“More than value for money, a true experience of the balinese sense of hospitality !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

From the very first minute of our arrival at Bubu Racok first house, we coule feel something different. Located on a beach not too busy, the place is peaceful. Wayan, the owner is taking care of you all along your stay with kind intentions: delicious breakfast well decorated with flowers, grilling a fresh fish for you on the beach and preparing typical balinese side dishes, recommanding you snorkeling places (his giant aquarium in front of his guesthouse !), negotiating snorkeling equipments at local price for you, proposing you to embark on a jukong with a fisherman to see the sunrise etc... last but not least the place is very clean, each of the 2 rooms are équipier with AC an possess terrasses that display a nice view on the beach and Mont Agung. It is was our best experience of guest house in Bali and we will never forget it especially Wayan !

We stayed at Bubu Racok for 3 nights in June. All I can say is that this is an amazing place! It was definitely a highlight of our Bali trip. The breakfasts are phenomenal, the room is spacious and clean (we had the lower floor room, great access to the beach) and the location is prime for snorkeling and scuba diving - however, the highlight of Bubu Racok is the owner, Wayan. We were new to snorkeling and he took us to the best sites just off the beach (we saw a sea turtle!). He helped us arrange a bike tour, told us lots about the life of the town and of East Bali, and made us an outstanding supper on our last night with freshly caught mackerel. I just can't say enough about how great this place is - definitely recommend for anyone wanting to relax and see East Bali!

Room Tip: We were on the bottom floor and it was fabulous, great access to the beach and a perfect porch for e...

Staying at Bubu Racok in Amed was a highlight of my life. Amed is largely untouched by tourism in Bali, and staying at Bubu Racok was such a memorable, serene, relaxing experience. Wayan, the host at Bubu Racok, was so accommodating and friendly! He went above and beyond in every regard, making a delicious breakfast every morning, taking us snorkelling in his back yard, and treating us to an amazing dinner (fish that he caught himself). Amed is a quiet fishing village at the base of a volcano, where people largely go about their lives fishing. It is a peaceful change of pace from busy centres like Ubud or Denpasar. You must drop by Amed if you're visiting Bali, and if you do STAY AT BUBU RACOK! I can't recommend it enough. The room is clean, has AC and great plumbing...and now I'm just ranting and raving here...

Go to Bubu Racok NOW! Staying at Bubu Racok is a religious experience!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the bottom floor, which was awesome. Our view of the beach, sunset, sunrise was astound...

We loved Amed!!!! Great for relaxing, snorkling, the view on the vulcano, trips to Tirtangangga the Gili Islands,...

Bubu Racok is a great place to stay! The rooms have AC and WIFI and they are very clean. You will find flowers everywhere (on the bed, the breakfast,...). The view is amazing (the sea and the vulcano). On the first flour you have a little bit more privacy, but on the ground flour you can almost walk into the sea!!!

We loved Wayan! You can ask him anything (finding a scooter, arranging a fastboat,...).

Thanks Wayan,

If you're looking for a beautiful view of the Agung mountain, a coast with waters that outreach the horizon and the best banana pancakes in Asia; then look no further that Bubu Racok. In our very clean and spacious upstairs bedroom we couldn't of ask for anything else but Wayan and his wife go above and beyond to supply you with snorkeling gear, knowledge of the sea, cooked fish from the morning catch, extra fruit and transport. All in all the best accommodation in our 5 months of traveling. Thank you so much for some great memories :)
