Waeni’s offers rooms in a couple of tiers overlooking Bunutan Bay with absolutely spectacular views.
The views are so great that the open-air restaurant and bar does a roaring trade come sunset, when the views across the bay with Gunung Agung in the distance are just breathtaking -- this is THE viewpoint for Bunutan. The rooms, it must be said, are not nearly as breathtaking as the views -- not even close in fact -- but they’ll do at a pinch. They’re simple fare with wood-based beds, a soft mattress and a decorative mosquito net. Air-con and WiFi come standard. There’s a few sticks of furniture and the bathrooms are, well, basic. Overall, for the standard, the room rate is a little high, but you’re really paying for the view. Even if you don’t stay here, be sure to swing by for a sunset (arrive before 17:00 to score a well positioned beanbag).
