“A hidden quiet treasure in a busy world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Set back from the hustle and bustle of Legian and Kuta - yet close enough to make the beach, shopping, restaurant and bar scenes accessible - Arca Bungalows are a hidden treasure of peace, calm and quiet. The apartments are super. The bed extremely comfortable. My room even had its own little water fall.... I loved listening to the sound! Fun pool. Easy to meet people and chat, or just hang out in your own very comfortable unit. Breakfast brought to your room. Love this place.

Room Tip: It can be a little hard to find since it is on a small side street. Don't give up if you have t...

There is almost no territory inside hotel - just rooms and pool and that's all.
Breakfast is horrible, sorry:) Regarding there are many restaurants everywhere it make sense just not provide the breakfast at all. It will be more easy for owners and more suitable for tourists.
Internet is fast, 2-floors room is very nice (do not forget that 1-st floor is open from outside - just a low wall, so don't forget to secure your door on the second floor.
Staff is adequate. Not noisy. Fridge, 2 toilets & showers, big bed, TV, AC... small cozy swimming pool. it's simple but nice in general.

Room Tip: Try to ask rooms not just opposite of swimming pool - otherwise all the tourist will swim just on yo...

Absolutely loved this place! Stayed 5 nights in the family bungalow which is huge with very comfy beds and everything you need. Enjoyed the place so much we changed our plans to come back here and stayed in an apartment by the pool which was also great with kitchen, lounge and bathroom downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Jode and his staff are the best! They go out of their way to make sure guests are happy and well taken care of! Can't wait to stay again!

Great hotel, Jode and his staff were so friendly and helpful. Our suite was very spacious, clean and had a great veranda to relax on. Jode goes above and beyond to make sure you are well looked after while at Arca. Definitely recommend staying here while in Legian.

We stayed at Arca Bungalow in total 8 nights in October 2013 and really enjoyed it. The owner is a really nice and friendly guy and the other staff as well. We had a huge and clean room in the new building with a very comfy bed, fridge, huge bathroom and a balkony with furniture. Breakfast is included and very tasty. Nothing special, but ok. The beach is a 15 minute walk from Arca. Some friends stayed in a small flat right infront of the pool, which was also worth the money.

I stayed at Arca Bungalows for New Year's Eve. It was in a good location, close to the beach and many shops. It was set off the main streets, which made it very quiet. However, when it rained the road would get heavily flooded, making it difficult to safely leave the accommodation without the assistance of a taxi or motorbike. Apart from that, the room was clean and well-presented and the service was wonderful. Breakfast was basic but ample.
