“Hidden gem”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

Kebun Impian means garden dream in Balinese or Indonesian. It is owned by Australian John and his Balinese wife, Wayan. It is more like a bed&breakfast than a hotel, with only 3 or four rooms. The ocean view room is by far the best as it has it's own little porch. I had the good fortune of being the only guest at the time. Europeans cancelled reservations due to the volcano in Iceland closing airports. It was like having my own private villa and staff.

The hotel is not near anything (except the ocean) so you pretty much have to take your meals there. Fortunately, Wayan and her capable staff of 3 are more than competent cooks and will do whatever they can to make sure you are happy.

It is next door to the larger "Seraya Shores" hotel that costs twice as much. Kabun Impian is more friendly and personable. John helped me plan the rest of my time on Bali with excellent recommendations. For an easy day trip, car&driver (Wayan's brother) go snorkeling in the Amed area and do not miss Tirta Ganga water palace - perhaps my favorite place in all of Bali. You can swim in cool spring-fed pools, and with the heat+humidity being what it is, this is truly delightful.

Speaking of which, the rooms currently are only fan-cooled but they are planning to add air conditioning. John is an artist and was a stone carver by trade. The property is small but beautifully landscaped - especially the little round room that has its own private garden and waterfall.
