Spent 3 last nights of Bali experiance in Saba cottages which is away from main busy tourist areas and is amazing place to relax, chill down and rest. Place is beautiful, full of green jungle plants (banana trees!) And designed very tastefully. Cottage had own private veranda area where we would sit in the evening reading book, talking and drinking cold beer. Beautiful shower, great size bathroom, fresh and nice smelling towels and linen, comfortable bed, and detailed design of the place were one of many of the features. Pool is big enough to have decent swim and feels super private.
Saba cottages is good base to explore area, we have rented a scooter and travelled to ubud, port to access nusa penida (strongly recommended although fast boat is not the cheapest to get there -200000-300000 pp)and explored local area. Scooter was cheapest we have had in Bali (60k per day)
Dinners are made by local cook , different every day, well worth it. Every dinner was finished with amazing French dessert ! If wanting to go for dinner outside of cottage amazing restaurant with great food and free pick up is available ( warong legong) ask your hosts and they shall arrange it all. Worth trying once if staying few nights.
Hosts are most friendly and attentive with very good English. Made you feel like at home and are most kind and interesting people ever. They will arrange anything you need any help with any of your needs. Even contacting them ahead of our arrival was quick and informative.we booked directly with them via their email and PayPal payment.
Laundry service offered is very cheap and really good, things came back smelling so fresh!
Hoping to be back one day.
