The Surroundings

Shut the garden doors behind you and you’re immediately enveloped in the sound of birds and the rustle of the sugar palm fronds high above you.

But, less than 2 minutes away by foot is Jalan Legian and the hustle bustle of lower Seminyak

Legian and Seminyak beaches are just 10 to 12 minutes away – if you don’t stop for a meal drink or dispose of some cash in a shop. As with most Balinese beaches you can rent surfboards and bodyboards or buy a cool beer at the small stands.

Jalan Sri Rama on one side offers a range of neat home-cooked warungs (small restaurants) offering everything from Nasi Campur to Nasi Padang and everything Indonesian in between.

Jalan Legian and Jalan Padma on the other side offer a more eclectic range of shopping and eatery options.

Bintang Supermarket is a 10 minute away straight up Jalan Legian and we have a list of great butchers that you can visit if you’re looking for something special for a BBQ at Nyumpené.

The local post office is 3 minutes away – if you are a traditionalist and still value sending postcards home!

Further afield, you can get out and about with the help of Blue Bird taxis (bit of a hassle sometimes) but a better option if you have a smartphone is download GoJek or Grab ride services. With these operators a genial driver on a motorbike or an air conditioned car will pick you up and whisk you to your destination. We will happily help you download these apps and teach you how to use them – or we can order transport for you.
