I'm constantly asked by my pals where they should stay and what that should do on their visit to Bali. And while that guide would take a few days (or weeks!) to write, I'm starting with here with my personal top 5 places to stay on the Bukit Penninsula - one of my absolute favourite areas of Bali.
If you’re not staying here, you’re definitely sitting at Bingin Beach wishing you were and how to weasel your way in there. Villa Impossible’s location is as waterfront as you may get on the island which lends itself to the most magical views from every room in the Villa. Couple this with free Airport Pick Ups, inclusive breakfast and probably the cheapest waterfront location on the island and you have yourself one very appealing accommodation option. (This may also explain why the Villa is near permanently booked out.) Try your luck to jump online and treat yourself here for a week or so, but I’m just warning – plan ahead! Villa Impossible can sleep up to 4 people for just $120AUD per night. Breakfast is included and with a view like this from your bed, I would suggest getting your fruit salad and Bali Coffee sent straight to your bedside! You can check Villa Impossible out on Booking.com here.
Mu resort is the type of place that your worries of the Western world float away as you step foot onto the beautifully landscaped property. The ‘resort’ is made up of a number of bungalows and villas with each room and Bungalow being completely unique with its own quirky and unique features. (For example, check out the below killer shot of the‘Bulan’ Bathroom!)
Made entirely from Bamboo and stone detailing, the Mu Resort architecture will have you in Awe from the moment you step foot onto the cliff-side resort. Leaving no stone unturned, they have thought of every tiny detail throughout the property, including their open air Yoga Shala and beautiful cliff top infinity pool. (Ideal place to watch the surf all day long, order cocktails direct to the poolside and watch the sunset…just sayin’) Best part about it? If you want to mingle with the rest of the good looking crowd that hits Bingin beach or chow down on some insanely good food from The Cashew Tree, they’re just a short stroll away!
Mu Resort has rooms to suit all group sizes and budgets, from $130. You can find out more here.
La Joya Eco Resort is located very near Balangan Beach, a cute ‘shanty’ beachside set-up that is made up of very low-key Bamboo shacks serving up Ice cold Bintangs, fresh Coconuts and a few Nasi Gorengs for hungry surfers. La Joya Bungalows, located just up the road from the beach, sit on a stunning cliff side property that overwhelms with its beautifully landscaped property of what seems like in the middle of a farmland. As you walk further into the property, you end up at one of the most beautifully positioned pools in the whole of Bali.
With sweeping views of the surrounding beaches, La Joya’s location gives you no reason to leave. If you’re not one of the lucky ones who get to stay here, fear not! Make a lunch date and pop in for a fresh juice and a dip in their outrageously rad pool.
Prices per room starts from $75 USD and you can find out more here.
As you’re about to descend the 2000 (ok, maybe more like 100) look to your right to get a glimpse of the beautiful property ‘Micks Place’. Luring you in with a beautiful infinity pool and white washed rock walls surrounding the cliff top property, Micks Place seems like the perfect option for a ‘luxe surfers’ escape. Any further down the stairs and you’re giving up you’re A/C, Pool, Clean white sheets and private shower (Not that we’re complaining, we love Surya house for a solid $20 a night kip!) Micks place is no Hilton but they do boast exceptional service, an amazing pool, lush grounds, an eco-friendly room and all the basic essentials. Like most accommodation options at Bingin, Micks Place is small and cozy with their 5 artful bungalows and one luxe villa sleeping a total of 16 people.
Micks Place offers rooms starting at $100USD per night, find out more here.
Temple lodged is perfectly positioned atop of the white cliffs of Bingin Beach and conveniently right next door to Mu resort. This quirky and unique property serves up morning Yoga classes ($10) and the best view for breakfast in the Bukit area. Their rooms are scattered around the Cliffside property, each with their own unique quirks. Shower head out of a Tree Trunk anyone? Ah, yes please! Serving up a fresh menu that feels like everything is picked directly from their surrounding gardens, even if you’re not staying at The Temple Lodge, a yoga session followed by their delicious breakfast menu is highly recommended!
Room prices vary, but you can find out more on the Temple Lodge website here.

As much as I would love to take credit for this delicious morsel of goodness I'm about to share with you, I can not. This recipe was sent to me from a friend as I begun a journey of ridding Gluten from my life.... and this guy has been an absolute saviour! For when you CBF cooking, for when you just want 'toast' for dinner, for when you're fighting every craving for a hearty 'carb-a-liscious' meal when your GF and for when you just want to wake up and not eat cereal. Introducing to you, what has deemed to be named 'Life-Changing' Loaf...
Gold mining is a practice that has been around for decades. It has helped us create the most beautiful pieces of jewellery, before we realized the impact it has on the environment. We’ve seen itravage landscapes, contaminate water supplies, and contribute to the destruction of vital ecosystems.
As we put sustainability at the core of our brand, it is a no-brainer for us that Luna & Rose needs to be created in a closed-loop production. But while we’re at it, what exactly is a closed-loop production? To put it simply, it means that everything we produce comes back to us in order to be re-used, one way or another. In that sense,we source recycled Sterling Silver that has been extracted from old electronics, phones and jewellery and then purified and brought back to its original perfect form -shiny Sterling Silver.
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 18" to 23". Our 18" chain necklace is made from our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain. These are the same chain design, just slightly heavier in weight for the longer lengths. For a rough guide (as we all have different, amazing bodies) the 23" chain sits around or just above your nipple line...
We're big fans of layering necklaces and I'm pretty sure you are too. All of our chains are adjustable in length by 2" to make sure you can style your layers to perfection and mix them up with other pieces in your jewellery wardrobe.
Although all necklaces are adjustable, for the perfect layered look we suggest that you purchase your necklaces on different length chains. This way you get to see the beauty of both pendants and there's less chance of scratching! We also personally like wearing the smallest pendant on the shorter length and the larger heavier pendants longer. That's just our personal choice though, we're all awesome & individual humans and ultimately you get to decide how you style your pieces!
Below is a little guide of some of our favourite pieces layered and their lengths:
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
Luna & Rose chain bracelets also have a 2" adjustable chain length with a clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 16cm & 17.5cm
If you require any other sizes for any of our items, please just let us know and we will see what we can whip up for you! You can contact us here.
