After having a happening afternoon at Waterbom, it was all the fun and activities at Club Med Bali for the next three days. Basically, when you stay at any Club Med, you do not have to go out of the resort because the resort is like a self-sustaining village where everything is included in the amount that you have paid (which explains why it is not exactly cheap to stay there). Everything from food to gym classes to facilities, you name it, it is free, even alcoholic drinks!
Below are some of activities offered at Club Med Bali that we partook in. Do note that these were done over the course of three days.
I woke up early in the morning, around 5.30am when it was still dark outside, to catch the sunrise. However, the direction of the beach seems more suitable for sunsets, as I managed to see the sky brightening up but did not manage to catch the sun.
Along the long corridor which runs adjacent to all the blocks, is the golf course. At certain times of the day, there will be groups of people putting on the green. On the opposite side of the corridor, is a pond in front of the blocks, where you can see wildlife like the Great Egret and Water Monitors.
At breakfast, squirrels are more pest than friend. These daring/ annoying little buggers are very active in the morning and will try to scramble onto your table when you are not paying attention to steal your food. Of course, some of the children were fascinated by them and tried to feed them. If you are afraid of squirrels or would rather eat your breakfast in peace, I suggest you choose a table inside.
Tennis was one of the activities that we enjoyed and tried more than once as Charlotte, our instructor who is as fluent in french as she is skillful in tennis, is an awesome instructor. Sis and I are amateurs and she was patient with us and even in a medium-sized group setting, was still able to give us pointers individually.
Archery for beginners is in the morning. We arrived about five minutes early and managed to get a slot. Those who came on the dot or slightly late had to wait for us to be done before they could try their hand at it. I cannot say that I was a fair shot after the session, but it was pretty fun.
