We stayed in the penthouse, amazing views of the ocean and marina. Walking distance to the boat club and multiple cafes, boutiques at the marina. Try Cafe Balena! Urangan fisheries is a very short walk across the road for fresh seafood straight out of the ocean. Perfect location to stay for the seafood festival as it's just across the road.... More
