“quiet place, nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Balitis for 3 days and I am really happy about my experience. My room was clean, the owner and his wife are very helpful and kind people. Do not exitate to ask them anything you need. The location is a bit far from the beach and the center of Kuta, but it could also be not too bad as you're not in the middle of Kuta's noise. Breakfast not too bad but could be better. The environment was really nice and peaceful. If I had to come back to Kuta I think I will stay at Balitis again.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed here for three nights. We booked based on reviews and weren't let down. The rooms are small but exceptionally clean- the staff cleaned and changed the towels every day. The breakfast was lovely- jam and banana pancakes with fresh fruit. This homestay is about 15 mins walk to the beach but it was nice to be slightly outside the craziness of Kuta. Would definitely return.

We stayed at Balitis in July and it was excellent. The room is very nice and extremely clean. They clean it every day for you! The owners are wonderful people who will get out of their way to help you. You will always feel at home there. They serve great balinese breakfast. It's a lovely way to get to know the local cuisine and customs. The bed was veeeeery comfy. It is a short walk away from Legian, but it's not a problem. Great value for money as well.

This is a beautiful home stay resort, especially for the price!! The staff are really friendly and more than happy to help. The garden and surrounding area's are extremely well kept and the rooms are remarkably clean, well facilitated and each room has an outside sitting area. Breakfast is served to your door each morning. The beach/shops are within walking distance, do however take the address of the home stay out with you as we found that not many taxi drivers knew the name of the resort with it being fairly new. Would definitely stay here again!!

We have just got back from Indonesia and we stayed at the Balitis for four nights. We arrived late Friday evening and had advised our hosts that we would be checking in late. Our taxi driver had difficulty finding it so luckily we had a contact number and he called the woman. (Important note NEVER EVER get a taxi from inside the airport if you can help it, they will rip you off. Instead walk outside and get a Bluebird or metered taxi. MAKE SURE they use their meters, if they don't then just get out the taxi! We paid 60,000 Rp on average getting to and from the airport to Kuta/Legian, where as the airport taxis will charge between 100,000 - 250,000 Rp)

Upon arrival the gates had been left open and the woman I had been emailing showed us our room. The room was very small and basic but that is what the description online had stated when we booked, so not a problem. Breakfast was very simple, it consisted of two bananas, three small sweet pastries and a pot of boiling water for the instant tea and coffee. As there was two of us we needed to go else were for more food as it was not enough (however in Bali breakfast isn't as an important meal as else where in the world, so this breakfast set up was pretty standard everywhere we went).

The grounds were very pretty and well kept and the rooms were well cleaned. The couple who ran the home stay were also nice and spoke good English. They even dropped us to Padama for us to rent bikes. The walk into the main part of town was about 10-15 minutes.

Balitis is on a main road so you can hear the traffic from your room and also most places have dogs. Balitis has a lovely dog but he/she is quite noisy when there are people walking about. We didn't spend any time at the home stay, just used it as a base to sleep. If you are looking at spending time here and relaxing then I suggest staying elsewhere but it is a good value for money place to stay, with friendly people.

All in all it was a nice place to stay, it is a home stay NOT a hotel which means you are staying in a family compound. This was nice but keep that in mind, as they are not there to wait on your beck and call, you are fitting into their daily lives not the other way around. Look online as the Balitis home stay description is very true to life. Great place to stay if you need a base to travel about Kuta or want to just go to the beach every day.

Happy Traveling!!

Room Tip: Try and get a room as far from the front as possible. Away from the road.
