NICE. On a cliff overlooking the surf! CLEAN. I would say the eating options in the vacinity are very limited, compared to, say Kuta. But if you are a surfer, you have to stay here, if only for a night or so.
Surfer's location, but not cheap / surfer's price range. Was about $65 a nite. I bet it is very quiet at night, with the sound of the crashing waves!!!
As you approach close to the edge of the cliff
on Balangan Beach,
on the right hand side
on the dirt road are 4 thatched bungalows.
Simple, but cute,
each bungalow has a front porch
where you can chill
while feeling the fresh sea breeze.
The gardens are well kept.
Bed sheets were clean,
but there were several
on the mosquito net,
so make sure to bring plenty of repellant.
The semi-open bathroom had a large vase
filled with water for bathing purposes,
(no shower here)
a sit down toilet and sink.
The stairs will lead you to the mezzanine
where another bed with an amazing view
If you are the kind
to get up several times
in the middle of the night
to use the loo,
maybe this is not the place for you to sleep.
The steps down are pretty steep.
The property has its own restaurant,
which is run by Made the chef
and keeps it was clean.
It is an easy walk down the
dirt path to Balangan Beach,
which for Zen seekers,
in my opinion is the best.
200,000 Rp for smaller bungalows that sleeps 4
250,000 Rp for large bungalow that sleeps 6
Negotiable for longer stays
and low season.
Welley is the Operation Staff
Perched on the cliff
with sea views at Bingin Beach
is Mic’s Place.
With 5 cute bungalow,
1 with 2 bedrooms,
this is a great spot for not only surfers,
but lovers of the simple, beach life.
But higher in category than
most budget places that surround it.
A great place to take over completely amongst friends,
since the bungalows are approximate to each other.
Bungalows do not have air cons,
but are open to the sea breeze
and amazing views.
Not sure of the lighting,
since I visited it in the day.
Bathrooms are separated by an open wall.
So a bit embarrassing if you happen to catch Bali Belly
and wind up spending most of your time on the Loo.
Prices are bit more expensive here,
at the time that I visited it,
they were asking $90 a night.
But over all,
a nice place to stay,
for adventurous travelers.
Not sure if for newly weds,
since everyone can hear you at night!
Right above Bingin Beach
Perched on the cliff
over looking Bingin Beach,
before arriving to the numerous steps down,
is Kembang Kuning with 5 bungalows,
and a few more under constructions.
The views are absolutely amazing.
Not only of Bingin Beach,
but also of Dreamland Beach
within the short distance.
Great for checking the surf at both beaches.
The property also offers outside chilling
with day beds.
Rooms and bathrooms with sit down toilets
are impeccably clean.
There’s no air con,
but the sea breeze should do.
And the price…..
150,000 per night
Clean and comfortable
Not sure if it is a quality,
but you got this family of monkeys that
pay the occasional visit in the mornings or late afternoon.
They want food!!!!
A bit further
past Thomas Homestay,
is Rocky Bungalows.
You’ll see the sign
off the main street to your right.
There is a view of the ocean,
and has a great swimming pool.
Unlike most of the other warungs.
There are 14 rooms of which,
6 had a/c. Another luxury
within the surf bungalow category.
All other rooms have a fan.
They offer cold water, real toilets,
and there is a restaurant on the premises..
Rooms are basic, but clean.
Rooms go for 250,000rp
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 the first floor down,
heading a bit north is Sticky’s Place I.
Again, rooms have great views.
And have a chill out terrace, mosquito net,
and plenty of stairs to walk up and down.
The place is impeccably clean,
but make sure to express your preference
of a squat or sit down toilet.
They have both.
Prices range from 150,000 – 200,000
and maybe 150,000 for longer stays.
The owner is I Nyoman Tenes
Perched on the cliff at Bingin
is Nirvana Biru Bali.
This villa offers great views
over the surf at Bingin beach.
There are 4 enclosed bedrooms
on the lower floor.
