|We were greeted by cool Jasmine-scented towels and lemongrass tea|
R is bigger now, but not much has changed in that department. She still needs one nap daily (we had to skip her nap on our last day in Java and hoo boy was that unpleasant: think multiple public tantrums, something that she almost never does otherwise), which because she can't sleep well anywhere but in her crib means a midday return to the hotel, plus 12 hours at night in the room. So the hotel needs to be centrally located and pleasant to spend time in.
|Decorative deer in the lobby|
|The hotel is surrounded by extensive and beautiful gardens, even though it's in the middle of the city|
|R at the outdoor bakery/cafe: we had afternoon coffee and cakes here every day|
|Breakfast buffet with on-call waffle/pancake guy|
|Kids' playroom: R liked stacking the Rodies|
|R sliding down the slick pathway: such fun for her! She insisted her father drag her up and down by her ankles whenever possible (ie, at non-crowded times)|
