Taman Selini Beach Bungalows

Sophisticated and relaxing, Taman Selini Beach Bungalows oozes the magic of bygone Bali. Amid well manicured established gardens, full of fragrant frangipani trees, 11 traditional thatched bungalows offer an excellent value seaside stay.

Carved teak doors open to the simple, yet stylishly elegant air-con rooms. A four-poster bed is romantically strewn with flowers, and the antique writing desk invites you to whip out your leather-bound journal — it’s authentic and charming. Spacious, but slightly mossy garden bathrooms provide hot-water showers. Woven bamboo and rattan accessories add to the charm, but the plastic water bottles detract a little — glass would be much nicer, but we’re being picky.

Not for full-time rent, sadly.

Wide and shady balconies are decked out with canopied daybeds for the incline inclined, and comfortable vertical seated options. Wander towards the sea where nearby the generously sized and shady stone-clad swimming pool invites you into its turquoise depths, or continue to the black volcanic sand beach and snorkel the reef. Turn left and head for the library with its high thatched ceiling, intricacy carved doors and large collection waiting to be read — you have time, you’re on holidays.

Muster-up to the breezy seaside restaurant pavilion for home cooked local dishes or a touch of Greek cooking (guessing that’s a nod to the Hellenic moon goddess, Selene). Whatever appeals, Taman Selini Beach Bungalows is an excellent spot to unwind.

A few laps or a few chapters, the choice is yours.

We love it and could move in tomorrow, but be aware the authenticity of open-style living means you may encounter wildlife or minor maintenance issues in the rooms — this is not a pristine sanitised resort, and that’s what we love. A quick check online offered lower prices than we were quoted as walk-in rates.
