Bumbu Bali is best known for its fabulous Balinese restaurants and cooking school, but its associated bed and breakfast, Rumah Bali, isn't too shabby either.
The property is unassuming from the carpark, but as you walk back, and back, you'll quickly realise this is a beautiful spot spread across a vast property on the off-beach side of Jalan Pratama. There is a large open-air function area (which is also used for some of the cooking courses) followed by the restaurant and then the swimming pool and accommodation. Many of the rooms are in two-storey configurations and are oversized, with plenty of space and good views over the gardens and pool. Teak-furnished, the rooms are attractively fitted out and, by Nusa Dua standards, these are exceptional value. The one minus is that you're a long walk from the beach -- but hey, the pool is right there! Very friendly, English-speaking staff. Recommended.
