The bulk of the accommodation in Sideman is along a north-south running road a little away from the village proper. It is a beautiful area.
Previously Uma Agung, Teras Bali Sidemen is one of the best value for money options in Sideman. While the older rooms are skippable, their newer rooms, which overlook the swimming pool are great. While they're not the biggest we've seen, the freestanding bungalows are immaculate and well fitted out, with comfortable beds draped with mosquito nets (more for decor than use). The swimming pool isn't... Read our full review of Teras Bali.
First port of call for many travellers arriving in Sideman, Lihat Sawah has a wide range of rooms catering to most budgets. For backpackers they have a handful of budget rooms, with smarter two-storey deluxe rooms on hand for flashpackers through to the midrange crowd. A larger house on site is perfect for families. A new horizon swimming pool rounds out a pretty good deal (and makes the budget... Read our full review of Lihat Sawah.
Sawah Indah Guesthouse is a bit like the house that just keeps on going. They've fitted an improbable number of rooms into this two storey brick house set in the middle of the rice fields. Rooms range from compact doubles to quite spacious family digs, with most, especially the upstairs ones, enjoying fabulous rice field views. Rooms are simply yet tastefully decorated with Sideman's trademark... Read our full review of Sawah Indah Guesthouse.
Surya Shanti Villa is the flashest property we've seen in Sideman. It's located last off the rank along the meandering road that is home to most of the lodgings and boasts some of the best views in Sideman. Most of the accommodation is in two-storey villas (with separate rooms upstairs and down) which milk the view for all it is worth, all the time overlooking a tempting horizon pool. The...

These houses may look a bit shack-like from the road, but they're actually pretty smart affairs with downstairs given over to a living area, and upstairs, reached by a spiral staircase, for sleeping. There is also a basic kitchenette thrown in which helps to make up for the lack of a restaurant, though with other eateries very close, the lack of a restaurant isn't really much of an issue. While... Read our full review of Kubu Tani Homestay.
A couple of kilometres north of Sideman proper, this sprawling hilltop estate has a gaggle of Balinese-style bungalows scattered across a lush garden which enjoys tremendous views north to Gunung Agung and south towards the coast. The views will take your breath away -- these are the best views bar none in Sideman. Unfortunately, while the views are the best, the accommodation isn't. Rooms are...

Subak Tabola is at the end of a windy (and very slippery when wet -- watch out!) road that finishes almost immediately behind Surya Shanti Villa -- it's signposted from the road. It's a simple affair with Balinese-style cottages scattered across a lawn setting. Rooms are spacious and clean and there is lots of open space, including a generous terrace veranda area. This is an isolated spot, but... Read our full review of Subak Tabola Inn.
