Puri Dajuma, Medewi, Indonesia
The 18 cottages at Puri Dajuma are located in lush tropical gardens that meet an expansive beach, home to row upon row of colourful fishing boats that head out past the breaking waters every day. The cottages themselves are spacious and all feature a traditional Balinese outdoor shower and small terrace with views over the gardens and ocean in the distance. There are also two larger suites located on the first floor and as such offer better sea views.
The small pool is just about big enough for the number of cottages and from the surrounding sun deck you look out to sea. Excellent local dishes are served in the Indonesian restaurant where weekly events such as traditional dance performances take place. It is well worth making a spa appointment for after a full day touring and treatments are exceptional value compared with Ubud or the south coast.
