Enter the magical world of Villa Sunrise. Be enchanted by its charm, serenity and beauty. Set in a lush tropical garden, facing East towards the morning sun, in the midst of a small fishing village...you'll only regret that you didn't book this villa for longer.
Away from the tourists areas of southern Bali, and 40 ft from the ocean, you'll have an opportunity to experience the Island as it was 30 years ago, the temples, craftsmen, religious ceremonies etc.
The waters here are warm and usually calm. Great for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving nearby.
Our rates include a superb breakfast, with a choice of both Western and Balinese foods, internet, air con, laundry and daily cleaning.
We can also arrange to prepare dinner for our guests, or you can order in from several local restaurants, or eat at the excellent restaurant at the resort next door if they do not have an exclusive group.
We have two excellent staff: Rai and Ketut, who speak English and will assist you with any questions that you may have regarding tours, cultural issues, and help you to understand the Island and its people.
Some Additional Information about our Neighborhood
SWIMMING POOL. Guests may use the pool at Abasan Resort for a small fee.
Every morning (obviously) in front of your balcony at around 5.30 6pm and its a great way to welcome the day.
This is especially lovely at Sunrise as the moon rises over the ocean, making the full moon especially romantic for those on honeymoons.
Pak Mega lives just behind us in the jungle and is the Dolphin tour guide. The cost is around Rp[FILTERED] (US30) for a 2 hour trip. Pak Mega is also a fisherman and you can buy tuna from him at a cost of around $3 per kilo.
The sacred waterfall is around 15-20 min away and this can either be done by car or motorcycle. There is a guy there called Gede (Geday) he is the park reserve tour guide and knows all the local fauna and medicinal plants which is rather informative. Entrance is by donation and the recommended donation is around $3 dollars each and then for the guide you could give him a tip of $5. Gede is just super nice and friendly.
Pak Mega, the fisherman who lives just behind us can let you know what temple ceremonies are in the area. In the house there are 2 sarongs that you must wear if you are going to any ceremonies and wear something that covers all your arms. Rai can assure that you are properly dressed.
Unfortunately women during menstruation are not permitted to entire the temple during those days, as blood is the life force, it contains spirits and you may have been possessed recently by a demon and they don't want those slippery fellows in their temple thank you very much :-) Same goes if you have open cuts or other type of wounds that could potentially leak demons.
MIND - BODY - SOUL
The centre next door regularly has yoga meditation or spiritual workshops.
If you have your own gear you can windsurf in this area.
You can snorkel right in front of the property. There are two masks in the house, if you require more the centre next door rents them out.
You can bring your phones as you can purchase SIM cards and get a local number for around $3 dollars including credit.
LOCAL BATHING POOL:
In Tejakulas main village there is a public bathing/washing pool, the water comes directly from the mountain so is constantly running. Male and female sections only.
If you have come as family and want a bit of time just the two of you, our house keeper Ketut, may be able to find someone to look after your children.
If you want to get around the island a car can be arranged for hire with or without a driver. You can also rent a motor bike.
