Meditasi Bungalows

Get back to nature

What we say: 4 stars

The bungalows here are reminiscent of old beach shacks on a breezy isolated coast and if that is what you are after, this is the real deal. The elevated bungalows run in a row off to the west of the broad, over sized and very welcoming restaurant, the frames are solid, but the bungalows are mostly bamboo, with large decks overlooking the ocean. The beds are large and have good, clean linen. The bathrooms are outdoors and open to the elements: some have rockery, others have tiles. The large veranda comes with an oversized daybed on which many guests sleep overnight as there are allegedly no mosquitoes here thanks to the sea breeze. Meditasi run a daily cooking class that kicks off at 11:00 (they can pick you up and drop you off if you are staying elsewhere and book in advance). While we didn't eat here, we have heard very good things about the food. Yoga is also conducted every day at 17:00 on the lawns and snorkelling possibilities lie right off the beach. Everything about this place gives a feel of being closer to nature. There is no WiFi and no TV. Aas is a pebbly beach and the sound of the waves rolling over them is soothing in its own way. A good chilled out hideaway -- meditative almost! Author Elizabeth Gilbert described Meditasi as "the most romantic hotel on earth" and is apparently a fan of room number 7.
