If you plan on trekking around Lake Tamblingan, you can’t go wrong staying at nearby midrange Terrasse du Lac Tamblingan Sari, if it’s within your budget.

Travelfish says:

There are just two homely rooms, which offer a comfortable sleep -- they boast fireplaces to warm up the chilly mountain evening. That's right, cosy wood fireplaces inside the room -- bet you didn't think you’d find that in Bali!

One and a half kilometres up the hill from the entrance to Tamblingan Nature Recreation Park, and about six kilometres southeast from Munduk village, the bungalows at Terrasse perch on the slopes amid a pretty garden below their popular restaurant, which overlooks the lake.

Although without a lake view, the rooms face west over picturesque valleys and enjoy stunning sunsets too. Tiled spacious rooms are tastefully decorated, furnished with a comfy queen sized bed along with a daybed covered in colourful cushions, and there’s plenty of room for another extra bed if needed — excellent for families. The modern styling is simple, but offers great little extras such as batik bathrobes. Spotless hot-water bathrooms are smart with abundant room for toiletries and towels, and power outlets where you need them too. A roomy terrace provides a couple of wooden table and chairs with a partially obscured views, but it’s still rather lovely, although you kind of wish they had turned them 90 degrees.

Wander back through the pretty flowers to the restaurant where friendly staff whip up Indonesian and French-influenced meals. Local organic red rice wine is available by the bottle as well as a selection of jamu (traditional tonics). Staff can help with trekking and transport and offer cooking classes. They mentioned they are planning on building a pool in the near future. We think Terrasse du Lac Tamblingan Sari is great, but it’s a little remote and unless you have your own transport, you’ll be eating in their restaurant for every meal (which may not be a bad thing).

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.
