“A gem on Bali”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

Giri Carik is two new, clean and comfortable rooms with terrace and outdoor bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location amidst the rice paddies is wonderful and on clear days you see the Mt Agung when you wake up. It is quiet but there are a lot of frogs and be prepared for loud geckos at night. On foot it is about two kms to the village of Sidemen, which is not really worth the effort and there are some small restaurants around although it was very quiet when I was there. You can make a wonderful round walk in the valley, which takes about three hours. All in all, possibilities in Sidemen are limited if you have no other means of transport than your own foot. It is also quite a hassle to reach by public bemo from Klungkung.

If you are interested in Balinese culture and village life , this is a good place to stay . Other places have pools and A/C , but in our view this doesnt make sense .Giri Carik is in the middle of a typical Balinese rice field . When you wake up , you see Mt. Agung from youre bed .You see the women going to work , carrying baskets on their head . In the evening they all come back and we sat at Ani`s Warong next door for a beer or a Douag Palm wine . The family cooked delicious Balinese dishes . We planed to stay for 3 days , loved it so much we spent our entire holliday with them .We rented a scooter and saw Balinese ceremonies every day . Either in Sidemen or within a few miles .
Stay with a warm family for a while ...their smiles and positive energy are contageous .

This is a new hotel with 2 lovely bali style rooms with ensuite showers and toilets. the hotel is owned by a very friendly local family of rice farmers. the rooms were clean and spacious. there is a small restaurant attached and the food is balinese and very tasty.
This was a very relaxing experience. The views are wonderful with the backdrop of mount agung the highest mountain in bali. It is a great place to walk in and i took every opportunity to do that.
There are several good restaurants nearby and if you are keen the local markets are full of local produce.
This was a truly idyllic place to spend our holidays.
