The Natural Guide Hiding in Bliss at Gajah Mina Resort One of the best resorts in Bali in terms of surroundings and comfort, Gajah Mina is worth the trip to west Bali, especially on a honeymoon. The resort is at the end of a tiny village road winding through rice fields shaded by coconut, with the deep blue line of the ocean in the background.
The location is great. 5-10 mins walk to the surf beach and cafes/ restaurants and 2 mins walk down the a deserted long black sandy beach. The staff were super friendly especially Made who works at the pool bar and who delighted our 6 year old with his drawings and Indonesian lessons. The rooms are comfortable and clean.
The different beachs near the hotel, the secret caves, and the plantations at a walking distance are just wonderful. Perfect location for surfing, exploring by walking long sand beach, plantation. brand new bycicles free for use. The hotel, rooms, restaurant and pool are really fantastic.
We stayed at Gajah Mina in July 2015 and it was awesome. The staff were fantastic the accommodation was excellent and the food was great. We were a group of 3 families so we pretty much took over the whole resort we booked the 3 bedroom villa which is amazing and has its own pool and 3 other 1 bedroom.
