Balangan Sea View Bungalow
Ranked #27 of 119 Specialty Lodging in Jimbaran
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Stayed 2 nights at Balangan Sea View Bungalows. We stayed in the $60 bungalow which was perfect for a family of 4. The 2 kids slept upstairs while we had the bedroom and verandah downstairs. The kids thought it was fun walking through the cow paddocks at the back to get to the secluded beach. The swimming pool was great.

A quick scroll down through the reviews and pics here and I realise that the Balangan Sea View Bungalows has has a major facelift recently. It's not just bungalows now. There's a large 2 story block of fan rooms, and there are aircon rooms above the front restaurant.

If you're a confident surfer, Balangan Beach is a great place to be. The rooms are big and clean and are reasonably priced (RP325,000 in high season) for the quality. They come with towels and they're cleaned every day.

The bungalows, on the other hand, seem expensive. If you go to the guest house next-door they have (3) gorgeous round bungalows with private gardens and sitting areas at a similar price. The ones at Balangan Sea View are crowded around the pool.

If you're not a surfer, there's not much reason for you to be at Balangan Beach. It's not a very good swimming beach and it's miles from anywhere else. That means that the transportation guys just outside the door have a monopoly and will gouge you for any trip, and the food at Balangan Sea View Bungalow and the warungs on the beach is average quality, premium price, but you don't have much of a choice.

This isn't a bad place to stay if you want to be at Balangan Beach... but do you want to be at Balangan Beach?

Take enough cash to cover your expenses. They don't take cards and there's no ATM or money changer nearby.

Room Tip: Aircon rooms and bungalows don't seem as nice as the non-aircon ones.

If you are looking for an American resort-style vacation, stay at La Joya at Balangan Beach. Seaview is NOT the place for you. But if you are looking for a quiet, rustic, more cultural experience, This place is great. Downside: (1) You share a bungalow AND a bathroom ( one single room downstairs and a double room ( 2 twins) upstairs. I was the only female to share a BR with my fiance and 2 20 something males. AND no hot water (2) the bungalows are really "Huts" - thatched roof and seagrass walls - so if you are downstairs, your pillow is about 5 feet from the toilet behind the 'wall' and you can hear everything. (3) your walk to the beach consists of a 100 yard hike through a cow field, dodging cow patties. Upside: (1) you get to walk through a cow field and listen to the cows, while enjoying the most spectacular view in Bali (2) it is NOT filled with Americans, mostly australians & eurpeans (3) Almost every body ( male and female, old and young) has wash boards abs, as this is a surfing location and home of Kima Surf Camp. (4) you are in a rural area so there is plenty of walking, running, scootering that you can do with nature - no pushy chachki sellers, cheap food on the beach, easy ability to walk around the point to Dreamland at low tide. I would stay here again, but it is a bit like camping. We are 40 something executives that prefer a true experience on vacation. The guests were intelligent and well-traveled, there is a very nice outdoor dining area where folks congregate to share surf & travel stories, Kima Surf camp is an excellent host if you want a place to stay and a surf guide or lessons ( must sign up with them separately). And most importantly, Balangan beach has not yet been taken over by the resorts.

Room Tip: Email or call and MAKE SURE that there will be no other guests in your bungalow. The indonesian way...

Steyed there for 5 nights during April 2011:
+ Nice view
+ Very good surf sport 10mn by walk (down the cliff, easy way)
+ Reasonable pricing if free (good a cpl. bungalow by my own for 40 USD)
+ Tsunami Safe :)
+ Good breakfast & Dinner for reasonable pricing
+ Friendly staff

--- Wanted to stay there again a week later then the chief told me: "We never made this pricing you said.."
- Far away from everthing, small Supermarket 2min with motorcycle, ATM 10 min.

By the way; They have electricity, lights and fan. Toilets are behind each bungalow - Must like this...

Direct access to the beach.
Nice swimming pool!

The resort is in a good spot, lovely views. The pool is nice and clean and deep and gardens pretty. We ate here and food was ok and service quite fast.
The bungalows are very rustic and I must admit I could not sleep well there as it is very basic, thatched bungalow style with mozzie nets and dim lighting. Loved the days there but found the nights stressful.
Had an Indonesian guy come into the resort one night yelling help, help, no security about, finally a German tourist when to assist and the guy wanted 200,000 rupeah to leave !! Reported the next day and heard others doing the same but they did not seem to understand !
Was glad to get back to Sanur but missed the beautiful beach and tranquility out there.
Mind you the price is very reasonable so you get what you pay for.

The location if you are a surfer is great. Beach is nearby. Bungalows are too close together so there is little privacy. Restaurant is ok not great not bad.
Staff is not exactly friendly but they do their job. In all an ok experience. Wouldn't go back, but had a pleasant time.
