If you have the foresight to plan your trip to Bali and around Sidemen well in advance, then look into staying at the Camaya. This open aired villa with the suspended hammock has been made instafamous by Instagram that you need to book nearly a year in advance to stay for a maximum of two nights.
But it’ll be worth the wait as you’re rising in the wee hours of the morning when the mist descends over the rice terraces with Mount Agung in the background.
There are several more bamboo villas currently being made that will open in March so make sure you enquire about availability if you’re going to Sideman soon.
On the same property as the Camaya is a lovely villa that we stayed in called Nirvana Villa. Garden walks, an open aired restaurant with rice terrace views, and friendly staff that treat their guests like family.
This villa is so homey, and you will feel so relaxed staying at this peaceful property. And, the best thing is you can still get your Camaya hammock shot – arrange your dates with Nirvana Villa and book yourself in for an hour between checkout and check-in to get that Instaworthy shot.
Hidden in the mountains of Gunung Angung volcano surrounded by rice fields and authentic villages are bamboo Houses shaped like beehives. The eco-friendly villas are truly unique in design and set at the riverfront in the midst of the Balinese jungle, The Hideout is one of the most magical places to stay in Sidemen, Bali.
