“Filthy rooms in the middle of nowhere - don't bother!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

The bungalows are in the middle of nowhere about ten minutes drive to Jimbaran Beaxh. You can't get anywhere without a scooter or taxi. The standard rooms are up a steep, stony hill a couple of minutes walk from reception. Our room was nice on the surface, but ipon closer inspection we noticed that it was FILTHY, with several kinds of faeces on the floor, bed and bedclothes. Our pillows got defecated on during the night and a strange yellow stain appeared at the end of the bed during the night. The roof is bamboo and obviously full of lizards and insects. We were supposed to stay two nights, but checked out after the first because we couldn't bear to sleep in the horrible room again.

Hello Emma,
Thank you for your honest last years report. My dearest apologies for your bad experience at Sunhill Bungalows.
The reason i am responding to you now is that the Hotel has changed management and name. We are now operating under Mandala Bali Bungalows with the mission to have all guests visiting to feel home away from home.
The Staff is trained to keep the place clean and tidy, the rooms have had a refreshing renovation and are now fitted with mosquito nets not allowing Balis wild life to interfere with a good nights sleep.

Mandala Bali wishing you a great start into the new year and perhaps on you next visit to Bali come by to enjoy one of our healthy juices in the Garden cafe, to see how the place is trasforming towards concious living grounds.
Kind regards
