You might be wondering how a top rated, four-star hotel has made it onto this affordable luxury list – but there is a reason why. It’s because Komune Keramas has recently opened, and it’s often in the months just after opening that you’ll be able to find a hotel room for an absolute steal.
The resort is located on the East Coast of Bali, looking out on the world famous Keramas surf break. Rooms have been designed to provide a relaxing haven after a day spent in the sun and surf. This means air-con, cable television and free WiFi. If you’re keen to go all out, book a Beachfront Pool Suite. These come with private infinity pools that look straight out to the surf. Daybeds and a dining area make these suites the ultimate escape.
Komune Beach Club almost makes a stay here worth it on its own. The beach club is the perfect place for kicking back and enjoying a poolside drink during the day. Dining at the beach club’s restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Menus are varied, with fresh seafood, pizzas, traditional Balinese, and even Australian lamb shanks. A few nights a week, the cinema screen lights up on the lawns next to the beach club, showing new film releases and the latest surfing highlights. Perfect for grabbing a beanbag and settling in for the evening.
Surfing culture is a huge part of Komune Bali, and the highlight is the night surfing events. Every evening from 7 p.m., the surf break immediately in front of the resort is lit up, providing amazing viewing from the Komune Beach Club or your villa. Guests can try their skills on the break, but be warned – this is where the best surfers flock to in Bali.
