High value near the beach and airport

None of your business

We stayed here for one night between arriving from Lombok and one of us leaving via the Denpasar airport the next day. We picked it as a rest stop near the beach, but liked the place and pool so much we rested in the hotel instead. The service is luxurious and excellent, the restaurant very good and the rooms lovely. It’s a small intimate hotel that tries hard to please. At low season it was a bargain. Jimbaran is a working beach for fishing and is far from the best beach hangout in Bali, but it’s interesting for a short walk and completely avoids the artificiality of Kuta. The hotel pool is much nicer though. And it’s 15 minutes from the airport which lets you max out on your last morning. They also arranged a driver for us to see the kecak dancers at Uluwatu the evening we arrived, and that was wonderful. We would definitely come back for a first or last night in Bali. Thanks Open House for a great night.

This is a great family run boutique hotel

London, United Kingdom

This hotel was excellent for a solo traveller. I felt very safe and welcome there. Its minutes to the beach. Room whilst not big, it very comfortable and has everything you need, including cute little touches. The pool was lovely with very warm water and many lounges to use throughout the day. The beach nearby had a lot of rubbish due to tide and so I could not swim there. The hotel staff said this happens everytime around Chinese New Year. Its a fishing village, so if you like fresh fish, you will find something to eat here. I had a lunch at the hotel and salad was lovely. The massage was great too. Staff were all very friendly and place felt like home. There were a few couples with small children and the bottom rooms are great for people with kids. The hotel is not near any big shops, but you can take a taxi into Kuta or Nusa Dua very easily.
