Qunci Villas, Lombok, Indonesia

First off, I want to greet everyone a very Merry Christmas! I had some wonderful time with family last night. Speaking of family, isn’t that what Christmas is all about? This year, my whole family will be spending time all together at our place during the holidays. They will be coming from abroad, so I wouldn’t be doing some traveling during Christmas like I usually do. But that does not keep me from reminiscing about some of my wonderful Christmas Holiday trips.

Here is one from 2013 in Qunci Villas, Lombok. And if you’re ever looking for a place to spend your Christmas Holiday next year, I would highly recommend it. Here are some of my photos taken during our trip:

The beautiful open-air bathroom — it’s always nice to take a shower under the canopy of the trees or the stars at night.

Off to some island-hopping

The year 2013 was the first year of our return to the tropics, having lived in France for two years before that, so I had been thirsting to see the gorgeous tropical beaches that I have grown to be even more fond of during my stay in the temperate zone of Southern France. Lombok was the perfect place. It’s a quick plane ride from Singapore and it had this gorgeous French-owned resort called Qunci Villas.

It was my first time I spent Christmas outside of my country of residence. I found it very refreshing and very relaxing. Qunci Villas is a very relaxing place — a beautifully-designed resort with interesting art works scattered all over the villas and inside the guest rooms. It has two big swimming pools, both salt-chlorinated, which I prefer. There are two restaurants and a bar that we liked to frequent during sunset. The resort conveniently faces the beach and the sunset, with a view of the island of Bali in the not-so-distant horizon.

To complete your plans of rest and relaxation, they also have a spa. I tried the full body massage and the facial. I totally enjoyed both and highly recommend going to their spa.

Thanks for reading and again, have a very Merry Christmas! 🙂
