*most consistent surf in Bali (in the world!) and uncrowded empty beaches for non surfers to enjoy.
beautifully restored javanese wood style joglo (bungalows). very mellow place and friendly village up the hill. ideal for couples, families, surfers, eco friendly travelers, and non-party animals. this place is special!
The main surf break is about a 60 second walk away. There are several good restaurants minutes away. Great fresh seafood can be had at the little warungs right on the beach and eaten while you watch the sunset.
Beach is great for running, frolicking, splashing in the waves, surfing, long walks, shell and beach glass hunting and crab chasing. This area is where people come to from other parts of Bali to get away and relax. Quiet, simple, and beautiful yet comfortable enough that you will not want to leave. We didn't!
Access to kitchen, pool area, beach, surf, yoga classes,restaurants massage, and cafés.
Interaction with Guests
When I'm around I'm available to answer any questions that guests have and offer surfing, yoga, and beach tips. I'm often teaching elsewhere in Bali and Asia in which case my friendly staff takes care of any and all guest needs.
It's friendly and peaceful here. Great places to eat right on the beach. Fun waves and unspoiled beaches. Becoming a yoga hub.
No need for a car here as everything is walking distance. There is taxi service here for day trips to other areas of Bali or drop off at the airport
Other Things to Note
Bst to bring some indonesian money with you as there is only one ATM that doesn't always work with foreign bank cards....and is often out of order. No money changers in Balian. Closest reliable ATMs are an hour away.
No smoking in the bungalow please
Please turn off lights and water when not using them.
Leave safety box open when you leave
relax, enjoy, and have fun.
Balian Magical Bungalows truly are magical! The setting is beautiful and tranquil and a short walk from warungs (cafes), social life and amazing surf breaks. Oliver is a very accommodating host. He greeted us personally and nothing was too much trouble. The beautiful Javanese hut we stayed in is in a peaceful setting framed by a beautiful garden where we slept to the sound of the sea. The locals are friendly and fun too.
My family had such a relaxed month at Olivers. Mr Arsa and his wife Putu were so welcoming & helpful - making us feel at home and safe. The longer we stayed the better it got & we were able to feel the authentic Balinese lifestyle, while being amongst other laidback tourists - so it was a good balance. The pool & kitchen were exclusively ours and such a great way to keep cool and replenished. The original joglo accommodation is surrounded by a garden of flowers and lush plants with a feeling of privacy and security. Great restaurants all around - affordable, clean and all within short walking distance, esp Malu Mai next door (Ayu is a wonderful host). Thank you Oliver we will be back - a genuine place to unwind from the pressures of home and escape from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Bali.
Beautiful area, cute bungalow, loved the shower! Kitchen really great too, swimming pool a treat. Boy those construction workers work hard though...11, 12 sometimes even 13 hours a day!! When we were there they didn't even take a day off over the weekend and they literally are right in your back yard. Does kind of become like white noise after not too long though. Very happy to have discovered the area - Arsa is a gem, thanks for sharing Oliver!
I spent 4 nights here, Oliver's a really nice guy and a down to earth, helpful host. the villa is great, relaxing, 2 minutes walk to the beach and some great waves. Highly recommend staying. I will certainly be back
Nothing to add, surfers best choice.
Oliver is very honest concerning the construction side. When i was there, there were three days where the workers startet at 07:00 and ended at 18:00 and this next to the place. So relaxing after surfing was not possible. The next two weeks (without workers) it was like paradise what you expect.
Also worth to mention, despite of the friendly host, his crew, the pool, ... , is that you are here in a very nice area of bali, maybe the best beachside. No one asks you here to give you a transport neither a massage, so you can just enjoy your visit.
A surfers dream shack near good waves. Cool bathroom. Recommend eating at the stall on the beach, and of course don't miss Oliver's great Yoga class.
Inexperienced swimmers take care in the water please, but enjoy the beach so close by! Thanks Oli!!!
Very traditional and very basic wooden villa set in a nice blossomed garden with banana trees and palms. No aircon, just a fan and a cold shower, but if you are looking for a traditional balinese style accommodation hidden away from the crowds then I would highly recommend Oliver's place. There is also equipped kitchen for your use, with fridge, which we used to store some fruit and drinks. We (me, my mother and my 4yo son) had an excellent 6 day stay and Oliver and his house manager Arsa are both excellent hosts who try their best to do whatever they can, to make the stay more pleasant. Oliver organised our pick up at the airport, which was very helpful and was on hand to give advice about local sightseeing places. Great surfing beach is just 1 minute walk and the private pool is an absolute gem. we felt very spoilt, especially my 4yo son loved the pool so much we couldn't get him out most of the days.
