Best budget view
Puri Sawah is the best budget offering close to Taman Tirta Gangga.
Four rooms in two large double-storey bungalows each with wide verandas and magnificent views of the surrounding rice paddies. Large clean rooms come with solid bamboo furnishings and a standard fan. Beds are smartly decorated with coloured runners and matching cushions and there’s handy bedside tables and lamps. Some rooms are bamboo-walled others are painted brick. All have dark-coloured floor tiles which stylishly contrast with the furnishings. You are either going to love or hate the bathrooms — they are tiled in a very unusual loud green and white pattern reminiscent or an old school composition book. Corners are a little grimly, but otherwise they are clean. One room comes with hot-water and a bath tub, the others cold-water showers and mandi only. Spacious verandas and balconies have comfortable furnishings — and did we mention the view?
Breakfast is included, there’s free WiFi, and the attached restaurant gets pretty good reviews — and has a great view. Puri Sawah is a five minute walk to Taman Tirta Gangga, but be warned coming back — they have a steep driveway. For a slightly higher price, Geria Semalung Bungalows, up the hill, have better rooms.

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.
