The VIP Treatment
organized by the Sungai Gold, started from my landing in Bali. Very quickly, I found myself sitting in a mini van just for me towards the villa.
We are blocked by congestion in Kuta that I will meticulously avoid throughout my stay! For my first time in the island of gods, I wanted a meeting with an intimate authentic Bali.
It’s dark but I can see decorations on the side of the road. My driver told me that the island has recently celebrated an important Hindu celebration. I’m lucky to see these decorations which will be removed soon.
Now we drive on a narrow road lined with paddy fields.
First we cross a sleepy village and another one equally quiet. Then the van bypasses a temple and stops. We arrived at Villa Sungai and Sungai Gold, two luxury villa rentals (picture 8: the input to the two properties).
After a warm welcome, I go down a flight of stairs lined with lush vegetation and lit by torches leading to the Sungai Gold villa. Instant effect: the unreal feeling of being somewhere else, like teleported into a magical setting!
Nothing compared to my surprise when I discovered the villa lighted by candle lamps around the pool. A chic and intimate villa! I entrust to Made, the manager who came up to me that the villa is even more beautiful in real life than in pictures (picture 2: the entrance of the villa).

Photos above: the wide Balinese bed became our headquarters, for my laptop and me (lol). Every detail is chosen with taste: beautiful traditional Balinese roof made of dried herbs. Unfortunately it is no longer used in current constructions.
Photo above: the very nice outdoor dining area, where I’ve never eaten! I prefer staying by the pool.
The omnipresence of trees. The Black and white checkerboard fabric represents the colors of Bali. Surround a tree of this fabric allows to symbolically express one’s attachment to the tree and nature.
Photo taken from my favorite angle. The glass door opens onto one of the two bedrooms (the one where I slept. You can see more in a coming up post).
Last picture: the life of the villa. The big difference of the Sungai Gold is the incredible kindness and efficiency of its smiling staff.
