Friendly family-run hotel with pool
A friendly and fun-loving host, a flower-filled garden and a fetching swimming pool are all fine reasons for choosing Merthayasa 2 Bungalows.
This terrific family-run hotel tucked into a quiet back lane of Jalan Hanoman offers a range of comfortable rooms from older style fan-cooled to newer modern and spacious fan or air-con rooms — the newer ones are better value.
Double-storey modern brick buildings edge the pool and the tiled interiors are smart, spacious and stylish. Beds are large and comfortable with colourful linen and the rooms are spotless. Tiled bathrooms are very spacious, but a little stark with very little bench space, however they’re clean and the showers are hot. Furnished balconies overlook the pool and are a pleasant spot to hangout, use the free WiFi or enjoy your included breakfast.
Divided from the family compound with a black volcanic stone wall, the good-sized oblong-shaped swimming pool is long enough for a short lap, and is divided with a shallow kids section at one end. Spouting goddesses pour water from their urns, and the surrounding garden adds a touch of tropical ambience. Sun loungers and shady umbrellas provide poolside relaxation.
Merthayasa 2 Bungalows is a good value flashpacker option, and the genuinely kind and welcoming owner gives it the edge on the bigger hotels. Merthayasa 2 Bungalows is the sister hotel to older Merthayasa Bungalows on Jalan Monkey Forest, and if you get hot and bothered wandering the streets you can pop in and make use of their pool too. Nearby Savira Bungalow is a good alternative. It has a slightly smaller swimming pool and rates are marginally lower.
