Unique place. It used to be a luxury hotel, after the Bali bombing it was empty for a few years. The bungalows are still in very good shape, only the main house could be renovated. You have a great view down the hill over the ocean from your balcony. Ask for firewood as there is a fireplace in the bungalow and it can be a bit cold.

I am writing this review a few weeks after my three-nights stay at the villas and I can still feel the bitterness! A mixed bag of feelings where the location & the dilapidated beauty of the villas still are the best part of it, if you like it cooler at night and are attracted by a certain location morbidity! But then my disturbing experience with Papajero (obviously not his real name, a nickname?) surfaces. But all is good that ends well, so again a mixed bag of feelings. After reading some reviews I decided to have a look and once there I decided to stay, Papajero offered me a special rate for three nights & full cash payment in advance which I accepted and paid. We then chatted some more and as usual in Bali, he offered to "accompany" me on a hike around Tamblingan Lake & Temples the following day, because fortunately for me he would be free for the day! Special price for cash in advance, which I accepted and paid. He then offered to accompany me to an ATM later that day because he had to check if his payments from Booking & Airbnb had arrived. All this set & agreed I spent the rest of the day hiking to a waterfall and in the evening Papajero took me to a first ATM where he could not access his account and I could not get any cash (happened before in Bali) upon arriving at a second ATM Papajero asked me if I could withdraw one million IDR (some 64€) for him, full refund the following day and offered me his ID as security & even addressed an interest rate on payback. Initial hesitation! But I do generally trust people and I am ready to help, if I can. So I decided I could & would help. I asked Papajero to sign on the withdrawal receipt the agreed payback date - no ID or interest rate required from me! So now within some ten hours from my arrival Papajero had received from me a total cash amount of about 2.250.000 IDR (some 140€) between accommodation, hike and loan. Depending in your travel budget: peanuts or serious money. And you know already that, Papajero never "accompanied" me the hike ("You woke up too late, I have to prepare for my big ceremony now" against "I asked you to pick me up at 7:30AM but you came at 9:00AM") as well as you know already that it took me until my checkout & two unpleasant confrontations in between to receive the full payback. So, if you like it cooler at night and can enjoy a morbid setting, go for it but keep your purse tightly close and maybe save your trust for trustworthy people.

The eco villas are situated on a beautiful piece of land with a marvelous view. On a clear day you can even see down to the northern beaches of the island. Right in front of the property to the north stands a beautiful tree, locally called "the spirit tree". A stunningly beautiful waterfall, the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, is just 5km north down in the valley (this was the most beautiful waterfall and without doubt beats the 4 waterfalls near Munduk). It's quite secluded, but worth the trip. Locals set up a counter and pathway down to the waterfall, for 15k IDR you're good to go. Renting a scooter right next to the eco villas also seems to be no problem (60k IDR/Day). The villas themselves, unfortunately, are in a run-down shape. This itself is quite okay. However, the most disturbing part is the mouldy air. The beds and sheets appear somewhat damp. This led us to the decision to leave after one night (we had 4 nights planned). We did not try another one of the villas as we suspected the situation would not be better there. Perhaps we were unlucky with the one we had. We really like the concept of establishing an ecologically conscious place for tourism. There is still a lot to work on however. For one, the villas need restoration to get rid of the mould. Either tear them down completely and build some simple wooden structures (nothing fancy required) or try to save as much of the original buildings. Another point of improvement would be the concept of the place. Some more thought should be put into what this place should look like, how it should feel. Personally, I think that a very natural/ecological approach would fit perfectly. Cob houses? (There seems to be a very loamy ground). Straw bale houses? Permaculture approach? Some outside consultation might come in handy, perhaps finding an investor as well. The reason for this (at least attempted) constructive review and the four stars is the incredible friendly nature of the people running this place. One can feel however that struggle exists to keep this place and project afloat. If you like to support this project and what it tries to establish it is definitely worth a little stay. The property and land is mesmerizing (unfortunately the mouldy stench from the villas kind of keeps your excitement floored). Perhaps even bring some ideas and inspiration for the place.

The hotel is a ghost hotel, no light sources at night, very dim lights inside villas, no one at reception and very badly taken care of, it's an unsafe rip-of. I had gone up one evening to the reception to ask about Papajero (the host) with whom I had organized pick up to go to certain locations I wanted to visit. He never showed up, and there was Hendra, a 20-year-old at the reception, and he harassed me, and turned off all the dim lights already around the villa I was staying in, so I was in complete darkness couldn't see anything, which led me to fear the worst, so I locked myself in my room and stayed up all night awake in case he decided to attack my room, which was very easy to do since there's no service or internet in case of emergency such as this or other, and no safety measures whatsoever. When I spoke to host via phone after I left the village for my safety, he tried to tell me that he didn't have an employee with this name, and all he had to say was that he's sorry. While as if I'd gotten attacked or badly injured I had no way of informing anyone, and if I had, the host was out of reach and failed to commit to my plans. That place is very dark at night you can't see where you're going, very scary and dangerous. Please take this into consideration for the safety of future travelers and don't go there if you're traveling alone, especially if a woman. Let alone that all the villas have no service & no internet & no way of contacting anyone in case of emergency. The bathtub's wall is a window, not covered by curtains, meaning anyone on the outside could watch you. Very scary, dark and dangerous place. Inaccurate description, the place is falling to pieces...
