Bamboo Bali – our cottage was ”Just the two of us’ and everything & more that we required. Wonderfully laid out and extremely comfortable for our 10 day stay. The air con & ceiling fan which are both required when you are inside the cottage are fab. Large bathroom, fabulous kitchen/bedroom/lounge & added bonus a walk-in wardrobe – could have stayed a lot longer! Great wi-fi in & around your cottage. Also, there is a smart TV for Netflix etc.
There was a bbq located very close to our cottage which was great as we did use this several times and loved being able to relax around our cottage in the evenings. There was plenty of space around our cottage to rinse out dive or windsurf gear and leave to dry, also space for hanging out your beach towels (provided by Bamboo Bali). Plus an outside shower.
There are a couple of large supermarkets within a 10 minute drive from Bamboo Bali, Van de Tweel which has everything & more that you will need. Great choice of everything & a good wine section at reasonable prices. Everything is in US Dollars & credit cards widely accepted, but always good to have cash for the smaller purchases and plenty of ATMs around.
Unfortunately for us Debbie was on holiday during our visit but had been extremely helpful during our booking process and supplied us with various information the main one being ‘maps.me’ which we used all the time during our stay on the island. It is a free app and well worth having on your phone.
Anno & Vera were lovely hosts and although the office was not open all the times it was supposed to be most of the time we managed to find one of them to help us. Anno was extremely helpful as we unfortunately had to attend the local hospital several times and needed to contact our travel medical insurers and spent most of one morning in the office allowing us to use the phone, scanning and email very helpful service indeed – thank you!
I would recommend hiring a jeep/car while on the Island as this is the best way to get around and very easy with ‘maps.me’ to find your way around. We felt very safe at all times, the locals are very friendly and helpful.
As mentioned above we did need to visit the hospital and received excellent service. I hope you do not need to visit for any medical issues but if you do rest assured for a small Island they are extremely equipped with all up to date machines and we really could not have been better looked after.
Would highly recommend Bamboo Bali as it is a wonderful place to come back to after being out and about on the Island.
