Aashaya Jasri

Classic Bali, modern comforts

More on Amlapura

On peaceful beachfront at Jasri, Aashaya Jasri Resort is one the loveliest midrange village-like hotels in East Bali. Aashaya Jasri oozes classical understated elegance with a relaxed atmosphere and style. A range of rooms in five traditional buildings, all with modern comforts, are well spread out around a gorgeous manicured lawn that leads to the sea.

The money shot.

At the rear of the property, a two-storey thatched teak lumbung is the largest of the traditional houses. Downstairs two twin rooms have separate access, and upstairs, accessed through a communal lounge, a twin and a triple room. Alongside the swimming pool, the second largest building has two separate rooms — a triple and a single. The triple room has a screened area for one of the beds, making it ideal for a family. The three other rooms are doubles, our favourite being the one closest to the ocean where you can lay in bed and listen to the waves — yes please!

The rocky beach is located directly across a small, quiet road and as in most of this area, too rough for swimming — perhaps a paddle for the more adventurous at the right tide. The hotel staff should be able to advise you.

Ah, the serenity.

Rooms throughout the hotel have private hot-water ensuite bathrooms, ceiling fans, air-con and mosquito nets. Classic Bali styling varies from room to room, but all feature traditional textures and textiles — think rattan, bamboo, batik and teakwood. Every detail is considered and done well — it feels very authentic. Beds are mostly four-poster and are super comfortable, with beautiful quality linens. Our only criticism is that the single beds seem narrow. Rooms are bright and breezy and spotlessly clean with a wonderful sense of space, even in the smaller rooms.

Crisp and tasteful.

The small clean swimming pool is fine for idling about in — who wants to do laps anyway? Sun-lounges, umbrellas and a small bale provide shade and a place to unwind. The spa is positioned right at the oceanfront so you can breathe the sea air while being pampered. A large open bale houses the popular restaurant, which is open to the public. WiFi and breakfast is included. The hotel has a no-smoking policy.

Bali style.

Aashaya Jasri Resort is a real treat for those looking for a tranquil escape to real Bali from the more frenzied tourist areas. It’s great for families with several mix-and-match room options, a romantic escape for couples and the one single room means solo travellers who are after a bit of luxury don’t have to pay for two.

The food is good, too.

Aashaya Jasri Resort was formally Irene’s Homestay; plenty of signposts all over East Bali will lead you there.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
