Rooms are decorated in Balinese style. Nice breakfast - great hospitality! No problem in check in and check out. We were very early, but the room was ready, so no drama - just checked in with a smile :)

I stayed at the Balinese for 8 days as I booked it in the last minute. It really depends on what do you expect from your accommodation, but this is a really great value for the money. It was very clean, spacious, relaxed and quiet. Room looks the same as on the photos. Room had aircon, ceiling fan, tv, fridge....

We stayed at the Balinese before and after our live aboard dive trip and the owner and staff were incredibly helpful and thoughtful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. It's not 5 star luxury but it was perfect for our requirements at a very reasonable price. What really made it stand out was the service. The owner let...

Stayed here 2 nights. Nice clean room and a comfy bed. Quiet location. Breakfast was nothing fancy - cheap bread some jam or cereal and remember to clean the dishes after u finish. It was a mix of a motel and backpackers where u could cool your own stuff. Pool is nothing to brag about. I'm sure there better places...

Cairns Airport is also 15 mins taxi ride away from here. All Tour operators pick up and drop off guests from and to Balinese motel. Public transport bus...

Checked in by a Philippina with a ponytail. She demanded that I pay in cash then give $100 deposit. We counted out the money and I only had 90 for the deposit and I wrote it down on the check in paper. When I checked out, I only received 85 not 90. Arguing ensued. The woman who checked me out...
