Bale Sampan Bungalows

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Great value! We had stayed in the trawangan resort prior to this and to be honest the trawangan was twice as much and there was not much difference between them. Bale sampan was actually far better. The rooms were clean and nice. There was air con. I loved the outdoor bathroom.The staff were friendly. The breakfast was good. They provided beach towels unlike many other places we stayed on our travels. Good location

The staff are beautiful, the rooms are nice and great bathroom facilities (clean). Beach across the road, they have beach chairs on the beach. The pool is small but great, spent lots of time there. The only thing I missed was tea and coffee making facilities in room. There is a fridge. The restaurant is open 7.30am- 10.30pm. But this makes it an nice quit place to stay. Close enough to main area, just not in the middle of it all

Thank you so much for your kind words. Sorry we are unable to provide kettles in the rooms at the moment due to limited power on the island. I hope you took advantage of our free tea and coffee and cake in the cafe for all our guests from 4-6pm. Best wishes and hope to see you again.

Friendly staff, spotless rooms, nice outdoor shower, laid back, nice simple breakfast, great location. Quiet, fresh and crispy sheets.
Will be back for sure, only stayed one night to sight see and still had a nice time. The lounges in the beach also belong to this hotel, reserve your seat with a towel as they go pretty quick. Nothing is missing except for a kettle and tea and coffee making. Shower had all the handwash, body wash and soap you need.

Thanks for your nice review, we are glad you liked the top quality linen, the best from Bali for our customers. Due to the limited power on the island we are unable to provide kettles in the room but we hope you enjoyed the free tea and coffee provided for all our guests in the cafe each afternoon.

Bale Sampan great value for money good beds with great linen. Wifi included great for teenagers. good breakfast. Thank you to Rudi and Arjuna for making our stay so memorable. And a pool on the beachfront where you can snorkel. The bikes are owned by the staff - so please make sure you hire at least one during your stay.

There is a mosque nearby and witb it being Ramadan prayers are heard frequently through the day and the wee hours of the morning.

We stayed in July 2014 and we were in a great location right near the drift area. Restaurants everywhere on waterfront. Our breakfast was lovely and simple with views of the ocean .Accommodation which consists of about 12 units from front to back , pool at front of villas.
We were very happy with the room and service and friendly and helpful staff. Good English speaking too.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 overlook pool and open views to ocean.The others are behind them with no view but quie...

We recently stayed on Gili T at Bale Sampan bungalows.
The bungalows are a short 400m walk from where the boats drop you (not at the wharf- a beach drop off).
The staff are friendly and helpful and are happy to organise transfers and have bikes and snorkelling equipment to hire for the day at competitive prices.

Breakfast in the morning was normal with a choice of bacon and eggs or muesli, fruit and yoghurt as well as a coffee and juice.
The cafe out the front serves lunch and a free coffee or tea in the afternoon.

The pool is clean and sunny and there are comfy sun loungers to relax on. Out the front there is a section of beach reserved for Bale Sampan customers with many more sun loungers.

Bale Sampan is quiet, away from the loud bars further down the beach. They also have good aircon and comfy beds.
The bungalows have lovely outdoor bathrooms and lovely strong fresh water showers.
