Where to stay in Medewi

Medewi

Accommodation options in Medewi are dived into four distinct areas: right on the point, where you’ll pay more across the board, back in the village where friendly homestays offer rice field views, but still a short walk or scooter ride to the waves or either along the coast to the south around the villages of Pulukan and Pekutatan or the fast-growing area to the north along Yeh Sumbul Beach with several good value guesthouses and its own surfable waves.


Pekutatan
1,000,000 to 2,500,000 Rp
Puri Dajuma
Toprange - 1,000,000 to 2,500,000 Rp
Pekutatan
T: (0811) 388 709

For a luxurious get-away-from-it-all in dreamy traditional Balinese style, look no further than Puri Dajuma, but you’ll need deep pockets (or a wealthy and generous aunt) for these digs. Five kilometres by road to the south of Medewi point break or less than two as the crow flies, this splendid beachfront hotel offers a range of cottages and villas, two swimming pools, three restaurants and...

For folks who love camping but also enjoy the comforts of a decent bed and hot shower (TF writer raises hand), Bali Tiger may be just the ticket. At the far northern end of Yeh Sumbul Beach, scarcely metres from the sea, Bali Tiger is one of the cutest guesthouses we’ve come across in a while, and is one of our top picks for flashpackers in the Medewi area. Assorted beach huts line this... Read our full review of Bali Tiger.

Jalan Pantai, Pulukan
150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Kirra’s Beach House
Flashpacker - 150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Jalan Pantai, Pulukan
T: (0817) 051 8557

Just south of the Medewi Point break in Pulukan, Kirra’s Beach House scores superb beach and rice paddy views from its second storey communal lounge and not bad views from the modest rooms to boot. On offer are four tiled air-con rooms, three with ensuite and one with an outside, but private bathroom, along with a communal kitchen and the upstairs lounge and terrace. The three ensuite rooms...

Kampung Baru, Medewi
150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Pink Barrel
Flashpacker - 150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Kampung Baru, Medewi
T: (0857) 3835 3865

If you can’t see the waves, the next best thing is a rice paddy view, and set back in Medewi village, just over one kilometre from the beach a handful of friendly homestays offer not only views but genuine Balinese hospitality, and while we were torn as to our preferred option, Pink Barrel got our vote. Set at the back of a family compound, Pink Barrel just edges in simply for the fact that... Read our full review of Pink Barrel.

Jalan Pantai Bahari, Yeh Sumbul
400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
Sea Medewi
Midrange - 400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
Jalan Pantai Bahari, Yeh Sumbul

Sea Medewi offers decent value rooms in a resort style hotel facing the beach at Yeh Sumbul. Behind the double-storey lobby with restaurant above, two neat rows of cute red brick duplex cottages face a swimming pool, and further back, with a short climb up some stairs, duplex ocean-view rooms are staggered up the small slope. Climbing further back the long narrow property, the upper level... Read our full review of Sea Medewi.

Umadewi
Midrange - 400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
Jalan Pantai Medewi, Medewi Beach
T: (0878) 6326 0595

Roll out of bed and into the sea at Umadewi, located right on the point break at Medewi Beach. This comfortable four-star hotel was undergoing an upgrade when we visited in late July 2018 and due to its competitive rates (possibly owing to the ongoing reno), just had the edge on its also excellent neighbour, Bombora Medewi Wave Lodge. Don’t be put off by the reception area as that is still... Read our full review of Umadewi.

Mai Malu
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp

Budget surfers don’t have much choice in Medewi, and while we did note a couple of online deals with rooms less than 150,000 rupiah, no one was around at any of them to view these places, and of the meagre offerings we saw, Mai Malu was easily the cleanest, nevertheless we’d have one less Bintang and cough up a little more for a tad more comfort. But we know, sometimes a budget is a... Read our full review of Mai Malu.
