All of us work very hard to make a living for ourselves, and to provide for the ones we love. If it were up to us and was actually possible, we would send all of our loyal players on holiday to their destination of dreams. Seeing that as much as we’d love to make that happen but cannot, we are going to send you on a mini-vacation in this article and help you visualise an exotic trip to the Bulgari Resort Mansions in Bali. To top things off, we’re also going add three exotic cocktails you can order during your flight to paradise on Singapore Airlines. Read about your virtual vacation right here!
Picture this: your own private pool, sun deck, garden and bar. Let’s not forget panoramic views of the Indian Ocean...This could all be yours after beating the odds of playing the lotto online with Mega Millions or SuperEna Max.
So you’ve just managed to match all the main numbers plus the bonus numbers, and your bank account has been loaded with $84 million. You book your soonest flight to Bali, because, let’s face it, it is absolute paradise on earth. You are also flying first class, of course.
Thanks to fierce competition between airlines, flight cuisine has gotten much fancier with the input of celebrity chefs and partnerships with five-star hotels. Some of these celebrity culinary master features include Joel Robuchon’s contribution to Air France food, or Regent Singapore to All Nippon Airways. So when Virgin Atlantic and Emirates Airways announced their classy new bars, cocktails were obviously the next order of business on board.
Unlike food which tends to flavour up in the air, particular cocktails surprisingly hold their own against the high-altitude effect on sensory perceptions. The trick is simply kowing which drinks to prepare because you can’t serve them all. Joost Heymeijer, senior vice-president of catering for Emirates says: “On-board an aircraft, mixologists are subjected to time constraints and limited choice of spirits (because of a lack of space).” Herbs and flowers lose their freshness in a mere half an hour and liqueurs have to be decanted into mandatory 100ml bottles due to the pressurization in the cabin. Whilst on your voyage to the Bulgari Mansions in Bali, your palette will get thirsty for some top-notch refreshments. Here are 3 cocktails to have when flying with various luxury airlines...
1. Bloody Mary From Emirates
Tomato juice is the most popular ordered beverage during a flight, so of course it would make perfect sense that the Bloody Mary would be the top choice. The strong, clean profile of the vodka complements the umami taste of the tomatoes.
2. Collins From Korean Air
A nice amount of lemon juice gives the Collins cocktail a tartness that lingers on the palate. By using vodka instead of the usual gin, it ups its flavour profile.
3. Singapore Sling From Singapore Airlines (Of course)
The herbal notes of Benedictine Dom in the Singapore Sling give an extra edge to the mix of gin, cointreau and grenadine syrup. “The use of lime and pineapple also gives the cocktail a good amount of acidity to counter diminishing taste,” explains a Singapore Airlines representative.
You have just ordered one of these fabulous cocktails, and you are now looking out your window as you approach your luxurious destination...
You already love Bulgari’s fragrances and jewellery. You appreciate just how everything is tasteful, luxurious, and oh-so indulgent. The chances are that that’s how you like your holidays too. So you are going to be checking into Bulgari Resort Bali – more specifically, into the Mansions at an ultra-luxe, secluded portion of the resort. This exlusive, off-the-grid resort was launched late last year with luxury villas combining every comfort of home, hotel and more.
Every one of the mansions houses three to five bedrooms and includes a spacious patio, living room, dining room, terrace, a fully-equipped kitchen, a bar, and even a separate complex for service staff. You heard us, service staff. At your every beck and call. But wait! There’s more...You also have your very own private garden and pool – a two-tiered heated one at that, too, surrounded by sun decks.
So, basically this place is the ultimate paradise for the filthy-rich. Just imagine revelling into the early hours of the morning in your very own private heated pool, popping champagne at your private bar, and stumbling at the end of a crazy night into this bedroom:
The rest of this exclusive resort is darn swanky too: there is a spa with large private rooms, a 1.5 km private beach, a swimming pool built on the edge of a cliff, and a Hindu temple at the highest point of the resort offering unobstructed views of the magical and enchanting sunsets. And everywhere you look is just the dazzling blue waters of the warm Indian Ocean. It’s enough to make anyone with a desk job cry. We’re sobbing a little inside just telling you about this place of dreams.
Indulging yourself like a King or Queen here does come to a hefty prize, however. Rates for the Mansions at Bulgari Resort Bali, start at $10,570 a night. Gulp! But never fear because that is just pocket change for you seeing that you’ve got $84 million in the bank.

Best of luck!
