“Perfect Place to stay in Bali - more than you expect!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The Aahh B&B is perfectly located near one of the finest beaches in Bali, Jimbaran (heavily recommended: a good mixture between tranquility and service offerings at the beach; best "all in all" beach we have seen on Bali). To reach the beach you can rent a bike for free and drive through the authentic streets of the small village of Jimbaran.

The accomodation is very nice and the rooms are very spacious. There is no lack of anything! The B&B has a nice pool, an outside and an inside shower, a fully equipped mini bar, an extra bed, a large screen TV, 3000 movies to rent for free, great breakfast (compared to breakfasts in Asia) with freshly baked patries. Best: There are no time limits on anything. That means: You can use the pool whenever you want to (even at 3am at night) and you can have breakfast whenever you wake up - not only until the kitchen closes!

But what is really best is the extremly services oriented attitude of the owners Bob & Lydia. They collect you themselves from the airport, they know where it's best to get money, they provide you a SIMcard for your mobile phone, they know great places to go, they rent their scooter for almost nothing, they provide you with great drivers, they know all the prices of the tour companies in Bali, ... all in all they make your stay most pleasant! We did not only save lots of money because of the hints of Bob & Lydia, but we also got to know great people like or driver Dewa! They even encourage guests to be friends and hang out together - so we did and made new friends in this holiday!

Thank you Bob & Lydia for the great time!

We recommend the Aahh B&B to anyone going to Bali, especially when starting the trip oder needing lots of advice/help. You will get much more than you expected!

(I am writing all this as someone who already stayed at some of the finest and most expensive hotels/resorts all over the world!! Bob & Lydia can beat them with their attitude!)

Aahh Bali is a quiet oasis! Bob and Lydia know how to treat their guests! Made to order breakfasts along with home made pastries. And the dinners were better than any restaurant. The host's local knowledge of Bali was superb to my guide book. Pool side relaxation complete with a waterfall! The movie room was perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach or shopping! The airport transport is excellent...cold water with a chilled towel! The first time I went to Bali I stayed in resorts which I found out do not offer the personal attention I received at Aahh Bali. I know where I'm staying when I return!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great...all have outdoor showers.

I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The B+B itself is tucked down a quiet alley off of Uluwatu II, which has you fairly close to the beach, shopping, dining and spas, but also it is very quiet and private. The property is and well maintained, with nice touches such as fresh flowers and a very nice pool. The rooms are large, have plenty of storage and outlets, a mini-bar, flat-screen (with over 1000 video’s to select from), a comfy memory foam topped bed and a spacious outdoor shower and bathroom area. Rooms are cleaned daily. The breakfasts are large and tasty, with great freshly baked items which are good enough to fill you up without ever getting to your main course! With all that being said, it is the service that sets Aahh apart from its competition and is the reason it is deserving of 5 starts. Bob and Lydia are simply the best hosts ever. Months before we arrived, Bob was helping me plan our trip and provided a ton of info that I used to help us enjoy our visit and save money. Upon our arrival, you are treated like a long lost friend in for a short visit. From Bob sending us off on their bicycles with directions to the spot with the coldest beers on Jimbaran Bay at JWB's Pizza (and he was so right!), to Lydia sewing up my wife’s daypack after she thought it was beyond repair, and the very special and very delicious birthday dinner she prepared for us (steamed clams, poached king prawn salad and super tender, slow cooked asian spiced baby back ribs with borccoli mashed potatoes) complete with a beautifully decorated birthday cake…what a way to spend our last night on Bali! They also invited us and another guest to join them in Uluwatu for sunset and later for a grilled seafood dinner on Jimbaran Bay at Tebe Mega, which was great fun.

It just seemed that nothing was too much for them. Bob was up in the middle of the night picking guests up at the airport, they would order out from local eateries and pick the food up for you if you wanted to eat in. They would send staff to change money for you or take care of your laundry, all at better rates than you could find on your own. They also have a live-in driver, who was made available to us so that we could take one last sunset stroll on the bay and not have to walk back in the dark.

