The room itself was lovely and clean and had an authentic feel with it being a wooden cottage. Unfortunately the bathroom wasn't up to scratch. It looked unfinished with lots of concrete exposed and the water in the shower was consistently cold. For the price paid I would have expected warm water. Unfortunately as a hotel this place lacks atmosphere. It is all concrete and the restaurant was poor , when we arrived we ate there, when our meal arrived we were told they couldn't give us boiled rice but we could have fried rice!!!! I would recommend going next door to Lajoya for food and atmosphere.
The location of this room is excellent, there are steps down to beautiful Balangan beach, which is so lovely and excellent for surfing (if you are experienced).
We can do nothing but agree with the previously written reviews. The place is lacking charm, and comes off as a bit boring. Like written in other reviews, the place is ok, the bungalows are clean, the location is good and the staff are really helpful and nice. We did not meet Alex in person. I wrote him an email the day prior to our arrival to inform him of our ETA. On the day of arrival we tried texting and calling him. Unfortunately we were not able to get in contact with him.
We had a great time in Balangan! The hotel is great - and the staff are very attentive! The place is great for surfing, having a few drinks in the beach earrings or just relaxing by the pool.
Only thing I would warn is that the local drivers (organised through the hotel) can be pushy and expensive. Blue bird cabs do come out to Balangan (though they may tell you otherwise). Blue bird cabs are a lot cheaper!!!
We stayed there a couple of nights, the staff is nice, the bungalows are nice, the pool is ok.
Basically everything about this property is this, ok (except for the restaurant on the premises and food it serves which are both horrible).
If you are looking for convenience, then i guess that will do, but it is a bit depressing as there is absolutely no charm to this property.
Other than the food, i cannot really complain about anything in particular, but we went to the hotel right next door for a drink (La Joya), and it is basically exactly the same, except that they've got the charm/atmosphere right. There the pool area is wooden decked vs stones (the not pretty kind), the pool chairs look nicer and newer, the restaurant area looks like a realy holiday restaursnt/bar rather than the hospital cafeteria look alike that is in this property and the rooms also just look prettier, and the grass looks unkept, tired, and old compared to next door also.
However, again, if you just need convenience, it's fine. But don't take your girlfriend, mine wanted to leave after the first night.
Had a fabulous time. Out of my four places in Bali, this was one of the best. Best location of a authentic tranquil experience. The bungalow was amazing and the host and staff were more than attentive, they are your friends. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!
To a large extent what you see on its (website hidden) listing is what you get. This is a complex of thatched hut-like villa surrounding a small pool, with a restaurant at one end overlooking the famous Balangan Beach.
There is also a small spa facility attached next to the pool. On our first day, after our red eye flight we decided to some massage treats which went pretty well all considering (IDR150K for one hour, and the masseuse is pretty good), but it was the miscommunication which took the wind out of our sail – see more below.
This is a well kept place, generally clean and we were pretty much happy with it. Nevertheless I couldn’t help but a slight underuse vibe about the hotel. The hardware is there but it felt unloved for, and though the villas seem to be pretty occupied while we were there, we always feel alone and never ever crowded.
On the first afternoon we were there we discovered to our dismay that there were no water! That wasn’t good as we were dripping wet from a soak in the pool. We were told that the water supply was being filled up, and I stared in disbelief. How could a hotel operate without proper water supply but rely on water tank?
Check-in process was flawless. We just show them our (website hidden) print out and we were shown to our room right away, with little fuss. The checkout was quick too, and it helped that the staff was helpful to extend the villa for us for another half day (at additional charge) as we were not due for the airport until the evening of our last day. Everything was paid at the end, and all the services and food we consumed were tracked meticulously.
Communications with the on-site staff, alas, wasn't as smooth. Though generally acceptable and we usually get our message across, but there were some pointed moments, like when we were told that we can have couple massage sessions back to back, starting at 12 p.m., but instead only one therapist turned up and we had to look for her after 1 p.m. That thrown our plan for the day into total mishap and in the end one of us had to give up the massage. The therapist insisted that we book for four. Four of us, one after another, in one day? The therapist may be well trained and experienced to do so under the scorching heat. but we ain’t got four hours to spare waiting around for each other.
For those whom are new to Bali, please be warned. Balangan Beach is far from everything else, and the hote is very hard to reach for those unfamiliar to it. But if you do travel out and then travel back to the hotel by rented car or taxi, be fairly warned that you’ll find the experience cumbersome – especially after dark – and not to mention more expensive.
