“A good place far away from anything!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We like it, but please bring cash with you the closest ATM is 20 minutes away by taxi and very few places take cc. Going up and down the beach is a challenge if you don't rent a motorbike. There was not enough light in the room!
Everything else was nice.
I want to address the breakfast issue: it is true that the continental is small but for a few dollars you can add a good omelet that solve all problems (pancakes are bad)

Beautiful and relaxed environment. Friendly staff and very clean bungalows. Traveling with a 10 month old, this was an ideal place to relax and unwind... The staff absolutely love kids!
We Will definitely be back and recommend it to others.

We stayed three nights in Bungalows 2 and were very pleased.
The pool are is clean and the loungers comfortable. The gardens are beautifully maintained. The rooms are very rustique but clean and well looked after - we were never sure how they did it but our bed was made and bathroom cleaned everytime on our return from breakfast. The food was truly excellent, especially considering the price and the service was lovely.
All in all, an excellent little base to explore the local beaches, there were a lot of families with young children but this really doesn't bother us (being teachers) so we would recommend this resort to anyone.

My friends and I decided to stay at Flower Bud Bungalows for 2 nights during our recent trip to Bali. Though I have stayed on the Uluwatu Peninsula many times, this was my first time at Balangan Beach. We were very pleased with Flower Bud and what it had to offer.

We were given the Jepun Bungalow, which slept 4 people. The bungalow had a nice outdoor deck with seating. It was open air and had a very rustic feel. The bungalow had 2 levels and was small for 4 people, but unique. There was a double bed upstairs and one downstairs, along with an outdoor bathroom.

We liked how each unit was unique and unlike the others. We also enjoyed the common areas, like the pool, tables, restaurant, and massage area. I think it would be a lot of fun for children to stay here. The beach was a quick walk from the grounds. The staff was friendly and helpful, but also gave you privacy. You can arrange for many activities and taxis at the restaurant.

We arranged for a taxi to Uluwatu Temple and a few other places around Jimbaran. Since Flower Bud is quite remote and in a natural surrounding, I would recommend having a car or motorbike. However, the staff did a nice job arranging everything for us too.

The food was decent, but a bit expensive. The massage services were good. We really enjoyed the overall atmpshere of Flower Bud. It is a place for people who enjoy the outdoors and basic amenities.

Just had three nights at beautiful balangan beach..what afind!
Stayed at flower bud bungalows 1 and was everything was expecting. Great for adventurous families who fancy staying in tree like bungalows. Very rustic with cold water pipe shower under the stars. Beautiful pool and friendly staff. Good value for money conveniently located and a fun start to our holiday.

Room Tip: Choose bigger bungalows at front if you have family

We ended up here even if it was slightly expensive for our budget (46$/night) but for one night it was worth it. Never saw such a pretty bungalow, super comfy, cold water shower in the back with the toilet, comfy bed with net, wardrobe, sofas on the patio outside. They even provide mosquito repellent.
The pool was nice as well, and the place is at a short walk from the beach. We stayed at FlowerBud 2, which they say it's a lot nicer and quieter than number 1.
The food was nice as well and portions were quite reasonable, even if - I repeat myself - a little bit expensive.
The staff was very nice and helpful and they even have an open air SPA right next to the pool.
Balangan Beach is very nice, try to walk to the southern side where there is a small beach in between the small cliffs. Beautiful - but be aware: not a place for swimmers!
Inexperienced surfers can enjoy staring at the better performers out in the waves... waiting for the sunset!
Definitely worth to come here for a couple of days to relax instead of wasting time in the horrible capital of consumerism named Kuta...!

When we first came to Balangan six years ago we stayed at Flowerbud 1 (there was no Flowerbud 2 then). We loved it and were really happy when our travel plans included a trip back to Bali so we could once again stay at Flowerbud. What a mistake. Expansion has not been good for Flowerbud. The prices have really increased - for both food and accommodation - and the staff has gotten downright rude. The food was overpriced for the small tasteless portions.

Balangan itself is much more built up now with many, many bungalows and hotels to choose from and Flowerbud was mostly empty while we were there (July - high season) but the area itself was really busy. The staff at Flowerbud tried to get more money every time we got near them and we ended up paying 10$ per night more for the room than we were quoted. We should have just walked away at checkin.

There are many, many other better, more reasonably priced options with better facilities now at Balangan. Flowerbud has no sea view, no hot water, no A/C, no TV and the continental breakfast consists of two or three pieces of fruit and one small piece of toast (cut in three pieces to make it look like more!)

Needless to say, we won't be coming back to Flowebud again.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!
