Do not book this hotel. Online booking does not guarantee a room, as they double book rooms and will try to scam you by taking you to a shittier room elsewhere worth less than half the price, pocketing the difference. Beware of shady men on motorbykes that follow you to the hotel, attempting to intimidate you to secure a dodgy... More

The bed is big and seems comfortable, but it's very hard falling asleep as it creeks loudly every time you move. But the worst part is that a machine in the lake starts exactly at 4am and stops at 7am. (Just in front of the bungalow) and it sounds as the engine of a big truck. Not even earplugs worked....

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
