Gravity Hotel | Review

We stayed 5 nights total in Uluwatu, and Gravity Hotel was where we spent the last 3 nights. Gravity was recommended to us by a friend who travels to Bali often enough to make me very green with envy! It really is a magical little spot perched on a hill overlooking Ulu… but there are a few things you should know before booking there:

Makakatana Bay Lodge

When it comes to getting away, I personally have never found any vacay to be more relaxing than a bush vacay! I don’t know if you feel the same way, but the moment I enter the gates of a game reserve it is as if all my stress is left outside those mile-long wire fences, and I instantly become lighter and freer! It was the same, if not even more so, when Justin and I escaped for two nights to 4 star Makakatana Bay Lodge over my birthday.  I say possibly even more so because Makakatana Bay Lodge is situated within iSimangaliso Wetland Park, so not only is it lush and green, which is always good for the soul, but it is located on the western shores, and so offers a true bush experience while being closely situated to the coast and lake St Lucia estuary, which is very unique and special. And… can you say TRANQUIL?
