“Don't stay in Balangan!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The hotel is VERY isolated. Although you can access a pretty beach from the hotel you are completely cut off from everything else. No choice but to get scooters or overpriced taxis to get to the other great surrounding areas (jimbaran, uluwatu temple) the beach is pretty but sea only good if you surf - NOT a swimmers places at all. Beach restaurants are all the same and average.

Hotel itself is hugely overpriced for what you get - rooms are very basic and no hot water or door on bathroom! A thin sheet is not adequate on the bed.

Not worth coming here unless you surf as there are more beautiful places in Bali. It is nice that it is a quiet area but again can get that in much better places.

This place is a little ripper!
Perched above the hidden gem that is Balangan Beach.
Yeah, it's a bit far from everything else on the peninsula - but for the best!
Unlike other reviews I just saw on here - I think the staff are lovely and helpful.
Everything we have asked for has been delivered that minute and they are more than happy to help with transport etc.
Easy to hire scooters too.
Our room is cleaned every day, we have ocean views, a lovely pool and a short stroll down the hill to a wonderful white sand beach - we certainly can't complain!
Will stay here again and recommend to friends in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We went with Superior AC - loving it!

Was there for 4 days, i live in Jakarta so i go to Bali every 2 or 3 weeks, either working or surfing. My wife likes Balangan so we stayed here. The staff is not very nice and one day one of the clients went down to ask, for the 3rd day in a row, to take a rat from her room. And also to change the sheets (she looked like she woukd be there for already a week or so). This was during breakfast and the manager started screaming to her that if she did not have money to go to very expensive places she should not complain and woukd not be welcome in Bali again. All of this in front of many guests who were having breakfast.... Rooms are hot, toilet is disgusting and not clean... Will not go back!!!!

Room Tip: Seems like the bungallows in front of the pool are better then the room on the top where i stayed

The place is nice and quiet. We choose this hotel because we want some private and fresh air place where no many tourists come there. We really like the place. It is lovely. The staff was being so helpful and friendly to us. They are polite and modest and will treat us better when we also show them some respect. We emailed for booked the room and pay them on arrival. They don't have credit card service. We were choosing room with AC because the weather was hot. we spent time here for 5 days and we enjoyed every moment. We can go to beach by walk anytime we want. There are few things that bugging us such as dirty and smelly toilet, bad smell in the air around the hotel room and expensive price for the food. I guess the hotel price is average. You will spend more money for transportation and food.

Room Tip: choose room with AC only.

The place is nice, it's got a pool, a pool table, the rooms are big enough but not having hot water is a downside.

The food is nothing fantastic, and you can find better in the sorrounding places.

The location is great! Close enough to the beach which makes a morning surf a lot easier.

P.S: Just stayed here for 2 night though... After that we decided to move into a warung right on the beach for less than half the price!

been here several times for relaxing. they have great view. lovely place. but the staff has to learn how to smile at guests. because the hospitality of this Hotel was lack of smile. so don't be surprised if you stay at this hotel and they abit unfriendly.

overall i love the amazing view. the food and prices are average.

We had been travelling very expensive countries for some months and this was our first hotel in a affordable country. So this helps maybe putting things in perspective. For us, this hitel was heaven. Beautifull rooms, nice swimmingpool, nice garden, freindly guests. Maybe the staff wasn't the most charming, but they weren't unfriendly either. Food was good, service was fast. We were off season, so had a good bargain... Still, we loved it!
