This day would have no agenda but rest and relaxation. Besides sleeping in, taking a long dip in the infinite edge pool, and getting a massage, we make it down to Dreamland beach. Apparantly there were changes occurring to the area, and it was still under development. That didn't stop us from bargaining for umbrellas, chairs, massages, and boogie boards; consequently enjoying the beach. After soaking in the sun all day, Kim and Dan make their way home to the states, while Linda and I make our way to the other side of the island, at the Conrad in Nusa Dua. Again, I had used my Hilton points, like I had for Tokyo, to cover for the Conrad. It was a nice use of points. We did not do much but relax. Each morning, we got a choice of multiple breakfast locations and buffets. One was in front of the pool, another on a balcony overlooking a cabana with a yoga session. In the evenings, there were cocktailsand snacks, all thanks to my status with Hilton.

We visited another beach area in Kuta, did some shopping, wined, dined, and relaxed. I ended up getting a great deal on T-shirts due to some nice bargaining skills from Linda. We would walk away from one vendor, get the deal at another vendor, and get a better deal at the original vendor. The area around kuta was a little more crowded, and is a bit more happening then the more couple/family friendly area of Nusa Dua.
