“Friendly Staff, nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

This place is nicely organised. The garden is well maintained with beautiful flower. The Pool is amazing with the view on the see. I love it.
I went there with my 2 years old daughters and the staff were really friendly and have done everything to make us feel good. Recommended.

Words cannot fully describe our experience at the Bay Shore Huts.

We have just spent the most relaxing 4 nights here and cannot fault anything about this resort. The resort is on Tamarind Bay which is not a swimming beach but it is about 15 minutes from Mushroom Beach where you can swim. It is about a 20 minute drive to Lembongan Village or about an hour plus walk.

The staff here could not go out of their way enough to help us. When we checked in our aircon was not working and the manager worked hard to have a smaller system installed as a temporary measure so that we could sleep that night. I have never experienced this level of service even in a big hotel.

The resort is the perfect place to relax but is also in a position where you can easily access other parts of the island. I would recommend their snorkelling trip.

Prices are reasonable for the activities we did and the food and alcohol is on par with other resorts. We will stay here again next time we come to Bali.

Definitely would recommend for families, couples and groups of friends - great little hotel.

Great set-up of huts all connected by walkways. Nicely presented, clean and well managed.
Two lovely pools with beachside pool being the pick as it is practically overlooking the water. Perfect for a 6-year old and adults alike. Location is interesting - Tamarind Beach is located between Mushroom beach and the main Lembongan beach-strip so can feel a bit isolated, but is great for privacy of floating by the pool drinking Bintangs without gawking passer-by traffic.

Hotel staff very helpful with organizing snorkeling and SUPs at very reasonable (and negotiable) prices.

Restaurant was really good - very well priced - had excellent dinner first night with seafood platter (Rp80,000) being pick; no breakfast buffet but choice between American or traditional was more than adequate; importantly Bintang was cheap and cold.

Surf-wise, view of back of Playgrounds was adequate for morning surf-check and was close enough to walk/paddle out to.

No major negatives:
Transfer from boat... We thought being located on the beach we'd be dropped at the hotel but we had to get transferred from lembongan main beach;
Aircon... Room 1 was just adequate; room 2 was non-existent even with numerous attempts to get fixed - lack of insulation in the timber/thatch hut style probably doesn't assist with aircon cooling style though;
Also, we had no wifi for the duration of stay but it was very stormy and apparently the dish was out.

We'd like to be able to be able to write a proper review of this accommodation however we will not be staying here due to their clearly very incompetent booking system. I see other travelers have had issues with this hotel over booking itself as well.
We had paid in full, received our booking confirmation email, then gone and booked our flights etc etc, only to receive a call this morning that our booking has been cancelled due to unavailability. They offered us a suite at the Tamarind Beach Resort - not acceptable. The alternative that was offered is definitely not of the same standard and for only $30 less we told them not to bother.
Really disappointing that this hotel cannot manage a reservation system and thinks it's ok to offer a cheap and nasty alternative to remedy their mistakes.
We are now searching for alternative accommodation which is not easy as this was considered to be one of the best beach front resorts on Nusa Lembongan. Such a shame that their reservation system or the people maintaining it are letting them down.

Dear sir and madam,

Thank you very much for your write a review at Trip Advisor.

Your review is quite unfair for us a hotel. Let me clear here one thing. This hotel is not having a over booked system since the last review was told about this.

We have been fixed our reservation system and always concern about the comment from our valued guests and worked hard to covered our mistaken. We learn from our mistake and not just let it happen.

One thing need to be clear,
EVEN if this happened it is not make sense as you written that you were told on day the you were came and room was not available.

Basically the system is Hotel never RECEIVED payment from the guest until the guest arrive at our hotel. Far away before the guest came , we were always communicated either with their agent or direct to the guest that room is not available and usually agents suggested us to offer at least 2 different hotel alternative( nearby of hotel or other room style ) otherwise if the guest rejected, they will have FULL refund from the agents. So it means it is nonsense you said the agent called you in the morning on the time you were supposed to check in.

We worked with some various online travel agents and they were all very cooperative to helped us should hotel have over booking . Over booking is very critical issued and we very much aware about this.

My suggestion to you sir, please go back to your online agents and asking a refund as you were not happy stayed with us or you can communicated with me personally at omegasan1@yahoo.com for further information ( at least i know of your name and i can help you to manage this ).

Thank you and looking forward to received your email.

Best regards,
Sujati

We spent 4 nights here at the end of November and loved it. I really liked that it wasn't right in the middle of the busier parts of the island but still close enough to everything. The huts were clean, there's an amazing view of the volcanos in Bali when the clouds clear, the staff are really friendly and good fun, there's 2 clean pools and the food was good. We were about to get on the boat to leave when we realised that our daughter had left her laptop at reception as we had gone swimming after we'd checked out. They immediately delivered it to us but it got worse. Same daughter had left her passport in the safe in her room. By this time we were in Sanur so we contacted Bayshore Huts who sent someone over in the morning who delivered it to our villa in south Sanur. I wish I could remember his name. We really appreciated their honesty and amazing service. It would have been a major drama if we hadn't got the passport back. Needless to say we did a lot better checking when leaving hotels and villas after that. I'm sure we'll be back to stay here again.

my fiance and i stayed at Bayshore for 4 nights in January 2013. It's a new, very clean property, well maintained. Right on Tamarind Beach with a lovely pool. Friendly staff. Great place to get away from it all and just relax! It's well located in terms of being in the middle of everything (15 mins to ceningam island, 5 mins to Dream beach & Mushroom beach). However it is about 15 minutes on scooter to the main town of the island, so if you're there mainly to surf it might be a little bit isolated. Perfect for couples.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room, it's worth the extra cost.

This review is overdue!! We stayed for 10days in Dec 2012 and did not want to leave! Anyone looking for a tranquil slice of paradise should go here, and before the circus of Bali-main spills over to Lembongan. Beautiful rooms, great service and at an excellent price :-)
