When you jump off of the boat onto the white sandy shores, go left & take a 5 minute stroll down to Pesona Beach Resort & Spa. If you have heavy bags you can hire a horse cart for approximately 100,000 IDR and they will bring you to our door step.

Q: ARE THERE ATMS ON THE ISLAND?
Yes. We have many ATMs on the island but if it is a major holiday we recommend bringing some cash as they can run out. We have safes in our rooms to keep your money secure.
Q: WHERE’S THE BEST PLACE TO SEE SUNSET?
The sun sets over Bali’s Mt Agung or the ocean, depending the time of year, on the quieter side of the island. We recommend Gili Teak for fancy but affordable cocktails and dinner, The Exile for reggae music and a drum circle or Casa Vintage for a nice meal, all with the best swings so make sure you are Insta-ready!
