Great Experience at this resort with more elephant fountains than you can count! Very clean. Great Views! Order from the menu at the restaurant! Lots of tourists during the day but quiets down at night. Get a private pool it’s so worth it.
Functional but overpriced for the condition. Staff were friendly
Don't book online. The room was dirty and the water too variable in temperature to get a warm shower for anything more than 10 seconds at s time. I had s strong feeling the manager was more interested in my money than my pleasant stay and was more than happy to direct me to ATM across the street ...
The rooms were filthy! Everything broken! Locked in the toom when the door knob fell off! The employees lied to us over and over! Avoid at all costs
It was picturesque. the view from our room is exactly like these pictures show, because we were upgraded to the mountain view room. The downside was there were a LOT of bugs, but not harmful ones. so many moths, large flies, etc, because it was the lake area. So you had to manage that in your room ...
very rustic basic simple hut accommodation, very quiet with the most amazing lake and mountain views. the restaurant is built right out into the lake. the overall place however is run down, the pool isnt clean and there arent many tourist facilities. the manager was annoying, the tv/dvd not working. ...
This hotel is quite bad - water was leaking from the ceiling, bathroom is horrible, bed not comfortable, the staff slept on a mattress in the middle of the lobby area, a dog was crying all night long. Lucky us we only stay there few hours, before going to an early morning hike to Mt Batur volcano. ...
Mount Batur is an active volcano in Bali, Indonesia with a 7.5 kilometre wide caldera. The volcano’s summit is 1,700 metres above sea level and many visitors arrive here to watch the sunset. The climb to the top of Mount Batur takes around two hours, with many locals acting as guides.
The best way to see Mount Batur is by trekking, which will allow walkers to pass over the black sand and lava from hundreds of years ago. Most treks start early in the morning, with breakfast being enjoyed while taking in the sunrise. On the way back there is a Balinese coffee plantation that sells Coffee Luwak, which is the world’s most expensive coffee.
There are 15 villages on Mount Batur, as well as the famous Pura Ulun Danu Batur, which is Bali’s second most important temple. Hiking tours can be booked in any of these villages, with some companies also offering cycling tours. The entire highland area surrounding the mountain is a tourist community, with a number of places to eat and shop for souvenirs, but there are no bars here.
