Amid the coconut trees and set back a little from the black-sand beach at Jasri, Pondok Shanti Agung’s bright yellow house and friendly staff await. Originally set up as a yoga resort by an Australian couple to support the local village, and run by a local family, they offer a range of rooms from basic huts with a share bathroom to the whole house.

It’s pretty adorable.

Entering through the arched gateway, a small lotus pond and Ganesh statue sit between a large open yellow bungalow facing the sea to the right, and three lumbung-style huts to the left.

Very dippable.

The ground floor of the double-storey house presents a spacious tiled open living area that’s cool, relaxing and inviting, with lots of rugs, comfy cushions and lounging areas. A wide veranda provides more lounges plus a wooden slab table with benches that could comfortably seat 12. Directly in front, a long narrow swimming pool is well suited for a lap or two. A large open-plan and fully functional kitchen occupies the area behind. Leading from the living area are two separate fan-cooled bedrooms. A double room with ensuite bathroom looks out to sea and is tastefully and comfortably furnished with a batik bedcover and bronze Buddha lamps atop teak bedside drawers. The hot-water bathroom is clean, furnished with natural finishings and textures, including a lovely carved teak window. A twin room with a door leading to one of the outside share bathrooms has similar styling. The rooms are available individually, or you can rent the whole house.

The stuff of dreamy afternoons.

In the garden, three raised fan-cooled wooden huts provide a good quality spring mattress on the floor. It’s all you really need: simple and basic, but clean, solidly built and light filled. Under the huts a shaded platform makes a cosy reading retreat. Two shared hot-water bathrooms, one with a separate toilet, are clean and tastefully decorated, one with a tinkling seashell curtain entrance — probably some of the best share bathrooms we’ve seen.

Bring books!

The entire top floor of the bungalow comprises an open yoga studio. There’s no yoga teacher on site, but rather it’s a case of bring-your-own, or do-it-yourself, but they run fully inclusive yoga retreats here a couple of times a year.

No resort is complete with hammocks.

Pondok Shanti Agung is a relaxing place to really get away from it all — there is NO WiFi here. Enjoy some yoga by the sea, or remove yourself from the world for a few days. It’s a little out of the way so hard to find, but staff can provide transport on request.

To find Pondok Shanti Agung, coming from Candi Dasa, as you enter Amlapura, just past the statue of a large white bull, a turnoff to the right is marked with a red and white “vacancy” sign, and a blue banner that says “surf break”. Continue along this road, following signs for Bali Chocolate. Pondok Shanti Agung is next door to Bali Chocolate (bonus!) From Amlapura, the turnoff is just beyond the petrol station on the left.
