Spotless but isolated spot
Set midway between Eka Purnama and Selang Dive Resort, Paradise Bungalow offers spotless concrete bungalows scattered across the hillside on the off-ocean side of the road.
Rooms are very clean and well looked after and offer great views out and over the sea. There is a swimming pool on site, but it is on the small side for this many rooms, and, given there is no beach here (Banyuning is closest, about ten minutes on foot) you’ll probably be spending some time in the pool. Staff are chatty, friendly and enthusiastic and, if you don’t mind the isolated location, this isn’t a bad deal. All rooms have hot water bathrooms, air-con and WiFi and it isn’t too far to Banyuning. There is a restaurant on site. Check online for discounted rates, especially in low season.
