In 2010, our family opened Bara Beach Bungalows at the far end of Bara Beach. We couldn’t wait to share this beautiful place with other travellers in the hopes that they fall in love with Bira the way that we did. Our Beachfront Bungalow and Restaurant overlook the clear blue waters of Flores Sea. Each Bungalow comes with an ensuite bathroom and private terrace with a garden view. Here at Bara Beach Bungalows we offer free on-site parking and have a couple of scooters to rent for those who like to explore. Our team continuously looks forward to welcoming guests and friends from around the world.

Our flights got canceled 1 day before the booking and i informed straight away the hotel manager named Jenna via agoda mail and proof of cancelation. Also i called the property and talked with the receptionist Mina, she couldn't do much and refered to agoda. Calling agoda for 40 min they tried the best to support me by contacting this property, but this ignorant manager claimed even that she didn't received a proof. Obviosuly the booking was not refunded and also not re-scheduled. On a long weekend where this was the last room and demand was high. Really bad service and non-cooperative. Just business oriented. Sad.

Stayed here for 2 days in September. The bungalow is nice, spacious and clean. Except that they don't have TV but they will provide you varieties of DVD. But hey, who need to watch TV while you can enjoy a wide soft white sandy beach exactly im front of your door? They have small restaurant that serve well breakfast, lunch and dinner. Take the boat and sail to Liukang Island and Kambing Island for snorkelling. The water is crystal clear! Fishes and corals are stunning. Very pretty! Late afternoon, we just sit at the sandy beach, watching the sunset, sooo solemn. At nite, look above and see the stars. The staffs also ver helpful. I need to checkout early in the morning, and they prepare a box of breakfast for us. I really recommen this place. The only thing that needs to be fixed is the access, because the road is totally damaged to enter the Bara Beach.

I stayed there for almost 10 days with friends, we rented 3 of the bungalows and they are all very spacious and comfortable, with everything that you could need. The food was also very good, I highly recommend the honey chicken! The location is the best, Bara beach is amazing. And finally the staff was super friendly and very caring.

I stayed here for a week with friends and couldn't be happier. Our whole group of 6 has travelled a lot through Indonesia and could all agree that the rooms were amazing value for money. Very spacious, efficient air con and good hot shower and only 20m from the beach. Also, having a fridge in the room was super convenient. Great food in the restaurant, both Indonesian food and European food. The staff are super friendly and eager to help at any time, without being overbearing. The owners and their staff were also really helpful with information about transfers, scooter hire and recommendations for local activities (the scuba diving in Bira is great). The restaurant area was a lovely place to chill with a book or get some work done on the wifi (which was very good by Indonesian standards) with a beautiful view of a quiet beach.

After a dreadful experience with a speed boat to the Gili Islands (off Lombok) in 2013 we wanted somewhere of similar "tropical white sands/water quality" without a boat transfer. Bara Beach Bungalows ticked all the boxes. Just 9 chalets, fabulous views out to sea, perched just at the back of the beach, excellent service and quite adequate menus with sensibly priced beers. Plenty of scope for quality snorkeling in the area.

This is truly a paradise "away from it all" destination! Such delicious food in the airy beach view restaurant it is impossible not to overeat. Friendly staff, not intrusive but always ready to help with anything. Bara Beach Bungalows is comfortable but not too fancy and combines hospitality and convenience with a quiet escape. Expect to create your own entertainment but most of all, relax. Hot water, airconditioning and wi-fi available for those who want it, a touch of luxury at the end of a hot day in this remote place where others live very simply. When you look up at the vaulted wooden ceilings you know the loving care that went into creating this place. We loved it!

Bara Beach, located right in front of the bungalow, you can enjoy your meal while looking at the beautiful beach. Bara bungalows have 10 rooms, clean and tidy, they have a small restaurant, but the service is not 24 hours, if you are lucky you can see a group of brown monkeys coming down from the forest in front of the bungalow. This bungalow is suitable for those who want peace and enjoy the beach all day.
