The stunning Guesthouse Nusa Indah was built in 1914 as a halfway house for researchers by the director of the botanical gardens at the time.
The building still retains all of its colonial beauty with large rooms, high ceilings, colonial floor tiles and plenty of antique furniture. The bedrooms here contain big beds, a few odd bits of furniture, a sink and high ceilings which keep the temperature cool, negating the need for air-con. The bathrooms are all shared with hot water showers and Western toilets and while they could be cleaner, they're not too bad. Some cheaper rooms around the side are just simple hotel rooms and are worth a look if on a tighter budget. This is a great option located right in the botanical gardens.
