We went here from Ubud to do the Mount Batur tour. Our driver already told us that the Kintamani region is ruled by a kind of Mafia that rips off tourists. There were several guys on scooters following our taxi asking where we are going, so that the driver had to make clear that we already booked and that they... More

Putu and his family are my true lifesavers. Together with a friend I had a motorbike accident on the steep road down to lake Batur. I was hurt really badly, could not get up and had a lot of pain in my back. Putu drove behind us with his car and immediately picked me off the street, drove me to... More

Stayed in Baruna as the first pit-stop of our Bali Tour. AMAZING view of batur lake and the surroundings. Crazy breeze and fun breakfast at the gazebo overlooking the Batur Lake were the takeaways. The owner was relaxed and friendly, often asking us if anything was amiss. Highly recommend this hotel for a stay. If you are a nature person,... More

The little village is very quiet but if you fancy hiking mount Batur and taking a dip at the hot springs then this is a perfect location. The room was really cute, its called a bungalow but it's a little glass walled house, the room is massive as is the bathroom. The staff are really lovely and helpful. Had a... More

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
