The wind had somehow developed into a storm by night time. The wind was so ferocious it literally bang on our door. At around midnight the electricity was cut out. Turned out the hotel genset was broken and we were stranded with no electricity for 30 hours!
We don’t have water in our room anyway so the day was spent all day swimming in the sea, at the pool and sunbathing.

We walked for lunch to Warung Bambu (I read some good reviews here. The food was good and the portion is big). We were told that the whole Bulukumba didn’t have electricity as the storm last night had hit some of the power pole. It’d take a long time to fix. (Turned out we had electricity out for 30hours!)
It was extremely disappointing that the resort didn’t have a generator ready. At night I could see some bungalows in liukang island had some lights which meant even they had some generators The hotel staff brought us supply of water with buckets so we can have a shower. Shame that I also had to ask for it instead of having the staff offered to do so.

The electricity was back only the next day at around 8am. When we checked out the staff offered us to use the shower in the suite room as it’d take few hours to have the water running properly again in all the rooms. The manager in charge also gave us a discount for the room rate.
Lesson learnt I felt glad that we always pack a torch with us whenever we travel. Even better if we had packed our solar charger too. And lastly always count all your blessings. It was that easy to turn holiday sour but we were in a nice resort, nice beach, together with the people we loved the most and we didn’t have to work. Nothing beats that!
