Three Brothers Bungalows

Our rating:

Disconnect from busy life and busy Legian streets to experience a little of old-school Bali at Three Brothers Bungalows. The sprawling established tropical gardens conceal a mixed bag of rooms, some in standalone bungalows, others in traditional red brick, double-storey buildings embellished with Balinese carving. Even though there are more than 60 rooms, it feels small and personal.

Spacious interiors are as varied as room options: some a little dark and gloomy, others open and light filled, but all offer Balinese ambience and stacks of charm.

Choose from fan-cooled or air-con rooms, all with hot-water bathrooms, some with tubs, some enclosed and others outdoor-style. Rooms are looking a little tired, so don’t expect slick mod-cons, but it’s somewhat part of Three Brothers’ charm (stay at a chain hotel if that’s your requirement).

We didn’t view all styles of rooms, but we particularly liked the double-storey fan rooms with the thatch-roofed second floor open to the garden and a mosquito net canopied four-poster bed floating mid-room (a little like camping in the tropical jungle). The lower level also houses a mozzie-netted bed, but let us down a little with a rusty fridge and threadbare furniture. The outdoor bathroom with tub and mini garden is appealing though.

Austere and rustic romance.

The large wonky-kidney-shaped swimming pool feels like a jungle lagoon, shimmering blue and shaded by palms. Broken paving tiles around the edge are a bit of a shame, but once you’ve stretched out on one of the sun lounges, you’ll hardly notice. Included breakfast is served in the hotel’s friendly restaurant street-side on Jalan Padma Utara.

We have a soft spot for Three Brothers Bungalows, but some rooms could do with a little love. The somewhat rustic style is not for everybody, but if you’d like a relaxing place to soak up some Bali vibes, it’s a good option. Confusingly the main entrance for checking in is in a small back lane, not at the signposted entrance on busier Jalan Padma Utara. For upgraded rooms with a little Bali charm (although lacking the stunning garden) consider Baleka Resort or Puri Damai.
