Friendly and popular
Coming from the west, Warung Ary is the first of a clutch of simple and moderately priced bungalow operations on the off-beach side of the road almost opposite Bali Dream House.
There are just a few free-standing white concrete and mostly glass-fronted bungalows here, immediately behind the friendly warung that shares the same name. Bungalows are moderately sized, with a bamboo blind and surrounded by clutches of frangipani that should between them save you from the worst of the early morning sun. Pricing seems a little informal and quite a bit of thought was involved in coming up with the price we were offered for the night, so consider the listed rate highly negotiable, especially in low season. Rooms are air-con with WiFi. If full, Miss You Homestay is next door and similar, or, a little further down, Sinar Bali 1 & 2 are also decent options and have more rooms than here -- there is little to distinguish them from one another.
