Puri Pandan offers two rows of sweet thatched bamboo and brick bungalows sitting staggered either side of a path leading to a seaside restaurant. A very pretty and fragrant garden full of tropical flowers weaves its way all around the bungalows and down to the sea.

Sweet!

Puri Pandan offers twin and double rooms with either fan or air-con. Rooms are older, yet well maintained, cosy and clean — if a little small and dark. White painted brick and bamboo walls lighten and freshen the room. Along one side, a row of small casement windows, with rather twee hourglass curtains, opens to a small courtyard garden that’s lush in some rooms, and almost non-existent in others — the gardens really do brighten the rooms, so ask for one with a garden. Oddly, there are no windows at the front of the bungalow which some may find claustrophobic.

A view to wake up to.

The very comfortable bed has a stylish lattice wooden bedhead and is decorated daily with fresh flowers. White sheets are clean, but pillowcases a little yellowed. An ikat bedcover complements the natural textures in the room and adds local colour. The bed takes up almost the entire space, a small bedside table narrowly squeezes in, and a built-in combined wardrobe-luggage-rack-desk unit lines the side. A good sized mirror adds dimension creating the feeling of a larger room.

Fairly private verandas for hanging out on.

The fan rooms have only a standard fan, and there is not a lot of breeze. We thought it was adequately ventilated, but some may find the rooms stuffy — if that’s the case, go for an air-con room.

A semi-outdoor bathroom comes with a bath tub in some rooms, and just a shower in others. Pressure is good and the water is hot. Bathrooms are roomy and there are plenty of hooks and places to store toiletries Tiles are a bit old and stained and could do with a good scrub, but are not dirty.

The stuff of tropical dreams, really.

The wide veranda with a comfortable cushioned wooden bench and low table, decorated with large shells and bowls of flowers, makes a pleasant outdoor living area. A white painted lattice bamboo screen gives privacy and makes it more room-like. This would be a lovely spot to while away a balmy evening breathing in the tropical fragrances.

Facing the beach, and blocking any would-be ocean view from the bungalows, a large ocean-front restaurant does a roaring trade. This seems to be the main business here. It is a very pretty setting, and where the included breakfast is served. Breakfast choices are predominately Indonesian, but you can pay extra for more Western choices. The bubur injin — black rice porridge — is worth giving up on the bacon and eggs for a day.

Breakfast with a view.

Fast free WiFi is available both in the restaurant and the bungalows. There’s no swimming pool, but this is one of the few ocean-front hotels in Candi Dasa to actually have a bit of sandy beach. Local fishermen ply their trade and offer snorkel and fishing trips from here, too.

These towel animals breed when we aren’t watching, we’re pretty sure.

Sweet and charming Puri Pandan is an excellent flashpacker option. Rooms are quite a step up from the more budget offerings nearby, yet it’s still affordable and offers good discounts for walk-ins. For bigger, flashier rooms and a pool, try next door at Relax Beach Resort. You’ll find Puri Pandan tucked behind a traditional Balinese gate on the main road.
