Get away from it all in Northern Bali where you can immerse yourself in local culture.

Cremation Ceremony

Bondalem is a small village on the north coast of Bali, outside of the city of Tejakula. Bondalem is the perfect place to experience the authentic Balinese way of life. The well-known southern cities of Bali like Kuta, Nusa Dua, Seminyak and Sanur are crowded, touristy, and busy with lots of restaurants, shopping and nightlife.  We invite you to a totally different experience here in the village of Bondalem where no one will pester you to buy souvenirs. No endless rows of tourist shops, no night clubs, just blue water, incredible views, peace, and quiet. Here is where you get away from it all.

The villa rests on a natural volcanic black sand & pebble beach where local fishermen bring in their day’s catch. You can hire a traditional Balinese fishing boat to head out to sea to enjoy the awe-inspiring sunrise and watch the dolphins. The coral reef is directly outside our private beach entrance and the shallow and calm sea make this an ideal area for snorkeling. An elevated seafront promenade offers leisurely walks along the shore. Kick off your flip-flops and stroll down the miles of sandy beach.

The villagers are extremely friendly, smiling and greeting you on the road.  You can walk around the village and experience its many temples, morning food market and roadside restaurants. Here you can listen to the authentic music as villagers parade towards the sea or enjoy the pageantry as locals head to one of the three nearby temples. If you want, you may don authentic Balinese clothing and participate in one of the many Balinese ceremonies that take place right outside the villa.

Venture out a bit further and discover the waterfalls or sign up for scuba diving.   We are happy to help arrange your custom day trip to explore the "Island of the Gods".
