Beautiful Bulgari Bali

I flew to Bali last week to run a strategy workshop for the founders and Board of one of our new international clients. I decided to stay over for the weekend and Attilio Marro who runs Bulgari's hotel group recommended I stay at the Bulgari in Uluwatu.

What an experience.

Antonio Citterio designed and built it in 2006. An astonishing masterpiece of around 50 individual villas on a towering cliff top over golden beaches and crashing surf.

One of the best spas in the world, an infinity pool 150 meters above the Indian Ocean, the superb Il Ristorante for Maurizio's pastas, a tranquil outdoor bar and the beautifully understated La Spiaggia.... two wooden tables, a barbecue and the freshest fish under the cliff in the middle of friendly neighbors.... a bunch of playful monkeys.

GM Santiago Sagaz runs a team of friendly smiling Balinese who made the road a much friendlier place yesterday... and Carlos de la Barra makes the wine list sing. (It's part of The Ritz-Carlton portfolio so the customer experience is second to none).

A great place to chill, work on your latest idea, write, regroup... or get married.

Living Life Slow!