A couple of tips:
*Make sure if you are using a driver not provided by Aahh, to have the address and phone number written down for him and have him call Aahh for more specific directions once in the area. It is tucked down an alley and there is no signage.
*JWB Pizza is a great little spot on the bay to people watch and enjoy and ice-cold Bintang. Their calamari is really good too.
*Tebe Mega is an excellent spot to enjoy the typical Jimbaran Bay seafood BBQ. Food is good and not over-priced, and you can walk over to JWB's and get the coldest beers on the bay to go along with it!
*Balique (on Uluwatu I, within walking distance of Aahh) is a great spot for a little more refined food. Real cool "plantation" like setting, good service, nice drinks (excellent white sangria), and fantastic food. The snapper entree we had was some of the best fish we have eaten in a long time. Not super cheap, but still a value for what you get.
*Maroon spa (short walk from Aahh) was recommented by Bob, and it was great. It looks like a simple beauty salon when you walk in, but it's a full service spa, and the Hair Cream treatment is to die for.

Do not hesitate to book at Aahh, you will not find anything better in the area.

Thank you again for everything Bob and Lydia!!

Room Tip: is a great little spot on the bay for a cold beer, and their calamarie is excellent. Tebe MJWB ega...

We have to thank Bob and his wife again for everything they have done for us..you gave us a great welcome to Bali! We will never forget how you had to go to the airport at 2 am for more than two times and still had a welcoming fresh towel for us in your van. The details make this guesthouse the best!

Our family of two adults and an almost-5-year-old had the pleasure of staying at Bob and Lydia's B&B for 4 nights in their deluxe room. We got good service even before we arrived in Bali, and Bob would reply my emails and answer my questions quite promptly. Bob gave us many good tips (especially regarding immigration stuff) that saved us a lot of time and headache. The Room A was perfect for us - plenty of space, a separate area and bed for the boy, and our breakfast table was just outside our door! It was interesting using the outdoor shower, but there was also an undercover shower and a bathtub (our boy refused to use the outdoor shower). Location-wise, it was near the Ayana where we attended a wedding, so it was convenient for us, and it was an easy taxi ride to the rest of the Jimbaran Bay area. Organising a driver through Bob was easy, and that is really the way to get around Bali. The food was amazing! Lydia makes fresh pastries every morning (she wakes up at 4am everyday!) and they are fabulous. In addition to pastries, we enjoyed fresh fruits and could choose breakfast items to be cooked to order (there are more details and photos of the breakfast at my blog: http://expatgourmand.blogspot.hk/2013/10/aahh-bali-bed-breakfast-jimbaran-bali.html). We also enjoyed Lydia's cooking for dinner one night, and the food was delicious! We had a really nice stay at this B&B, and we know where to stay when we come to Bali again!

I stayed in the B&B on April 2013 for 2 nights with my mother. Bob and Lydia were amazing hosts, and they instantly make you feel welcome! This B&B is not located a pristine beach or whatever, but if you pair it up with a cool driver such as Dewa, you know you wouldn't miss anything substantial. I am not a fan of beach-front resorts, so this place was perfect!

Aahh Bali is quiet. Lydia has cats so if you prefer to have no animals around, you should NOT be here. Take note that the cats are quiet and basically don't bother you. I can't say they're friendly though... just cats being cats.

The best thing about Aahh Bali would probably be their food. Breakfast is AMAZING. It's worth waking up early, I swear. Lydia prepares the most awesome pastries. You can even pack them away with you so you can have some munchies on the way to the temples. The temples are scattered all over Bali and it takes long drives to get there. Food is always welcome in Dewa's car.


The room we got was spacious for 2 people. We especially loved the outdoor bathroom. It was perfect for bathing under the moonlight. Outside, they have a small pool by the dinner area.

All in all, our stay was relaxing. I wish we could have stayed longer!
