About the Author
Anna Chittenden is naturally drawn to small and intimate places, where you might have the owner greeting you at the door, and you can feel their hard work and passion running through every aspect of the business. She loves hearing a chef talk about their commitment to local sourcing or meeting an artist whose skills have been passed down through generations. She enjoys staying at places that are thoughtful and authentic but are affordable at the same time.
All the recommendations that appear in Lost Guides Bali & Islands are here because they are great! She did not accepted commissions or payments to feature places in this guide – She simply writes about what she loves.
Who is this book for?
Anna has created Lost Guides Bali & Islands for today’s traveler – the stylish nomad with an interest in experience rather than expense and an eye for quality, design and authenticity. It is for those that don’t require over-the-top extravagance, nor have the budget of a backpacker – but are in search of those special places in-between.
