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.
