In total, we spent 4 nights with Taruna and his family, and we can't give them enough praise. Their attention to detail and genuine interest truly made our stay magical. Taruna's wife prepares the most delicious meals and the fresh fruit juices are the perfect treat to beat the heat. The set breakfast menu is quite large, but as vegans, we were limited to the fried rice each morning. Knowing our food restrictions, the staff happily adjusted menu items when possible (substituting brown sugar for the honey in the welcome drinks at each meal and making the sweet corn croquettes without egg).
The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bed is extremely comfortable. The outdoor bathroom is amazing! There's nothing quite like showering under the stars and a full moon. The gardens are impeccable and gorgeous, and the pool is like your own private oasis. The public beach, with its fantastic snorkeling, is a short 10-minute walk away.
Staying a few days at Taruna Homestay is a must if you're planning a trip to Bali! It's definitely worth a visit to Pemuteran.

Room Tip: Splurge a bit more for the deluxe rooms. They are amazing!

8 nuits et vraiment Taruna Homestay est l'endroit à choisir à Pemuteran! Un rapport qualité prix au top! Les chambres, la cuisine savoureuse et en quantité très correcte, la piscine et le cadre, ainsi que les attentions de toute l'équipe en font un endroit à recommander! N'hésitez pas, après avoir essayé d'autres warungs, aucun ne surpasse en finesse celui de Taruna!
8 nights spent there, and really this the place to chose in Pamuteran!Wonderful quality and price ratio! Very nice bedrooms, the dishes are delicious, the atmosphere and the swimming pool are great. The team takes care so much and many attentions will satisfy you. I recommend this place for your stay and for your warung choice, Taruna is certainly the most refined. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Number 1 & 2 are just great, in front of the garden, very intimate location.

We stayed at Taruna Homestay for 5 nights and enjoyed the experience immensely. It is an impeccably run boutique hotel with friendly warm service provided by Taruna and his wife Nileh and all the staff we met. They were open, delightful company and made our stay a pleasure. The restaurant, primarily Balinese style cooking, deserves the high rating it gets on this website as the best place to eat in Pemuteran. It is all freshly prepared and, as such, one must be prepared to wait. It is not a McDonalds. The grilled fish in banana leaf a feature dish but many others to choose from as well. The rooms were spotless and the servicing constant. We appreciated all the little touches - flowers in the room, mosquito coils, quick response to any queries. etc. They organised a snorkelling tour for us, and we used the transport service to be picked up from Ubud and taken to Jimbaran and found drivers, and related support staff, equally thoughtful and caring. We certainly hope we can arrange to come back soon. The massages we had were thorough, firm but gentle.

The reviews are all correct. I was treated as family. I am learning Indonesian and the family and owner spared no opportunity to help me. They arranged a fantastic snorkel tour for us. The personal touches are all as other reviewers have described, detailed and delightful. There is one thing I have not yet seen so far, posted on the reviews, and that is the water quality. We came in January, the rainy season, and the beaches and waters are full of trash. Literally, I swam through floating trash to see the most beautiful coral reefs I have ever seen. It was bittersweet. I have asked others about this, and it appears that this is a problem particular to the rainy season. That being said, the grounds of Taruna are spotless. Their pool is spotless and lovely. I saw families and couples having a blast. The food is excellent. I will return again for sure, I look forward to it!

Room Tip: I stayed in the most basic room. It was excellent, but I think for the few bucks more I would upgrade next time.

After traveling through Java (not so friendly people), we arrived in Permuteran. We didn’t know what to expect of Bali. But the friendly people of Taruna homestay, made this the best stay of our trip through Indonesia( Java-bali-flores). Just the little things: like flowers on your bed, If you ask something they will go out of their way to get it done and just how happy and friendly they are.
I should have done this review a few months ago, but better late than never.
Thanks again for the nice stay.
