Thetraveljunkie.org – I absolutely love island hopping, it’s the perfect time of year to travel and get to rediscover places. Pearl of Trawangan has always been the perfect traveling companion, I have been lucky enough to travel with the resort and see amazing places and have experienced great things. Today I wanted to share a video which I made for Pearl of Trawangan in Gili Island, Lombok. I visited the Pearl of Trawangan and totally transports you to a summery atmosphere which makes you dream about palm trees, sun, the beach and blue sea. And now the question is, where shall we go next? Jakarta, Amsterdam and Paris.
Thetraveljunkie.org – When I stayed in Primebiz Kuta Bali, I attended the Devdan show in Bali Nusa Dua Theatre, a five-star BTDC area. The show begins with two bored young travel junkies, who find a hidden treasure box in their trip. They begin their magical journey as they pick up a few traditional items from different regions. During the show, the 38 performers present dances from some parts of Indonesia, including Bali, Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan and Papua. The educative extravaganza shows countless stage effects such as torrential rain pours, flame bursts as well as different types of aerial ballet.
Thetraveljunkie.org – We are delighted to be able to rediscover on this classic adventure in Gili Trawangan; walking and snorkeling around, taking photos and making new memories. And, we are back in Bali although not for long. From the moment you step off the boat you become part of a colourful landscape. Getting lost around the ocean, under the sun and taking in all the different colours should be a must-see for all travel junkies.
Thetraveljunkie.org – The best way to start a new day here in Gili Trawangan is having a great sunrise in Pearl of Trawangan. It was almost 5am, best timing to shoot: I spent a morning around Pearl Beach Lounge and I really enjoyed myself and I took so many great photos. Hope you like them as much as I do! Enjoy the night, but remember that sunrise is better, the colours were beautiful, and the textures, shadows and shapes were just stunning. Everyday I fall in love more and more with Gili Trawangan.
Thetraveljunkie.org – The other night I took a shower and went out for dinner in our Gili Trawangan, Pearl of Trawangan. There are so many places where you can have a dinner or lunch, they have a great interiors and delicious food (even many of them are vegan and gluten free!). So we decided to have dinner at Trawangan Beach Lounge where I ordered spaghetti with tomato sauce and meatballs and mango granita. Yum!
Thetraveljunkie.org – Today I wanted to show you the photos that I took in Gili Trawangan when I worked on the Pearl of Trawangan shoot. I cannot wait to see the end result! I took advantage of some spare time to walk around the island, eat a pad Thai rice noodles (yes, pad Thai rice noodles in Gili Trawangan) and drink a mango juice at Pearl Beach Lounge, a lounge which makes the most delicious pad Thai rice noodles!
Thetraveljunkie.org – If there’s something you must visit when coming to Gili Trawangan, that’s Pearl Beach Lounge. It’s the exotic center of the island – a trip to all senses.
It’s perfect to get lost around the best foods and drinks in island, where we had breakfast, or around one of the dozens of restaurants or bars there are – full of unique pieces that you will die for- like Nasi Goreng with chicken (Indonesian style fried rice, vegetables and chicken), watermelon juice and Balinese black coffee.
Thetraveljunkie.org – One of the most enjoyable things in Gili Trawangan was the sun setting. Every day we watched it from a different spot taking pictures and seeking the best light of the whole island. This snaps were at Gili sunset beach and the Gili Trawangan hill, a hill to the west and one of our favs. Truth is, my holidays was totally improvised and last minute I realized I was missing a very important piece: swimsuit!
Thetraveljunkie.org – You may already had a peek at some of my favorite moments of my recent Gili Trawangan trip. Now it is time to share details of my hotel stay at Pearl of Trawangan.
