Pondok Sari Beach & Spa Resort

Bali, Indonesia

Situated on the North-West coast of Bali, Pondok Sari enjoys a wonderful location in Pemuteran Bay right on the beach and flanked by mountains. The resort has been designed in a traditional Balinese way with beautifully manicured gardens, sculptures and lotus ponds to give you pure peace and relaxation. There are very few tourists in this part of Bali, meaning that you have this area of incredible nature mainly to yourself and the locals.

With just 24 rooms, the resort enjoys a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. All meals are served in either the restaurant or on the beach and there is an international flair to the menu. The resort has the option to pre-book Half Board or Full Board basis at a very affordable price.

For pure relaxation after a days diving, the Java Spa is situated right in the middle of the lotus pond and there are a number of treatments to choose from.    

The diving here is a mixture of macro, wrecks, coral gardens and schooling fish. No trip to Pondok Sari would be complete without a visit to legendary Menjangan Island where the resort operated regular trips to.

If you are looking for somewhere to get a taste of Bali, relax and enjoy some diving at a very affordable price then Pondok Sari could be for you.
