Editor’s Pick: Old Man’s in Canggu

in Dining by

As frequent visitors to Canggu, we just love Old Man’s. After-surf drinks, sunset gigs, traditional beer garden bites and chill-out vibes all just few steps away from the shimmering black sands of Batu Bolong beach- what else could we ask.

Gaze at the stars from the plush sofas enjoying a glass of wine or sip margaritas by the bar mingling with fellow travellers and local expat crowd. With Dirty Ol’ Wednesdays and Salty Sundays the place turns into a huge beach party with beer pong, island’s best beats and attractive promos on beers, wines and margaritas promising a night you won’t forget.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Old Man’s serves meals excellent for sharing. Grilled seafood platter and hand cut fries or traditional beer-battered fish and chips are amongst favourites. For the health conscious- fresh salads is the way to go.

Old Man’s have not forgotten the little ones as well. It’s a one-stop beach, play, eat adventure for kids and there are always other little people to muck around with. The menu is crammed with kid’s favourites like pancakes, fish and chips, pasta, fresh juices and, of course, milkshakes. There’s lots of space to run around, a box of wooden toys to play with and comfy cushions to lounge on or have a nap. Too much energy to nap? Head down for some fun in the sand or rent a colorful long board and test your skills.

Aussie artist Lucas Grogan added funky vibes to Old Man’s with his signature blue murals, which act as a magnet for curious kids and art savvy adults.

Stay updated on Old Man’s events via their Facebook page. There’s plenty going on including monthly Saturday markets full of awesome vintage goodies and organic produce.

Pastry Classes at Monsieur Spoon

in Families by

If you are visiting Bali with kids and looking for unique things to do, go into any of the three branches of Monsieur Spoon and you are bound to see children staring at the pastries, biscuits and macaroons, their faces etched with wonder and delight. It’s not just the anticipation of something sweet, it’s the way the food looks, smells and is displayed and how it encourages their curiosity: “How do you make croissants?” “How do you colour macaroons?”. Book a pastry class with Greg and Rafi and your kids can find it out for themselves.

Pastry Classes and Garden Parties

It’s this curiosity that Monsieur Spoon co-founder Greg recognised in his own children and the children that come into his bakeries, and that led to the launch of baking classes at Monsieur Spoon.

“I want kids to come into the kitchen, meet the bakers, touch the dough and see the caramel being made. I want them to understand that baking and cooking are an art and that they can all be artists” says Greg.

Classes are scheduled every last weekend of the month.

For more information e-mail: office@monsieurspoon.com

Monsieur Spoon also hosts entertaining garden parties.

About Monsieur Spoon

Monsieur Spoon was founded in 2012 when Rafi Papazian and Gregory Guerguerian decided to leave Paris and set up on the Island of The Gods. Bali might seem as a strange place to be creating French pastries, but Rafi and Greg say that it was the creativity and passion they found in Bali that charmed them to stay and share their dream with the locals. Visit Monsieur Spoon at any of these locations:

Monsieur Spoon Umalas, Jln Umalas 2, n°43 Kerobokan, Bali.

Monsieur Spoon Canggu, Jln Pantai Batu Bolong, Canggu, Bali.

Monsieur Spoon Oberoi, Jalan Kayu Cendana no. 2 Oberoi (next to Seminyak Square).

Cruising Bali in a VW Kombi

in Recreation by

Have you ever dreamt about exploring the tropical island of Bali in your own unique way? Thanks to Brett and his team at Bali VW Limo, you can turn back the clock and channel your inner hippy for a nostalgic cruise in a classic VW Kombi Limo.

What started off as office banter about building a fun vehicle that would have a boom box, WiFi, slide-out kitchen and customised mini bar, turned into a huge project that finally came to fruition last year.

In May 2013 Brett found a VW Kombi for sale roadside in Denpasar. After re-registration, the Kombi was given a major revamp. The paint job was designed by Brett’s daughter Nisa and made real by Bali’s most famous airbrush artist. Ten months on, the Kombi was ready to hit the road. Now there are 4 of them cruising the island’s picturesque roads with 5 more on the production line.

All the vehicles are equipped with WiFi, air-conditioning, excellent sound system and remote-controlled minibar. Each VW Kombi Limousine comfortably seats five adults and comes with an experienced driver, English-speaking concierge, and cold water and towels on pick up.

Brett and his team can tailor a full day of activities for you whether it’s a trip with your friends or family to Bali’s arts center Ubud or down to Kuta’s party strip. Just send them an email and they’ll help map out an exciting, yet comfortable itinerary for you: info@vwlimobali.com

When’s the best time to be in Bali?

in Tips by
Villa Bayu Gita Beach Front

Bali is a tropical Indonesian island located just below the equator. Although the island boasts great weather all year round, it does have its seasons, so here are our suggestions for the best times to be in Bali:

May to October

May through to October is Bali’s dry season. July and August are Bali’s busiest months as they reflect the summer holidays in Europe and USA, so there is a lot of family travel at this period. You can expect much higher prices, less availability on your preferred accommodation and bigger crowds. However, the biggest advantage is that the weather is guaranteed to be great.

October to March

October through to March is considered the wet season in Bali. Yes, rain showers are more frequent than in the dry season, however it should not worry you too much — they always pass quickly. It’s a lot quieter during these months, which means accommodation rates are at their most affordable and the island is more tranquil (with the exceptions of Christmas, New Years and Easter holidays). Book your villas way in advance for these special occasions.

March, April and September

March, April and September are excellent months to come to Bali despite their ‘low season’ label. The weather is still great (expect the occasional shower), prices are low and there’s more accommodation availability.

Looking for a private luxury villa in Bali for your vacation? Here’s our hand-picked selection.
