Cheap off beach rooms with a view

More on Amed

Bintang Homestay offers a clutch of rooms atop a same-named shopfront on the road between Bunutan and Lipah beaches.

Travelfish says:

The rooms are simple (and a bit stuffy) but the views out and over the ocean are great and totally unobstructed (no power cables!) and each room has a small veranda to enjoy the views from. Facilities are simple: there’s a comfortable bed, four walls and a cool water bathroom. All rooms are fan-cooled. There’s no beach immediate to here; Bunutan and Lipah are each about a 15-minute walk away, but there is a scraggly trail from more or less in front of Anda Amed if you just need to get wet and don’t require a strip of sand. You’ll catch some noise from the passing traffic below, but that drops off very early evening and is never that busy anyway. There’s no reception, so just ask at the shop below the rooms -- don’t hesitate to ask for a discount for a stay longer than a few nights. When we asked for a business card with contact details they told us to book via, so we guess you should just do that!
