This bungalow is stand right in front of the Bara Beach that had a super soft and white sand, I really like it. You can feel the sand is like flour on your hand. Clear sea and small wave, suit for swimming and playing in the water. Also, this was the only beach that have butterflies flies from the 10... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends. It's beach front, has powdery sand beach and generous and smiling staff. Rooms are basic but clean. Staff is always helpful and the manager, Stephan makes us feel very welcome. It takes about 6 hours from Makassar to Bira beach but the stay at Bara Beach Bungalows is well worth... More

The Bara Beach Bungalows were our first choice to stay and spend 14 days of our longer journey through Sulawesi. The bungalows are well oriented, located in garden. However,only one has a direct beach view. Yet the guest can use the terrace with sunbeds and simply walk down few steps to the nearby beach, regularly cleaned by staff members. Rooms... More

Thanks to our professional guide and driver we arrived in one piece late in the evening for a 2 nights stay. There is no signposting of any kind to lead you to this resort, you need to know directions otherwise you will never find this private road, which is a long, poorly maintained dirt road. From the main road you... More

This is my 2nd time to Bira. Actually I choose Bara because I want to try different resort and end up dissappointed. Well, we must say that the breathtaking view in front of Bara and how the owner still responsible for the environment by taking all the stranded garbage from the beach in front of Bara are the only two...

If you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil spot at a very beautiful beach, than this is a wonderful place. We stayed at different beaches in Bali, but this was far the best. No night-life here but a romantic spot for swimming, snorkeling and enjoying the good food, laid back atmosphere and location. The bungalows were fine and we... More

After Anda Bungalows (to avoid) and Mangga Lodge (the neighbour, nice but overpriced) we ended our stay in Bira at Bara Beach Bungalows. Located on the beautiful Bara Beach near Bira, Bara Bungalows is a little paradise. Lovely bungalows, clean and well maintained. Breakfast is good, dinner very good, all served on the terrace with a magnificent view on Bara... More

Nice location, good stretch of relatively clean beach, certainly much better than Bira. It is a long drive on a bumpy road, if you do not have a car, access can be difficult. Overall it is a good end of the Toraja trip and place to stay after a drive from lake Tempe. However it is really nothing to do... More

Spent 3 wonderfully nights. Nice clean simple bungalows set above a superb clean beach where snorkeling is just great. Breakfast is just OK like elsewhere in Indonesia but dinner is good. A good address we recommend!
