Grogak Singaraja, Bali
SELINI, new hideaway bungalows in the quiet, unspoiled fishing
village of Pemuteran, on the northwest coast of Bali. We are a small
group of pioneer developers in Pemuteran who have tried to implement
"sensitive tourism" from the outset, by working closely with the
village on every level and making sure that local environment and
MARINE RESERVE are always looked after. Pemuteran will therefore
be protected not only for the benefit of visitors, but also for
future generations within the village community.
the northwest of Bali, the TAMAN SELINI bungalows are located
between the mountains and warm sea. The mountains are the colours
of mossy green and the sea is luminously blue and safe unlike any
seas anywhere, blue blue blue, reflecting the sky of Pemuteran which
is dry-climate with brilliant blue skies. The nights are unbelievable
full of stars above in the sky. Taman Selini is few kilometers from
the West Bali National Reserve. The untouched forest full of monkeys
and deer as well as many birds and other species peculiar to the
northwest part of this island.
Traveling from the airport and to the villas is in itself an explorative
excursion and easily organized in combination with luxurious hotels
near the airport or near the shopping paradise of Kuta and Sanur.
The bungalows are three hours drive up north from the general Bali
buzz past terraced rice fields and spectacular scenery. Tall tamarind
trees line the last part of the trip before you arrive at the hotel.
There are 11 air conditioned bungalows; Bougainvillea, Jacarandas,
Frangipani and Japonica overflow, luxuriantly from the gardens of
each bungalow with comfortable indoor and outdoor living space around
a landscaped courtyard and secluded outdoor shower. The bungalows
are furnished with antique day beds, heaps of white cushions, with
white flowing curtains of gardenias and frangipani and draping from
the outside stone wall the bougainvillea adding brilliant colors.
