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.
