Description

The Space

A little bit of HEAVEN in North Bali!
Only 15 minutes drive from Singaraja.

SUNSET SALA is the name of this very special place in a traditional Balinese village of Sudaji - North Bali. Be surprised to see another westerner!

The teak house (Gladak) is 80 years old. Sanded and transported from Java to the rice-fields of Bali. We had to build a path to get to our little bit of heaven. The views are stunning- mountains to the south and sea to the north and rice terraces and forest in front.

Eco - solar lighting and power, water from pump from channel.

1 DOUBLE BED INSIDE HOUSE. 1 DAY BED AND 1 BENCH OUTSIDE ON TERRACE (no nets)

There is a hexagonal Gazebo on the layer above with 8 brick lotus leaves on each corner. Lie in the hammock or sit and contemplate the ever changing colours of the day. Great spot for Yoga and mediation. Sunsets are really special here. Did we mention that we have uninterrupted views and the surrounds are pristine?

Terrace on three sides of the Gladak allows you to either hang out on the day bed or sit in a bulky teak chairs and chat. Fancy a high backed chair and table for a meal or writing? - that's on the mountain corner. Around the corner is a fully equipped kitchen with a water purifier. Only small car fridge available - please buy your fresh food from market every day. Or eat at local Warungs - only a few are open for lunch but many more for dinner OR Ibu Ayu will cook lunch and/or dinner at 60,000rp per person per meal. Have to organise ahead as she goes to market in the morning. Breakfast included in tariff- usually fresh fruit and omlette or as arranged - not traditional western breakfast.

You can't drive a car to the gladak - closest stop is the local temple about 150m away. after that its on foot or for the brave -a motorbike!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTY OR GO TO FANCY RESTAURANTS --- THIS IS NOT THE PLACE -- ITS A QUIET RETREAT IN THE RICE FIELDS OF A TRADITIONAL BALINESE VILLAGE. A great opportunity to see local Balinese about their daily life.

This is a QUIET place – great for relaxing, enjoying the village and people, sight-seeing to the beach (9 km away) and the magnificent Sekempul waterfalls 10 mins away by car or motorbike. Air Saneh is 20 minutes drive east. Lovina 40 minutes drive to the west by car.
Singaraja is 15 mins to the west by car.
Menenjangan Island for snorkeling or diving (best in Bali) is 2 hours away.

I will not be there but Ibu Ayu looks after the house and so does Pak and Ibu Mangku (priest and wife).

Ibu Ayu phone number is (phone number hidden)

Magnificent views
Real Bali
Quiet except for locals coming to say hello or wave
3 hours by car from Kuta


You can hire SunSetSala's Scoopy motorbike (if you can ride already otherwise not a good idea, especially as I built the path and its only 1 metre wide!) for $5 a day and take yourself around the area.

There is a car and driver in Sudaji -around $50 a day

THERE IS NO WIFI
There is only a small battery operated fridge so go to local market “pasar" (open 4am to 730am) and buy fresh! Enjoy the locals – of course they charge you a little more… it is still very cheap!
Everything is eco, so by default – you must be too… only solar electricity available so can only charge a computer and phone and use lights – anything else will ruin the battery and leave you with no lights… (yes, no hairdryers or toasters!) There is no air-conditioning or fans – not needed – natural living. In fact you will often need a blanket (supplied). Bring a light jacket for night-time.

The water is pumped by the local priest from a water channel so please use sparingly. To have a shower with enough pressure you must first turn on shower and then flush the toilet!!!

BREAKFAST is included and Dinner or Lunch is extra. You can go to local warungs in the village, or Lovina, or Air Saneh or Singaraja OR you can eat at home - menu to be discussed with Ibu Ayu - each meal is 60,000rp per person per meal. Children under 14 are half price. Yes I know it is more expensive than a warung but please remember this is not a restaurant and everything is bought, carried to gladak, and cooked especially for you!

House Rules

everything is eco so by default - you must be too... only solar electricity so can only charge a computer and phone and use lights - anything else will ruin the battery and leave you with no lights... also the water is pumped by the local priest from water channel so please use sparingly.
we recycle so separate. Ibu Ayu will clean once a day and cook you breakfast if you want (included) - she comes around 7-730am and leaves around 11.30am and returns 4-6pm. She will clean the gazebo until you wake up -- so CALL OUT when you are awake and she will come and offer you tea or coffee and start cleaning and your breakfast. Ayu's english is limited - but a healthy dose of patience and a dictionary (available) will assist

Ayu can also massage – she is not a professional but your body feels great afterwards. 80,000rp per hour – pay directly to Ibu Ayu
