The sunsets from the west coast are pretty spectacular at the moment, so what could be better than enjoying a cold beer or a cocktail or two on the beachfront at the end of an active day?

Senja Lounge and Dining at the Sheraton Senggigi Beach Resort is one of our favourite beachfront venues and, although it’s a Sheraton, it doesn’t have to be expensive!

Taking off down the freeway, he gunned it to 180kph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

“Amazing!” he thought as he flew down the M4, enjoying pushing the pedal to the metal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

ELEGANT ITALIAN DINING AT QUNCI

It’s a Thursday night and Quah Restaurant at Qunci Villas is buzzing. We slip into the last empty table – even the beachfront tables are full – and feel lucky that we have a reservation.
