3D Warung & Accomodation: Cheap Stays

If you’re on a tight budget,
yet DO appreciate staying in a clean place,
then maybe 3D Warung is a stop to be considered.

This family operated warung offers
a series of lined up rooms
facing a n area filled with trees.

Rooms are freshly new,
offering comfortable bedding,
clean floors, natural lighting in the bathroom, etc.

A fan is offered to cool off,
and there is no hot water.

The properties restaurant
offers real cheap eats.

A motorbike will be needed
to seek out the surf stops,
but that is something to
be considered anyway.

Price at the time of my visit was 50,000 Rp the night.
A REAL DEAL!!!

Take the main road leading to Bingin beach.
Before arriving to Bingin
when the hill starts to incline sharply,
watch out for the 3D Warung Road Flags
on the right hand side.

Real Cheap
Clean

Up on the cliff, at Temple Lodge Bingin

A brand new location
that has just opened is,
The Temple Lodge.

This location is perfect
for surfing fanatics
who are also fanatic of
a certain level of comfort
amongst the rustic,
Mediterranean colors.

No squat toilets here!
Just an infinite view
into the horizon and
of the swells in front of
Dreamland, Bingin
and at Impossible Beach.

There are two rooms
with double beds and
en-suite bathrooms

There is one other bungalow
with 2 rooms sharing a bathroom.

Two of the rooms
are located on the cliff,
offering great views and
the on coming sea breeze.

A salt water pool
is centered on the property
for guests to enjoy a refreshing dip.

The common dining room,
has the best seat in the house.

The property is located
walking distance from Bingin Beach.

At the time of my visit,
rooms were going between 50-80 Euros the night.

Rock’n Reef at Impossible Beach: Pleasently Surprised

During my several stays in Bukit
while doing my cleansings,
I would take walks along the beach
and took notice of a structure
being built over a few months.

When it was almost completed,
I decided to take a look
at this warung being built
right on the beach at Impossible.

I was surprised and happy to see,
that unlike most warungs
that you find on the beach,
this one had a certain level of comfort to offer.

There are 3 rooms with ensuite bathrooms,
with air con, a real sit down toilet,
showers with hot water, a firm bed, etc.

Because of the integrated bathroom,
if you plan to share this room,
be aware that the only way
to have privacy when on the loo,
is if the other leaves the room.

1 of the 3 rooms is larger than the other 2.
At the time of my visit durng high season,
prices were going for 500,000 a night
for the smaller rooms
and 800,000 for
the 1 larger room.

I went back to stay a night there,
and was very, pleasantly surprised at how relaxing,
comfortable, and beautiful my stay was.

Sunset views, walks on the beach,
hanging out in a bathing suite, all good stuff!

Because of its beach front location,
one can sleep with the doors open,
and fall asleep to the music of the ocean waves.

When it is high tide,
the only real access to get out,
is by the many stairs, which are steep
and in one particular area, very narrow.

But when it is low tide,
one can walk to Padang Padang
and all the way up to Balangan.
Great place for surfers who
are traveling with picky, clean girlfriends.

Parking is available.
Food is also serviced
and breakfast included in the price.

Take the main road towards Uluwatu.
Pass Bingin Beach.
When you see a sign for C151
turn right.
Follow the dirt road till the end.
There will be a dirt car & motorbike parking lot,
walk and take the cement path,
then walk down the many stairs,
and you will find the entrance down below
before you arrive to the beach.

Kerang Bingin

The latest Bingin craze is that,
foreigners team up with the local Balinese
and invest into upgrading the local home stays.

One of these examples is,
Kerang Bingin perched on the cliff
over looking the surf at Bingin Beach.
This home stay has several rooms within the structure,
sharing bathrooms, kitchen and a large living room space
that has a sea front terrace.

This modest ‘Luxury Living’
as the sign leading the path
to the property announces,
could be considered as a luxury
compared to other home stays,
but not to be mistaken for
one of the higher category villas.

There are plenty of steps to take
in your search for this place to stay,
but once you arrive,
whilst living in a bathing suit,
you have plenty of sunsets,
sea views, to live off of.

Tide Huts next to Dreamland Beach

If you go walking along
the shore lines of the western part of the Bukit,
you will find several small bungalows on the beach.

These huts are perfect for
those who don’t plan to do anything BUT,
live surf, eat surf, look at surf, breath surf, etc.

They are very basic accommodations
providing, basically just surf,
and well…a bed too.

When the tide get high,
you may just be a bit trapped there,
to watch the swells.

Prices are usually between
50,000 – 70,000 RP the night.

Padang Padang Inn

Just walking distance from
Padang Padang Beach,
is Padang Padang Inn.

At the time of my visit,
I could not see a room,
since they were full.

The Balinese that run this place,
really have their act together.
They actually like to work!!!

Either that or they have
more than one wife to support!

Not only do they provide
12 rooms for accommodations,
but they also have an internet café,
a wartel to provide phone calls,
they supply car and motorbike rentals
AND they even have a web-site
and an e-mail address!!!

Now how un-Balinese is that???

