Spacious rooms, great pool, friendly staff, yummy food. Kadek Taruna and his team are awespme. This place is a lovely oasis away from noise and hustle. I highly recommend it. ( I wouldn't bother with the trek in the NP.. a bit dry in july ..maybe go in the wet season when more animals are around). I would definitely recommend diving at Menjanen Island..coral in great shape. Staff at Taruna were lovely.Thanks Carolyn and family.

Thanks to trip advisor and booking, we found this incredible hotel! After less than an hour, we were already regretting not having booked more than one night. Staff is amazingly friendly and thoughtful. We had the impression to be like 5 stars hotel's clients. Room is large and very well decorated. Swimming pool and garden are nice and well maintained. SPA and food are of great quality. If we come back to Bali one day, we will definitely spend more nights in this lovely place!! Highly highly recommended.

We were amazed from the minute we arrived. The service is without fault and they go above and beyond to make your trip perfect. The rooms are beautiful and the shower is the best. The spa and restaurant are new and were the best and reasonable. J

What a place, what a community. Away from the hustle and bustle we got to experience the true Bali.
The Taruna family which include the staff that are treated like family, could not have been more accommodating, fun and genuinely gorgeous to spend time with. Our room was divine, immaculately clean and the morning and night fresh frangipanis were such a lovely touch. The food and massage was the best I experienced in Bali. As for the views from the pool to the mountain, it made it very hard to want to do anything else but lay poolside! Thank you all so much, memories for a lifetime.

Well maintained grounds, lovely pool, close to the beach and nice views toward the mountains. The room presentation was excellent, very clean and private. In room safe.

Restaurant serves really tasty great food and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Options for currency exchange, tours to snorkelling and diving sites, hotel pick-up and drop-off.

Loved the outside bathroom; despite other reviews which complain about the mosquitoes I didn't really have a problem with them. With a liberal covering of lotion I was protected against bites and the coils at the front door added further protection. They weren't that invasive or common anyway.

One down side to this property is that I found the walls between rooms had no sound-proofing whatsoever. I could clearly hear conversations in the adjacent room to the point where I could have participated easily. I would request a room with no neighbours if possible - particularly if your stay here is 'romance orientated'.

Traffic noise in the restaurant was truly horrendous, although to be fair a new restaurant away from the main road is almost complete and will go a long way to addressing this so not really an issue.

If it were not for the wafer thin wall in my room without any hesitation I'd have given this home-stay five stars.

Will I stay again? With the wealth of home-stays in Permuteran it's difficult to say, maybe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room without neighbours!

This was booked for me by the dive operator I used as part of Diving/Hotel/Transportation package. Not knowing what to really expect since I didn't do any research on this "1-night accommodation", and from the name "Homestay" I imagined that I would be staying at someone's spare bedroom or a guest house in the back.

What a pleasant surprise! It turned out that Taruna Homestay is a charming villa with private bungalows, front desk and a restaurant in a lovely garden setting.
Ladies at Front Desk & Restaurant are genuinly kind, helpful, inviting and accommodating...I couldn't be more impressed.

On my bed were flower petals carefully placed in the shape of "heart" and a big leaf with personal welcome messeage hand-written right on it! I was blown away...Wow is an understatement.

Simple cozy room has a king-size bed and a closet, which is like a little treasure chest as you'll find a pretty lounging robe, a pair of flip-flops and a casual beach bag inside. What more do you want?

When you open the bathroom door and step in -OUT actually- the large bathroom is 'al fresco'.
I am not used to "open-air bathroom concept", but this was private, beautiful and even spiritual.

I would absolutely recommend Taruna Homestay to anyone visiting the area. I can assure you that they will make you feel so special and welcomed with true Balinese hospitality from the heart.
