Seek Out the Sunfish with AquaMarine Diving Bali’s

Inspired by the 4th Annual PADI Women Dive Day scheduled for July 21st, 2018, AquaMarine Diving – Bali is offering 20% discount on published prices for their female guests throughout the month of July!

This special offer covers snorkelling, their One Day Introductory Adventure Diving Programme, and PADI Courses, as well as day trips and safaris, including diving and accommodation packages, for certified divers.

Just imagine, an entire month dedicated to celebrating women and their passion for the ocean and diving. Not just for the grown ups either, this special is available to little ladies too aged 8 years and above!

AquaMarine Diving – Bali hopes this practice will help strengthen and support female divers from around the globe who come to join them in exploring Bali’s amazing underwater world.

Diving is about community, meeting new people, sharing experiences, and exploring the ocean. This special promotion is open to all levels of divers; whether you are certified or not, there is something on offer for everyone. According to PADI, globally there is still a gap between the balance of male divers (64%) and female divers (36%). Here’s an opportunity to close the gap, expand the female dive community and get involved.

If you would like to take up this offer, remember that by mid-July the Mola-Mola (Ocean sunfish) Season will be in full swing. So why not benefit from AquaMarine’s super discount and join a Mola-Mola Spotting Trip in July.

Mola-Mola are the world’s heaviest bony fish, reaching up to 1,000kg, and can have 300 million eggs. Their two long dorsal fins mean Mola-Mola can be 3.5m in height but, because they have rounded bodies, they are very narrow when seen from front/back.

Despite being so big, Mola-Mola are actually fairly difficult to find! Therefore, every day during the “season”, between one and three of AquaMarine’s custom-made dive boats (and Dive Guides!) head out to look for them. AquaMarine’s team have learned to be very secretive about where they find them!

Funnily enough, Mola-Mola have something in common with many of AquaMarine’s female guests: They love to sunbathe! Sunfish can spend up to half their day basking in the warmth of the sun’s rays so as to warm their bodies after deep dives – what clever creatures!

So come join AMD-B for their Women Divers July Special and become a mermaid with AquaMarine Diving – Bali!

AquaMarine Diving – Bali is located on Jl. Petitenget 2A in Seminyak (very close to Lio Square). To join them for a Day Dive Trip, Snorkelling, sign up for a PADI Course, or just have a chat, stop by their office or contact them

on Info@AquaMarineDiving.com.

And if you quote “Bali Advertiser”, you’ll also receive an AMD-B Goodie Bag!


It’s ‘Game On’ @ Finns for World Cup Soccer

Break out the beer and bar snacks and be ready for a few long weeks of late night viewing because World Cup Soccer is back for 2018! Yep, it’s the return of that 4 yearly phenomenon where spouses of soccer fans across the globe find themselves solo for weeks on end while our partners, possessed by the world’s most watched sport, sit glued to the screen well into the wee hours…..

Well, if you can’t beat ‘em…. I say join them! No point sulking at home alone when we could be sitting in the comfort of The Sports Bar @ Finns Recreation Club, cheering for our countrymen. The 21st instalment of World Cup Soccer comes to us this time from Russia, making its first appearance in Europe since 2006 and marking a World Cup debut for Eastern Europe.

1 month, 64 games, 12 venues, 11 cities and 32 teams (including newcomers Panama and Iceland) make up this year’s competition and Finns aims to bring as many live games to us as possible – right here in Bali. Of course the obvious time difference between Russia and Indonesia means that, as usual, we’ll be watching many of these games once the sun dips down but that gives us all the time in the world to continue with our regular island activities whether they include work, surf, sun or strolling the beach.

This much anticipated international competition commences June 14th and continues until the final, scheduled for the 15th of July. Russia and Saudi literally start the ‘ball rolling’ (sorry, it had to be said!) with the curtain raiser on June 14th followed by an average of 3 matches per day as the competition progresses throughout June.

As some of the matches kick off late into the evening, Finns management is requesting patrons register any interest in viewing these games by contacting their new member services representative and full time concierge, David Setyawan. Should there be considerable enthusiasm for any particular late night draws, Finns will do their best to extend trading hours at The Sports Bar to accommodate these preferences. The full schedule of the draw and local kick off and screening times at The Sports Bar can be found on the Finns website under the ‘What’s On’ tab.

Late nights, lack of sleep and bleary eyes aside, we all get a little caught up in World Cup fever whether we are soccer supporters or not. Along with the excitement of the competition comes the colourful cacophony of knock off jerseys strung up for sale in market stalls, animated banter and ribbing between supporters and a welcome resurgence of beach soccer at sunset.

Get into the spirit of the 2018 Soccer World Cup and join us at The Sports Bar for every moment of footy madness throughout the month of June. Check out the live sports schedule and kick off times here: www.finnsrecclub.com/whatson/tv-sport-program/ and remember to register your interest with Finns Concierge on: concierge@finnsbali.com   or on What’s App: +62 819 4911 2682 for any late night matches you’d like to see screened at The Sports Bar.


Look Hot for The Holidays

Skies are blue, Summer days are breezy and the holiday season is hotting up in Bali! Just as well Body Temple Spa has a stack of awesome specials running from June through August to ensure you’re looking on point for peak season parties and play!

Bamboo has long been regarded as a symbol of grace, strength, flexibility, endurance and longevity so it’s little wonder that it plays an important part in numerous spa therapies. As a part of their hot holiday offers, Body Temple Spa is extending a great deal on their signature Bamboo Massage for the Summer months ahead.

Reap the rewards of a full body massage employing a combination of soothing hand strokes and soft bamboo stick, using their sumptuous, all natural, warm candle massage oil. Or take it one step further and try out their luxe Bamboo Body Ritual. Beginning with a foot bath, move on to enjoy a warm, 30 minute body scrub, followed by a one hour Bamboo Massage with your choice of aromatherapy candle. Be ready for 100 minutes of relaxed bliss!

You can treat your body from top to toe this Summer, starting with Toni & Guy Essensuals free conditioning treatment complete with head and shoulder massage when you book any hair colour service! Bring your bestie along for a spa-rty session and you can enjoy two mani pedis for the price of one when you choose a Classic or Sports treatment.

Summer holidays means swimsuit season so it’s important to keep up with those all important hair removal appointments to ensure you’re always beach ready! Body Temple makes maintenance easy with their ‘Buy 2 get 1 Free’ promotion! Book any two waxing treatments and you’ll receive a third (of lesser value) gratis!

The team at Body Temple Spa understand that all of those sun, sand and surf activities can take their toll and tired bodies often need more than just one massage to ease achey muscles or soothe sun singed skin. Book your next massage for equal or lesser value on the day you come for your original treatment and they’ll treat that one to you for half price! You even have the opportunity to change your appointment time (once only) if something comes up (like the surf!….) and you just can’t get there!

Body Temple Spa is located on the quiet, lower level of Finns Recreation Club for the very best of beauty treatments and hair essentials. Toni & Guy now operate their Bali salon services exclusively out of their Finns location so advance bookings are advised. With these spa specials available across June, July and August you’ll be set to look svelte for the Summer!
