They need to change the name "beach resort" to bungalow or homestay. Very average, bathroom kind of gross, the bed is very uncomfortable. Pool is nice and you can hear the waves outside your room. Door doesn't shut all the way and there's no mosquito net. AC is powerful. The owner is very nice and helpful. Wifi isn't very strong.... More

My partner and I were really hopeful about this place but unfortunately deceptive pictures strike again. Made, the manager of Rising Star is a very nice man and was very helpful in general however the place lacked an air of professionalism and to call this place a resort is just not right. We stayed in the deluxe ocean view room... More

To call Rising Star a 'resort' is certainly somewhat ambitious. The rooms are basic and could be cleaner and better furnished. Meals are very basic. We had read some bad reviews about Rising Star but chose it on account of its location. And, what a fabulous location. Five steps from the bedroom to the pool, five steps from the pool... More

I agree to all positive reviews on that resort. We visited last year here with friends. One of the girls began to cry when she saw it first because it is so beautiful. With this little charming ressort just everything is perfect. Not only this. The owner and his family are very nice. They even took us with them a... More

I can't say enough good things about Mahde and Rising Star. I paid about 22 a night to stay here, and it was totally worth it. It is right on the beach, literally on the beach. This was awesome, every morning i opened up the doors of my room and was looking at the ocean. Breakfast was included and it... More

Price, breakfast and location were all ok, and then it goes downhill. Rooms are old and tired, damp smelling if not septic, run down garden, broken tiles in the swimming pool, Mosquitos, 43 steps. Seriously needs a rebuild or a major renovation.

We booked this resort on Travelocity but when we arrived the owners were unaware of our booking. They set us up in a room (which was very dirty and had bugs) and then requested that we pay them again, despite showing them a print out indicating that we had already paid for the hotel and forwarding them the email.

I spent two nights there. The whole staff incl. the balinese owner are real hosts and care whereever they can about you. The location is just great with private access to the beach. The pool and the pool restaurant are located directly on the beach as well. The rooms have really competitive price and a nice interior incl. a/c and... More

Made, the host, was extremely accommodating and helpful. The room (standard ocean views) were basic but clean. It's very quiet, located away from the road and right on the beach. I was able to fall asleep to the sound of waves, not motorcycles. Great spot, lovely staff. I'm staying again next week!
