This was booked for me by the dive operator I used as part of Diving/Hotel/Transportation package. Not knowing what to really expect since I didn't do any research on this "1-night accommodation", and from the name "Homestay" I imagined that I would be staying at someone's spare bedroom or a guest house in the back.
What a pleasant surprise! It turned out that Taruna Homestay is a charming villa with private bungalows, front desk and a restaurant in a lovely garden setting.
Ladies at Front Desk & Restaurant are genuinly kind, helpful, inviting and accommodating...I couldn't be more impressed.
On my bed were flower petals carefully placed in the shape of "heart" and a big leaf with personal welcome messeage hand-written right on it! I was blown away...Wow is an understatement.
Simple cozy room has a king-size bed and a closet, which is like a little treasure chest as you'll find a pretty lounging robe, a pair of flip-flops and a casual beach bag inside. What more do you want?
When you open the bathroom door and step in -OUT actually- the large bathroom is 'al fresco'.
I am not used to "open-air bathroom concept", but this was private, beautiful and even spiritual.
I would absolutely recommend Taruna Homestay to anyone visiting the area. I can assure you that they will make you feel so special and welcomed with true Balinese hospitality from the heart.
