Menjangan Dynasty Resort I love how neatly our tent was designed and decorated. It’s small yet feels luxurious and very comfortable.

Menjangan Dynasty Resort I love how open this bathroom is. The ring on the floor below the shower, stops the water flooding everywhere pretty efficiently. The toilet is hidden behind bamboo room separators, it’s chill, don’t be a prude.

Menjangan Dynasty Resort I had a cheeky treatment here. So lovely hearing the water splash below the straw bamboo hut. I can’t say enough about how much I love outside showers!

Menjangan Dynasty Resort Serene breakfast with the view. Choose between Indonesian or Western food. Lots of fresh tropical juices! Yum!

Menjangan Dynasty Resort This glamping spot is all about diving. We chartered a private boat at the hotel and had our friend Jack take us through the ropes under water as he is a qualified diving instructor. The underwater world here is breathtaking! Here is also the Manjangan Temple seen from the water.

Menjangan Dynasty Resort There are so many cool things to do in this region, like going to see the rice terraces at a near by village. I am so in love with Bali.

Highs & Lows

  • Dive center at the hotel and a boat that picks you up straight off your breakfast seat! I mean there are no excuses now. Dive center at the hotel and a boat that picks you up straight off your breakfast seat! I mean there are no excuses now.

  • The hotel is highly environmentally conscious. The staff at the dive centre run a regular beach and underwater cleanups with active reef conservation.

  • So cool to get out of South Bali and discover the rest of the island. You can see Java from Menjangan and there are cool things to do around, like visiting villages, waterfalls, river rafting, trekking and other fun stuff.

  • The tent is really comfortable. You always hear the water splashing on the beach, sleeping like a baby is guaranteed.

  • We were visiting during wet season, so beware and be prepared to cancel your plans.
