Food

They don't have a breakfast service, and there isn't a full-range kitchen. There is a small kitchen counter, with enough utensils for two people. There is also a sandwich press for anyone who wishes to have sandwich and nothing else for breakfast! They also provide bread, bananas, peanut butter for your first morning. Just call in advance! But if you are living in the lap of nature, do you even want to think about cooking? There are some amazing restaurants nearby that you can dine at or opt for home delivery.

Cost

Now you're wondering how expensive it will be to spend a few days in this paradise? Well, it's won't be! This is not a luxury resort or a glamorous hotel, but a small cottage made with love and keeping in mind the environment. It only costs Rs. 7,500 for a night for a couple!

Best Time To Visit

There is no best time to visit this paradise. Since, it is so far away from the crowds, you can visit it in the busiest season and still be close to peace and quiet. The best season however, to visit Bali, is generally between May to October with May, June and July being the busiest months. However, if you wish to climb Mount Agung, the best time is between May to October, the dry months.

What To Do Here & Around

East Bali is considered one of the more romantic parts of Bali with its stunning coastline and vast rice paddies. Hideout Lightroom is located in this part of Bali, right in the shadows of Mount Agung (Gunung Agung), an active volcano, and the highest mountain on the island of Bali. There are many interesting activities you can do around the property –

Climb Mount Agung

This is by far the most exciting and adventurous thing you can attempt while staying at Hideout Lightroom. Most trekkers make a guided day trip to the top of the volcano. This is a long and high mountain and requires strength, stamina and the right kind of equipment. It's not a simple hike, it's a serious climb, so make sure you are fit for it. It is also a mountain with immense religious and spiritual significance for the Balinese people, and climbing it is restricted in the month of April.

Snorkel on one of the many beaches along the coast

While you may wonder why I am suggesting that you snorkel here, when this is something you can do in any part of Bali? Well, it is because nowhere else in Bali will you get to see the wreckage of vessels torpedoed during WWII. And to top it off, the coral reefs and rich marine life will get you hooked to eastern Bali's marine world.

Learn a local craft

Hideout Lightroom is located in between two local villages. So there are a lot of opportunities to learn a local craft. You can learn how to harvest rice or bamboo, or how to fish in the river stream nearby. You can also learn how to make palm wine, if that is what suits you! Ask around, see what part of the culture and traditional life of Balinese people you can take back.
