Where to stay in Nusa Penida

Around Toya Pakeh

Toya Pakeh is one of the main harbour towns on Nusa Penida, leaving you within easy reach of fast boats and daily boat trips, and it is possible to snorkel in the bay as well. A range of accommodation is available and an array of restaurants and local shops are within walking distance. Toya Pakeh is the only Muslim village on the island and has an active mosque, so you will probably hear the call to prayer.

Set back from the main road at Toya Pakeh, Jati Bungalows is our top pick in this part of Nusa Penida with a handful of cute-as-a-button antique Javanese teak wood gladaks dotting a shady flower and palm-filled garden. The gorgeous dolls-house style bungalows were formally rice storage barns but have been lovingly restored and all are slightly different. Two twin rooms and three triples...

We are suckers for a view, and Semabu Hills perched up in the hills above Toya Pakeh certainly delivers the goods. The high-end resort-style hotel offers modern spacious suite-style rooms housed in a large triple-storey block facing a drop-dead gorgeous infinity swimming pool and views to Mt Agung in Bali (on a clear day). ###17152 The air-con tiled rooms provide ample cat-swinging space...

Ped

Ped sits on the north coast of Nusa Penida between Toya Pakeh and Sampalan, and it’s here that much of the backpacker accommodation is found as well as a lively bar scene and beachfront restaurants. Swimming and snorkelling are possible from the beach at high tide only.

For budget travellers, the dorms at Apit Lawang offers one of the best deals on Nusa Penida—not only is the air-con dorm clean and spacious, you get a proper spring bed (no bunks) and have use of the swimming pool shared with the pricier bungalows, and to top it off, it is a two-minute walk to the sea. For folks with a bit more of the folding stuff, the lumbung style bungalows here are a... Read our full review of Apit Lawang.

Full Moon Bungalows is Nusa Penida’s perennial backpacker favourite—the place to party and meet other travellers with a range of sleeping options in the heart of Ped village. Set behind their street front bar and restaurant with live music most nights, don’t expect to sleep early in this lively place.

Sampalan area

Sampalan is one of Nusa Penida’s largest towns, convenient if you are arriving or departing by ferry, as it’s home to a ferry port too, as well as the departure/arrival point for several fast boat companies. A growing range of decent accommodation options are spread along the nearby coastal villages for a couple of kilometres as well as several tourist-oriented restaurants.

La Roja Bungalows enjoys a lazy beach-style ambience, even though it’s a few minutes walk to the sea. This stylish midranger offers seven good-sized lumbung-style rooms surrounding a swimming pool and at the time of research (May 2018) were completing a row of smaller long-house style rooms next door (which will also have access to the pool). ###17140 The whitewashed wooden bungalows...

T: (0813) 5335 5211

Beach facing The Umah Prahu is our top flashpacker pick in Nusa Penida with four shipshape air-con rooms from which you can lie in bed and enjoy a seaview. When we say shipshape, we don’t just mean figuratively (although they are very neat and clean), they are literally shaped like small boats sailing in the ocean garden. The brick bungalows are staggered in rows down the narrow property,... Read our full review of The Umah Prahu.

Tucked away in a small lane near the ferry port, when we saw the sign pointing to a “traditional homestay” we were not expecting digs quiet as cute as Pondok Kana, and we were pleasantly surprised. Within a walled family compound, a mixed bag of rooms are dotted around the pretty garden housed in wood and thatch or brick bungalows and a brick longhouse—we were only able to view the...

Sakti area

Sakti is the most spread out area when looking for accommodation, with clusters near Crystal Bay and at the junction of the main road that heads east into the centre of the island. You’ll find everything from flashpacker to high-end options, but you may have to get transport for a feed (or not—be sure to check the location when booking in this area).

If you really want to get away from it all (well, sort of), Echo Alam Nusa Lodge is one of several guesthouses tucked away around the hills of Nusa Penida. The simple bamboo and thatch huts are a tad on the pricey side for the offer, but the views, jungle setting and rustic charm, not to mention the excellent onsite vegan restaurant, Vegan Soul Kitchen (worth eating at even if you don’t...
