We found Kebun Impian on Tripadvisor, and were very impressed by the reviews and the website. When we booked our bike tour with East Bali Bike, they told us their trip ends often at Kebun Impian for a swim and lunch. This was an easy way for us to see the resort for ourselves, without really staying there.
When we arrived, our kids were already in the pool, they were a bit tired of the bike tour, and the staff already took them to Kebun Impian.
John was very friendly, showed us around, and we could have a swim, waiting for our lunch.
Lunch was delicious, with a fabulous view at the sea and the beach.
The toilets and the little house near the beach were not very clean, which was a disappointment for us. If they improve this, it is certainly a paradise in East Bali.

You scoop your own live fish out of the pond, they gut and clean the fish for you and barbecue it using coconut husks for fuel which adds a smoky delicious taste to this meal.

Room Tip: Try the master bedroom or the room by the sea.

This is now the second time that I have stayed at Kebun Impian. The first trip was more for business in the area, but the second was for pleasure. I can totally recommend a stay with, whether it is overnight or for a week, John and Wayan go out of their way to make you feel part of the family and not guests. The food is fantastic, the view from the Bale overlooking the ocean is fantastic. It is a true joy to stay there and I look forward to going back there soon.

From the minute we arrived we felt more than welcome. Wayan and John will do their best to make you feel at home away from home. The home stay breaths the tranquillity and beauty of the authentic east of Bali.

You can arrange all your activities with the owners and although there is no other option in the direct area of the home stay the prices are fair.

Also the food is very good. You have though try Wayan's fish specialities, they are the best.

The Kebun Impian was the ideal place to spend our last days of our holiday! A great place to relax and enjoy. And as Wayan and John say: You arrive as guests but leave as friends!

If we ever return to Bali, We will return to this little heaven on earth!

We stayed at Kebun Impian with three adults and two small children and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is run by an Australian-Balinese couple, and they are very warm and friendly.The place and the rooms where actually more beautiful compared to the images we saw on the website (we booked our rooms prior to our arrival). The meals, which are all prepared fresh, are very delicious. What we really loved is the beach, the sand is deep black and fine with beautiful stones, the kids enjoyed to play there. The sea is often too rough for swimming, but it is a very special and exciting location. The bungalow style rooms are nicely done and clean. There are bungalows directly facing the sea, and two or three are set behind the kitchen and main house, closer to the street. If you book ahead, maybe it is advisable to ask for a bungalow close to the beach. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our time there, and hope to come back.

Have stayed in this 'Homestay' last weekend. We were actually going to Amed, but the rain made us stop for lunch and this was the last place to stop before the alternative route to Amed. It was a lucky coincidence that this place was so beautiful and cosy. The lunch was lovely and the owners and staff make you feel at home. If you just want to eat at Kebun Impian they also offer you the use of their swimmingpool:-) After some hours we decided we wanted to stay at this lovely place and were able to knock of some of the price.

And for only Rp 250.000 the rooms were the best we had on Bali so far. The area is quiet and not touristic. The tropical garden, swimming pool overlooking the ocean and almost private black sand beach makes the picture complete. The owners motto is: 'arrive as guets. leave as friends'. They succeed, the kitchen and living room is open, and staff and guests talk easily together.

So all in all we would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay at one of Balis most idyllic places.

Travelling from Seminyak to the Kebun Impian in Seraya Barat is a journey back to a more authentic Bali. This was confirmed by the welcome from John and Wayan, the wonderfull local cuisine from Wayan and by the local dance-troupe practising in their lovely Balinese pavilion. The swimming pool is superbly sited on the sea-wall with distant vews of Lombok. A visit to the local Amlapura food market with John and Wayan is a truly unique experience.

A wonderful stay with wonderful hosts
