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

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.
