Nestled on a hill near Bali’s Valley of the Kings, Viceroy Bali Resort&Spa offers accommodation units that combine comfort and privacy. The 25 villas of the resort are integrated within this scenic landscape, allowing each of the guests here to enjoy exquisite views from the comfort of their cottage-like dwelling. Despite their partially-rustic appearance, the villas come with the latest electronic amenities, as well as a pool and private outdoor spaces for relaxation. Some of the features of the resort include a bar with a famous collection of scotches and cognacs, a restaurant serving a contemporary French menu influenced by exotic Asian flavors, a Spa offering sublime views of the Petanu River valley, a conference room, a gymnasium and a helicopter pad. Even though the uniqueness and charm of this resort derives from its secluded nature, for visitors wanting to experience local culture, the village of Ubud lies just minutes away. Looking forward to read your comments and opinions regarding this tropical hideaway.
Here’s the catch: San Diego comes with what locals call a “sun tax.” It’s pricey to live in “America’s Finest City” and the surrounding county, and the region perennially ranks among the most expensive in the country. It’s often a landlord’s market on the apartment front, and home prices are well beyond what many locals can afford. Still, millions of people manage to make San Diego their place in the sun. We spent more than 30 hours conducting extensive research on San Diego’s apartments, neighborhoods and residential options. We looked at more than 80 apartment complexes in the San Diego area, categorizing them by location and comparing them with a set list of criteria. Besides basic information such as year constructed, number of units and average rent prices, we factored in community amenities such as outdoor spaces and fitness facilities.
