Q. How far away is the Resort from the beach?

 

     A: The resort is located up on the cliffs and so it takes anywhere between 10 - 20 minutes to get to the beach via car depending on what beach you go to. There are about eight different beaches in the Uluwatu area.

 

Q: Is it worth upgrading to the Lumbunga cottage?

     A: The Deluxe Lumbunga is a traditional two story Bali cottage, with a king bed on the upper level, and a living area and bathroom below. They are ideal for those who would like more space, tradition and privacy.

Q: Can I share a Standard Paradise Room with someone and pay the double occupancy rate?

     

     A: Most likely, Yes!  We will do everything we can to secure you a roommate of the same gender. If we are not able to, however, by February 1, 2019, you will have to pay an additional $250 for the single occupancy.  Best to commit early, so we have time to match you up!
