I really liked this place. Great staff, one of the better breakfasts and really nice rooms. You pay for it of course, but c'est la vie. Was one of the few reliable wifi networks of the trip, and as the rooms are sent back you dont suffer from any noise from the nearby bars (of which there are many). Only... More

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst traveling Indonesia with local friends. The location was perfect close enough to the party at night and far enough away to also relax. The location is right behind the beach, with there little private part of the beach with deckchairs etc. The room was always clean with A/C and to top it all off... More

Bale Sampan bungalows had the highest quality rooms, beautiful and clean and right on the beach. Amazing, friendly, helpful staff and nice and quiet location! So lucky to have stumbled across Bale Sampan. Breakfast was awesome (banana pancakes are my recommendation) and they helped us to organise a private snorkelling trip! Absolutely amazing. Thank you so much to your wonderful... More

Accommodation is great! And the outside shower is a fantastic idea! Tina was amazing at responding to E-mails to confirm the booking and even arranged our transfers from Kuta to Island making the whole process as easy as possible. Paradise on a tropical island.

Our bungalow was great! The only the problem was the shower had no pressure! But you cant expect perfection when you're on an island! Breakfast is good. The staff service was awesome, they speak english very well. The little cafe out the front is great for food and drinks, the staff will bring your order down to the beach also.... More

The rooms are great, very comfortable, air conditioned, amazing bathrooms etc. Lovely little pool area and the hotel even has its own beach area. Food in the restaurant was lovely too!

We stayed for 6 nights in May. Loved the place. Food was fresh & really good. Great service in the cafe or on the beach. Great location. No noise from the bars but close enough to walk everywhere. Lovely friendly staff. Will definitely come back.
