Bali ~ Day 3 Tanah Lot ~Posted on Oct 03 in Bali, Tanah Lotby ShelynPrint
After the invigorating massage, we decided to get some light meals somewhere nearby. We stumbled across this cafe, The Porch Cafe, that caught our eyes of its cosy Balinese ambiance. For the first time we had non-Balinese food in Bali ^_^. The cook prepared the food in the open kitchen located outdoor. This is the type of my dream cafe that I always want to own one.
We found an entrance connected to a cottage in the backyard. Due to the curiosity, we took a glimpse of the cottage. It was a homestay cottage with the name of Flashbacks and The Porch Cafe belonged to Flashbacks.
I immediately fell in love with Flashback for its intimate tropical garden and swimming pool, and the cottage style of rooms. I always love cottage. We checked the price at the reception and found that the prices were quite reasonable ranged from Rp 160k – Rp215k for normal room and Rp410k – Rp 515k for suite and banglow. If you are looking for budgeted hotel, I highly recommend you to go for Flashbacks. It is located in the main street of Sanur and the room price is very cheap with its ambiance and facilities provided.
We wanted to switch to this hotel but all the rooms were fully booked for the following few weeks. Check out their website at http://www.flashbacks-chb.com/.
After the light meal, we started looking for taxi to Tanah Lot for sunset (yeah.. this morning was sunrise, and now sunset). While walking in the street, out of nowhere we found this beautiful passage in one of the back street.
Pura Tanah Lot, one of the most holy places in Bali, closely associated with several important temples along this coast, including Pura Rambut Siwi and Pura Luhur Uluwatu. Because of its sacred status, only bona fide devotees are allowed to climb the temple stairway carved out of the rock face and enter the compounds; everyone else is confined to the patch of grey sand around the base of the rock (which is under water at high tide)

Nothing much to do in Tanah Lot except admiring the view of Pura Tanah Lot and climbing up to cli
fftop. At about 7 p.m., there was an announcement about the high tide asking us to leave the place. Tanah Lot became lonesome again.
