Gajah Mina is an exclusive Bali holiday destination on the picturesque South West coast of Bali, not far from the renowned Tanah Lot temple in Tabanan. An intimate boutique hotel of ten independent vacation villas nestled among tropical gardens and scenic rice paddies.Gajah Mina overlooks its own private beach carved into the volcanic rock. The setting is spectacular, natural caves and ancient stone carvings offering romantic walks across adjacent cliff top, headlands, rice paddies, coconut groves and deserted beaches. It is the perfect place for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.Each villa discreetly nestles within its own walled garden offering view across rice paddies, palm fringed gardens and the rugged Balian beach coastline. Private terraces invite you to lounge amidst the clouds and the crown of palm.Tucked in between rice fields, the 27 meters long pool is built around the shape of a rice terrace.A stroll toward the ocean lead to a small cape covered with thick alang - alang grasses, ending on a cliff from where view extend towards both end of the island. One of Gajah mina two headlands is maintained as a protected area for the Water Monitor, a timid unaggressive lizard which can grow to 1.7m in length. You can make wonderful walks on the 30 km long deserted beach.

I'm reluctant to write this review because Gajah Mina is the most delightful place I've ever stayed in. It has sprawling grounds with dramatic scenery in every direction, well-appointed, well-spaced rooms for a sense of privacy, and a large elegantly curved pool. The central restaurant has outdoor seating in lovely setting and serves fresh, organic food. They also make their own bread and ice cream - and the staff are delightfully warm and friendly. Pictures do not show the real beauty of this magnificent resort. I expected it to be expensive, but it's an absolute bargain. I'll certainly come here again. And if I can't get a room because it's booked out, I'll rue the day I wrote this review.

We had lunch at Secret Bay after receiving multiple recommendations from people at our hotel. We sat inside due to the wind, but the restaurant was spacious and clean and the staff were very attentive. We shared the whole red snapper and vegetables. It took a while for the food to come, but it was worth it. Beautiful view of Secret Bay beach. Very reasonable prices and they also serve pizza. The menu offers a wide variety of food.

Fantastic place. Stayed in the honeymoon suite, incredible view and room. Secret Bay has the best food in balian. Competitive prices too. Staff was great. Had a couple minor room issues(always happens) staff came within 30 minutes and resolved issues. Highly recommend the wonderful place.

I got recommended to go to this restaurant, and now I see why. It’s set overlooking “secret bay” and a short walk to views to Balian as well as a huge deserted beach. Food was delicious and cheap (I had fried noodles with seafood for $6Aud), and staff were lovely, if a little slow seeing as I was the only person there. Pity I found this place on my last day in Balian, or I’d be back to sample more of their menu for sure!

Lovely location but the food a real disappointment. Although it claims to be a seafood restaurant with daily specials, everything is frozen (as acknowledged by the staff). We tried a few dishes but the curries were like spiced water, the chicken was boney and gristley and the prawn dish was pathetic with only four small prawns in it. The service was mixed - the ladies were really good but one of the two men was as miserable as sin. Given it is twice the price of everywhere else in Balian Beach, I’d suggest you go anywhere else.

Be aware that the two bedroom Ocean View bungalow is actually two separate buildings some distance apart. When this was raised with management they would not budge on moving us or refunding us 50% as we did not use one of the bungalows at all. We were initially offered a much smaller room but would have to move to the room we booked part way through anyway. After notifying management that we were cutting our stay two nights short we were offered the Honey Moon Suite, we had already booked elsewhere. This place has potential, staff need more training as male waiter is quite indifferent bordering on rude. Restaurant here is average. Is only a short walk to other restaurants. Balian itself is a beautiful out of the hustle n bustle place to stay, particular if you want to surf or are into Yoga. Gajah Mina in my view is not quite up to standard. Pic denotes distance between two rooms.

I went to Gajah Mina on a recommendation from a friend, they promised me that I’d find a tranquil paradise. This resort was the perfect holiday for my two children and myself. We hired a three bedroom Villa with a infinity pool, stereo, fridge and lounge/dinning area. The grounds were beautiful and we spent most evenings walking around the resort to their cliffs lookout to watch the sunset or walking on the private beach. The food at the restaurant was amazing, everyday they had a new special board with a variety of choices from lamb shanks too lobster. We actually never left the resort much at all and enjoyed drinks watching the sunset from the restaurant or have a wine in our Villa pool. I will be back again soon with the entire family. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the hotel for making my family very welcome.

Our group spent here 10 wonderful days relaxing, enjoying the massages in the spa and immersing ourselves in the beautiful nature around. Gajah Mina is located on a stunning property, far away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas of Bali. The villas were lovely and comfortable and situated far enough from each other so that you never feel disturbed by others. You won't find useless "luxury" items here such as flat-screen TVs etc., but instead the nature-lover's real luxury like private beach, large beautifully planted gardens and seclusion. The restaurant directly overlooks the private bay, it's a delight to hang out here. The tofu-tempeh brochette and the coconut cheesecake are a must. The breakfast is ample with good Bali coffee and very nice French-style fruit pancakes.

I was there with some friends couple of days ago in the restaurant , the place is amazing and beautiful, nice atmosphere , and the food is ok, but all went ruin with the male waiter , he was really unpolite, and angry to us when my wife was asking him to wait to make the order. i hope the management team do something about this very soon , becuase they are loosing a lot of coustomers due to this behaviour. for the rest everything was fine.

Beautiful in all respects - the location, the views, the pool, the food, the massage hut, and especially the staff. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the honeymoon suites, overlooking Balian beach and the surf break, with Secret Bay immediately behind us. What an amazing location! The grounds are huge when considering Gajah Mina has just 12 rooms - fantastic separation between the rooms, restaurant, swimming pool etc. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the rooms well maintained. A gem!
