“Worth the price ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We stayed a week in the "superior room" the room was quite nice, (smelled of mildew, after the ac was on for a couple hours it went away) bed was new and clean, ac worked well tv had a few English channels. Breakfast was included in our 250,000 a night accommodation price , coffee was undrinkable so I drank tea for the rest of the time. I only ever ate the fruit, which was a small portion of mixed fruit (different every day) wifi worked but not great in the rooms. I read in other peoples reviews that thieves had come, we didn't have any problem, the washroom is half outside and there is a gap that a small person could fit through, but there is barbed wire blocking the hole now, also the bathroom has 2 locks on it (if there was a problem they've addressed it now, perfectly safe) people working there were nice, a little disorganized maybe just more laid back then I'm use to. I would say having a scooter is a must if you are staying here, all the properties are quite spread out and you're half way to the beach and the main road. All in all it was the best deal of many places checked

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend, and friend. Thieves came in during the middle of the night (while we were sleeping) and took our iPhones, an iPad, and wallet with a lot of cash. They also stole stole 5 other bungalows that night. There is a gap between the roof and wall in the bathroom, so they climb in through this way. This place was robbed the night before we arrived (we later found out) and 2 months before we got there. The staff didn't warn us about this or tell us to lock the bathroom doors. Nice rooms, and good location. Not worth getting everything stolen from you though. Be smart, go somewhere else or make sure you lock your bathroom door and sleep with your important items under your pillow.

The location of the bungalows is great, right in the middle of the woods with only a small road next to it. You can walk to the beach within 10 minutes or less and the setup around the bungalows is great, maybe they're a bit too close together. The atmosphere there is very calm, but soothing, great to relax.

The food in the restaurant was ok, nothing mind-blowing, but edible. The staff hardly speaks English, so any needs out of the ordinary are hard to get.

The rooms are actually not too bad, unfortunately the bathroom (as in many bungalows on Bali) was pretty rundown and not welcoming, although once nicely built. The bedroom was dirty and there were many stains on the sheets.

All in all not too inviting on the second glance...

Room Tip: Choose the highest priced rooms, they're a bit cleaner!

we stayed there for 2 nights in the deluxe room, which was surprisingly great compared to the price!
room was really clean and the bed really comfortable and is definitely worth more than what we paid for.
The location is perfect, a few 100 meters to Balangan beach (great surfing spot) and you can rent scooters there to go explore south kuta and Uluwatu.
The staff is really nice and smiling but they dont all speak english so you need to be patient and understanding

cheap rooms in an nice environment, but rooms were really dirty. Gecko poo all over the room even after the maid cleaned the room. You really need a motorbike cause the next big street with store/restaurants is approximately 5 km away. To get to the balangan beach is about 2 km.

Room was not very clean. Had a horrible musty smell and because of the staff's limited English they could not understand the problem. Bathroom was not clean and some of the fixtures were loose. The staff were nice and friendly. Also the location for this hotel on Google maps is incorrect, it is actually much further back away from the beach. They advertise that they have WiFi but it only seemed to work in the dining area. Barely even got a signal down in the room

We stayed here only for two nights but wished we had longer. The rooms are new, clean and inviting with a lovely thatched roof, air conditioning, and TV and set in a beautiful Balinese garden with a small swiming pool. It is a family owned business and the family were so friendly and accommodating. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the stunning beach along a peaceful country lane. If you were staying longer it would be wise to hire a scooter or a car as,at the time we were staying there was no food provided in the evenings meaning that you have to travel a while to get to local restaurants. This aside it is certainly a beautiful place to stay if you want to be close to Balangan Beach.
