We woke up at about 8am and Jovan was very excited about the pool and couldn’t wait to jump into the pool! I promised to let him swim after breakfast..
The private pool!
The service staff delivered our breakfast buffet to our villa at about 8.30am as requested.. we had chosen 4 sets of breakfast the previous night and we’ve decided to have our breakfast in our villa instead of going to the restaurant..
The breakfast spread!
Of course we couldn’t finish all the food! It was really too much!
As the kids were so excited to swim in the pool, we decided to skip the shuttle bus to the shopping centre which was scheduled to move off at 10am..
The shuttle service only brings us to 3 different places at designated times.. if we choose to go to somewhere else, we would need to pay 150 000rp for each trip..
The kids finally had their first dip in the alluring pool!
Yeah! We love the pool!
We had a hard time trying to convince them that we would let them play in the pool after our trip to the beach.. Finally, they relented and played for a while in the bathtub before we got ready to catch the 11.30am bus to Nusa Dua beach.. The bus was late so we only left around 12pm.. the pick up time was hence pushed back to 4pm instead of 3.30pm..
The beach was not crowded and we managed to find a shady spot for the kids to play with the sand while we enjoyed the beautiful weather..
Having fun with the sand!
After a while, we decided to venture a little further to get some gear for the kids to play with sand.. we have some at home but didn’t bring cos we wanted to travel light…
After some walking, we decided to have our lunch at the Garden Cafe in Grand Hyatt Bali..
Colouring while waiting for our food..
We love spaghetti!
After our lunch, we went to one of the shops in the hotel to get 2 floats and a set of sand-playing gear.. then we headed to the beach again to let the kids play for a while more…
Playing with sand is fun!
We let them play till about 4pm when the hotel shuttle bus arrived.. the kids were reluctant to go but we reminded them that there’s a pool back in our villa so they were rather cooperative..
We then stopped by a mart to buy some cup noodles for dinner as we knew that the kids would be too tired to leave the villa for dinner..
Right after we got back, the kids wanted to swim so we granted their wish..
Let's try our new floats!
We had a great time in the pool! After that, the kids again spent some time in the bathtub before they were ready for dinner.. Princess actually fell asleep while drinking her milk so she didn’t take any solid food for dinner..
We found that there was a weird smell in the kids’ room and informed the service staff.. as we were having our dinner, 2 service staff came and checked the room to find the source of the smell but to no avail.. we finally decided to move to another villa which was just beside ours..
The following pictures show the slight differences between the 2 villas..
The kids' room in B7..
We didn’t mind the change since we didn’t pack a lot of stuff for this trip so the transfer was rather smooth..
At last, the kids can sleep in a room without a stench.. really thankful to the service staff for their prompt action!
