Couldn't agree more with the other Very Good and Excellent reviews. I would definitely stay with Komang again at either of the properties she manages. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended to three nights instead of two.
Our room was spotless and simple, surprised us by being air conditioned, and if you can tune out the ubiquitous roosters, quiet except for the waves out front lulling you to sleep sometimes with a a treat of an accompanying rain shower. The view and sunset in April cannot be beat on the island. Komang was very kind to us. A welcome coconut drink greeted us on our way to lunch. She had breakfast brought to our room every day. Her staff were helpful with motorbikes. Her children were helpful with their delightful smiles. At about USD$25 a night, it's an excellent value.
A couple of things to note. The electricity apparently is inconsistent on the island. It was out when we arrived. It was back on by the evening.
We actually stayed at the 2nd property Komang's family owns just a short walk down the sidewalk from Made Inn. Our room did not have hot water. It didn't really matter because I was already so badly sunburned all I wanted was a cool shower. I didn't think as a result to ask if this is the way it is so if that's important to you, ask.
There is NO ATM on the island. You can convert currency but the rates are less favorable than in Bali. Try to estimate how much you'll need and take just a bit more.
Motorbikes were 60k rupiah a day through Komang. The one we had the first day was a little wobbly so we asked for a different one the 2nd day. It was perfect. I noticed by the third day that wearing a mask or at least a scarf while tooting around would have been a good idea.
The only reason I didn't give an Excellent was that on arrival not only were we not staying at Made Inn, but the two rooms on the 2nd floor I'd confirmed were available were not. To Komang's credit she took full responsibility for the mix-up; apparently her staff didn't understand that they were to hold the two 2nd floor rooms for us. Our room was big enough that my travel buddy and I decided to share so we could both have the view we'd been dreaming about.
