“Dream holiday location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

It's brand new, beautifully designed and everything has been thought of. From the cushions on the bungalow porch, to the lamp on the side of the bed so you can reach it from inside the mosquito net. The pool is lovely and showering outside in the hot water is amazing.

It feels traditional but with everything you need on a modern trip - you can even charge your whilst lazing on the bungalow porch.

Gede and the whole team are great, nothing is too much trouble.

Very close to some amazing surf and a v nice restaurant with lots of veggie food.

We had the most wonderful stay at Calmtree. The owner, Gede, was incredibly helpful organising scooters, surf lessons and recommending restaurants.

The Bungalows are beautiful and spacious but with first rate bathroom/shower facilities (Hot water) and brand new comfortable beds and pillows.

The Calm Tree is in a quiet beautiful spot in Rice Patty fields, an easy walk to a few little great cafes, (and a great patisserie) laundry and massage services available nearby as well as a walkable distance to the beach.

I couldn't have been more impressed with the facilities, staff, cleanliness and overall vibe of Calmtree. perfect for groups (we were a group of 4) or romantic couples trips. I will be back soon!

Was told by a friend , a new place had just opened up . I was looking for a place to stay, that was different , and this absolutely was it.Great location close to surf , 1minute on scooter to worldclass breaks , Old Mans, Echo Beach , Tugu. Right behind amazing Beetlenut Restaurant, that has the most amazing mix of fresh food and drinks , not forgetting the really large section of in house breakfast items they include, to fill the biggest stomachs!
Thoughtful touches , like reading lights in rooms , cool mix of traditional structures , along with young owners cool, hip touches , like vivid blues and greens in bathroom ,relaxing wet edge pool area, provide a great combination of old and new.

Owner , Gede, is amazingly friendly , and what he doesn't know or cannot provide , is more than made up by his enthusiasm to solve any request or problem , that comes along.

Recommend it to all , who are looking for great value , very friendly service, new place ,traditional style place to base your selves out in the Canggu area.

The Calmtree Bungalows is probably the best Canggu option for surfers who are on a budget. When I first set foot into this beautifully arranged place I knew this is where I wanted to stay. The superb cottages are circling the pool which results in a nice community feeling. The rooms have top notch matresses and a big ensuite outdoor bathroom with cold and hot shower. Each Bungalow has a little terrasse where you can relax on a small daybed. The rooms have no AC but a fan and good mosquito nets so you don't have to leave the comfort zone at Calmtree Bungalows.

Gede, the owner, offers you the charm of a homestay. Always a smile on his face he took care of all my questions right away (when I asked for a rental scooter it took 5 min and the ride was there).

Breakfast is yummie and within 1-10min you have stunning little restaurants with local and western food (Betelnut Café is 50m away). In June the best spa in town (Golddust) will move right next door. The best surf breaks are closeby, Echo Beach e.g. is just 5min scooter ride away. Gede is a known local surfer (who used to work for years as a surf instructor) so he will be happy to hook you up with experienced and reliable locals for your surf sessions.

Seminyak is around 20min and Ubud around an hour by scooter away from Canggu so the Calmtree Bungalows are also a good base for exploring Bali.

My partner and I stumbled upon the bungalows before they had officially opened. We had been in search of a villa to share with friends but they were either super expensive or a dingy backpacker room. Calmtree was the perfect inbetween. A beautiful accomodation at affordable prices.

The bungalows are made of beautiful wood and the bed was comfier than my bed at home. You can tell Gede the owner has put a lot of thought into the design. The pool in the middle of the bungalows is perfect for a dip when you get too hot.

Gede and his team are so unbelievably friendly and helpful. They helped us organise scooters, surf lessons and even baked my partner a birthday cake for his birthday!

The rooms are cleaned every day and you have a safe in your room. Breakfast is also included and you have a choice of lots of different dishes.

We stayed 10 days and could have stayed here another 3 weeks if our plans had allowed us to.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough for surfers wanting to be close to Batubulong and Echo beach and it is also great for non surfers!
