Colourful family homestay
In the backyard of a family home, Giri Sari Guest House greets you with a sarong-wearing statue decorated with umbrellas and umbul umbul (Balinese flags) and offers a handful of spotless rooms in duplex blocks.
Zingy colourful feature walls brighten up the modest rooms, and matching accessories give them the edge on similarly priced options. Spacious and comfortable, the bright interiors are furnished with mosquito-netted beds sporting crisp white linen, bedside tables and reading lamps, a wardrobe and small desk all in matching dark wood. It’s simple yet tasteful. Both air-con and ceiling fan-cooled room options are available. Tiled ensuite bathrooms are bare-bones with cold water only but super clean, and space around the washbasin supplies room for your toiletries. Sunny furnished verandahs are a delightful position to enjoy the trim and pleasant garden.
A bright lime green pondok in the garden adds a small spa with colourful batik covered massage beds, curtained for privacy. An adjoining simple restaurant serves tasty inexpensive local food and drinks and cold beer. WiFI, breakfast and all-day-help-yourself tea and coffee are included. The family are gracious and friendly hosts and speak good English.
Giri Sari Guest House enjoys a quiet village location, mountainside of the main road. If Giri Sari Guest House is full, you could try Ode Guest House, which has good air-con rooms at a similar rate.
