Rising Star Beach Resort

Rising Star Beach Resort

No frills with a beachside setting

More on Amed

Rising Star is opposite the clutch of off-beach places towards the centre of Bunutan and is reached via a steep set of stairs beside the small restaurant that leads to a tree-filed narrow run down to the beach.

Travelfish says:

Rooms come in a couple of flavours, but the most appealling are in a two-storey building that houses four rooms (two up, two down) and overlooks the small swimming pool and out to the sea. They’re old school, but of a good size, and the friendly lady who showed us around was adamant they have the same guests returning year in, year out. Rooms are simply furnished but have glass double doors to let in the light and a couple of chairs and a small table out front. The upper floor are the better option for the privacy minded, but are (oddly) painted bright green. For the beachfront setting these are not a bad deal.
