I stayed here for a couple of nights over my birthday. Was with a guy I was dating at the time, and the place and staff were definitely gay-friendly. We managed to stay in villa 208, all the way at the end of the path skirting the rice paddy. The villa exceeded my expectations in every way--from cleanliness to comfort and other amenities (an MP3 player, so cool!). With great light, high ceilings, a porch, and a full kitchen, the value for money was extremely high. The pool's even fun. I was really impressed, especially at USD 60 (IDR 550K) per night. The hotel rooms are even less expensive, but splurge and get the villa if available.
It's worth renting a motorbike from the joint next door in order to get in and out of town. Some people may want to be near or right on the beach, but I was totally content to retreat a few kilometers inland each night, making The Studio a perfect option.More
