Our tiny villa
5.10 am.... we were awakened by the crows of a cock. Cock!? I sat up in bed, throwing the bedcovers aside and walking barefooted, when I unlatched my room door.... was welcomed by this sight.
The farmers waved to me and greeted me good morning. Amazing! We were sleeping in the middle of padi fields! Well..., not really. Our boutique hotel was located next to padi fields.
Pretty cool, isn't it? Uniquely set amid padi fields, it offers tranquility and relaxation with a distinctive and authentic local Balinese touch. Quite an experience for city folks like us.
The damned cocks that woke us up at 5am!
We can sit or lay down at this pavilion and watched the farmers work in their padi field. The exotic hotel is surrounded by tropical garden with panorama view of rice fields.
Planting rice is never fun,
Bent from morn till set of sun.
Cannot stand and cannot sit,
Cannot rest a little bit.
Remembering the nursery rhyme from my kindergarten days, I was raring to go join the farmer working in his field but we have a full day ahead. Instead we chose to eat our breakfast at the dining area located on the second floor of the main building and watched the farmers as they plant their padi.
