I was the lucky one having the last cottage, the one next to the fence. The wind was blowing all the time, because the walls are not really walls ( see through walls) and there was nothing to stop it from the left side. Because there is a light on all the time in front of the room, all the... More

My fiancee and I booked this room ahead of time via the Lonely Planet/Expedia reservation system. When we arrived the staff had no idea we were coming and seemed genuinely confused as to why we just 'showed up' at their cottages. On top of that, they charged us 600,000 rupiah for the lodge, which I later found out had already... More

We stayed here becuse we wanted a place near lake batur so that we can do a sunrise trekking in the morning. The photos in their website were great so we chose this place. Upon the arrival we found that we're the only guest in this hotel. The room was as seen in photos but without any basic amenity. I... More

We had very mixed feelings about Baruna (and the Batur region as a whole). On the positive side, the hotel has a great location and there's nothing like waking up with a big lake and volcano in front of you. The staff is also very friendly (even if they don't speak English very well). On the other hand, there are... More

Great location on the lake, couldn't ask for better. Clean and neat. Spacious room with king size bed, my room had large glass windows so the views toward the lake were really great. My friends stayed in a similar room with the window facing the garden. My bed had a mosquito net around it which obscured the light placed high... More

Hotel in Desa Buahan is remote from main attractions but they can organise all the local guides and drivers for you. Friendly home stay environment, with fresh farmed fresh fish on menu, Good for Batur trek & hot springs would be a good base for Mt Agung also.

The price is about $50. Pancake breakfast. Satisfied with the view in front of the room hotel. Interior design is mostly made by wood. Actually, I slept at the new room of this hotel. The room has glassing door so you can enjoy the lake and mountain view directly from your room. Sunshine and cool atmosphere greet you suddenly when... More

Stayed here a couple of times over the last few years and always been made welcome by Putu and his family. The rooms are large and spacious. Ask for a bungalow overlooking Lake Batur. You can go out to the fish farm to get your dinner which is a nice touch. The pace of life is slow which is just... More

We booked this place as it is a perfect stopover for our sunrise volcano batur trekking. The owner organised everything for us, including the driver and trekking. Me and my two girlfriends truly enjoyed our stay here. We even get to do our own fishing for our dinner. The fishing experience was so memorable and not your usual boat and... More

My friends and I stayed in 5 different hotels while in Bali, and this was by far our favorite. I just got home today after 30 hours of travel and had to write a review ASAP - that's how good our experience was! Pros: • Right on the lake, literally steps from the water. The view is breathtaking! • The... More
