About this Hotel
Price From $145
Each bungalow is filled with Balinese teak furniture, such as intricately carved armoires and antique four-poster beds. A
t night, guests are encouraged to open all the windows—and one wall of doors that lead to a private veranda—to let in the warm breezes.
In the morning, noise from howler monkeys in the trees may provide a comic wake-up call.
The bathrooms are private and semi-alfresco: The toilet and sink are under the roof's eaves, but the shower is open to the sky.
A seven-table restaurant looks out over the pool, past a well-trimmed lawn, and down to the beach where there's a bamboo massage hut ($55 for an hour).
The American chef, James Kelly, draws from Asian influences and makes great use of local seafood.
