Balenta was a very comfortable place to stay, with FRESH WATER, a ceiling fan and AIR CON (the fan didn't work but the air con was great!). For 300,000 I had a great little bungalow tucked back away from the street, in a beautiful setting (see photos).
The bathroom could have been cleaner but was on par with other outside style bathrooms in Lombok. The sheets and towels were clean and the bed comfortable. I had no problem sleeping, it was nice and quiet. Sadly there was no fridge in the room (most of these style of bungalows in this price range don't) and there was no safety box but I locked my valuables in my backpack and had no problems with theft.
Directly across the road was an amazing location for snorkelling... more impressive than the glass-bottomed boat tour I had done the day before. I was able to follow a large sea turtle around while he grazed on sea grass, and saw some beautiful fish.
Breakfast was tasty... the usual banana pancake and fresh squeezed mixed juice.
I would definitely stay here again.
