Now This Is The Life: Koh Samui and Bali

After our busy days in Bangkok and chaotic whirl wind of a trip to India, we decided to head to the beach for some much needed R&R. We flew back to Bangkok from New Delhi and then from Bangkok we took a short flight to the Thai island of Koh Samui.

Getting off the plane on the island was such a nice relaxed pace compared to the previous weeks. We were so grateful for this downtime. We took a shuttle to The Renaissance Hotel. We had booked the cheapest room available online weeks before, but when we arrived we immediately got upgraded to a garden bungalow with a private pool. (We strongly recommend that anyone who plans on traveling, becomes a rewards member for hotels and airlines. It really has made a huge difference for our trip).

We spent three days lounging by the crystal clear water on Koh Samui.

Ready for some beach time!

There's always time for twirling in fun places!

From Koh Samui we hopped on a plane to Bali. We had a five hour layover in Singapore, but if you have to be stuck at an airport, Singapore is the place to be stuck. The airport in Singapore had free wifi, lounging areas galore, lots of dining options, indoor gardens, and even a swimming pool and movie theatre.

When we got to Bali we checked into the Conrad. The resort was absolutely amazing. It had the largest swimming pool either of us had ever seen, our room had an ocean view, the restaurants were delicious, and we had some of the best massages of our lives at the spa.

Believe it or not, traveling for eight months can be extremely exhausting, and a good solid beach vacation was absolutely revitalizing. We left Bali completely re energized and ready to take on our next big adventure…Australia/New Zealand!

  1. I’m so glad you remember how to twirl! I think I would have stayed in Bali. It looks so beautifu, I would twirl too! Love you two! Muah!

    • That’s a great question! We have had so many favorites. It’s hard to choose. We’ve actually been wanting to write a blog post about our top eats. If we get some free time and some good wifi, we’ll definitely try to get that done. But some of our faves have been Italy, Thailand, and India when it comes down to grub:)