Price for rooms run
between 70,000 – 80,000
at the time of my visit.

On top of the swells at Uluwatu Resort (Part 2)

Ok.
Now for the Suluban Room.
It’s very possible that
these were the first bungalows/rooms built.

They look slightly older,
but still very clean and comfortable.

No TV with HBO here.
But hey! With all those
cute surfer dudes down below,
doin’ their stuff,
who needs TV anyway!

You got the surf channel right below!

The terraces for the rooms here,
are not as private as
the ones in the Uluwatu rooms,
but it still offers those great views.

Rooms are nicely decorated,
and the bathrooms are
larger in these rooms.

Prices at the time of my visit were:
$83 + 21% tax

On top of the swells at Uluwatu Resort (Part 1)

Not sure if the name resort
is appropriate for this place,
but compared to the
common bungalows in the area,
it sure is.

This property is located
right on top of the Uluwatu swells.
Some pretty amazing surfing sights
when the action is going on down below.

Not to mention the beautiful sunsets.

Rooms are clean and comfortable.

The rooms further to the south
are called the Uluwatu rooms,
since they are closer to the temple.

The rooms to the north
are called the Suluban rooms,
since they are closer to the beach,
which even though it is
called Uluwatu Beach
it is actually Suluban Beach.

There is a pool,
but it didn’t look very attractive,
since it right within the restaurant/bar area.

There are steps that lead you
directly towards the beach down below.
Free cardio work out included
on the way back up.

So, let’s start with the Uluwatu rooms:

These rooms are bit
more expensive than the Suluban rooms,
but it also has additional perks.

In these rooms you have TV with HBO,
and the room that I saw,
had a connecting door to the adjacent room.
So good for those who are traveling with others.

Rooms are clean and decorated nicely.
They come with a mini-bar, A/C,
Coffee maker, safe deposit box,
cold and hot water.

Bathrooms are small,
but clean and comfortable.

The bed looked very comfy and even romantic.
I was tempted to jump is.

These rooms have a terrace with an amazing view.

Prices at the time of my visit: $93 USD + 21% tax

For older folks at Villa Senyum at Balangan

This Villa is located within
an enclosed neighborhood
with other homes.

As you enter,
what impressed me at first,
was the smell of an elderly person that it had,
despite the fact that the villa
was open towards the sea breeze.

The furnishings look elderly too.

I wasn’t very impressed by the villa.
So, not much needed to be said more.

You can check out their web-site and judge yourself.

Balangan View Cottages

These bungalow are
owned by the same person that
owns Robby & The Kids
at Dreamland Beach.

You first enter this small property
vie the common dining area which, is large.
Once you past this,
you will see 2 thatched bungalows,
with a pool in front that
was being constructed
at the time of my visit.

The bungalows has
a large bed in the ground room,
with plenty of windows
to allow the sea breeze in.

The simple bathroom,
with a real toilet is adjacent to this room.

The up stairs spacious bedroom,
has a large bed with a terrace
over looking the sea view.

Rooms were clean,
Beds provided a real mattress.

If you walk out
to the back of the property,
it overlooks, it over looks the
swells of Balangan Beach.

there were additional rooms
at a cheaper rate in an upstairs structure.

Because of the new construction
going on at Dreamland Beach,
the way out of Balangan to
other neighboring beaches
is by taking the new road
that has been paved.

The other option is,
at low tide,
you can walk all the way
to Padang Padang Beach.

Room rates at the time of my visit were:

380,000 for the larger bungalow
180,000 for the rooms upstairs

Searching to rent a bungalow – Balangan

If all the sea bungalows are fully occupied,
a last resort that you can lean to is,
take the paved road to Balangan,
at the Nimala grocery store crossing,
and drive a few kilometers,
and on our left hand side,
you will see a small dirt road
with some bungalows that are for rent.

At the time of my visit,
there wasn’t a phone number,
but just a sign ‘For Rent.

It is a bit of a distance from
the beach compared to
the ones near the beach,
but if all else fails,
maybe this can be a choice.

Thomas Homestay: Isolation at Thomas Homestay

Perched on what is considered
to be the other Padang Padang Beach,
between Suluban (Uluwatu)
and Padang Padang,
is Thomas Home Stay.

This warung offers an amazing view
of a picturesque white sandy beach,
filled with palm trees.

It is a simple, cheap,
no-frills accommodation.

No surf here.
Just a breath taking view,
and usually no one on it.

There are 6 basic rooms
which are equipped with double
and single beds, a fan
and cold water shower.

They recently built a few new rooms,
so there is an addition.

There is a hike down and up
the many cemented steps to get to the beach.

There aren’t any warungs below offering to eat,
so you will need to either eat there,
or ride to one of the neighboring restaurant
at Uluwatu or at Yeye’s.

The room rate is 50,000rp per night,
not including breakfast.

Ride along the main road towards Padang Padang Beach where the bridge is.
Go past that and past Yeye’s restaurant.
A bit further down, you will see at the right hand side a sign indicated Thomas Homestay.
Follow the dirt path which will lead you to the cliff and the homestay.
