Northern end of the beach, behind Ali's Bar

At the northern end of Lakey Beach behind Ali’s Bar are a clutch of tasteful houses for rent. While we were not able to get a look inside, from outside they looked great and would be ideal for travelling families and those looking for something of a comfortable standard and with more character than the Amangati. They’re all just a short walk from the beach and are well appointed. We wouldn’t... Read our full review of Beach houses.

Easily the flashest (and most expensive) hotel lodging on Lakey Beach, Amangati offers solid hotel-standard fare that will satisfy anyone looking for creature comforts and has a bit of budget to match. The Balinese-owned hotel -- a penjor drooped out front when we walked by -- has a wide selection of rooms, from semi-basic standards to cute and comfortable bungalows that are more like shared...

The friendly family-run Kita Garden offers decent value for its standard in an off-the-beach location. Set towards the southern end of Lakey Beach (follow the trail between Fat Mah’s and Lakey Beach Inn), this Australian/Indonesian run place has a handful of longhouse-style rooms along with a freestanding room in a lush lawn and garden setting. By Lakey standards, this is a good deal -- rooms... Read our full review of Kita Garden.

Balumba sits on sprawling grounds towards the southern end of Lakey and offers a range of oversized rooms in tile-roofed concrete lodges to varying standards. We heard repeated complaints from surfers we talked to of promised air-con not working, but the friendly guy who showed us around insisted that not only did it work but it was cold too! The large twin room we were shown had two simple... Read our full review of Balumba.

If one wants to point the finger at where Lakey began, their finger would most likely be directed to this place, right at the southern end of the beach strip and run by a mercurial Frenchman. The frontpiece is a large veranda restaurant. Rooms are scattered behind it on a large lawn. Like many of the offerings in Lakey, rooms are oversized, with plenty of room for cat swinging, and each has a... Read our full review of Lakey Beach Inn.

Mona Lisa looks cute as you walk by on the beachfront, too bad the shacks are in terrible shape. It’s comprised of a long row of Thai-style wooden and tile-roofed huts basking in the shade of a coconut grove. It sounds greats and looks great from a distance, but the cute coloured huts are really in terrible shape. The bathroom of the hut we were shown was simply vile -- absolutely filthy. Some...
