Bali is full of treasures, so is Nusa Penida

Many of us Bali-lovers wish to have a time travel machine to take us to the old Bali 20 years ago. An island full of thick lush jungles, deserted beaches and a pure culture, completely untouched and unspoiled by tourism. You can stop dreaming now and make your wish come true: Simply head to Bali’s secret island Nusa Penida! Explore Nusa Penida.

  1. Nice Bungalows in the paradise!

    We stayed in the Pondok Kana for 6 days. It is a very nice place to stay in Nusa Penida. The stuff is so friendly, the food is very tasty and the service is also very good. If you have a question (sightseeing…) you can ask the host anytime.
    The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom has a good western standard and has a very good price performance ratio. They have also a good laundry service.
    We rent a scooter from the Pondok Kana and explored the island by our own.
    Anytime we will come back to this homestay. It was so amazing.
    Thank you so much for everything.

  2. Friendly, nice and clean place

    As you can already read in our headline we don’t agree at all with the previous post. I’m sorry for Daniela that she seemed to be having such a bad time here.
    We stayed here in Pondok Kana for 6 days and liked our clean and cozy bungalow very much. Wayan the owner and his family were very helpful, although his wife is not able to speak English she makes the best banana pancake (the topping is cheese and honey)that we had tried on our journey. You can rent a scooter/a driver right at the accommodation. If you don’t want to eat elsewhere you can get big portions of food cooked by Wayan’a wife.
    The location is perfect as a starting point for day trips around beautiful Nusa Penida.It’s located in Sampalan walking distance to the ferry. In the morning at 6 you can hear the sounds from the close by temple or you get woken up by the cocks.
    Thanks for everything Carmen and Johannes (from Germany )

  3. Very nice place. Unfriendly and unpolite host

    Very nice and new homestay and garden. Rooms are very close to each other and thus quite loud. I had room nr.1 which is attached to the reception and could hear everything happening in the kitchen.

    Worse part however is the host. If you want to experience how Balinese are NOT, go there. Here some examples of how you get treated:
    1. Upon my arrival he claimed that he did not have a room (and asked ME for the price I had reserved it for!!), although I had a confirmation from HSH just the day before. Upon my disappointment, he finally ‘found’ it. I think he wanted me out as he got the possibility to rent it for more money.
    2.I asked to check my lamp because it was going on and off on its own which at night is very annoying. He answered that he can’t fix it and anyway I should be able to sleep
    3. I asked whether the room would get cleaned (esp emptying the dirty toilet paper in the bin and the floor) (like in every other place I had been). His answer was that he cleans when the guests leave.
    (I was staying 3 days…)
    4. He openly told me that he did not like me and wanted me out!

    I could not believe all this. It’s my third time in Bali and I really love Balinese people for their friendliness and smile.
    This was the opposite!. So if you just care for the place,. you can go there. But if you care for the Balinese spirit, stay away!

    1. Dear DanielaQu,
      We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a nice experience at Pondok Kana and that your host did not take as good care of you, as he usually does with other guests. Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with other travellers. We hope that nevertheless you enjoyed Nusa Penida and it’s amazing sights.
      Best greetings,

  4. Fancy Bungalows with supercomfy bed in breathtaking Nusa Penida

    We loved, loved, loved Nusa Penida!! A hidden paradise, representing the “real” Bali with superfriendly people and a breathtaking nature. The Homestay was really nice, a few bungalows are facing a garden, all of them are sweet decorated, the bed is supercomfy.

    We rented a motorbike for the day and explored the island on our own, and extended and extended and extended our stay from 3 to 7 days. 🙂 I can highly recommend this Homestay for everyone – it is just a 2 minutes walk away from the beautiful beach with turquise water, in the village are several cheap warungs – aaand don´t miss “Penida Espresso” for breakfast (Smoothie Bowls!! and a good cup of barista coffee), just 10 minutes bay motorbike.

  5. Cute and cozy place!

    Pokdok Kana is a really cute and small guesthouse. There were only 2 bungalows facing a colourful small garden. The atmosphere was really relaxed and the our bungalow was nicely decorated, which differentiates this place from most of the other guesthouses i have stayed at so far. Although this place is a bit hidden in a small side street, it is only a 3 minutes walk to get to the beach. I recommend this place and would return any time!
