Photo of Tuke Menjangan
Two simple bamboo-clad duplex rooms share the family compound with a pretty garden and one of the tiniest swimming pools we’ve seen.

Although the neighbourhood is a little far-flung and you’ll probably be the only outsiders in town, the villagers are a welcoming and friendly lot and the host speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable about the area. Ari-con rooms are simple, clean and airy. Comfortable beds are bestowed with spotless white linen, and although there’s no side tables or lamps, switches are within easy reach. The basic outdoor bathroom is equipped with a hot-water shower. It could do with a bit of a scrub to remove stains, but is clean enough. A small shady terrace lacked furniture when we visited, but a picnic-style table and bench in the garden offers seating.

The tiny pool is, well tiny, but sparking clean, shaded with shade cloth and a pleasant surprise in a family homestay. There are not many choices nearby for eating or entertainment, but your host can drop you around the area. When we visited, one guest mentioned that one of the family is an ex-chef at Mimpi Resort, so quite possibly they could whip something up on request. The owner is a divemaster and can organise diving and snorkelling trips to Menjangan Island. Breakfast and WiFi are included.

We loved this place, but thought the rooms a little pricey for the offer. If you’re after convenience and all mod-cons look elsewhere, however for an authentic village homestay experience, Tuke Menjangan will make you feel very welcome.
