THE VILLA
Jabunami Villa is a huge four bedroom Villa situated on the edge of Canggu, which in my opinion is one of the best areas to stay in Bali. It’s got a thriving community vibe, an abundance of rice paddies, easy access to the beach and great food nearby. The Villa itself is huge and perfect for families or groups of friends that are wanting to come to Bali. The living room features large sliding french doors, allowing for really open outdoor/indoor living.

There is a beautiful Pool located in the centre of the Villa, giving the place a nice feng shui flow. Some inflatable Pool toys, including one of those lux swans, made lounging here during the day a relaxing but fun experience.

Next to the pool there’s also a outdoor Gazebo, perfect for a lazy afternoon nap, or a refreshing meditation session.
The pool and outdoor area borders on a traditional Rice Paddy, offering a beautiful backdrop to this already stunning villa.

OUR ROOM

Naturally with a four bedroom Villa all to ourselves, we chose the Master bedroom, which is situated in a detached building to the second bedroom and living and dining areas. This makes for extra privacy and gives you your own little bedroom oasis with high ceilings, a beautiful white linen master bed complete with large bedframe surrounded by one of the best mosquito nets we’ve ever experienced, when it comes to look and practicality. The bedroom also comes with it’s own huge master bathroom, which won’t disappoint. There are two separate stone sinks on either side, a waterfall head shower and a massive bathtub situated in a rainforest like backdrop with a half open roof.

FOOD

Jabunami Villas provides breakfast every day of your choosing from a range of traditional breakfast dishes, such as Nasi Goreng to western continental style breakfast, fresh fruits, smoothies, baked goods. It’s safe to say we were well feed and looked after our entire stay. The Villa’s staff were also available to to cook other meals if you wish and they have an extensive seafood grill menu, Indonesian menu and BBQ menu available to guests. While we didn’t use this service, we feel safe to say anything the staff prepare would be delicious judging from our breakfast meals ever morning!

SERVICE

Impeccable. If there’s one thing this Villa has that really sets it apart, it’s the staff, they’re attentive, onto it and caring. Jabunami Villa’s manager Made was such a pleasure to meet and made sure our every desire was met, from coconuts to cocktails and even chicken soup when I sadly got Bali Belly from some Mexican food elsewhere!

WIFI

For Bali Wifi (which is never 100% reliable in speed or connectivity) Jabunami Villa’s Wifi was more than okay and made emails, uploads and watching YouTube a breeze!

We highly recommend this accommodation option for your stay in Bali.

Es Vedra, Ibiza. The 3rd most magnetic spot on Earth.

While you’re here in Ibiza, chances are that comes to mind are some of the best night clubs in the world. And yes, while Amnesia and Pacha are a must see on the island, there is much more than just partying to experience on this mysterious island.
My 2015 trip to Ibiza with Together Week (which you can read all about here) was a trip I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. While there are without a doubt some shady not so clear memories of nights out, there was one trip in particular while in Ibiza that is vividly clear in my memory, my visit to see the mysterious Es Vedra. Es Vedra is a uninhabited limestone rock island soaring 400metres above sea level and situated  2-3km off the western coast line of Ibiza. It can be viewed perfectly from a cliff along the Ibiza coast line. Describing Es Vedra is hard to put into words, it’s a place of natural beauty, intense power and magic that needs to be experienced to be understood.

Es Vedra isn’t exactly easy to get to, with a hire car needed and someone that knows the area or is good at finding their way through winding dirt roads, but the trip is well worth it. I personally was left speechless when Es Vedra first appeared in my eyesight as there’s an immense beauty this hauntingly beautiful rock that needs to be seen to be believed.
Before visiting Es Vedra I knew little about it, other than that it is said be be the third most magnetic spot on the planet after the north pole and mysteries Bermuda Triangle. It’s magnetic field is so powerful that compasses lose their ability to get a clear reading and navigational instruments are useless in the area surrounding the island. Since experiencing the islands power myself, I’ve done a little more research and I’m not the only one that feels there’s more to this magnetic rock than meets the eye. Es Vedra has been the centre of myths, legends and stories for years. Many generations seem to agree that there’s more than meets the eye!

  • UFO sightings and a secret UFO base.

There have been countless UFO sightings around the area of Es Vedra not only in the sky but below the sea. With many ibiza locals believing there is an under water UFO base after sightings of Unidentified Swimming Objects and circular lights beneath the sea that have deterred local boats and fisherman from exploring the surrounding area. At night Es Vedra is said to be a great UFO spotting location, with much activity and clear skies.

  • Healing and Inspiration

The magnetic energy and general vibe of Es Vedra is said to act as a natural place of healing and place of inspiration. Meditating on the coast line of Ibiza with Es Vedra in view is said to be a powerful experience and many locals often make the trip to Es Vedra to meditate and to undertake other spiritual activities.

  • Atlantis

Perhaps one of the coolest legends surrounding Es Vedra is that found directly opposite to Es Vedra on the Island of Ibiza is the ‘natural cave of Atlantis’, suspected as the tip of the long lost city. If you’re curious to find it there’s agruelling unmarked treck. The location of the cave is an Ibiza local secret and isn’t easy to found without a local guide. If you’re lucky enough to find the cave you’ll be rewarded with incredible art works drawn by local artists and a tranquil swimming hole.

  • Sea Nyphms and home of the Phoenician goddess, Tanit.

Es Vedra’s mystical stories go way back 1000’s of years with stories of sea Nyphms and mermaids calling the rock island home.  Es Vedra is also known to be the sacred home and birth place of of Tanit, who is known as the goddess and protector of woman and is well documented in the Ibizan history books.

Our Room
We were treated to a top floor corner suite, with an incredible view of Melbourne city scape, park lands & various sports arenas. The bed was very comfortable, the room layout interesting & the bathroom was huge. The decor had this old-school meets new-school, classic yet suave vibe to it, lots of wood print finish.
Food
Upon arrival we were greeted by a gorgeous tasting platter in our room, which included strawberries, little chocolate treats & macaroons. There is also a mouth watering breakfast buffet that starts at 6.30am. It had everything one could want for a quick up and go meal to start the day.
The Hotel is also located just a short stroll from the city center where there are ample food options available.
Service
The hotel staff were absolutely lovely, well spoken, helpful & friendly. We felt very welcome by all, be it the porter, receptionist or room service staff. Good vibes all round.
Wifi
The wifi worked great, we downloaded a movie in about 15minutes for a night in, so no complaints at all.
Cost was around $10 per day with no mention of a data cap.
