My Bali Birthday!

Wow, it finally happened.

I finally turned 30.

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t very upset or panicked about turning thirty. I think that I’ve had an incredible decade during my twenties and I have no regrets so that definitely made it easier. I think that all of the exciting adventures that are coming up for my little family also made me excited about the big 3-0.

But the fact that I was celebrating it in an amazing 5 star hotel with my wonderful husband in Bali definitely made turning thirty a lot easier!

It was a perfect day from start to finish.

Jason really outdid himself!

I woke up at about 7:30 and we chatted in bed for a while. I then got up to use the bathroom but found a beautiful rose petal path instead. It led me to my laptop and to an envelope. I opened my laptop to find a folder on the desktop saying open.

On it was a beautiful 10 minute video full of birthday messages from all of my family and friends all over the world. I even got to see one of my best friends new baby on it! It really was the perfect way to start my birthday!

I then opened the envelope to find that we would be going on a couples spa day to Bali Botanica spa followed by a three course dinner at Bridges restaurant! I was so excited!! He had also made some wonderful vouchers for lots of random things that I’m definitely planning on using on him in the future! (massages, date nights, hugs etc.) How great is my husband?!

We went up for breakfast in the hotel only to find all of the staff singing happy birthday to me with a birthday cake. Neither of us had mentioned it to them and when they started singing it didn’t even click that it was for me. But it was such a lovely gesture from them and the guy that organised it was so excited!


Afterwards it was still pretty early and we weren’t being picked up for our spa until 2 o clock so we spent the rest of our morning relaxing in our day bed and just chatting while taking in our beautiful jungle view. It rained a bit but as you can see, even the rain in Bali is beautiful!



Before we knew it it was time for our spa day.

When we arrived we were given a form to fill out. It was very impressive, we got to choose how hard of a massage we wanted, the areas that we wanted them to focus on, areas that we wanted them to go softer on etc.

We then got to choose what type of rub to use. I chose a herb scrub which is supposed to be helpful to sensitive skin (plus I was suffering from a heat rash so they said the herbs would help to ease the itching). Jason chose a green tea scrub.


We were then brought in to our couples room. It was beautiful! We had two massage beds, two showers and a beautiful bath in front of a window overlooking a river.

We had an amazing massage, followed by a full body scrub, then some natural yogurt on top of the scrub followed by a beautiful flower bath.

The final part of our spa day was a pedicure. It was the perfect way to spend my day.

We were then shuttled off to Bridges restaurant which is such a romantic restaurant! We had the best seat in the house and our table was covered in rose petals (I have never seen so many petals in my life as I had in those couple of days)



Our dinner was delicious (my eggplant ravioli started was the best!) and it was the perfect ending to a perfect day 🙂

Jason really pulled out all of the stops for my birthday and I just feel so lucky to have him for the rest of my life.

Now I have to try to come up with something equally wonderful for his birthday this month!

Spa: Bali Botanica is situated in Ubud and picks you up from your hotel. You can find their website here. Highly recommended!

Dinner: Bridges is central to Bali. Our spa package included the three course dinner and the spa dropped us off at the restaurant after our treatments. You can find their website here.
