We stayed here for 3 or 4 nights and they were absolutely the best nights we had during our one month in Indonesia. The Balian beach area is almost like a paradise…just almost, because you can't really swim in the ocean with the kids. Luckily they have a really good pool at the istana balian;) We had the room upstairs... More

I stayed here with my husband for 3 nights on a surfing trip. He surfed and I relaxed. I didn't really know what to expect of Istana as there aren't many reviews. We were pleasantly surprised with how friendly and nice it was. Our room was quite basic but we had a lovely view of the sea. At first I... More

We stayed here for 5 days and loved it. The pace of Balian is very slow and the whole experience was very relaxing. Istana is only a 5 min walk down the hill to the surf break which you have to get up early for. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were huge and clean and meals were nice... More

These villas are well set out and have fabulous views. The manager here, Lina, is really lovely and very helpful. Extremely comfy beds. Breakfasts and other meals here were hearty and fresh - but in Bali time. Only a few easy minutes walk down to the beach and warungs overlooking the fabulous surf break. There are cheaper rooms here in... More

Had a wonderful weekend getaway from Ubud. Walking on a quiet beach, watching the surfers enjoying the waves. Cooling off in the room side pool, ahhhh, nice.thanks for a great stay. The gentle breeze blowing through the room kept it cool in the hottest parts of the day.
