“'second home' on a paradise island....”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

So much to explore in Bali & yet I keep coming back to this beautiful island & to my 'second home' at Ring Sameton Inn...... here are my impressions after returning from my third trip:

Nusa Penida is still a tranquil place, traditional, uncomplicated & genuinely welcoming to the few tourists that make the trip (1 hour from Sanur by public boat - so hitch up your pants, walk out to the boat & clamber on board.... you will find that less luggage/travelling light here is a bonus!).

The pace on Nusa Penida is quiet & somehow gentle, with beautiful beaches, temples & interesting villages to explore right across the island. Getting around is also really easy.

Ring Sameton Inn has very spacious rooms, really huge, comfortable beds & great food at the restaurant (best Gado Gado & fish). As a single traveller I feel welcomed, included & connected to the pace & daily life at Ring Sameton & the surrounding community, with the owners & staff sharing their knowledge & stories to bring the history & island alive.

They are also attentive, thoughtful & very helpful, ensuring that you are comfortable & enjoying your stay; things like arranging a knowledgable guide to take you to visit a local temple for evening prayer, or a trip to the local markets, or for bigger expeditions around the island (land & boat).

This is why I travel back to Nusa Penida & why the Ring Sameton is my 'second home'; & why being here is a unique & authentic experience & one (sadly), that is lacking in some other destinations on mainland Bali.

Cant believe Im the first one to review the Ring Sameton; it's a gem & so worth the trip across the water to discover & explore this beautiful island paradise.

Reviewed 10 December 2012

We only stayed for 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer. It's the only hotel on the island and it was excellent value for money and great service with a smile. The staff were all lovely and very helpful. Considering the part of the world it is in, the rooms were basic but clean with TV's and Air conditioning. Obviously its no Hilton or Ritz but it ticks all the boxes for a nice, relaxing stay. Only downside was no pool and slow food service, but that seemed to be the case everywhere on the island.
