Escape the crowds
Peace & quiet
Tucked into a coconut grove just 175m from
a quiet beach, Hidden Well is a comfortable one-bedroom cottage on the remote west coast of Bali. It's a colourful, private home with a gorgeous open-air bathroom (which is set in a large garden) and the huge ironwood bath has been positioned for star-gazing. It's private; it's quiet – there's something very special about this place. For those who want a romantic getaway or to escape the crowds, this is the perfect place to be.
What's the appeal?
Hidden Well is beautifully designed, well-equipped cottage that's perfect for couples who're looking to escape the world. Travellers who value connecting with nature and the soul of a place will appreciate spending time here. Surfers will love being a seven-minute drive from Medewi, as well as a five-minute walk from a very secret surf spot.
Conscious travel & eco efforts
The owners of this cottage do their best to ensure that guest stays contribute to the local community. All building and maintenance is done by people from the village; one family is involved maintaining the garden; another the cleaning and laundry; yet another takes impeccable care of guest relations. When guests ask for help with arranging transport, this is provided by people from the village. The coffee supplied here is grown and roasted in the village; organic matter is composted and plastic waste recycled.
Hidden Well is a very comfortable home away from home. The centre of the cottage is a tranquil, air-conditioned bedroom and office space, and wrapped around this in a wide, breezy veranda is the vibrant (and well equipped) kitchen and living area. This outdoor living space, positioned next to the property’s traditional well, transitions seamlessly into a lush tropical garden that is always bursting with colour. The spacious outdoor bathroom features a shower beneath the palm trees and a huge hardwood bathtub positioned for stargazing. It is the perfect hideaway for travellers looking for a romantic getaway from the craziness of Bali’s popular tourist destinations.
The cottage has a lush garden with outdoor dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with a coffee grinder and plunger, blender, fridge with freezer, gas cooker, pots and pans and various cooking utensils. There is a desk in the air-conditioned sleeping/office area, as well as a small library of books. A vast stretch of beach is a 175m walk through banana plantation.
Hidden Well is as its name suggests: very hidden. It's on the fringe of Pekutatan village, a seven-minute drive from Medewi, and is conveniently close enough to restaurants. It's exceptionally quiet and peaceful at the cottage.
