Coconuts is perfect. You won't find a better address or nicer hosts anywhere else in Bali. Russell and his beautiful family (including Mark, Fiona and Liam) made me feel more like a friend than a guest.
My room (4) was superb. So very spacious, comfortable and luxurious. Each room is appointed with everything you would need or want. The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom clean, roomy and functional. My balcony overlooked the pool and stunning tropical gardens.
As it is a guesthouse, the kitchen, lounge and dining area is downstairs for all the guests to access and enjoy. It was really nice to chat to some of the other guests staying at Coconuts and we often bumped into each other around the pool or making a snack in the kitchen (just like at home).
The reading lounge is upstairs and is well stocked with books and magazines. On the rooftop there is a nice quiet area where you can sit back with a cold Bintang and watch the sun set. Everything has been carefully thought out when Coconuts was built. Just awesome.
The pool area is really inviting, just the right atmosphere ...and really welcomed after a long hot day of shopping in Kuta!
Russell is a wealth of local knowledge and more than happy to have a chat about the area, past and present. He has built a beautiful modern guesthouse while still maintaining the charm and integrity of the culture, a perfect balance. Ask him about the beautiful old photographs on the walls throughout the guesthouse, really interesting.
The local restaurants all deliver to Coconuts and breakfast is just a short walk down to Echo Beach for excellent bacon and eggs (with real toast!!)
Canggu has a real laid back surf culture and there seems to be an eclectic mix of nationalities staying in and around Canggu. Very relaxing and welcoming.
Just a hint, the Thai place opposite Coconuts serves excellent Thai and Asian food at reasonable prices.
I can't say enough about Coconuts, I didn't really want to leave (4 nights is way too short) but I will definitely be back. A perfect guesthouse in a beautiful location for an unbelievable price.
Thanks go to Russell, Fitri and Natalie, see you again soon !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Coconuts Guesthouse is a modern villa located 350 meters from the world famous surfing beaches of Canggu, on Bali's west coast, and just a short 15 minute drive from the world class restaurants, shopping and nightlife of Kuta and Seminyak. Don't be fooled by the "Guesthouse" label. We're really an exclusive, four room hotel! Coconuts consists of four luxurious bedrooms at extremely affordable prices. The spacious rooms feature king size double beds, air conditioning and ceiling fans, walk in wardrobes, minibar fridge, and electronic combination safety deposit boxes for your valuables. All rooms have high quality bathrooms featuring western quality fixtures and marble throughout. There's a 10 meter swimming pool with extended kids pool, plus sunbeds, umbrellas, etc. There's also a beautifully appointed guest lounge room with 42" flat screen TV with Indovision (satellite TV), free WIFI, and kitchen facilities. We have an abundance of quality restaurants within walking distance, most of which home deliver. There's a second guest lounge area to relax and read a good book, and a rooftop garden that's a fantastic place to have a drink with friends whilst watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. Away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta, yet within easy reach, Canggu still offers up an old school Bali experience, and some of the best Sunsets on the island! Canggu is fast becoming "the place to stay" when visiting Bali, "The Island of the Gods". Airport transfers are available. ... more less
