Reasonable off beach option
Rooms at Acarya are a mix of freestanding cottages and rooms in blocks scattered across the hillside, with the blocks having one room upstairs and one down.
The upper rooms obviously have the better views while the lower ones have easier access to the mid-sized swimming pool that sits just behind Acarya’s small restaurant. Decks are a decent size and the room we were shown was very clean. All rooms offer air-con, hot water showers and free WiFi. Acarya is right beside Beten Waru and there is really little to separate the two, both in terms of style and price, and both offer reasonable value for money, so if one is full, try the other. If you want something a little more spendy, Anugerah Villas is 100 metres down the road to the east and is better in almost every way. Acarya’s website was unavailable when we reviewed it but they can be booked direct by email or phone or online through various online booking agents.
