Set back from the main road at Toya Pakeh, Jati Bungalows is our top pick in this part of Nusa Penida with a handful of cute-as-a-button antique Javanese teak wood gladaks dotting a shady flower and palm-filled garden.

The gorgeous dolls-house style bungalows were formally rice storage barns but have been lovingly restored and all are slightly different. Two twin rooms and three triples (double plus a single) sport comfy wooden mosquito-netted beds (although the nets were all at the laundry when we visited). Spring mattresses are made up with clean white linen and cotton ikat blankets enhance the traditional Indonesian features. Bedtime readers will be happy with the bedside tables and lamps.

Simply furnished and immaculate.

Rooms are fan cooled, and although seemingly small, we found the fans very efficient. Windows of the traditional buildings are wooded shuttered with no glass, and rooms are dark when closed—good for sleeping, but decent lighting means you won’t be fumbling about and with the shutters open the interiors are bright and airy. Tea-making facilities are provided in the room, and guests are free to use a communal fridge if needed.

Spotless ensuite bathrooms are open style with hot-water showers—lovely for a wash under the stars on a breezy night. Each bungalow harbours a furnished terrace to enjoy the pretty garden. Jacquie, the Western owner is a wealth of knowledge and not only does she provide a very informative booklet in the rooms she can offer all kinds of advice and recommendations for things to do, places to go and spots to eat as well as help arrange tours and transport (say Hi from us!—We got to know her during our stay).

We love the style of the bungalows.

Breakfast is not included but Dapur Kue Hamzah, a local warung at the end of the street does a very good nasi campur as well as Western breakfasts for low prices. Jati Bungalows is walking distance to Toya Pakeh harbour and several fastboat companies as well as one of the island’s best restaurants, Ba’Bar Kitchen among others.

Toya Pakeh is the only Muslim village on the island, and you do hear the nearby mosque from the bungalows—pack earplugs if you are not planning on getting up to pray. If you would prefer a beachside location, The Umah Prahu near Sampalan is our pick.

The compact garden gives Jati a village feel.
