It was an astonishing stay in this small paradise, even when it was for only one night! Lovely bungalows, a romantic diner with an excellent view on the beach and sea ..... Crew with a high grade of hospitality and service. Thx

Beautiful beach although it rained a lot, the view worth the bumpy long road to get there. But the attitude of the staff sucked. Especially the man in army t'shirt. We booked 2 bungalows because he said only two left when we booked by phone. Arriving there, no smiles, no helps and no welcoming words. It's okay for extra bed... More

8 spacy bungalows, along a path, leading through a flowergarden (lots of butterflies) to a pretty white beach. Idyllic! But then...... shabby bed linen, no towels available!!!! "due to the rain, we could not dry", a toxic bathroom due to an excesively moulding and leaking ceiling, no water/or drips from taps and shower, no proper doorkey, visitors toilet out of... More

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
