La Joya Biu Biu, Balangan

We recently stayed at La Joya Biu-biu at Balangan and LOVED it. Balangan is about 30 minutes from the airport , and just past Jimbaran Bay. The main attraction of the area is the stunning, long white sandy beach and the surf. La Joya Biu Biu is a small boutique hotel and is about a 10 minute walk from the beautiful beach. We stayed in Chaka 1 which was a 2 story room up the back end of the resort. There are 2 double beds in some rooms so suitable for families. The top bed was fairly hot however as the aircon doesn’t quite reach, however that didn’t bother my kids. There are no t.v’s and no room fridges however the view, the tranquillity and ambience makes up for all of that. It is on the cliff edge so perhaps a little dangerous for toddlers who just like to run, however there were other babies and kids relaxing here when we were her. This is a perfect place for honeymooners for a few nights and families wanting the simple life. There is a secret tiny beach also just down some stairs which we really liked to catch a few sea urchins and crazy crabs with the local kids and mermaid around in the rock pools at low tide. The restaurant has some yummy food and my boys tucked into the chicken curry every night, while I enjoyed a chilled rose. The Sel Spa was simply breath taking on the cliff edge and you get to enjoy a 15 minute complimentary massage and then sink into this cute little pool and sip your ginger tea. I had read on trip advisor about the cats that are super friendly they don’t bother us at all however may others. There is also some construction going on while they build a new restaurant and some more bungalows at the moment so book your massage for after 5pm. A truly beautiful little resort away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian.
