Water on the Nusas:
Remoteness and adventure on a paradise island as this one has its uniqueness and new experiences.
That's why we love it here!! :)
Please note that the Nusas, (Lembogan, Penida), Gilis, etc...(as most of the Indonesian remote paradise's islands) lack of local supply of pure fresh water. The non-drinkable water supply of the islands comes mostly from wells, transported to resorts and re-filtered for perfect enjoyment.
While having your daily bathroom routine, you may notice the slightly saline level of the water.
We may not be used to it in our home towns, but this water has notorious therapeutic effects.
Being very commonly used on Spa resorts/Wellness all around Bali and Indonesia.
Enjoy it! :)

We love our Geckos!! :))
Blue, green, yellow, pink.... Teal to tawny from one minute to the next.... Stripes and spots and swirling scales... Eyeballs patterned like galaxies... We... love them!
Geckos are completely harmless and an important part of the biology, culture, and tradition of Indonesia.
Sadly the number of Geckos is quickly decreasing due to an absurd use for Chinese medicine.
Geckos are an important part of Indonesia's biodiversity.
If you are lucky enough to see one around your room... Don't forget to have your Gecko-Selfie with him/her!!
