Taman Sari Guesthouse

Taman Sari Guesthouse

Great view, great coffee

More on Munduk

Set in a friendly family compound, the two large spotless rooms at Taman Sari Guesthouse offer fabulous views at an excellent flashpacker rate.

Travelfish says:

It’s well located in the centre of Munduk, next to the family’s small coffee roasting and grinding business.

Sparking tiled rooms are in mint condition, if a little bland. Unadorned cream walls look fresh and bright in the light-filled rooms. Solid dark wooden beds provide good mattresses and a crisp white sheet and blanket, however we didn’t see a top sheet. Matching bedside table, lamp and draw-unit are in the same dark wood. There’s plenty of room for the yoga inclined to practise while gazing out over the jungle. The simple tiled ensuite hot-water bathroom is in the same pristine condition as the rest of the room and provides modern amenities. We love the private balcony, furnished with wooden chairs and a table and trimmed with a pretty planter box of small colourful plants. Beyond a few rusty rooftops below, the views extend to the ocean. Breakfast is included and we bet the coffee is excellent. We get the impression there’s no WiFi (they were confused we were asking about a website), however several nearby restaurants will get you connected. The grandfather here is a local traditional healer, but speaks no English.

The only negative about this great little homestay is that it’s a bit hard to pre-book, as they’re not on any booking sites, don’t have email or a website, and the lady who runs the place has limited English if you call (although some family members have good English). We’d recommend wandering in and trying your luck; at the least you could try a freshly roasted coffee.

Note: The travelfish.org researcher who stopped here is friends with the family.

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.
