“Beautiful place and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We have visited Tejakula, north of Bali for a couple of days and had the great pleasure of staying in Cili Emas. I have not much to say - amazing place, great service and fantastic food. The owners are the nicest people who created this beautiful hideaway. They have paid a lot of attention to details, so Cili Emas is full of balinese art. The pool area is fabulous and has this unique secret-garden atmospere. Every corner of Cili Emas feels special. I hope to go back. I felt as Bali was my home. Everything was easy at this place and time passed by soooo slowlyyyy:)

Room Tip: All 7 rooms are great:)

We stayed three nights in a double room located by itself. The accomodations of the room were very nice and AC is provided for good night sleeping. Pool, yoga room and spa are well dectorated and very nice.This resort is oceanside on a volcanic rocky beach with a smooth sea. The water is not for swimming, because of the trash floating near the shore and the water is not clear like South Bali. The owners are trying to educate the community to get better with this. There is no TV for movie watching, but can do via internet or on your computer. The main dinner meal is the same for everyone and all the hotel guest/owners eat the same meal offering together at a long table. This is good for conversation with a diverse group of people. The staff is very nice and accomodating. This resort is very quite and off the beaten path. You will need to bring a book or magazines of your liking as most offered are not in English. Also bring shower gel, shampoo, hair dryer and other bath needs as these are not provided like other hotels. You will also need an electrial adapter from U.S. 3-prong to Asian plugs. I forgot mine, but the resort had one for me to borrow during our stay. There are day trip offerings available or you can design outings of your own. Overall if you are looking for a very nice, quite, beach front resort that has a great deal of local Bali atmosphere then Cili Emas is worth looking at.

Superb, clean, friendly owners. Absolutely fantastic home cooked food, brilliant service and free water! Lovely quiet pool area, we were also able to get out on a fishing boat to see the dolphins. Lovely locals who just want to practice their language skills rather than sell you things! Lots of smiley faces. Only slight downside and in no way a reflection of the hotel management is the amount of rubbish in the sea, lack of local education and funds for rubbish disposal. I know the owners are working hard with the local government to try to educate and clean up! Cili emas, carry on the great work!

All of the positive reviews are still not enough to describe this little slice of serenity. Ignore any negative comments regarding the owners. They work behind the scenes to make your stay amazing. They pay attention to details- which really make all the difference. You never have to search for water, you always have a fresh jug at your fingertips. You can make this a raw food, yoga retreat or just an R&R pool holiday. It is all up to you. The facilities are there- at a fraction of the cost.

We decided to make here our longest stop in Bali and stayed for 5 nights and we felt sorry we did not have more time. As far a we are concerned, if you come to the north coast of Bali where tourisim is very rare, staying a Cili Emas is a perfect joice.
The question to ask is, if you want to experience a different Bali with no bars and fancy restaurants, no pushy taxi drivers and shop owners, tourists that have no respect for the culture of Indonesia and and and. Here in Tejacula we met the friendliest people on our trip, went out with the fisherman (and also saw the dolphines), drove around with scooter to see some local sights, took daytrips with a taxi and relaxed in the park of the hotel. But be aware, local also means that the beach has the usual trash you find unfortunately almost everywhere. But in return, the little town is kept very clean and we enjoyed walking the norrow backstreets.

After 10 days in UBUD we went at Cili Emas, on the North cost of Bali, in the small town of Tejakula. We had a single bungalow, perfect for a couple, with a very confortable bed. Cili Emas is a small and wonderful resort, with a very attentive staff. The owners Nicole and Jurgen and their team are always there to help and make your journey memorable, and Terry will for sure put a smile on your face. The food was excellent and fresh, the chef is very creative, with a unique touch for blending international and Balinese flavors. Dinner time, wich is communal, is a good way to meet the other guests and make new friends. We rent a scooter directly at the resort and visit Tejakula and the surroundings. The waterfall is a must see. You can also spend your days relaxing at the resort, looking at the fishermen on the beach, having a good massage and laying around the wonderful pool. We enjoy very much our stay, almost didn't want to leave this little piece of paradise.

My family and I had a really relaxing stay for 5 days at Cili Emas. The room (large family bungalow) was beautifully designed and appointed and very comfortable. With three bedrooms my kids had a room each which they loved. The food was excellent with a mix of Balinese and international dishes served in a communal setting. We met lots of lovely people in this way which is always fun. The owners (Nicole and Jurgen) and the staff were always very helpful with any requests we had. The village of Tejakula was lovely and friendly too so we spent time wandering around watching the fishermen, their families and others go about their daily lives. We also visited Singaraja, a bustling market town, some temples Amed for snorkelling and the waterfall located close to Tejakula. All were great fun and easily organised by the staff at Cili Emas or in town. We had lots of fun here and we hope to visit again.
