LUXURY HOTELS IN NUSA LEMBONGAN

These are the three most highly rated luxury resorts in Nusa Lembongan. I’ve stayed at the Tamarind twice and it is my personal favorite.

SANGHYANG BAY VILLAS

Sanghyang Bay Villas: Set in the Mushroom Bay district, you can swim all you want with its huge outdoor pool! For me, this resort is a good fit for couples who want to have a comfortable stay as each room comes with a balcony that overlooks the sea.

The location is great because it’s just 700 meters away from Sandy Bay Beach Club. The staff can help you arrange the boat transfers and scooter drivers, which can be pretty awesome! It’s definitely one of the top-rated places to stay in Nusa Lembongan.

BUDGET HOSTELS ON NUSA LEMBONGAN

For all the backpackers out there, these are the best budget spots in Nusa Lembongan.

DEVADAV HOSTEL

Devadav Hostel (Bunk Bed) Nusa Lembongan: If your cash is running low or simply you wouldn’t want to spend much on the unused facilities, then a bunk bed in Devadav Hostel is what you might be looking for.  Although you will be sharing the room with others, it would not get crowded since it is spacious.

This property is also rated as one of the most convenient places to stay in Klungkung since it is only a 10-minute or less stroll to Dream and Sandy Beaches. For $13 a night in a good location, this place is dirt cheap!

Pange Hostel Lembogan

The rooms are large enough for 4 people and are equipped with a seating area. It was a great base for our adventures as we got stuck into all of the things to do on Nusa Lembongan.

It is also situated 1.5 km from Mushroom Bay, so you won’t have to spend your precious time traveling back and forth. Although this property is small, it is well-maintained with a good view of the garden which for me is a plus factor.

BEST ACCOMMODATIONS ON NUSA CENINGAN

Nusa Ceningan-the island that completes the trio of Nusa islands. It is nestled between Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan on the Southeast coast of Bali. Like the two Nusas, this small island is home to jaw-dropping scenic sites, crystal clear blue waters, and cliffs. Though the crowd concentrates on the bigger islands (Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan), this place is worth a stop.

SVAHA PRIVATE VILLAS CENINGAN

Svaha Private Villas Ceningan: With only three 3-bedroom villas, this property will give what every traveler’s dream is – a nice and quiet place to relax and rejuvenate. Each villa is equipped with a private plunge pool all for yourself. What makes this place great are the walkable nerve-wracking activities in the blue lagoon jumping cliff where you can actually jump off the cliff and feel the seawater pressure as it embraces you. If you are strong enough, I highly encourage you to do so.

Svaha Private Villas Ceningan

NUSA VERANDA SUNSET VILLAS AND RESTAURANT

Nusa Veranda Sunset Villas and Restaurant: The name says it all! A beautiful sunset from your veranda is what it takes to simply take your breath away. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean added the feature and the property is a romantic nest for couples and perfect for a family getaway.

I cannot find a single fault in this place. Everything is just marvelous – the peaceful ambiance, good location, and value for money. If you are a sunset lover, I highly recommend this accommodation!

Some units feature terraces and/or balconies with either a sea view or pool view. Let’s not forget the amazing sunset from this property, too.

Manta Ray Snorkeling Tour

Manta Ray Nusa Penida Tour (from Bali): Snorkeling with Manta Rays is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one of the best wildlife encounters I’ve had in my life. The Manta Rays are majestic and very friendly. With a wingspan of 5m, these gentle giants cruise around you while you snorkel amongst them. The Nusa Penida Manta Ray Snorkel Tour includes pick up and drop off from your hotel in Bali and all transport and tickets included.

How to get to the Nusa Islands

There are three main options to get to Nusa Penida depending on your budget and how many logistics you want to manage. Here are the three options with the cheapest first:

  1. Book your ticket: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Lembongan – Book a regular ferry that leaves from Sanur to Nusa Penida on the reliable website 12go. You then need to moped or taxi across to Nusa Penida via another ferry/boat.
  2. Book a fast boat: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida – This option is great as you go direct from Bali to Penida without having to stop in Lembongan. This option is only slightly more expensive than stopping in Lembongan. This is my favorite option of the three and can be booked on Klook.
  3. Book a fast boat with hotel pick-up: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida – This option includes a fast boat from Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida but also includes pick-up from your hotel in Bali in a van. This option from GetYourGuide is a bit more expensive but takes all the hassle out of the transit from Bali to Nusa Penida.
