We started the day with breakfast at the nearby Sea Circus. The beauty of staying at W Seminyak was that it was such a fab location and was within minutes to most restaurants. We could have walked but having 2 kids and a narrow or non-existent pavement meant that we cabbed almost everywhere.
Side note: If the hotel called the cab in, we would have to pay the base charge of 30,000rupiah (S$3.20appx). It was not too pricey but the meter often showed the realms of 10,000rupiah. If we hailed a cab off the streets, we only had to pay the meter rate.
We ordered an Egg Benedict’s, standard eggs set and pancakes with bananas. They were all very delicious, so much so that Z actually finished up the pancakes which was no small feat!
We had such a filling breakfast that we walked to our next pit stop which was Potato head beach club. After considering for a bit, we decided to return to the comforts of our hotel to hang out instead. There was a minimal spend of US$50 to hit if we wanted to use the cabana and 2 towels.
Well, W hotel was less than 100m away from Potato head beach club. Hence, we walked back to the hotel via the beach front. It was blazing hot so we actually watched DVD in the room till we were hungry. We lunched at the poolside and spent the entire afternoon by the pool (where we had endless towel changes, complimentary snacks, attentive pool side crew to adjust our umbrella shade and convenience).
I guessed if you were staying at a full facilities hotel with an awesome pool, it did not really make sense to hit beach clubs in our case.
It was our wedding anniversary day, hence, we wrapped up the pool play by 5pm and headed to Metis for dinner.
It was a French restaurant and the food was really beautifully done. I had one of the best lobster bisque ever and it was only S$10.50?!
The foie gras was beautifully done too!
X gave us the best present by falling asleep and letting us enjoy the food in peace.
Z was very cooperative too and ate his carbonara up within a reasonable time frame. I had black cod and Mr H had the crispy pork belly. They were both very good. I ended the meal off with a dessert platter.
Mr H surprised me with a wedding anniversary cake from Metis! I was surprised but shocked too. I was overstuffed with the dessert platter. The cake was a beautiful and super delicious praline chocolate cake.
With that, our 7th wedding anniversary came to a gastronomica end. It was a happy and hearty day!
