Wawa Wewe II

Decent value air-con rooms

What we say: 4 stars

Wawe Wewe II is the best of the midrange properties along the rocky headland that stretches between Bunutan and Lipah, with two rows of comfortable bungalows running down to a seaview freeform swimming pool and restaurant. The ocean is perhaps a five-metre drop from the pool but is easily reached via a flight of stairs for the more determined swimmers or for low-tide fossickers.

Now that is a pool with a view.

If you’re looking for sand you can relax on, outside of low tide you’ll need to walk to Lipah, 10 minutes’ away, but when the waters are calm and the tide high, you can go swimming and snorkelling here. Resort grounds are well shaded and each bungalow has a pleasant terrace out front, with the family bungalows having comfortable daybeds.

Just another sunrise.

Rooms are air-con and very well sized – the family rooms have a loft, ideal for children, though do note that the steps down have no railing, so are not so hot for young kids (our seven and eight year old were fine). Tiled floors are throughout, while facilities include a safe and the reasonably comfortable bed comes with bed lamps and some shelving if you want to settle in. There are no TVs. Bathrooms are outdoors with warm water showers and a Western toilet. The walls around the bathrooms are quite low!

Rooms are simple.

The swimming pool is a good depth and there are two massage pavilions right by the ocean should you need a rubdown. The restaurant sits on the other side of the pool and offers great sunrise views and a limited sunset view depending on the time of the year. The food, for Amed, is reasonable and proportions decent. WiFi is available in the restaurant but doesn’t reach any but the front rooms, though there is a decent 3G signal. Management are friendly and helpful.

Low tide fossicking.

This is an all-round good choice for those on a flashpacker budget, but the 200,000 rupiah per child is an excessive charge for families, especially given the simple breakfast. Double One Villas is next door to the west and offers a similar setup, with similar rates, but we preferred the more jungly atmosphere here. Villa Coral on Jemeluk is also a good family option in this price bracket. Either will do at a pinch. For a real splurge, assuming the owner is away, consider Villa Bukit Segara about 100 metres to the east of here towards Lipah.
