Darmada is tucked away in the village Sideman, which sits in a gorgeous valley in East Bali. With only 4 rooms it's quite intimate and each opens on freshly tilled rice paddies at the front, and by a small babbling brook at the back.
The rooms are very nice with fantastic floor tile work which come from the owners' tile fabrication company, Sadus, just up the road. The rooms are spacious with unique bathrooms with the sounds of the river and rice paddies throughout the night. The only drawback, and its really not that much of a problem, is that while there are only 4 rooms, they are set up like a duplex so each room shares a wall with another. But again, this wasn't much of an issue. The layout is quite relaxing, with the river on one side and creeks running through, one right into the pool and gardens all around.
The resort has a lovely restaurant with excellent Balinese dishes with fruits, veggies and meats all locally sourced.
Great spot! Stay a while !
