“Wonderful combination of a boutique hotel with a cultural experience”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

What a find! This 4 roomed “guest house” is a collection of 4 self-contained units arranged around 2 sides of the perimeter of a traditional Indonesian family compound. (The photos give a better idea) Wayan has added studio-grade sound proofing so they may as well be completely detached. I actually said “wow” as we were shown our room, and again when I saw the bathroom with outdoor shower.

The important stuff:
Huge king size bed. Good mattress + clean linens
Powerful rain shower head
A choice of air conditioning and a central fan, situated in a traditional vaulted roof (again see pics)
Flat screen TV
Satellite TV + Dvd player with huge selection of DVDs
Fridge in room
Tea, Coffee + water on demand
Fast Wi-fi that works!
Classical Indonesian design.

The beach is just down the road and the sunsets are beyond breathtaking. Every evening people congregate to watch the sunset with a beer in hand or to meditate. There's a beach front hotel so you can sit there a sip a watermelon smoothy.

We ate at Cafe Canggu most nights as it was a 10 minute walk – quite dark on the road. We didn't get to Echo beach which is the next one up, but were told by other guests they have a beach front restaurant where you choose your fish from the day's catch and they cook it for you. Taxis are really cheap, so dining out for the evening is easy. Or hire a scooter.

Wayan and Kadek are a warm and lovely couple who will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It only took a day or so before I felt as though I was part of the family. Nothing is too much trouble - organising motorbike hire, a day tour to the sights of your choice with Wayan as your personal guide in his air-conditioned 4X4. It was the cultural experience for us, having a window into day to day Balinese family life

Warmth and professionalism sum up the experience. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Room Tip: I think they are all equally as good

I have stayed at Wayan's on three (3) separate occasions. I have also stayed at other hotels in the area (Legong Keraton). This is BY FAR, the best place to stay if you are in the Berewa Beach/Canggu area.

The accommodations are fabulous - clean, quiet, beautiful - and VERY reasonably priced. Perfect for the single-traveller OR the couple. You won't be disappointed.

Wayan's is about 100m from Berewa Beach, so it is great for surfers. Wayan's is very safe and comfortable, so it is great for the non-surfing spouse/partner as well.

Wayan himself is an incredible host - he can arrange tours, has moto-scooters for rent, can arrange taxis and is a wealth of information. He can also arrange pick-up/drop-off at the airport at ANY time for a very reasonable price.

Plus, he is a great guy and his family is super-nice.

HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended.....

Room Tip: Book early - There are four (4) rooms and the place is in high-demand due to the excellent value and...

This small family run hotel is a jewel. Tucked away off the street just 100 meters from the beach, it is an oasis of calm! The room was clean, spacious and well furnished. The air conditioning was good and there is excellent internet access. Wayan or a member of his family is always there to help with taxis or recommend a place to eat. Another bonus to this retreat is that it is walking distance along the beach to busier Seminyak.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room at the very end of the garden. It was quiet and private.

My wife and I stayed at Wyan's for a week. The rooms are comfortable, very clean, with aircon and hot water. Nice garden and outside seating area. The area is good for surfing and the yoga at Desa Seni is excellent. You can hire a bike directly from Wyan's and have it added to your bill. This is a good idea as it makes exploring the area very easy. Close by are some great places to eat with lots of healthy organic choices: Green, Ginger, The Bungelow, Eco Beach, Cafe Canggu and Beatle Nut. If you are looking for some peace away from the traffic and party scene of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak this area is perfect. Wyan's is a traditional style losmen yet it comes with Sony flat screen TV's with international channels and the fastest wifi connection that I've experienced in bali . We decided to return to Wyan's after a trip to Ubud. We will be back again some time soon.
