Good value beachside villas
Villa Coral is the easternmost of the accommodation options on Jemeluk bay and is reached by a spur that runs off the main drag just before it runs up and over the hill to Lipah.
The lodgings come in two main flavours: a couple of absolute beachfront tile-roofed concrete family bungalows and a cluster of rooms in a two-storey building back off the beach. The former are the show stealers here. Split level with a loft-style second bedroom (handy for kids), the two deluxe rooms are ideal for families and look over the beach and out to the coral garden. They have comfortable decks and mini-gardens along with fancy(ish!) couches and decorative lanterns. It is worth noting, that as with all the beachfront rooms at this end of Jemeluk, the beach can be very busy -- if you’re looking for a peaceful beach getaway, maybe look elsewhere. Back off the beach and behind the restaurant, the cheaper rooms are in a two-storey building and are still quite solid value for the standard. All rooms are air-con with hot-water bathrooms but the WiFi is only in the restaurant. Don’t mix this place up with Coral View Villas on Bunutan.
