Echoland B&B

Echoland B&B

Stylish and compact with a roof terrace

More on Canggu

Spitting distance from Echo beach, Echoland B&B offers a range of small, simple and stylish rooms surrounding a decked swimming pool and a terrific rooftop restaurant / bar / yoga space in a two-storey block (plus the roof).

Travelfish says:

Rooms are air-con or fan-cooled (the same room, just at different rate) and deluxe rooms are a little more spacious than the somewhat compact standard rooms. We didn’t view them, but they offer a 3-bed female dorm and 4-bed mixed dorm for budget travellers, we’re informed with single beds rather than bunks.

Polished cement floors, white-painted exposed-brick walls, simple teak panel bed head, and wooden venetian blinds all combine to give the spotless rooms a smart contemporary feel. Comfortable double or twin beds sport quality white linen, and you can watch the small wall-mounted TV from bed, put your book on the bedside tables and see it with the reading lamps. Balinese style cravings or artwork add a bit of local flavour.

Rooms are a little dark as most only provide a narrow window with not much of an outlook over the pool, but conducive for sleep. Tiny ensuite hot-water bathrooms are semi-outdoors, which keeps them fresh and bright, and showers are a bamboo spout rather than a shower head. We like that they supply water for teeth cleaning in glass bottles rather than plastic.

The narrow swimming pool runs the length of the rooms, but isn’t all that large and the only place to sit is directly on the decking in front of the rooms (no deckchairs) or one tiny couch in the corner, however it’s appealing and refreshing with a lovely aqua-green colour and shady frangipanis.

Echoland’s relaxing top-floor terrace gives this hotel the edge, comfy couches or the slab wooden table make a pleasant spot to eat your included breakfast (not included for dorms), or join one of the (irregular) yoga classes, or you can always downward dog alone. Very friendly staff are happy to organise surfing and other activities and adventures. Given the excellent location, we think Echoland B&B is a good deal and so do many others as it’s often booked out.

If that’s the case, you could try nearby smart and modern A7 guesthouse in Jalan Munduk Catu or for more space and somewhat standard style, Ecosfera around the corner. A little further from the beach, Sedasa offers a similar set up to Echoland with larger rooms, pool and rooftop, also with friendly staff.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. 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.
