Unfortunately it’s only from one room, however the other rooms don’t miss out entirely and look out to the small garden within the family compound.

Traditionally styled exteriors with ornate wooden doors open to simple and spotless modern tiled interiors. Rooms are equipped with air-con or are fan-cooled. Decor is fairly neutral, and there’s not much decoration, but the larger upstairs room (with the great view) features an elaborate four poster bed. (We loved this room so much we lived here for a year.)

The others provide more standard wooden beds, which sport bottom sheets and a pretty bedcover, so pack a sarong or sleep sheet if you prefer a top sheet too. The rooms we viewed are decked out with a small alcove with bamboo mat, cushions and low table, a perfect reading nook. Bathrooms are well scrubbed, but some are a little stained in the corners, however the water is hot and there’s a tub for soaking when you’re tired from sightseeing. Spacious furnished terraces are ideal for some outdoor living and observing the Balinese family life within the compound. Your included breakfast will be served here too.

Your hosts Anik and Kadek are charming and helpful and offer as much interaction with their traditional life as you would like. Kadek’s father is a local priest, and it’s interesting to watch the comings and going of his clients (say hi to them from us). We recommend the upstairs room with the view (of course), but if it’s not available have a look at the others as they are all slightly different and each has different advantages. Pangkung House is next door to Artini 2 Cottages.
