location

 
Area often referred to as “old Bali.” Here, you will find the royal palaces of Klungkung and Karangasem. Here, too, Karangasem’s last raja built his water palaces: Tirtagangga, now a public bathing area, and the recently restored Ujung Palace.


Royalty aside, East Bali is packed with villages whose way of life has changed little over the centuries. None is more rooted in the past, however, than the closed, religious community of Tenganan. While most of Bali embraced and reinterpreted Hinduism over the centuries, Tenganan has tenaciously held on to its beliefs in its own divine origin. In this tiny society clothing has always been central to ritual. Today, families still painstakingly fashion geringsing or double ikat cloth, a fabric and weave found otherwise only in India.

Three of the island’s most important temples – Lempuyang, Pura Silayukti Temple and Besakih, the island’s mother temple – are also located in East Bali. Luhur Lempuyang is one of Bali’s sad kahyangan (six temples of the heavens).
 
 
Although a busy port, Padangbai keeps a human scale, most people come to Padangbai to take the ferry to/from Lombok & onward to the Gilli's. With its beautiful setting, small, un-spoilt village feel, it must qualify as one of the most attractive port towns in the world.

At the northern end of the bay you find the important Pura Silayukti Temple, where Empu Kuturan introduced the system of the castes in the Xle century.

Just beyond the temple lies the Blue Lagoon which is actually a small bay, with a white sand beach only a 5 minute walk, drive or outrigger in our Bloo Lagoon Jukung from Padangbai . The white sand bottom slopes gradually to 22M, has scattered rocks, soft corals and a huge area of Staghorn Coral. The fish life is amazing! There is a large Napoleon Wrasse that lives here, several kinds of unusual reef shark, stonefish, moray and blue ribbon eels, nudibranches, rays, squid and octopus, stargazers and Leaf Scorpionfish in every hue. While the Blue Lagoon is easy diving, used for Open Water Courses and popular with snorkellers, experienced divers and photographers also thoroughly enjoy the site.
 
 
We are connected to Padang Bai by a new paved access road.

The cliffs that border our site to the north and to the east considered a "green zone" as is the Silayukti Temple preserve that limits our site to the south.

To reduce sound and air pollution we are keeping the parking away from the homes and providing a shuttle service to the beach and town.
