to not tighten up their game. If Arsenal don't advance after the next leg at home against Porto in the Champions League, i think it's safe to say bye bye to hero Fabregas.

In one of the most daring and ludicrous thoughts ever, someone booked Horse Meat Disco from London to play at DeJa'Vu Club in Bali. Considering the amount of respect I have for Jim Stanton he brought along James Hilliard and ripped the roof off (albeit for 1.5 hours) with some of the dopest early leftfield disco jams.

Extremely funny scene watchin half of the crowd standing around without their BOOM BOOM beats and the rest of the crowd in a series of dancing, yelling, and drinking the night away scenes. Serious serious fun for an unexpected night. More please...
