LIFE IS HARD – OUR BED IS SOFT

SERENDIPITY

It has been many long years since I craved luxury, if I ever did. My mother used to tell people I didn’t care about “that stuff” … even when I was young. I was surprised that she had noticed because it was true. I wanted things that were interesting and different, but luxury never entered into it.

When I decided to visit Bali, I knew I had to experience a private villa with a pool. As a luxury traveler, I try and search out the best luxury in the world. Kayumanis sets a gold standard when it comes to providing luxury villas. From 24 hour butler service, private pools, high tea, gourmet food, to the level of service they provide – it is all 100% luxury.
