Oceanfront compound nested in a corner of Candidasa Bay, Rumah Imbang embodies the essence of harmony & balance as embodied by its name. Graced with steady trade-winds (keeping temperatures & mosquitoes down), panoramic views of the sea, and regularly perhaps the most breathtaking sunsets in all of Bali, Rumah Imbang is more of a private “home-away-from-home” than a hotel or villa.
The calm energy that permeates the compound is immediately evident upon passing through the gates into the garden, with Bougainvillea, Frangipani & fruit trees pleasing the senses & a variety of palms completing the tropical oasis in this unspoiled corner of east Bali.
The large (24are) property sports 3 Balinese style villas. There is a common bale for sitting/dinning, shared large kitchen, and common room with satellite TV/DVD, as well as a pool and mediation bale spread across the grounds.
The three Villas consist of:
• Garden View: 2 rooms, 1 queen bed & other 2x twin sharing an open bathroom & porch;
• SeaView: 2 luxury suites with queen beds & private indoor/outdoor baths and porch, &
• Master: large bedroom with queen bed and indoor/outdoor bathroom (with make-up corner, tub and shower) and a private porch.
Rooms may be mixed and matched to suite your needs.
All the rooms have just benefited from renovations &/or redecorating and have a/c & fans. A single bed can be added to any room. And there is an overflow room (a more bohemian space with a/c & bath). So 3 additional people can be accommodated if desired, with the entire compound accommodating 10-12.
The attentive staff of 3 will be here to assist with planning sojourns around East Bali, to arrange for scuba/snorkeling expeditions (right down our steps), trekking up to the Monkey Temple (right behind the Villa), cultural visits & much more (see website). We provide a delicious breakfast each day, & the staff is happy to make lunch/dinner on request - as well as turning these into Balinese cooking classes. There are several restaurants within a 2 to 10-minute walk, and the town is 15-minutes. Many restaurants will deliver (often the choice by guests as once here) or send a car & bring you back.
Organic produce is available from Bali-Direct upon request (at an additional cost).
To get here, we can arrange an airport pickup (about 1.5-2hrs) or send directions along. And if there are any particular needs (e.g., dietary) & interests (e.g., yoga, scuba, snorkeling, fishing, scooter/bicycle, cultural visits) just let us know so that we can look to make your stay particularly special.
In our 1st year, with +20 5* reviews on TripAdvisor & another +20 on AirBnb (98% overall) we know we’re doing something very right . And make a point to stop all each evening to enjoy those magical sunsets!!!
Rumah Imbang thus offers a particularly unique vacation experience ideal for small family gatherings, group getaways, weddings, corporate integration workshops, or retreats.
Our compound is meant to be your home away from home in a special little corner of paradise. And based upon the over 50 5* reviews (and just 2 4*) to date we know most guest very much embrace that theme and feel that way!!!
