Bloolagoon Villas Indonesia Bali Padangbai Review
Are you looking for a getaway from the city? Want to relax, be close to nature with both beautiful mountains and seaview from your villa the moment you open your eyes in the morning? You don’t have to go far, right there in Bali Bloolagoon Villa offers you these experience starting at $121 USD a night for a one bed room villa.
I stayed at the 2 bedroom villa which is around $181 USD a night. They also have various sizes for family and big groups too.
This is the view that greets me the moment I opened my eyes from my bedroom. I purposely wake up at 5 am to wait for sunrise! I have not seen better view of sunrise at the comfort sitting on my bed lazing. 🙂 The view is simply stunning and the feeling of being able to wake up to scenery like that in the mornings and feel so close to nature will just make you not want to leave. It is indeed a great location if you are planning for a retreat or short getaway.
Bloo Lagoon is an eco-resort located at Padang Bai, a great place for trekking and diving as it is the largest sea-port on Bali’s east coast, with ferries from Lombok continuously docking and departing.
However, to get to Bloo Lagoon you pass straight through the hubbub of the ferry terminal and the burgeoning seaside township of Padang Bai with a smattering of decent restaurants (the bagels at Topi Café were surprisingly good!) and up a steep hill where you will find Bloo Lagoon perched atop a soaring ridgeline. Straddling both sides of the ridge, the rooms at Bloo Lagoon offer stunning views to both the north to Candi Dasa and majestic Gunung Agung and to the south and the hamlet of Padang Bai and the rugged eastern coastline beyond.
New cafes and restaurants are appearing too in this local village.
The “homes” have been designed to try and maximise light and air flow and minimise electricity consumption. Most of the stone walls use the excavated site stone. Open-plan natural cooling reduces the need for airconditioning (however A/C is available in some bedrooms). I stayed in the villa with no air con but I felt it is windy enough not to have aircon anyway up there in villas. Unless you have great fear for bugs and insects or have extreme need to sleep in air-con, do remember to ask for villa with air conditioned rooms then.
All the lights are LEDs and the average energy load per house for lighting is under 100 watts. For some of the pumping electricity from photovoltaic cells is used. Candle lamps are also provided for you to light it up in case you want more lighting and it helps creates more romantic atmosphere too.
The natural coconut oil soap used in the rooms, are made by “Surfer Charly” just down the road in Jasri.
This is definitely the place to go if you prefer a more lazy and quiet town for part of your holiday as compared to the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian.
The swimming pool uses ionization with a minimum of chemicals, and the resort is developing its own vegetable and herb garden so as much food as possible can be grown on site. The pesto fettucine and generous organic salad were simply delicious and healthy.
Although Bloo Lagoon isn’t the type of glitzy and luxury type resorts or villas, I like that is very natural, and eco-friendly. It merges with its surroundings in an easy, enviable way. I felt very refreshing, energizing and supremely relaxed during my stay there.
And guess what? They have complimentary yoga classes every morning at 7.30am.
Bloo Lagoon Resort Village comprises 25 unique villas, each designed with open spaces that flow breezily from indoors to outdoors. Varied designs are suitable for singles, couples, and families. The facilities include space for workshops, conferences, and an amphitheatre for performances, as well as a restaurant and spa just above the ocean.
With its beautiful setting and unspoiled village feel, Padangbai is one of the most attractive port towns in the region. At the northern end of the town sits the 11th-century Pura Silayukti Temple and just beyond it lies the Blue Lagoon, a small white sand beach great for snorkeling, diving, and relaxing in the local restaurants.
Even during breakfast and dinner, I want to go to their restaurant to enjoy the view while having my food.
Their restaurants served many fresh organic home grown vegetables which are my favourites. Their food menu are extensive as compared to most places which I have visited in Bali. There is a lot of variety of western and local type food. Even their desserts are home made and so yummy as well.
I would love to eat there more often.
Their commitment to the environment had given them the receipt of the Tri Hita Karana Award from the Governor of Bali for their ecologically friendly and sustainable resort.
Also they are the recommended and the 2015 winner of trip advisor.
On my last day after checking out, I went to their spa for Balinese Massage. An one hour massage at their Spa cost around $27. All their staffs are super friendly and nice throughout my stay there.
I would definitely stay there again next time when I go back to Padangbai for diving.
