Manisan Restaurant at Alaya Resort Ubud

Manisan, set at the beautiful Alaya Resort Ubud, is the perfect spot to delve into Balinese culture and flavours. Set amongst picturesque rice paddy fields and located in central Ubud, it’s an ideal dining destination for anyone staying in the area. We loved the ambient table setting and mouth-watering menu which included many vibrant traditional and local dishes. Book a corner table and ask for recommendations from the staff for an intimate date night featuring nostalgic Ubud scenery or check out their buffet night for a lively cultural experience. The highlight of the buffet evening is the traditional Balinese dance performance which incorporates a rich blend of culture and entertainment. The dancers put on an enchanting show and we loved that they are open to getting the audience involved.

Favourite dishes from the appetizer menu included the "Ayam Tangkap" Classic aceh dish using fried chicken tossed with pandan, curry leaves and chili, the "Gado Gado Salad" Mixed boiled vegetables with peanut sauce, tofu and bean curd, and the "Kacang Kalas" Long bean in coconut milk and Balinese bumbu.

For the main course we recommend the "Sate Sapi Pontianak" Beef satay marinated with sweet soya, coriander, candle nut and pineapple, the "Ayam Panggang Kalasan" Grilled Javanese poached chicken with coconut water infusion and Indonesian spices, and the "Balinese Fried Pork Ribs" Fried marinated pork ribs Balinese style with Balinese sambal matah. For dessert finish with their "Dadar Gulung Kombinasi" Indonesian crepe filled with coconut palm sugar and sweet black rice porridge, or the "Es Cendol" Rice flour pandan jelly mixed with jackfruit and avocado for a perfect end to the meal.

Great for families with children or a unique dinner night while staying in Ubud.

A safe family layover at Singapore Changi Airport with Aerotel Singapore

Travel has changed a lot since we were on our last International flight in March 2020, and with children we were naturally worried about the new process and hygiene standards throughout our journey. We were so happy to find Aerotel at Singapore Changi Airport for our long layover ensuring not only did our family stay safe and comfortable but we were ready for the next leg of our journey well fed and rested. As soon as we disembarked our plane a member of the Aerotel team were there to greet us at the gate. We did not have to line up in crowded groups or go to any transit zones but were transported by buggy immediately from gate to hotel check-in. The check-in process was quick and easy and before we knew it we were in the comfort of our family room ready for a good night’s sleep. The spacious room incorporated two large bedrooms, full bathroom, and cozy lounge. The room included a complimentary meal for each of us including Kid’s Meal options which were a huge hit with our children. When it was time for our flight the next morning, the lovely team gave us a wake-up call and escorted us by buggy directly to our gate. There is no safer way to have a layover than at Aerotel. The service was informative and helpful and being able to sleep, eat, and relax in the comfort of our room while waiting for our next flight was essential when travelling with young children. Highly recommended for families who are travelling through Singapore.