Upstairs on the mezzanine
are several day beds which
can be used for sleeping at night,
protected by mosquito nets.
The property has a swimming pool
located near the edge of the cliff.
Dining takes place in the garden.
Definitely, this is a great place to stay,
when not occupied by the owners.
Prices vary according to the season,
and the amount of rooms used.
trying to book a place in Bali,
isn’t as easy as we think.
Local managers don’t check their e-mails,
they don’t speak English,
their phone isn’t working,
they don’t have a web-site,
etc. etc. etc.
or simply they have
no idea what they are doing!
If you want to make your booking easier,
an alternative choice is to contact
Bali Retreats which, does bookings for
a few places located in the Bukit area.
Prices are higher to include their fees,
but it just may be worth paying it,
to be assured you have a room.
If you happen to be
on a tighter budget and
would like to get the best deal
you can at a particular venue,
then try to contact the owners
or managers of the venue directly.
It may take a bit of patience
and persistence but,
let it be known that
the venues have raised
their prices on behalf of
the advice of these agents
and the growing demand
and lack of supply.
But if you book directly with the venue,
you may just negotiate a sweet %
off the actual price.
Within the Bingin Beach area
is a new property composed
of 3 wooden bungalows.
There isn’t a seaview here,
but it is walking distance to the beach.
Rooms are clean, but a bit cramped.
Mosquito nets are provided
along with a tv that plays DVD movies.
Bathrooms are located outside,
behind the bungalows.
The property itself is rather large.
A good location if you are on a certain budget,
looking to be walking distance from Bingin Beach
and prefer a cleaner place.
The views just brilliant! Directly to the sea, with coconut trees, cool swimmingpool and Balinese accentuation everywhere --from mural in the lobby ceiling, many kind of stuffs in the room, 'till the fragrance of its flowers :) So romantic here, but I have to go soon since my work is waiting :(
I like their pool very much, then easy chair and welcome drink (put in the batok kelapa, coconut glass added with a slice of pineapple). Woww, like in Hawaii ;)
This particular place,
has extended further
with 4 new bungalows.
They are larger in size,
bathrooms are nice
and more comfortable.
For lcal expats,
is a great place to
come and spend a weekend
next to the beach.
The bungalow that I saw,
had 3 beds, divided amongst 2 floors.
prices at the time of my vist were
350,000 Rp the night.
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.
As you arrive to the hills of Bukit,
tucked away is Angkasa Villa.
3 separate rooms with en suite bathrooms,
a full kitchen and service.
an extra office/guest room
and a beautiful open living room
with high views of Jimbaran Bay.
Because of it’s location,
transportation is a must.
And some might prefer
to be closer to the sea.
But otherwise the villa has great views
is of a high end category
managed by The Tamu Group.
Very nice architectural designs.
This isn't the typical surfer's hang out,
nor is the price.
No squat toilets here!
There are 8 smaller,
circular styled bungalows
with a great attention to detail,
comfort and cleanliness.
Some of the newer bungalows
that have been recently built,
are further back from the beach,
but offers a comfortable, rustic stay.
Upon entering the property
you encounter a large,
common open dining room
offering Balinese cuisine
for lunch or dinner and a
lounge area to relax to lounge music
and enjoy the spectacular view.
The 25 m pool also greets you,
and invites you to come in
and enjoy a refreshing dip.
Each bungalow is private,
with a small garden and
most offer a spectacular view
of Balangan Beach Bay.
Seven of the eight bungalows,
can sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children.
There is one villa is set apart,
divided into 2 floors,
with it's own 15m,
private swimming pool,
and can sleep up to 8 people.
Open since July 2003,
and runned by Europeans,
if you can appreciate
the magnificent beauty
that Balanagan Beach offers,
and prefer to do it in style and comfort,
then this may just be the place.
Prices at the time of my visit:
Bungalows: 70 Euros breakfast included
The Villa: 250 Euros including breakfast for 6 people.
Full restaurant service
Walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bukit.
