Ballin’ Review #24 – Bloo Lagoon Village

November 15th, 2010 No comments
Thanks to my girlfriend I finally made my way over to the eastern side of Bali for a great mini-vacation weekend. About 1.5 hours drive from Sanur brought us to the Padangbai/Candidasa area and our final destination, Bloo Lagoon Village.

Bloo Lagoon bills themselves as a "sustainable tourism" complex with much of the village leaving almost no carbon footprint. Just walk through their grounds and you'll see just how much it is still a part of its natural surroundings. All the villas are unique in their own way and are VERY spacious with most having awesome views of Padangbai below (it's located on the side of a hill). If you're an outdoors-ish kinda person you'll love it, if you're more of a hotel-room introvert then the bugs will make you run back to Seminyak.

Was honestly just great to get away from south Bali and mingle with the hill people (Lothar anyone!?). Obviously the seafood everywhere is ridiculously fresh and in abundance. Also checked out Pantai Putih a lil past Candidasa for a great beach spot that i'm assuming not a lot of people know about. East Bali is pretty dope, cooler temps and less of a hassle, not to mention some great views across to the neighboring islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Lombongan, and Lombok.
