We were puzzled when we saw a spike for Dreadlock and Lady Cut bookings in early April until our clients told us that this is The Bali Spirit Festival week. Sounds like an awesome event and they support so many incredible and needed causes! The goal of the BaliSpirit Festival is to awaken and nourish each individual’s potential for positive change within, leading to positive change in our homes, in our communities, and around the world. Through beneficial and inspirational traditions of Yoga, Dance, and Music, the BaliSpirit Festival illustrates the Balinese Hindu concept of Tri Hita Karana: living in harmony with our spiritual, social, and natural environments. Committed, particularly, to nourishing our own home in Bali, the founders of the BaliSpirit Festival pledge to provide financial, logistical, and organizational support to local charities, with a special emphasis on children’s programs, multicultural education and performance, healthcare, HIV& AIDS awareness, and environmental conservation in Bali and greater Indonesia.

It was great that President Obama chose Bali and Indonesia as one of his first vacation spots after his presidency. As always, he carried himself as a gentlemen and very much welcomed back to Indonesia where he grew up. It was great to get "Obama Sightings" during their visit to Bali but it mist be incredibly hard to be followed by the press like that.

We have a lot of incredible athletes visit Bali but one of the nicest and down to Earth ones was Simeon Panda. Just chillin' on our old bench waiting his turn and it turns out he's one of Forbes Top Ten influencers in Fitness and has a Social Media following in excess of 8M! We had no idea who he was and only figured it out after our Instagram shot up 1,000 followers overnight. Thanks so much for that and more about Simeon here
Everybody's a VIP that walks through our doors but it's always a nice surprise to see who pops in for an evening haircut. Thanks for stopping in @stefannwilliam an Indonesian actor known for many movies including
Naughty Nuris - Seminyak: Killer Ribs and The Best Martini's - Go here for lunch too! The Best!
The Smoke House - Seminyak: These guys are the real deal Americans with a passion for meat! This is my local go to if I've got a big group of hungry visitors. Their bar in a container setup is a must see as well.
Echo Beach House Canggu: This place is incredible especially if you like grilled seafood by the sea
Brazilian Aussy BBQ Seminyak & Kuta - This is the go to for an inexpensive feeding friendly. They've even got buggys to pick you up and haul you back to your hotel
Pica Tapas Nusa Dua - This is most definitely the best place for meat lovers with a bit of live entertainment as well. In the middle of Bali Collection Mall and a quick walk to The Grand Hyatt & Westin
WA HA HA Pork Ribs Seminyak - Feast on delicious pork ribs surrounded by friendly staff
La Plancha - Legian Known for its bright umbrellas by the sea, I've noticed theyve recently upped their BBQ game with a lot of sunset perfect kebabs, etc. Wash it all down with a bucket of Bintangs
Mr. Bob Nusa Dua - It's hard to find casual in Nusa Dua but Mr Bob pulls it off perfectly and a great place for an easy meal - try the ribs
Hog Wild Batu Belig - Don't confuse this place with Naughty Nuri's (it's not) - It's popular with Chinese Tourists and when I have friends in from China, it's a good place to take them. Exit through the gift shop...location is good and plenty of parking in the rear
Can't deal with tiny lil hotel fridges that never keep your beers cold! I hate it too! Rent an Esky cooler while you're in Bali and have these guys keep it topped up for you during the duration of your stay!
