TravelPod Member ReviewsPondok Baruna Guesthouse Nusa Lembongan
It's part of world diving and a great place to stay. We stayed in the rooms next to the pool. Really nice and spacious rooms. The breakfast was included and you had a couple of choices. The staff is very friendly and helpful e.g. in renting scooters, organising snorkel trips etc. I will come back.

... it didn't take us long before we found a couple of options and chose the cheaper, not quite as nice room, as we had to make up for the money we would lose from my mistake. The room at 'Kenta homestay' was perfectly fine, with a fan, private toilet and cold shower. We hired a moped from them and went in search of food and dive shops to research pricing and the best dive sites.

... t help but cry at her reaction which was one of pure happiness. She erupted in a fit of giggles and smiled all day! Another great moment was when Otka, who has a very high sense if smell, led me across to the visitors, went straight to a closed bag and wanted me to open it. I was amazing to see that it was full if closed bottles of perfume, but she had smelt them out from quite a distance!! She was then so happy, and spent so much time spraying herself, laughing ...
... We double and triple checked it, we had definitely gained an hour of time somewhere over the Java Sea. Our driver kindly gave us a language lesson on the way, the only bit of which our knackered brains could manage to keep was Thank You - Terri-Ma-Ka-See. After repeating this thirty times it stuck, but I feared that once we slept it might be lost to us again. Sama Sama may be friendliest sounding 'you're welcome' we've ever heard. Around the corner from the guesthouse we stopped ...
... a really expensive top end restaurant in the middle of no where so he could get a cut of what we spent. Niomi and I are now like eagles when it comes to spotting a scam and we were not having any of it. Of course, as we have learnt to expect this resulted in having a sulky, grumpy driver for the rest of the day clearly disappointed that he hadn't got two dimwits he could sponge off for the day. The other stops on the tour were ...
... amazing sunset before heading into town for some dinner at Yessi with another very friendly owner offering us a free drink and dessert! The next morning we woke up and were presented with a huge breakfast buffet by Rocky's sisters - cornflakes, fruit, yoghurt, cheese toasties, pancakes with Nutella - it was a breakfast of kings and we made sure it didn't go to waste! Then headed to the beach to spend the day relaxing - very quiet and barely any tourists. Dinner we walked along ...
