We woke up and performed an early check out at our hotel. Made was picking us up for breakfast at blue point villas. After breakfast. we are going to visit blue point beach and uluwatu temple for the first half of the morning.

It was a 45mins drive from kuta to reach blue point villas. The resort entrance was beautiful, full of greenery and boast an infinity pool. We were ushered to the restaurant to have our breakfast.

As we were not hotel guests, we had only the ala-carte options to choose from. We opted for a nasi goreng, mee goreng and a sunny side up set. I had to myself a fresh mango juice to down the morning heat.

The fresh mango juice was totally refreshing. It was cold and had that unique fragrance of locally grown mango. Love it!

The food looked better than it taste. Both the fried noodles and fried rice were greasy and a tad too salty. The only saving grace were the double sunny side up and mash. It was not an enjoyable breakfast at all means, we finished what we could and looked forward to an amazing brunch @ Cut Catch Cucina at Sofitel Nusa Dua Bali. After breakfast, we explored the hotel premise.

This is the infinity pool at the villas. Wished I could jump right straight  in.

There is also a chapel within the hotel grounds. I was told that it was a popular venue for solemnisation due to its beautiful sea views.

Love the old rustic house which houses the hotel restaurant and an evening bar. We left shortly down a flight of stairs in search of the beautiful blue point beach.

On the way down, we could hear the musical of crashing waves and chirping birds. Midway through, I stopped to take a shot.

This was the spot I was searching for! After a 15 minutes walk down numerous flight of stairs, I was estatic finding this particular spot! After admiring the scenery for 15minutes, Made told us its time to go to uluwatu. Uluwatu temple is a 10 minutes drive south from blue point.

What makes uluwatu so special was that it is situated along a stretch of cliff that towers over the ocean. Crashing waves and strong winds are the norm here.

The temple is located at the far end, the top of the cliff. The waves were beautiful and endless.

After a trek of 20mins. We reached near the top of the cliff. Looking back, the view was breathtaking.

The inner grounds were out of bounds to visitors. There were minor renovation works going around the temple. We made our departure towards the carpark.

We encountered this village of devotees making their way to the temple for their prayers.

A family of devotees lags behind the main group as we nears the carpark entrance.

As incense fills the ground, we made our way to our car and departed for our next stop, Garuda Wisnu Kencana.
