Newly opened in January 2016 but a little hard to find, Tiing Bali Guest House is tucked away at the bottom of a track on terraced farmland, where three cute bamboo bungalows with corrugated iron roofs, line up in a neat cliffside row.

Photo of Tiing Bali Guest House
The view of Gunung Agung from here is hard to beat and the shaded verandas offer bamboo chairs and table from which to admire the scenery. Rooms are basic within, but clean and adequate. Disappointing that the bamboo theme doesn’t continue to the interior furniture — it’s cheap particle wood, but gives you somewhere to hang you coat. Beds sport quality spring mattresses and linen is clean (blankets are supplied for when the temperature drops). A tiny flat screen TV offers something to do if you tire of the view while small local paintings add a bit of colour. Bathrooms are compact and simple, but clean and provide a hot-water shower — much needed in these cooler parts of Bali.

The friendly family who run Tiing Bali Guest House are very accommodating, and can drop you at the start of the volcano trek, and also organise a good trekking deal. The lady doesn’t speak much English, but her husband’s is good. A light breakfast of tea or coffee and Balinese cakes is included and WiFi is free.

To find the guest house: from Penelokan take Jalan Windu Sara, the main road that leads down to the lake, as you turn the first bend, just before Amerta Sari Hotel, a small road leads to the left. Continue for about 600 metres where a narrow road leads off to the right. Three hundred metres down the hill you’ll find Tiing Bali. Note that there are many barking dogs along the path — If that worries you call ahead for a free pickup if you are on foot.

We were offered 225,000 rupiah as a walk-in rate and think that’s hard to beat in the area. The only negative (or positive) is its out of the way location. Recommended. If you can’t get a room at Tiing Bali — try at Sari Organik, however the bathrooms there are shared.
