Padangbai Beach Homestay
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Manggis
Reviewed September 5, 2010

The still down-to-earth beach town of Padangbai in Eastern Bali is the perfect place for those who hate interchangeable beach resort towns like Kuta, Sanur or Seminyak with its crowds and characterless international hotels.

In Padangbai you will find modest beachside accommodation in various bungalow hotels, one of them being the Padangbai Beach Home Stay. I chose it because of the beautiful little garden and its new, wonderful pool. It is just off the waterfront at the end of Jl. Silayukti, the main drag with restaurants, dive shops and hotels, at the far end of Padangbai Beach. The famous Blue Lagoon beach is a pleasant 5min uphill hike away, so the location of this hotel is just perfect.

The hotel has different rooms, most of them in little individual bungalows. While the cheapest don´t have A/C or a sink in the bathroom (just a "naked" tap), there are also new and elegant deluxe rooms with a huge kingsize bed, TV, aircon and hot water. Prices are too step, however, ranging from IRP 350,000 for the most basic of rooms to IRP 650,000 for the state-of-the-art deluxe room. The bungalows are all rather dark but clean enough. The more you pay, the better they look.

The breakfast is a bad joke. You can choose a few items and then there is a long list of pricey extras you can order (which I wouldn´t do - rather have breakfast in town!).

Staff are not very helpful and seem to lack any motivation to help, but will offer transport, dive or snorkel trips. If you are not interested, they will be even less cordial! They will also tell stories about money problems to lure you into leaving a generous, undeserved tip. There is no room service other than breakfast delivery to your room (a must, not an option, as there is no other place to have breakfast), so you must ask for fresh towels, which eventually will be reluctantly handed over to you.

Although you pay more than what it´s worth, the pool and the location make up for a lot of the negative things and so I would go back to the hotel if I ever was to go to Padangbai again.
