Lie in bed and watch the crashing waves from the top floor rooms at Pondok Nyoman Bagus Guesthouse, or just listen to them from the ground floor, either way, you’re as close as you’re going to get to the ocean in this price range in Canggu.

Plus you can imbibe even more of the sensational sweeping view from the rooftop infinity pool and bar. Housed in a double-storey block, all rooms face towards the sea, however the ground floor view is completely blocked by an unattractive cement wall, hence the second-storey rooms with floor to ceiling windows and furnished balconies are really the only ones worth considering.

Aside from the fantastic location the tiled air-con rooms are light and bright, but a bit tired, however with enough comforts for the view to outweigh any negatives. Golden-coloured wooden bedhead panels and built-in desk and fittings along with pretty blue and white bedcovers are tasteful, but ill-maintained with chipped furnishings and greying linen, however the rooms are clean. Amenities include a mini-bar, tea making facilities and a small TV. Ensuite hot-water bathrooms are basic and clean, but a little stained.

Grab a coldie from the min-bar, prop yourself up on one of the chairs on the balcony and relish the scenery, and when it gets too warm, drag yourself upstairs to the fabulous pool with the waves stretching out below, however be sure to slip, slop, slap as it’s very exposed or laze in a shaded sun lounge instead.

The restaurant serves up a decent view too as well as local and Western favourites plus your included breakfast. Live music plays most evenings, and late on Fridays and Saturdays, which is great if you want to party, but not ideal if you want an early sleep, as the sound can be heard in the room.

Staff are friendly and all round, Pondok Nyoman Bagus Guesthouse is a decent good value option, just don’t expect perfect. If you’re after a better deal, (with a higher price tag) nearby Lautan Kupu Kupu Villa is a luxurious offer and some rooms have sea views. Or if you’d just like a basic bed in this quieter area of Canggu, check out the dorms at EHomestay or The Hideout Hostel.
