Geria Semalung Bungalow
Reviewed 3 January 2012

This place is a bit out of the way- we had a car so its distance from the main road wasn't a problem. I don't think they get a lot of patronage judging by the guest book. The views from the garden are very good- it has an elevated aspect. We were the only ones there at the time and the staff (one) was nowhere around probably because of this. The breakfast was average.
There was no fan in the room and it was hot. The bed was very hard. There is no internet coverage and it wasn't possible to use the hotels computer either. The hostel keeps a large number of roosters for cockfighting -something I think is barbaric and they keep up a constant noise not only in the early morning.We actually paid more for this stay than most places in Bali but I'd have to rate it as disappointing.

On our last visit to Bali, we stopped briefly at Tirttaganga and fell in love with it. We knew that the next time we came; we would spend more time there. While searching for accommodations, we came across Geria Semalung Bungalows.
While it can be difficult to find, Geria Semalung is worth the effort. The bungalows and clean and comfortable, the staff are very helpful and pleasant and the view from the veranda nothing short of spectacular. Off the main roads and beaten track, it provides a great escape from the crowded resort areas.
The breakfasts were mediocre but suppers were great. Lunch at the Good Karma Restaurant was cheap and really good.
It was a short walk by trail through rice paddies and jungle to Tirttaganga which is a wonderful place to sit and watch time slide by.

If the local healer comes by and offers a Massage, don't negotiate, just settle in for the most amazing expirience (although it can be difficult to co-ordinate as he speaks no english)
I would have to say our time at Geria Semalung and Tirttaganga was the highlight of this trip to Bali.

We had one of only four large beautifully furnished free standing bungalows on top of a hill in the small hamlet of Ababi, away from the main road (close to Tirtagangga). The Bali & Lombok Rough Guide explains in detail how to find it. The views were amazing: the large valley, Tirtigangga water palace, forest, coast and the island of Lombok. You can walk to the village of Tirtigangangga by road (30 minutes); alternatively there are farmers' paths downhill which take only 15 minutes - walking boots recommended. Fortunately, they have a chef on site who cooks wonderful (large) local evening meals - you choose your dishes at breakfast time so that they can buy all the fresh ingredients during the day. It is Japanese owned but run by Balinese and the staff are all very polite and helpful. A very nice place to relax for a few days.
