“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Ckean tidy, close to beach and shops. Great food, ran by a family who were also very helpful. Christian took if to a local waterfall and through the rice fields, a nice day out. Surf was easy to walk to and was a nice left hand reef break

It was nice staying at losmen P.B. The location is great, very close to the middle of Krui but still in a quiet place just near the beach and right in the middle of all the surf breaks with 2 reefs just 100m from our room, and the peak just down the street.
Losmen Palm Beach is small and quiet with a home stay feel and without the crowds of people outside your room like you find at other losmen.
The rooms are basic but clean with fans and we were looked after well by christian and his family there.
will be back for sure.

We were glad to find a clean and quiet place after a hard ride to go to Krui. The rooms are actually very basic. A clean and comfortable double bed and a fan - thats it. But finaly there was no lack at all. All we asked for - we received it. Christian and Yuli, who run the losmen are a very friendly couple. We shared a very intimate atmosphere not to compare to indonesian hotels. The food was excellent. Fresh fish, extremly tasty. Vegetables, plants and leaves we never heard about before. Christian will help you going around and gives you tips also about the very special indonesian way of life.
The sunsets are sensational (see photo) and we recommend the "black beach" behind the harbour. it`s worth the way, because the beach in front of the losmen is untidy and full of sharp pieces of glass.
Beware: in march 2012 there was no ATM, bank or moneychanger in Krui. Look for cash, before you enter Krui.

I have been in this place in 2006 when I met Christian and Yuli by accident on the market. I was surprised that a compatriot from the same hometown is living here off the beaten track. Straight I moved to their home and enjoyed their delicious food and drinks. Situated along the beach, it is a good place for swimming, surfing, relaxing and watching sunsets. Day trips to other beaches, waterfalls or the nearby Barisan National Park by motorbike I recommend. Christian and Yuli are excellent guides to get a better view of local, coastal, farmer's n fisherman's life. I will go back there next year...

For surfing it is perfectly situated near the Krui Beach and to any other location you can rent a motorbike. Ask for a moto by the same Hotel, you would get a much better motorbike here than at the places around. Palmbeach Krui has some quite luxurious bungalows for a very reasonable price. The staff and family which is always taking care helped and assisted us in any kind. We are really happy getting to know Christian and Yuli, the owners of the Losmen. They gave us an experience based and delightful insight into the indonesian culture. So far, thanks a lot, we had a beautiful time!

Great spot by the beach (50meters), fantastic hospitality, I have decided to rate the rooms are average only because the accomodation is by definition a 'Losmen' Indonesian for somewhat of an Inn/Hostel. You will not find a full-size toilet or over-head shower which is normal for where you will be travelling.

About the room, expect a clean 'Twin' or Double bed setup, wall-mounted Fan's and private bathroom area!

A small basic Internet cafe is setup right out the front of Losmen Palmbeach.

The family here are all too accomodating to your every need, from chilling beer's down to extra cold, to whipping up a lovely Nasi Goreng in the kitchen for us on request when asked or preparing a fresh Coconut out of their tree. Nothing seemed too much for them.

Rent a cheap scooter from Losmen Palmbeach to take advantage of exploring the local coastal roads and nearby Waterfalls.

Room Tip: Taxi or scooter from Krui's main bus stop should be less than 10,000 Rupiah's. It is very cl...

Losmen Palmbeach in Krui is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Yuli and Christian make you feel at home and are there for any questions that come up. It´s also very quiet and the rooms are very clean and moderatly priced - in other words: very good price-value.
Over all the food that Yuli cooks is far better than in any restaurant or warung I have eaten in Krui. Christian is originally from Germany/Berlin and knows a lot of the indonesian culture.
I can only recommend this very great Losmen!
