As the winter starts to drag on it’s definitely the time to turn our attention to sunnier climates and paradise beaches; a remote spot with gorgeous views gets my imagination going and that’s exactly what you get with a stay at the Lexington Klapa Resort in Bali, Indonesia. Perfectly situated a few steps from the beautiful Dreamland Beach, next to the New Kuta Golf Course and set within the Pecatu Indah Resort complex. It is near many attractions including sacred Uluwatu Temple, iconic Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park, and exotic beaches like Padang-Padang from Julia Robert’s movie “Eat, Pray, Love” ; Bingin, Suluban, and Balangan Beach for you to catch some waves & the sun. Flights from London to Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport (also known as Denpasar Airport) take just over 17 hours with a connection. The route is served by several airlines, includes Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways, Emirates and Cathay Pacific. The resort is then just a 40-minute drive from the airport.
There is a contemporary, Mediterranean feel throughout the 5-star resort. The views are breath-taking from the cliff top vantage point and are especially magical at sunset. The interior design is sophisticated and classy with a subtle, earthy colour palate. Facilities include a Golf Terrace restaurant, a stunning rooftop swimming pool which is side to side with a rooftop bar facing Indian Ocean as view, and direct beach access to Dreamland Beach.
