Since I don’t have idea what present i wanna give to my other half and my princess for their coming birthday, I planned this surprise birthday trip for them!. At first my husband didn’t know the destination until the flight attendance announced it in the plane before we took off. Anyway, It doesn’t matter. He looked very happy and look forward for the surprise.
This is just a relaxing holiday on the beach and pool. Here are the itinerary and cost for 4 days 3 nights.
First night we were staying at Senggigi beach and we moved to Gili Trawangan for the rest 2 days.
Surprise Birthday Card Invitation I gave to them 1 week before departure.
Day 1 – 3rd March 2018 | Saturday
Our departure flight time was 6:50am, so we leave the house around 4:00am by Grabcar to Klia2 terminal.
We arrived Lombok Praya International Airport around 10:02am. From here we transferred to our resort at Senggigi by private taxi. This was tricky part, you have to negotiate with them firmly. I went directly to the taxi counter and asked the rate and every counter gave a different rate. First counter offered me IDR285,000. Second counter gave between IDR300,000 – IDR250,000.
Then, I walked away and went to Damri Bus counter. The bus fare per person was IDR40,000. I can’t believe the price was so high. If I’m not mistaken, the bus fare is only IDR25,000. Then 1 taxi driver approached me and asked IDR250,000. I said no and negotiate the rate to IDR200,000 (MYR57.) and he said yes. I know the rate will not more than IDR200,000. So we proceed to his car after I bought a local simkad 2gb+2gb at IDR25,000 (MYR7) at the airport.
Halfway, the driver stop us at Restaurant for lunch without any extra cost. Since we were not hungry, we just ordered drink and some snacks. 1 coconut drink, 1 es teh and fried tempeh cost IDR60,500 (MYR17). Yeah, its expensive.
2:00pm: Checked in to the room. Our room has partial ocean view. Clean room and cozy. Swimming pool and beach just a minute walk.
3:00pm: We went for in-house spa at Champlung Spa.
4:30pm: Complimentary tea and snacks at the bar. My favorite snack was keledek goreng. I can’t help myself from not taking it many time.
5:30pm: We spent time swimming at the pool while watching the sunset. It was a great moment spending time with them. the pool water was so warm and nice.
7:00pm: We rest and took a nap.
9:00pm: Dinner with surprised cake at the end.
11:00pm: We walked at the beach for awhile before heading to our room. Sleep.
