Our Private BBQ Experience At The Elysian, Seminyak

During our time in Seminyak, we spent five nights at The Elysian resort & like our villa in Ubud, it had a private pool and a pretty incredible bath situation. While they were both just as amazing as each other, our villa in Seminyak had a much more modern and luxurious feel to it.Bali Private Swimming Pool

 We only had one full pool day and the first thing we did was open the big front room windows which covered two whole walls. We loved that our whole garden was in the sun during the day but turning the living room into part of the garden meant we were able to lay in our air conditioned lounge when it got too much. The resort also supplied an Ipod dock so we hooked that up with my nano that I haven’t updated since 2009. The first song that came on with from the Lizzie McGuire movie which had us giggling; Andrew actually loves that song.

After reading a few trip advisor reviews, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my one pool day at The Elysian. They offer private in-villa BBQs and at £35 we booked up for lunch! Everyone seemed very confused as to why we didn’t want to book for dinner, I supposed it’s more romantic but we didn’t want to stay in the villa all night so decided to book ours for 2pm so there was lots of pool time and sunbathing before and after.

Right on time, a whole team of people turned up at our villa and all got to work at once, it was a bit of a whirlwind five minutes actually as we were just expecting a some food and a DIY BBQ to arrived. Two men brought in a big gas grill and got to work setting that up, our sunbed was moved out of the way and replaced with a table and chairs, complete with tablecloth and flower, someone else brought the food (we went for seafood option), another person came as swept the garden and one more cleared any leaves that were floating in the pool; they all did their jobs and then disappeared, leaving Andrew and I with a chef and waiter.

After waving them all off; (everyone was so friendly) amazed, we both sat down in our swimwear whilst the chef got to work putting everything on the BBQ and drenching it all in melted butter. Our waiter first brought all the sides up to the table; garlic bread, potato salad, avocado and a bowl of steamed rice, it wouldn’t be Asia without the rice! I thought it might be a little bit awkward having them there but they made us feel comfortable and we really enjoyed chatting to them.

Once salad was served, the first round of fish was ready! There was so much food. We started with tuna steaks, Mahi Mahi, jacket potatoes and grilled squid followed by king prawns and half a lobster each and every piece was delicious.

Once all the food was cooked, they asked if we wanted anything else and then left us to enjoy the afternoon together telling us to call them when we were ready for someone to come and clear up. They even had dessert delivered half an hour later but I was honestly too full by then!

We spent the rest of the afternoon the same way we had spent the morning, playing around in and out of the pool and relaxing in the sunshine (and in the shade). It was all very honeymoony but such a wonderful day!
