Set up towards the top of Senaru Road, just shy of the turnaround by Bale Bayan, Gunung Baru has a cluster of simple concrete freestanding chalets in pale green and off-cream colours set in a small depression behind the restaurant area.

The place was devoid of life when we passed through in December but we eventually rustled up someone from next door who had a key and showed us around. Rooms are functional rather than charming, but they’re clean and having the option of hot water (for an extra 100,00 rupiah which we’d imagine to be highly negotiable) puts here slightly above Pondok Bale Buyan just around the bend. You’re paying the same price here as the budget-focused fare back in the big smoke of central Senaru and it’s difficult to see the extra value here, but in high season this could be a bit of a hidden away safe bet.
