The little resort with its 8 bungalows is located about 3km from the (if you can say that is Sulawesi) "touristic" village Bira on a bumpy road. It is definately worth to come here if you want to relax, swim and maybe go diving for a couple of days. The bungalows are all very nice as we stayed during our... More

With the different spaced out bungalows this set up makes it worthwhile to stay many days and nights. The beach with its white sand is not big, but for a relaxed stroll big enough. The food is excellent and the Bintang was always cold and fresh. The bungalows are air conditioned and have a clean interior and a very nice... More

This place feels relaxed and comfortable. The bungalows/rooms are not really fancy but that doesn't matter with the location and very nice and friendly staff. Don't forget to visit the island which you can see from the beach.

It took us about 6 hours drive from Makassar to get to this resort. But it is so worthed. The bungalow itself is okay, not too fancy. The staffs are nice, the food is good.. But the beach and the view is so breath taking... It's not crowded like Bira Beach. Clean.. No shops around, so you should bring your... More

My friend and I had been looking for peaceful holiday. And Bara Beach Bungalows fulfill our desire completely. We were too excited, we woke up at 4am to just wait the sunrise. The beach is awfully beautiful and calm. Stefan and his team are very helpful on arranging our transportation. And the room is very spacious, so is the bathroom.... More

Beautiful white powdery beach, although not very wide (a 20 minute walk takes you from the left to the right side), extremely helpful, kind, and great staff: they organized a wonderful surprise at our birthday, tasteful food at the restaurant at an affordable price, ice cold bintangs, a private and large bungalow, nothing more to wish for. The road is... More

The last kms to the hotel is on a very bumpy road but worthwhile to do as the hotel is very nice situated. Nice sea view and its restaurant has good food! The personal service is excellent. A good tip for snorkling is to go by boat to one of the islands the underwater world is amazing

The perfect setting on a beautiful white beach. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The rooms were lovely and spacious surrounded by beautiful manicured gardens. It was one of the only resorts on the whole beach with lovely deck loungers and umbrellas. The staff had excellent English and so welcoming and friendly. Great food and... More
