Pondok Pisang
Reviewed May 30, 2009

Nothing posh, not glam, no spa, just peaceful and calm. Run by an Austrian expat lady who has been here for decades, Pondok Pisang is the perfect place to chillout, read, do yoga, swim and surprise, use the free, fast internet! I came here with a group who were using the yoga/dance barn and stayed on for many days catching up with myself. IT's cool by the sea and there's a tiny private beach . not postcard idyllic but great for a refreshing, safe dip. Ferries for the Gili Islands leave from nearby port Padang Bai so it's a good stopover for there too. I marked it down a bit for cleanliness not just because the rooms are not serviced daily... actually I like that and usually refuse daily cleaning... but because there are a few resident dogs around who do leave some traces on the lawns. But the bungalows are private and airy and the beds clean and comfortable. The dining area has books in German and English. I'm writing from my deck with the sound of waves and birds.. just about to go for another simple but fresh, generous lunch.

If you are looking for somewhere beautiful, quiet, tranquil and delightful away from everything, you just found it. If you are not then try somewhere else. This little collection of beautiful houses on the sea front, by a very private little beach overlooking the bay towards Lombok, just south of the awful Candidasa, is an absolute delight. The houses have wonderful character , and beautiful features, such as the mosaic shower in our house, but reasonably civilised living, away from eveything. The gardens are wonderful. The food is mainly vegetarian and great, the staff are lovely, they make clothes here for the owners shops. The cost is very reasonable. The clients are mainly Bali based expats or people in the know, and there are yoga facilities with a barn looking out over the sea, but no regular classes. Bring your own belts and mats. I really loved it here, and left feeling totally recharged. You need a car to enjoy it properly, as it is 2k fom anywhere, but well worth the effort.
