Where to stay in Bukit

Balangan

Balangan offers a handful of flashpacker through to high end accommodation on the cliff behind the beach, many of which are popular with families. Bamboo shacks on the sand are not always the cheapest option, but they are close to the waves. For better value budget choices, walk back a little along the beach access road. A secondary development of mid to top-range places is perched on the bluff to the east.

As you arrive into the cliff-top section of Balangan, one of the first places you will encounter is Flower Bud 2 Bungalows and our advice is to continue no further (except to the beach of course). This is the newer sister property of Flower Bud Bungalows a little further along the road. Lining a lovely tree-filled tropical garden, gnarly wood and thatch bungalows sit either side of the path...
