Dear Friends,

Welcome back to Kamandalu Resort & Spa's bi-monthly newsletter for the months of November - December 2013.

We are proud to be a part of this year's tenth anniversary of Ubud Writers Readers Festival. Hundreds of writers and experts on various fields shared their expertise and experiences during those five-day festival. The festival's Special Event held at Kamandalu had the most attendants this year and we were very pleased to be a part of it.

The weather in Bali has been generous to us with clear blue skies and sunny days, the kind of weather that entices people from all over the world to come to Bali over and over again. Here in Kamandalu, the surrounding rice terraces are as picturesque as one can get: a vast of emerald green tapestry. In few weeks from now, their color will change into yellow, a sign that the rice paddies are ready to be harvested. We always look forward for that time as we will invite our guests to get muddy and have a first hand experience of cropping the paddies, truly an unforgettable experience for the guests.

From sunny Ubud, we hope to welcome many of you soon
