Positioned a little uphill between Tamarind Beach and Mushroom Bay, sweet and stylish Kakiang Guesthouse is a short walk to either.

This family-run guesthouse opened with three rooms in 2016 and added another two in 2017. Edging a small but deep swimming pool, the older rooms are housed in a brick triplex, and the newer—a twin and a double—in a whitewashed wooden duplex, with a connecting door.

Quiet enchanting.

Rooms are a decent size and spotless, the brick with pale tiled floors and fresh pale neutral walls, and the wood with, well wood—whitewashed on the walls and dark stained floors. Beds sport thick mattresses and quality linens add a luxurious feel, but the sheets were too overly perfumed (washing powder not unclean) for our liking, but some may find this a pleasant addition. Bedside tables and lamps always make us happy, and the brick rooms add a small desk, but the furnished balconies overlooking the pretty garden in all styles of rooms makes an agreeable outdoor office if you must.

Amenities include tea- and coffee-making facilities and hairdryers, and the brick rooms add a small flatscreen TV and DVD player. Ensuite bathrooms provide hot-water showers—pretty outdoor-style ones with bamboo and pebbles in the wood rooms, and more basic tiled indoor-style in the brick rooms. Although the water pressure is strong and hot, it’s very salty here.

Now that is a mattress.

The guesthouse is in the village, so expect village noises—dogs, pigs, kids— and the walls of the wooden bungalows are rather thin so light sleepers should pack earplugs.

The pool is a welcome sight after a day of sightseeing, with a couple of shaded beanbags offering a poolside laze. Breakfast, beers and light snacks are available, and pleasant to enjoy in the poolside dining area. Climb the stairs above the reception where a small terrace is a terrific (but unshaded) spot to survey the surrounding area and spy Gunung Agung in the distance.

Kakiang Guesthouse’s owner speaks excellent English, and he and staff are friendly and helpful. This is an excellent flashpacker option in this part of town. If they are fully booked, The Syron Huts towards Tamarind Beach offers a similar but pricier deal.
