Ellie's Hotel @ Nusa Dua, Bali

As recommended by Lonely Planet....

This place was hard to find for the first time. Its actually just off the main road, but going there for the first time could be tricky. Do print out maps to help the cabbies (taxi drivers). We had hard time looking the hotel when its actually around the corner.

Located at the Nusa Dua area, this place was a bit isolated from the beaches. However, if you are looking for an authentic Balinese style of staying, this hotel will be your best choice. Going to the beach might need a cab.


The entrance of the hotel.


Some of the Balinese architecture items around the hotel.


Our lovely seaview room. Spacious and comfortable with individual air conditioner. The furnitures looked brand new.

But there was no cable TV but they had DVD player for movies. They had a huge stack of DVDs at the lobby counter. They had enough supply for a year!

The lovely balcony outside of the room.


The little cozy swimming pool.

Overall, I loved the quietness of the hotel and the uniquness of the architecture of the place.
The hotel only had 8 rooms. Not much facilities except the lovely swimming pool.

Breakfast was provided and it was cooked on individual basis. Breakfast there was fantastic.

If you are looking for a 4-5 stars facilities hotel with beach, this might not be an ideal place for you.

However, if you are looking for quietness, something "different" than the usual hotels, this could be a more suitable hotel for you.

Talk to David, the manager. He was an amazing person. Same goes to the locals there who were very helpful and super friendly.

The rates here goes from US 45 and above depending on season. Do call them for better rates.
