So happy to be back in this unspoilt paradise. Komang and her husband are wonderful hosts – even arranging massages on site for all. Another trip stored in the memory bank

Excellent place to stay. The rooms are lovely and clean, the food and the bar are awesome and the staff are among the friendliest in Balian.

We recently stayed in the 2 storey deluxe villa, both levels had amazing ocean views.
I couldn’t fault the cleanliness of the villa, and the children loved the huge variety of movies to choose from.
Also I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the bedding, the sheets and pillows were perfect for the fussiest of people.
My expectations of the villa were totally surpassed!
The restaurant offered a huge variety of meals to choose from, inc great breakfast choices which were included in the nightly room rate.
The sparkling sea blue swimming pool was very inviting, and we spent many hours chilling in there.
I highly recommend Istana Balian and we will definitely return!

Stayed March 2017, travelled with family

Everyone and anyone who visits Bali needs to do themselves a favour and head to Balian Beach and be sure to stay at Istana Balian. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here it ticked all the boxes for me. It has a peaceful gentle vibe about it, and the staff/crew are friendly beautiful people and very accommodating.
The rooms are excellent especially the two story deluxe villas. Very spacious, comfortable beds, great balcony views, and definitely great value for money.
And their food is absolutely delicious with a tasty variety!
Komang and the staff have really done a wonderful job putting together this little slice of paradise.
The whole Balian area is peaceful, very scenic, and just oozes with tranquility. It’s what I picture all of Bali would have been like long ago. Great place to get away from the noise and riff raff of kuta, seminyak etc.
I will definitely be visiting Balian beach again, and I will most certainly be staying at Istana Balian

Food is great Aussie and traditional. Took the whole family and they all had permanent smiles.

Very welcoming staff make you feel like family, always smiling and making sure you have the best stay possible. Wide range of sporting events always on so you never have to miss a game, even on the other side of the world. Great food and just steps away from places to watch the sunset and have a beer, close to markets and the night markets for a taste of local food. The beach is just down the street everything you need is within walking distance. The owner goes out of his way to make you feel like your at home and comfortable, willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay one to remember in balian.

Joe DeHart

I don’t know what’s better, the hotel or the people who work there! Small family feel with amazing food, comfortable rooms, and a short walk down to an uncrowded surf break. What else could you want! Thank for everything Michael, Komang and staff!
