A bit out of the way but worth the travel if you want to just laze around the pool and read. We traveled there by private car from Kuta for A$50.00 with ( nyomanwardana1974@gmail.com).

The stay was great, very friendly staff and in general you just can't go wrong. The only let down was that the kitchen needs some work. It is mostly good, although sometimes inconsistent so can disappoint at times. There are local nearby warungs that provide...More

No crowded line ups, a lefthander point break, fairly good beach breaks, many cows, stunning nature, peaceful living together of religions and no stress. That's Medewi.

Relaxing and calm. Great for Surfers and Non surfers alike. If you want to spend part or all of your Bali holiday in an unspoiled part of Bali - then you need to check out Medewi.
