This top notch romantic spot offers four private bungalows and two deluxe rooms (connecting to become one which can sleep six) surrounding a cliff-edge infinity pool, perfect for sipping a cocktail while watching the reddening sky. Stone and thatch air-con rooms are spacious and light flooded, open style with a ton of glass, and although the resort itself is secluded, a couple of the front rooms which nab the best views are not the most private (hello fishbowl).

Comfy and spacious rooms.

The style is understated and calm with natural finishes and luxury bedding. Billowing mozzie nets up the romance and open-style hot-water bathrooms offer jungle views, some with sunken tubs which we think are enchanting, but for some modest folk may be a little too au naturel. Mao and Paz, the interconnecting rooms joined by a massive wood sliding door, can be booked separately or together. Both rooms are decked out with king-sized beds and one with the addition of built-in bunks sharing the sleeping area with the other bed. Amenities in all rooms include a safe and minibar but TV addicts will have to stick to their devices. Wide, furnished terraces are an appealing spot to while away an afternoon with a book.

The moderately–sized and round lagoon style pool offers ample shady (or sunny) lounges and beanbags and the onsite open thatched cafe offers all-day dining and here you can enjoy your included breakfast or have it delivered to your terrace. Staff are charming, unobtrusive and professional.

The rooms are not crammed in.

If you get bored with La Cabane’s pool and restaurant, simply move next door to La Joya 2 Biu Biu which is open to the public, but watch out for the selfie sticks! And if you desire a morning stretch or a pummelling, they offer daily yoga classes and a spa.

La Cabane is a ten-minute walk to Balangan Beach, or a climb down the cliff to secluded Biu Biu. La Cabane is a dreamy micro-resort with a bag of appeal, and though open-style tropical living may sound romantic, the reality is not for everyone—expect to meet a few local critters in your room.

Honeymooners after a little more privacy may wish to consider Uluwatu Surf Villas with private pools, but you’ll need deeper pockets or if you prefer a more family orientated resort, busy La Joya at Balangan Beach (as well as the one next door) are worth a look. Lower budget options include Milo’s Home next door, and Flower Bud 2 Bungalows or Balangan Sea View Bungalow, both at Balangan Beach.
