Blue Moon Villas is set on a headland separating two of the bays at Selang and is spread both on the beach and hill sides of the main road.
While a touch dated in style -- with towel elephants and flower petals on the bed -- rooms are very well kept. There are no fewer than 16 different accommodation types on offer, starting with standards for US$75 and moving up to a four-bedroom villa for 515 euros -- prices are quoted in dollars or euros on their site, and they do not use online travel agents like Agoda. We were only able to see one of the oceanfront suites, which was well positioned overlooking an infinity-edge pool and then, rather dramatically, the ocean well below.
The other side of the road would offer even more marvellous views, and more swimming pools as well -- four are offered on the property in total. Rooms are fitted out with amenities such as a safe, fridge, tea- and coffee-making facilities -- and somewhat rarely for Bali, solar hot water. One minus is probably the location on the off-beach side of the road and it's a bit of a steep walk down to the water's edge. That said, with the pools you may not feel the need to wander down too often.
If you're moving up towards paying more than $100 here, we'd be sure to check out Palm Resort Amed as well, as we think they have the edge in terms of finishings. In particular, the restaurant here feels a little dated.
