There are 3 spasious well maintained comfortable bungalows in beautiful countryside . Small but nice garden with flowers . Small swimming pool . Good opportunity for walking nearby : rice terraces , Pasi Putih beach . And very friendly hosts . We were greeted with wreaths of flowers and refreshments . We were the only guests here for 2 nights . Absolute tranquility . Great time .
There were some renovations being done while we were staying, and the manager and staff went out of their way to make sure we were not discomfited. The quality of travel experience in Bali is changed for the better once you stay away from the busy tourist mayhem areas. People are genuine and friendly, whereas in the middle of the tourist hotspots one feels like just another bloody Western tourist.
Close to Jepun Didulu was a flower farm where locals were picking flowers for sale in a market for offerings. The flower pickers were lovely, friendly people.
Jepun Didulu arranged a driver for us to visit nearby beaches and restaurants in Candidasa when we wanted.
We had our 5 year-old grand-daughter with us. The cottages were a good place for her to safely experience the real Bali.
We stayed 4 nights with family aged 5-69 using 3 cottages.
Everyone relaxed and enjoyed their stay immensely.
We felt spoiled the moment we arrived with kindness, good communication and many extra treats.
Virgin Beach is well worth a day’s visit, especially at low tide. High tide was hilarious however, with us lying under brollies on lounges with waves around us. Very easy place to relax and enjoy a beer, some delicious seafood with freshly made Bali sauces.
A day trip with our knowledgeable driver Made was interesting and we managed to buy some good quality craft and chocolates.
Every evening we walked over the road to see the flower farm and meet the friendly flower pickers....very photogenic.
The breakfast and optional meals are simple, fresh and delicious.....served with movie star smiles.
This is NOT a 5 star pamper hotel, this is a family friendly, family run, small, charming place where you are a safe distance from tourist crowds.
We stayed here for 4 nights. We rented 2 bungelows, one for us, and another for our kids. The bungelows are well kept, clean and tidy, the grounds are lovely and there's a nice pool to cook off in. The staff are all really friendly and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay.
We arrived around 8pm on a Friday night. Exhausted after the long drive from Denpasar, Mangku and the lovely staff at Jepun Didulu welcomed us with open arms. From the minute we got their, we were treated to a 5 star experience.
The free breakfast was delicious, complete with a meal of your choice, fruit, coffee and juice. Of course, the service was top notch as always. Jepun is nestled in the hills of the Karangasem region but just a few short minutes to the beautiful beaches of Candidasa. Virgin Beach (easily one of the cleanest beaches in Bali) is right down the street from Jepun.
I can't speak for the bungalow units as we stayed in the "deluxe" unit but from the outside, they all looked very nice. The property itself was immaculately cared for. The pool was clean and the scenery was simply majestic. At the end of our dream-like stay, the Jepun staff gave us a little farewell gift and we were on our way.
If I'm ever in the area again, I'll certainly stay at Jepun. You should too.
