I traveled alone to Bali. I wanted to discover a bit of Bali, check out the beaches, try local food , go on some tours, etc.
Well they don't call it the exile for nothing!
I had high expectations for this place. Specially when paying 400k! (major ripoff, fault to my ingenuity) I was planning to stay 4 nights there, I left after the first one.
First thing I thought to myself when I arrived to the island and was on my way to get to the place was ... -How am I going to go to the center later at night?
After that it felt weird that they played reggae all the time and that a particular smell was present all the time.
On that night I went by bicycle and with a borrowed flash light to the center, got there drenched in sweat. Didn't want to risk going back drunk so I went back early and lost one night!
Staff was nice.
200 meters from a beach front. Nice to relax (but then again it's an island...plenty of places to relax)
Bed and bath linen looked proper and clean.
Location is awful. Very far from the center. The path to "The exile" has no lights.
Bed was surrounded by bugs
Room has no AC (I didn't know the importance of this until this night), the fan helped just a bit
Room was small and dark, almost claustrophobic and didn't feel clean
Mosquito net was dirty on top, either dead insects or some droppings
The water from the open air bathroom faucet seemed to be salt water
The bamboo tube that served as a shower didn't look clean
The water coming out of the "shower" and faucet was a bit yellowish
I felt ripped of for paying 400k when other persons in other non AC rooms where paying under 100k!
I enjoy reggae music, but not all the time.
I was not looking to smoke mj
The place lost its charm and romance that I had in my mind. Major disappointment.
I wish I could get my money back.
Even though the staff seemed nice I would not recommend this place to anyone. Not at this rate.
I was on one of the front bungalows. The one on the right side of the bar.
