Very cute homestay. Lovely communal area. Good but basic breakfast. Free snorkelling gear was a great bonus! As was free water. Friendly and helpful staff who told us the best places to go on the island. Easy walk from the main restaurants/ bars etc. We were also able to do laundry here which was good for us.

We stayed 2 nights at Damai and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are clean and spacious for a very reasonable price. Our room even had open air bathroom which we really appreciated. Breakfast is good and the whole staff is friendly and helpful. You can rent snorkel equipment for free and go directly into the water, just 3 minutes... More

There are some really good things about Damai homestay - the peaceful location off the main road, the nearby beach where it is easy to see turtles, the friendly owner and the local info he gives you on arrival, the tasty breakfast (well-cooked eggs and real butter), the daily room service (a basic clean), and they are environmentally conscious -...

Damai is a very pleasant and quiet homestay located almost right on the beach (for me on one of the nicest part of the island and stretch of beach), ideal for a relaxing holiday in a tropical island. Bedrooms are very nicely decorated to Indonesian standards and what I am used so far and bed was very comfortable. Probably one... More

Decent place, but our room lacked privacy. We could hear people talking even when we were in our room, close to the kitchen. Owner was nice and friendly. We had a tough time locating this place. Decent breakfast and it's a 2 min walk from the beach.
