Written by Terry Gardner

You don’t have to watch The Bachelor to live like him. Here’s how to book the same digs Chris Soules has in Bali. Nice.

aNewDomain — Reality TV. Love it or hate it, some of the destinations reality shows visit are just pure eye candy.

Even if this year’s bachelor, Chris Soules aka Prince Farming, doesn’t make your heart pound, The Mulia & Mulia Villas will. Now in its 19th season, “The Bachelor” visits Nusa Dua, Bali on February 23 for its Fantasy Suites episode. 

bail-bachelor-muliaThe Mulia is an all-suite boutique property with 111 suites.  Mulia Resort has 526 accommodations that include lagoon pool rooms and suites.  The resort’s spa is considered the most luxurious on Bali. Since its opening on Feb. 1, 2013, the resort has frequently won awards.

Last month it garnered spots on several of TripAdvisor’s top 25 lists in its 2015 Travelers’ Choice Awards. The Mulia placed third on the top 100 hotels and resorts in Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers Choice Awards for 2014. 

And Nusa Dua beach? It was voted the top beach in Indonesia for 2015 by TripAdvisor Readers.

The Mulia & Mulia Villas are offering a Fantasy Retreat Package to help couples experience Bali Bachelor-style. 

You won’t save dough, but pleasure is practically guaranteed.  The package starts at $2,250 and includes a three-night stay in an ocean-front suite at The Mulia, roundtrip airport transfers, a private jacuzzi with caviar and champagne and dinner for two at Soleil, the resort’s beach front fine dining restaurant, which is ranked #7 on TripAdvisor out of 122 restaurants in Nusa Dua

Bachelor Chris Soules, in case you need a catch up, endeared himself to fans of “The Bachelorette” when he wooed Andi Dorfman last year.  He is a wealthy, businessman farmer from Arlington, Iowa.
