We came across Taruna by chance, booked to stay 1 night and ended up staying 3. The staff are so professional and lovely, especially Tia and Ayu who made our stay so brilliant and are both so smart and good at their jobs! The food is some of the best we had in Bali, they hire out snorkelling gear, arrange trips and give a welcome drink and a map on the area upon arrival. The room was gorgeous with a fantastic outdoor bathroom. The swimming pool is beautiful. The rooms come with a kettle and tea and there are slippers and robes in the wardrobe. Tia made the stay even more special by decorating our bed with personalised flower petals! Thankyou Taruna, from Jenny and Chris

After we check in the owner came to welcome us , the staffs are nice and helpful .We had 4 rooms, room 8 and 9 is connecting rooms which are nearer to the pool. Great things that the rooms are clean and nice , the bad thing is you will find a lot insects in the bathroom. The laundry is cheap and the clothes smell so nice after wash. They serve the best food I had in Bali. Try the mahi mahi (grill fish) serve with rice and 3 difference sauces. Snorkling trip to Menjagan Island is 325 000rp per pax including pack lunch and drink. Thanks to Tia, she is so helpful and friendly. We feel so welcome by the Taruna family, and will recommend to all to stay here if you come to Pemuteran.

We had a lovely experience there. Our room (number 3) was a queen superior and everything was in good condition, clean, very well presented and maintained. If I were going back to Pumuteran, I would definitely stay there again.

The beds were clean, comfortable and had mosquito nets too. The bathroom is outside, but that was a plus for us (especially if someone happens to have Bali belly). The breakfasts were good, the pool is lovely, the gardens are well maintained and the staff will do anything to help you.

The only down sides are that the restaurant is on the main road, so it gets noisy (but you can eat at the porch on your room any time) and it is about a 15 minute walk to the corals and the beach that end. Just remember, Pumuteran is black sand, not the white sand.

Go there, give it a try, you'll be glad you did, especially when you compare their price, quality, value and excellent friendly staff to other local places :0)

Room Tip: further in the back for a quieter room

We stayed here for 3 days and this is great place to stay. Family is very friendly and knows how to make you feel welcome.

Rooms are good and cold shower (which we knew) even feels warm.


They also have a tasteful restaurant which we visited three times. A thing we normally never do but this serves one of the best meals we had in Bali.

Taruna and family thanks a lot!

An exceptional stay with Taruna and his family. The place meets very high quality standards, not really a homestay in that sense, yet it is very affordable. Staff was extremely friendly, room was beautiful with a stunning outdoor bathroom and food was excellent. It was the nicest accommodation at this price range I stayed at while in Indonesia. I already recommended it to people I met on the road, so will do it here too.

We stayed in a deluxe room (rm 9 of 9 rooms). This is a Lovely home stay. All staff are from the same family and they could not be friendlier or more helpful. We were welcomed with open arms and after 4 nights left there as friends. The meals we took there were very nice and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this place, especially if you are looking for a quiet, smaller place to stay. Oh, yes, we also took a snorkeling tour for one day, which was also organized via the staff. To sum it up: LOVED IT.

Room Tip: Rooms 8 and 9 are the latest additions, so fairly new. Room 9 is at the end of the path and has onl...
