Accommodation

On Nusa Lembongan, Jungut Batu has the bulk of the island’s accommodation. For ease of use, we’ve separated this into Jungut Batu beachfront, Jungut Batu village and Jungut Batu headland. Tamarind Beach and Mushroom Bay are popular bays to the south and the rest we’ve collected into the catch-all western Nusa Lembongan.

Jungut Batu beachfront

Jungut Batu Beach is Nusa Lembongan’s longest. Here, along with the village beyond, is where most of the island’s accommodation is found. You’ll pay a premium for a beachfront address, and although not all beachfront digs offer sea views, you’ll still be close to the sand. Be wary: Many older rundown options rely on location only and are pricier than smarter choices a street or two back.

Very tempting Tropica Tranquility is not exactly on the beach, but across the road at Jungut Batu as it turns the corner to Mangrove Beach. Set within a compact walled enclosure, you don’t get sea views from your room in this Australian-run joint, but you can still enjoy the vista from an elevated poolside bale, and the smell and sound of the sea wafts by on the salty breeze. As they say on... Read our full review of Tropica Tranquility .

Villa Pasir have captured the salt-encrusted, sun-faded boho aesthetic perfectly with this sand-at-your-door, beach hut-style boutique hotel. Directly on the beach (really), three rooms are on offer—there may be a fourth, but it seemed to be occupied by the owner when we popped by. One (or two) have a full frontal beach view, and the two behind have partial views. We were quoted 100,000... Read our full review of Villa Pasir .

Mahagiri Resort represents the changing face of Nusa Lembongan—sadly, no longer is it the domain of ramshackle beach huts. This large, triple-storey hotel will not be everyone’s cup of salty water, but they have one of the best bits of beach on the island. The building itself is a bit of an eyesore, but the landscaping and restaurant are stylishly designed, and given its comfortable rooms... Read our full review of Mahagiri Resort .

Rama Beach Inn is the cheapest beachfront option along Jungut Batu that we saw. If it’s location you seek, this place is a winner, though the basic older-style guesthouse probably wouldn’t get a look-in if it was located a street or two back.

Jungut Batu village

Jungut Batu village offers the best value options in Nusa Lembongan. Most hotels are only a few minutes’ walk to the beach and restaurants. It can be noisy near the main road, so choose a room set back from the street if you can.

Jungut Batu headland
